The Quest for the Perfect Wash, part 1

   I like the idea of a wash. I do. It saves countless hours of detailing when you are painting minis. But when you are trying to paint up an entire zombie apocalypse, you really want to be able to base coat them, wash them, and be done. You really don’t want to go back in and highlight a thousand zombies. Not unless you’re that rare gamer that had an obnoxiously lucrative stock brokering career and decided to retire early to do nothing but paint miniatures. If there even is such a thing.

One for the Cabinet- Street Gladiator by Comfy Chair Games

What is that I see? Is that a smiley face in my Spinespur column on the LXG Painting board? Why, yes it is! I have just finished my last, lovely Spinespur model. And here he is, the Street Gladiator.

Miniature 13- Bringing a small band of 32mm specialists to Kickstarter

Photo original
Kickstarter season is back in full swing.  We've got Kickstarters for board games, tabletop games, new miniatures lines, and new companies.  One of these first-time runners is Miniature 13, also known among abbreviated circles as M13.  They don't yet have a game, but what they do have are some really nice looking pieces you should give a look at. Quickly.  Because you only have a week left.

Zombie of the Month February 2015- The Lovely Ladies of Malifaux, Part One: Dead Doxies (metal edition)

   I love dead hookers. 

   There, I said it. I admit it. I love all zombies, but the zombies I love most are zombies with something special about them. And, at least for me, any zombie that looks like it was already walking the streets before it became undead has a story, and that makes it special. So I love zombie hookers. They're like the "Brides of Dracula" of the zombie world- beautiful, hideous, and deadly all at once. And no one does undead hookers like Malifaux. So, here they are, the first in what I hope will eventually be several editions of Malifaux Ladies:

A mind of Metal and Machine: Cybertronic Mirrormen Unboxed

The Mirrormen had always been a bit of an odd duck in Warzone.  In one addition they were counter-espionage and drew attention to themselves so other units could sneak past, in another they were sneak-suited like the Predator.  What did Prodos decide?  "Why not both?"

   All-righty, folks! It is a new year, with new models destined to be painted ! (okay, and some older ones, too). Since several of us here at LXG have made New Year hobby resolutions related to painting, we need to keep an eye on our painting numbers. So, here it is, the LXG Painting board as it stands at the end of January 2015!
