An update from the painting desk.

Greetings all! It's been a while between blog posts due to a work trip to Toronto, the paints are away while friends and family visit, and I have been distracted by the release of the latest Diablo III expansion (though I spend most of my time dissecting every detail for use in my hobby projects). I have had a blast building and painting my Imperial Knight Titan, and have picked up literally an armful of Kromlech and MaxMini bits at Meeplemart while back east, not to mention some new weathering powders and brushes to try out.

With another trip home to Australia this month (models in tow thanks to my Battlefoam case) it's a month of gaming rather than hobby, but all that will change come May with a painting class by Meg Maples of Arcane Paintworks fame. Meg previously painted for Privateer Press, and is making the trip up to Vancouver to show us how it's done. Her beautifully painted Magneto model recently won a gold model at the Crystal Brush awards, and I am keen to see how here "two brush blending" technique works. In the meantime I am dabbling with some plain ol' single brush painting on my Necrons and Beastmen to keep the brush skills fresh and ready for new techniques.

See you all the other side of some finished models!
