The State of Brush Wizard 2015

Now seems like as a good a time as any to go over the state of my little blog and what I I'm planning for the future. This past year has been going really well for projects and I have no sign of crafter's block coming anytime soon. In fact, the complete opposite has happened and I'm drowning in ideas currently and have a bunch of projects ongoing. That said, I made up a bit of a to-do list of the projects, with no set order I'm hoping to complete them in. Some of these have been mentioned before, others haven't.

#WAAC Ironclad Dreadnought Complete!

It's actually been done for a few days now, but I've been fighting my camera/lighting set up. I had planned on taking photos outside in the natural light, but that went south when the weather turned from nice 60s to frigid 30s out of nowhere. But, the battle was won and I'm now happy with my picture taking endeavors. Without further ado, here is my contribution to the #WAAC 40k Army Raffle, the Ironclad Dreadnought!

WIP: The Great Cyclopean Gemstone Heist! - Painting #2

It's back to work on the Great Cyclopean Gemstone Heist and I'm currently drawing out the second painting.

My First Ever Warhammer 40k Army - Adeptus Mechanicus

It's happened.

The pull of Warhammer 40k has gone from playing video games and a once in awhile need to paint or convert a mini and melded into a full on army build... And I blame the new Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii faction and Adepticon. These guys are just so cool and have a really neat steampunk vibe going.

Because of them, I have ordered a bunch of the new models, along with the new Codex for the faction. I even went to a local game store and picked up the Warhammer 40k rule book and have been reading up on the rules.

WIP: #WAAC Ironclad Dreadnought - Laying Down Some Color

Progress continues on the WAAC Ironclad Dreadnought. I now have all of the weaponry painted with metallics and the first 3 steps of the Green color scheme have been done. Its been pretty steady work, though I am working with really thin paint to try and keep the armor plating smooth, that means I have to wait for dry time a bit more.

Super Dungeon Explore: Forgotten King Arrives! - Wave 1

It's been just over a year since the Kickstarter campaign for Super Dungeon Explore: Forgotten King launched and now I have part of my rewards! Because of the way Chinese New Year landed, Soda Pop decided that it was in the best interest of everyone to ship in two waves, rather than one. A decision I am very glad that they went with!

Joining the Battle Against the Darkspace Calamity!

If you have been reading for awhile, last year I did a week long marathon of posts that I dubbed the Week of Relic Knights. Within, I went over each faction that I had gotten in the Kickstarter, which were Cerci Speed Circuit, Black Diamond, Doctrine and Noh Empire. I added in my thoughts and pictures of each model, post assembly as well.

WIP: #WAAC Salamanders Ironclad Dreadnought - Arrival and Assembly

The #WAAC raffle is gaining a ton of steam! As of this writing, there are 18 different people from across the world volunteering to paint minis for the Salamander Space Marines, with an army list pushing a total of 3500 points!
