Hobby Goal 2017: Improving TMM

I've decided that in 2017 I will focus on pushing my True Metallics and making them look as good as possible. Its a rare case when I decide to paint something just to work on a skill, but, I decided to grab an old Reaper Miniatures dwarf and get some practice in.

2016 Year in Review!

The Brush Wizard's 2016 Year in Review!

2016 is coming to a close and it's time to take a look back at the projects and happenings of the year!

This year saw a lot less individual projects than 2015. Instead, 2016 was the year of the commission. It seemed like I had a lot of call for painting things for people and ended up doing 5 jobs for various friends. Of course, commission time equals less personal project time, but the reactions I get when I hand in a finished project makes it worth it.

Over the course of the year, I made some tweaks to the site, including tabbed navigation and splitting things up. I added in a gallery to make finding finished projects easier as well as tabs for reviews and tutorials.

Speaking of which, this year I put more focus into doing Tutorials and Reviews of things. They have proved to a great thing for the site too, most of the top viewed posts of this year have been either Tutorials or Reviews. By far the most read post was on the Citadel Gemstone paints, which has also overtaken the Bone tutorial from last year for most read post to date.

All in all, 2016 has been a solid year here at The Brush Wizard. Lets take a look at the happenings.

Super Secret Christmas Present 2016: The Princess Bride - Roberts vs. Montoya

Its time for another Super Secret Christmas Present! This time, it's for my sister and it is based on the Princess Bride. She is a huge fan of the book and movie and when I saw a set of custom made miniatures based on the character designs from the film, I knew I had to do something with them.
