Where in the World is Joyous Oblivion?

I know my legion of fans are surely asking themselves this question.

Fear not, I still breathe, but due to the shroud of secrecy surrounding my Golden Marine project I can't put up update pictures of what I am working on :(

Needless to say, I have been quite busy of late, hobby wise and I have a very busy August September lined up...

My timeline as it looks now:

July-Mid August: Finish Golden Marine Army
Mid August to October: Empire Army
October to December: Elysian army repaint plus vehicle painting.

So if all goes well, by the end of this year I will have my GM army completed, an Empire army ready for all-comers in fantasy and my Elysian army looking suh-weet.

Pics of some Empire stuff I did a year or two back for a teaser later this week :)

Every Painful Detail, pt 16: Mixed Flock

The "quarry" no longer looks like a quarry.

Every Painful Detail, pt 10: The River Returns

It appears I have figured out how to manage the very dangerous casting resin and successfully make a river. What next? The Necropolis awaits.

In other news: Does anyone besides me find it strange that Drunken Gamers of Ottawa's most frequent blogger is a non-drinker?

Every Painful Detail, pt 9: Back to the Land of the Dead

A few words about superhot resin (and that's "hot", not "hawttt"), and how to make tiles in foam.

Warning: My face is in this one.

Every Painful Detail pt 4 & 5

Pt 4: More Testing


Pt 5: Toxic Resin

Every Painful Detail, pts 1 & 2 (Edit: Added pt 3)

Sobergamer here once again with a new project and a new video log. The idea (as I repeat many times during the video) is to show you EVERYTHING I am doing. Every step. Every decision. To explain all of it. Naturally, this won't appeal to most of you, but... I wish I had something like this when I started out, so there are a few who might be glad to see this being posted. Here are two videos to start with. (edit: I added one... now it's three!)

Every Painful Detail pt 1: Prep Work


Every Painful Detail pt 2: The Blank Table


Every Painful Detail pt 3: Testing Things out


Several more on the way, each with more painful detail than the last.

Eldar Farseer (with tentacles, of course)

based on the bonesinger model, I did a weapon swap with tentacley hands, and cut off the ridiculous antlers and gave him/her/it just the one antler in the back of the helmet.

The plastic thing will be an eye stalk coming out of the ground, painted like the ones on my bright lance platform.




Last of the Chaos Warmachines

Here we go, two cannons, with the self propelled wagon thingies, to help fill up the big bases I got for them ages ago. I'll probably add chaos arrows to the barrels, maybe greenstuff? cardboard? not sure yet:

Holes in Foam III: Careful paint

Yes, I know. I'm spamming. But most of the other contributors to this blog are lazyasses. So... more table. Tonight's guest star? Graveyard Earth paint.

Holes in Foam II: Sand

Sober Gamer here again to show you the next chapter in my table-construction project. One of these days I'll remember to turn my camera sideways so it records in landscape. Maybe next time. :)

Holes in Foam: How I made my game table

A little something to chronicle my ongoing efforts to destroy my kitchen.
