    Well, at long last, I was finally able to start up that painting blog! I have no idea what the heck I am doing on there right now, so basically I am just writing a bunch of stuff and slapping pictures in the text. I figured if I just post a ton of images every day, people won't get too hung up on a less than optimal format in the beginning :)

    There was no time like the present, since I finally have the computing power to make all this image intensive stuff a reality. Plus, I was told over the weekend that I needed to check out the February White Dwarf. Yeah, I was pretty dang surprised when I looked inside!

    I never expected to see a two page centerfold of my Armies on Parade Lizards right smack in the middle of a White Dwarf! Even better, they chose to do close ups of my scratch built stuff. So non-GW :)

    That is the focus of the blog right now, since I have a whole photobucket album chock full of lizard pics.

    There are almost double that number in battle reports and in miniatures that have never been photographed at all. I could post for a year just on those guys.

    However, I have started to get some paint on the tomb kings. Very rudimentary at this stage, but it has been nice the few hours I have gotten to mess around with that. In a few weeks, I may have enough to begin the TK blog.

    Again, the blog is in its infancy, so please be patient!

    Sweet! It is a very impressive army, deserves to be in WD. Congratulations!

    I'll be interested to see what you do with Tomb Kings. :)

    That heavily converted carnosaur might just be the best paint job i have ever seen ;) impressive, that lava-light-effect is a brilliant idea. Just pure awesomeness!

    Those are veeery nice!!
    I absolutely love your chameleon skinks.
    Almost inspired me to get back to painting my own army after all these years!
    Actually, it probably has inspired me... Thank you sir.

    I am still impressed by your skills.

    Seeing your different colored units makes me more confident with having different colored models in my army. I thought it would look silly, but seeing yours makes me rethink my decision. Thanks!

    Thanks for all the kind words!

    I am glad to hear that people are getting that extra juice to get back into thier painting! It is obviously my favorite thing to do! I love to create armies, design the story, the army boards, the overall look, etc.

    Next week I will try to post some images of the scratch built terradons under way. I have another project under way involving a terradon hatching ground piece. That will be a summer thing. :)

    Your work is awe inspiring. I am slowly getting materials together for a temple city fortress and I would be proud indeed if it was half as good as your temple.

    Thanks for posting the link to your blog - it will surely serve as inspiration for my own humble efforts!

    Hey guys!

    Sorry that it has been so long since my last post! I have been furiously working away at everything under the sun it seems! :)

    Life has dropped a lot of rocks on my head these last 3 months, so I have had to give up on the TK's in favor of Lizards! Babo Returns!! I am repainting my entire unit of Temple Guard (pics soon), and my cold one riders. They will be my Adepticon Fantasy Championship army.

    Also, We will be finishing our team tournament armies (the Civil War Dwarfs) sometime today. I have made a few posts on the blog about my chaos dwarfs, as well as this post on the army board:

    It was so much like working on the Temple of Blood! Lots of fun :)
