Battle Report – eGaspy

IMAG0016_BURST002

Long overdue for a battle report here! I’ve been trying to get some warts removed from my hands and the freezing/pain makes it hard for me to paint or play, but I’ve still gotten in a few games.

So you want to airbush? A Beginner’s Guide, Part 1

Trying to get into the mindset before I paint the Raider…

I love customization. It’s why none of my models are ever painted in studio schemes. Why I spend an exorbitant amount of time tweaking my character until he’s just right before even playing a video game. Why I make characters/models for games that don’t even need them (like my custom …read more
