Greetings from the Frozen North!

posted Feb 23, 2012 00:15:34 by SheepLord
I started listening to Painting Tabled a few weeks ago after hearing it mentioned on Garagehammer (I think). I am enjoying it, “Rich fare…Heady stuff.”

I started painting Warhammer mini's since before I could shave, then took a hiatus for college, bouncing between states for jobs. Then 6 years ago I moved back to my home state, dragging my bride-to-be with me, and got the Warhammer itch again and I started to collect and paint Skaven. Little did my b-t-b know that she married a latent Warhammer geek!

I have since expanded to other armies, and I have even played a few games! Though my miniature hobby time has taken a hit after there was a miniature addition to our family. So far my wife has not let me dip my daughter to bring out the detail.

I hope to post some of my painting work on a semi-regular basis to give myself a deadline of sorts to actually produce some results.

Hello, Sheeplord, and welcome to the Painting Tabled community!

When working on such an important piece as your daughter, it's best to use more advanced techniques than a simple dip. If you perfect your blending skills I'm sure your wife will let you have a go.

Where exactly is the Frozen North? Somewhere near Troll Country?

I am a little worried as to how to approach all of those broad flat surfaces... though I do have an airbrush that is just sitting around waiting for a project. Lets see how rosy I can get those cheeks!

Frozen North aka Vermont... would that make Canada, New York, or New Hampshire Troll Country? Though this year has been shockingly snow-light and warm. I have not had the need to strap a snow shovel to my daughter and then dangle a cookie in front of her to plow the driveway... though right now her favorite thing is miso soup. Its hard to dangle soup.
