A very unexpected journey: Itsy bitsy spider...

Here's something that seemed very appropriate for this day!  We won't be able to see the Hobbit today, perhaps next week.  But I hope it will be fun!

I wanted to follow up on the conversion article I did on this piece over the weekend, as well as the lava painting post.  Imagine about a dozen of these accompanied by the Spider Queen and some Morghul Knights!  All on the same type of lava bases...

Also, I wanted to take this opportunity to offer some fresh "Thank you's" to all those who have jumped on board with the Beta testing!  It looks like it will be just the ticket to securing the better editing software that will get us on the road to filming DVD's much quicker!

While the immediate use for the camera and software is all about the kickstarter DVD's, I am looking forward down the line to making some nifty battle reports with that setup!

The still photography reports are nice and quick, but Rich and I want to step that up when it comes to those special games with pre-set story lines, etc.

Also, another use I see for the camera is to photograph large pieces, such as my Tomb Kings army board, my dioramas, and even big vehicles such as my Dark Eldar Tantalus.  Yes, you heard that right!

I just don't think still images will really capture it well.  My plan is to put it on a carousel, keeping the camera in place and turning the carousel.  I already have some of those from past sculpting projects


  1. Badass spider, but badass enough to not be burn by lava ? :)

    1. The key is all about speed! That and lots of legs...
