A hot time at the Wandering Dragon Shoppe

It was quite the beehive of activity again at the Wandering Dragon.  Lots of stuff going on... the big D & D group, demo games by Chad, Malifaux, Magic and more.

In the midst of this maelstrom, I was painting more lava bases.  Here are a few pics from the evening, such as this early stage photo...

As you can see, I was also finishing off some more spiders!  The darker colors have been added to the lava areas...

And then some darker glazes and washes on the rocky parts.

I was time to test some lava OSL on the Legion of Everblight starter set that I got from Adepticon.  It's been a while since I did the major OSL, and that video is going to filmed soon... so time to practice!

I wanted to try out as many different surfaces as possible, so that is why I have been doing the spiders and the starter set.

Towards the ends of the evening, I put a few darker glazes on what I was working on...

The Big Guy has a way to go yet, but he has a good start!

I was able to get a whole batch of new weathering powders at the Dragon Shoppe, and I will be using those to do some effects on the Legion minis!  Stay tuned!


  1. Can I ask, how the hell do you manage to fit all this painting in? How many hours a day do u normally paint?
    Great stuff as always.

    1. Typically 12-18 hours a day, 7 days a week. A 'light' day is anything less than 10 hours...

  2. Wow, that's a full time job then. Understand now how you take your models to the next level than us mere mortals lol

    1. Yes, such is the life of a mini painter, if you want to pay bills :-)

  3. I love the lava bases. Brill. I may try it out myself.
