One MEEEEEELLLIIIIION views and counting!

So it has actually happened!  Earlier this afternoon the blog crossed the 1,000,000 view mark!!!!

Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to check out these pages of madness.  It is hard to think that something which began in February of 2012 could grow to this extent so quickly!!!

With over 1400 posts, and nearly 540 loyal Wappellians backing it up, the blog continues to charge ahead.

So many things have been posted to the blog... my Lizardman army:

Tomb Kings:

My Dark Eldar:

Lots of Chaos!

And these guys...

Lots of tutorials demonstrating my obsession with basing...

Tons of Lord of the Rings:

Terrain, and even Battle Reports!

I guess what I am trying to say is, STAY TUNED loyal denizens of the Wappleverse!!!

Swamp Thing

More action from the week that was in basing.  The week that felt like a thousand years. :-)

This time around, it was making swamp bases.  As with just about every other basing video, new techniques were developed practically on camera.  The original concept was one or two types of swamp theme bases, but that expanded rather quickly.

Instead of just the apoxy sculpt/green stuff versions, I added a sculpey and even a cork version as well.

That meant a lot more work, more set up and take down between all those shots.

I included a fun segment on using plastic aquarium plants :-)

Some of you might recognize that vegetation from my beloved Lizardman army, which is getting lots of new stuff!!!  Yea!

I did a brief demo on painting to illustrate the use of the Realistic Water from Secret Weapon...

And here we have the entire collection!

It still amazes me how much more difficult these were to film, but I am pretty sure you will get a lot out of them!
