Re: Next projects

Saga? Sabot? Not familiar with these terms. I was thinking paint them up and dump them on ebay for cheap. The only reason I base them up is it will make them easy to paint. They should pop right off. Will see. I don't get the feeling that they will sell, but if I stick with my $0.99 someone will buy...

Next projects

All, I am currently painting up some 28mm Vikings (Wargame Foundry... I think), and I was curious what people think about how they should be based. I was going to do individual bases. i can use Elmers glue to base them up so if someone wanted to pop them off they could. Thoughts? Also, working on Ge...

Re: Mirltion Announce New 15 mm Range

Big fan of their miniatures. I need to pick up one of their armies and see how they paint up.

If you are interested check out my auctions finnian3 is my user name. I put the stuff on there for dirt cheap; just doing my part to support the ga...

Early Serbian MIA

All,
I have searched through my books and cannot find an Early Serbian List. I found middle and later but no early Serbs? I am trying to paint up my next army but the Early Serbs are MIA.
Any suggestions? Did I miss them somewhere?

Right now I am just covering medieval minis. I would like to get around to something Roman, but as I said, Germans are on the table. Marius has my vote for top Roman general

"Did someone say the Spanish Inquisition?" Spanish Armies

All, So my current painting focus is all Spanish, all the time:] What is the current opinion of Spanish armies? I had the lead, as I have more lead than time, and so I painted up all the Spanish figures I have. I will be selling on ebay, but wanted a pulse on these armies first. I sold all religious...

Re: Kickstarter... Thoughts

Local gaming scene for FOG is not too strong. Gaming buddies would rather I paint their stuff and lack the foresight to see the future of our hobby. Local gaming stores have distanced themselves from from my offer, and rightly so, for they feel that they would be endorsing one painter over another; ...

Re: Kickstarter... Thoughts

Good questions. As I am still at the beginning phase I am unclear of what I will be asking and the full scope of the project. I was going to research a few full line paints and brush sets. I think that would be like phase one of my project. Phase two may include raising funds to buy miniatures to pa...

Re: Kickstarter... Thoughts

My idea is not corporate but those who donate deserve something in return. Donate $5.00 get something painted; donate more, get more. All funds donated can be used to aquire minis to be painted and donated to gamers in need. The folks at kickstarter said it fits their model. I just think this is a g...

Re: Kickstarter... Thoughts

The point about ebay is well taken. Essentially, what something sells for on ebay can be seen as a reflection of its market value. I only sell my own stock on ebay which sometimes turns a profit but usually it isn't a good trade off. As far as painting for no profit, that is done in two venues. Ebay...

Re: Kickstarter... Thoughts

You are close to the mark. I need to purchase supplies so I can continue to sell minis for no profit. If I can get people to help fund my supplies in return for my services that would be the intent. I would still sell minis but the cost would be nominal. I guess you gotta know what people are sellin...

Kickstarter... Thoughts

All, I wanted to get some feedback from anyone familiar with kickstarter. I want to start a campaign to fund my painting services.

Ebay listing of Medieval minis

All, For those who have followed and or bid on my minis, I thank you and apologize as I had to repost 2 of the auctions. One auction had too many miniatures listed when less were actually for sale while another auction was the exact opposite. I am sorry. All auctions are currently accurate. Any feed...

I will keep that in mind. I have maybe 4 BG of early Spanish Knights aka El Cid. I have about 30 BG of heavy weapon Knights.

Re: Miniatures - description Vs. minis

It is too late for spears now as all the miniatures I have lack any lances:[ So I will double down on the painting:] Spanish Knights, heavy weapons, no lances, that is what's on the menu; now I just have to hope someone wants to make a knight heavy Spanish army.
