I think this is one of my all-time favourite miniatures. Been sitting on it for almost ten years before feeling comfortable enough to paint him.

It looks pretty amazing for having been sat on for 10 years.

Man Mongrel do you take commissions?  If I ever wanted a painted miniature I feel like I'd want you to paint it.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Well, it takes me literally days to paint a mini, so I probably wouldn't do it unless it was a really small number of figures.  :P

But if it was a very small number, I would probably be open to the idea.

I don't know if you're fast enough to have this replace your day job, but I think you could net (a good fraction of) minimum wage for your time if you did take commissions.

And then after all that waiting... YOU FUCKED IT ALL UP. Way to go LOSER.

Hahaha, all your minatures look amazing, Matt. I still frequently open up a window with your bronze monument guy post in it and jack off to it.

Andrea's jealous because she used to have a ton of Mage Knight figures, Hero Clix too.

Sounds hawt. Keep me posted on your distance shots.  :perfect:

I could be ten times faster and that wouldn't cut it.

Like I said, I could do individual commissions.

Well, Mage Knight figures were technically "Hand-Painted" (by Chinese near-slave labour) too.

My skill level is probably a "7" on the coolminiornot scale. Which is enough for low grade money once in a while. I.E. this is fun and I enjoy my own work, but this ain't gonna end in some uplifting live-your-dreams story. Not least of which because it sure as hell isn't a dream of mine to have a career painting minis (though obviously it would beat my current job if all else were equal).

I just like the idea of getting paid to do work that I could still pretend was a hobby.

Basically guess I'm saying I want to see your love for the art and craftsmanship of your minis be slowly bled from you in the form of Canadian dollars.

Some new guys. These are three out of four brothers who were all promo figures. Out of the four, two had really crap stats. One of those was a free giveaway so I have him, but the other awful one was a super-hard-to-find rare promo, so I never bothered to complete the foursome. The other two (the mage and the archer with the brown cloak) are actually so-so-decent figures though.

That mage sculpt is a old Mordhiem figure sculpted by the Perry brothers (they usually do really nice historical minis, mostly beautiful Napoleonics), which is why he looks very un-GW-like even though it's of GW-issue. It's a great damn figure.

I'm really happy that you found an outlet for artistic expression, even if it's not drawing. Those figures look stupendous!

I know you're going to call me on being grinch-like, but I really don't see minis painting as being artistic, it's more like a really difficult colouring book. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy it*, just that I refuse to call it art in my case.

*Well, it's more the results I enjoy... the process itself is just a lot of squinting really hard and trying not to let my hands shake too much.

My sculpture teacher told me that art is basically problem-solving. It's a sentiment that I agree with.

I feel bad because my problem is usually that I'm bad at art.
