Hello all,

Since we're talking about our other hobbies, I thought I'd post my other one here as well. Yes, it deals with paint, but in a different sense:

I've been a loyal hobbyist in this art since 2005 in my first year of college. While I'm still relatively new at playing, I've been painting avidly ever since my first month of college. This will be my vault for my finished pieces. If you have any questions, comments or criticisms, please feel free to post. All the miniatures seen below are only at a scale of 28mm.

This was the only the second mini I've ever painted, he's possibly one of my favorite as has been since made into an ornament for my tree as Xmas time.

I painted this for a friend's Warriors of Choas army:

This was painted for a friend's campaign board game as in individual piece:

I painted this for the same friend as a game board piece in a campaign he was part of. He was a ton of fun to paint and I think one of the better sculpts by GW:

I had a blast painting this guy for a holiday contest. I got first in it and he's now also a fun ornament for my tree!

I painted this for a contest when the new Warriors of Chaos edition came out. He landed me second, only narrowly ><:

Here are units from my old Daemons of Choas army that I once had but sold as I had to move and had too many things to go to my new place!

Here's a paladin I painted for an online contest. He landed me a 2nd place finish and was my first real attempt at NMM:

This guy won me an online contest:

And here's my latest one that I painted for a commission for a buddy of mine.

Overall, it's a very rewarding hobby which has taught me a lot about patience. I love doing it. Plus, it funds my paintball hobby quite considerably!

All the best,

Jake

That is something I could never do...but great looking work anyways, my hands are big and clumsy for doing something like that.

I have done a few of these. Its lots of fun, but hard when you have to keep packing up your stuff because you dont have a designated spot to do them. Thats why i put mine away. Over the summer, i plan on painting more. I like the mech's

only the most super geek types would be caught dead doing something like this. I mean serisoulsy, painting little fantasy dudes be it past or far future. You would have to be some kind of anime loving nerd with no hopes of getting a girl by any legal means to want to have this as some sick sad and depressing hobby.

Nice!!! I love the overkill one!

I honestly thought you were slamming me for a minute because I didn't realize it was a link on my iPhone, but when I got on my laptop I could see it was. Haha, I got a good laugh out of it.

It's an incredibly fun hobby, and these are only the smallest that I paint. I do paint military models as well, but they're a larger scale. It's pretty fun to make a Tiger Tank look as close to the real thing as possible. I should make a paintballer....

I'm not putting up any pictures of mine now...they're not nearly that good.
I'll put some pictures up when I get home next week (that's where they all are). I have some Tau and Chaos Space Marines. The Tau have a Tartan pattern theme :P

Those all look amazing.
I'm a big fan of Warhammer and WH40k. But sadly I have a terminal case of the stupid fingers so I can't get into the painting aspect of the miniatures.

i have to get some pics of my stuff up here. im a rabid 40k player, have been since 02'. my first army was black templar space marines, then i went into dark angels, then necrons, then tau, and now im set with guartd, both armored company, and a normal guard force. i'm a complete treadhead, i admit.

for those of you hesitant about the amount of detail you can throw down, dont worry. it's actually MUCH easier than it looks. it's simply a matter of layering details one after another. first you spray your primer coat, then paint on the basic armor color. next you add trim, then a contrasting color, then add some detail to the faces, guns, etc. then correct mistakes. after all that, you put some ink on a brush, rub it on whatever you want to look uber detailed, then blot it off with a paper towel. BOOM... uber nice model.

Great paintjob on the Paladin! I've been painting miniatures on and off for nearly 20 years and none of mine look anywhere as good!
