a creative community supporting ambient music, art, poetry, photography...
I've needed something different to pursue lately - and I found it in painting miniature figures. I haven't bought anything yet - but I did dig out all the ones from 20+ years ago.
Below are some figures that are on my "short list" and the colors of paint I'm planning to purchase when finances allow.
I love music, and computers, and websites, and this community - and none of that stops! I just need something physical in my hands as a big change of pace. I think most artists can relate to it. This is going back to the roots of something I used to love - and uses different thinking, and muscles, and concentration. I'm excited. Anyway - here are the figures (all around 28 mm scale) - and the paints below.
These are 28 mm Samurai by the Perry Brothers... http://www.perry-miniatures.com/
The above miniatures are from Corvus Belli for their Infinity tabletop game. (I just want to paint - no interest in playing the games...). http://www.infinitythegame.com/infinity/en/
These two are from Cipher Studio's - Anima Tactics game. http://cipher-studios.com/
The paints are from Vallejo. Their Model Colour line. http://www.acrylicosvallejo.com/en_US/model-paints/division/3
And lastly, I'm planning to order from The War Store in the US. http://www.thewarstore.com/
