2011-06-01 Wargaming Hobby

wargaminghobby.com is a blog about modelling terrain, painting miniatures and generally having fun around toy soldiers

Picture described below
The gate of Minas Tirith

Having background in art I enjoy nicely painted miniatures but I don't care for miniature painting as a fine craft. A smart theme and colour choice will always win with me before smooth transitions, non-metallic metal and detailed lighting effects with translucent robes. I give kudos to those who can do them and go back to the hobby.

I like theorycrafting army lists but I don't care for wargaming as a sport. My idea for wargaming fun is a story-based asymetric battle with a referee.

Do you know Humbrol 130 and Vallejo Metal Medium? They reflect light differently to standard paints and offer new possibilities. Like replicating the old and missed by many Boltgun Metal effect. »
