February 2017 Painting

Well March has been a busy month, so its taken me nearly all of it to get the February pictures taken and post an update. That’s besides the other things that I haven’t really found time for either. So as the Relic Knights 2.0 Kickstater approached i was very motivated to paint Relic Knights models…


Miniatures from January 2017

Making Relic Knights New

Background Back in August of 2012 there was a Kickstarter launched by Cool Mini or Not (CMoN) to make a game for a company called SodaPop Miniatures (SPM). I had seen some of the SPM miniatures on the CMoN site and liked the general anime ascetic of them, they just didn’t fit into my buying…
