Another win!

I've just been informed that i've taken 2nd place in the Fantasy section of the Reaper Miniatures painting Contest!  I'm incredibly pleased with myself as the standard of entry was really really high with some professional painters entering.

Its nice to be appreciated!

So my very first blog post had a picture of an Ogre I converted and painted for the Golden Demon painting contest about 20 years ago.  It was really quite terrible.  That was the last painting competition I entered and I cheerfully accept that I am not a real artist, merely a semi talented amateur that knows a few tricks.

Fast forward 2 decades and I paint just for fun and for the benefit of my Role Playing group.  But I entered the Klaus model that I painted recently (see previous posts) in a competition for kicks and despite there being some really nice models in competition against poor old Klaus he actually won!  

Rocket Propelled Games ( are a new company (actually a group of gamers) who want to make decent good quality terrain pieces for other gamers.  I really like the direction they are taking and would recommend keeping a close eye on them and their upcoming Kickstarter campaign. 

I was delighted to be picked as their first featured miniature.  Thanks very much RPG Games!
