About a week or so ago, a friend of mine was over at the house for a game and were talking about the site here. He had a great suggestion, so I thought it was time to see if we could do it here or not.

While I do get a lot of artwork here for the site with our pics of the week, I do very little to promote a large part of our hobby.... Painting Miniatures. So here is what it is going to be.


If you have a set of models you think are painted well, send in a set of 3 to 5 pics or so. Every week, I will pick 1 artist to spotlight based on what I have available that have been sent to me. Send your best, with the pictures to show them off, and you will get an article dedicated to your work or army.

Please include a brief couple paragraphs about either yourself and/or the models you are showing off in the pics. If you want to share some tips or methods used on the models shown, that would also be fantastic. Please include the online or other name that you want used in the article.

If you paint models for others as a business, or have a blog, by all means this is a perfect opportunity to show off what you can do, and get a link to your site or business.

Please note. My goal is to do this once a week, but if a lot of amazing work gets sent in, I will start doing it more than that. Do not be afraid to show off more than one of models, or send in a couple sets. While I will only spotlight you once a month, I have no problem posting up someone more than once in the following months.

I am also trying to figure the best title for the series. "The Best in Painted Miniatures" is what I have so far.

When you send in a set of pictures, please give me time to respond. I get behind in responding to emails. If I do not respond, it does not mean your pics will not get shown, it means either another set is going up first or I have not gotten to the emails yet.

Please send to natfka@live.com

  1. Nice! This was something I felt was missing. Will this include conversions as well, or perhaps that's something for the future?

    1. Conversions as well. Perhaps it should be "The Best in Miniatures" rather than the best in painted miniatures.

  2. Sounds interesting, I'll be looking forward to it. And to possible steal the best ideas, of course.

    1. Oh my! I would never steal ideas - mainly because they are free - but also i merely tend to borrow, liberate or set free good ideas, but never steal. I look forward to this segment!

  3. This should give me some incentive to finish my baneblade... Then I won't have to look at the pile of unassembled grey plastic every time I do some modelling!

  8. This sounds like a great idea to me. It will be a nice way to publicise people's blogs and show off their nicely painted models. I'll have to send you some of my photos.
