News, Updates & ramblings

This Blog is acting as the news and updates page for my new website,

The website itself is the archive of my painting through the last decade or more, with easy navigation around what now amounts to over 3000 images of wargames figures & display miniatures.

It is also the repository for my musings, workbench notes and reports on all things gaming and miniature painting that I get up to.

I've been collecting miniatures for 24 years and have covered most scales, periods and styles in that time. Don't expect consistency on one project here - there will be variety in project, but hopefully consistently high standards!

Thanks for reading!

A Couple of Weeks of Quiet...

Hi all,

Thought I should post just to apologise for the quiet in the last week or so, which will continue for another week to come as well.

I have accepted the challenge from my father to complete something called the 15 peaks. It involves hiking / running up (and down!) the 15 peaks over 3000feet in Snowdonia, Wales, with a target time of 16 hours.

We leave on the 1st of July, intending to start walking around 4:30am on the 2nd.

Working as I do on building sites all day, and climbing quite regularly, I am reasonably fit anyway, but training for this challenge has taken over & 3 hours walking each night has put a temporary end to painting or web-updating I'm afraid!

So thats about it - sorry for the drop-off in updates, but dont worry, they'll return very soon!

Thanks for reading :)

Finally, something which is actually current and NEW for the HobbyBrush! Plenty more old stuff to be added yet, but this one should keep me in regular updates for a while :)
