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!

Anyaral: World of Twilight - Kickstarter Ending Soon!

Regular readers of the HobbyBrush will know that the World of Twilight (Sparkly vampires NOT included!) range has been a personal favourite for a number of years now.

I have my own extensive collections already (HobbyBrush galleries HERE ) but they've been running a successful kickstarter over the last month and its coming to its end today.

Primarily for the funding of the long-awaited third book, the campaign now includes a vast array of add-ons and extras you can order, both at discounts from the RRP and exclusive to the Kickstarter.

Check out the Kickstarter Here and Pledge Promptly - we're in the final hours!
