Advanced Basing Techniques (The Ian Files)

Ian was a local part of our gaming group, a friend, and someone I wish I got to know better. You can read about him here if you haven't before. (Ian Tribute). He was a great painter, great with mods, and he did a ton of workshop's and helped others out locally, as well as commission work. Although he isn't with us anymore his spirit lives on. He posted a handful of great helpful articles online that I will repost with permission here over the next few weeks to share with the community in hopes it inspires and help out which is what he was shooting for. So without further intro from me I present the Ian Files. (Tips technically from the beyond)

Cool Mini or Not 12.04



This week from Cool Mini or Not we have some new Legacy models that are very interesting as well as several new Dark Age mini's that I really like. I haven't seen these in person so I am not sure the scale of the Dark Age mini's but they appear to be some good stand in's for other game systems or RPG games. More pictures below.

ForgeWorld Scarab Swarms and Ork Vehicle Weapons

Forgeworld has released Necron Swarms and if yoru building Crons they are a cool looking option to check out. I was wondering personally if they would do this since they do the Ripper swarms and several people I know like those models

Also they have a kit for Ork Vehicle weapons newly released to check out.

 Anyway enjoy the pictures and for more info as always go to ForgeWorld Website.

Forgeworld - CHAOS DWARF DAEMONSMITHS


Forge world continues to drop great looking models and these are no exception. They seem to be on a roll lately it has been some time since they released something I didn't think was pretty impressive or fun in some way. The Chaos Dwarf line really is starting to stand out, and be something that I think would look pretty amazing on the table together. Take a better look at the newest member of the family of models below.

Here are some quick things to note if you haven't bothered to really read into them yet.

Inspire - Visions of Hatred

This time around on our Inspire post we present the Italy Golden Demon Gold winner for the Warhammer 40.000 Monster Category 2011. The model is called "Visions of Hatred" and is done by Rafaele Picca. Another truly great bit of work that stands out as something amazing and INSPIRES those of us in this hobby.

Cool Mini or Not 12.02

Cool Mini or not newsletter with new and restocked items it out this week. There are a few interesting things of note. Some restocking of the Game of thrones mini's, but also the 3D Terraclips game boards. I am pretty sure they are designed for Wyrd minituares but they look great and I don't see why you couldn't use them for several other systems or for some D and D type RPG action. Really worth a look if you haven't seen them before. If anyone has these and could offer some first hand experience I would love to here from you below through comment or via email. Also of note you can get a sack o skulls as seen below for those few 40k models that don't have enough already on them. =P

Through the Looking Glass 2011



This is a article I put together for the MWC blog as I spread out and plan to do much more freelance type writing this year. I also plan to re-post the majority of it here. This will help me track my work personally and so that those of you that follow me here don't have to hunt around the web for all my work. A run down of 2011 follows after the jump.

Cool Mini or Not 12.01





Cool Mini or Not eye candy for the week. This news letter is a little shorter but still has some great stuff. Enjoy!!!








Resolutions?


DFK! here, checking in as 2011 has ended and 2012 is revving up.

First off, let me give a major "sorry for lack of content" to both Drkmorals and the forum readers. I signed on last spring hoping to do a couple articles a month, but if we average it out I'm probably sitting at more like 1 a quarter. Lamez0rs. I can't promise to publish more in 2012, but it's something that I certainly hope to do. I have more concepts/articles in mind than I have time to write, which brings me to the next point.

Seems like the modern world is all about doing more with less. Being more efficient. Managing your time and energy. Etc. etc., blah blah. The bottom line is that most people I know are absurdly busy unless they're unemployed, single, and have no children. And even those guys seem to be finding things to do to fill up their time.

The Road to Adepticon 2012


The countdown to Adepticon is clicking away in back ground as the real world tends to do everything in its powers to slow progress on getting ready. Adepticon is in April but really it will be here before you know it. Last year I went and had a blast and I was able to secure some passes to get in this year again. This time I'll be trying out the TEAM event as well.

The Local Scene Jan 2012

One of the new things that I will be putting together is a monthly newsletter of sorts. I will be putting together a monthly post that you can refer back to for local events. Basically anything that is going on that I hear about or find out about I'll post information here and as things change I will update this post through out the month. If I update the post I'll leave a comment so that anyone following the comments can see the update.

What area does this cover you ask? Well I live in Ohio, by Dayton to be more specific so anyone that is within Driving distance that I hear about I will post up here.(hoping to include Kentucky and INDY in the mix once I get things going)  I hope to take this to the next level and also be able to post other store information, pictures, and results from all the events. (You have to start some where though)  Lets get started.

New Year's Resolution's Bloggers supporting Bloggers


Ahhh the New Year has arrived and the majority of people I know celebrate in a traditional next day hang over fashion. (Some of you have been practicing all year for this lol) While we crawl off the floor and try to figure out who’s house we ended up passing out in and who we may or may not be dating all of a sudden it’s time for another tradition for the new year.
