Video (or is that Giteo ?) is great. I do have a tree in my yard dropping some old limbs like a lepper, so I might get to tackle this sooner rather than later .

More mushrooms. I've decide that I just can't have too many, which is nice as whenever I get the yen for a terrain project I can work on these without spending any money.

Spent the night thinking up an easier way to do them. Have figured out several species... Aminita sp., morels, Russula, boletes, etc. Basically any capped mushroom.. Also sorted out how to do shelf fungi which will be the next project.

When I get it all sorted I'll do a video on the process.

Loving the shrooms. I now imagine a curious chef wandering on mid battle, of course, ignoring the carnage around them.

That would be unfortunate. These are all members of the genus Aminita... which are poisonous.

They look so realistic. Awesome!

I love those logs. I think the variety of scatter terrain, objectives, etc is what makes a great table, especially for small skirmish games like Bushido.

Thanks guys!

New video is up! A second look at OSHIRO model terrain's scatter terrain!

Again, nice video . I like the spinning table, almost makes me want to raid the LEGO stash for some motor parts and make one for when I never do videos .

Some really nice scatter terrain by Oshiro. My budget got crushed recently which means I’ll be building my own terrain elements for a while, but they have some great pieces to steal ideas from. The oranges you painted look very real and juicy .

Shrooms look great. I have a few methods myself so looking forward to seeing how you do it.

Great to see all the wonderful work you are doing. Really love the aesthetic and the figures are so characterful.

Thank you gentlemen. Really appreciate the feedback and support. I'm happy with both the terrain and the fact that the videos seem to be coming easier than before. Talking is getting more natural as the audience has started to become a "person" in my head ... if you get my meaning..

New video is up. This is basically a mycology lecture... but I do scribble a lot on napkins and go for a walk in the woods. The first actual tutorial will be on it's way no later than tomorrow morning. Kinda depends on how long it takes to process the video tonight.

The first of the "real" Micromycotuts is up. We learn how to make and paint Cortinarius violaceus, the "violet web cap" mushroom. This went way long. Going to have to work on that!

I guess this is more of a Macromycotut... *sigh* The rest of them will be MUCH shorter. This is the video that explains the techniquest that we'll be using throughout the rest of the series so it's longer than I anticipated.

Fixed! Thanks Dr. H!

@Heretic Tom: They were a lot of fun for my son to put together and for me to paint. I've got 8 more waiting for him to come home from college and assemble for me!



Well, I've been a mushroom building fool. Time I posted some pics. These are all based on real fungi.

Oh yes, there is a long list. Puff balls, cup fungi, maybe even corals if I can figure out how to make them.

New micromycotut is up. Yes, these will go on for a while and then I'll get them out of my system and i'll go back to painting my minis (which is what I should be doing). For the time being though... these are fun. This is also half the length of my last one. I'm hoping to get them down to 10 minutes once I don't have to focus so much on introducing new techniques.

New video is up! The first ever channel give-a-way to celebrate 150 subscribers. Thank you all for your support of an old fart trying to do something useful on these new-fangled internets. It's been a lot of fun for me and I hope to bring you a lot more interesting and entertaining videos in the future!

Drawing for the fabulous prize is next Saturday. (18th I think)






On the hobby side, I just finished building the "dog pack" for my Savage Wave war band (that's the red demon guys). I'm really, really excited about these models. Not only painting them but playing them as well. There are 4 dogs plush the alpha (the big one) as well as a special Oni that gives them all buffs (the alpha buffs them too). They're also not very costly point-wise, so in the now standard 100 point tournament list, I have 38 points to play with. At the moment, I'm thinking of taking the two small oni (actually onisho) that I've painted already... leaving me 5 points for gear and upgrades.



I've decided to paint them up like Riddick's jackal from the movie "Riddick". The ears aren't right on the models, but while I could custom build the ears... I just don't think it's worth the effort. Maybe on the alpha, we'll see.



In other news, Ben at Master Crafted Miniatures was kind enough to throw in a bunch of miscast bits with my last order. While I'll be using a lot of it as-is on my Oni bases (to represent them tearing through a temple), I was able to cobble together some of the bits Dr. Frankenstein-like and come up with a number of serviceable pieces... most of which will get painted and tossed into the "for Adepticon" pile of resources or given to new players to help get them started. The wall section and the little dudes I'm going to hang on to though... because they're especially cool. Thanks Ben.



Guess that's it for now. 'Till later...

Look forward to seeing how the dogs and bits come out with a splash of paint.

Well done on the channel.

I thought I'd post a pic for a change. Did a little how-to video on using spray cans like airbrushes, specifically using spray primers to do grey stone. Had this little guy as the subject. It's a spirit statue made by Mastercrafted Miniatures. Nothing fancy here... but a fun little bit of terrain (or objective), whatever you'd like. He's not as speckly to the eye as he appears here. For some reason the lights really make him look like he's got major spatter when that's not the case at all. The gradient looks quite good IRL.




I have hopes of getting some more interesting painting done, but at the moment the combination of low temps and high humidity are keeping me from getting things primed.

Stone effect looks good. The speckling helps give it that grainy look.
