Small steps...

Imperial Priest
Imperial Priest

Well, this is something I thought I'd never do. It would seem that I am exhibitionistic after all, at least in showing my work to the masses. I recently got into Flickr, and seeing as my miniature painting skills have improved by leaps and bounds the last year, I feel a strange urge to show off.

I don't think of myself as a perfectionist, and would rather that I'd paint quicker, not better. Still, the results are pretty good, and I feel that painting miniatures is an ability I want others to know me for being good at.

I am currently enjoying painting a Witch Hunters army, from the game Warhammer 40k, produced by Games Workshop. The "picture studio" is, as always, in front of my computer. This studio also doubles as my paint station. The first miniature on show is a fanatical Imperial Priest. He is not converted in any way, and got a pretty nice paint job. This is the first model I've painted with my new brushes I got for my birthday, three marvellous Winsor & Newton Series 7s, sizes 1, 0 and 000.
