Here Be Dragons… A new RPG written by a friend of the League

HC 1
Every now and then I write an article on something other than painting.  Lately, I just need to write articles.  Anyway, a friend of the blog sent me an update on a funded Kickstarter, HC SVNT DRACONES.  That’s Latin for Here Be Dragons.  A reference to uncharted territory on maps and globes from the early 16th century.
Anyway, I got a link to the game over onDriveThruRPG, where it is sitting at the #6 hottest title:

I downloaded a copy to see that the game is all about.  The rulebook comes in just under 300 pages with beautiful full color artwork throughout, a sharp layout, and an attractive price.

My Airbrush Setup

I get questions regularly on what hardware I use in my airbrush setup.  Below I’ll show you what I use and some alternatives if you want to save a few bucks.  I’m linking to various vendors; however, I don’t get any payment for these items, so buy where you’re most convenient.

If you want to see some of the other designs you can checkout the already funded CHS kickstarter here. Continue reading

Unfortunately, ignoring a mold line or other casting limitation distracts the viewer from an otherwise great paint job. In pursuit of making preparation as easy as possible, I tried a group of sanding products from Alpha Abrasives and their sub-brand Flex-I-File.
