....Miniatures, that is. Yup, I have gotten into the realm of miniatures! Eh.... one more thing for me to craft with, I know. And yes, I know it has been forever since I have updated this blog. Life seriously kicked in for a while, and I spent two months homeless (well, living with my sister while looking for a place I could afford), but I am now in my own apartment! Which means, I actually have space to do a lot of my crafts! Woo!!!
Well, I will be updating about the other ongoing crafts and stuff as I finally get around to them! In fact, I started a new cross stitch, but I will not post about that one much until I finish/give the finished product to my friends for the holidays. I don 't want them to get a sneak peak here.....
So yes, back to my quick little update about the miniatures I have gotten into. I had never gotten into miniatures, even back when I played D&D a lot more often than I do now (I live too far away from my group, and I don't have a car to go see them often). But then I discovered Stonehaven Miniatures on Kickstarter. And I liked their Dwarves... so I backed them! And then they did Gnomes.... and of course I had to back them then as well! Especially when they made the little gnome chef with the butcher knife and skillet... which I was pushing for in the comments!
And then they did the Elves, which I wasn't going to back because my funds were quite limited... having just moved into an apartment, and startup costs and all that... but then they kept adding more and more that I liked... and I backed that one!
Now I'm broke....
But March will be my favorite month! Birthday, Game of Thrones season 4, Stonehaven Miniatures.....
Well, now that I am in my apartment, and I have a little alcove that is my craft area (pictures will be added later, seeing as I am at my sisters' house, using her internet....), I have had time to start my painting!
And after watching hours upon hours of painting and basing tutorials on youtube, and on miniwargamer, and other various sites, I finally decided to attempt.
And, because the trolls are much bigger than the dwarves and gnomes.... I thought they would be a good place to start. So, here are my trolls! Now, I know... they need some touching up... but I did that already, I just don't have the pictures to show it! So, if there is any advice for me, please let me know in the comments! Also, I am working with about ten paints, so I am still building my paint supply.
So, without further ado, here are my trolls!
Well, until next time!
