WELCOME TO SMALL OBSESSIONS!
Thanks for stopping by, but I haven't updated this site in any meaningful way for over seven years. I haven't painted a new miniature since 2006, and really don't see me taking up the hobby again soon. I've since moved
on to other things. The vast hoard of miniatures have been carefully packed into dozens of Banker's boxes and placed on the studio's shelves. The Lair is now dominated by an electronics and fabrication workshop
(Steampunk and Railguns!). The painting area is still there and well stocked, though. If I succumb to a bout of figmentia, I'll keep you all posted. In the meantime, enjoy what went before.
THE OLD INTRO
This is the web site of a complete miniatures addict. I've spent the last
25 years painting and converting miniature figures. It all started with a
pack of Heritage Models' Orcs. From those two little figures has grown a
collection so large that I have a better inventory than most stores. My
acquisitiveness for miniatures borders on obsessive/compulsive behavior,
and I don't care.
The purpose of this page is to 1) Serve my own vanity with a gallery of
my painted figures, 2) Provide a reference of real-world textures and
materials for painting, 3) Explain some of the techniques and materials I
use on my figures.
I hope this site will help my fellow painters as much as they've helped
me. So get painting, but remember the lessons learned in Larry Leadhead: "If you
paint them all, you will die."
Of course, we all know there's no danger of that.
