Video: WWWD - 360 Display

Below is a little 360 display video. I need way more light next time. Camera was having trouble focusing and the gain is out of control o_O Bah! Live and learn.




The NOFC charity army raffle is back! Once again I will be painting a few squads. This time it's Sons of Orar Space Marines...
...VS Alaitoc Eldar (I'm doing a squad of Scorpions)!

The minis are here and ready for prep so over the next few months you'll be seeing them all over the blog!
The metal Scorpions were a bit top heavy for the resin bases. So I picked up some Finecast ones AND THEY ARE DAMN NEAR PERFECT O.o Truly the end times are upon us.

NOFC facts:
The beneficiaries of this effort - Doctors Without Borders (DWB) - www.doctorswithoutborders.org  
You DO NOT have to be present at the NOVA Open to win, they will ship the armies to anywhere in the world in sturdy, custom-cut, KR Multicases! 
There are other armies/collections in the works for 40K, Halifax, and Flames of War. Tickets purchased for each of these other armies benefit a variety of other charities including Fischer House, and the Wounded Warrior Project.

Check these places for updates soon:

    3. Yeah once again I'll be missing it. The exchange rate and airfare are keeping us in Canada this summer. It was supposed to be the UK until the dollar crashed :( Oh well, I guess Calgary is like the Texas of Canada :P

  3. Nice video, I like the fact that you have a few different zoom levels in one video.
    And I might have mentioned this before, but I truly admire the charity work you do. Keep it up!

    1. Thanks! I've got the fancy editing down, now to work on the quality ;) The charity stuff is really fun and working as part of team is quite the challenge. It's like commission painting but without the stress of actually having to make a profit so it still feels like a fun hobby!

By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
