I post some geeky things, but OMFG this one's gonna be geeky fer real. I'm playing around with painting my little figures again, so I've been looking at websites devoted to the hobby. Here's the good one's I've found:
TerraGenesis. Awesome terrain site, they have a forum now, which seems kind of dead. Maybe it's just the summer.
Doctor Faust's Painting Clinic. "For miniatures painters, by miniatures painters." It has a lot of nice tutorials. Hasn't been updated due to a World of Warcraft addiction. I know what he means.
Chest of Colors seems like an interesting place. Nice gallery, some ho-to's.
Hirst Arts Fantasy Architecture Inc. - "Build your own castles easily." Sells molds for casting your own bricks for building castles and the like. Crazy insane or insane crazy? It actually looks like fun, but knowing me I'd have to get some help actually casting the bricks. They also maintain a very nice Tips & Tricks Page for assembling & painting things with their blocks.
Orcsdrift makes nice looking castles and stuff.
The Foundry maintains the The Foundry Library, with many pages discussing how to paint their miniatures. Apparently there is a "style" of painting called "Foundry Style" based on how they paint, but I can't figure out how it's different.
Apparently, painting is easier using something called a wet palette. Fair enough, I think I have all the stuff I need to make this at home.
Electric Ocean has an illustrated guide: Electric Ocean > Electric Ocean > Mini Pics > Mini Painting Tools
