Hi hobbyists, welcome to Terrainosaur.

When I set up Terrainosaur in 1999, it was rudimentary HTML. Around 2007 I switched it to a PHPBB with myself as the only user. That was easy for me to post in, easy to organize, and easy to browse, but it had no thumbnails. In 2020 I updated it to a WordPress blog.

I didn’t port all the text over. It was 121k words – longer than many books. The old gallery still exists, if you want to see that. New posts here will have text.

Also, I’m only presenting projects I built and painted. The pics of my friends’ projects were removed.

You don’t have to view the posts a few at a time. There are over 400 posts and 2,000 images. Try the menu above to navigate.

How to Paint Miniatures like an Amateur

Miniatures Science Fiction Minis

Gift to FLGS

Yesterday my Friendly Local Game Store gave me a box of free miniatures. I chose one and painted it through the night. Today I gave it to them as a gift, to put in their window. This is it, an Ultramarines Redemptor Dreadnought (Easy to Build variety).

It took me 12 hours to assemble, base coat, shade, highlight and detail the Dreadnought. As well as build the stand and texture the base, take photos, deliver it, come back and post this.

I used one brush for the Dreadnought – a Citadel Medium Base brush. Every line of black shade, every edge highlight, every rivet … just the Medium Base brush.

As I write this I’ve had 3 hours of sleep in the last 24.
