One Brush to Rule them All!

And in the Darkness bind them.  Or something like it.

High end brushes are another thing that you should probably invest in.

You can save a lot of money in the long run by buying high quality because the price/duration ratio is much better.  You pay 15 dollars instead of 6, for a brush that will last more than a year instead of 3 months.  KA-CHING!

Sadly, it's another type of item that is always incredibly too expensive in store rather than online.

Space Monkeys at Work

This post is a test of Space Monkeys doing work for me.  It might get deleted, it might go viral, or it might remain here for glory.  Who knows?



Get more out of your hobby time with these 3 tricks!


One question I get asked quite often is do you ever sleep? And the reality is that yes, I do sleep. On the regular too, I get enough of sleep daily. But I also juggle 2 or 3 full time jobs in the time it takes average people the time to work one.

I get so much done because I don't waste any time.

I wasn’t always like this. But over time I must’ve read every book, blog and article on time management, and watched a great many hours of video about it too.

And little by little I added these things to my daily schedule to become the beast I am now, where these techniques and tricks transitioned from my hobby time to every aspect of my life because the results were so positive.


Time management is about productivity, not about being busy. 

I’m sure you know the type of person that’s always busy, seems to be painting all the time, yet has almost nothing to show for. Heck you might be that person, I know I was. Some people even brag about this, as if wasting time was some sort of talent.

But we don’t deal with that here.

Real talk moment : There is nothing to gain in taking 20 hours to finish something that takes 10.

So, how do you take control of your hobby time? 

 Read on for 3 techniques I love and do on the regular.

Updates, Posting Schedules and Whatnots

Updates:  I'm writing a lot lately, because I enjoy it and obviously don't sleep, like ever.  So that's that.

Which brings me to the next point:



Damn straight.  I've started working on this book a little over a year ago and it's pretty much a banger.  Get it here or in the E-Book Section at the top.

Speaking of sections:

 I've added a tools and gear section with some affiliate links.  It's going to grow in the next weeks, but really, this is just a way to cover some of the most frequent questions I get about what to buy.  And it's helping me fund my gazillion side projects with this blog and the hobby.

Hobby:

Besides the Nurgle Daemons posted yesterday, I am working on 2 armies for Adepticon.  1 4K points Space Wolves army for the Team Tournament, and my single's army.  I am not posting pictures because I want to keep them under wraps until the event.  Not that this blog has a massive traffic, but I don't want to blow the wow effect of seeing it for the 1st time live for the precious and dedicated viewers I have.

Posting Schedule:

With my more writing and easing in to the new job,  I will have a more permanent and cinsistant posting schedule, namely,  Tuesday Tool's Day, which is either gonna be a product review, tutorial or something and a Thursday Lifehack, which will be a 1 point quick article on a hobby subject.  Hit me up if you have suggestions, questions or topics you'd like covered in these, I will do my best to cover those in a timely fashion.

While I get set with this posting schedule, I will also re-upload some of my blog contributions that were on the now offline Torrent of Fire, and with that, update the " Hobby Ressources" page at the top.

Frenchie, out.

Bringing AOTM Back!

The Army of the Month is back... sorta.

Well, I did finish painting an army, and I do have one planned for February, so who's to say where it will end.  In the mean time, here's my Nurgle Daemonic Incursion.
