General Hobby – The Hall of Fame

Do you all have a model you just look at every now and again and say to yourself… “Man… what was I thinking?”

My gaming buddies and I will sometimes unearth such figures while sauced and waxing-philosophical about our time in the hobby. Such favorites as ‘Captain Space-Cakes and the Dentist Marines’… ‘The Terracotta Warpspiders’…. are a few names I now fondly remember from such discussions.

For my own submission, while photographing some other figures recently I reached into the dusty back of my display cabinet and happened upon a little fella I painted some years ago during the release of third edition Confrontation. He was going to be one of the Toughs in my army of Tir Na Bor… but come the light of day I just couldn’t believe what I’d done and the army never saw completion.

So, in honour of all those other unloved paint-jobs out there… I give you the Pink Dwarf.


I realized just how bad the lighting was in my condo. I honestly thought I was painting him copper. Don’t party and paint kids. It’s not pretty.

I encourage all of you to share your own similar disasters.

  1. He still looks badass even if he is pink!
