Grinning Skull Creative update, and we’ve scored 250,000+ hits…

25 Apr

Long time no post!! Hi everyone, just taking a break in my busy schedule to do some long overdue updates here, and I just wanted to let you know that I’ve just finally added a couple of pages to the site that are intended to show and catalogue some of the work I have done in a shameless attempt to ply my wares, which incidentally will from now on, go under the banner of Grinning Skull Creative Studios.

In the menu, you will now find a page for miniature sculpting services (which also has a small gallery of my works for you to have a browse) and another page for Wargames Terrain Services with another gallery at past and present examples of stuff.

I’ll be adding more and more new material (and old when I find it about) over time, so please do feel free to come and have a check back to see the pics. Of course let me know if you might require me to do any of the above for your own projects by contacting me via the forms on the pages, or just use the contact page to email me if you want to get in touch.

For fans of the blog, please don’t worry, I haven’t given up, just been busy getting stuff done and hoping to generate more stuff to put up on here for your entertainment, I really want to get back into focusing on the wargaming aspects of the site as well, so the creative bit gives me ample chance to get making stuff that I hope you’ll enjoy (hopefully!) Of course I’ll still be keeping it real with segments like Crowdfunding Spotlight and I have a few new ideas for regular segments that I think you’ll like as well (but I’ll tell you later…)

Again, feel free to check out the new pages as I’m sure there are quite a few new bits you probably haven’t seen, and I’ll be updating these as frequently as possible to keep things fresh!

Also thanks to everyone for visiting the site in these last couple of years, and I’m happy to let you know that we’ve now hit the 250,000 hit mark, and to me at least this feels like another milestone with the Grinning Skull. I don’t know if this is a lot, but frankly it does to me and I’m really greatful that so many of you have wanted to read my babble over this short time!! So thank you, each and everyone of you that have graced these pages and put up with me!!

Here’s to another 250,000!!!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Wargames Bakery Stencilis

7 Mar

You might remember Wargames Bakery and their last KS campaign, with their base stamps and their groovy name, and this time they are back with another new addition to the many stencils that are available on the market.

Even so there are quite a lot of stencils available at the moment, these differ from many out there due to the material used in their construction. made from thin sheets of sillicon rubber, it allows greater flexibility and the ability to bend around tricky shapes that may be trouble for many of the more fixed or solid stencil types that are around.

With many options for the designs, there’s plenty of choice to choose from, so there’s going to be something for everyone.

Already past the £500 target, it’s most definitely funded and any investors who get involved will get their goods, so why not get your hand in your pocket and get involved by clicking the link below to take an in depth look for yourself.

Good luck guys!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: TTCombat Snappy Stencils Kickstarter

18 Dec

I thought I’d point out this quite novel set of stencils from over on Kickstarter, the TT Combat snappy airbrush stencils.

An airbrush is something I’ve been lacking for a while now, with the old one given up the ghost a long time ago, but I haven’t got round to getting a replacement, but with the looks of this selection, I may have to put my hand in my pocket and root around for some cash!

Even so there are plenty of alternatives on the market, I like these, they look pretty robust and have good reuse value, my only gripe is I personally would like to see more terrain patterned ones (small and large) to help put a tad more detail on plain buildings or floors. I’m sure that’ll be in the future all being well, and those partaking in the project will be happy to make do with the 15 on offer!

They have already smashed past the meagre £1000 original target, so it’s a sure thing if you want to become a backer. To take part in the project and get yourself some, get on over to the KS page and pledge!
