Good afternoon all. There have been well over a thousand downloads of our exclusive interview with Bryan Stiltz. We at the Nerdherders Podcast are very happy to see that so many of you not only supported the Reaper Miniatures kickstarter and made it possible, but also that you were interested in what Bryan had to say, and that you are all as excited as we are…and of course we love getting our podcast out there to many more listeners. Once again we owe a big thank you to Bryan for being on the show, and we hope to keep up to date with him as Reaper’s venture moves forth. And, just like you guys, we are on the edge of our seats waiting for the minis to arrive! Ian himself is quite literally counting the days. For the time being check out this 2 part video series, a tour of the Reaper factory that shows how their minis are made. Bryan himself takes you through the process and gives you an inside look at the whole shebang. Links are provided below (they will take you directly to the youtube page), and credit is due to the OU. You will have to view this blog post itself to access the links. Tour Part 1 Tour Part 2

STAR BRIGHT AND THE LOOKING GLASS is Jonathan Luna‘s first solo creator-owned work after wrapping up THE SWORD (with brother Joshua Luna). In STAR BRIGHT, to be published in November by Image Comics, Luna departs from his superhero and science fiction comics, and works in the dreamy, fantasy-tinged aesthetic of his fine artwork to create a tale of beauty, vanity, and friendship., “After the conclusion of The Sword, I took a two-year sabbatical, but I was always creating,” said Luna of his break from comics. “I played with photography and film, and I learned how to paint with oil, acrylic, and watercolor. I finally decided I wanted to do a fairy-tale picture book.” The end result was STAR BRIGHT AND THE LOOKING GLASS, which tells the story of a wild young woman who discovers her own beauty when she finds a mirror in her forest home. The awakening of Star Bright’s consciousness of her own loveliness also opens her heart to vanity. But when a wicked sorceress steals Star Bright’s beauty Star Bright will learn from her woodland animal friends what the true virtues in life are. “Everything I’m doing with Star Bright and the Looking Glass is so different from what I’m used to. It’s my first time writing alone, and prose for that matter,” said Luna. “I can’t really pinpoint what led me to do a fairy-tale picture book. There’s definitely been a certain kind of imagery in my head that I’ve been dying to put on paper. I’ve been into pop surrealism…
This time out the boys wax nostalgic with tales of Nintendo. Just how much does Dave love Excitebike? Did Matt beat Mike Tyson? Why won’t Ian eat Cookie Crisp? Find the answers to all these and more, plus the usual antics of what the nerds have been up to. http://traffic.libsyn.com/nerdherders/EP_12_NEStalgia_Your_Podcast_is_in_another_castle.mp3
Matt: With the release of 40K 6th ed I decided it was time to paint up my Space Wolves. I always find when doing an army that it’s extremely beneficial to do a test model first and write down how you paint certain things that are going to be consistent across the army. This lets you make sure you like the scheme before you’re halfway done! I tried some new things with this guy including battle damage and weathering using Secret Weapon Miniatures weathering powders. I’m pretty happy with the result and I’ll post more images as the army comes together. Without further ado….
