"Easy, Breezy, Beautiful" - Blog New Look

Friends, Romans, and Caesurians, welcome back to The Art of Caesura!

Long time fans might not have recognized the place immediately, but I assure you, you are in the right spot; this is still the Art of Caesura you know and love! 

I'm doing some pre-spring cleaning and with the third birthday just past, I thought it was about time to spruce up the blog a bit. I'm always looking for ways to improve The Art of Caesura, and in the past, have created a logo, added a search bar, and re-titled all of my posts to be more descriptive! If you have any other ideas for improvements, please feel encouraged to leave them in the comments section below. 

Today is the first of two "behind the scenes" things that I've been wanting to do for a while: the first is to update the look of the blog! The second thing will be the topic of next week's post.

In regards to the "look of the blog," from the get-go I had always wanted a "landing page" for the blog; y'kn…

Welcome back, gentles all, to another Friday on The Art of Caesura!
After a break of a couple weeks, while we reveled in blog birthday festivities, we're back with the last few models from The World of Smog: On Her Majesty's Service. And today, we're looking at John Brown.

I mentioned, when I was talking about Parvin a few weeks ago, that painting the busts of the heroes in this game provides another fun challenge; I'm trying to match their paint schemes to the full-body ones that I've previously posted. 

Painting John Brown's bust was much easier than his full body sculpt was for one main reason: tartan (or lack thereof)! His bust doesn't display any of the tartan bits (bagpipe and kilt) that were on his full-body mini. 

It does have a lot of other nice de…

Welcome back to the post-birthday glow on The Art of Caesura!
If you didn't get a chance to join us for The Art of Caesura's 3rd birthday last week, I urge you to now. I always have great fun looking back over the past year: the goals, the models...and then ahead to the future!
At the end of last week's post, the special birthday "miniature" was revealed to be the dreaded DREAD MAW!!

I have been quietly resisting building and painting Blackstone Fortress for the past couple weeks while I ferrited away on this guy. And what a great model it is!
There is just so much detail on this big miniature. You can see the veins pulsating out of his body and the chitinous plates and skin and scale texture is excellent! And that's without even mentioning the carefully sculpted (and carefully painted!) millions of teeth in his eponymous…

HAPPY 3RD BIRTHDAY!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE ART OF CAESURA!!


Three years old! THREE YEARS OLD!! Can you believe it!? Well maybe you can, but I can barely believe it. When I started this little blog three years ago, I didn't know how long I'd be able to keep the weekly pace up, but here we are, 159 posts later and still going strong!! I have all of you to thank for it. I know it sounds cliché but being several hours from my nearest hobby centre, you guys are my community, and it's your views and comments that help encourage me to keep striving in my hobby.
This is always my favourite post of the year, and I hope you enjoy it too! I love it because it gives us a chance to pause (a caesura within The Caesura), look back over all we've accomplished this past year, and gaze to the fun that lies ahead!
Let's start with a fancy visual look at the blog:

But what does it all mean? Well, compared to last year, we've diversified a bit. I mentioned last year that I wanted to bring some of the "…
