Shameless Plug

Just wanted to take a moment give a shout out to one of our members, Jason, who does painting and custom terrain work on a commission basis. His stunning beach assault, western mining town, Hadley’s Hope, and dungeon tables have impressed at Hotlead and KEGSCON for the last several years. Jason documents some of his work on his YouTube channel which also includes tips and techniques. Stop by and check out his quality work.
