Hello, my name is Tim Spinelli, and this is my personal hobby website. Welcome!
I am a semi-professional miniature painting enthusiast, which is another way of saying that I’m a bit too passionate about tabletop games and the associated miniatures. I enjoy playing a wide variety of these games (Warhammer 40k, Malifaux, D&D, etc…) but in reality the vast majority of my hobby time is spent painting and thinking about the fictional worlds these miniatures inhabit. Sometimes I do commission painting for others or sell miniatures I’ve painted, but not at the moment. If I decide to do so again there will be a link here to a Commissions tab. As of the time of writing, I am branching out into the more artistic aspect of the hobby, painting things to be displayed in a cabinet rather than on a gaming table.
What you can expect to find here:
I post pictures and discuss my current hobby projects, as well as painting tutorials and that sort of thing.

I write background “fluff” for my armies, warbands, gangs, etc… Some of the most fun I have in this hobby is using the games to tell stories together, and you’ve gotta have fleshed-out characters for that. I also write up the stories of those games and how they influence the overall narrative.
I also use this blog to get ideas out of my head and into a space where they won’t distract me from the current projects. They’ll always be here for me to return to later if I’m looking for something new or need inspiration, but most of these will never have a physical incarnation. I’m toying with the notion of just creating a single miniature for many of these to scratch the hobby itch but we’ll have to see what actually ends up happening.
