It's been a very long two years where I've basically had to stop working on models/games for a good majority of the time. Luckily, I did manage to sneak in several projects during my rare free days and with work stabilizing, I should have a semi reliable schedule again.
A quick run down of my last couple projects and with any luck, a regularly scheduled update every other week! YAY!
Graveyard shifts = LONG lonely days off.
The rails are just big enough to fit a 30mm base perfectly.
this post that I instantly fell in love with. Immediately stealing JMGraham's style, I attempted my very poor imitation on my Seamus/Molly crew that I've been desperate to play with.
I got my bases from Secret Weapon Miniatures. They make some very well detailed bases and the price isn't all that bad. Check them out here.
Their pigments and washes are nice, their brushes are the best I've used, and the scenic stuff really makes a model "pop".
Painting the Avatar was incredible fun. He is massive. He has incredible personality. He is hilarious.
Even if the Avatar wasn't that great, I'd still field him, because his model is just that awesome.
Rogue Necromancy was my reward for not going insane after the 3 that came in the boxset. Totally worth the frustration!
I also managed to get a swamp board completed, but I seem to have lost my pictures on that project. Not sure where I stuck them, but I'll try to get a few new pics snapped when I have some free time.
I used some water effects from Woodland Scenic and not only are they incredibly expensive, but the stuff is terrible. Not only did it never dry solidly, even a year later, but over time bubbles started forming on the surface.
It would look awesome except when you touch a bubble, it collapses on itself and looks like a broken plastic dome. Multiply that over a thousand all over the board. BLAH.
Finally, something I needed to do after 80hr weeks, 6 weeks straight, no days off.
I'm sure I would have axed someone if I hadn't vented in the most fun way possible.
(Thank God for children bathroom crayons!)
