Enough dickin around with Star Trek (see previous post), though there will be more dickin around in space in future posts. Now though; back to the task at hand.
On The Way
February has turned out to be a productive month, as I completed 13 more Dark Ages warrior types. I'm gonna try and paint in larger batches than 10, otherwise I'll be doing this all year before I get to 100 miniatures.
I have a vague notion that if I can get these done by late August I can go to Pacificon in early September with a mass dark ages battle to put on. Gives me about 6 months. It's good to have goals.
Any-hooters, here are the proud 13.
|The heroes of the hour.|
A mix of plastic and metal figures.
Here are some close ups so you can see the AH-mazing paint jobs.
That is said tongue in cheek, it's just average paint jobs, like everything I paint.
|This guys has a hair cut like he could be an extra in a|
Planet of the Apes movie.
|This metal miniature is going to eventually drop his spear.|
no amount of super glue will keep it in place.
It's gonna happen because the hand is not big enough to hold it.
I understand his pain, because I also have small delicate hands.
|10 guys go onto the big battle base (fancy phrase for a movement tray),|
which I already had done so no extra points there.
The other 3 will have to wait their turn.
That's a total of 23 done towards the goal of 100. Solidly on the way now.
As an extra bonus, I finished up the last of my tiny dice counters, because they were sitting on my painting desk and I was already in the process of painting bases brown and gluing on flock...
|Miniature in there just for scale.|
I now have 50 of these things, which is plenty for anything I could use them for;
basically any game mechanic that require tracking as long as it's 1-6.
I know! I am a burst of activity these days. if by activity you mean sitting at a desk and fussing around with glue and paint. Doesn't really increase the heart rate or make me sweat; I'm not THAT out of shape.
I have been earning buco-mucho hubby points lately for all manner of things. My Valentines Day gift to the wife was that I planned a weekend away in March to one of her favorite places. Cha-ching.
Also all manner of activities I have done. One that was quite different; preparing ginger bread houses for the girl scouts that the little kids could decorate.
One can buy gingerbread house kits, but that starts to get expensive for 13 girls. To save costs we got regular gingerbread crackers and hot glued them together. But first, to get the house shape the tops of the crackers had to be to cut at a roughly 45 degree angle..
|With the skill of surgeon, I took a serrated knife and cut out top corners of the crackers,|
making an inverted V.
It took many, many, many crackers as they would constantly break.
So not a very good surgeon.
Here We Are, At the End
I got in 3 thrilling posts in Feb, the shortest month of the year. I could be getting good at this blogging business. Took long enough.
Till Next time.
