This month I have decided to try to not only actually get something painted, but also to try to do several different kinds of miniatures, and chip away at the Mountains of Miniatures Madness by painting at least one of each from the following categories:
Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame,
So, at least 14 miniatures, several of which will be large and/or multiple pieces. An average of 3,5 minis a week, or one every two days. Should be doable. Unless I go off on a tangent again.
At any rate, here’s off to a good start:
Reaper Bones 77166: Balto Burrowell, Gnome Wizard. Painted for the Reaper Forums Beauty Pageant that ends tonight. I cut off the outstretched hand and rotated it to make it more metal. He is seriously giving someone the ol’ Stinkeye there. 20mm base.
Oathsworn Shambling Mound, from their “Oathsworn Heroes” kickstarter. I chose to forgo the resin base for a more overgrown one. I had not envisioned this to be the first Oathsworn mini I was to finish, but there you are.Also, I named this one Alec. 50mm base.
Mantic Kings of War Undead Dog Handler, the kickstarter exclusive mini from the first Kings of War kickstarter. Made in restic, those mould lines are such a bitch to get rid of. For some reason, the dog handler has a distict piratey feel to it. Maybe its the cutlass.
The base consists of two 20mm mantic bases glued together. The mantic bases are actually slightly bevelled, leaving a gap and a slightly uneven base when glued together like this. I imagine it will not be visible when put in a unit.
