I haven’t posted for a few days. That’s because I’ve almost completely run out of models I already have painted! So what you see posted is currently the entirety of my GW & Reaper miniatures that are painted and “done”.
I actually have several model / painting projects (a couple of which are “batch painting”) currently in progress, and I’m quite close to having some of them done, so it shouldn’t be a very long break before I start posting model pictures again on a regular basis. In the meantime, I have several character models from the board game Descent: Journeys in the Dark (the first edition, not the 2nd edition) painted & as close as I could get them to looking like their character cards. A couple of them came out great, and a couple not so great. The detail on the Descent models is nowhere near the detail on GW or Reaper minis, so there are a couple busted-looking faces, but they were fun quickies to paint! I’ve got quite a few more models (50-ish) from Descent to paint or finish painting, so those will be those popping up from time to time after my initial set of them.
I also have begun writing down some of my thoughts & reactions about Warhammer: Age of Sigmar as I try to give the full Age of Sigmar book an open reading. I’m not yet sure exactly how I’ll write it up yet, but I’ll probably do a Pros vs. Cons list, or maybe a Best / Worst list (with a nod to Uproxx’s Brandon Stroud).
So, even though this is an aside, here’s a little shuftie of the current project focus!
This is a huge model with boatload of bits…
… and due to the intricacies of this crazy model, it’s not the type you can slap together first, and then concentrate on the painting. Nope. This one is much more involved than that.
Here’s just one part of the lower leg/torso assembly, with a couple pieces glued together and the rest of the bits masked off for pre-glue painting.
I don’t do that often, and really have to take my time with pre-fitting, masking off glue points, etc. I get the sense I’ll be hand-priming a good portion of this model. Seriously, this feels like it could take me forever.
