Painting Table #8 2017

This post has been a bit delayed. Mainly because I have been painting and trying new things and every time I thought about writing a post I did the "after I finish this part" thing.

First, I painted the last of my frostgrave stuff, then I decided to do all the bases on all the stuff I painted recently. I tried the GW texture paint mourn mountain snow and see why many people are disappointed with it. I think it might be great for terrain were you can do small clumps of snow on ledges and stuff but for bases even if you really pile it on it still looks a bit weird.

Then, while touching up the minis, I accidentally put way to much paint on the pallet. But it was the right color for finishing off this stuff so I broke it out. I am now somewhere around 75% done them. I mainly need to do the black and then clean up some mistakes and they will be done.

But that's not all. It's not really painting table but it is model related. I broke out my copy of MERCS Recon: assassination protocol and gave it a spin. Since it was my first game I was a bit confused during it but still had a lot of fun. I had printed off other factions boards so I could play my texico or ISS. I played the ISS. I know I made a lot of mistakes in terms of threat and I think I messed up the breach and clear I was doing. Unfortunately my oldest came in and scattered a bunch of the bits all over in a tantrum so I couldn't finish. But I will definitely be trying it again. I think I may paint up the other models for that soon as well.

More as I get it done.

Painting Table #7 2016

This updates been coming for awhile. I held off partly to finish the models and then got swamped with the new job. But I finished off  the 19 man warband for frostgrave. There are only a few models left now for me to finish in order to finish off this goal so I may go through and finish them off before moving on.

Painting Table #6 2016

The post is a little late mainly due to surprise work and other issues. But here is an update of what I have been working on.

First, I assembled and cleaned up a bunch of minis for frostgrave, TNT and rouge stars. Got some demons and constructs. A robot and pirate type guy, 3 rats and then the peace keepers.

Then of course I have been working on this painting of the other warband I made for frostgrave. It totals 19 models but with everything else I finished last year it will give me all the same options as my less nice warband.

After this round of painting I will dig in my ready box to see what is next. Not as much progress as I would like but I will try and pick the pace  back up.

More as I get it done.
