A Year in Pictures 2018

Well it’s been a long year and I have been spotty at best with keeping up with this, hence the delay in getting it out there.

I set out to keep track of how many models I paint in a year, not with a specific goal in mind or as a figure to beat, but to just have a look at the numbers. So without further ado my painted figure count for 2018 was…

175

Not a bad number to be honest, but this year I think I’ll break it down even more. I want to look at how many figures I paint for each game that comes my way, board game, tabletop, or anything else that may happen. This is one ofthe things I’ll be adding to my painting goals for the year, which I’ll talk about soon.

Anyway, enough rambling, here’s the 175 models I painted this year…

The Beginnings of a Harley Quinn Crew!

A few months back my lovely wife got me a fair amount of Knight Models Joker Crew models, unfortunately it was right around the time I started a commission for a Joker Crew. This meant all my enthusiasm for the project went into the commission, which turned out exactly how I would have wanted mine to. Whilst I enjoyed it enough to do the same with mine, I felt something different would be a good change of pace, especially since I’ve not really strayed from the Knight Models schemes when painting their models, other than with that commission.

This led me to the idea of a Harley Quinn based crew, and I have to admit I took heavy inspiration from the Arkham City: Harley Quinn’s Revenge DLC pack…

I started off with a few basic guys…

Harley-1 Harley-2

And also a couple of the Shield Clowns, on which I used the shields to really show off their allegience :)…

Harley-3 Harley-4

Although I have found out since starting to paint these guys you can now only take one shield henchman :(. Really pissed that I won’t be able to use both in the same crew, but if it helps make the game better I’ll just have to live with it.

I’ve also begun working on some of the more elite henchmen, trying to add something a bit more special with them…

Harley-5 Harley-6

Sitting behind these guys on the painting queue are some of the characters to lead the pack in the form of both versions of Harley…

Harley-7

and Mr Hammer, who I have converted with some cutting and a touch of greenstuff to make him fit in with the rest a little better…

Harley-8 Harley-9

In all honesty I struggle to work with greenstuff so I’m really pleased with how he has turned out 🙂

Last but not least is a couple of objectives for them…

Joker-Objectives

I might try and make these a bit more Harley than Joker, but not sure what I want to do yet 🙂
