A Month in Pictures – September

September had a couple of milestones to celebrate. The first of which is over 100 miniatures painted in 2018! If I’m honest I was hoping this would have been acheived a lot earlier in the year but my focus has been on other, more important, things. I’m still very happy with it and I know if my recent painting spurt is anything to go by,  that total will be shooting up! The second milestone is not really painting related, but it see’s my return to playing Middle Earth Strategy Battle game from Games Workshop. Me and Lord of the Rings have a history in the hobby, which I’ll be writing about soon. Anyway onto the models from this month…

Models Painted: 12

And that’s us all caught up! Not as much as I would have liked in a few of the months but it’s been a fairly hectic year since March, hence the massive gap between posts.

A Month in Pictures – February 2018

The second month roles by and it seems to be the month of franchises, with Star Wars, Dr. Who and Batman all being represented.

I’m happy with the progress I made this month. Nothing to really challenge myself, or an attempt at a new technique though, so I need to ensure I pursue this in March.

Let’s take a look at all of the models I painted this month…

Painted in February: 22

A Month in Pictures – January 2018

So the new year has arrived and I wanted to add a wee progress marker to the blog each month, so I can take stock of how much mini’s I actually get through in a year. It’s also so I can track my progress, particularly in regards to the hobby goals I’m giving myself(more on that another time), and see how far I can push myself.

Let’s take a look at all of the models I painted this month…

Imperial Assault – More Empire Reinforcements!

This week I’ve been hard at work trying t add more reinforcements to the Empire see of my Imperial Assault set, still on that quest to providing a fully painted mission to my campaign players. The first thing I’ve been working on is some Viper Probe Droids…

Great models, but horrible to clean old lines from and I think they may need repaired often as they are only loosely attached to that base. These show off what I’m doing with the rim of my bases well though. Grey for standard deployments and red for the elite deployments, and as with previous groups I’ve used ProTech Models stencils to differentiate any that are the same.

I also tackled another group of Stormtroopers…

I want all my standard groups of Stormtroopers to be standard, run of the mill white but for the elite groups I wanted to do something a bit different. For this group I chose to do them as Shadowtroopers. I was inspired by a cloaking device upgrade that I have received in the campaign, and to keep things thematic I’ve decided I’ll only use it on this group. For the next elite group I think I’ll be doing them as Shocktroopers 🙂

Tabletop Gaming Magazine – Star Saga Painting Guide!

Let’s take a peek at the latest article we have completed for issue 14 of Tabletop Gaming Magazine.

This month’s guide covers the villains from Mantic Games Star Saga, a sci-fi dungeon crawler set within the Warpath universe. Covering each of the 5 ‘bosses’ of the story set out within the Eidas Contract, the first mission book of what we hope will be many more. Here’s a look at the 5 big bads:


That’s only 5 out of 35 miniatures for the game, so keep an eye out for future guides for the rest of the miniatures!

Imperial Assault – Scum Reinforcements!

ig-88

I’ve been painting up even more Imperial Assault miniature’s in an attempt to let my players have at least one mission in our next session were everything we use is fully painted. This time I’ve been focussing on getting some mercenaries ready in the form of infamous bounty hunter IG-88 and a couple of Trandoshan hunters…

trandoshans

Whilst not much work was required on IG, I am really pleased how he turned out, especially since I didn’t want him to just be base metal. I wanted him to be a bit more dirtied up and well worn looking. I’m very pleased with how the Trandoshans turned out, particularly the flesh. I knew straight off the bat I wanted the flesh to be different colours and the pairing to be unified by the colour of the overalls. The only thing I’m not sure I like is the fact that when looking at the overalls combined with the white collar, all I can think of is this…

Maybe the Zorn have joined Star Fleet?
