Good afternoon everyone and welcome to 2018!
No...we don't have flying cars, or robot maids, or anything like that, but we do have heat, flushing toilets, food, and unfortunately we are still stuck with Justin Bieber...
However, to start this blog off right, and to show off what I've been doing this very first day, I'm posting some pics of some figs.
There's are still WIP's.
The base paint jobs are done, but they still need sealing, shading/ink/washes, and flocking and final seals to be "complete".
So when I say: "Done": That just means the basic paint job.
Complete: Is when all groundwork, seals, shades/inks/washes, and final seals have been completed and it is now "display shelf/game table ready"...
So here's the first one:
A 28mm Black trumpet player/jazz musician from the Crucible Crush "Cthulhu 28's" line. Like the famous Pulp Figures Lines, this one has good detail, and was easy and a pleasure to paint.
Next up is one of the "American Mercenaries" pack of figures from Brigade Games. In this case a flying pilot/ace. He too was pretty easy to paint up, and has enough detail to be a charming figure for the game table.
Then we have a Westwind/OG/Blue Moon (?) Gothic Horror "Dr Jekyll" type of character, with a bottle of his "potion".
The initial priming job on this figure wasn't good and the base colors showed a lot of pitting that had to be gone over with quite a bit until there was a good smooth(ish), finish.
The face also left little detail, so I had to do a little improvising and the white highlights on the facial hair really seemed to make a "so-so" figure actually stand out better.
A quick couple of pics of various figures from various makers I am working on.
From L to R: Wargames Foundry Old West, Brigade Games Pulp "American Mercenaries", Crucible Crush "Cthulhu 28's", OG/Westwind/Blue Moon "Gothic Horror", and Ral Partha Fantasy.
The paladin is a replacement of one I had in my original D&D minis that went "away" all those many years ago.
So with these five figures basically done, this is a good start (I hope) to a productive year of painting figures and gaming for 2018!
More to come!
