The Hobby Pledge - January 26, 2015
New This Week:
I'm happy that this was another productive week. I only purchased 3 miniatures. I got 3 Metal Gamin for Malifaux, and two Reaper figures for more of my Post Apocalyptic game I'm working on.
I like both of these figures. I'm hopeful to get them painted this week.
I also got the Ramos starter painted, as well as the 3 Metal Gamin I purchased. I'm very happy with the end result but I have a few complaints. First, the Brass Arachnid is supposed to be mounted on a 30mm base. That is kind of ridiculous. I'm happy with the pose I got, I think he looks pretty cool actually, but it's another Malifaux figure that doesn't fit on the base. Howard Langston, Joss, and one of the Metal Gamin were almost as bad. I think it's pretty inexusable for how expensive the figures are.
Next, I got the plastic box of Metal Gamin. The figures are OK, I'm not thrilled with how they came out but they're not bad. I'm annoyed that they didn't come with the version 2 of their card, so I'll need to buy a box of cards to get it for the game.
I do like the figures. The Ramos figures are the least exciting of the Arcanists to me, but they are pretty nice. I suspect I'll need to get another box of the robot spider guys since I guess Ramos can make them in the game?
I probably should get out and play this game some day. Maybe soon. I hope I don't hate it.
Next are two robots from the Judge Dredd game. They're fairly large Soviet robots from the Sov Invasion box. I got the boxes for 50% off a few months ago, and I'm pretty happy with the figures. More robots for the League of Soviet Robots, at least.
Finally, here are the last of the Salvage Crew Kickstarter. I ought to do a write up about it. Long story short: the figures are better than I thought they'd be, I'm happy enough with them. I forgive a lot when a figure comes out to about $1 each, compared to $7 each for a Malifaux figure.
I painted this batch in red to give them a unifying scheme. I imagine them being a rag tag group of near future / Post Apocalyptic mercenaries.
