The Hobby Pledge - January 5, 2015
One of my New Year's Resolutions was to not just blog more, I do a lot of painting and playing I never share here, but to keep better statistics.
For years people on The Miniatures Page, a somewhat odious place full of reactionary neckbeards, have done The Pledge. The gist of this is to keep track of miniature purchased, sold, and painted. I'll try to do that here every week.
Running Totals for 2015:
Painted this week are 12 figures from the old Mega Minis / Alpha Forge "Salvage Crew". A Kickstarter was run to bring these back a little while ago (actually one of the best Kickstarters I've seen, delivered on time and had zero fuss or drama).
The figures aren't great, but they're fine. They're flexible enough to use for not-Necromunda, Dredd, or other miscellaneous near future or post apoc type games.
I painted up 10 of the humans and 2 of the robots. I like the figures well enough, the big guy with dynamite is especially nice.
I didn't give these a great paint job. They're a little darker than I normally paint, but I wasn't especially inspired by them. I think they'll do well for what I want, and will look well enough.
I hope to paint up the rest of these figures, this is about half of them, in the next week or two.
