The Hobby Pledge - March 3, 2015
New This Week:
I purchased a lot of models this week. I'm really enjoying Malifaux, but our group has a lot of Arcanist players so I'm switching gears to Ressurectionists. Might take a little while as I'm waiting on the Micro Art Studios bases Kickstarter to deliver (it seems like it'll be late for totally silly reasons) but here we are. Life is pain.
I am a little sad I'm running a 6 figure deficit, a 127 figure deficit if I were to keep to my goal of buying half as many models as I paint. I'll try to get back on track, I have a few big projects sitting in my closet waiting for paint.
This week I only painted 5 models, but they're all pretty big.
Mashaaf, The Great Old One, was a $12 add-on from the last Reaper Bones Kickstarter and he is totally a steal for that price. Very, very fun model to paint and he is huge. Not 100% sure what I'll use him for, but I just wanted to paint him. Pretty happy with how he came out. Also, he's huge. That poor heroic astronaut aint gonna last long against him.
I painted up the Damned Ones of Gluttony for Hell Dorado. Not that I have much interest in playing it, although I have some, but more about they were in a box for too long and too cool. Plus, I was painting Killjoy this week for Malifaux and their scheme was going to be pretty similar. It's not 3x as hard to paint 3 similar miniatures and all. Really happy with how they came out.
The Dawn Serpent. Ugh. Such a bad mini. I tried to paint it well, but just gave up and just wanted to get it done. Hate it. Pretty good in the game, though, sadly.
Killjoy was really fun to paint. I think he looks way better in person, too. Very fun to paint and I'm excited to try him out.
