WIP Ork Boyz

I really have had a lull in my painting and this year was of the least productive in a long time. In the fact, the last time it was this bad was, well, last year.  Why the drop off in painting miniatures?  Well, there's lots of reasons, but two of them are that I picked up some new hobbies, and my other blogged about one (roleplaying games, found here) had a huge upswing.  I'm running or playing in an RPG about two or three weekends a month, and that's a lot of prep time.  So, not so much time for painting or wargaming.

But I'm no longer running the RPG sessions, and other hobbies have waned in the season.  Plus, I miss the low-key, introspective, but artistically creative nature of painting miniatures.  This, I am trying to get back into the swing of things.  To start myself off, I'm going through some miniatures from the Lead Pile (tm) and dragging some stuff out to work on.  Easy stuff, without a lot of fussiness.  I am starting with eight Ork Boyz from Games Workshop.  We'll see how it goes.

The Curse of the Werewolf

It's been forever since I have painted anything, but a friend gave me this miniature to paint for a friend.  He's not too complicated, just the thing to get back on the horse, or wolf, so to speak.

One curiousity, though.  I'm a little confused by the absence of werewolf...junk on the miniature.  Perhaps an unfortunate side affect of his affliction?

6MMRPC Week 20: Halloween Special!

Halloween is right around the corner and my son wanted a chainsaw hand so he could be Ash from Army of Darkness/Evil Dead.  I managed to construct one using foamcore and paint that I had lying around the workroom (thus not purchasing anything)!

The panels cut out and, when necessary, painted.

Subassemblies put together.

Painting and weathering.

All ready to go!  Groovy!
Not miniatures per se, but still a fun project to bang out this weekend.

6MMRPC Week 19

I haven't had any updates for two weeks, for pretty good reason.  The first is that I left town for a week on vacation, and the second is that I returned to an unholy mess at work, a mess that continues to keep me very busy.

Hopefully things will quiet down soon and I can get back to painting.

6MMRPC Week 17

So I guess Zomtober or whatever is a think, and I've got plenty of zombies (and a blog dedicated to zombie miniatures games) so I'll start those up a little early so I can have plenty finished in October.  These are from an expansion pack for Zombicide, making them both nice and cheap.

Not a lot of headway, but it has been a very, very busy week.  I'll be away on vacation next week, so I will have to see what happens in terms of updates.

6MMRPC Week 16

Well, the bad news is, I only got one figure completed.

The good news is, it was a figure that is for a friend of mine to use in the RPG I run.

Damien, Hellborn Wizard from the Reaper Bones line.

6MMRPC Week 15

Back to the Reaper Bones miniatures pile, painting up three goblins to roughly match the Pathfinder goblins I did a while back.  Nothing fancy, just some serviceable mooks for any fantasy game.
