Revan, Tiefling Paladin

This miniature represents one of the PC's in my D&D 4E game: Revan, a tielfing bard who later became a paladin (or may be multiclassed with a paladin--I can't keep this guy straight).  I'm not sure who does the miniature, since it was just given to me by the player to paint.  Sadly, I have been sitting around not painting this guy for a while, so I thought I'd take a stab at him.

Two figures from the zombie blog

I just posted these two over at Hard Boiled Zombies, since they will likely appear in my All Thing Zombie solo campaign, but I'm putting them here two, since this blog has more followers and because they count towards the painting goal I track here.

I'm at 135 out of 150 miniatures for the year, and I'm beginning to wonder how I'm going to make that total with only six weeks to go and two holidays in the mix.  If I don't make it, it will be largely on account of my general malaise regarding painting that settled in in the late Summer/early Autumn.  I was getting much more into roleplaying games and building terrain for my zombie game, and had let painting go by the wayside.

Complicating matters is that I started having less time in the evening to get things painted.  I'm trying to adjust my schedule to allow for a bit more time, but we'll see.

I'm seriously considering foregoing the pledge next year.  I'll hoping be getting my hands on the Bones line from their Kickstarter (I signed up at Vampire level, giving me enough minis to keep my busy for years).  I may slowly paint my way through them instead of my typical "spray paint a bunch of stuff for an army" option.

A Brazen Claws Predator

It has been a while since I posted to this blog.  It isn't that I haven't been having a hobby life. I painted some miniatures, had two solo wargaming sessions, created a new monster for a Halloween-themed blog-hop, and ran several RPG sessions of my own.  So I'm not suffering a lack of creativity, it just isn't within this blog's range.  That sometimes makes me think I should pull a "Major Dizaster" (founder of the many and sundry "Ares" blogs, such as Starbase Ares) and re-organize the blogs.

Or, I can do what I am doing, and getting back on the painting wagon.  I finished the Predator tank for my Brazen Claws Space Marine army.  Looks good, fully magnetized sponsons (not the turret gun, but the autocannon is always a solid option), and ten points to the total.  It has been years since I have failed to make a painting goal, and I'm not about to start now.
