So I have felt that I needed more setting pieces, so I got the Mystic Circle and Sacrificial Altar to paint. I felt that both pieces went well together. The next set pieces I get will be from the Bones 5 kickstarter where I am getting several scenes. One of the things I found is that these pieces seemed to suck up a lot of paint, so I will probably do something slightly different when I paint those pieces.
So this last weekend I finished sealing Crazy Pete. I think this is my best set of eyes that I have ever done. So I am going to take that as a huge win on my part and evidence that I must be getting better at this whole miniature painting thing. Anyway here are some pictures.
Here are another three miniatures finished, two Blackstar Corsairs and one Arachno-Assassin. The Arachno-Assassin was particularly interesting because it was a metal miniature and I haven’t done many of them recently. I am however pretty happy with how the bone definition came out on it. I also used my airbrush to prime it with watered down reaper white primer which seems to have worked pretty well. It will be interesting to see how that holds up.
So this weekend I finished another two miniatures and prepared my last four miniatures for painting. Now that I am looking at the two I sealed, I need to look and see if I accidentally got a gloss sealer because they are shinny-er than I was expected. I also use some green stuff that I had gotten a while back but never had a need for. Some of the Green Stuff was used as a rock on the Ranger’s base, but most of what I used was to fill in the shirt on the Ellen Stone sculpt which just bothered me. I think both of uses came out well, but I think I the shirt could have used more work.
So today I finished some more western and deadlands miniatures, some Iron Golems, setting pieces, more Nova Crop miniatures and Gutrags, and a Dark Young. A lot of these were easy to paint and or ones that I have done before. I have four more miniatures to start from my last order and two to finish.
So I started off 2020 with painting some sci-fi miniatures because I have been intrigued by the Interface Zero 3.0 and Deadlands Lost Colony setting and I thought that these might be useful for some generic corporate goons or military goons that could be used as opponents in any game that I ran. I did a quick base coat for them with the airbrush in a blue gray, then used a light blue from reaper to due a heavy wash on them. Black for the boots, backpack and guns, brilliant red for the visors and then an indigo shadow wash for everything. I like how they came out for such a quick paint. Now it is time to get more miniatures to work on.
So I finished eight of the twenty miniatures that I ordered in December which is pretty good since I placed that order mid month. Over the next several days I will finish the other twelve all of which are various Nova Corp riflemen, guards, soldiers, and females. Most of this order was modern or sci-fi miniatures because I wanted to start building up a base for use with Deadlands Noir or Deadlands Lost Colony both of which have me inspired. That and I finished painting a bunch of Fantasy miniatures from the Bones 4 kickstarter and so I wanted to try something different. This set includes my second Occult Detective, and I will probably get more of each of these in the future. Anyway on to the pictures.
