Week 2

Another week of blasting through some easy models! Hehe.

I could get used to painting as many models in a week as I normally struggle to do in a month...

It does feel great to get my production up, but at the same time, I wonder if I will regret doing such a quick job on these guys later on. They DO have to go into my display case with the rest of the troops after all! And they are not exactly works of art :(

Oh well, they'll do the important job of making sure I hit my goal for the year!

As of right now, I have completed my November goal and painted enough to make up for the shortfalls in September and October. So all I need to do is paint 10 more models and I will hit my goal of 10 models each month all year :)

That damn Carnosaur will take a while though so it's still up in the air as to whether this will happen.

In the mean time, here are some closeups of what I got done this week. I chose models from my Bones pile, again with the intention of filling out the entries on the random encounter table in Frostgrave. Of course, that doesn't mean I won't use them in Song of Blades & Heroes too!

I think I've solved my basing dilemma for my Fantasy models in a pretty basic way - any Games Workshop models I originally bought to use for WHFB / Mordheim will get based on square bases. Any other Reaper, Otherworld, or other random Fantasy models I buy (or pick out from the lead pile) will get based on round bases. This way I can still use my Mordheim models in WHFB if I want, but I'll also be slowly building up a collection of Fantasy models on round bases to use in other games.

It's one of my pet peeves that I like to have consistent basing in a game, whether the rules require it or not. Which is why I painted up some Bones skeletons and zombies even though I already have dozens and dozens of WHFB skeletons and zombies painted...
