A running commentary of what I get up to, get distracted by and generally end up not doing with my hobbies of wargaming, rpgs and anything else I find interesting. Key focus at the moment is Mordheim, DnD, Otherworld miniatures and rpgs. Any historical stuff (mainly colonial) I now post on a seperate blog.
This is posted a lot later than originally intended. So far I have stuck reasonably to the plan raised in December with the following painted to end of March.
Africa – Mainly Masai 10 US WW2
Yanks – The remainder have base coats just need finishing. 29DnD
creatures include a couple of terrain pieces
No zombies but that is not a surprise, started to get distracted on a few side projects such as moderns (africa), and 1980's cold war gone hot, but to date I have resisted.
To end of June I am aiming for more of the same with Masai and WW2 yanks mixed in with some fantasy stuff (Demon, slimes and jellies and Ants are ready to go with the bases completed).
I also invested in another set of Otherworld miniatures (including the ants) and took delivery of the balance of the kickstarter so a fair bit to paint so that's my annual figure purchases made, well at least to Selwg unless I fail my save vs shiney.
Now if only I can avoid that Toyota Technical from Empress Miniatures that is calling me.......
Both sites are excellent insperation for old school gaming and painting, and on with the repsot:-
For those who don’t know about Minis by Finch, it’s an excellent site full of beautifully painted minis by a chap called Finch. We’ve both admired each others work for years and I thought it would be cool to do something together, so I came up with the Helping Hand Challenge.
Our aim is to paint one miniature from Otherworld’s DAB 4 boxset a month starting in June 2014 and finishing in May 2015.
However, we’d like to spread the love and open this challenge out to other bloggers too, so here are the rules:
You must own the DAB4 Boxset
You must own a blog
You must paint one miniature a month in the order shown below
You must post your results on the last day of each month
You must include a link to each other participating blog
This is the order:
July Mule Handler
November Pack Bearer
January Lantern Bearer
February Dwarf Merc
March Crossbow Merc
April Spearman Merc
(it’s also the order the minis appear on the card sleeve on the set)
If you want to join in please post a link to your blog in the comments with the words “I’m in” (if you miss two consecutive months I will remove you from the participants list). I will update this on June 1st with a full list of participating blogs so everyone knows who is playing along.
And most of all, have fun and enjoy painting some beautiful models.
