It came from the Lightbox: More Nomads

I painted up a few more minis while waiting for some terrain to show up in the mail.

Between that terrain being delivered and a last couple of weeks to see if I can get anything together for Historicon, this’ll probably be the last painting post I make for a bit. (Which is a shame, ’cause I’d just started getting some momentum back up here.)

Anyway:

Bandits are rad.  They just are.  I don’t know why I think 90’s urban camo is the dumbest thing but also the coolest thing, but I do, so I was happy to have an excuse to use it on the Bandit figures.

I’m still struggling with non-Caucasian skin.  This came out… okay, but not the way I imagined it would.  Carlota’s a Tomcat and Tomcats are great; I only got her because I really needed a second Zondcat.

Two Midnight Sun Analysts: the one on the left is the standard one, and the one on the right is the Infinity RPG variant.  In space, you can have purple muttonchops. =

Workbench

The WordPress app was being a pain yesterday, so here’s a snapshot of my workbench from last night.

Just knocking out a couple of Nomad models while I wait for a box of buildings to show up (tomorrow!): a Bandit, Carlotta Kowalsky, and two Midnight Sun Analysts.

Unsure how I feel about how Carlotta’s skintone is coming out.  I keep trying to 1) do more non-Caucasian fleshtones and 2) do better with them.

 

It came from the light box: Infinity Nomads

I’m super far behind on posting photos of my painted minis (past the quick workbench photos I’ve been posting).  Time to fix that.  Since I’ve been painting Infinity Nomads, I’ll be posting Infinity Nomads.

(This is not all of my Nomads: just the Nomads I’ve painted since the last time I posted something from the lightbox.)

Some painted Bones

Bones 3 showed up in the mail a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve idly knocked out a few items from it.  There’s something liberating and relaxing about simply picking up a model to paint and blowing through it.

I started with the terrain pieces:

The Mystic Circle’s a great piece.  The Mythos expansion came with a few terrain pieces, including an altar that fits the stones perfectly.

There are a few other pieces, too, from Mythos & Stoneskull:

The Graveyard expansion included a mausoleum that’s pretty rad:

I’m very happy with how the roof of the mausoleum came out:

Finally, I painted up a couple of models I thought were especially rad.

They’re serviceable paintjobs, but that’s really what Bones minis want.

All in all, the perfect painting palette cleanser.

Paintin’ more bases


Had planned to work on some pieces for Historicon, but got sidetracked working on bases.  I blame the overlapping color scheme (if I’m going to work on this, I might as well do these at the same time) and that I’m kinda pooped from doing yard work.

Need to paint more bases

After basing the latest batch of Nomads, I realized I’m down to 7 25mm painted bases:  it enough to base the Nomads I have yet to paint, nevermind rebase.

Clearly the first batch didn’t have enough 25s in it, due to getting all the 40s and 55s I hope I’ll need for a while.

Next up, I guess:

Working on some Nomads.


Krazykoalae, Tomcats, Zondcats.
