Last night I started working on my Heavy Gear

I’d been a little down on my test model, but coming back to it after a month or so I’m feeling pretty good about it!

I’ve got a few models left that I haven’t touched here: infantry and an APC. Those guys can wait until I’ve actually played the game and have figured out how I want to base the infantry.

It Came from the Lightbox: Morats / OP@Home Painting Challenge

Two weeks/three weekends back I decided to do the Infinity OP@Home Painting Challenge to break a couple of slumps (Infinity models, getting anything finished) and here I am: done.

I don’t know that I chose well in choosing the list to paint: constraints here were models I had in-hand, fully assembled but unpainted that I could but into a list. It’s likely I could have chosen a list with fewer models. It’s certain I could have chosen a more viable list. The list I chose met the criteria, though, and seemed worth taking for a spin, at least.

Anyway, I’m done. Hopefully back to wrapping up these dang Skaven models and then on to the next project.

Saga Dice Holder

I got frustrated by all the different sets of Saga dice I have so I made a holder for them.

Each set gets a little tray

They’re magnetized so they stick together. There are some on the side so the max needed at any time can clip together.

And they slot and stick together.


I’ve been in a real slump with this Skaven junk, so I’m biting on the Corvus Belli OP@Home Painting Challenge.

This’ll get me painting my first Infinity models since the pandemic, and getting a W on the board. Then maybe I can return to these turkeys.


These guys are coming along slowly because I tend to think of project length in terms of calendar weeks, not man-hours.

Hopefully I’ll have them done this weekend.
