To be fair, I have dug through a small bit of personal time to do some painting. Of course I then ran into problem #2, which is my photo-editing software is on my Mac at home. Bleh..... No pictures of my newly painted models this week. I will say, however, that I have returned to accomplishing some of the 40K models, knocking out both Jain-Zar and Baharroth for my Phoenix lord collection. This will provide a completed set of Phoenix Lords, which I am very happy with. I do not particularly like the Jain-Zar model, I think it is a very ugly sculpt. Its done though, so I can move on to the remaining DTP models on the list.
I have also been working on a fair number of Malifaux models. As you can see, I have a new number assembled and primed, waiting on my painting tray for completion. I knocked out a Student of Conflict for my Lady Justice crew, along with an Icy Razorspine Rattler for my Rasputina crew. I am very happy with how these came out, although the Student has a bit of Super-Glue-Elphantitis in his hands. I may put together a second one down the road and pin the hands to get better detail.
On a sad note, Russ Wakelin did not make it out for gaming last week, so I did not get a chance to play a game with him. It appears that the NH love for Malifaux is fairly constricted to just a few players (Russ, Craig, and 1 other as I understand). Myriad Games is an incredible store, and was a joy to hang out in. These NH'ites are big board game players, and I saw very little actual miniature gaming going on!
That's it for this update. I will be returning next week (after August 9th) with a flurry of pictures for whatever I accomplish around work. I also plan for 1 more Forgeworld order in my near future (this week?) and then I will be pulling out the Air Brush for some large model painting! If things go forward as planned, I will be knocking out 2 Night Spinners, 1 Eldar Flyer, and the Titan over the next month or so.
