For the past two weeks I have had little time to hobby, and I think my lack of blogging shows that. Real life things have been getting in the way, including prep for an interview I had yesterday. The only real hobby progress I’ve had is the slow work done on the Soul Warden, the last of my Dragyri Warband models. He probably should have been done a week ago, but I was just too busy. Anyway, here are some random shots I’ve taken recently of various hobby-related things. After posting this, I’ll go write a little report on last night’s Malifaux game with Scott and get back to painting the Soul Warden.
Speaking of the Soul Warden, here he is. The body is all done, so I just need to finish the head and the staff. Hopefully I’ll get him done tonight or tomorrow, and as soon as the Dragon Forge bases arrive I’ll get them completed and get all these Dragyri properly finished.
And speaking of finished models, here is one of the display cases at Meeplemart. Steve agreed to let me keep a few of my crews at the store, which is good for both of us.
On the one hand, Meeplemart gets a demo crew or two for the store to use (yes, I’m fine with people using my miniatures as long as they take care of them), and there’s a visual representation of products he sells.
And on the other hand, I get to show off my painted models and I don’t have to lug them around with me everytime I want to play at Meeplemart (which is where I do all of my miniature gaming right now).
It’s a win-win situation. Next week I’ll be bringing my Heavy Gear Blitz! models to the store as well, and I’m sure my Dark Age warbands will end up there as well. Until I start playing elsewhere again (like at Andrew’s or my place, like we used to), I will likely continue with this.
Speaking of playing at Meeplemart, here are some shots of games played there recently.
Here is how my game against Andrew ended last week. You can find the report at Tale of Gamers. That’s right, I only had 7 models remaining, but thanks to the random scenario and a whole lotta luck at the last minute, I somehow managed to win.
Here is a shot from this week’s game betwen Andrew’s Lizard’s and Steve’s Tomb Kings. Hopefully Andrew will throw something together about the game at ToG, but if not, it was a 1000pt game. Steve is still learning the rules, but has an awesome-looking TK army that is displayed in the store. Hopefully he enjoyed it enough to get some more TK models painted so we can see them tabled again, at higher levels.
And here is a deployment shot from my game against Scott. You can see my Ortegas down at the bottom, and Ramos up at the top with some of his construct friends. I don’t think I’ll write up a true report for this game (due to time I’d like to spend on other posts, and because I don’t think Scott wants another table-wipe report made up :)), but I’ll get some highlights up at ToG ASAP.
Well, here’s my short-term plan in regards to my workbench:
- Dragyri Soul Warden (nearly there)
- Dragon Forge bases (in transit, will just work on the ice ones)
- Abuela Ortega (primed)
After these are done I will be flipping between the Khaliman Republic (Alkemy) for our next ToG starting May 1, and the Outcasts (Dark Age) so I can get this game on the table. Plus, of course, anything else that I get distracted with…like those Dead Doxies for Malifaux that I almost picked up last night, but had the willpower not to. Yet.
Oh yeah, one last picture. This is my 10 1/2 month old son, trying to tell us that we shouldn’t let him watch TV, because he’s impressionable and might mimic what they do…
Thanks for reading.
