Well this is the second attempt at posting this update. I guess I pressed something wrong and published a draft and overwrote the finished post. Oh well, I blame the cold. It's just turned into winter here in Australia. The only good thing about the cold weather is that winter is Hobby Time. I get more games, I paint more and hobby more. Winter has to be good for something other than freezing your ass off right?
Started the base for my Alcatani Fellowship. The cobblestones have been laid and the sand stuck down. Next is the paint and then tufting, flowering and grassing. Hopefully I'll finish it this weekend with the extra holidays.
I'm half way through painting the pike men also. Here are 5 finished models in the shiny non metallic metal and red pants. I decided against the blue pants, they didn't look uniform enough and I really like the red/brass look.
Finally I have a new hero on my bench. This is the free model I got at Clash of Kings AU from MOM Miniatures. MOM Miniatures really aren't known for their excellent casts, and this model is a shining example. Lots of hard to clear mold lines, bubbles and cracks. But after some greenstuffing around and hobby knifing it's not tooooo bad. This model is a bit of an experiment in really pushing the contrast on the non metallic metal with mixed results. Gloves, sword, feet and neck aren't finished yet though, also his Lion friend is still to come.
And that's what's on the bench this week.
