Building buildings

This morning has been spent trying to finish my buildings for Infinity ready for 'Try Something New'. I just need to add the corners, detail and paint.

Oh, and finish my Relics board - and 5 minis for Infinity.

At last - a photo

Finally, a picture of something. Here's my figures for the Malifaux 'Try Something New' event.

All is quiet.

Bit silent lately as I have been away at Uni but things are progressing - slowly.

Britanan Starter set is complete, Steamborg Executioner is done, Ramos is on the bench.

Infinity minis and buildings on back burner as they are not till week three of our 'Try Something New' promotion.

Photos to come when I get a decent camera/light set up

Under the brush.

What's on the desk at the moment?

The Britanan Starter set from Tor Gaming is currently in the queue ready for 'Try Something New'.

Here's the Troopers as a taster.

Try Something New update

Right, all my Britanan are built and based ready for priming. Uncharted Seas sails primed ready for a quick paint, nothing special. Steamborg Executioner has base layer finished. ALEPH Deva needs basing.

Three and a bit weeks to go.

Infinity ALEPH Deva

Forgive the photo it was taken on my phone.

Photography is not my strong suit, neither is painting ;-)

I am so slow.

Well, I have managed to put a bit of paint on my Infinity ALEPH Deva and highlights on a Dakini - at this rate I should have a fully painted force by Xmas.

Will pop pics on later.

Relics Demo Board - In progress.

In readiness for an upcoming series of demonstrations days at my LGS I have the task of putting together a 2' square demo board for Tor Gaming's Relics.

Now, I have a bit of a soft spot for the Britanan (some of you may know this) so I want to have a board that has hints of the Britanan Empire before its decimation.

So, firstly. a quick sketch of my intended layout. As you can see I am certainly no artist.

The dotted line going from top to bottom is a path based upon the bases of my Troopers

The lower right is a hill, there may be a pond to the mid-left and then ruins in the board centre and on the hill and finally some trees.

Here is where I am at the moment then, the path is cut from cardboard squares. the wall is carved from blue insulation foam. I will add a close up of the wall in the next post. The wall isn't attached as it will end up on the hill.

Time management

At my LGS we are planning a series of evenings to promote new games to players. Part of this is going to involve a few of us having to ready forces for the various games.

Now, I am not the quickest painter/builder/anything in the world so this is going to be an interesting experience.

I will keep updating the blog as to my progress.

Antenociti Future Car

A car from for use on my Infinity board. I love the colour.

SD Forum Painting Swap Blunder

Sometime last year I agreed to take part in the painting swap for the Steve Dean forum - sadly I recently found the mini I was meant to paint for someone else and have been trying to get her finished this week.

Well, she is now done. The varnish is dry, photos are taken - she just needs to be posted back to her owner.

Lets hope he likes it. Personally, I don't think it was worth the wait.

I don't think I will enter another one as who the hell wants to wait 6 months for a mediocre paint job.
