On the workbench   Leave a comment

Posting has been a real challenge lately, obviously not just for me either.  I had a good pace going and then screwed it up.  I am going to try fixing that and this is where I am starting.  What is on my work bench right now?  Well, I have been very slowly putting together my Freebooter’s Fate starter.  All I have left to attach is the leaders head and weapons.  These models are amazing.  I think they are my favourite female sculpts ever.  The two lowly deckhands are great.  None of the models are chesty, they don’t have 6 packs, or outrageously form-fitting pants.  They don’t completely abandon the fantasy female trope though as they are still wearing very little clothing!  What they are is lithe and a bit elfin looking.  I’m very happy with my choice of factions for this game.  You’d think I’d put a priority on getting them completed!  Not so.  Here is a pic:

The current state of my starter.

The newest addition to the workbench is a pile of Inquisitor stuff.  I picked up Lady Jena, Malicant, Barbaretta and her cybo-dog, and the rule book.  The models are really nice.  They were purchased already black primed and in really good condition so there isn’t really anything for me to do except start putting some paint on them.

My batch of Inquisitor models. With a Freebooter Amazon to show scale.

 

Apparently it doesn’t pay to be silent as the Silent One I bought and referenced in a title, but apparently didn’t write anything about, in the last workbench update is still sitting in parts.  I should get her put together.  It would be wise of me to paint her at the same time as Rasputina since they will no doubt use a similar set of colours.  I do have another Silent One and Snow Storm on the way, maybe I should wait for them?  Does this sound like procrastination?

We are going to be starting another Tale of Gamers soon.  We will be working on Alkemy and we have one participant for each faction.  I am slow and therefore get a huge head start!  =)  My Avalonians are assembled and mostly painted up to wave 2.  The regulars and crossbowmen have just been base coated but otherwise the models are well on their way.  All of them require some touch ups though.  Everything past wave 2 is still in parts.  The challenge here will be to match the paint style I used a long time ago.  These were done back when I had a little more patience and when I was using Privateer Press paints (which I have since handed off to Justin).  Anyhow, I mention them here because I need to pull them out and sort through them, find out exactly what needs to be done beyond what I mentioned above.

The Daemons of Chaos mentioned in the last workbench have been shelved indefinitely.  I have way too much stuff on the go and waiting in the wings to continue with them.  Plus, working on them takes away from work on my Lizardman army which should be my priority.  I had a small burst of energy and got a variety of models painted to varying degrees of completeness but have now stalled.  To regain a bit of momentum I need to set aside some of the distractions and try to focus.  The Daemons are one of those distractions.  I suspect they will appear out of the warp at some future point though.  😉

Mercs.  What to do about Mercs.  I bought two starters and was pretty excited to get them going but something happened and they are now sitting in their boxes on my shelf.  I highly doubt they will get any attention any time soon.  Honestly I would rather try to get in a few more games using Ilan’s models and see if I really want to proceed.

Finally, terrain.  While not officially on my workbench, I need to start thinking about a table.  The basement has been converted into my own personal stomping grounds and so it would be good to incorporate a bit of my hobby into that.  I had collected a pile of terrain of various types, war-torn worlds mostly, but never had an acceptable surface to put it all down on.  In the last lull in y tabletop gaming I decided to get rid of it all to make some space for other things.  With the recent (renewed) interest in minis gaming comes a renewed interest in getting terrain so I can host games at home.  Oh, did I mention that I really don’t like static grass.  That makes things a bit more complicated.  Step 1 is planning and budgeting.
