New Year’s Resolution, done

I did it – cleaned my game room that is; every corner, crevice, nook and cranny. On the table, under the table, beside the painting table… I went through every box, bag, envelope then sorted and labelled all of it. Took two days. New wire shelves from IKEA to hold it all tidily. So that’s one resolution to check off the list.

Pictures or it didn’t happen, you say? Here ya go.

Here’s some fast and dirty pictures of some fast and dirty brushwork to start off the new year as well. Sorry for the poor images. I’ll re-take them later.

Here’s wishing all of you a happy new year and hoping you get plenty of good gaming in. Best.

Final surge for LAF Painting Club

Motivated by the Lead Adventure Forum’s Future Wars Painting Club, here are my last two pieces for the moment. Enter an old Rezolution CSO Sergeant and a Nid Carnifex. Both were purchased on eBay.

Fast and dirty Carnifex. Tyranids are one of the few GW ranges I like. Versatile figs, they make great generic alien baddies.

I appreciate the opportunity and the challenge afforded by the painting club. I think I got more done in the last three weeks than the previous three months. Thanks

Weekend painting

The painting club over at Lead Adventure has me digging through my box o’ long-suffering primed figs. Got some painting time in Sat/Sun eves. Here are the results.

Operation Icestorm Nomads Spektr

A second Infinity fig I’m actually satisfied with. The Nomads Spektr, their covert infiltration unit, if I understand the fluff correctly. I won’t be getting Operation Icestorm – have too many projects already – but I do like the figs. Perhaps eBay in the new year.

Old Warzone figs

Prodos Games resurrected Warzone figs and rules had me digging out the remnants of my WZ collection. I have a soft spot for the game; it and VOR were the two that brought be back into the hobby after a typical “adult” hiatus. There are few more in boxes and cases, but these surfaced first.

Regarding the Demo Set; I’m in a holding pattern. Another piece of terrain and the Aliens force are both 2/3rds finished. I had an unexpected pre-holiday rush on projects, commissions and repairs in the glass studio that put them on the back burner. The presentation is Dec. 19 however, so they are on the TO DO list.

Happy Holidays, everyone.
