On the bench

Lately it seems I have started a lot of projects but really dont have anything finished to show as of yet. So, I thought an "on the bench" post was in order!

It seems with the release of the all new card decks for Dark Age, my interest in the game has been rekindled. I have gotten a few games in and started work on the figs again. I really, really love painting these figures but couldn't get much oomph to do so when the game was not drawing my attention.

Here is what I have been working on.

Now, with all of this Dark Age craziness abound, Wild West Exodus was not to be forgotten.
Just some basecoats and washes on this guy for now. I plan to ramp up on him over the coming days.

Last but definitely not least, is my Yaogat strike force leader for my Morat aggression sectorial army.

I always have one Infinity fig in the works. Only one though, because if I were to try and assembly line paint these tiny, detailed little buggers, my eyes might just melt right out of my skull.

Thanks for taking a look! Let me know what you think or what changes you might add to these!

Infinity: Morat, Kurgat Engineer

I have been working on this guy for far too long now. I got to the point where I was afraid to screw him up, so I put him down and didnt touch him again for another 4 to 5 months!

Well, as you can see, I finally got the gumption to just bust out the last bits on him.

The red on this guy was a bit of an experiment, where I based with more of a purple color and shaded with almost black and then worked up with the reds. I really liked how it turned out, so I think I'll stick with the recipe for a while.

Thanks for taking a look!

Super Dungeon Explore: Boneheads

In an effort to power through my entire Von Drak box worth of figs, I finished these guys up assembly line style. I am really surprised that I haven't burnt out painting these little buggers yet, I hope I can keep it up to the finish.
They ended up quite a bit darker than I had intended, but I dont think it's a bad thing all in all.
I think the Rattlebones will be next on the docket.
Thanks for checking them out!

Memory lane: Bane Thralls

Well, I do believe this is one of the first units I ever completed. I was oh so happy with how they turned out, thought I had nailed that freehand and I was just so mega awesome!! ;)

Well fast forward 6 to 7 years and the paint on these guys is looking pretty dated now. I'll still throw them down in a game when I get the chance though...I mean, because, they are painted after all.
I would like a crack at the new sculpts of these guys, as I think they look even cooler than the old ones. A feat which I thought impossible at the time I was painting these.

Thanks for taking a look!

Wild West Exodus: Cole Younger and first Hired hand complete.

Found a bit of time to finish up both of these buggers. On one hand, I'm not too happy with how Cole turned out but the Hired hand came out better than I expected him to. The green jacket was just a random selection but I like how it ended up looking.

The bases on these guys are just made from cut slats of balsa wood that I weathered with a wire brush. Some Army Painter grass tufts finished them off. 

Have another few Hired Hands in the works now, and pretty soon I need to start on some terrain for this game as the rules seem to rely on it pretty heavily.

Recent WIP's: Wild West Exodus.

Thought I'd show you Some of the stuff I have been working on over the last little while.

Here are some WIP's from my recently received Wild West Exodus Kickstarter. I was hesitant to jump on at first, but decided I had better since I had a few buddies doing the same.I have never been a huge fan of Wild West stuff in general, and since the digital pics of the figs were not looking all that stellar, it took some convincing.
When I recived my package I was very pleasntly surprised! The figs were better than expected, and now that I have a game under my belt, I can say the mechanics arent too shabby either. Hooray!

I pledged for both the Outlaws and the Enlightened. After a look over of the rules and figs, I have decided to sell off the Enlightened and stick with just the single faction. I may never get them all painted otherwise!

Now, pics!

Long range Hired Hand
Cole Younger and his Red hat!
And a little further along.

So.....uh...back again! With 100% more Super Dungeon Explore

So, I guess this is going to be a normal thing for me. Just call me the king of flip flopping! I yet again have the drive to work on my own blog!

This time I'll just have to realize that I cant always keep Scotty's Workshop updated, and even after a long hiatus from the hobbying world, I can still come back and pick things back up. 
I guess I just like this place too much to go away for long.

I have had an awful lot of Hobby projects going for the past while and now seems like as good a time as ever to share them with you!
After this rambling gibberish, I had better leave with something of value to gander at.

So, here is my Progress on my Super Dungeon Explore figs so far. I have mostly been working on the Von Drak manor stuff, as it really hearkens back to playing Castlavania 2, Simon's Quest! Loved that game, and wasted endless hours playing it over and over again, so this SDE set was a very welcome addition indeed!

Skull Bats
Dust mage
Dread Knights (my faves)
Group shot, because you know I love em!

I have a few more which are very near completion now. Look forward to those soon!
