Memory lane: Boomhowler & Trollkin Mercs

Well, posting up my Ironbreakers the other day gave me an Idea for some blog content. I have oodles of painted miniatures that have never been shown to anyone other than just a few close friends and gaming buddies. So, I thought I'd post once or twice a month showcasing my older figs (rough as they may be)

First in line could only be Boomhowler and his Trollkin Mercs. Besides Eiryss, these were the first Mercs I picked up for Warmachine, and some of my very first attempts at freehand with those Tartans.
These guys were finished almost exactly 5 years ago to date.( I paint the month and year on the bottom of figs I finish)

To War!

Well, these guys are not necessarily a new paint job but the reason I am putting them up here is that I finally got one unit of my massive Dwarven horde completely equipped with painted shields. You may be thinking Whoopty doo, but this is actually quite a milestone for me.
For some strange reason I have no problem painting up the rank and file soldiers, 5 or even 10 at a time. I always forgo the shields though. I know they make the unit look much better and helps with WYSIWYG but I still tend to ignore them completely.

So, now my Ironbreakers may charge forth into battle, fully equipped and armored.

First flame....of war that is

Got my first U.S tank all finished up for Flames of War. I really had no idea what I was doing, and I do think it shows somewhat. I was surprised at how different these little things were to paint as opposed to a 28mm fig.
I am pleased with how it turned out though, and I do think it will look ok as a whole force rather than a magnified single piece.
As of this point in time, I think I'll be running a 29th infantry division with some medium tank backup.
Now to learn this game!

Old school Middy

Finished this guy up the other night. I don't know what it is about these Mid-Nor figs, but i get going on one, and I exclude everything else I'm working on till its done. I guess they are just that fun to paint. I tried a new gloss medium for the blood on this guy and I don't think I like it much. Really gave it a lot of goopyness. Perhaps it will work better if I do a bunch of gore.
After working on this guy I have a new appreciation for Rackhams older sculpts. I thought they were pretty sub-par at first but I am looking forward to another one now.

Daturazi Finished

So, to start things off on a better foot in October, here are some (finally) finished pics of my first Infinity fig.
I wasnt 100% sure about all the bright colors coexisting on this fig all at one time but I am rather pleased with him after all is said and done.
There ought to be lots more Morat to come as they are pretty fun to paint, and now that I have a color scheme nailed down it should be a ton easier to get them rolling out.

Thanks for checking him out.

Long time, no post

Well, the month of September was a brutal one as far as hobby time goes. I sat down to paint all of maybe an hour the entire month, and I didnt game one stinkin time! Now October has arrived with a little inclement weather, and this means work slows down and hobby time picks back up, Woohoo!
Hopefully this means the Blog posting picks up as well, and I can get things back and rolling.

So, keep your eyes peeled for new content and hopefully a lot more paint.
