Re: twisted moon's 2017

finally, as a palette cleanser i've been painting these foundry street violence figures. they'll form part of my rogue trader setting in the caribbean viii sector, as well as be used in other games like future wars and dark future '28. i have some buildings ready for caribbean viii, but not on terrain boards yet; these figures are based to match these future terrain boards.

Re: twisted moon's 2017

not managed to get much done since my last update, but here is my contribution to this year's orctober.

orctober provided the inspiration to finish the conversions to the last figures of my orc spear unit. here they are:

the final five.

the standard bearer and musician are from kallistra; here they are compared to the original versions which form part of the two-handed weapons unit:

fairly cosmetic changes, but i think they're sufficiently different.

repositioning the sword on the standard bearer was hard work and required me to sculpt the scale armour on the front of his 'skirt' as (obviously) there was no detail behind it, as well as repair the damage done to his legs. it might be time to get some proper sculpting tools, as i think my skills may be developing and i might have been able to do a better job with something other than a penknife blade and cocktail stick. I also had to more or less create the left side of the sword blade, and that turned out very well. i used milliput for this, since that's properly oldhammer, but do you think procreate is better even for those with extremely limited skills?
Here is the whole unit, including those i painted before this year:

a scary bunch.

i'm tempted to get another five of these in the more renaissance style, including another standard bearer and musician, and split them into two units of twenty. however, that won't be for 2017, as the decks are now cleared of greenskins for the start of deadcember.

Re: twisted moon's 2017

i managed to get these finished in the evenings last week: copplestone castings fw16 bio-chem squad. i'd done everything aside from the gas mask lenses, guns and bases in september, before setting them aside for orctober. sneaking them in before the end of november has helped further clear the decks for deadcember.

these are imperial army left behind to garrison planetary defence systems installed by a passing rogue trader who claimed the caribbean viii sector for the human imperium. the intention is to add the grenadier future skirmish equivalents/originals to make us up a full squad of ten; i'd also like to get a ramshackle game iron grumbler, or original rogue trader rhino to provide transport.

Re: twisted moon's 2017

so, 119 figures and two terrain tiles completed in 2017; not too bad a tally, although my photography skills don't seem to have improved over the year.
