6MMRPC Week Twenty-Four: Please Stand By

I went and bought Fallout 4 last Friday and the digital world has affected my analog hobbies since.  The game has been super-awesome so far.  That said, I did manage to get a litle bit of work in before the Bomb dropped, as it were.

I got an initial wash laid down on the Great War landships and guns, and also put a panel wash on the Ki-45.  I also started to base the D&D minis I worked on a few weeks ago, just need to do a few highlights, some pigments and tufts to finish them.  

Slow progress is still progress, I guess!
Another hour and these should be done.
I also received a large shipment of parts for my Mustang, might see it back from the body shop by the end of the year.  I was able to take advantage of a great sale at my old haunt, Sacramento Mustang.

6MMRPC Week Twenty-Three: Random D&D Minis WiP

In another case of short-attention-span hobbying I spent the week working on a Star Wars RPG I just started running and checked out the local Renaissance Faire on the weekend.  I was able to squeeze in a few hours of painting on Sunday and put the first licks of paint on some Reaper Bones minis I bought last year.  I like all three of these sculpts quite a bit.  I also started on a donkey and wagon I picked up at about the same time from Otherworld Miniatures. (fantastic sculpts, though a bit on the pricy side)

A Halfling Assassin, a Necromancer, and an Elven Pirate walk into a bar...

Three weeks left to the Challenge, lots of work to try and finish!

6MMRPC Week Twenty-Two: Japanese Tanks

My scatter-shot ways continue this week, as I was gently reminded that I forgot to paint up some tanks for my gaming compadre Hal.  In return for a battery of Italian 4.7cm guns I agreed to paint four Japanese tanks for him.  He gave me these ages ago but with the madness of life, they slipped my mind.  These are a pair of Type 97 Chi-Ha tanks and a pair of Type 95 Ha-Go tanks, both from unknown manufacturers.  So far, I've only been able to put down an initial layer of dark yellow paint, but I hope to get these done as soon as possible.  These were beasts to clean up, mold lines all over flat surfaces and between rivets.

Maybe Command Decision?  They're all-metal and only the turrets were separate.

6MMRPC Week Twenty-One: Invasion!

With the Halloween holiday coming up, it was time to make some costumes for my boys.  My wife has thoroughly taken over my hobby space, preventing me from doing much of anything all week.  With yards of fabric and patterns strewn about, my painting has come to a stand-still.  I was able to clean up some FoW minis, but that's it.  It's ok though, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader costumes should lead to some epic lightsaber duels all over the house!
