Holy sardine! Batman demo crews done

Friday, December 27th, 2013

Commissioner Gordon: It could be any one of them… But which one? Which ones?
Batman: Pretty *fishy* what happened to me on that ladder…
Commissioner Gordon: You mean where there’s a fish there could be a Penguin?
Robin: But wait! It happened at sea… Sea. C for Catwoman!
Batman: Yet, an exploding shark *was* pulling my leg…
Commissioner Gordon: The Joker!
Chief O’Hara: All adds up to a sinister riddle… Riddle-R. Riddler!
Commissioner Gordon: A thought strikes me… So dreadful I scarcely dare give it utterance…
Batman: The four of them… Their forces combined…
Robin: Holy nightmare!

Yes. Because that’s proper deduction skills.

Painting yellow – Holy heart failure, Batman!
This is sort or awkward, but this is the second post in a row about a finished project! One might almost suspect that I’m getting stuff done and not getting distracted by the latest shinies. Almost.

Robin is all done, and with that, two 200 Reputation points demo crews to try out the Batman miniature game! Bright yellows, greens and reds are sort of a hassle, but in the end I think he turned out alright. I’ve only painted him by the tv, so environment hasn’t been optimal, but hey. Continued my experiment with glazes and such with the yellow. Hard stuff, but still the best yellow I’ve painted so far.

Anyways, Batman and Robin makes for a 200 Reputation demo crew, so now I can finally try the game out!.. I hope it doesn’t suck.

Insert maniacal laughter and bird-related puns followed by a handful of onomatopoeic KAPOW!’s (try saying that fast three times).

Lynch

A bit over a year ago a began my Dark Debts crew project, and now I’ve finally come to the point where it feels about as done as it’ll ever get…

You’re Scheming On A Thing That’s A Mirage

Wednesday, December 25th, 2013

Because Beastie boys need to be referenced more.

Let’s start with an apology – I’m sorry that there wasn’t any Robin update. He’s still on the painting table, and my ability (inability) to paint yellow makes it take some more time.

Anyways, a while ago I whipped up some malifaux scheme markers for my Lynch crew, but I haven’t gotten around to blogging it. So here it is, scheme markers. 6 of them. Because… How many do you need? I’ve never used more than 6, but what if? Decisions decisions. 6 feels like a solid number anyways. There’s the 4 aces and 2 Jokers (A black J and a red J, respectively).

The bases are from Fenris games, and the cards were made from flattened greenstuff cut into shape.

The markers are just playing cards on the same kind of wooden floor as the rest of the crew. It feels like if there’s anything that Jakob Lynch would use as a catalyst for his influence, it’d be playing cards.

The markers in themselves are pretty minimalistic, but there’s a few reasons behind that. First and foremost, it was the closest to a non-intrusive, yet still thematic, Scheme marker I could come up with. I’ve seen a lot of really great looking Scheme markers, but I feel like they can be a bit too intrusive on the board while actually playing (In game the Scheme markers are 0″ tall and you can stand on them). So, as flat as possible was the goal.
Second, because I’m lazy.

I think that sort of sums up my Lynch crew, might do a group shot to celebrate if I dig out the camera.

Penguin demo crew complete

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

After a lot of city-camo-angst, I’m done with the Penguin thugs for Batman Miniature Game. Seriously, painting camo is horrible.

I am hoping to try this game out on thursday. Been holding off until everything’s painted, because I know stuff has a tendency to not get painted if I start playing with them unpainted.

Only model left now is Robin, which I hope will get done this coming week!

That’s it for now, time to head to bed and wait for sick son to keep me awake all night.

Blue Penguin, Royal Penguin & Penguin Emperor. Because Penguins thugs are named after penguins. Makes sense..
