Old projects anew; robot cats

Sunday, April 24th, 2016

Backlog of models to blog about, unheard of!

For some reason, I felt like painting up a Malifaux  Hunter, basically a robot cat with a harpoon for a tail (the things they dream up these days!). I have a Hoffman crew (posted somewhere on the blog) that I’ve had an itch to expand, so besides the Hunter I’m also underway with a Metal gamin and a scratch built mechanical attendant. We’ll see if they ever see game time, not a lot of that going on at the moment. On the other hand I’ve been painting a lot lately, so who cares, I’m just going to try and keep the motivation up.

Considering it was some 4 years since I painted the other robots there was some issues trying to make the hunter look the same, but I think I got it about right. Also, some sort of record – after undercoat I think I painted it in just under two hours! Yes, that’s my definition of speed painting at least.

That’s it for now; I’m blogging on my phone in the dark in my bed so not really optimal for pooping of words. So, good night and picture below!

   
 

Finally some documentation – Lucius crew & Lincon tournament

For someone that lives and dies for documentation, I sure am horrible at documenting my models.

If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

…As Guild Lawyers graduate from wrangling mundane proceedings, they begin to notice that what they used to only accomplish symbolically – shredding testimonies, redefining meanings, challenging and remaking the facts themselves – is spilling out of the courtroom and into their lives. With gleeful sophistry and only a little surgically applied willpower they can redefine the reality going on around them, and impose their definition over what was there before. For what’s reality but a pattern, what’s a law but a pattern to define and control other patterns, what’s a lawyer but something that defines and controls the law?..

– Malifaux  2E, Crossroads

Best flufftext ever.

First two models finished since the birth of my second son, four months ago. As far as four months can be considered a quick paintjob, they’ve been a quick paintjob. Lawyers are some seriously cool models and it feels good finally finishing them.

The first one is lecturing someone about some possible interpretation of the law and the second one is unreasonably happy because someone spilled his wine, which means lawsuit!

 

Preparing for LinCon and Malifaux tourney in about a month, so hopefully more stuff will pop in a bit more regularly.

 

The governors secretary. And a synthesizer.

Just a post I’ve been meaning to post for.. Ages.

Life’s been busy with me having a newborn kiddo and stuff, so very little time has been left for painting. Plus, I’ve had a few non-miniature relates projects up and running as well, so what little ‘hobby time’ I’ve had has actually been spent on other stuff!

Anyways, some months back I painted up Lucius for malifaux, I just never got around to posting or taking pictures. So in order to at least post something, here’s a quick picture of him I snapped right after painting him. Posing arrogantly in front of a lovely Korg Monotribe.

Speaking of other projects, here’s a box for my Korg Volca synthesizer series I designed (and my father might have had some hand in making a reality…).

More stuff incoming related to synths soon!

Some more wip pics. Bases still missing, sadly… Ah well!
It’s progress, at least.
This time a Guardian and a Watcher.
