Time To Mix It Up!

I've been following Sofie's Paint Blog for a couple of months now. One of the cool aspects of Sofie's blog is her Paint Table Saturday. Folks share what they are painting on their blog and Sofie compiles a list of links to the blogs. Lot's of variety, lot's of different styles and painting goals, and possibly the coolest logo in blogdom!

I've decided to mix things up a bit and join in the Paint Table Saturday fun. I will post WIPs on Saturdays. Sprints will move from every other Saturday to every other Sunday and will only focus on finished work.

Change is good, right? Let's see how it goes!

Field Trip!: MosquitoCon 23

Back in April I spent the day at MosquitoCon which is the annual show held by the New Jersey Chapter of the IPMS in Wayne,NJ.

Incredible light boat - the detail was amazing

Sprint #6 - Black Hat Steam Tanks

Better late then never I suppose!

Here are a couple of  British Light Steam Hovertanks w/Gatling by Black Hat Miniatures. If I recall correctly, I purchased them from Scale Creep here in the U.S.

The tanks consist of four to five resin cast pieces. I give a range as one kit was slightly different from the other. Both kits have the hull, a smoke stack, the Gatling gun, and the turret. The turret pivots on a large round plug: on one kit the plug was part of the turret, on another it was a separate piece that has to be glued to the underside of the turret. I can think of no reason for the difference, but there it is.

Sprint #5 - Evil Hooded Minions by Pulp Figures

Hi All!

Another odd two weeks - mostly plagued by allergies. Sooo groggy it was hard to paint. I did manage to finish the five Evil Hooded Minions by Pulp Figures I was working on last Sprint.

3 of 5
Very odd to be working on 28mm figures after such a long absence.
