Oh man, into February already and not much to show for 2017 so far! There has been a fair bit on the go at the painting and modelling cupboard including some actual sculpting on the Ogres and my Halberdiers are now painted so only have the basing (which I bloody hate doing) to finish.
I did however make a little trip to a model shop last week. I attended a thrilling ‘Examination board standardisation meeting’ (and yes, that’s as exciting as it sounds) after which I popped into Tiranti’s sculpting supplies and treated myself to some of their lovely dental sculpting tools. The fun didn’t end there though, oh no. I then decided to stroll from Waterloo to Vauxhall, and along my route was the fortuitously positioned Dark Sphere. Needless to say, I succumbed to temptation and soon found myself handing over cold hard cash for the spanking new boxed game Gangs of Commorragh and, after being waylaid for pints and a cocktail, on my way home. No hobby-ing was embarked upon that night.
So, a day later the wrapping was torn asunder and the bureaucracy (rules, counters, sundry) flung aside to reveal the toys! There’s been plenty of reviews and the like by far more thorough and august bodies than myself so I shall simply say that it all looks like pretty good value and this is the first thing I’ve flung together:
He’s only tacked together at the moment, but I’m pretty happy with him. Looks like a mad, drunk prospector type – although he currently appears to have misplaced his britches and made off with someone’s cast off late night leatherwear! I’ll be sculpting a bit of material onto those legs to make them a bit more in keeping with the rest of the figure.
There we are then, I’ll be hoping to get some paint on these 28mm folks soon as well as onto some more 10mm pikemen and halflings. There just aren’t enough hours in the day.
