Questing in Arcadia pt5

Welcome back readers!

This week we look back into a few more figures for Arcadia Quest that I completed last year. The first two are commission pieces for a fellow player, and the last one, Maya, is part of my collection for the game. Lets take a look:




With most of the Arcadia Quest figures I am still trying to perfect the Non-Metallic Metal style without it looking too cartoony. It still works, but needs to get better. These models are as fun to paint as they are to play the game with and I hope to be able to get to more this year.

Until next time!

Merlock the Magnificent

Welcome back!

This week I am going to show off another commission for a local client. This one is Merlock the Magnificent from Reaper Miniatures. All colors chosen by client, and the clear base provided. Lets take a look:

Merlock the Magnificent

This one was done to a higher standard than normal, so that was a bonus for me. Really enjoyed painting this one, and got to use my new background!

Until next time!

BAM! 2017

Hello there. Long time no post.

As usual the yearly resolution post, the one thing me and you can count on. I hope everyone had a great end of the year holiday, mine was business as usual- work, painting, and family and friends.

Lets get to it!

Along with hoping to post more, I have a TON of projects to share and need to clean up space on the hard drive. So before those pics go into storage, I should be posting them here. Up the post count and hope for at least 52. Thats one a week, and hopefully on Tuesdays, but we will see how that goes.

I am also facing a backlog of miniatures I want to paint that I have bought over the past 2 years. So I am calling it here and now to paint a previous bought model at least once a month. That way if commissions come across I should be able to hit that mark. Its not a lot, may not even dent my collection, but a step in the right direction.

Play more games! Aside from a weekly meetup at the LGS for some RPGing, I dont really have a routine gaming schedule. Honestly I would rather paint. Also running game demos was a big step for me the past 2 years and unfortunately with work schedule I had to put that on hold for the last half of last year. Looking forward to getting back into that.

Well I started off with my top 3 for the hobby. Lets see how this goes.

Until next time.

Robotech Tactics pt6 - Zentraedi Artillary, Recon, and Recovery Battlepods

Here we are, at the end of the Robotech Tactics commission. Its been a long journey, and now we can move onto more miniatures! For those keeping track at home these were all finished up at the beginning of 2015. Real life issues popping up and other various factors, finally led me to being able to upload them. In the mean time I kept painting new and different things, so we will slowly get to them.

The last of the models....are we ready? LETS GOOOooooo

Zentraedi Artillery Battlepods

Zentraedi Recon Battlepods

 Zentraedi Recovery Battlepod

Parting is such sweet sorrow, but I am glad I got those out there. Bonus, so was the client!

      That wraps up the Robotech Tactics commission. Meanwhile I have almost a whole years worth of stuff to edit, export, and upload. We have some Zombicide, Arcadia Quest, Reaper, an Arena Rex figure, some more quick jobs of Hordes, and possibly a Games Workshop figure too. There is probably some more in there as well and we will see them together in the future, some of you for the first time.

Until next time, may your dry-brushes be dry, and wet blends be wet (but not too wet). See you then!

Robotech Tactics pt5 - Zentraedi Regult Battlepods and Officer

     Hello there, welcome back to the blog. Been busy with more real life working, but came back to wrap up the Robotech Tactics from Palladium Books. Although the client (and a few hundred other people) is still waiting one the wave 2 stuff to release, This wraps up all the Wave 1 items from that Kickstarter.

      This post update, we look at the basic Zentraedi Regult Battlepods and the Glaug Officer Battlepod, with the Artillery, Recon, and Recovery Battlepods next post. Lets get started!

Regult Battlepods
Gathered in sets of four (for ease of picture taking), their positions a variety to break up the monotony of an army of drones.

Glaug Officer Battlepod
Going with the colors picked by the client to match the old anime version.

And there we have it! So close to the end of this set. It was a lot of miniatures as you can see in the first post of this series. Up next is the remaining Zentraedi forces, the Artillary, Recovery, and Recon Battlepods. See you then!
