People who don’t paint miniatures and just see them online in say my Facebook feed don’t realize that a lot of effort goes into them. They are actually quite small even though I mainly paint heroic 28mm scale, there are both smaller and larger scale miniatures. Some how I ended up on my own Flickr feed after adding a contact and I thought this model looked pretty good even blown up like that.
I still haven’t used them in a game and with the way my life is going my models may soon go into storage for an extended period of time. I just can’t find a job. Today I haven’t been the most productive, just stayed at home and surfed the net mostly. But I thought it would make a fun photo to take the mini out of the cabinet and hold it up beside the picture on Flickr as shown on my 13″ MacBook Pro, to give an idea of scale. I did something similar once before on Muskblog.
My brief little sojourn in the hobby is over. It is still technically Monday morning and I have to find a job and do some volunteer work. I didn’t get the best light today in Vancouver, but that’s OK, I over compensate with light bulbs. I took close ups of all five out of print Khorne Bezerkers I finished last night. I noticed little areas that could use a bit more work or tiny details I should have picked out. I’ll look them over again when the varnish is dry and I put on the glossy red blood.
I don’t know when I’ll pick up the brush again. Maybe tonight, but I have a lot of other things I want to get done. I have plenty of models that I’ve assembled and primed that have sat too long, so I’ll be chipping away at them, eventually.
There are a record 70 official competitors. So if you want to see a pile of cool mini’s you know which link to click. Every week for the next ten there will be a bunch of freshly painted unseen miniatures in all types of scales and genres. People can vote for their favourites.
My naked chicks should be in there somewhere. I didn’t take the best group photo as I only have an iPhone. Some people didn’t even enter as they couldn’t take good photos which seems strange… I’ve been hit by ‘real life’ but I have two entries done, so hopefully this week I’ll make progress on my OOP Bezerkers. In the meantime I’ve got some minis to check out.
