In rounding up figures to log what I had painted last year, I turned up lots of half-finished minis. Some of them had little bits I was unhappy with; some need repair; some I had lost interest in or overlooked; some I felt weren't going as well as I would have liked; and some were just in the limbo of unfinished projects. So I figured I could finish them up, to tabletop standard at least, and have them usable in games. That's going to be my year's beginning project, clearing out the backlog of figures. They range from almost completely finished (except maybe for some basing) at the front, to just colors blocked in at the back. So I laid out the most nearly finished ones to begin with and got started. First I glued things that needed it: Some Tom Meier Thunderbolt Mountain elves are exquisite, but on tiny bases prone to tipping over. I glued them onto pennies. And I glued some skulls and books and things onto the bases of Hasslefree's not-Scooby-Gang. And by not fussing over bases and accepting that I may be unhappy with certain aspects, but they are okay for gaming, I finished four figures this first session! These are Reaper's 50134: Racquel Blackrose, Buccaneer by Patrick Keith; Reaper's 02115: Mishka The Mystic by the incomparable Sandra Garrity; Hasslefree Miniature's HFC002 Mineko by Kev White; and Reaper's 02075: Katarina The Invoker, also by Sandra Garrity. I am a little dissatisfied with them, especially Mineko's kimono which went a little wonky. On the other hand, yay! finished!
