Lately I've been working on things that have languished for too long and this project is no exception. I bought Cmon's Kick The Board Game over a year ago and immediately cleaned and primed the miniatures. Since then they've simply sat in a box unpainted. Last night however I finally got started. Having bought this game mostly for the hero miniatures I decided to start this project with the generic enemy figures. My thinking is that this will give me a better understanding of the miniatures before moving on to the hero figures I actually care about (and bought the game for). As the generic foot soldiers don't exactly have uniforms apart from their masks I decided a hodge podge color scheme would be best. Starting off though I quickly decided to paint all the coats as leather jackets. That decision called for a bit of reference photo gathering, which had the added benefit of throwing off all my targeted ads as now Google is convinced I need a new jacket. Armed with nice reference photos of the various colored jackets I intend to paint I finally began. The first batch recieved a bright red leather jacket based off the jacket seen in Fight Club. After all of that not much thought went into the rest of their outfits. Honestly I basically just grabbed some of my go to colors and got to work. I think it worked out though and I ended up with some passable miniatures after only one night of work. Tonight I started my second batch. For these guys I also went with a red leather but in a darker shade. I didn't quite finish them in one session but they're close. Choosing to paint two reds may have been a mistake as they look nearly identical. Side by side however the difference can be seen. So after only two nights I've nearly finished two batches of generic criminals with only three more to go before I start on the bosses. I'd call that a good start.
