Lidless Eye Hobbies: More Tales of the Sands

Recommended Posts

This time, we have a themed group.  I wanted to added some more members to my Arabian Nights themed forces, with intent to use them for RPG encounters and a Frostgrave warband.  Last time it was mostly Reaper's "Legends of the Sands" boxed set, this time it's a variety of sources.

 

The group:

And unrelated to the theme except for being found in the frozen city of Frostgrave, an Ice Toad from a D&D Giant Frog:

Those eyes on the toad are amazing. Also love the color selection and details on the rest of them. Love how the red and purple turned out, I am always trying it and not succeeding. I think because it is highlighted with the tan colors it turned out really well.

Ooh, what a nice, unified grouping!  These look really useful.

 

I like how your use of colors makes them all work together, but they're still highly individual.

      I realised that I had so many Frostgrave soldiers painted up that i had quite a big army for games like Saga, Warlords of Erehwon, Or even Kings of War. Am going to have a war machine with Frostgrave soldier crew, and these lancers /light cavalry. 
       
      These are the Frostgrave females, mainly, mixed with the legs and horses from Gripping Beast's Arab heavy cavalry. I cut the FG minis in half with a razor saw at the belt line and they fit  the bodies perfectly. There is a Victrix cloak in there and the armoured rider has Oathmark elf arms, but essentially everything else (including the bits and pieces of luggage stuck to the horses) is from the Frostgrave females sprue. 
       
      I will probably do a black wash on the riders (not the horses) and a couple of highlights. 
       
      I need to do a snow effect base and then make up 5 more. The idea is to have a 50/50 male female unit but keep the light armour/wrapped up look.

      Thanks to a friend's encouragement I finished my Orctober project just in time.  
      It may only be one lonely Shaman but he still counts!
       
      Technically also my first Bones V miniature painted since he was one of the monthly preview promos.

      Every now and then I've seen people start up a WIP thread that's more or less along the lines of "clean the shelf of (blank)".  For me, it's of hopes and dreams, of projects started, but not quite realized, finished, or...  Even painted.  This isn't necessarily going to be one of those more serious minivember, one mini a day, or even a burn towards the finish line to actually "complete" the one a week RPChallenge, uh, challenge.  That and while I'd love to do minivember or even 99 minis in 99 days both of those seem a tad too... Intense for me.  Especially with how often I get distracted from such with playing computer games, longer days at work, or even starting to have a social life!  (Yeah, some of the Infinity gamers in town are starting to slowly coax me into coming out to play and do things, it's kind of nice!)
       
      To meet my own goal this year of beating 2018's count, I'd need another "14 points".  Coincidentally, that's fairly close to the mark of 18 for October through December, so I figure why not!  ...I guess I am going for the RPChallenge bit after all, but I'm going to give a whirl at a full twenty, because I like that number more than 14 or 18! 
       
      In short, my goal is to try and clear some of the assembled and primed backlog I have, and focus on mainly getting those painted up and FINISHED.  Naturally I'm not going to lock out the prospect of adding in a few more minis to the table (I am more than likely going to be building up a tournament HaqqIslam force for February 2020, which will require more units to be acquired, assembled, and painted), but as for some of the things that come to mind for being taken care of...
      Getting Wyrmgear's mods sculpted - I really would like to see him at least standing up at the end of the year Additional work on my Rainbow Dragon Challenge Ebonwrath - he's taking up a decent amount of space on my desk, plus, hey, DRAGON! Infinity Red Veil, and Beyond Red Veil boxed set - at least the HaqqIslam portion, anyways, although I'd like to at least get the Yu Jing assembled and based too Various CAVs in various states Other, smaller dragons! (Pathfinder Red Dragon, Temple Dragon, and I think I have a Narthrax hiding around somewhere too) minotaurs, gnolls, and some Skaven character/heroes A few minis that have become "paint catchers" for when I mix up too much  
      There's probably more, but still.  I'm not going to keep a full on tally of things, but either way, I'm hoping to work on, and finish, at least 14 "points" worth of minis, but 18 "points" would be awesome... Or even more.  Apparently, as of this post, there are ten weeks and four days until the end of 2019.
       
      What am I mostly aiming for by doing this thread?  Well, by having a WIP I'm regularly updating, I'm hoping to not only get more work done close to every day on miniatures (even if it's just twenty minutes), but also get back into the habit of sitting down and hobbying every day.  I really do like how relaxed I am when doing it, and it helps me cool and calm down too.  That and, oh yeah, I already mentioned the habit thing.
       
      Anyways, I did mention something else in the beginning of all of this about something silly, well...  Let's put it this way....

      ^I was okay with some of them trying to teach others how to "roll over" and "play dead", even if it meant my Switch is a little harder to get to....
      I was even okay with some of them guarding one of my spare graphics cards, and the Mission Models iridescent and pearl paints...

      ^Yup, even didn't really mind them taking over a shelf in my cube shelf (there are more minis hiding in the ice cream pail, they're in there due to having been washed) - Actually, this helped kickstart me being able to paint again, since ALL of those were on my desk before tidying up...
       
      But once you try and hold my benching rig hostage....  Or you try to do dark rituals around my turntables...  Oh no, this needs to be stopped.  if I let them continuing running amok, they'll try and take over the entire living room!  (there were additional pics, but it kind of felt like things were dragging on).
       

      ^So...  Here's how my desk looked last time I tidied it up.  It looks a little different, and somewhat messier now, but that's because I have a few projects on the go that I was working on before this post.  Not all of the minis in that picture are mine (the Pathfinder Red Dragon belongs to hubby, for example) but still.  There's a decent amount of stuff on the table, to say the least.
       

      ^So here's where I left off two days ago - I apparently didn't take a picture of yesterday's table, but there were two more Haqq minis done, and I suspect that's also simply because we played Division 2 for like two hours yesterday, then I worked on minis, then I went to bed rather tired...
       

      ^And how things are looking so far today.  All seven minis from the Operation: Red Veil started set are now assembled (although they'll be an eighth one added in eventually due to having been sent a double by accident - Corvus was quick and prompt when replying on their mispack line... Err, email), and bases for the three miniatures from Beyond Operation: Red Veil are drying, so they'll be assembled tomorrow.  The reason why the seventh guy doesn't have anything extra on his base yet is quite simply because I'd assembled him tonight.  I'm not quite sure what kind of colours I'll be going with on my Haqq, but I strongly suspect they won't really be all that traditional, or at least studio paint jobs.  Totally lost on what colours I'll be going with for the Oathsworn Minotaur as well, but I'll worry about that when I get to that front - today's focus was assembly and basing.
