Jasper Delves into the Shelves of Shame

Recommended Posts

It really should be shelves and trays and boxes and cases and drawers and cupboards...

As I try to get my painting room organized I keep being frustrated by where to put all these assortments of random partially painted, primed, and unprimed but assembled loose figures that I have in every conceivable container.  So I decided I should really try to finish some up.  They will be a good change of pace or when I'm tired of whatever I'm working on, or good motivation when I'm having trouble getting going (that's why I grabbed some today).

Now some of these are big enough groupings that they will get their own threads, like all the Clan War stuff, the entire VOID Syntha army, the Chronopia stuff, etc but the misc bits and bobs will end up here.

 

Starting out we have:

I "think" the ballistae and catapult (onager?) were from megaminis.  The multi-barrel cannon I picked up at the game store back close to 2 decades ago and have no idea who made it.

 

I haven't done anything to the cannon yet except dust it a bit.  The catapult was started, I just finished the wood to match.  One ballista had the wood done, I did the other two to match.  The "paint" used is the old Reaper Pro Paint Wood Shade Ink.  Painting it over straight white primer gives that result.  That's how I did wood back in the day..... Not sure what I'd use to highlight it....

It doesn't match anything I've found images of for GW (or anyone else for that matter).

It's a cool little piece, which is presumably why I picked it up, but no markings on it or anything.

Is it a 28mm or a 15mm organ gun?

Found some time to work on the ballistae over the weekend.

Mostly done.  Just need to tidy a few spots up.  I was getting shaky so it was time to stop last night.

 

I wanted different colours for the spears in case I ever use these when running D&D or something.  My criteria for picking the colours was that I knew I wanted red, green and blue, and then I just picked P3 pots that had never been opened....

      Guns, ninjas, hobbits, dogs, monkeys, pumpkins, and mancatchers. 

      Sure, you *say* you could otherwise do some conversion. But good luck finding a mancatcher *and* a monkey.
       
      Stuff's in metal and cast in the USA. Magnets are from China, but they have multiple suppliers.

      Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100.
       
      There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder.

      "After over three years in the making, we are proud to present you the Eternal Eight - a WORLD'S FIRST 3D mini war game with innovative real 3D RELIEF. 
      The goal of the game is to  capture the enemy’s King. The advantages of Eternal Eight are the 3D castles, fortresses and villages with a myriad of traps, labyrinths and  secret passages. All of the army bases (castles, villages, fortresses) are easy to assemble and move around.
      The game can be easily incorporated into your existing game table setup or provide a great addon to some of your existing mini war games."

      Well, looks like Hasbro is doing their own version of a kickstarter for a new release of one of the all-time classics.  I don't know if their site for the crowdfunding would be considered as a commercial site, but I'm sure it will be easy enough to find.  I'm in!

      Story
      Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, four projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive!
      The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Sons of Yetl Black. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).
