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....

      Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye.  They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests.  It can only be...
      The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
      A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
      Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week.   Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be.   To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
      The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look.  So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
       
       
      Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.

      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.
