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....

      "And some good news here. We're preparing the new Kickstarter right now, called "Sitting Folks". Yes, we want to create a lot of miniatures in sitting poses. The launching date is about the middle of November. Yes, we're still painting rewards from the previous campaign, but the new one will not affect the process." -- from the Dwarven Forge Gaming Talk forum!

      Story
      Long gone is the time of Dwarves in Midlam, a city built over the ruins of their Middle Home, which lay between the Lost Mountains and the Southern Holds.  The Barons of Midlam have always claimed their city was gifted to them by the dwarves of old, and claim an ancient alliance, although dwarves have rarely been seen in the city, and must register their presence with the Town Council.
      Far to the North, so they say, lies the Lost Mountains, a place of legend and dragons.  It is said that many years ago, a dwarf came to Midlam in secret, hired two guides and headed North, never to be seen again.  There was also rumours that a group of grizzled dwarven mercenaries made the journey, but they too disappeared into folklore.
      Now rumours abound of Dwarven Adventurers, heading North once more, into the perpetual freezing wastes.  The frightened chatter speaks of their desire to rid the Mountains of the orcs and goblins and return the Dwarven King to his throne.  Nobody knows what truly lies North, but people fear the return of the old wars, rampaging dragons and a dark evil that has no name...

      I backed their original Mythic Battles: Pantheon. Good miniatures. 
       
      IIRC, Mythic Battles: Pantheon core sets in the KS, and possibly some expansions in the PM. Expansion reprints were difficult because printer required a minimum number, and Monolith wasn't sure how many sets backers would want. Also, let me know how their fulfilment has been going. (Not to be confused with their former partner, Mythic games.)

      Another KS by Titan Forge. I have to admit that I haven't played Bloodfields yet, but I like the minis.
