Jasper gets back to painting with some IMEF marines

Recommended Posts

Got my painting room into shape enough to start painting.  Since I haven't really done much since...May? I figured I'd just done some quick table top figs to get back into it.

Most of my figs are still stuffed in the closet or basement, but I found a bag of IMEF marines I'd been using as proxies for SecFor IV in MERCS: Recon until I got some MERCS painted.

Picked out one of each (don't seem to have the kneeling guy, have to track him down once I get my Bones out of the closet) and threw some brown liner on them.



So far I've determined I need to steal the comfy padded chair back from my wife. The hard wooden chair will not do for long sessions.....

Finally got back in the paint room this morning, and I'm calling Nick done.   He'll go sit on the shelf and wait for his squad before heading to show off.

My spine tells me I've done enough for today.   The Khaki is done on all 4, and I've done the main olive on the Jigsaw there on the left.

Just tided him up a bit and then did and AP Strong Tone wash on him this morning.



My phone seems to find all that white from my new paint rack a little bright for taking picks.  Need find a piece of cardboard or something in a grey or brown to stick behind for WIP shots....the red cup is very nice but may be throwing off the colours slightly.

Had a nice cup of tea and did some more painting this morning. Tea worked well as a timer; when it was gone it was time for a break...



First pass on highlighting the Olives is done, although I already see a few spots to improve. And I need to tone down the bottom of the khaki on his legs, those are too bright compared to everything else.

Straps, metals, hair, base all still to go, but progressing at a decent rate for me, for table top.

I gave my back a bit of a jolt on the weekend (stupid ice hiding under stupid snow....is it spring yet?).  Today it is finally feeling decent so figured I'd test it with some simple base coating.



So that's the shadow khaki and olive on everyone (that I have, Aztec and Skids went off on a exchange a ...while ago, and are sitting in my cart waiting for the next order).

Back feels ok, so hopefully get some more done soon.

      I decided to do the Mystic Circle so I could do all kinds of occult and folk horror scenarios.
      Currently "cooking" in the utility sink. The base parts were pretty warped. I may glue them to some foamcore for a little extra stability, but mostly traced, because I need to keep them " modular" for storage (the arches, I think they still qualify as dolmens, but I forget, will get pulled on and off. Unless it really doesn't work ).

      This will likely be an all June project, because I had an unexpected computer death and porch reno and need to deal with that.

      Some quick paints for the table. The pirate is a good demonstration of why I don't try sculpting - in addition he had a lot of casting problems in his legs and feet, so.... he will do but I kind of cringe. The shroud was a very quick paint - I cut the hands off, because it seemed more creepy that way

      More from May - the cultist pair 77518. I also added in my other recently painted pair (77351) with cirlce and I think they make a nice grouping.

      My first time painting a chibi figure.  Probably not the last.  Painting this made me feel happy.

      I had a burst of mini painting and finished a bunch of minis this month - my first time painting I think since December 2020?
      Terraincrate (WIP)
      Crystal Peaks Campsite

      Peaceful Park

      Monster (WIP)

      Bones Pygmy Mammoth (WIP) with toddler

      Nolzurs Treant (WIP)

      Bones graveyard terrain (WIP)

      Bones High Rollers (WIP)

      Not all of these have been sealed, some have not had matte coats yet.
      The "fire" from the Crystal Peaks set got lost during priming.
      Links to come when not in my phone. Surprised myself with this.
