So in the last...year? We have received the second wave of our Shadows of Brimstone Kickstarter pledge. We went all in and opted to get everything. I haven't started painting anything from it. I've primed most of it but just haven't had the drive to do it until now. This is the pile of sprues fresh out of the box.

Then the cleaning process.

I'm not even sure all of them fit into those pictures, I know the second picture is definitely not all of them, that was just the first wave that got cleaned. There's something like...137? minis there if I counted right. This is in no way everything we have but just what we got in the final wave. Well now the company ran a second Kickstarter to expand the game even more (I already don't know where to put all this so let's buy more!). Which should be shipping sometime this year. That one also, again if I counted correctly, has about 181 total minis. So I'm swimming in minis that need painting so I thought I'd start a WIP to motivate me.

 

I've already got most of it written out and color schemed. The nice thing is a lot of the minis that are groups of 6+ or larger came with painting guides that are optional. I'm opting to use the ones that are available to me. I plan on using mostly the paints that came in the Shadows of Brimstone paint sets by Army Painter with a smattering of Reaper here and there. I'm going to try to get this all done before shipping of the second Kickstarter. Then it'll be time to build and paint those!

The sheer amount of sprues is frightening! That’s half the battle won already, you can do it ::D:

 

I've still got a couple to put together but those are resin so I just haven't gotten there yet. 

 

I do want to note for the resin minis I will most likely only use Reaper paints since they behave a little better than the ones in the kits.

@Crowley Yeah, the perks of the paints that came in the kits are that they're thicker. I don't think them as much as I normally would so it goes a little faster on the big things, the smaller things will take much longer.

Quick first coat on the skin. Then the paints are the onesv from the two SoB painting kits. I don't have the black or white anymore because of issues with them so I've been using Reaper's solid white and solid black to replace those.

Took a long break a little while ago. Got the wings based in the same color as the skin. Going to work on the rocks and sword next.

Cthulu with sword is first up today! (No idea why he has the sword.)

To make old god style sushi?  Stuff was a lot bigger back then, so you needed a deadlier weapon for a tasty lunch...  Or so I'm guessing.

Worked on the sword and base. I didn't realize until I'd painted the base that he was standing on a column. So going to try my hand at brown marble but not,until tomorrow, done for the night.
