New Year More Minis to paint. To 2018 and Beyond

Playing some Twilight Imperiam, here we are setting it up

Setup and starting up

Near the end, it was a long tough game and I enjoyed it. Not for the faint of heart for sure. hardcore gamers only apply.

A Brother Vinnie figure using for TNT

A few Reaper minis will be using for TNT, Dracula's America or something. 
Blaine for Dreadball (coach)


A few shots of RBJgc kickstarter. Not sure what these will be used for.




Last year I completed 14 projects and a bunch left to do still yet. I hit 367 minis painted. I wanted at least once to hit a mini a day. What helped was a lot of trooper type of minis to make it easier to hit.  I also completed 14 projects so my goal is to complete 15 or more. If I hit 365 minis painted that would be great also.  I already completed one project this year with the RBJgc minis (woot) so that is at least 14 left to do. 

 Here is a breakdown of last years completions: 
1)Shadows of Brimstone: Swamps of Death (core) this is one of the 2 core sets of the game. I hit a stride on these core sets and ran through them.

2)Shadows of Brimstone: Ancients(core) Another core set to the game complete. I liked painting this set better i think. The models in both sets could have been better but they painted up fine after all.

3)Shadows of Brimstone: Void(exp) A small expansion for Sahdows and these models were awesome to paint. 

4)Shadows of Brimstone: Flesh Stalkers(exp) another expansion that was fun to paint. Probably my 2nd favorite expansion in this set. The derelict ship being my first. Still on my to do list.

 5)Shadows of Brimstone:Harvesters(exp) Another small expansion and the models were simple to paint but the models look awesome.

6)Shadows of Brimstone: Guardian of Targa(exp) A huge model in this expansion and was pretty easy to paint.

7) Cthulhu : Reaper bones mini I bought for my daughter a few years ago and finally got around to painting it for her. 

8) Imperial Assault Core: The core game done for this model intensive game.

9) Crossover Thugs: Crossover Miniatures kickstarters I finished up. There were 2 KS I backed for these thugs. They make good generic enemies for games.

10) Reaper Aliens : Aliens from the reaper KS I got for generic baddies

11) Reaper Giant: this undead giant I bought for KOW

12) Mars Attacks Core Set : The core set from the Mars Attacks Kickstarter.

13) Dreadball Orks: A team for dread ball is complete, I had started them a while back but finally finished a complete team

14) Dreadball Ghosts: Easy to paint with a little wash and highlights. An easy project to finish.

Achievement Unlocked! 365 + painted.

Dreadball Ghosts team is finally complete. 7 figures, 2 prone markers and the ball. Although the ball I just gave a light wash. All of the ball carriers  are magnetized to hold the ball.

 I painted the bases white on the front to show the arcs.  Since the figures are similar i used the base color to differentiate them. Strikers have a lighter blue tint bases, Guards darker blue, and jacks have a purplish blue hue. All players that can carry the ball have a painted magnet on the front of the base. that is that red dot on the base.

Dreadball Orks(marauders) complete? Yes I completed this team in 2014, but I touched up the paint, added bases and magnetized the bases to hold the ball(Ball carriers). Also added another guard(Full face mask) and Slippery Joe(Captain).
The yellow dot is a painted magnet, the base is purple and the front arc is yellow.

September 2017 Update

First update of September, depending on my luck and time hopefully one of many? We shall see.

9 Shadows of Brimstone minis done. 3 slashers and 6 tentacles for Swamps of death starter box.

AvP Predalien done. I picked up AvP at Gencon 2017.

Cthluhu is DONE!!!! This is my daughters but was on my table for about 3 years for her.

Another shot, I originally painted Grey/Green and she did not like the colors, so i changed it to her colors. This will be counted as a completed project since it is huge. He will count as a SciFi mini in my total.
