Red Box Games KS Minis Arrived!

In yesterday's mail, the minis from Tre Manor's Red Box Games kick starter arrived.

They are pretty sweet. Slightly smaller than I was expecting them to be. But super detailed. They do have a lot of mold flashing all over them which will need to be cleaned off. But all in all I'm glad I backed the KS.

Reaper Miniatures' KS Vampire Pledge Flyover Video

Reaper Miniatures released a fly over video showing every miniature that is included with their Vampire level pledge from their Bones Kickstarter (which I am a backer of). That's a lot of minis and man does it get me excited for that box of goodies to arrive! Really, you should watch this video in full screen to take in all of the awesomeness.

In other news. I'm still working on the damn Flingers for Super Dungeon Explore...

Reaper posted a pic of their Nethyrmaul the Undying "miniature" dragon from their Bones Kickstarter. My god, this thing is sweet! And it's massive too. This baby is going to be the largest thing I've ever painted before, now that's a challenge in itself, but the other part is that it's undead... So I have to also paint necrotic flesh, which I've never done.

Paint is Flowing Once More.

I started painting the Flingers again last night while watching The Untouchables. I decided to paint their arm bands the same color as the head wraps and inked it all with what little Devlan Mud I have left. So far they look pretty good. I'm going for dirty cloth and an almost smokey appearance to them, since they handle fire and smoke pots.

No pics yet. But I've gotten back in the project and should be making more headway in the next few days.

Seeking Motiviation...

I tried getting some painting done on the SDE Flingers a couple nights ago and completely lacked motivation. I painted all of their face wraps, and was going to keep going at it, but decided to set it back down so I don't do things half assed.

I think my main issue at the moment is some of these models are really kinda muddy in the details. The arm bands on them look like they could either be leather pads or cloth straps. The sling with the stone in it lacks a clear line between where the stone starts and the cloth ends. And the face wraps are difficult to tell what is muscle and what is cloth wrapping.

My other main issue is I've come to realize that I don't really like squad painting. I prefer doing one offs of heroes or monsters, where I can focus on a single figure without needing to repeat the same steps over 5-6 different models. I would never be able to play Warhammer 40k or anything like it, where you are fielding that many models. I would never be able to get them all painted for play. Luckily Relic Knights seems to be smaller amounts of models, so I don't think it'll be as bad as 40k.

I need to find my groove again badly. Perhaps I'll take a small break from SDE again and paint up Princess Malya from RK. Then come back to it. But I really need to finish the base set of SDE, so I can knock out Roxor, so I'll be all caught up when the undead expansion releases.

Who's wise idea was it to paint all the minis anyway?

Kingdom Death: Monster KS Ends with a Freebie!

Looks like Kingdom Death: Monster ended at $2,049,721 and their final stretch goal was a free miniature! That's cool, and I believe it left the campaign on a high note. A lot of folks were grubbing for new stretch goal after the freebie, but I say end it without unattained goals. And giving everyone something for free is a nice way to end a successful KS, like a big thanks to everyone involved.

Anyway, it looks like anyone that is recieving a reward package of physical goods will be getting 2 free minis in their boxes. One for hitting 2 mil and the other as a Christmas present.

UPDATED: Kingdom Death: Monster and Get a Special Edition Candy & Cola? Yes Please!

I've been super busy lately and the paint projects just keep stacking up... I've been unable to touch anything mini painted related. I did just back a new project on Kickstarter though.
