I've Done Something!

I haven't posted since April 9th but that doesn't mean I haven't been hobbying. Sadly, it does mean that I haven't been hobbying much.

My last post showed off some Oddzial Osmy New Vistula Legion with a few Mechwarrior mech repaints. I've since based the mechs and painted a few other figs as well.

Group shot!
The little tanketts are Autonomous Mortars (nicknamed "Auntie May" by the troops). They'll bombard any bad guys they "see" and for those they can't see the LRRP are always ready to paint a target for good ol' Auntie May.

The rocket pods will be interesting. I want them to be parachuted onto the battlefield and then function much them same way the AMs do. I figure scatter dice will have to come into play. I think I have three of these painted (it might be four).

That's it for decent pics. I did get a DSLR for my birthday but good grief, the thing is complicated. I'm going to have a to really pour over some tutorials to get the hang of it and that eats a chunk out of the hobby time.

I have been slowly but surely working on some electrical box buildings. A few more doors and rooftop greebles and I'll be ready to to prime and paint them.

They'll go with these city tiles I've had sitting around for way too long:

Why are there only 7 you ask? I was just too lazy to do the 8th.
 These were inspired by Spacejacker's great tiles and I still have a ways to go before I'm happy with them. My buddy Chris has another full set (of 8... he's slightly less lazy than me) so we will someday have a huge city table for 15mm.

That's it for now. If you've read all the way down here I think you are a very special sort of nerd. Thanks!

    1. Thanks, Mr. H! They're super cheap (and not the best material) but there's an amazing variety to choose from.

    3. That's called a Blade. I ordered it through http://www.miniaturemarket.com/ When I said cheap, I wasn't kidding. That hulking brute was only $3.25. I bought 11 minis from them for a grand total of $17.39, shipping included. Well worth a look I think.
