A quick update for today, showing what I’ve built recently and what projects are still ongoing.
Here’s what I’m working on right now: trying to madly finish the last couple of miniatures for my Infinity Nomads. Above are two zonds (Nomad Remotes) – the front one has its black and red areas finished, whereas I’ve just done base-and-shade on the back one.
Why am I trying to finish the Nomads rather than continuing on with more Napoleonics?
Yeah, these guys are coming out. I had a “shut up and take my money” moment as soon as I saw them (dammit!).
Stuff that’s in the pipeline:
I caved to the kickstarter temptation last year with the Bombshell Babes Kickstarter, run by Bombshell Miniatures. Their kickstarter (now complete) was to produce models and moulds for a range of female miniatures, and since good female miniatures are relatively hard to find and their concept art looked good I took the plunge.
Well, the miniatures arrived last week – there was a bit of a hiccup as the reinforcement packs I ordered weren’t in the package, but a quick message has them on their way – and I’m very impressed by both the quality of the sculpting and the quality of the miniatures!
They’ll be releasing these for regular orders soon – keep an eye on their website for updates.
I (once the reinforcements arrive) will have gotten 27 metal miniatures, a bunch of resin base inserts, smaller metal sidekick models (I’ll show them later), and a couple of sprues of weapons, all for $182.
Here’s what I’ve received so far:
