To prevent Moonstone fatigue, however, I decided to finish off some things I've had sitting around for ages. First, the Dark Stone Hydra:

Big snakey snake snakes.

Great big annoying regenerating beastie (as all hydra should be) from Brimstone.

And, some star wars stuff for our Rebels campaign:

Loth-Cats! As my 5 year old daughter declared, "Awwwwww they're so cute... And evil!" The white ones are force-sensitive in the show so work well for the elites.

Utinni! The paler Jawa is a print, and is clearly off to Lothal for its holidays. Again, another elite variant (which makes sense, as the elite is less zappy and more barter-y). Speaking of desert inhabitants ...

Old Ben himself. Trying to remember my human skin recipe and, on that note...

ISB Agent and converted Agent Kallus.
Work is managing to be even more stressful, which I didn't think was possible. Thank feck for paint and dakka!

Copied over for the break. Steady on, you'll get through this yet. For what it's worth, this is midterms season and I'll get a crop of essays to grade over the weekend, hooray! Painting helps me through that as well.

My painting log is full of snakes

Lol I'll say to Hasbro They definitely missed a trick there, especially as you can get purple/pink/blue Loth Cats. On the Hasbro note, the boy has actually pretty much taken over the toy reviewing from me now, he really impressed them with his reviews of Studio Series Hot Rod 86 and Marvel Legends Thanos over at Big Comic Page (he wants to get into toy design generally in life). Proud geek dad.
Thanks all for the continued support. Whole lot of love for my nerdlings.
Couple more Star Wars characters today. First up, Wildfire:

Clone Trooper gone rogue, he's one of the characters from Heart of the Empire that the kids are using in the campaign. He's definitely not Captain Rex Wanted a really aged look to his armour.
And what campaign would be complete without its villain?

Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Empire's most brilliant strategist.
And a group shot of the current push:

Next is the Rebels themselves - the crew of the Ghost, plus Ahsoka - in the build-up to May the 4th. But might skip back to Moonstone, I'm a creature of whimsy after all 400+ figs done in the first quarter this year, not bad, not bad

Nice to see Thrawn in there. Some of these days I need to get and re-read the old Zahn books. I read them when I was 12 or so and know I enjoyed them back then.
And I'll echo the others on the Loth-Cats
Congrats to your boy regarding those reviews. Really cool and hope he manages to make his toy designing dreams come true one day.

thanks, I really appreciate it. Humans get a boar rider, not quite as cool there's plenty of comedy sculpts in the range though.

So, counting down to May 4th... Spectre Cell! Painted together, albeit in stages and colour blocks to make sure the colours matched.

Front row: Chopper, their faithful rust bucket. I love that he's an ally (so a fully playable character) and not just a gameplay/token mechanic. Ezra Bridger, with short hair and new lightsaber. And, by far the most stressful, Sabine Wren.

Checks? Unit number? Golden chest bird? A tiny owl?! What is this - a space marine?!!

Back row Hera Syndulla, with impossible skintone. Zeb Orrelios, who I ended up enjoying as a paint more than I expected. Kanan Jarrus, with some ramped OSL for reasons.
If Kanan's helm and Ezra's hair/saber weren't enough of a clue, the minis are season 3 rebels versions.
This is the May
What's going to be the mini tomorrow? Ah, patience, young padawan...

Toy designer huh? That'd be very cool indeed... I'm very jealous! A friend used to run a site dedicated to action figure previews/reviews and did really well at it, getting lots of advertising, invites to the toy fairs and to secret previews from the toy companies (including flights/hotel over to the US), so the reviews are certainly a great way for him to make contacts and learn more about it

Well, here's hoping he can keep his old dad in toys in his dotage
Ha. Typical. Forgot to post this yesterday!

Ahsoka Tano

Well, at least she's finished
Next, back to Brimstone we go, with the remaining plastic first ed characters. My aim is to get at least all of the Brimstone plastics painted before the end of the month which is just the Swamps of Death characters Ghost Warriors, Scafford Gang and Wasteland Terralisk. That sets me up nicely for Forbidden Fortress (the feudal fantasy Japan version) which is coming for my birthday at the end of June. Glorious!

Got a mahoosive delivery of Moonstone also, so my Leshavault cultists and Faeries are viable as full teams of 6, plus the trolls and pirate goblins for Dominion (for the boy) and the rest of the Commonwealth humans and 2 giants for me. Whilst they won't all skip to the front of the queue, there are some priority figs (let's be honest - more goblins).

Work is... Bonkers but bearable.

Thanks mate. I really don't see them as well painted, but more traded off rush jobs. We had a cross-marking meeting today and it was great to just hang out with other teachers from outside my usual school bubble. Teaching media can feel a bit isolated sometimes as we're a small subject. Plus we're all COLOSSAL nerds.

Got some Brimstone finished up. First, the last big bad, the Wasteland Terralisk

This is a blasted wastes (alien desert) enemy, hence the martian soil / russet colour scheme.

I was going for angry prawn.
And more enemies, my 3D printed Crimson Hand Inquisitor and Undead Mexican Standard bearer

Plus finally got on with the remaining characters.

Tidying up to do but won't take long. Which just leaves 15 figs! 6 Ghost Warriors (really scary corrupt natives), 7 mutant outlaw gangers and a couple of Reaper Serpentmen to flesh out the snakey ranks.

Wife thinks my collection is starting to get too big again. Think it's time to focus on building the pile of shame

Crustaceans feature heavily on alien desert planets... Apparently. The Wastelanders are very exoskeletal and the most common enemy is Sand Crabs. I actually have some really good wasteland terrain STLs that are crustacean and coral themed. Hmmmmmmmm...

Thanks buddy! well, they're at wip stage already, so I'm broadly optimistic.
Pretty tough weekend. Very short fuse :fire: because full of rot and general work stress. Just got to keep ploughing through though.
Still. Positives:
Another great game with the kids, first through the mines...

Then onto the wartorn alien streets of Trederra

Minefield. Joy lot of fun to play, very different again as you're mostly trying to avoid patrols and the detritus of war. We're now stuck in the Wastelands, as it turns out the Trederrans sent a doomsday device through to wipe out half a dozen worlds including ours, so, that sucks

We destroyed the doomsday device, but the portal collapsed behind us. I died, but it's ok, I got better now I'm an undead gunslinger. with a tentacle moustache. I'm basically Davey Jones at this point.

Meanwhile, started to finish up the ghost warriors

Highlights (esp on the skin tones) need done but really pleased, particularly the purple skin and blood soaked hair. Charmers.
Once they're sorted, that just leaves the Scafford gang, and we'll be done with all the plastics! Result.

Realised one of my Moonstone faeries was missing a hand, sent them a wee note... And they sent a whole new fig great customer service there.

Hey ho,

You know why crustaceans are so common?

It's because Nature might abhor a vacuum, but it LOVES crabs.

Carcinerization- the tendency of species, over time, to evolve into crabs.

Crabs are awesome. We're the best I have a fantastic pirate goblin riding a crab, Crusty Balboa, who is going to be fun. I'm also going to make a King Crab Wasteland warlord. Why not Zoidberg?
aku-chan wrote:Continuing to do a great job on the Brimstone stuff, the Ghost Warriors in particular are looking really good.

Thanks man. I really enjoyed them, actually. More colours got blocked in on the Scafford gang today, so very real progress there, too. However, my attempt to nail all the Brimstone has been subverted by a mate who is giving me his Magma Fiends - mine are stuck in transit from the US, and he's happy to wait for them as he's not on a Brimstone kick atm. So definitely good news/bad news

It never ceases to surprise me how good 3D printing can be. One of my frustrations with Shadows of Brimstone is that group-boss enemies and variant characters are only ever expensive resin promos - hence my printed Inquisitor and Hellfire Witch, and converted Mexican Banner and Generalissimo. So I'm thrilled to have printed a Naga that works as a Nure-onna Sorceress.

Also in the mix we have more moonstone scatter, a Ronin for the wee man (another Brimstone character that only exists in promo form) and a bit of a repair job on Atrocitus Lord of Ysmault.
In other news, a big pack of stuff got sent away to the exam board today, so it's another check off the list.
Tbh despite the madness, the stress, I feel surprisingly ok. Vaccine Friday, so that's another bonus.

Good news everyone! (Watching a lot of Futurama just now ) Two more Reaper Nagendra:

I love this range from Reaper; I'm quite fond of Serpentmen as a theme generally. I slightlyregret not backing the new Brimstone Serpentmen at ks... But it's not like I'm short of stuff these are Yellow Tails, the most numerous of the Jargono tribes; I've added in the archer in anticipation of when I get the rules for them, and I've another one in the post Ah, future proofing! Next, at last, the Scafford Gang:

Mutant ex-Confederate outlaws, they only come in two sculpts, plus Col. Scafford himself (tentacle legs), so there was much chopping and changing. Dreadball mutant parts proved VERY useful my favourite is the one that's started to turn into a Dark Stone Brute. And finally, Magma Fiends!

Horrendous horde monsters: they turn the floor into lava, collapse walls and spew fire. And you encounter LOADS (6-12 at a time) Now these were primed with a fresh can of paint and before I knew it... Primer shock AGAIN. A little digging reveals that Kobra have changed their propellant now it doesn't really have a negative impact on these wee rocky fellas but it's damned irritating in the big picture. Going to have to start buying actual model primer, at actual gaming price, again.

And, well, though I generally dislike posting wips, I'm loving how this mantic Simian is going

Pimpin he's getting used as support staff for Dreadball.
On a side note, that's every current brimstone plastic that's not part of feudal Japan painted since January. 400 or so figs, and over 460 this year total

Lol cheers. I'm now using the one with a chest portal as my character model as my gunslinger has mutated AGAIN. He's also got a conjoined mutant twin now. Happy days!

Right, so what's next? A little break from the old, weird West... Faeries!

The Enclave, Teetoe and Fraya, just done in washes.

I'm particularly happy with Teetoe's wings.

And some Moonstone accessories:

A reaper villager, for scenarios, and another fallen tree, with more intact web.

Plus, a little Mantic orrery, for Hellboy - it crops up in a couple of scenarios. Didn't want the full Terrain Crate but managed to snag this from eBay.

More Brimstone shenanigans, in the Blasted Wastes.

Much fun, we tracked down another key, fought in gladiator pits and scavenged much loot. Oh, and bought a rusty bus! Excellent nonsense. Back to Earth, and thence to Cynder's pits of flame!

In the meantime, and for variety, something sci-fi!

Big Grey Vinnie. He is here to teach you to punch harder.

The new Dreadball expansion adds in the rules for coaching assistants that give you rerolls on a particular stat, and I just love this Star Saga promo fig. I reckon he's a washed-up Simian guard who never quite made it to the big time so now coaches the next generation on how to hit harder, better, faster. And, another member of the Townsfolk:

Which means that I have 3 painted, of the 5 needed for the scenario (because I also have the fig I painted as Mad Hettie). I have another reaper dude, a little grumpy goblin porter, but I'll probably print something as number 5.
On the subject of goblins, I am progressing with the rest of them; I'm loving paint these goblins, so more Moonstone to follow.
But for now... Beaky Bobby!

Take yer medicine!

I love this fig

Not going to lie, quite proud of this dude

too true. The south will mutate again! The Magma Fiends are great fun, quite a simple paint job but I had a clear idea in my head how to tackle them.

Anyway, I warned you I was on a goblin kick.

Boom Boom McBoom! He's a redcap, and he likes to make stuff go boom, funnily enough.

A good support figure, quite tough to play as his range isn't great, but interesting with a good buff ability

Shabaroon, Goblin Wizard. Bit too fond of the shrooms

He has one of the best abilities in the game, a magic attack that's lethal, but he's fragile.

And Grub, another slightly mutant Goblin. He's in the process of turning into a goblin faerie hybrid, and can be played in this or evolved version.

He's a really complex piece, hyper mobile, really built for scenarios and board control, but like any bug can easily go squish. I really enjoyed doing the wing casings.

And finally, the reaper porter and my spare tree base as a piece of quirky scatter. Poor little chap. Quite likely to get kicked, if you ask me. Another citizen for scenario play. Speaking of which...

Had a great game with the youngling, who's being forced to self-isolate and is generally miserable. So some Dominion on Dominion action!

We used the new Sidebar, which really helped stay organised - a great buy.
He ran goblins as usual, I tried out faeries along with my favourite munchy troll. It was... Terrifying. Faeries are crazy fast and very finesse to play... and I tabled my poor kid in 2 Turns. Oh, the guilt. It really was no fault of his tactically, tbh, I just didn't anticipate how scary they could be. Still, now he knows how to beat me with them he's already planning his tactics plus I'm not allowed the two headed goblin guzzling giant anymore which is fair. We do have several other giants and trolls, I really should build them... Pirate goblins next, I think.

In exciting news, my Flying Frog order has finally shipped! That's the 7 card pack expansions I don't own for SoB plus Flesh Drones, Auto-Turrets, Sand Crabs (woo! more crabs!), Wasteland Heavy weapon teams, and an extra set of peril dice (to stop the kids arguing over them). If it gets here in the next month, that'll be a lovely early birthday present. Of course, now I regret not getting the feudal japan card packs as well
