The Summer Painting Queue
I guess I will start doing quarterly "painting queue" posts. The spring edition was pretty successful, I look back at that and think, "Hmm, I painted those x32 Star Grunt II guys, and the rest of those Vikings, not too shabby..." But I can't rest on my laurels, nope!
I've got tons o' DW posts already, you guys know what they look like by now. They're not going to paint themselves and the book is due out any time now. Time to get crackin'!
2. "Evil Ice Elves" Warband for Song of Blades and Heroes
I'm giving a shout out to my buddy Brian at Repple Depple here. He brought a box full of "freebies" to game night a while back, and many of those figs have found their way into the core of this warband. In SBH, if you've got quality troops, nine is probably more than enough. I'm going to paint them as a group, but then pick and choose according to my mood and have some options, such as a martial leader, or an arcane one.
3. Hordes of the Things, Orc Army
These guys aren't going away are they? It's a sizable Orc army, and really, shouldn't be too bad to whip into shape. I have so been dragging my feet on this one, ugh.
No surprises here. Unlike the HotT army though, these pulpsters have not been around very long whatsoever. They will be fun to paint up, but I have a sneaky suspicion that they'll be making a queue comeback later on this fall if you follow me.
