Now that I have the Frostgrave warband done, time to tie up some loose ends on projects already started and planned:
WWII British Paratroops (a platoon plus support – started, but a way to go yet [including the <shudder> camo smocks])
Few odds and ends for Blood Bowl
Mordheim Sisters of Sigmar (about 80% done – just need to do the metallics and basing)
Fill-in figs for a Necromunda group (3-4 figs to round out an Cawdor group that I inherited from Tim B.)
On top of that, I did start putting together a funky little warband for Songs of Blades and Heroes using mostly OOP/LE Games Workshop Warriors of Chaos personalities, when it looked like that was what Tim was going to run for his weekend tourney:
There are some real chestnuts in that group (not all pictured). I have all the LE Games Day WoC figs, including the sorcerer, plus Harry the Hammer (thanks, Dave!) and a few other specials.
And… that new GW Deathwatch/Genestealer Cult Overkill box should be arriving on my doorstep later today.
Oh, and the Conan kickstarter could be here anytime.
I am a fan of the “His Dark Materials” books by Philip Pullman, and ever since I read them I’ve wanted to get my hands on a miniature of Iorek Byrnison the panserbjørn.
I’d picked up a Copplestone Castings 28mm polar bear ages ago, with the plan to add armour using greenstuff but, since I’ve got very little experience sculpting, I wasn’t really that confident that I’d be able to do a very good job.
Four sections of 28mm WWII Brit Airborne plus HQ, support weapons, and various add-ons (about 60 figures total)
Two 28mm ancients warbands for Ganesha Games Song of Shadows and Dust which are about 10-14 figures per warband
The Brit Airborne are in anticipation of games mainly using the Bolt Action rules, which is likely to be the next big thing for some of the Warpegs lads once they wind up their ongoing 40k escalation league.
The Song of Shadows and Dust warbands are for a tournament that my son and I are planning to attend, put on by my friend Tim B. in Saskatoon (see the link in the sidebar for his excellent blog), so of the two it’s got the most strict deadline. I’ve started playing around with the composition and have ordered a few models to supplement figs I already had on hand.
Also in the hopper are:
Finishing up a Sisters of Sigmar Mordheim warband (about 80% done)
Putting the final touches on a human Blood Bowl team (about 95% done)
Starting a small group of superhero figures (mostly Crossover Miniatures) that may or may not resemble those avenging types from a blockbuster movie of a couple of years ago.
