I just realized how close Kingdom Con is and how incredibly unrealistic my desire to only play fully painted models all weekend long whether in the tournies or iron arena. Of course, I also enjoy tilting at windmills so I am hoping for some cheering and cajoling from the fine and friendly folks on the internet. 

First up, something nice that I just finished:

I plan on doing battle damage on all of my jacks after everything is painted. At this point I have decided to just get things to what I consider a basecoat level and then move on – after all, a quickly and cleanly painted model, even if rather basically done, still looks a thousand times better than an unpainted/only primed one. At least that is the beautiful lie I am telling myself.

My current checklist of the things I would like to have done in time for the con is (in roughly the order I want to get them done):

Full Kayazy Assassins with UA
Kayazy Eliminators
2 Vanguard light jacks
Koldun Lord
Full battle mechaniks with UA
Spriggan
Drago
Eyriss2
Ayanna and Holt
Gorman DiWulff
Irusk2
Butcher2
Full Doomreavers w/ UA
Demolisher
Full Uhlans

So yeah, we will see how far down the list I can get and I will try and remember to update things as I do.

Currently on the table is Bad Santa (koldun lord) about halfway done.

My friend snapped a couple of shots with his iphone at the game last night and they are much higher quality.

And I think we all know how this ended…

I finished up Zerkova and am pretty happy with her.  I might go back and touch up one of the eyes (the real one), but overall she is done.  I didn’t realize until I started painting her that the sword I got was miscast – but it looks cool to me so I am not too worried.  I’ll try and get better pics at some point, but was just pretty stoked so wanted to post her.

As mentioned last month I doing the Muse on Minis play it painted 2013 challenge.  Last month I posted by pledge and now here is a finished version –

My pledge for February is Zerkova and a full manowar unit.

I’d like to take some better pics but all I am using right now is my phone, so, sorry.

This is just the link to my post on the MoM forum post so I can link back to it when I post the finished items.

This was a busy week so I kind of copped out just to make sure I got a model done and painted up a whelp. I use them in most lists anyway.

Besides, those trollkin whelps always look like they are having a whole lot of fun for guys about to be eaten like popcorn.
