Stuff on the table - August 2017

Here's the starting point for August:
  • Oathsworn Miniatures 28mm Burrows and Badgers Toad Animist (2016) 
  • Oathsworn Miniatures 28mm Burrows and Badgers Badger Mercenary (2016) 
  • Battlefront Miniatures 15mm WW2 Japanese Hohei platoon (2016) 
  • Battlefront Miniatures 15mm WW2 USMC rifle platoon (2016) 
The Japanese Hohei platoon and USMC rifle just need grass and foliage added to be complete. And then it really is time to tackle the last of my Oathsworn minis, the Badger and Toad. They've been looking at me for far too long on the painting table. 

I've bought in to the Nickstarter for Dracula's America with the Dark Confederates bundle. That should come in August so I have a good incentive to try and clear the decks for that. I have loads of suitable Old West figures that I can use for this so almost feel that I'm ahead of the game which is an unusual place for me to be.

Stuff on the table - July 2017 UPDATE

Here's the update for July:
  • Oathsworn Miniatures 28mm Burrows and Badgers Toad Animist (2016) - no further progress
  • Oathsworn Miniatures 28mm Burrows and Badgers Badger Mercenary (2016) - no further progress
  • Battlefront Miniatures 15mm WW2 Japanese Hohei platoon (2016) - Bases painted and highlighted.
  • Battlefront Miniatures 15mm WW2 USMC rifle platoon (2016) - All figures painted and  varnished. Bases textured, painted and highlighted.
I made good progress with the WW2 Pacific project this month.

 

I took the USMC rifle platoon (above right)from primed to based and virtually complete. I also painted the Japanese Hohei platoon's bases (above left ). All that's needed to complete these two platoons is to add final highlights and then foliage and grass which I need to buy. And do two Japanese sniper teams which I managed to eke out of the Japanese pack. 

As you can see in the photo above I left an empty slot on six of the USMC bases. This enables me to add either a rifle man or BAR gunner as required. The BF pack provided options to add a BAR gunner per rifle team so I have a nice lot of spares. These figures have had their cast on bases textured and painting to fit in with the team bases. They also got an additional two coats of varnish as they'll be subjected to more handling.

Stuff on the table - July 2017

Here's the starting point for July:
  • Oathsworn Miniatures 28mm Burrows and Badgers Toad Animist (2016) 
  • Oathsworn Miniatures 28mm Burrows and Badgers Badger Mercenary (2016) 
  • Battlefront Miniatures 15mm WW2 Japanese Hohei platoon (2016) 
  • Battlefront Miniatures 15mm WW2 USMC rifle platoon (2016) 
I really hope to complete the USMC rifle platoon and finish off the bases for the Hohei platoon this month. After that I'll take a break from painting little men and try and make some progress with the Toad and Badger or do something different like tackle some of the 1/144th plane stockpile.
