This week I didn’t get much done as far as the hobby goes. I had planned to work on the NMM on the Mocking Beast that I first started some time ago, but I found the process much more challenging than expected.
Month: September 2014
This week I worked on another mini suggested by David at caffeineforge.com as part of their regular Monday Miniatures series. I wasn’t really taken by their next scheduled mini (Deenah), but I liked the look of Anval. I thought all of that plate armour would be another good chance to work on my NMM technique.
Just a quick one to show off the first finished NOVA Corps mini. I decided that if I was going to get anything done worth posting this week I’d need to just work on a single NOVA Corps mini so I decided to use this one as a prototype. There’s not much too him, but I’m happy enough that I will use the same colours on the other troops too. He’s just got some edge highlighting as well as an orangey visor and green pipes which were both only about 3 colours in the end.
This week I decided to take a break from my NOVA Corps troops and participate in the Monday Miniatures project that runs over at caffeineforge.com. The guy there nominates one (or occasionally more) of the minis from the original Reaper Bones collection per week and anyone who is interested can paint up the mini and send him a photo. He then posts all the submissions. It’s his way of motivating people to regularly paint their Bones minis. I’ve never participated before, but this week’s mini seemed like one that I could actually get done in a week, so I gave it a try.
