This Week in Hobby – 5.13.17

I’ve been busy with work this past week. But I did finish up a few more Dark-Age Outcasts. 

These wasteland warriors went really quickly.  I’m satisfied with how they came out – and they fit in well with the rest of the force. 

I also got Finn Deadeye – a bounty hunter sniper done. She will be a nice addition to the Outcasts as well. 

Lastly, I got the Outcast Fixer completed … he can heal as well as prevent some malfunctions near him. Which is always nice in darkage. 

I have three minis left to do – to complete my Outcasts faction. After that I’m hoping to get some terrain projects finalized – so I can start to plan out some demo games. 



This Week in Hobby – 4.25.17

Well it’s spring and I’m really feeling the creative juices flowing. I’ve gotten out for disc golf a couple times which is nice. I’m enjoying the new gig and pushing my knowledge into new things.   It’s a good springlike feeling all around. 
Hobby desk …  

I’ve finished Mongo. He was really fun to do.  And he will make a great centerpiece for the Outcasts. 

I also finished up the Outcasts Bully.  I kept him simple … I got him nearly completed in an hour. But I ended up finishing him over the weekend as well. 

I also finished these two Scuts. I did them both at the same time and had them share mostly the same palette. 

The rest of the Outcasts are coming along nicely. I’ll be banging through another 2-3 this week for sure. 


What’s Going On – 4.17.17

Well it’s been busy for me the past few weeks. I gave notice with my job of 9 ½ years and started a new job last week. Same industry (label printing / prepress).  It’s hard to move on … missing friends that I’ve made over the years … as well as that “comfort zone” of knowing your job inside and out. But there is also the need to broaden my horizons… and, frankly, knowing what is best for me. The old place wasn’t helping me grow – nor was it good for my health. 
The new job has me busy with training and learning how things work within the new surroundings and procedures. In a couple weeks I’ll get my normal hours back. Which means I’ll have my normal time at the hobby table again. 

Over the last few weekends I did get a few gaming things done.  I dug into the Warden – for DarkAge and got him (& his captive) completed. 

Here is the final with grass added …

I have also been plugging away at Mongo … he’s just been taking me longer. 

I’m getting closer to finishing him … maybe I’ll get some more time this week.
