    I love this so much, especially the last paragraph.
    Miniatures painted in 2015: 21

    Yes, she's got firm opinions on matters and I can respect that! She did query very early that it was strange all the models with faces not helmets were boys. I have a bunch of female miniatures sat in a drawer ready for her to paint when she's feeling more confident in her abilities too, and I know she'll love them.

    When my larger, more complex painting projects are going a little slower than desired, I've been dipping back into my Space Wolves box* just to get something completed quickly. These won't be winning awards any time soon but it's nice to shift another model out the backlog and onto the table.




    * Okay, it's a massive drawer of Space Wolves. Honestly, I swear they're multiplying when I'm not paying attention.

    Totally agree! That last paragraph about what your daughter thinks - awesome! And awesome on you for encouraging her!
    Overly obsessed with: Perry Samurai, Red Box Games Dwarves, Ral Partha, and Dragons.

    Cheers! While she enjoys painting, I'll continue to support her, and when her attention swaps to another hobby, I'll support that too. If kids don't try things and get encouragement - where's the fun and adventure?

    Anyway, back to the miniatures. A mere 15 months after completing his Ogre counterpart, I've wrapped the second of the two sportscasters from Willy Miniatures, the Vampire sportscaster. One small step for painting, one giant step to wrapping up another project.




    I don't like the face on this sculpt, it feels wrong. He should be leering, and the mouth feels a little too big. It's beyond my skill to make it look other than a big happy grin, but there we have it. I did enjoy painting the leather coat, it's another approach to leather in constrast to my other recent projects.

    Here's a shot of the pair of them together.



    Eagle eyed viewers will notice I've gone back and updated Bob Bifford the Ogre's scarf to match Jim Johnson the Vampire's scarf. Plans are afoot to build a nice sideboard for my Guild Ball games to feature crowd and commentators, but that's way down the list of projects at the moment.

    I feel my something-better-than-tabletop painting has come on in the 16 months between them. Especially in trying to build textures. Still a long way to go but it's nice to feel I've progressed.
