1 and 2 completed the Colony 87 set.
3 and 4 were a boy and his dog.
5-8 were technicians and robots.
9-11 brought a cult leader, his bodyguard, and his servibot.
12-14 were a family of nomads.
15 was a Grox herder.
16-19: A pair of cult sisters and
two monks from a competing sect.
Together these were from Blind Beggar's Me and My Shadow Kickstarter.
To say that this was not my best year ever is a bit of an understatement. I accomplished literally none of my goals. My output was pretty much a record low. About all I can say is let's make 2019 better! I suppose it's statistically unlikely there will be quite so many distractions competing for my attention. And there's some big things well into the late stages of "the works."
(Mysterious dimly lit scene.)
With that teaser in hand I shall bid you adieu for present. Thank you, as always, for reading along.
And Happy New Year from all of us on the Rim.
Handsome figures and beautiful scenery in this productive year!ReplyDelete
The scenery is all old, but I'm quite pleased you it nonetheless. That means quite a bit coming from you. And I'm very glad you like the new figures. Thank you. :)Delete
Looking forward to seeing more blog adventures. Sorry to hear (and see!) 2018 was a bit of a bust for you. The nice part is that it sets a pretty low bar for an improved year =)ReplyDelete
Indeed it does! (A point I've not failed to notice, I assure you. Production has been trending down a while now. I VERY much hope this forebodes a change of direction.) Anyway, glad you're looking forward to new posts. I've got several bits of old business loaded up, so I'll have to clear them before I can bring the new business to bear, but that's a simple enough operation via the muzzle. New business will follow closely after. Big business! Enterprising business! Freelance transportation specialists taking care of your high-value cargo needs. (No job too hot, no destination too remote.)Delete
Oh ho! A teaser of future plans! Lovely. I'm sure that high value courier jobs are total snooze fests, especially to those back water frontier towns. What could possible go wrong?Delete
Delicious isn't it? That herd of grox you're being paid extra to expedite is entirely legit, of course. Ignore the fresh pink scar tissue on each flank. And don't worry about the pre-clearance regs to get past quarantine on Loughborough. That's all taken care of. I'm sure you'll never find an uncharted asteroid field where a planet should be, or get chased by chased by cruisers, or realize the trainload of medicine was actually going to a city suffering from plague. All complete sleepwalks. That's why the money is so good! ;-)Delete
Cool update, glad to see you're still beavering away. Looking forward to more stuff in 2019!ReplyDelete
Thank you. The air got cold. I woke up. Sort of the reverse of normal hibernation, I guess. Aestiation? Sleeping through the summer? I'll try to stay awake a little longer this year. ;-)Delete
That looks like a decent output to me. Good luck for 2019 :)ReplyDelete
It felt bad to me as nearly all of it was painted inside the first two months of the year. And after that . . . crickets. My brushes sat nearly entirely dry. I made a fitful start on a spaceship, which you will see later. (It's finally done to my satisfaction.) I might possibly have painted the last four miniatures in March, or maybe even April. But really, most of the year I did nothing at all model related. It was a good couple of months. I hope to avoid that fate this year. Maybe.Delete
Anyway . . . thank you. I'm glad it doesn't seem like a complete flop from outside, anyway. :)Delete
You've actually been pretty productive over the year. Those paint jobs look cool too man! Onwards into 2019 with moaaarrrrrr!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Moar is coming, I assure you. ;-) There is, of course, only one way I can say that with certainty. And for the record, you inspired the next build at least in part with a certain giant inquisitorial toy rocket thing. (But my attempt at lighting it failed, sadly. Maybe I'll go back and try again. Maybe.)Delete
Howdy, Mr. C. Got outta Tartarus cell block H, huh? Nice work while you were inside. "specially like the garage scene: nice photography = shadows and bright light + cool mech posing as a giant oil can with attached lug and claw wrench.ReplyDelete
I do like that little oil can droid with the lug-wrench eyestalk. And I positively love the mechs working with him. Yep. Got out of the cell block for a little while. Good to trade in the old stink on a new one. Maybe have some fresh canned beans. :)Delete
Pamba beans and a Galarp of Nova Fire will stoke your mojo furnace!Delete
Oh, now that sounds like a great idea. I think I have a smidge of Nova Fire left in the pantry. Saving it for a special occasion.Delete
