Hello and welcome to another update for the 3rd month of TOMB. If you have read my earlier posts you will know that I accepted a challenge put forth to the Malifaux community to paint $60 dollars of models in the first month, followed by $25 thereafter until you’ve bought all the Malifaux….or until your plastic habit required medical assistance….whichever comes first.
You may also know that I picked the Master of Puppets box set for Neverborn. On paper i’d not been impressed with the final 2 Neverborn masters to elude me (Collodi and Lucius) but I do like the Collodi models and everytime I think of him I sing Metallica’s Master of Puppets track…this is what’s known in the industry as win/win.
Having 9 models to paint in month 1 would be a challenge as my normal rate of painting is 1-2 models a month however I would give this my very best shot. Well, here I am on the 26th of the month and i’m spent. It’s been quite a tough challenge so far however having “broken the back” of it, i’m looking forward to painting just the 2 models next month…more on that to follow.
So, without further ado and no more gilding of the lily, here they are. I hope you like them and I’d welcome some feedback.
So, that’s me done for month 1. Okay, I have 5 days left to try and get the Brutal Effigy done. Maybe I will. Maybe i’ll roll him to next month which will then still only mean 2 models next month. My choice next month is Nekima who coming in at a whipping $25 means her and the effigy will bring me within $1 of my budgeted spend to date. In fact, I like that plan.
My next update is likely to be a battle report for Collodi at 35-40 stones against Zac again and let’s hope all this painting brings me a touch more fortune.
Until next time…..
