#ToMB month 1 part 1 The Feng Conundrum

So the decision was made and the models pulled from the far reaches of my ‘to do’ cupboard and placed upon my painting train.
Who do we have? Well Mei feng herself followed by Kang 3 rail workers, Emberling and 6 spiders which I have decided to run as 1 swarm and 3 little scamps.
I have put together the bases, well more precisely ripped them off their bases and then have fancied them up with a very original and inspiring industrial rail working setting.

They have had a lick of paint, and have begun my 5 process paint scheme . . . which is
Under coat, base colour including detail, wash, dry brush and or high light. I know, very impressive set of ‘skills’ there. Unfortunately I am not talented with a brush and the difference between spending half an hour on a model and 10 hours is very little. At this point the Emberling is finished, bar painting the base and the rest of the crew are going through the base coat stage.

Game wise, haven’t even touched her yet although I may try her out this weekend (08/03/14) I’ve read through her rules and am still not convinced, but table time has a way of putting things into perspective.
Kang on the other hand looks pretty meaty, rail workers look fairly solid for 5 stones. Emberling looks like a useful anchor for Mei to bounce off. Spiders? Well they are always useful.

 I hope to get pics up at some point, but with just a shitty camera phone and a technical ability on par with a cave man this maybe a more laborious task that I originally anticipated.

Anyway I shall sign off and hopefully the next update will include pictures and tactical brilliance . . . .

  1. I feel in the same boat with the painting skills. I often use so many of the great photos floating around the internet as motivation to at least paint my models. I do learn and get ideas from them even if I just put my own twist on it with my skill level. I tend to share what I can on the net. With that being said, if you can figure out how to share some pics with your camera phone anything can help motivate the rest of us! ;)
