Age of Sigmar: Gloomspite Gitz – Endless Spells: Scuttletide

Age of Sigmar: Gloomspite Gitz - Endless Spells: Scuttletide

Another of the Endless Spells that has been sitting, half-done with some paint on it for an Endless amount of time today – the “Scuttletide” from the Gloomspite Gitz (or Night Goblins to you and me). As with the other endless spells I’ve finished recently, this one was started some significant amount of time ago, got delayed for whatever reason (most likely I got distracted and enthusiastic about some other thing – then shoved out of the way, put into a tub and then forgotten for several years

I went with a fairly bright scheme for the spiders here because I live with an arachaphobe, so they need to be unrealistic enough so that they can be on the table with Marouda playing a game. I mean, I’m not especially fond of the creepy little bastards myself, so this works as a game piece. I also dulled down the smaller ones with a few extra layers of wash because the whole piece was just a mess of visual noise, and now the larger ones do at least stand out a little. I also painted fake shadows on the undersides of their legs so that they look a litle more like legs as opposed to walls of plastic.

I didn’t have any painted goblin shamans handy for the size comparison pic (they’re all put away in a case somewhere), so you get a Savage Boyz Shaman instead!

 

Zombicide 1st Edition, Season 3: Barricades

Zombicide 1st Edition, Season 3: 3D Pack Barricades

Just a quickie today. We’re completely into September’s models now, and so I’ve got a couple of pieces that I started several years ago, dug out (ok, found part-painted in a tub and decided to finish) for Dave Stone’s annual Season of Scenery challenge, didn’t get done in time, though now I’ve completed them and can get them the hell out of here and into the War Room. Hopefully I’ll get a whole bunch of other stuff I started/found done as well in the next few weeks and clear some space to start newer projects and models.

They’re pretty simple, small pieces, though they are actually pretty nice. They’d work well enough in any modern or post-apoc setting from Crisis Protocol to Zona Alfa. They are a little small, as noted – but they’re made to fit a certain sized space on a boardgame tile, so I certainly can’t complain there. They came in a pack filled with a whole bunch of 3D doors that open and close – the sort of thing that works well as a game aid but are completely uninteresting as things to paint. I used a little touch of the Dirty Down Rust effect on them here and there as well to try out – I’ll be going harder with it in some later pieces of terrain.

I’ll get August’s round-up done in a week or so. Busy, tired and need to do a bunch of cleaning up before I can get to clearing the desk once again.
