Next up on the finished units is a ‘re-imagining’ of my old Skaven Bloodbowl team, the Skavenby Literary Convention (I, II and III). I painted these models way back when I started playing with toy soldiers, even before I met Phil and got into historical miniature wargaming. This must have been 1996 or so, almost fifteen years ago.
The last bits have been painted yesterday and they’re in the varnishing pipeline at the moment (gloss first, then matt), so pictures will have to wait. This post is just to tally the painting points - I’m giving myself 2 points per figure on these, as I’ve gone full hog in three layer painting on them (though not competition quality, there’s too many uncorrected mistakes for that) and there’s a whole lot of fiddly detail on the figures (lots of straps, buttons, pointy bits and sometimes even pointy bits on the other pointy bits).
So at 14 figures — 6 linerats, 2 storm vermin, 1 thrower and 5 gutter runners (yes, that’s a lot of gutter runners, and should tell you something about my playing style with them), that’s 28 points.
Total for the month is 52. Next up is probably another unit of Romans, as the new Swedes from Musketeer have not arrived yet (have, in fact not even been shipped yet).
