The plan for today’s Painting Mondays was to sort the latest shipment. We received our allocation of Infinity’s Red Veil and Warlord Games’ Konflikt 47, so I planned to get the shop sorted. This was the general plan. Also, with everyone not being in at 8pm, I pretty much decided on not painting.
However, arriving almost 40 mins later, our esteemed “Best Painter” arrived and with that, all hopes of sorting the shop, gone. (If you’re a regular you’d know almost anything will side track the “sorting of the shop”)
Having not planned to paint, I had to now decide on what I should be painting. My options were
- Mantic’s Elves – These elves for Kings of War have always been something I wanted to paint. I always wondered why nobody seemed to paint them nice enough to play. I have also been talking about this one for quite a while
- Infinity’s Demo Set – I need to get these painted up. There was no love for Infinity today however.
- I was thinking to do a Battletech figure, the guys at the shop will be doing a Classic Battletech game in the coming months and I figured, I want in. Which one tho….
- Maybe something from Spartan Games…..
I finally decided to pull out a Privateer Press Iron Kingdom’s figure.
Hugo Lobanov – Khadoran Arcane Mechanik
This range was part of the first Privateer Press push to introduce their line to world of miniatures. These minis did quite well at the shop for the figure collector and we sold quite a few. However, some were left on the shelf for the past decade or so.
This was tonight’s project. Project start 9:34pm.
The mini was given a primer of AP Skeleton Bone and then a directional spray of AP Matt White Spray. This helps.
These are the paints I used for this figure.
