The journey took a while but I finally have my Test of Honour Ronin complete. Ironically, I’ve had my bandits for much longer but the ronin seemed easier, and therefore less intimidating, to paint up.

With trees and rocks and walls and more complete, I moved on to finishing up my target scenario’s bits. This meant a rather easy paint run of the figures needed. I really cheated on this goal as what really interested me out of all the scenario options in a sea of expansions and content was something from the smallest set: the Ars Nova expansion.
With my latest Frostgrave minions complete, I turned to another project that will surely dog me for a long time to come: Time of Legends: Joan of Arc. There is an overwhelming amount of content to sift through, sort, and prepare for a game and I’d like to have some of it pimped out. The game is so immersive that painted components really bring it all home.
This week hasn’t been an exciting week as I’ve been toiling with the starts of some projects that mainly include a lot of priming with the airbrush. I’ve really hit my stride with airbrush priming as my process is down to where it is easy and quick without the hassle of needing the weather or temperature to cooperate. The smells are also nicely cut down as well.
Like every year, I think I’ll have time during the show to update things but that never happens. The convention is just too busy and entertaining to stop and post so as I settle back into to post-Con life, I get the energy to recapture the magic before too much of the memories fade. Because my photos are in order, it’s easiest to just go through things each day.
After a week hiatus with the family, I’m back with a quick comparison of some Joan of Arc terrain. There is a ton of content in that game and since I want to start with the terrain (like most of my projects*), I took a look at the many trees that come in the base set.
*well technically I started off Joan of Arc with my Dragon
Switching gears once again, I jumped over to Joan of Arc to mess with the biggest “miniature” I’ve ever owned, the legendary Dragon. This mini almost single-handedly sold me on the game before I had a chance to play it, as I imagine it did for many other folks. I basically saw it in the display case at Gen Con, turned around immediately and ran off to find my friend. I then hauled him over to look at it as well and we switched up a lot of our plans to make sure we demoed the game.
Having the dragon mini in hand, it is quite an amazing piece and equally challenging to prep.
