Guslado Goes to GenCon 50: Day 1

Posted: August 18, 2017 in GenCon 50

The lead up to GenCon this year was rather busy for me, so I didn’t have a whole lot of time to prep up these posts in advance, but I did want to make sure I shared this all with you as I have done for the past few years.

After far too long without posting an update here, I am back in action!!! I haven’t been able to do much hobbying until recently due to some time consuming home renovations which put my hobby room out of commission and then a long vacation up to Alaska, but now I’m back and firing on all cylinders! This is a quick look at what I’ve been working on since I got my hobby room back.

I have several models here which are very nearly finished, so keep your eyes peeled for some photos of finished miniatures in the next few days. Also, I’m making my annual pilgrimage up the GenCon next week and once again I’ll be posting my Guslado Goes to GenCon series!

Wednesday is upon us, so it’s time to share what’s been on your table this week–once again it’s Work in Progress Wednesday!

I started hitting some details on Bansuva to get him a little bit closer to the table; he still needs a good deal of work, but I like the direction he’s headed in. I’m trying out a new formula for painting fire and I’m digging how it looks after the first couple of steps, I can’t wait to see how this will look with a little more work on it.

I was also looking for a way to make small discs which fit exactly inside the lip of a round lipped base so that I can make a few less elaborate marble bases to go along with Sandeep and friends. I found that one of the dropper bottles I use is the perfect size to basically make a cookie cutter that makes discs that will fit inside a 30mm round lipped base. Greenstuff turned out to be too sticky to get a good clean cut, so I picked up some Super Sculpey to try out and I was quite happy with the end result. While I was at the art store I also saw some cool press molds designed for polymer clays, so I get one with a bunch of faces on it that I think will look really cool for basing.

Hey all! Just a quick Work in Progress Wednesday post for this week as I’ve been crazy busy and haven’t had time to get in as much hobbying as I would have liked to. I made some great progress on the marble bases for Sandeep and Bansuva. I also built some Steam Arachnids I’ve had sitting in my hobby closet for a while since I’ve been playing a fair amount of Ramos lately and haven’t had enough. Additionally, I built Nathaniel Garro and Tylos Rubio from 30k that I’ll be painting as a commission.

Over the weekend I ran a Malifaux tournament for the first time; I had twelve people show up to play. Everyone had a great time and are looking forward to the next even at Dragon’s Lair. All in all a busy, but successful week.

In 2017 a crack Malifaux unit was sent to my painting table by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security figure case to the Malifaux underground. Today, still wanted by the Guild, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire: The Freikorps.

The middle of the week is here once again, this means that it is time to celebrate being half way to the weekend by sharing what’s been on your hobby table–it’s Work in Progress Wednesday!!!

This week I’ve been focused on trying to master a new technique: creating a marble effect on bases. I found a cool tutorial on making marble bases a while back and modified the method to get the look that I wanted. This involved adding in a few more steps and getting some special sealant, but I’m really happy with how they are looking so far. This was my first time playing around with Ghost Tints from Badger and I’m impressed with the cool effect I was able to get with them; I will definitely be coming up with other cool uses for them in the future.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No wait, it’s coming right for us and it’s got claws!!! Read the rest of this entry »

It’s Wednesday, so hopefully by now you know what that means–it’s Work in Progress Wednesday!

This week I’ve been busy working on some midterm projects for my game design studies, so I haven’t had a ton of time to paint, but I did manage to I finished off the Sigismund commission I’d been working on and managed to finish some other models I’ll be posting some photos of later in the week.  The small amount of other painting I completed was on the Von Schill crew I’ve been doing as a commission project; I’ve been a mercenary brush painting mercenaries. Once those are done, I’ll have a couple of other small commission jobs to handle and then I’ll be able to start taking more commission jobs. If you’re interested in commission work, I’ll be posting more info once the decks have been cleared and my brush is once again available for hire.

Behold Sigismund, First Captain of the Imperial Fists!

Once again Wednesday is upon us, which means it’s time for all good hobbyists to show off what’s been on their painting table this week–it’s Work in Progress Wednesday!!!

On my table this week I have a handful of models that are nearing completion–the Sigismund commission is down to final detailing and assembly, the Von Schill crew just needs a few more details, and the Wind Gamin just have final clean-up and basing left. I should actually be able to post some photos of newly finished miniatures soon!

I have been quite busy of late as I recently made the decision to leave my job to return to school to study game design and thus I’ve been rather busy with school work lately. As I am nearing the middle of the semester I feel like I’m finally settling into a routine, so hopefully that means I’ll be able to share more finished projects with you all soon. Also, I will be able to start making those that I promised a few months back. Keep your eyes peeled for some cool stuff headed your way soon!
