Guslado Goes to GenCon 50: Day 1

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!

What have you been working on?

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.

What have you been working on?

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.

What have you been working on?

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.

What have you been working on?

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 »
