Hobby Scorecard Update 2012

A bit of housekeeping today.  It's time to update my hobby scorecard over on the left.  August is kind of late in the year to be updating something from 2012 but better late than never.

Last year wasn't super productive.  I think for 2013 I have already exceeded last year's tally.  I chalk the lack of activity up to changing jobs and active house remodeling. I really need to make time to practice my craft here.

The other thing that I'll mention is that all the models painted below were actually painted by the commission painting studio Blue Table Painting. I've done quite a few projects with them and I've been very pleased with the results.  I'll write up a longer review soon and post more pictures of their fantastic work.

Doom Reavers Finished

My unit of Doom Reavers is now complete.  This marks the tipping point for the 15 point starter army I detailed here.  At this point I have 7 out of 13 models painted.

The blue and leather theme that I am using is somewhat reminiscent of the traditional Cygnar paint scheme.  I think, though, that the blue against the bone and leather looks quite good from a tabletop view.  No reason the spark addicts should have a monopoly on good looks.

These guys are going to look smashing leading the charge ahead of Sorcha and her Devastator. The conundrum now is which of my remaining three units get paint next.
