To quote the Rolling Stones: "If you start me up, I'll never stop."
Truthfully, I totally forgot I even had a blog for my miniatures work. So, time to dust off the shelves and get to work!
Yes, I have started painting again. This time with the purpose of playing the games that a lot of the miniatures I currently have around the house are used in...
Currently on my shelves are Infinity, Wild West Exodus, Malifaux, Hordes and Heavy Gear Blitz along with plenty of player character type miniatures for D&D/Pathfinder. I'm awaiting my Kickstarter for Mantic's Warpath sometime soon, but the less said about Mantic at this moment the better.
To tell you the truth, I really like the so-called "starter sets" I am seeing for the skirmish level miniature games. They are a great way to get a feel for the game without investing a ton of cash and time into doing a large army.
In fact, I still have my eye on picking up the Wrath of Kings starter set hopefully this holiday season if I've got the cash. Some of the miniatures, to me, are very reminiscent of Rackham's Confrontation line, and should be an interesting challenge to paint. Guild Ball may be a possibility down the road, but that remains to be seen.
As much as I loathe and despise GW, I still hold out hope for a Mordheim revival someday...
Anyway, I'll be posting more here and linking it to the Jesterspeed Studios Facebook page as well.
