    Howdy, I'm Sigur and this is my first painting log...


    Howdy, this is Sigur from the future (June 13,2010) and due to the scope of this project log, I figured it would be a good idea to have an index so people wouldn't have to scan through all of these 70 pages

    ....now back to the beginning of things....


    For my latest comission, I just got the Battle for Skull Pass box to paint for my local indy retailer's shop window/test games/explaining the game etc.

    Within the next months (I assume that it will take me about two months to paint the miniatures from the box at max with having to manage other comissions, school, social life stuff, etc. too) i'll try to keep you guys updated including pictures and all. I know that this painting documentation's topic isn't the most exciting as I'm basically painting the minis "out-of-the-box". No conversions, nothing fancy, just plain old painting (the expected level is "pretty high TT standard" by the way). I still hope that you'll enjoy reading and commenting this log as much as I hope that it will encourage me to get the stuff painted faster as well as better.

    So, let's start right away - day 1:



    Got the box and started getting the first gobbos out of their sprue. I'm not sure if I'll be able to to start removing the mold lines (I'm already dreading this part of assembly) tonight as it's weekend so I might just get pissed and sharp blades + gobbos + alcohol would just lead to even more obstacles for the painting.

    I'll keep an eye on this... only one problem I can see so far (aside from the knives/alcohol/models issue): No picture of your desk. Just a little glimpse of part of it, including, as ever, the bits of the twin of my speaker system.

    Good luck with those mould lines then.

    @devolutionary: At least the Gobbos will be painted in GW's colour scheme, About the Dwarfs I have a bit more liberty. I'm thinking of either going for the old blue-metal-scheme the box suggests or something green.

    Re: Battle for Skull Pass Box - by sigur

    I'm painting the entire contents of BFSP myself at the moment, however I'm an extremely SLOW painter & have quite a lot of other things on at the mo so my time to spend painting is limited.

    Completely agree about asembling & cleaning up all the mini's it's a daunting task as there's just so many of them!

    Best of luck to you.
    One day I will finish painting for something... honest...

    Re: Battle for Skull Pass Box - by sigur

    @Paulus: Thanks!

    @Exo: Thanks for the suggestion and the upcoming buttkicking.

    Day 2:



    I removed the mold lines on twenty-eight Night Goblins and glued them to their bases which was not exactly a rollercoaster of intellect, emotions and fun but at least it's done now. So this leaves me with twelve Gobbo archers yet to clean up, then the first sprue is done. I'll post an overview of the models in the box, set up a to-do list and work out a schedule for assembling them.

    Things I noticed yet: The miniatures are not as bad as I thought judging from all these pictures on the internet. The 'Eavy Metal team's paintjobs kinda don't do justice to the miniatures I believe. I'm not into this supersmooth-looking painting style the GW is going for since the dawn of 7th edition. The Goblins seem to be in scale very nicely. I'm clearly looking forward to the new Goblin box. The troll still is terrible in my opinion though.

    Another small thing I noticed is about the bases. The cavlary bases for the spider riders have sculpted terrain on them (very simple though) and the 20mm bases are molded differently to how they're done normally. Judging from the "flash", they aren't done in sprues but as single parts with the connection to the sprue at the middle of the top of the bases. Just a little, weird observation.

    That's it for today I guess. Maybe I'll find the time to clean up those Gobbo archers too later tonight.

    Re: Battle for Skull Pass Box - by sigur

    I'm very excited to see the final Goblins.

    Some questions:

    - are the shields already stuck onto the minis, or do you have to glue them?
    - will you paint just the Goblins or the Dwarves too?
    - could you please take a photo of the Spider Rider's bases?

    Oh Sigur, you've set a foolish standard. I now fully expect to see MS Paint speech bubbles on every photograph you post.

    That was a productive day, by the looks. Now, let's see if you can make the sucky troll look good...

    Re: Battle for Skull Pass Box - by sigur

    Cheers, internet people!

    @^_^: Yes, the shields are already stuck to the miniatures. They are entirely one-piece models. The Dwarfs will also be painted, I just started with the Gobbos to clean up because I wanted to get the more annoying job done first. Pictures of the spider rider bases will follow shortly; with next day's update at the latest.

    @tehYorkiebarzorz: *bans* Well, I am chuffed indeed and I'll try to make them put a little sign next to the minis, saying who painted them (my vanity knows no end when it comes to miniature painting). Concerning the alcohol+blades thing, I really tried to remove some mold lines yesterday since I wasn't that drunk but got sleepy after a short while.

    @McMullet: Indeed, this foolishishness is already planned to become the standard since, as I mentioned earlier, the whole project isn't that exciting in itself so I'm trying to spice things up a bit.

    Day 3:



    After a long day, I finally got to post my update. In fact I had planned to have all miniatures cleaned up and assembled by now but a computer-connected incident thwarted my plans. I promised you to make up a to-do list so here we go:

    Goblin force:
    .) 20 Goblins with spears including full command - assembled, cleaned and primed
    .) 20 Goblins with spears including full command - assembled, cleaned and primed
    .) 20 Goblin archers includung full command - assembled, cleaned and primed
    .) 10 Spider Riders - still on sprue
    .) Goblin Shaman - cut off the sprue
    .) Goblin Boss with Squig - cut the parts off the sprue
    .) Troll - still on Sprue

    Dwarf Force:
    .) 12 Clan Warriors including full command - assembled, cleaned and primed
    .) 8 Miners including full command - assembled, cleaned and primed
    .) 10 Handgunners including full command - cut off the spue, started cleaning
    .) Dragonslayer - cut off the sprue
    .) Thain - cut the single parts off the sprue
    .) Cannon - crewmen cut off the sprue
    .) Pony (probably rending, aha-haha) - cut off the sprue

    Terrain pieces, markers, etc. - still on sprue

    It's good to know that I got the bigger part of the miniatures primed now. I'm a bit concerned about the spider riders though; last night I had a nightmare about them for no real reason. So let's see what the next day holds for me....

    @^_^: As promised, here's a picture of the sculpted bases that come with the box.

    Wow, that's some impressive progress! There really are a lot of models in that boz...

    About that plastic giant though... I hear it's a fine model. And, since it's a dogs of war choice, you can take one with any army! There's no reason not to get one, or maybe even more than one!

    I do like those bases though, they effectiveely save the trouble of adding sand AND flock, which is nice, since the sand usually ends up mostly covered anyway.

    Ouch! Note to self, read thread details before posting stupidly. Sorry Sigur.
