I mentioned previously looking for scenic bases, partly for the Scottish Masters; but also for myself. I’ve just placed an order with Bases4War, for some bases for the Scottish Masters.
I had contacted Ste about helping with the Scottish Masters, he kindly offered a 20% discount on anything in the store. Rather than give one player the 20%, I’ve ordered a selection of the bases; with some extras to be given away as spot prizes throughout the day.
With Gen Con over, we should (hopefully) get word back on the logo design; so we can get the last pieces of this sorted.
During a quiet moment from painting, I started looking for scenic bases; as these seem to have exploded onto the modellers world with full force. Micro Art Studio is a small Polish manufacturer, who has some amazing bases and scenery.
Designed with most game systems in mind, there is some focus on items specifically for Infinity. For WM/H players though, there are all the usual sizes and some 120mm bases; which is what caught my attention.
I got an email this morning from Kacper, the designer and owner of Micro Art Studios; generously contributing some items for the Scottish Masters. He will be sending some items over shortly, so from all the Scottish Masters team; thank you.
Despite not feeling the urge to paint this month, I did have fun painting the first of the Impact Miniatures! Chibi Dungeon Adventurers models. Naturally, I had to start with the one that my wife loved most – the ‘Wizard’. Any similarity, to a character from an 80’s cartoon; is purely coincidental.
Last month I mentioned a delivery, which I had been expecting for a while. Thankfully it arrived a few days before I headed to the Nationals, so it gave me time to clean them up in the hotel.
Gamers of a certain age, will recognise the similarities with a children’s cartoon from the 1980’s. So to get the chance to pledge to a Kickstarter with models that looked similar to those characters; was just a must have.
The wizard model at the back will be my Painting Oath pledge for July, though I will hopefully be painting them all this month. I would like to add a special thank you to the guys at Impact Miniatures, who were very helpful and efficient; when a problem arose with the delivery. Now I’m off you watch the boxset of said cartoon, which my loving wife bought me several years ago (she says I look like Presto).
With luck next week will bring with it, not only the UK Nationals; but also something in the post. I’ve been looking forward to this arriving for a long while now, as it takes me back to my childhood.
As it will hopefully arrive in time for July, I’ll be using them as my Painting Oath for that month. So watch this space from what delights I will be painting soon, for now I’m going to go get the boxset to listen to as I paint.
