Week 36 - Elven Progress Report #4

So there was no progress this week. I have trimmed up the two drakons and the three bolt throwers but have not assembled them yet. As it turns out Knightwolf isn't able to make it to the tournament any more and neither am I. We both have other inescapable commitments that have arisen, leaving the last months efforts unfulfilled. The positive here is that I got a lot of things done in that month and am quite close to having all the elves assembled, which is nice. This lets me go back to my main goals at any rate.

So as for the goals, here is where I am up to:
Build and paint a full Malifaux crew - I have two crews to choose from for ease of completion, Ramos or Kirai. Kirai's crew needs a few models assembled and based before they can be painted. Ramos's crew needs the same (but more fiddly) and they all need painting. I'm split on which crew to do, I'm not fond of Ramos playstyle but don't have the 2E cards for Kirai...

Finish all of the Dreadball teams and MVPs - I am ready to brush off the paint from the four stripped MVPs, who will need a good rinse and then get a quick paint job before dipping. Then I have a set of humans and robots teams to paint more thoroughly.

Finish painting an Infinity group - I still have to finish off the last test model to decide which colour scheme to use for my Combined Army. From there I have one more model to assemble before I apply the scheme to the remaining models. Alternatively there are the Nomads in Operation: Icestorm, which I plan on doing in the stock red.

Make some headway on my Warpath fluff - The least specific of my goals, I have a document with bullet points on what I would like to cover. The next step is to expand on those points and form a bit of a narrative (in a bureaucratic tone) before drawing up a background to make the story look and feel suitably sci-fi rather than just a Wikipedia entry.

I recently sold my Blindwater, which gives me some funds to make more progress on my business prototypes. I also intend to make another terrain table with the proceeds, once I narrow down what system and concept I want to build.
