August found me reconnecting with hobby time, although much of the month was spent building terrain rather than painting figures: creating bamboo forests, paddy fields and a few hills….
At the start of the month I painted a number of 15mm miniatures for my Print-n-play version of Full Moon Jacket: 30 Werewolves (from Blue Moon) and 9 Marines. These are boardgame playing pieces, so the paint jobs were fairly rudimentary, but they still count in my book!
However, the end of the month saw me return to painting 28mm scale, with my first six gang members for Gangs of Rome.
It was completely unplanned, but I ended up purchasing the Kickstarter editon of Star Saga from Mantic Games whilst visiting The Other Partizan show.
This edition includes some extra bonus figures – I am adding them to the painting list as I fully intend to paint these for use with both this game and Deadzone.
Edit – I forgot three boxes of miniatures that I bought for Test of Honour at the start of the month: Bandits & Monks from North Star and Onna-Bugeisha from Warlord Games.
