Ever opened a copy of one of the realm of chaos books when you were ten? Ever tried to own each and everyone of the Jes Goodwin chaos champion? Ever spent days lurking on ebay for a complete Kaleb Dark or chaos toilets?
You're at home here.
We had plenty of models to paint for this game as well as for the Frostgrave campaign we would have later that week.
But as things happen, Nicola didn't make it in the final cast. A couple of Nipponese got lucky instead and while I was being my annoying self from the couch in Paul's launge sipping my glass of wine, my esteemed colleague was sweating blood to get his models done.
He left up Nicola aside (a good move really) and managed to get 3 others models nailed in the evening instead.
Due to my link with the very reason Nicola was a thing in the first place, I ended up with a half finished space female cashier...
Now the funny thing is that despite knowing and enjoying Paul's work for a long time know, I still have to admit I just don't pain the same way. It's just not the same process. with the bases done for all parts I was struggling with how to continue. Even just the choice of colours to use was a problem.
Last night, it just became unbearable to have this one still unfinished so I decided to man up and do what I had promised to do : Get those half finished model out of my table.
In the end the model is OK although I know it isn't close to what Paul would have achieved... I lust adit I also too shorcuts after struggling with the white jacket.
Here's the models as they were intended for the game though :
Jimmy Bennett, Nicola and the space hobo monk
While I was at it, I also took a shot at Nicola with her stunt double for the game. I have no idea how I'm going to use a space female cashier in the future but I'm no too worried though...
There's more to come this week if time and weather allow it !
