I've been painting epic for less than 2 years now and I've been thinking a lot about making a table since our first lockdown, wondering what sort of vibe I wanted for it or not.
I got a few shanties printed by a good friend and from his feedback, the pre-supported well designed files made it a really easy fool proof job to print (so got him to print a load more of them, the sweet angel).
The level of detail is just right, it's neat and characterful, extremely painter friendly and although scale is a problem you can easily overcome with 3D printed models, I find they scale just right how they come.
I did a really quick painting job on those, trying not to lose myself in the details and trying to get to the point. The aim was to try and see if the methods used to paint my 28mm shanties could suit the 6mm ones and the answer is yes as far as I'm concerned. The basic set here was a test piece so I know I can make the others work now. There will be variations and a bit of conversion too but honestly these were fun and that's a big bonus for terrain where volume might make it too big of a chore.
Now of course as soon as the asian city blocks were released, I also knew they were an absolute must (actually everything that's been released so far is so expect me to paint a good portion of the catalogue !)
As much as I like the adeptus titanicus scenery with the gothic vibe I find those (despite the smaller size) to have a more organic look. I'll have to plan things on how I want to field them, either individually (unlikely) or as big blocks (unlikely as well) or maybe into sub groups I can join...
I also have one very exciting project for a good load of those but that's super secret stuff for now !
Anyway, I reckon you've probably guessed how excited and enthusiastic I am about those models and the fantastic solutions provided, it's always such a pleasure to discover great producers (although they're clearly not newbies ^^).
