Painting Roundup (Nov 2021)

December 02, 2021

With the release of the new edition of Kill Team, I’ve fallen back into the miniatures hobby. With a week away with a bunch of gaming buddies coming up too soon after Kill Team was released to get anything painted, I cast my eye over the compendium that showed up in a review and picked out a legal team that I thought I’d have fun painting.

Ignoring the advice to avoid painting anything in yellow, I dived into painting up a T’au kill team with a unit of pathfinders and a unit of stealth suits.

A few weeks later, having enjoyed the games I got in, I decided to pick up a second team so I could lend them to opponents without a force of their own. I settled on the Kroot with a view to combining the two forces for a game of 40K at some point in the future. I have a video of the full squad over on YouTube.

While I have some more T’au to go back to later, I’m taking a bit of a break from them to vary what I’m painting by attacking my pile of shame. I backed Mantic’s Dungeon Saga on Kickstarter way back in 2014 and I’ve been selecting a few items from my box of shame that I thought I could pick off quickly.

The dragon came from the same bit of the box but I didn’t think it would be quite so quick. I’ve generally avoided large models in the past so I thought I’d try one I wasn’t hugely invested in so I could experiment with new techniques. I’m pretty happy with the result, although there are plenty of things I think I could have done better.

I tend to post models as I finish them on my Instagram account, but I’ll try to keep the blog updated with monthly collections.
