GiantsI finished most of the details on the Ultraforge Giant. All I need to do is a few final touch-ups and the base. I tried to keep the colors of the accessories (clothing, etc.) on this one simple, in contrast with the brighter look of the Marauder Giant, and what I am planning for the Warploque Giant.
I'm really sort of stuck on how to base this guy and the Marauder giant. I don't want to get too carried away with a lot of extras, or make it look too far off my usual bases. But I'm also concerned with it looking overly plain.
So what next?I've got a number of things on my to-do list. (Actually, I have a huge theoretical to-do list.) But here's where I'm thinking I will go in the near future...
Terrain. I feel like I've got a really great start on a diverse terrain collection. It's also somewhat more relaxing to work on. Or at least differently relaxing, and especially good lately when I've been a bit under the weather. I have a big list of things I'd like to make, but I'm content to just work on it as I feel like it, without rushing. "Wave Three" of the rivers & roads, some bridges, more buildings, ancient ruins, trees, and a whole lot of other stuff.
Fomorians/Fimir. I'd like to get back to this. I still have some great figures to paint up, plus more of my Reaper orc conversions to flesh things out. But I think this may take a momentary back seat to...
Marienburg. I think it's about time to return to the Marienburgers. While I do still have a lot of figures painted for this army (I sold some a few years ago,) I don't have the army I want. This is due to a shift in my gaming habit. In 6th/7th edition WFB, Empire swordsmen were a great buy. And in the context of the usual 6th/7th/8th gaming environment, every little advantage was important. Less effective troops were not worth taking due to the ultra competitive nature of popular gaming and Warhammer's focus on list-building. So I convinced myself to paint up a boatload of them as "sword and buckler men" and at this point that represents the dominant troop type in my Marienburg collection.
However, I would really prefer pike & halberd troops. And I could really use some crossbowmen too. So maybe it's about time to paint those up.
