Anima Tactician (shameless plug)

A quick shameless plug for one of my other blogs: Anima Tactician.

Anima Tactician (link) is Anima Tactics-centric; therefore the content is all about my forays into that game and related topics.

Anima Tactics is a tabletop minis game, using a pretty low model count, and clearly influenced by Japanese console rpgs such as Final Fantasy, Suikoden, Breath of Fire et al.

So far I have painted 13 minis for the game (having kicked off my painting in earnest late last year), and I hope to get that to around 30-40 by the end of this year - eventually I would like to have at least one painted example of every mini in the range.

So please come across and check out the blog as I stumble through what is for me a fairly new hobby diversion.

Modular Buildings and Ruins for Wargamers Kickstarter

I only stumbled on this Kickstarter yesterday, but it may be of interest to WWII/weird WWII gamers in various scales (15mm;20mm; 28mm).


The demo video is here (just over 3 minutes; not the most polished video, but the project is explained and outlined):

Quarter 1 2013 Painting Summary

Click to enlargify
Just a quick post to summarize what I have painted so far this year. As you may recall, I did not paint much last year (24 minis in total), so one thing I wanted to do was get a lot more than that painted this year.

In the year before that I painted 32 minis. This year I want to do at least 40 minis, preferably closer to 50.

I have undertaken a couple of painting challenges already which has helped, and will no doubt be engaging in Zomtober with Rob and others (Brummie - you up for it?), so there will be at least 4-5 Zombies penciled in for October, so 50 does not sound impossible, but it can only be achieved if I hit a target of around 4-5 minis per month, and around 12-14 per quarter as a minimum. And thankfully, despite a lean February, I have hit that so far for Quarter 1!

Those minis (I used to make the collage; nice and easy):

For a grand total of 13 minis - yay! Now onward into Quarter 2...
