It's time to show off all I have(n't) done for NOVA this past week! NOVA is fast approaching, but I'm starting to see a glimmer of hope for finishing. I've decided that with the two exocrines and third flyrant, I'm going to get them to a 3 color standard first, then go back if I have time. That takes a lot of the pressure off, and insures that I can play with all of my models when I get there.
Week 5 -
These urban invasion bases are from Secret Weapon Miniatures, and are fantastic. I can't recommend them enough. They have some tile elements that I'm covering with ballast (since I don't have any tile in my basing theme), but aside from that they fit the theme I'm going for perfectly. Here are some shots of the flyrant base (also a secret weapon base), the exocrine secret weapon base, the zoeys/venom on their secret weapon bases, and some putty work I did on my custom made crone base to bring it in line with the others.
Week 4 -
Week 3 -
Week 2 -
Week 1 - Wrap up, counters, markers, psychic power cards, packing bags, etc.
Evan and I will be attending a display board workshop at NOVA, which gives us the opportunity to completely finish a display board in a couple hours before the GT starts. I'm hoping I can get the creeping invasion theme going across to that as well, but all of that putty work might be hard in the time we have. I suppose there is always spray foam? Also - the seminar is a steal at $15 (they provide materials), so who cares if the end result gets tossed after the tourney.
Alright guys and gals, that about sums up my progress for the week. Stay tuned for more updates, pics, and terrible jokes next week!
