Don't ya just love ordering a bunch of minis online, then losing your job the next day? Yep.
Oh well. I am getting used to bad things happening. It's really toughened me up. I am like a honeybadger. A big, dykey honeybadger. In a ninja gi. Probably with an eighties film gang member headband. I am now so tough, I could be a backing dancer in Michael Jackson's Bad. Scary.
The good news is that now I have time for Darkling Games and my Kingsminis video channel. I am back at The Arcade and things are looking great. One day a week is full time on Darkling minis orders, sculpts and kickstarters, one day is dedicated to Kings minis TV and it's Patreon rewards- including Skulldred and Stardred betas. The rest of the week will be focused on video games asset creation and commissions. I officially open for business next monday.
Heroclix. Got some. Mainly for my inner ten year old who was so dissapointed by Iron Fist I needed to give her a decent Marvel fix.
First things first, off with those huge pointless bases. Shazam!
A butter knife is a great way to pop these off. A katana, not so much. Good god they hold katanas badly in Iron Fist. *sigh*
As you can viddy, my droogs- Kingpin got himself some security. Well, they are actually gonna be backup for the two IMEF minis from PAXAus. They will probably spend most of their table time blasting the brains out of walking dead and project Z zombies. I have to convert them, I hate fielding identical minis.
Heroclix have some pretty cool sculpts, but as I am not a huge comic nerd I tend to only know the characters from my teen years- and that means Secret Wars I era. Most clix are... mmmmm less than ideal for repainting. The clix game itself holds no interest for me either, but the challenge of making a prepaint look good? Well, that I can get behind. I have buckets of DnD, Horrorclix and Starwars prepaints in my lock up, so you will no doubt see me tackle them at some point.
I think I am gonna recast this JJ in the role of a cthulu character. He looks particularly at home with these new Wizkids' Blink Dogs. $7 for two blink dogs? Hell yeah.
Yes, I buy all the dog miniatures. All of them. Frikkin' Wyrd know this. Next time I have M£N€¥$, I have to catch up on my Malifaux undead dog collection. Giant undead dog with a gut full of rats? Yes please. So yes.
I don't know what's wrong with me either.
Venom? Looks like he belongs at a KISS concert. Or roadkill. I dunno. I will figure out what to do with him later.
Look, I will be honest with ya... I got the set for Ock, JJ and Kingpin. The Spidey looks like he is soooo bored, and it is rubbing off on... er... Gobbey... Greenie? Whatever. When I think Spiderman, I think dynamic mid swing or crouching. This one looks like he is handing a bus ticket to an inspector.
I wonder who will get the Marvel license after Knight? Kinda hoping Mantic after their Walking Dead triumph. I would snap up some of their figures but... well, snap is the optimal word for their products (yes I am still pissed about my Harley mini snapping at the stupidly thin ankles) and I can't justify $25 for one Racoon when I can get a box of 25 zombies for $50.
Welp, gonna love painting these up. Just need my paints back from my former work.
