Well, when I was approached by Eastern Front Studios about painting some miniatures for their Kickstarter program, I was not sure how it would all work. Looking at the images that I was shown... some fantastic concept art by the very talented Andy Hopp, I was immediately persuaded to say "Yes, I want to paint those!!"
Who wouldn't? Look at these amazing ideas. To me, they are completely unique. Hard to say in this day and age. :-)
I cannot tell you which ones might be made right off the bat, but I have tried to set up these pictures according to the increasing levels of support.
These are going to be sculpted by Jason Wiebe, who has done so many great sculpts for Reaper. I know that Cathy and I have painted many figures sculpted by Jason.
Obviously, more details are forthcoming. This is more of an introduction. I believe that early 2013 is the time frame for this project. All of the painting that I do will be featured on the blog, as I prep them and paint them. I think it will be a very fun journey!!!
Should things go well with the Kickstarter, you could ultimately be seeing such whimsical and different gribblies like these!!
OK, one more for the command squad! This time it's the Astropath.
I was able to give the flow improver an even bigger test here, and it worked like a charm on all the freehand. That was great, since there seemed to be no end to all the scrolls and seals! :-)
Here is a picture set of the conversion itself:
Here is the next Command Squad member. I had always been fascinated with the Vostroyan figures, wondering what they would be like to paint. These have lived up to expectations, despite the relative age of the sculpts.
The WIP images of this can be seen in a post from yesterday...
The flow improver was very helpful once again. Surprisingly, it was very helpful in rough textured areas such as the hat.
