Hobby update

I made good use of my visit to see my parents for Thanksgiving.  After about a decade of procrastination, I finally delivered on my Dad's wishes to paint some pilots for his model airplanes.  I spent an afternoon painting up these fellows, to be assigned to future jet aircraft.

My guess is that these guys are 1/72nd scale or perhaps smaller.

Last weekend, I cranked out the lion's share of work for these Dust models, destined for play with Konflikt '47, the latest craze within my gaming group.  I need to work on some details, and I need to add some outlining, but I'm pleased with how these guys came out for tabletop quality, with only about 3 or 4 sessions.

About 80% done. 
I came up with the color scheme.  I have no idea how I'm going to duplicate the gray-teal of the uniforms, when I have to paint another unit.

In other hobby news, my Kickstarter arrived for the Dark Hold Goblins roleplaying game.  My favorite fantasy race combined with one of my favorite role-playing systems, Savage Worlds.  My inner child is clapping his hands with glee.

Here are the goblins that come with the book.  It's a lousy picture, unfortunately, but I can vouch that the casts are incredibly clean.  The designs are fantastically characterful, and the minis are going to be a joy to paint.

Includes some random swine -- plus, pig cavalry!
