|A few of Copplestone's Gangster civilians|
Another issue I'm having is space. I still have plenty of space, but I don't want to devote ALL of it to storing miniatures. Hmm ... perhaps it's time to start selling stuff? 28mm Foundry gladiators, vikings, various others here and there. Parting with them is not the problem, it's just the logistics of it all. I guess I have space enough for two or three more packs of Copplestone gangsters. Hmm, maybe Jeff would like some vikings and gladiators? That way, I can still see them occasionally when I visited :)
Maybe I should start painting minis one at a time? Carefully, with thought, planning and patience? Instead of a complete new collection of Copplestone figures, just a pack or two to last me a month or two?
Oh, rambling thoughts.
Oh, lovely! If I get around to a pulp era figure collection, I was seriously considering doing them all up in black and white. Nice to see the idea in reality.ReplyDelete
Aw- don't repaint them! They're swell!ReplyDelete
I LOVE these models. I have been itching to try my hand at something like this and I think this was the final straw in me holding back.ReplyDelete
How about a tutorial on how to paint these ...ReplyDelete
what do you want for the B&W figs, and the vikings?ReplyDelete
Ken, I'm probably gonna keep the Gangsters, but I think I'll dig out my old (Foundry) vikings (older paint job, too) and take a few pics and post. I'll figure out a price once I see them again; I haven't taken them out of the case in a couple years. Busy week, so I don't know when I'll get that done, though.ReplyDelete
Wargames Editor: Check out my blog archives; go to April 2007, there is a step-by-step. I also have a PDF copy of the issue of Miniatures Painting and Modelling Magazine in which I talk about painting black and white (with pics). Send me an e-mail at evilcartoonist at yahoo, and I can send you a copy.
By the way, Here's what I've decided: Maybe sell of the Vikings and Gladiators. Purchase one pack of Gangsters to paint for the time being. I'm also stripping the paint off a couple beat cops I did in color. Still going to do them in color, I just felt like repainting them. (They also had an ugly skin tone from before I had worked out a good recipe.)ReplyDelete
