Ross Jebson was one of this year’s Easter models from Wyrd. He’s an alt Slop Hauler, and may remind you of somebody. I’ve been watching Bob Ross videos with the kids, so I’m primed and ready to go. Of course, I had to have a happy tree, and a cabin. I didn’t exactly follow the prescribed technique, but I can do anything I want, so nice, so nice.
This was the first metal model out of Wyrd for a while. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it, though if it lets them do more small run models it’s worth it. Metal also lets you get away with some finer pieces, like the easel.
Fresh(ish) off a points drop, Miss Deed joins my collection of mercenaries.
The tiny tiny eyes are much harder, and less convincing, here than the giant chibi eyes. But I’m quite happy with the jacket. I used the Secret Weapon rust colors, which I’m really liking for organic browns and reds.
Unlike the last alternate crew I painted, I wanted to get the Winter Wonderland Rasputina set done as soon after release as I could. It’s still winter, right?
The pre-assembled model for Rasputina had some production problems, so the Black Friday kit included a resin version instead. She ended up being the most troublesome model to assemble. The swirly snow clouds did not want to line up, even after being softened with heat. Green stuff hides the worst of it.
The kit came with three separate beast-in-a-box models for the Wendigo. I decided to just use my favorite and save the others for the bit box.
Unlike the yellow official art, I went for a straight up evil Santa scheme for Krampus, including natural flesh tones.
The evil Christmas tree as Ice Golem is the model I’m happiest with of the set. The colors just work nicely together, and too my surprise, the shape of the pine needles actually works.
The snowmen Ice Gamin turned out bluer than I expected, but I think I secretly kind of like it. They’ve got monstrous teeth, so something should be a bit off about them. Plus, it separates them from the snowy bases.
I guess now, between the Dark Carnival and this Winter Wonderland, I have some choices when declaring Arcanists. I should probably just admit that I’ve added another faction to my collection.
