For the last few years, I’ve pickedupmodelsat Adepticon for the the kids to paint. This year, with no Adepticon, I had to do something else. Ruth had mentioned liking these treefolk while at the shop with me, so I picked up the box for her.
This was also the excuse I used to buy GW Contrast paints, though I’ve certainly used them for myself.
Ruth carefully studied the box art when deciding how to paint her tree friends.
We’ve also played a game of Underworlds with it. Ruth declares that her favorite warband is still the Sepulchral Guard, though. She likes the ability to bring her guys back after they get killed.
I continued the tradition of picking up some chibi models for the kids at Adepticon this year. This time it didn’t take a full year to get them painted.
Max’s (age four) favorite color is blue. Can you tell? This year I encouraged him to try drybrushing to pick out the highlights, and dot the eyes with white for a bit of life. He also wanted to edge the bases with an orange paint that he had previously gotten for me as a gift.
Ruth (age seven) is starting to think a bit more realistically than just blocks of color. I helped her with some washes. She wanted pink metal as base edging, so I mixed some up for her.
I also got myself a chibi knight pony, but haven’t gotten around to painting it yet.
