What's in the Box Part (I forget)/State of the Cave

Yesterday after I dropped the boys of at nursery school I headed down to the post office as I had an email/tracking number informing me I could expect a package from New Jersey and Mr Hawkins. I was unlucky as I was not able to grab it before it was put on the truck for delivery. I had some other business to take care of at the post office as I have decided to commission someone to paint my Super Dungeon Explore core set and Dragon Clutch booster. This was a little odd for me as I have painted every mini in my collection but I really wanted them to look right and knew I wasn't going to be able to work on them anytime soon.

There were two items in the box from Rob. One of which is going to remain a surprise for a little while. I will be taking WiP photos while I work on it so I will do a step by step post but for now it will remain hush hush. I have already spent somewhere between one and two hours working on this project. This has been a combination of airbrush and standard painting so far. I have a bunch more to do but I want to get this project done ASAP so all other projects are sliding down the ladder.

The second item is an IKRPG mini which is a near duplicate of one he did for PP and No Quarter magazine. This gentleman here is going to be a gifted, gunmage, rifleman (or maybe scout). If you have the NQ you can see that the only difference is the addition of a Hammerfall highshield backpack.

I am relatively close to attaching the bison and war wagon to the 120mm base. I will wait to do this until Friday as I received a second email on Monday saying I can expect a package on Friday from Battlefoam with some half trays of various sizes (I think 5 in total). I want to have the wagon tray in hand before I glue mini to base so that I can be sure it will fit well in the Battlefoam.

I know I haven't been overly active painting of late but the last day and a half and the new mystery project have me pretty fired up again so hopefully there will be a rush of posts over the next two weeks. I haven't played a game in nearly 2 months and I am dying to get out and play. The hope is Friday but we will see what happens.


  1. The rifleman looks awesome. I got some bits to try building an IKRPG character or two. We'll see how that goes.

    1. Yeah Rob did a heck of a job on him for sure. I think he has some new IKRPG characters in the next NQ. I have parts to build 2-3 trollking characters I just haven't gotten around to doing anything with them. So when are you going to set up an IKRPG group? :)

  2. Yep, NQ45 has three more IKRPG conversion by Rob. Two Arcane Field Mechaniks and a labor jack.

    No plans on an IKRPG group just yet. I'm waiting for yours. ;-)
