rumours of spring

Just in time for the spring equinox, we have Oberon, king of the fairies.

I've always loved this figure, but finally decided to dig out of the drawers of woe because it meets the criteria to be an entry for the friendly Q1 painting competition over at Frothers, which has a March31 deadline. I'm going to be engaged for much of march and not able to get much painting in on the weekends, so its a good thing to get this done and out of the way.

Its also that time of year again where I tend to take a little diversion to paint something for the FUUK demo game at Salute. 2012 is no different, and this year I've decided to put my efforts toward a little contribution for the Fantasy WW1 game.

First up I assembled this little resin VSF steam tank from Ironclad miniatures. I didn't like the little machine gun it had on the front so I swapped it out for something with a little more *boom*. I also dremeled away the top hatch to make room for a crewman.

A little brass sheeting and plastic tubing for rivets is turning into a replacement hatch cover to have slung open over the new opening.

I think its going to be a fun little project.
