Sunday Evening Already?

What with the UK going into British Summer Time this weekend, Sunday evening has come around a little quicker than usual. That means that before long the evenings will be getting lighter for longer and there may be more time for all those hobby activities that keep us all sane.

So...what's on the agenda? Well, first up, Inso and I would like to welcome our new follower Igo. It's great to have you aboard!

Next, I would be telling you all about what is on Inso's painting table...but I can't. I am sworn to secrecy because Inso is sworn to secrecy. He is currently painting a pair of pre-production master castings from an up and coming miniatures range. All I can say is that they are sci-fi and they are extremely interesting. I'm sorry I can't say any more but as soon as the pictures are allowed to be released, they will be.

What else? Well, the small Hasslefree package has arrived and work has begun on Inso's next little project.

Have you ever seen Star Trek? Serenity? Farscape? Starwars? Space; Above and Beyond? Well they all have something in common. They all have a small selection of 'speciality' crewmen/women who plod around the galaxy having adventures. With that in mind, Inso has embarked on a little journey into space exploration of the sci-fi pirate kind.

The first part is selecting and converting the 'speciality' crew members and the next bit will be converting a few 'boarding party' troops. Well here is the start of the project:

On the back row, we have the captain, his warrior friend and his 2nd in command. They are a converted 'Pirate Kjaran' a WIP 'Hasslefresian the troll slayer' and a converted 'Sola'.

On the front row we have A Mystic sensai with her two prodigies. They are a 'Mystic Knight Kieran', 'Angela the Dwarf' and 'Mystic Knight Jen'.

All of the miniatures are from Hasslefree Miniatures and when they are complete, they will be the characters for the crew. Inso has a small collection of standard Grymn with shotguns that will all be converted to be the boarding party.

...there has also been talk of a ship, for their travels...

It has been a sad weekend for Inso. Yesterday was the Salute war-games convention in London and he was unable to go. He has been like a cat on a hot tin roof waiting for information and pictures to surface. He was particularly gutted to miss meeting all the guys and girls from the Forum of Doom and the release of Twilight, a new miniatures game with a whole host of unique miniatures...

...hopefully, he'll calm down when all the information and pictures from the event surface on line.

Well that's another Sunday update for you. Hopefully there will be plenty more to come.

Catch you later.

Verrrrry interesting! Firstly, can't wait to see your mystery sculpts!

Love the idea of a Grymn adventurer group!

I wouldn't lay money on ever seeing the spaceship, though, given Inso's history...

And yeah, it feels a bit sad not to be able to go to Salute. Even for me from down under.

Like many things, projects start and projects go on the back-burner. There are only a few that never get finished so maybe the ship will be a future thing?

The tank is still ticking is the you never know.

I will say that so far, it is only talk of a it depends on whether it gnaws at the mind or not ;).
