(AP 2018) Carnevale Guild and Patricians
« on: March 10, 2018, 11:25:55 PM »
Reasoning that the pressure of public performance will make me get on and do stuff, I've decided to try and set myself the goal of finishing all of my Carnevale miniatures (including suitable ones that I've collected from other companies) by the end of the year. The 'stretch goal' is that I'll have all of the buildings completed too. And a board to put them on. With canals.

Now, I'm not always the speediest painter and my track record with scenery is pretty much non-existant so we shall see how this goes.

To start with, a picture of where I am now. This is probably 3/4 of the models and represents all of the ones that have been constructed and re-based. As you can see, a handful have been mostly painted but none are absolutely, 100% finished.



I'm intending to concentrate on The Guild to begin with - the citizens, rogues, ne'er-do-wells and freedom fighters.

Look forward to seeing your progress, the Carnevale figures look super, my humble painting would never do them justice so always nice to see others work on them. :)

I'm keen to follow this.

I backed the KickStarter but my opponent has moved away for work and I haven't even undercoated the miniatures.

Keen to see these - I always liked this the Carnevale theme.

Over the weekend I finished off the six models that were 90% finished and added two more that were started from scratch. This is really quite impressive for me - I tend to leave everything 'almost finished' because I don't have the discipline to do the last few steps. Anyway, pics are below.

By the way, if I'm doing something wrong in the way that I post the pics, do let me know. I'm trying not to make them too big, etc. but I've not done this before so will take guidance. Would it be better if I just post the link to the gallery? Dunno.

The photo sizes are fine.
Just posting the link is easier for you, however, as the viewers, we want it easier for us, and you may lose your following. Just my observation.

Great work on the miniatures.
Yearly painting challenges only show me how useless I am at painting...

That's the model that first caught my attention from the entire range and is possibly still my favourite. You probably don't want to know quite how much swearing there was while constructing the damn thing. And then, after I'd finished painting him, I slightly knocked it in an odd way and it snapped off at the ankle.  *sigh* He's like the Bionic Man - metal pins everywhere!

Thank you for the advice!

Pictures are great, good size and in focus.

Who is the long coat guy with the 2 pistols?

That one is from the "Privateers 1" pack from Black Scorpion Miniatures. I picked up a few from their Pirate range as they are sufficiently generic that they can fit into this, allowing for the carnival-costume vibe.

I've also got a handful of Brotherhood/Bruderschaft miniatures from Freebooter Miniatures for similar reasons.

Thanks.
I have a couple of Black Scorpion figures in one of my Carnevale bands but had not seen that guy before. I like him.

The Freebooter's Brotherhood make excellent Guild proxies. Reaper have a couple of lovely figures in Venetian style masks too.

Fantastic stuff.

I keep meaning to paint my existing Carnevale stuff before the new tt combat stuff arrives. The old models are lovely but assembly is always a pain though, I hate fiddly multi part metal models.

Thank you for that. Re: construction: I have chosen to file them under the heading "a challenge" which has kept me sane. On the other hand, I have yet to attempt the pulcinella-on-ostrich model. I fear it.
