Prioritise!

I have finally seen IP Man! It is an incredibly good example of a Martial Arts movie. The plot is better than most (although still not great) but the choreography and fight sequences are really incredible. I always like when you can see the different fighting styles and feel the flow of each as unique. I am not sure the Karate that I saw really felt quite right but everything else was spot on.


Painting Minis:
  1. Blood Bowl Stands
  2. Snotlings
  3. Ashigaru
  4. Amazon Team
  5. Arcadia Quest Figures
  6. Zombies (inc Zombicide)
  7. Samurai
  8. Dystopian Wars
  9. Knights
  10. Militia
  11. Gunners
  12. Spearmen
That's a couple thousand figures there. I am going to work (as part of this exercise) on turning out faster, lower quality figures. Not terrible, just more scalable whilst still looking good on the table. This is something I am focusing on for the Ashigaru and will hopefully be able to carry on to the Warhammer figures.
