The very hesitant arrival of spring is already shifting priorities. We are still in lockdown, but I am also much more outside with my son. The painting motivation is not gone, but the time is largely used differently. Nevertheless, I will continue to paint, of course, but for now I’m limiting myself to single miniatures. It was just the right time to devote myself to the great new “Kids on wheels” from Morgue Miniatures. It is the second set to release minis of 80’s inspired kids. Morgue Miniatures funded the set via Kickstarter, I was right in. Recently they arrived at my door (British mail can take a while now) and I was blown away by the quality. Sharp, beautiful casting, great models overall. Only downer is that they are quite large for children/youth. Next to an adult 28mm figure they are the same size – this does not fit in proportion of course, but should not bother and due to the driving equipment it may bei not so noticeable anyway.
The first thing I did was paint the skateboarder. Went nice and fast and was really fun. Classic baseball jacket, skateboard under his feet, flowing hair – he immediately reminds of the 80s. A nice start. Let’s continue with the first bike.
