So, my Conan board game Kickstarter rewards arrived on 26 October, and I have yet to open it. I should be exited, but 20 months after pledging, I just really don't care. I backed it for the miniatures, but even those fail to excite me anymore. Given that the rulebook is by the creators' own admission, a mess, I'm unlikely to even try to play it until I have a printed copy of the new version in my hands. This is my trouble with Kickstarter. Many of them look cool and lure me in, but past a certain point, I lose interest. Oh, well. At least I have a bunch of new sword and sorcery miniatures (221 to be exact). Does anyone else find themselves generally feeling blah about Kickstarters once they arrive?

Since it's Halloween, we will continue with the undead theme and also with a figure from Mithril Miniatures. This one is a barrow wight, which sadly no longer appears to be available. I bought this back when I was in college, but I just never got around to painting it. The paint job was fairly easy, being mostly black with progressively lighter shades of grey as highlights. I was hoping to make the sword look a bit eerie with a light coating of Nihilak Oxide, but that really didn't work out. Overall though, I'm fairly happy with the results.
