Well, I can’t say it’s much of a surprise, being as how I AM a geek. Been kind of interested in miniature wargaming for some time, and then Larry Correia started posting pictures of his figures, and one thing led to another, and I got together with one of my buddies and went halfsies on a 2-player starter set for Warmachine. That was probably in… August, maybe? Since then I’ve spent the equivalent of a high-quality AR build on paint and tiny toy steam-powered robots (or as Butch would say, Nerd-bots). Not a particularly cheap hobby.
The red guys are the “Khador” faction, sort of the Russian Imperialist/Commie aesthetic equivalent in the game story, and the khaki/OD green guys are the dwarven subfaction of mercenaries, that I really like the look of. Keeping in mind that the biggest one of them that I have is about 3 inches tall, I don’t think I’ve done a half-bad job at it:
So there you go, yet another way for me to waste my time and money (not like it’s doing any good sitting in a bank). Less practical than other hobbies, perhaps, but it scratches the artistic itch. Maybe I’ll post more pictures as things progress.
