Relic Knights is fairly unique in that it feels like a blend of table top wargaming and a card game. Now, being a Malifaux player the idea of using cards in a game is not new to me, however the way in which relic knights uses them is quite unique.
In Relic Knights you very rarely flip randomly off the top of your deck to see what happens, instead if you can pay for an action on a units card, it goes off. Your opponent can mitigate some of the damage dealt with defensive abilities; if they can afford to play them. Your models stats dictate how many cards you can pick up while performing an action, and the game is about sculpting your hand so you have the cards you need for your upcoming activations, which you have to declare in advance.
Anyway, the advent of the Relic Knights V2 Kickstarter inspired me to go back and paint up some of the models I got with the original Kickstarter.

M8 Tank. Small kinda cute looking AI drone tank thingy. Quite pleased with how this is painted.
Quite pleased with Amelials wings. Not 100% sold on the armour.

Here are the other two Darkspace models. Not Black Diamond characters, but as these plastic darkspace minis are in danger of disappearing, I thought I would pick up the two for the other void aligned factions.
Finally and slightly embarrassingly, I have uploaded pictures of models I did not repaint recently. This is because they will be replaced with V2 resin miniatures as soon as the Kickstarter arrives. However, it is sometimes interesting to see how far painting has come.

Addendum: Followers of my blog (who?) may have noticed that all the updates lately have been painted miniatures. I'm not totally certain if I want to continue with random other socio-political rambles. Or if those things are better sidelined to another blog or what. Then again, there has been rather a lot of politics to talk about lately so I have no shortage of things to talk about. If anyone has any thoughts on this (or anything else for that matter) you can comment or email.
