Renewed Enthusiasm For My Project?

This week there have been a couple of events that *may* help reignite my motivation for my Anima Tactics project.

The first was the arrival my order of the recent releases of Anaximenes, Nimrod, Sharsha 'Friedegunde' and September. After the announcement that Anima Tactics would become a web-only line, and then the inertia of releases from Cipher Studios, when they finally became available I ordered them immediately. Another seven weeks or so passed and my enthusiasm for painting Anima Tactics waned week by week, before they arrived against my expectations on Monday this week.

In addition, the latest update to the Anima: Gate of Memories Extended Campaign (the Kickstarter campaign for an Anima video game) this week announced that the next update will show the 'greens for the Bearer and the Nameless minis. We have seen the Bearer already, but the Nameless will be a new thing to see.

With these two events I can feel a little renewed enthusiasm. and after starting to de-flash some of the new arrivals, I may use painting one of them to try and spur me into painting more of my Anima Tactics backlog.


  1. Any news about where the game will be going? I love the minis and will continue to buy/paint them but I would love some positive news. To me , these are some of the best minis available.

    1. All I have heard is that Anima Studios (Carlos) has been looking for a new partnership, and that there could be an announcement re: Anima Tactics 2.0/second edition in 2016.

      That said, I think there are a couple of major potential barriers:
      1. the amount of time needed to focus on and support a minis game with new minis, rules and fluff content etc.

      2. If CS retains their license for the existing range that could be an issue I think.

  2. Fingers crossed for you mate. Hopefully you can find the urge to get some done :)

    1. Indeed. I am already mentally planning how to paint Nimrod. :)
