I have been mining my mountains of minis on the hunt for miniatures from last century to paint and enter in The Old School Fantasy Painting Party over on the LAF forum, I have uncovered a few nuggets of golden oldies I would like a crack at. However, whether I can manage to make time to paint […]Read More Beware the Jabberwock, my son (the ancient one!)

Apocalypse Now! (sorry, just had to) The Others: 7 Sins boardgame has an Expansion named Apocalypse. Unsurprisingly, it includes versions of The Four Horsemen…and a …Thing…called Greater Demon of the Apocalypse: They are all large minis.

The third round is done, here is my entry: “Off to off the wizard” The figures are from Reaper Bones KS3, “Chronoscope* Wild West Oz”. Since they all were armed, I see this as a sort of hit squad, hence the title. I based them on 30mm round display bases from Reaper, and I […]Read More Lead Painters League round 3
The fourth round of the Lead Painter’s League has a “support weapon” theme. I painted the following with this in mind, but I ended up entering something else instead. The Sledgehammer BFG by Victoria Miniatures via the Reaper Bones third kickstarter. I have not actually painted any large vehicles or similar kits like this in […]Read More It’s Sledgehammer Time!
