The next of the pre-kickstarter Bones to be completed is the Gnoll: You don’t want this kilted maniac mocking you with his laughter whilst raiding your livestock. He does seem to be looking to give someone a Glasgow Kiss! Black base coat, fur and skin is desert yellow and khaki with soft tone ink shading […]Read More Gnoll MacDonald raids your farm, E-I-E-I-O!
So the time has come to try out some simple paint schemes for the Dreadball teams. First out are the Robots’ “Team Toasters” and the Z’zor “Bully Bugs” (name subject to change): I have chosen a simple scheme for both teams, as most of the Season 2 figures all have rather a lot of […]Read More Test painting Dreadball Z’zor and Robots
Too much time has been used lately putting together units for the plastic Undead army I got from the Kings of War kickstarter. There are a bajillion bits to be cut, cleaned up and glued together, and it takes forever! Gorram You, Mantic, for putting all those lovely options and detailing bits in! Also, the […]Read More Test-painting the Mantic Ghouls
This one was really quick to paint, done in a couple of hours all together last night. Look at the back -someone has spilled water on this one. Note to self: do not feed it after midnight! Black undercoat, I did the skin a dark blue and drybrushed with dark purple several shades up to […]Read More The fifth Bone, The Troll of the Deep
The fourth Bone to be completed is the Unicorn. This one was mostly uninspired and somewhat of a struggle, and has been dabbled with on and off over the past few weeks. I had a lot of halfbaked not quite thought out ideas, but they conflicted and I had to start over a couple of […]Read More The fourth Bone, the Horn-Horse
Someone in the Mantic Forums requested a comparison shot of Harlequin Miniatures vs Mantic undead. So I obliged. Harlequin miniatures was the Mantic of it’s day (late 90’s early 00’s), offering less expensive alternatives for Warhammer Fantasy Battles, without stating that was what they were for. The quality of the sculpts (and sizes of the […]Read More Comparison shots Harlequin, Mantic, Old Citadel
Some more oldies I rediscovered and decided to paint. These are “The Drugged” from the Stygian faction in the excellent but defunct game Chronopia. The Stygian are a race of raptor-like warriors, and the Drugged are their human shields. As I had 15 of these finished from earlier times, I did these in an identical […]Read More More random rediscovered minis
Another random mini from the old boxes under the cellar stair, rediscovered and painted recently: Chronopia Sons of Kronos Unliving Wilding Wight Yep, I also read books and watch the telly now and then. So this one had to be a blue-eyed wight! He should of course have had more clothes on to have fitted […]Read More Unliving Wilding
Mortar, the Gargoyle When I got this figure, both wings were pointing directly backwards. So I have boiled and repositioned the wings, and also moved the stance forwards, as it leaned way back. After a few days, both the wings and the stance had moved rather a lot back to their original position, so I […]Read More The third of the pre-kickstarter Bones finished!
The Ghost, on a 40×40 base with a metal tombstone (don’t know the make, it was found among a lot of old unpainted scenery stuff I have in a box under the cellar stairs.) This will also do nicely for a Spirit Host in Warhammer. The bendyness of the Bones material was a […]Read More The second of the pre-kickstarter Bones finished
