…And I finished the second of the Chaos Marines from the Dark Vengeance box set. Too many details! Takes ages even with my sloppyfast paint style. enough said. 25mm base, polystyrene plastic. Total minis painted so far this month: 44Read More Last post of the day: Chaos Marine
The second blob of minis off the shelf today is 12 more of the Mantic Sci Fi Zombie Space Hurps conversions: I really, really need to look into better photography. At any rate, that makes 43 of those zombies done in all. 15-20 or so to go. I must admit they are getting a bit […]Read More Space Hurps part the fifth.
Working to get some groups of miniatures off the shelf, making big strides today. This is the last group of the Bones 2 KS skeletons there was 9 different models in the pack, I bought 2 packs. Now I have a group of 18 ready to go. Put in a couple of […]Read More Even More Skeletons!
From the Bones 2 kickstarter 92786 Bone Devil This was a wonky one, no amount of boiling would get it to keep standing up straight! It would straighten up just fine when held in hot water and then into ice cold, but then it would gradually lean over again over time. I attribute this to the weight […]Read More The Bone Devil
I found this Raptor in one of the piles of old miniatures that are lying about the place, and I took mercy upon it, as it only had one leg. So I mounted it with some wire, slapped some plastic putty over that, and when painted, hid it in the bushes. …I think it […]Read More Ye Pile of Olde: Harlequin Raptor (legless)
This miniature is from way back when, and has seen many different abortive coats of both paint and arms. None of which ever worked. So today I decided to just get it done. Reaper 02119: Knight Templar. The picture does not show the nice colour transitions in the cloak nor the tabard. Too […]Read More Off the Shelf: Reaper Knight Templar
Pushing onwards with getting a few more stragglers off the shelf, today I finished the Mantic Gargoyle test piece. Here I tried a couple of things that did not work, and has been overpainted. at least twice. In the end, I opted for the classic stone colour: grey, also in the wings. 20mm […]Read More Off the Shelf: Mantic Gargoyle
Some more of the Bones 2 Skeletons, now also with armour and clothing: Some bad mould lines along the stonework that a couple of them stood on needed to be concealed with flock. That makes 12 of them finished, with a few more doubles still unpainted to go. 20mm square Mantic base, BonesRead More Six More Bones Skeletons
Even more off the shelf of shame… This unit of 5 Wraiths came as a part of the undead army I bought through the first Mantic Kings of War kickstarter. They were also some of the first minis I got (together with some undead mounted knights) that were in restic. I had never seen, nor […]Read More Mantic Wraiths
I have some half painted, started and aborted minis standing around on the shelf taking up space and making a general nuisance of themselves. So in a concerted move to get rid of a few of them, I am currently trying to finish at least one mini from the shelf for each new I start […]Read More Off the shelf of shame again
So the Age of Sigmar is upon us is it? It’s definatly not the Warhammer I know, that’s for sure. I can’t see this rule set working without making every game a narrative one. There is absolutely no way to balance it. It seems the rules strongly favor the player using few but powerful models, and horde […]Read More Age of Sigmar
Continuing with models from the Bones 2 KS shipment, we get some skeletons out of the closet: 2 each of the barest of bony skeletons, no armour, no frills. Dead simple. They are a bit knock-kneed though. One good thing is that the Bones material used in these is much less bendy than the skeletons in Bones 1. Bones […]Read More Bones 2: The bare bones skeletons
