Beware the Jabberwock, my son!

One of my all time favorite poems is by Lewis Carroll, author of Alice in Wonderland: Jabberwocky From “Through the Looking Glass”  (1871) ’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe.   “Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that […]

Night Terrors

Some superfast Night Terrors from Shadows of Brimstone: City of the Ancients today. I chose to paint them close to the “official” paint scheme. These monsters are more or less the most “normal” looking monsters in the SoB games. Large humanoid and shaggy, black as night, they strike from the darkness of the mine tunnels. And […]

Bats!

I am too flighty to only keep at any one group of models at a time, and since I have so much in my Mountains of Minis, I am spoiled for choice. Sometimes I just pick a mini at random to paint. …next up it the 77046: Bat Swarm from the first Bones Kickstarter. This piece […]
