I still have a lot of old metal minis lying about, and since I recently moved house I have dug up quite a lot of interesting minis from boxes I had forgotten I had…
This time from old-school Warzone:
Muawijhe is one of the Dark Apostles (=Chaos Gods) and the Lord of Visions, and his followers tend to go a bit mad. Karnophages are changed remnants of humans that tried to strike deals with His Insanity, and consequently have lost all their marbles and gone completely round the bend. They cavort around the battlefield, tearing into their opponents with abandon. Or something like that.
Basically your typical human-sized combat demons/cannon fodder. I also have a few I painted back in the day, these are done in a similar enough fashion so I can make a larger squad if I want.

You might have seen the legless raptor I did some weeks ago?
Here is it’s mother:
The family resemblance is striking, this of course being they are from the same series, the Lizardmen by Harlequin Miniatures, some time in the late nineties or early naughties.
This one was originally a riding beast. I think it looks great on it’s own.
If ever a beast looked both intelligent and ready to kill without warning…

For some reason, I had half a skeleton lying about, and coupled with a loose base from another mini I recently rebased, I got this:
Not much to write home about. Fills an empty slot in the skeleton unit is all.

Space…the final frontier. These are the voyages….yeah, you know the rest.
And these little grey aliens in Bones from the second KS. Just had to do them like the Blue Man Group were cosplaying some modern era Star Trek:
Away Team, Command:
Captain leading the away team, wearing the red shirt of command. What can possibly go wrong?
Away Team, Security:
“We are the Bald. Resistance is Futile. You must comply.” -Locutus of Bald
Away Team, Medical:
The one to the right…Mould line to the face!
And, yes. Those are Voyager uniforms, not Next Generation.
I switched the team members a bit around from what was on the sprues, because I thought my selections suited the roles better.
Now to do the Flying Saucer up as the Yangtsee Kiang…

Out of all the heroes in Shadows of Brimstone, the one I always found most interesting is the Preacher.
Might have something to to with me often playing the Cleric in AD&D back in the day. So here is Father Patrick “Dies Irae ” O’Murphy. Ready to Kick Arse for the Lord!

Oathsworn Miniatures have made a series of resin scatter terrain pieces to go with their Dwarfs and their Burrows and Badgers Kickstarters. They have done everything by themselves, making moulds and casting at home on their dinner table, and sharing the entire process via their excellent updates.
Here are the first two bits I have done, the Burrows and Badgers Tents.
Keeping it simple.
These are well made tents for the discerning adventurer, and a place for the dormouse to sleep when the teapot is needed for tea.
When all the bits are done, they will make for an interesting campsite among ruins for a furball fight.

Many years ago, I got hold of some of the old school Chaos Dwarfs, from the legendary time when the Chaos Dwarfs were small chaos warriors rather than snaggle-toothed curly-bearded Sumerian look-alikes.
This one is a fuse lighter from one of the war machines. Sadly, I do not have any of said war machines. Yet.
And he/she/it wears the studded leather stocking that was a hallmark of followers of Slaanesh at the time with pride!
