Oh GW, what have you done to my beloved night goblins? Luckily these variant models, for want of a better word, only appear in the Silver Tower game and are (probably) not weirdo GW newgoblins, but a different breed of chaos goblin altogether. Thank F for that. That said, I quite like the concept. Tzeentch […]Read More Into the Silver Tower, part 3: Scuttlings
Reading through the Shadows of Brimstone: Caverns of Cyder otherworld expansion I got in the wave 1,5 shipment, I see that they have made Cynder-versions of the Hellbats called Lavabats and the Hungry Dead called Restless Spirits. Which prompted me to look at what I had left of the extra set of sprues I got with […]Read More Shadows of Brimstone: Last of the Stranglers
Thrusting onwards with Silver Tower minis: Talk about your radical re-designs. These are significantly different from the original oldhammer ones I recently painted up. They are nice on their own terms, and certainly have more movement to them. But they seem less…fun? The originals were all grinning happy pink horrrors, and […]Read More Into the Silver Tower, part 2: The Blue Horrors
Frostgrave has some interesting charts of random encounter monsters. Which means having said monsters ready to play is a good thing. And what is a game set in the lands of ice and snow without Ice Trolls? Even though I have not bothered to specially base my frostgravers with snow effects, and there really is nothing […]Read More Reaper Bones 77344 Ice Troll
During the last few months I have traded and bought a good deal of second hand metal minis through a forum I joined, and several miniatures I do not know any details about have come into my possession. Here is one of them: …or is he recoiling from the cross? Was he bitten last […]Read More Putting the Fear into Friar
Reaper likes to make minis of all kinds of fantasy archetypes, including ones that are very good representatives of well-known fictional characters. I don’t mean to say that they are copies or knock-offs or anything like that. These minis are all original work that tend to immediately make you think of said characters. A picture says more than a thousand words: […]Read More Putting the C in Barbarian!
Some time ago I came across this lovely little gem for sale second hand on a forum. I just had to have it. Y’Golonac the Great Old one, The Defiler, The Lord of Depravity and Perversion… Originally from one of Ramsay Campbells short stories, this is one of the few great old ones that […]Read More Y’Golonac, the Great Old One
Ghostly apparitions seem to be a thing these days. Here is the Bones Shadow Hound, made in translucent purple: Slightly reminiscent of “Attack the Block”. The thicker the plastic gets, the less translucency the mini retains. Come to think of it, I probably should have shone a light through it from behind to show the translucency […]Read More Bones Translucent Shadow Hound
I have been going through some of my boxes of older minis to find some I can sell to fund my massive overspending on minis and kickstarters. And I came across these excellent old blighters. Not selling those. Oh no. How can you not love that adorable face? With these I continued experimenting with my […]Read More Oldhammer: Pink and Blue Horrors of Tzeentch
Yes, that happened. I bought some new citadel minis. Those “start collecting” sets are too good to pass up. I bought the Malignants set, with Spirit hosts, hexwraiths/black knights and the mortibladiblah-whatever engine ghost coach thingy. All I have gotten around to prep are the spirit hosts. Took me ages to glue, getting them to […]Read More Newhammer: Spirit Hosts of the Malignants
I have not been painting most anything the last month or so. But I have been building and prepping a lot of minis, such as the Shadows of Brimstone wave 1,5, a whole bunch of metal minis from trades and purchases, and the Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower game set. I don’t like to call it […]Read More Into the Silver Tower, part I: Where is the Fish? Fishy, Fishy, Fishy, Fish?
