Warhammer Quest: The Bats

160829 WQ bats group

A full dozen big, blind bats. Wings took too long with my shaky hands slopping paint all over making lines where no lines should be, needing fixing again and again.

I chose to base them on 30mm bases for stability.

Warhammer Quest: The Little Green Men

I have been rummaging a bit through my boxes of yesteryear, looking for specific minis to sell. Always a bit of fun that, rediscovering minis I have forgotten I had, especially when they are primed and ready to paint. The other day I found a bag full of the dungeon critters from Warhammer Quest…

I have been eyeing up some orcs and some goblins lately, and today I felt like trying out some different greenish skintones…Always a good thing to have some prepped minis lying about when that itch comes a’knocking.

Useful stuff, little evil smufs ready to swarm the heroes and nickle and dime them to death. 12 of the little blighters present and complete.

(actually I had 11 in the bag, and had to harvest one off a sprue I had lying about elsewhere. I built a Nurgle Chaos Marines army converted with skaven parts at one point and raided several such sprues for the little rats, leaving a bunch of sprues in a semi plucked state.

Expect spiders, rats and/ or bats in the near future…

Did this one on a whim:

I seem to be influenced by watching all those trashy movies and playing games where Ninjas all wear colourful accents to their clothing such as red sashes or neon blue ponchos!


This swordsman is going to spark some shouts of  FATALITY if and when he takes down an opponent in Frostgrave…

Putting the Fun back into Fungus: Mushroom Men

With the release of the “Into the Breeding Pits” dungeon expansion for Frostgrave, there is now a second random encounter chart to make monsters for!  Featuring such clear and present dangers as bands of Gnolls, those classic skeletons, zombies and ghouls, dungeon staples such as giant rats and sewer slime, larger monsters such as minotaurs, trolls and various demons,  we also might encounter the Violent Fungus!

As an aside, the popular myth of the classic red toadstool as the battle frenzy-inducing drug that Viking Berserkers ate before entering the fray has been thoroughly debunked, as the high that you get makes you uncoordinated and really bad at fighting.

The Stormcast Eternals aka Sigmarines

So I bought the Age of Sigmar game set when it was new, (Has it been a full year already?) and today I finished the first of the miniatures from it.

After prepping and priming them, I have been putting them off and off and off while deciding upon a paint scheme that does not take too long to do. This one was not too bad.

I basecoated with Army Painter Plate Mail primer spray. After that, glorious gold detailing and a couple other colours before a controlled wash with Army Painter Dark Tone Quickshade Ink (the dropper bottle version, not the dip) and a little highlighting with plate mail and shining silver.

I think it turned out fine.
