On the Reaper forum’s bi-monthly resolutionary painting challenge the first bonus challenge of the year is to fingerpaint a miniature. …as in use your fingers to paint it, no brushes or other implements, and you need to do this yourself, not get any help from others, including small-fingered children. Priming and sealing excepted. And it must […]Read More Fingerpainting miniatures!
Reaper released a few minis in Bones before taking them to kickstarter the first time. Here is one of them: And what a beauty it is! That head would take pride of place in the monster hunter’s wall of stuffed trophies! I really don’t know why I have not painted one this earlier. […]Read More The Great and Purple Worm!
Next member of the Hell Club, those thorougly nasty Cenobite-lookalikes who summoned the Sins to the City in the first place, is Grin. This would be the Gimp of the club. Probably sleeps in a locked chest in the basement. Grin, member of the Hell Club The Others: 7 Sins board […]Read More The Others 7 Sins: Hell Club: Grin

Next up is the Bones Hell Cat. Your typical molten lavacreature with broken crust exterior. In Bones the detail is a bit shallow for my taste, which makes it more difficult for me (being such a sloppy drybrusher) to get a “clean” look to the crusty bits, especially when the topmost black coat was a […]Read More The Hell Cat
Last year I bought a unit of unbuilt Chaos Hounds off Ebay on a whim. Which turned out to have no bases and missing a horn. Sigh. When you buy on the cheap, youse gets whats youse gets. First I stuck them on square cavalry bases, but that looked just wrong. I think I have […]Read More A bit about base 3D printing; also Cry Havoc! And let slip the Hounds of Chaos!
These are from one of the three enemy expansion sets that were added to the KS as paid add ons in the pledge manager, as the stretch goals for them were only just not reached… so they made them anyway and charged extra for them. As I wanted the lot, I added them, using some […]Read More Shadows of Brimstone: Trun Hunters aka the Visitors
The defending human faction in The Others board game consists of a number of cyberpunk / future agents and operatives including both normal and enhanced humans, and supernaturals such as werewolves and half-demons… I painted Karl in his Human form some time ago, and here is him as a Werewolf. Karl is a member of […]Read More The Others: Agents of F.A.I.T.H: Karl in Werewolf form
Prepping all the Conan stuff has taken a long time! Thats 200+ PVC minis! And some scenery bits like chairs, benches, tables, bookcase, torch stands, a sarcophagus and these: In essence they are simply piles of skulls. But what piles they are! Stack ’em high! Certainly the finest skull piles I have seen in miniature […]Read More Chewing the Scenery: Conan boardgame – The Piles of Skulls
This was actually the first new mini I bought after I regained my interest for miniatures a few years ago. I remember being a bit miffed by the metal mini not having the same level as detail as the green they used for advertising. After prepping it, the mini disappeared in some box or other for […]Read More The Necromancer from Avatars of War
Every few months I get the itch for some Chaos Marines. Good thing I have the minis from Dark Vengeance set lying about to scratch with. Here is the third one of the squad I have completed. They take ages to do, with all the busy details, so the squad will probably be finished sometime […]Read More Dark Vengeance: Chaos Marine with Lightning Claws
I originally thought I would do this one up as John Constantine the Hellblazer, on account of the trenchcoat. But him being blonde made the hair looked far to samey with the trenchcoat and all. So I did the film version instead 😛 I took some pics of the back as well, but they […]Read More The Others: Sloth controller, the man in the trenchcoat.
