Picking up work on the rest of the bobbybox miniatures, untouched since before Easter(!), here are the contents of the Skeleton Troop Sprue all done: 10 skeleton infantry, a skeletal dog (or is it a rat), and the top of a skeleton dragging itself up from the grave I already have (the start […]Read More Bobbybox pt 14: Skeletons of the Lost Crusade
So I have not painted anything since early June due to tendonitis in both arms. Now, at last, my arms are better, and I can get back to some painting. However, my IRL circumstances have recently changed and this will cut seriously back on my free time the rest of this and the first half of […]Read More Easy does it. Getting back into it.
The seventh round was the quarter finals, featuring just the top 8 on the leaderboard after round 6. I was chuffed to be one of the quarterfinalists. This round had a compulsory Historical theme, “Round 7 – Explorers, settlers and pioneers. A team comprising a party of historical explorers, settlers or pioneers. From Conquistadors to […]Read More Lead Painters League round 7
The second round is over, and here is my entry: The Hog Wild Crew from the game Malifaux by Wyrd Games. Warning: I don’t play Malifaux, but I do love these minis. Apologies in advance about any in-game mistakes I might make here. These are the entire contents of the boxed set called “Hog […]Read More Lead Painters League second round
…5 Gooooolden Rings! ‘Tis the first week of Christmas, and time is scarce in the face of working at a shop and my sons birthday celebrations. But I have managed to squeeze some painting in now and then, resulting in these: First, a recap of how to deal with translucent minis: Clear minis […]Read More Shadows of 7 Sins and see-through minis
I had a spurt of painting the minis from Warhammer Quest: The Silver Tower boardgame some months ago, but many miniatures have been languishing unpainted. I thought it time to take up a bit of the slack, as it were. First up is the coven of Kairic Acolytes. These are the Chanters of Change, cultits […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: The Kairic Acolytes
Just a few years ago, someone* wrote in their results statements thingy** that 3D-printing miniatures is not in any way a threat to the miniatures industry: “We know quite a lot about 3-D printers, having been at the forefront of the technology for many years. We know of what we speak. One day 3-D printers […]Read More 3Dprint: Gorilla
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!
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
The second and third Spirit Hosts from the Malignants starter set I bought some time ago. Their small joints did not appreciate my heavy-handed drybrushing of these models, and so they kept breaking apart, needing repairs. Again and again. Argh! Malignant models indeed! I do not like to paint larger models identically, but […]Read More Minivember: Newhammer Spirit Hosts
And the award for most pretentious name given to a class of model 2016 goes to… The Ogroid Thaumaturge! ’cause GW can’t own the more classic Ogre Mage. (“Traumaturge” would have been a great name for this one) After a harrying time fighting through the streets beating up all the little girls and beefy men around […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: Blanka, the Ogroid Thaumaturge
This month I have been painting just small drips and dabs here and there in between everything else in what little time I have had for such things. So I have not really been able to do all that much. But I did get few hours in yesterday, and so I managed to actually finish […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: Skaven Deathrunners
