Moving to the Tray of Miniatures that are Prepared And Ready To Paint #42, we come to this little group of Ghouls that are out and about with their Strigoi chaperone. Originally released for Warhammer Fantasy Battles 5th edition back in 1999 (they say 1998 on the slotta tab) 32 of the blighters including one […]Read More Ghouls’ Night Out
I mostly buy GW miniatures second hand or heavily discounted off ebay or forums, especially expensive character models like this one. Of course that means that they sometimes arrive in a state that leaves something to be desired. This one had many broken parts and needed alot of TLC before it was ready to paint. […]Read More Urutaa: Epidemius the Tallyman of Nurgle
Sometimes all I want to do is to Zen out when painting. For this I have found that batch-painting a large unit of whatever is a good way to reach the flow state where the mind is disengaged. This time I did a 20-strong unit of Moria Goblins for my planned Kings of War goblin […]Read More The Zen of Moria Goblin Spearmen
Forge World’s Herald of Nurgle! I like this one so much better than the GW Plaguebearer herald mini, which I think is rather uninspired. Half man, half slug, half robot, all baby sitter! This is the companion piece to the Forge World Daemon Prince of Nurgle I recently painted, and comes in […]Read More Urutaa / Death Guard: Herald of Nurgle
Forge World’s Daemon Prince of Nurgle! I like this one so much better than the GW space marine daemon prince mini. I bought this second hand some time ago, and now that I have looked at the forgeworld site to see what the name of this mini actually is (turns out it is […]Read More Urutaa / Death Guard: Daemon Prince of Nurgle
Nurgle has always been the Chaos power I found most appealing. With the advent of the Death Guard in the 40k 8th ed starter sets, I have started collecting a new 40k Death Guard army. Yeah, well. A massive fail of the willpower throw there. So I have been building loads of the new models, […]Read More Spreading the Disease: Classic Plaguebearers rebased and expanded
Another month with no output…last month was 24 minis less than the target. What time I have had has been spent building death guard and doing prepwork on a lot of soon to be painted minis… So, to start to make up for this apparent lack of progress: The second batch of speedpainted Moria […]Read More More from Moria
Finishing up that lot of skeletons, here are the archers: Ended up being a bit heavy with the drybrushing on the bows, but can’t be bothered to fix them. 12 Skeletons with bows Warhammer Fantasy Battles, undead faction Games Workshop, 1980s and 90s HIPS plastic 30mm bases Painted so far this month: […]Read More And the skeleton archers
I recently bought a lot of 50+ older style plastic Citadel Skeletons off Ebay for less than the price of a single squad of 10 new ones, and have spent a few evenings plonking away at them. When I received the horde in the mail, many of the minis were reduced to parts, with many […]Read More I see a Horde of Skeletons Sauntering Slowly
Down, down to Goblin Town! Time for another stab at the Great Goblin. The first time around, I bungled up the skin colour completely, leaving the Great Goblin a dank, purplish mess. Especially as the thing is mostly skin. Disgusted with my failure, I threw the mini into the Drawer of Shame to fester for many months. […]Read More The Great Goblin of the Misty Mountains
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!
Doing something else: The 20 goblins from The Hobbit: Escape from Goblin Town game set. These were fun to do. all are different from one another. Mustn’t forget Nux with his little friends Barry and Larry, scratching away at his throat… Goblins from The Hobbit: Escape from Goblin Town game set. […]Read More Down, Down, Down in Goblin Town!
