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!
I took some time out to join the Lead Adventure forums Weird Wars painting club with a nazi zombie. All I had to do as a registered member of the forum was to paint up a single mini and post it to the board before entries reached 100. So here is the #089 Studio Miniatures […]Read More For the Lead Adventure forum Weird Wars painting club
About a year ago, I bought a set of Mantic old convert-your-own sci fi zombies off ebay, and combined with the plague zombie sprues I got from the deadzone kickstarter I spent a day building a ton of them. They have been cluttering up my to do-shelf ever since, only being nickled-and-dimed in small groups, getting […]Read More Space Hurps done for now
