Early last year, I pledged for the Circle of Chaos Warband by Curtis Fell of Ramshackle Games fame, but I did not add on for the Rhinotaur at that time. …So when I received the original 7 minis of the Circle, I kicked myself for not adding it on. The minis were weird-in-a-good-way designs by […]Read More Enter the Rhinotaur, completing the Circle of Chaos Warband!
Plonking away at the backlog of wave 1.5 Shadows of Brimstone minis. The Custodians of Targa are spidery robotic servant caretaker automatons, reminiscent of the Dwarven Spider Guardians from Skyrim. The similarities are more than superficial; these are also leftovers of an ancient civilisation that has dissappeared, and patrol the empty halls of their builders, […]Read More Shadows of Brimstone: Custodians of Targa
For a change of pace, I have finished some of the more terrainy bits and bobs that have been cluttering up my workspace lately. We start with some of the plastic bits from the Conan boardgame, and that are probably the most Dollhouse furniture of them all. Now we can have a nice Tea Party. […]Read More Furnishing the Doll’s Dungeon
Late last year, Midlam Miniatures ran a Kickstarter for “The Cultists of the Kraken Lord”, consisting of 10 betentacled, becloaked and bedraggled figures of different aspect, all with a face full of Chtulhuesqe tentacles. And as I am a sucker for tentacles, naturally I just had to have them! One and a half quick and […]Read More The Cultists of the Kraken Lord
Been off on my summer holiday, and so have not been painting this last fortnight or so. We begin with: From the 2013 Heroes Kickstarter by Oathsworn Miniatures. Ricky Marrow the Halfling Ninja: Because all proper ninjas wear red sashes or headbands! Classic movies aside, I am planning to try to work through the […]Read More Oathsworn Heroes: The Ninja of Hobbiton!
The abominations of Sloth. As soon as I saw these, I knew what the inspiration for the colour scheme would be: They would have been a better fit if they were abominations of Gluttony, but they are not, so there we are. These also will do double duty as Beasts of Nurgle, or […]Read More The Others: 7 Sins: Abominations of Sloth (aka Slimer!)
The Avatar of Sloth will also double as a Daemon Prince of Nurgle. Why I chose such a bright green colour scheme should become clear when I post the Abominations. Avatar of Sloth The Others: 7 Sins board game base set Guillotine Games / Studio McVey Rigid PVC 45mm integral base […]Read More The Others: 7 Sins: Avatar of Sloth
Marguerite, Dr Gan, and Flay, the three “normal” humans remaining to paint from the Hell Club are probably the least good miniatures when it comes to shallowness and softness of the details in the entire game. Don’t get me wrong, the overall quality of the minis in this game is very high for PVC minis. […]Read More The Others: 7 Sins: Hell Club completed
Mr Furious, he who looks back in anger: I debated with myself a bit whether to do him like the Hulk, but ended up thinking I want to keep the Sins’ avatars and Abominations in similar colour schemes to make them easier to recognize in game. And as I already did the Wrath abominations […]Read More The Others: 7 Sins: Avatar of Wrath
Something inspirational to listen to for this The Avatar would be a Greater Daemon in another game. The Avatars are the main reason I jumped into the kickstarter campaign. I found the …different… take on the Sins appealing, and I like larger minis and weird monsters. So that was an immediate pledge from me. […]Read More The Others: 7 Sins: The Avatar of Greed
