One of the things I like about Mars Attacks!, is that they have no qualms about doing crossovers into other IPs. So when Mantic was doing their Mars Attacks! kickstarter, they threw in an option to buy a Martian team for DreadBall, (and cards to use the Mars Attacks! factions in Deadzone as well Yay!). […]Read More The Barsoom Brawlers and Drake Yeev Dragonkin.
14. Drake the Dragon Wargame Drake the Dragon Wargame: Terrax of The Mystics faction. Not much to say about it really. Terrax is a type of Dragonkin, a smaller breed of dragons that are servants to the true dragons that rule the Drake world of Dara. Drake was a kickstarter that delivered one wave of nice minis […]Read More February Painting Resolution, chapter 14. That’s all folks!
Does it count as coming from the shelf of shame if the minis in question were started less than half a year ago? At any rate, these have been cluttering up my workspace, half painted, since May. Now they are finished. Drake the Dragon Wargame, Cherek Hunters. Painted as Frostmen from the Cold Mountain kingdoms. […]Read More Drake Cherek Hunters group finished at last!
One of my favorite minis from the first Drake Kickstarter is The Great Master In the game The Great Master is a Chant Constuct, which means he is summoned to the battlefield during play. This miniature is one of the original pre-kickstarter Drake minis, sculpted by Alex Huntley of Warploque Miniatures. Which […]Read More The Great Master from Drake: the Dragon Wargame
Another old, half painted, uninspired figure from the shelf. A metal Reaper Knight on Foot, The mini istelf is really nice. But for some reason it has been sitting around half-baked for ages. I have also rebased it with a Citadel 20mm base. At any rate, now it is done. There is a similar one […]Read More Off the shelf of shame, part III. Also Drake.
While waiting for more spray-friendly weather to thaw and dry us out, the Drake figures have gone on the back-burner after finishing all the prep. At least I have done one of the little Eyes of Kyran, demon-things: Cute little tyke, no? Although the incessant staring can get a bit annoying at times. Here […]Read More Actually getting something done at last, part 3: Drake and Reaper
Drake is one of the most promising new miniatures games and settings I have seen in quite some time. Fantasy, but very different than your bog-standard Tolkien lookalikes. The concept is that in the land/continent /world of Dara, which mostly is populated by humans and near-humans, the ancient Dragons have awakened. The Dragons are seperated […]Read More First mini painted from Drake: the Dragon Wargame!
I recieved my first Drake box the other day, and I must say first impressions are a bit mixed tending towards underwhelming. There are a few issues, 3 of my little mansized demon things are missing both the face/head part and one arm, and the dragon wth the large, bent over resin piece has some […]Read More The first Drake: the Dragon Wargame shipment has arrived!
