This last month I have been intermittently plonking away at the remainder of the Abyssals from the Dungeon Saga Kickstarter. I had this idea when pledging that these minis would be forming the start of a Kings of War army. I ordered two extra sets of the Abyssals so I would have 5 sets of […]Read More SideQuest: Dungeon Saga: Abyssals
I have not posted for a while as I have been off on holiday to sunny Spain. And then I came home to Norway with a lovely freezing -11 degrees below C and a thick carpet of snow that needed to be shovelled away by hand. Hurrah! But before I left I completed the remaining […]Read More Bobbybox pt 8: Abyssals
I am taking a break from the bobbybox for a few weeks to recharge the enthusiasm (or sheer stubborness) needed to continue with those minis. So getting back to Shadows of Brimstone, here is the last of the 30mm based minis I have from the wave 1.5 shipment. Only the XL Darkstone Hydra and the […]Read More Intermission: Snakes, Pork, and Shrubbery
Polishing off the rest of the elves from the bobbybox today. These were done in much the same fashion as the spearmen: Basecoated with Vallejo Model Air French Blue (I have made a mistake and written the wrong name of the paint in the earlier post, sorry about that. I can feel my memory going, […]Read More Bobbybox pt 7: Elven Bowmen regiment and the DS Mawbeast
These last couple weeks I have been down and out with seasonal Manflu. Urgh. Must have been those Plague minis. So I have not been able or in the mood to paint much, and what I did do, took ages longer than usual. When I first saw the Mantic Elves these minis struck me as […]Read More Bobbybox, pt 6: Quick Elves spearmen troop + Orclings
Every year, Mantic games does a so-called “crazy box” which basically is a mystery box of “random” miniatures -older miniatures that are not selling very well and that clutter up their warehouse- at presumably a steep discount if one were to calculate the retail prices of the contents. This year, Mantic offer up their normal […]Read More The Punishment Due: Crazy Bobby’s Craaazzy Bonanza Box of Craziness!!!!
I had this idea to jumpstart my Abyssal Kings of War army with the Dungeon Saga minis. So I ordered extra of the Abyssals set, netting me 5 of each instead of 3 of each. But in KoW, what use is 5 of infantry? On too large bases? Damn it all to Hell! ;P […]Read More Dungeon Saga Tortured Souls
This model has been sitting around unpainted on my desk for ages and ages, getting in the way and generally making a nuisance of itself. Time to wash it out of my hair, as it were. The internet seems full of slams of this mini, both the aesthetics and the quality of the casting. […]Read More Dungeon Saga: Karrathor, the Tyrant of Halpi!
As the top dog of the Abyssal forces of the Infernal Crypts expansion, Drech’Nok the Destoyer! Your basic red skinned demon lord. This will be the typical look for the abyssal forces. Since they are so very stereotypical devils, I think the red is entirely appropriate, even if “it has been done”. Tim Curry at […]Read More Dungeon Saga Infernal Crypts: Drech’Nok the Destroyer
My unfinished Dungeon Saga minis has not seen any love for some time now. I have the contents of three Expansions to go, The Warlord of Galahir with the Orcs, Goblins and Trolls; The Infernal Crypts with all the abyssal demons ( and I got an extra set of them for some reason. Oh yes, […]Read More Dungeon Saga revisited: The Warlord of Galahir
The last of the Dungeon Saga base set minis: So that is the Dungeon Saga base game completed. Several expansions to go. Time for a break from those, and to do other stuff for a while. I seem to only have finished 20 minis in April…and it’s already over a week into May and only […]Read More Dungeon Saga Zombie Troll Shaman
Trolls. That also are zombies. What’s not to love? These were fun. Great big zombies with massive upper bodies, lots of muscles and the trademark Mantic itty bitty legs. I repositioned the arms a bit with the hot water method. I meant the green one to have it’s hands closer together, but […]Read More Dungeon Saga Zombie Trolls
