Bobbybox pt 8: 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 […]

The Punishment Due: Crazy Bobby’s Craaazzy Bonanza Box of Craziness!!!!

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 […]

Bones 3: Let Dead Dogs Lie

That all these minis are Reaper Bones might just be a lie. Sorry about the bad pun there.       The Vampiress Lady Illona by Mantic, a character from the cover art of the first edition rule book for Kings of War. I got this with the undead army I bought in the first KoW […]

From the Flesh Eater Courts

I made something in tinkercad for my 3D printer: These are 20mm and 25mm round bases with chamfered edges and a 16mm recess that fits the older Mantic models. You can download the files from Thingiverse. I did not want to build any new minis off the many sprues I got lying about, as the […]

More from Moria

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 […]

Mantic Mummy

From the first Mantic Kings of War kickstarter, they made some Heroically proportioned Mummies. Which was a bit strange, as most other minis were closer to tru-scale 28mm and hence much thinner and with smaller weapons etc. Mantic has never been very consistent with neither scales nor styles. Also, they were much more armed and […]

Flock of Gargoyles

From the clear-some-of-that-crap-off-the-shelf department:   15 Mantic Gargoyles. One group of 10, and another group of 5 that matches the 5 I did last year.  I got 5 Gargoyles as a freebie from the first Kings of War Kickstarter, and it turns out later that unit sizes are 10. And only 10. These other minis […]
