Every once in a while I get the hankering to do some Nolzur’s Marvellous Miniatures. I like the monsters and have bought a few, but I can’t stand the itty bitty truscale of the humans though -they are simply too small for my tastes, the shallow details disappearing beneath the oft-to thick primer. […]Read More The Unspeakable Mouth IV: Xorn!
In the spirit of getting things done, I have just been grabbing some minis off the Trays of miniatures I am going to get round to any day now oh yes for sure that definately is going to happen to paint in parallell with other stuff where I use the same colours. This time I did some more […]Read More Some other Werewolves! (And a Death Dog)
Warming up the 3D printer again, I have revisited a few of the beasts from one of the Axolote Gaming kickstarters. Here is a Death Tyrant, which is an undead Beholder. It should have a smattering of floating, ghostly eyes surrounding it. Not sure how I want to do that though. Maybe bend some pins […]Read More 3D-print: Death Tyrant
In 2018 I did very few large miniatures, being preoccupied with the Bobbybox and the LAF league most of the winter and spring and having my arms out of commission the whole summer. For 2019 I think I want to dedicate to variation. I am far too flighty to stand doing “everything in this army” […]Read More Big Bones: Colossal Skeleton
I think this might be the last post of the year. From the Bones 3 kickstarter: An excellent stand-in for a Great Unclean One or Daemon Prince of Nurgle; a not-Froghemoth, that has now been renamed “77581 Mudgullet” and is slated for release by Reaper this January. I am sure the froghemoth started […]Read More FROGHEMOTH!
A whole year and almost no Bones painted. How did that happen? There are still so many Bones left to paint and the fourth kickstarter is still on track for delivery around next Easter! I have had these kobolds ready to paint since I received the first Bones several years ago. They were part of […]Read More Bones: The Kobolds
aka Abominable Snowmen, aka Yhetees aka shaggy white snow trolls. I chose to base them the same way I do the rest of my minis, in case I actually get around to building an Ogre army sometime in the future. Yeah, I know they are supposed to be called Ogors now, but just no. […]Read More Bones 3: The Yetis
I have been mining my mountains of minis on the hunt for miniatures from last century to paint and enter in The Old School Fantasy Painting Party over on the LAF forum, I have uncovered a few nuggets of golden oldies I would like a crack at. However, whether I can manage to make time to paint […]Read More Beware the Jabberwock, my son (the ancient one!)
The bimonthly resolutionary challenge in the Reaper forums is to get about 4-5 minis painted each month, and also there are some bonus challenges. This February, like last year, one of the bonus challenges is to paint a minature with your fingers. No brushes allowed. And no fingers of other, smaller people either. And it […]Read More The Annual Fingerpainting Challenge!
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 […]Read More Bones 3: Let Dead Dogs Lie
In the third Bones kickstarter, one of the dragons was made available in clear Bones material, in addition to the normal offwhite the Bones usually come in. Naturally, I opted for the clear one. Reiterating how to paint translucent minis: Clearly, it is nessecary to use paints that in themselves are translucent, such as inks […]Read More Bones 3: Kyphrixis the clear dragon
From the Bones 3: Mythos expansion comes the “Camel w/ Pack”. Luckily, the pack-part is loose and fits quite snugly so it is not nessecary to glue it on. This turned out to be a really good thing, as I left the pack on it and went on a few days’ trip. When I came […]Read More Reaper Bones 3: Camel. The miniature, not the cigarettes.
