There has been a lot of terrain done up lately, as I am still pressing on with getting some of the many ancient resin terrain pieces I have table ready. and going forward I expect to do a few pieces in between miniatures ever so often. I have a bunch of them cluttering up my […]Read More Terraining: Grendel Mushrooms and Armorcast Alien Plant Piece
Space…the final frontier. These are the voyages….yeah, you know the rest. And these little grey aliens in Bones from the second KS. Just had to do them like the Blue Man Group were cosplaying some modern era Star Trek: Away Team, Command: Captain leading the away team, wearing the red shirt of command. What can […]Read More To baldly go where no small blue alien has gone before!
The second blob of minis off the shelf today is 12 more of the Mantic Sci Fi Zombie Space Hurps conversions: I really, really need to look into better photography. At any rate, that makes 43 of those zombies done in all. 15-20 or so to go. I must admit they are getting a bit […]Read More Space Hurps part the fifth.
This month I have been at the Mountains of Minis, attacking them with gusto, having done mould-line carving, scrubbing, boiling, assembling etc a large portion of the roughly 20-ish minis I got in the Bones 2 shipment. And sacrificing the required amounts of fingerblood, of course. Seeing as I am momentarily sick of the bendy […]Read More At the Mountains of Minis: The Unspeakable Mouth
So the new years resolutions are as follows: 1. Not to buy any miniatures (ebay or otherwise) apart from kickstarters unless said miniatures are funded by my own ebay sales. So far, so good. Have bought the one box of the old mantic space zombies conversion set and today I received a set of Wargames Factory […]Read More Space Hurps and the Resolutionary Painting Challenge; January!
An ancient Warhammer Chaos Dwarf from the time Chaos Dwarfs had a lot of individual character and were not identical sumerian curlybeards. Test paint scheme for my Warhammer 40k Dark Venegance Chaos Marines. Yup, got that set when it was new, been lying around ever since. The Dark Vengeance-miniatures are really characterful. Looking forward […]Read More more off the shelf, and a pair of unknowns
Shooting and looting on the moon of Elpis seriously eats up what little time I have. Not much done these last few weeks. The Human Centipede can go home. This is the definition of “Body Horror”. Hell Dorado Flesh Demon. Hell Dorado certainly has some great and disturbing minis. 50mm base. Also good as a […]Read More Too much Borderlands, not enough painting…
Reaper make several Cthuloid monsters in the Bones material, such as this one: 77113: Eldritch Demon (50mm base) aka Cthulhu Again, simple drybrushing on black undercoat. No washes or advanced techniques. This is practice for the big one…Ph’ngui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagnRead More Small Old One
Moving on through the shelf of half-abandoned minis, we get to the Papa Growler. This is not the biggest, I believe I should have an even larger one in a more impressive pose lying around somewhere. But I have not seen it for quite some years. Going to need to do a little search mission […]Read More National day off = painted Growler
Another month, another blog post. Being bogged down by work for several weeks has left little time for playing around with miniatures, and nothing new to show off here on the blog. Mostly I can grab half an hour here and half an hour there and often just som prep. Sometimes I find that it […]Read More Off the shelf of shame, chapter IV: A New Hope
So here he is done: a bit of a struggle at the end, it must be said. I tried some flame patterns, but no. also a Nazizombie: Nazizombies really are the perfect villains. This is a metal figure made by Reaper. As Dead Snow 2 is premiering soon, the advertising blitz is on. […]Read More Luciphuzz done
