These minis have been giving me nasty looks for some time now, being the only miniatures from the Dungeon Saga kickstarter shipment that I for some reason did not manage to finish way back when I did the rest of them. And I remembered why shortly after starting on this lot…. I found them rather […]Read More Dungeon Saga: The Greenskins, the last of the lot!
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 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
Oh, I could not stay away from those sweet, sweet, Mantic miniatures for long! After all, it has only been just over a year since I received the Star Saga kickstarter first wave shipment…and the second wave arrived recently. Time to get started on these as well. And since Nurgle has been prominent of lately, […]Read More Star Saga: The Plague Victims
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
Woot! The rest of the minis are all done! All of them from Mars Attacks! Blaine, Ron Manning and Judge Dreck-ack-ack! Blaine being the mysterious persona that gets a KS excusive figure in almost every KS Mantic has done, and the Mars Attacks / Judge Dredd crossover mini! (yes, it is a thing!) The helmet […]Read More Bobbybox pt 17: The Mars Attacks remainders
It’s Orctober! Cue token painting of some random orc minis…luckily the next in line from the bobbybox are the rest of the Dungeon Saga Orcs and Goblins. The orclings and the mawbeast were done earlier. Here is the rest of the set. The Armoured Troll The three orcs and the three […]Read More Bobbybox pt 15: Dungeon Saga Orcs and Goblins
Apocalypse Now! (sorry, just had to) The Others: 7 Sins boardgame has an Expansion named Apocalypse. Unsurprisingly, it includes versions of The Four Horsemen…and a …Thing…called Greater Demon of the Apocalypse: They are all large minis. Apocalypse (in case you have not guessed it, the tentacled monstrosity second from the left) is 130mm […]Read More The Others: 7 Sins: Apocalypse!
The third round is done, here is my entry: “Off to off the wizard” The figures are from Reaper Bones KS3, “Chronoscope* Wild West Oz”. Since they all were armed, I see this as a sort of hit squad, hence the title. I based them on 30mm round display bases from Reaper, and I […]Read More Lead Painters League round 3
The fourth round of the Lead Painter’s League has a “support weapon” theme. I painted the following with this in mind, but I ended up entering something else instead. The Sledgehammer BFG by Victoria Miniatures via the Reaper Bones third kickstarter. I have not actually painted any large vehicles or similar kits like this in […]Read More It’s Sledgehammer Time!
