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!
Not too much time dedicated to painting anything this week, but I did manage to get the vehicles from the Bobbybox done. These were all from Warpath, and included an old school Orx Raptor trike and three new-school (is that even an expression?) Veermyn Tunnel Runner monowheel-things. While I was at it, I decided to […]Read More Bobbybox pt 13: The Vehicles (and another one)
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 spent a couple weeks without painting much. Time to continue chipping away at the Bobbybox. Now we come to the The Mars Attacks! Martians. My eyesight is not what it once was, and I found I struggled mightly with the smaller details such as eyes on these. In the end I gave up […]Read More Bobbybox part 9: The Mars Attacks! Martians
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!
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
A change of pace today. Since doing the Bobbybox plague minis, I have been rummaging a bit through the boxes of Deadzone minis, and I have dug up some old fossils… The imposing 1st generation plague victim. What happens is that the first person to get infected by the Plague in a given cycle, turns into […]Read More And now for something slightly different
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
The Plague. A virus-like alien condition that invades and takes charge of an unsuspecting host, causing growth to parts of the body, thereby changing said host to make it much stronger than before. The earlier one gets infected, the more alien and changed one becomes. The first and second generation are massive hulking beasts with […]Read More Bobbybox, pt V: The Plague
…5 Gooooolden Rings! ‘Tis the first week of Christmas, and time is scarce in the face of working at a shop and my sons birthday celebrations. But I have managed to squeeze some painting in now and then, resulting in these: First, a recap of how to deal with translucent minis: Clear minis […]Read More Shadows of 7 Sins and see-through minis
