In D&D the Rust Monster is a threat to the Dungeoneers’ precious equipment by it’s ability to rapidly disintegrate into rust powder any metal items it comes near. Other than that, it is quite harmless. From the first Bones kickstarter, the “Oxidation Beast”, so named presumably because Rust Monster is trademarked. For some reason […]Read More Oxidation Beasts: Bones and 3Dprinted
Just a random mini this time, the Stone Giant from the first expansion of the second Bones kickstarter from 2013. Stone Giants are the smallest of the giants, but still much larger than Conan. And have mothers milk that also can be used as spackle. 77336: Stone Giant sculpted by Jason Wiebe […]Read More Bones 2: Stone Giant
Wyrmgear the Clockwork Dragon was a part of the very first Bones kickstarter back in 2012. It has been standing around unpainted and semi-assembled on my Dragon shelf (the top one with extra space for all the wings and such) several years. Some time ago, I pulled it off the shelf and started rusting it […]Read More Big Bones: Grindgear the Corroded, Clockwork Dragon
WizKids make both Nolur’s Marvelous and Pathfinder Deep Cuts miniatures, both similar in style, scale and the primer. These, however, were clear transparent with just their integral bases primed light grey. I started by painting them all over with Army painter Anti-Shine Matte varnish. Then I gave them a wash of Citadel Casandora Yellow […]Read More Deep Cuts Hell Hounds
Three minis that just have been standing around unpainted for some time. This is an extra pair of Skeletons I ordered with the first Bones Kickstarter, that I originally has slated for adding to the base of the Colossal Skeleton back when I was thinking along the lines of making that one into a Kings […]Read More Simple Bones Skeletons
I seem to have some serious first world problems going on… so much stuff, so little time! Several kickstarter pledges have recently arrived and I seem to be running out of space…Where to put all these boxes? More importantly, WHEN to do anything with the contents? I already have several pledges that I have not […]Read More The Others 7 Sins: The Beta and the Omega!
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
