One of the reasons I joined the Lead Painters League was that I sometimes need a kick in the seat of my pants to get out of my comfort zone and paint something different. I have over the years amassed a veritable mountain range of minis, alot of which have come from an assortment of […]Read More Lead Painters League Round 5
It has been a busy week with not much time for hobby, so this post is later than it might have been. Round 4 of the Lead Painter’s League had the optional theme of a support weapon with at least four crew. Here is my entry: This is a Goblin Man-Mangler by Crooked Claw […]Read More Lead Painters League round 4

Nurgle has always been the Chaos power I found most appealing. With the advent of the Death Guard in the 40k 8th ed starter sets, I have started collecting a new 40k Death Guard army. Yeah, well. A massive fail of the willpower throw there. So I have been building loads of the new models, […]Read More Spreading the Disease: Classic Plaguebearers rebased and expanded
Early last year, I pledged for the Circle of Chaos Warband by Curtis Fell of Ramshackle Games fame, but I did not add on for the Rhinotaur at that time. …So when I received the original 7 minis of the Circle, I kicked myself for not adding it on. The minis were weird-in-a-good-way designs by […]Read More Enter the Rhinotaur, completing the Circle of Chaos Warband!
Every so often I go down into the musty cellar to go snorkeling in the old boxes o’ minis just to rediscover some of the many minis I have forgotten I own. And every time I resurface with a few interesting minis that go into my “need to prep” pile. Some months later, I might […]Read More From Ye Pile of Olde: RAFM Earth Elemental
After I got my 3D printer I have been printing off a bunch of lipped bases in different sizes to do my random minis up. So naturally, some of my random little minis get based every once in a while. Such as these little darlings: These are mounted on 20mm bases. […]Read More Two snotlings and a baby squig
Late last year, Midlam Miniatures ran a Kickstarter for “The Cultists of the Kraken Lord”, consisting of 10 betentacled, becloaked and bedraggled figures of different aspect, all with a face full of Chtulhuesqe tentacles. And as I am a sucker for tentacles, naturally I just had to have them! One and a half quick and […]Read More The Cultists of the Kraken Lord

Classic movies aside, I am planning to try to work through the […]Read More Oathsworn Heroes: The Ninja of Hobbiton!
I follow the Lead Adventure Forum and like to participate in their intermittent painting clubs. They run 2 or 3 a year, and any member may participate by paiting up and posting an image of a single miniature that fits the theme of the club. Max 1 per participant each day until 100 posts altogether […]Read More The not-actually Napoleonic mini
From ye pile of olde! I rediscovered this metal mini in one of my stored basement boxes the other day. I have no idea why I did not paint it back in the day. One quick paint job later: 02712: Eye Beast Reaper Miniatures sculpted by Julie Guthrie white metal 40mm base […]Read More Isle of the Beholders: Reaper metal Eye Beast
Back in 2013, Oathsworn had a kickstarter for a range of oldhammery heroes, with dwarves, halflings, and a few monsters like the efreet and shambling mound that I have painted earlier. I am very slowly getting round to them, one at a time: This is Tardog Wolfskinner, Ogre vagabond from that set. Full of that […]Read More Oathsworn Heroes: Tardog Wolfskinner, Ogre vagabond
