Harlequin Armoured Minotaur

From the same Box of Doom™ as the suspected Marauder Minotaur, this is a Kev White sculpt released by Harlequin Miniatures in the late 90s.     This mini actually has “Kevin White loves his mum and his dad” enscribed under the slab-like rectangular integral base. I probably should have taken a photo of that […]

From the ancient Boxes of Doom™ comes this OIdhammer Minotaur. I am actually not sure of the name or type code. I think it is Marauder and not Citadel, as the early Citadel Minotaurs had slots for slottabases, while this one has a peg for the later, large 40mm square base like the Marauder. I […]

Random mini of the week #2: Adamantite Golem from the defunct Fantasy skirmish game Chronopia, from the end of the 1990s.   Chronopia was produced by Target Games, who also made Warzone, and was in it’s day the only company that might have given Games Workshop a run for the money. Not that the games […]

Oldhammer Skaven Throt the Unclean

Next in line of Oldhammer minis liberated from the clutches of the Drawers of Doom™, is Throt the Unclean. In the lore, this three armed, warpstone-eyed ravenous master mutator has risen to preeminence in Clan Moulder, even to the ranks of the Nine Lords of the Skaven themselves. He looks a bit different today…   […]

Unknown oriental whatsit

I got this metal mini as a part of a trade or lot purchase from a forum some time ago. I have no idea what it really is, or who produced it. I would expect some historical series. Please let me know if you recognize it.   The face is actually not symmetrical and there […]
