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.

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.

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
Oathsworn’s fourth kickstarter project was Clan McFiggin, a set of 12 dwarf brewers, back in 2014. Time to get this party started! This is Ancient McFiggin, the eldest of the lot, and presumably prime taster for the brewery. There is something strange going on with his mouth.
