Bones 3: Let Dead Dogs Lie

That all these minis are Reaper Bones might just be a lie. Sorry about the bad pun there.       The Vampiress Lady Illona by Mantic, a character from the cover art of the first edition rule book for Kings of War. I got this with the undead army I bought in the first KoW […]

DreadBall MVP Crypt. AKA Ben Grimm

The Season six Crystallans are made in translucent blue plastic. But not the MVP. (as with the Ada-Lorana MVP. Again, WTF Mantic!?! I am sure there is some practical production reason, But FFS! How much more could it possibly have cost to make these moulds together with the teams, or even just shoot these minis […]

Mantic Mummy

From the first Mantic Kings of War kickstarter, they made some Heroically proportioned Mummies. Which was a bit strange, as most other minis were closer to tru-scale 28mm and hence much thinner and with smaller weapons etc. Mantic has never been very consistent with neither scales nor styles. Also, they were much more armed and […]

And only 10. These other minis […]

God, these take AGES to prep what with the gazillion small pieces, all the big mould […]

The Mighty Z’zor!

This one had been on the shelf of the half-done for ages, the MVP for the DreadBall Z’zor team. The pun should be obvious. He started out as the same too-bright green and red paint scheme I did the Z’zor team in, and dressed him up as the Odinson. Verily! Oh well, the idea was […]

Bonecrabs!

The miniatures board game Sedition Wars: The Battle for Alabaster Station from McVey Studios did have a lot of nice miniatures even though it had a lot of problems. The Strain, a kind of plague (or alien virus whatever) that reanimates dead tissue shaping a series of horrifying stages of adversaries from zombie to full blown […]
