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
I had a spurt of painting the minis from Warhammer Quest: The Silver Tower boardgame some months ago, but many miniatures have been languishing unpainted. I thought it time to take up a bit of the slack, as it were. First up is the coven of Kairic Acolytes. These are the Chanters of Change, cultits […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: The Kairic Acolytes
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
Another month with no output…last month was 24 minis less than the target. What time I have had has been spent building death guard and doing prepwork on a lot of soon to be painted minis… So, to start to make up for this apparent lack of progress: The second batch of speedpainted Moria […]Read More More from Moria
Finishing up that lot of skeletons, here are the archers: Ended up being a bit heavy with the drybrushing on the bows, but can’t be bothered to fix them. 12 Skeletons with bows Warhammer Fantasy Battles, undead faction Games Workshop, 1980s and 90s HIPS plastic 30mm bases Painted so far this month: […]Read More And the skeleton archers
I recently bought a lot of 50+ older style plastic Citadel Skeletons off Ebay for less than the price of a single squad of 10 new ones, and have spent a few evenings plonking away at them. When I received the horde in the mail, many of the minis were reduced to parts, with many […]Read More I see a Horde of Skeletons Sauntering Slowly
Down, down to Goblin Town! Time for another stab at the Great Goblin. The first time around, I bungled up the skin colour completely, leaving the Great Goblin a dank, purplish mess. Especially as the thing is mostly skin. Disgusted with my failure, I threw the mini into the Drawer of Shame to fester for many months. […]Read More The Great Goblin of the Misty Mountains
I have for some time been collecting loads of Lord of the Rings goblins and orcs, almost enough to make a Kings of War army…or two. I need to get some cavalry and such though. But for some reason I have not really goten round to actually start painting them. Gahd, there are alot! Methinks […]Read More Moria Goblin …Spitters?
Almost a whole month has come and gone without me touching brush to mini. So to get back on track I chose do some minis that are quick and easy. First up are what I have left of the Warhammer Quest Giant Rats. I have only found 7 of the original 12, as […]Read More Nothing done this last month…so here are some rats
Last year I bought a unit of unbuilt Chaos Hounds off Ebay on a whim. Which turned out to have no bases and missing a horn. Sigh. When you buy on the cheap, youse gets whats youse gets. First I stuck them on square cavalry bases, but that looked just wrong. I think I have […]Read More A bit about base 3D printing; also Cry Havoc! And let slip the Hounds of Chaos!
Every few months I get the itch for some Chaos Marines. Good thing I have the minis from Dark Vengeance set lying about to scratch with. Here is the third one of the squad I have completed. They take ages to do, with all the busy details, so the squad will probably be finished sometime […]Read More Dark Vengeance: Chaos Marine with Lightning Claws
The second and third Spirit Hosts from the Malignants starter set I bought some time ago. Their small joints did not appreciate my heavy-handed drybrushing of these models, and so they kept breaking apart, needing repairs. Again and again. Argh! Malignant models indeed! I do not like to paint larger models identically, but […]Read More Minivember: Newhammer Spirit Hosts
