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 […]Read More Bones 3: Let Dead Dogs Lie
I made something in tinkercad for my 3D printer: These are 20mm and 25mm round bases with chamfered edges and a 16mm recess that fits the older Mantic models. You can download the files from Thingiverse. I did not want to build any new minis off the many sprues I got lying about, as the […]Read More From the Flesh Eater Courts
Back in March 2013 I made a post about the Mantic Revenant Knights, (well, it was actually more about the restic material they are made of than about the minis -the knights were some of the first restic minis I had seen and I had just struggled with building them). …and now, in April 2017, […]Read More KoW Undead Mounted Revenant Knights, part 2
A kickstarter exclusive from the Kings of War 2 KS. I painted this mini for the Reaper forums bimonthly resolutionary painting challenge first bonus challenge, which is simply to paint a mini in a jumping/springing pose. This is a rendition of Ronnie Renton the owner/ leader/ director of Mantic Games as Ronaldo the Bard. […]Read More Ronnie the Bard
One of the more interesting items from the Mars Attacks! kickstarter is the burning cattle token that got upgraded to a mini. “Burning cattle” as in a herd of stampeding cows on fire. Yes, on fire as if they were hit with a heat ray, setting the subcuteous fat alight. Oh those Martians are utterly evil. […]Read More Flaming Cows!
These are made in translucent blue plastic. (unlike their MVP. FFS!) Only Jacks and Guards. It would seem that they are wearing bikinis. Go underwear league! I enhanced the blue with Vallejo blue ink, and then a light drybrush with light blue. Dark redbrown details with a pale orange over, and Army Painter Red Quickshade […]Read More …and the DreadBall Crystallan Team
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 […]Read More DreadBall MVP Crypt. AKA Ben Grimm
I had this idea to jumpstart my Abyssal Kings of War army with the Dungeon Saga minis. So I ordered extra of the Abyssals set, netting me 5 of each instead of 3 of each. But in KoW, what use is 5 of infantry? On too large bases? Damn it all to Hell! ;P […]Read More Dungeon Saga Tortured Souls
Time to speed up the PJs and get something done before the month’s end: These are originally translucent blue. I wanted them to be greenish instead, which was easily accomplised with some vallejo green ink. Dot in some details and Hey, presto! Bases as per my standard recognize-your-DreadBall-team-positions colour scheme, red for guard, yellow […]Read More DreadBall: The Ada-Lorana Team and Phantasm MVP
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 […]Read More Mantic Mummy
Today’s first Semi-Random mini: Brai..ackackack..ns!! It would seem even Martians can contract the T-virus. A fun mini, quick and easy to do.

This model has been sitting around unpainted on my desk for ages and ages, getting in the way and generally making a nuisance of itself. Time to wash it out of my hair, as it were. The internet seems full of slams of this mini, both the aesthetics and the quality of the casting. […]Read More Dungeon Saga: Karrathor, the Tyrant of Halpi!
