One of the reasons I joined the Lead Painters League was that I sometimes need a kick in the seat of my pants to get out of my comfort zone and paint something different. I have over the years amassed a veritable mountain range of minis, alot of which have come from an assortment of […]Read More Lead Painters League Round 5
Chugging along doing terrain and scenery bits. There are still a few items left to do before the immediate vincinity is clear of the stuff… Here is a piece I picked up at Forge World during a visit to GW headquarters back in 1999, right before Mordheim was released. This was before Forge World had […]Read More At the Foothills of Terrain: Roadside Shrine, Bookshelf and Treasure
In a bid to clear some shelf space, I have delved deeper into the foothills of terrain cluttering up the place. We start with the resin Summoning Circle terrain from the Oathsworn Burrows and Badgers: New Blood Kickstarter: The menhirs spell out “Oathsworn” in the elder Futhark (Norse Runic alfabet), here starting at […]Read More More Oathsworn Resin Terrain and other bits
For a change of pace, I have finished some of the more terrainy bits and bobs that have been cluttering up my workspace lately. We start with some of the plastic bits from the Conan boardgame, and that are probably the most Dollhouse furniture of them all. Now we can have a nice Tea Party.

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. Not sure what is supposed to be […]Read More Oathsworn: Clan McFiggin’s Ancient McFiggin
Almost a month has swept past with no new minis painted because life. With my 3D printer currently clogging up every time I try to print and now in stasis awaiting a new nozzle, I thought it might be time to get some terrain done and dusted. We start with somthing that is not 3d […]Read More It’s Terraining Men: The Oathsworn Ruined Tower
For the most part, the last couple of weeks have been spent doing prepwork: The Dungeon Saga minis are now undercoated and ready for some brush action a bunch of Mantic restic kits from the Kings of War kickstarters. God, these take AGES to prep what with the gazillion small pieces, all the big mould […]Read More Prepping the days away
This being a belated catch-up post to round off last year with what I managed to squeeze in the last days of 2015: So…after 100+ hours travelling the Commonwealth and murdering almost every one and every thing I come across, playing the main quest to several different conclusions… I have at last managed to put Fallout […]Read More Unfinished business, or: the remainder of the 2015 painting output.
Oathsworn Miniatures have made a series of resin scatter terrain pieces to go with their Dwarfs and their Burrows and Badgers Kickstarters. They have done everything by themselves, making moulds and casting at home on their dinner table, and sharing the entire process via their excellent updates. Here are the first two bits I have done, the […]Read More Oathsworn Scatter Terrain, part 1: Tents
