aka Abominable Snowmen, aka Yhetees aka shaggy white snow trolls. I chose to base them the same way I do the rest of my minis, in case I actually get around to building an Ogre army sometime in the future. Yeah, I know they are supposed to be called Ogors now, but just no. […]Read More Bones 3: The Yetis
The third round is done, here is my entry: “Off to off the wizard” The figures are from Reaper Bones KS3, “Chronoscope* Wild West Oz”. Since they all were armed, I see this as a sort of hit squad, hence the title. I based them on 30mm round display bases from Reaper, and I […]Read More Lead Painters League round 3
The fourth round of the Lead Painter’s League has a “support weapon” theme. I painted the following with this in mind, but I ended up entering something else instead. The Sledgehammer BFG by Victoria Miniatures via the Reaper Bones third kickstarter. I have not actually painted any large vehicles or similar kits like this in […]Read More It’s Sledgehammer Time!
The bimonthly resolutionary challenge in the Reaper forums is to get about 4-5 minis painted each month, and also there are some bonus challenges. This February, like last year, one of the bonus challenges is to paint a minature with your fingers. No brushes allowed. And no fingers of other, smaller people either. And it […]Read More The Annual Fingerpainting Challenge!
I am taking a break from the bobbybox for a few weeks to recharge the enthusiasm (or sheer stubborness) needed to continue with those minis. So getting back to Shadows of Brimstone, here is the last of the 30mm based minis I have from the wave 1.5 shipment. Only the XL Darkstone Hydra and the […]Read More Intermission: Snakes, Pork, and Shrubbery
A change of pace today. Since doing the Bobbybox plague minis, I have been rummaging a bit through the boxes of Deadzone minis, and I have dug up some old fossils… The imposing 1st generation plague victim. What happens is that the first person to get infected by the Plague in a given cycle, turns into […]Read More And now for something slightly different
…5 Gooooolden Rings! ‘Tis the first week of Christmas, and time is scarce in the face of working at a shop and my sons birthday celebrations. But I have managed to squeeze some painting in now and then, resulting in these: First, a recap of how to deal with translucent minis: Clear minis […]Read More Shadows of 7 Sins and see-through minis
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
In the third Bones kickstarter, one of the dragons was made available in clear Bones material, in addition to the normal offwhite the Bones usually come in. Naturally, I opted for the clear one. Reiterating how to paint translucent minis: Clearly, it is nessecary to use paints that in themselves are translucent, such as inks […]Read More Bones 3: Kyphrixis the clear dragon
The Thing. Last seen on an Antarctic research station…At least that is what this makes me think of. So naturally, I painted it in fleshy tones to make is as horrid as can be. Strange plant life around here… Now, start rolling for Sanity Loss. 77521 Gravewailer Reaper miniatures Bones 3 KS Mythos […]Read More Reaper Bones 3: Gravewailer aka The Thing
From the Bones 3: Mythos expansion comes the “Camel w/ Pack”. Luckily, the pack-part is loose and fits quite snugly so it is not nessecary to glue it on. This turned out to be a really good thing, as I left the pack on it and went on a few days’ trip. When I came […]Read More Reaper Bones 3: Camel. The miniature, not the cigarettes.
77341: Lions A pair of big cats from the second Bones Kickstarter campaign Expansion set #1. That expansion was a seemingly random collection of different minis, these were the only “natural” creatures it it. The camera washes out the colours even though I have reduced the wossitsname that makes it less washed out as […]Read More Bones 2: The Lions +The Controller of Greed
