In the spirit of getting things done, I have just been grabbing some minis off the Trays of miniatures I am going to get round to any day now oh yes for sure that definately is going to happen to paint in parallell with other stuff where I use the same colours. This time I did some more […]Read More Some other Werewolves! (And a Death Dog)
In 2018 I did very few large miniatures, being preoccupied with the Bobbybox and the LAF league most of the winter and spring and having my arms out of commission the whole summer. For 2019 I think I want to dedicate to variation. I am far too flighty to stand doing “everything in this army” […]Read More Big Bones: Colossal Skeleton
I think this might be the last post of the year. From the Bones 3 kickstarter: An excellent stand-in for a Great Unclean One or Daemon Prince of Nurgle; a not-Froghemoth, that has now been renamed “77581 Mudgullet” and is slated for release by Reaper this January. I am sure the froghemoth started […]Read More FROGHEMOTH!
A whole year and almost no Bones painted. How did that happen? There are still so many Bones left to paint and the fourth kickstarter is still on track for delivery around next Easter! I have had these kobolds ready to paint since I received the first Bones several years ago. They were part of […]Read More Bones: The Kobolds
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
