At the Mountains of Minis: The Unspeakable Mouth

This month I have been at the Mountains of Minis, attacking them with gusto, having done mould-line carving, scrubbing, boiling, assembling etc a large portion of the roughly 20-ish minis I got in the Bones 2 shipment. And sacrificing the required amounts of fingerblood, of course.

Seeing as I am momentarily sick of the bendy bones, I have painted some metal minis for a change.

Hereby I present a new series entitled The Unspeakable Mouth
Which showcases minis with slightly overstated eating orifices (well, what did you think it would be about?)
1: Chainmail “Abyssal Maw”

150614 abyssal maw b 150614 abyssal maw a 150614 abyssal maw c

From “Chainmail” the year 2002 Dungeons and Dragons metal miniature line by Wizards of the Coast (when they tried to emulate Games Workshop in size and somewhat in style). Chainmail had a few nice minis and several bad ones.

The game was not a resounding success, and was replaced the following year by the “Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures Game”, with prepainted plastic minis in random booster packs.

Metal, 30mm base.

2. Hell Dorado “Damned One of Gluttony”

This is actually two versions of the same character:

Before it eats some of the opposition:

150614 gluttony  small b  150614 gluttony  small a 150614 gluttony  small c

and after it gets to stuff its greedy face:

150614 gluttony large a 150614 gluttony large b 150614 gluttony large c

The Damned One of Gluttony is manifestation of one of the Seven Sins, and a part of the Demon faction. Also not a nice person to have over for dinner.

Metal, 40mm base.

So that’s a massive three completed minis so far this month.

More knights of the Lost Crusade

At last, here is the next part of that unit of skeletons, bringing them up to 25 plus 4 dograts. All that is needed now is a standard bearer. And 10 more skeletons to make a horde.

141030 lost crusaders 3 141030 lost crusaders 4

and then this thing, a “Battered Skeletal Troll” from Chainmail, the 90s metal D&D miniatures line from Wizards of the Coast: If my memory serves me right.

141030 skeletal troll

In other news, I have recently bought a new airbrush as the old one had not survived many years of storage in a damp cellar.

Then I had to remodel my little room of minis (=mancave) so now I can actually use said airbrush when the urge takes me.

So now most of the (rather many) prepped minis are primed and ready to paint!
