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 second round is over, and here is my entry: The Hog Wild Crew from the game Malifaux by Wyrd Games. Warning: I don’t play Malifaux, but I do love these minis. Apologies in advance about any in-game mistakes I might make here. These are the entire contents of the boxed set called “Hog […]Read More Lead Painters League second round
These last few weeks I have not posted anything here on my painting blog, as I have been busy with real life and have chosen to enter the Lead Painters League season 12 on the Lead Adventure Forum The league rules boil down to a minimum of 6 rounds of weekly entries, each entry consisting […]Read More Entering The Lead Painters League season 12
Not too much time dedicated to painting anything this week, but I did manage to get the vehicles from the Bobbybox done. These were all from Warpath, and included an old school Orx Raptor trike and three new-school (is that even an expression?) Veermyn Tunnel Runner monowheel-things. While I was at it, I decided to […]Read More Bobbybox pt 13: The Vehicles (and another one)
The time has come for the Warpath Orx Marauder Command figures, and the Kings of War Goblin Spitters. There were two sprues of the old Marauder Orx Command, each with parts to make two miniatures plus extras for the bits box. When Mantic first was set up, they had a clear made-for-Warhammer-but-much-cheaper-to-buy profile. The Mantic minis […]Read More Bobbybox pt 12: The Warpath Orx, and KoW Goblin Spitters
Powering on with the Bobbybox, we come to the DeadZone Marauders. I got 5 Orx Commandos and 2 Goblin snipers. In the Warpath universe shared by the DeadZone game, the Marauders are green-skinned, brutish-looking aliens that are highly disciplined militaristic mercenaries that function both as shock troops for corporations and also follow their own agenda. A […]Read More Bobbybox pt 11: The DeadZone Marauders
Easter and a day or two off from work and all that. At last some time to get some serious painting in. We continue the Bobbybox saga with some Deadzone Rebs minis. In the bobbybox there were 4 little bags of Rebs minis, totalling 10 minis in two sets of 5 identical pairs. As […]Read More Bobbybox pt 10: The DeadZone Rebs
This last month I have been intermittently plonking away at the remainder of the Abyssals from the Dungeon Saga Kickstarter. I had this idea when pledging that these minis would be forming the start of a Kings of War army. I ordered two extra sets of the Abyssals so I would have 5 sets of […]Read More SideQuest: Dungeon Saga: Abyssals
I have spent a couple weeks without painting much. Time to continue chipping away at the Bobbybox. Now we come to the The Mars Attacks! Martians. My eyesight is not what it once was, and I found I struggled mightly with the smaller details such as eyes on these. In the end I gave up […]Read More Bobbybox part 9: The Mars Attacks! Martians
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 have not posted for a while as I have been off on holiday to sunny Spain. And then I came home to Norway with a lovely freezing -11 degrees below C and a thick carpet of snow that needed to be shovelled away by hand. Hurrah! But before I left I completed the remaining […]Read More Bobbybox pt 8: Abyssals
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
