I remember when, during a dungeon crawling AD&D session a lifetime ago, we entered a part of the dungeon where the corridors were spotlessly clean but for a sign saying “Meet the Cleaner” or something to that effect. And a transparent, quivering wall moving towards us at speed… It ended badly for our party even […]Read More Bones 2: Gelatinous Cube
First, some music: Sometimes I come across a mini I just adore the concept of. This is a golem or contruct made out of gravestones, broken bits of mausoleums, bone fragments and skulls and with Nightmare before Christmas -style cast iron gates for wings! A useful construct for when Necromancy does not make hard enough […]Read More Bones 3: Cemetary Golem
There has been a lot of terrain done up lately, as I am still pressing on with getting some of the many ancient resin terrain pieces I have table ready. and going forward I expect to do a few pieces in between miniatures ever so often. I have a bunch of them cluttering up my […]Read More Terraining: Grendel Mushrooms and Armorcast Alien Plant Piece
The last week or so I have been prepping Bones from the third kickstarter. I have spent enough hours this weekend undercoating with my airbrush to get welts on my trigger finger. There are so many of them! Setting up my airbrush is a bit of a bother and I have to sit out in […]Read More Bones 3: Mystic Circle aka Stonehenge jr.
This is a pair of terrain pieces that appeared in the Bones 3 pledge manager as was as far as I remember not actually a part of the Bones 3 KS campaign. Naturally, as it was called “Statue of Dagon” I had to have it. I kept the painting simple, as I want […]Read More Bones 3: Statue of Dagon
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
We begin with some fitting music: The Bones 3 kickstarter shipment arrived at long last! Hoody Hoo! Which also means I have been in a frenzy of difficult mould line removal, scrubbing little white rubbery plastic bits in warm soapy water, dipping said bits in boiling hot water then cold to unbend bits here […]Read More Bones 3! The Air Elementals
Early last year, I pledged for the Circle of Chaos Warband by Curtis Fell of Ramshackle Games fame, but I did not add on for the Rhinotaur at that time. …So when I received the original 7 minis of the Circle, I kicked myself for not adding it on. The minis were weird-in-a-good-way designs by […]Read More Enter the Rhinotaur, completing the Circle of Chaos Warband!
Plonking away at the backlog of wave 1.5 Shadows of Brimstone minis. The Custodians of Targa are spidery robotic servant caretaker automatons, reminiscent of the Dwarven Spider Guardians from Skyrim. The similarities are more than superficial; these are also leftovers of an ancient civilisation that has dissappeared, and patrol the empty halls of their builders, […]Read More Shadows of Brimstone: Custodians of Targa
Every so often I go down into the musty cellar to go snorkeling in the old boxes o’ minis just to rediscover some of the many minis I have forgotten I own. And every time I resurface with a few interesting minis that go into my “need to prep” pile. Some months later, I might […]Read More From Ye Pile of Olde: RAFM Earth Elemental
After I got my 3D printer I have been printing off a bunch of lipped bases in different sizes to do my random minis up. So naturally, some of my random little minis get based every once in a while. Such as these little darlings: These are mounted on 20mm bases. […]Read More Two snotlings and a baby squig
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.
