So I have not been able or in the mood to paint much, and what I did do, took ages longer than usual. When I first saw the Mantic Elves these minis struck me as […]Read More Bobbybox, pt 6: Quick Elves spearmen troop + Orclings
The Plague. A virus-like alien condition that invades and takes charge of an unsuspecting host, causing growth to parts of the body, thereby changing said host to make it much stronger than before. The earlier one gets infected, the more alien and changed one becomes. The first and second generation are massive hulking beasts with […]Read More Bobbybox, pt V: The Plague
Today has been a day full of Star Wars Battlefront 2. I really am not too fond of the infantry part of the game, which seems to consist of alot of waiting for it to start, then running forever to reach the battle arena, just to get murdered as soon as you close in on […]Read More Bobbybox pt 4: The Plague Doggies and WIP

I have dedicated some of my free time to prep the contents of the crazy box, and finished this today. I had forgotten exactly how very labour intensive restic prep is. Restic being the term Mantic used for their hard PVC “premium plastic” that came in parts. Lots of tiny parts! And all those tiny […]Read More The Crazy Bobbybox, pt II

This year, Mantic offer up their normal […]Read More The Punishment Due: Crazy Bobby’s Craaazzy Bonanza Box of Craziness!!!!
In a spurt of “let’s get this over with” I have painted the rest of the wave 1.5 heroes for Shadows of Brimstone. 17 of them finished today, which together with the Nun and the two Orphans I did earlier make the full set of 20, as follows: A note about the resin used.

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
