I had a spurt of painting the minis from Warhammer Quest: The Silver Tower boardgame some months ago, but many miniatures have been languishing unpainted. I thought it time to take up a bit of the slack, as it were. First up is the coven of Kairic Acolytes. These are the Chanters of Change, cultits […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: The Kairic Acolytes
The second and third Spirit Hosts from the Malignants starter set I bought some time ago.

I don’t like to call it […]Read More Into the Silver Tower, part I: Where is the Fish? Fishy, Fishy, Fishy, Fish?

There is absolutely no way to balance it. It seems the rules strongly favor the player using few but powerful models, and horde […]Read More Age of Sigmar
