Bones 3: The Yetis

aka Abominable Snowmen, aka Yhetees aka shaggy white snow trolls. I chose to base them the same way I do the rest of my minis, in case I actually get around to building an Ogre army sometime in the future. Yeah, I know they are supposed to be called Ogors now, but just no.   […]

It’s Sledgehammer Time!

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.

And a transparent, quivering wall moving towards us at speed… It ended badly for our party even […]

Bones 3: Cemetary Golem

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 […]
