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
Last year I bought a unit of unbuilt Chaos Hounds off Ebay on a whim. Which turned out to have no bases and missing a horn. Sigh. When you buy on the cheap, youse gets whats youse gets. First I stuck them on square cavalry bases, but that looked just wrong. I think I have […]Read More A bit about base 3D printing; also Cry Havoc! And let slip the Hounds of Chaos!
Pedrogo is the leader of the Circle of Chaos. And now the Cirle warband is complete! …apart from the grey death Rhinotaur that I did not pledge for. Regrets, regrets. Pedrogo Cirle of Chaos Oldhammer Warband Kickstarter by Curtis Fell of Ramshackle Miniatures. Metal 30mm base Minivember tally: 30 […]Read More The Circle of Chaos: Pedrogo the Dwarf Sorceror. The Circle is complete!
There are so many different projects cluttering up my workspace, and the Circle of Chaos minis are one of them. Having earlier completed the evil dryad as the first of the seven in the warband, here is number two: The Guardian: A strange one this. Apparently an Empire foot knight with the long limbs […]Read More Circle of Chaos: The Guardian
And the award for most pretentious name given to a class of model 2016 goes to… The Ogroid Thaumaturge! ’cause GW can’t own the more classic Ogre Mage. (“Traumaturge” would have been a great name for this one) After a harrying time fighting through the streets beating up all the little girls and beefy men around […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: Blanka, the Ogroid Thaumaturge
The Pink Purple Horror: The other is pink, but a way of to be finished. These have so much detail and take ages to paint! Pink Horror of Tzeentch / Herald of Tzeentch from the Silver Tower base game set by Games Workshop also for Age of Sigmar / Warhammer 40.000 HIPS plastic […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: The Purple Horror of Tzeentch
Oh GW, what have you done to my beloved night goblins? Luckily these variant models, for want of a better word, only appear in the Silver Tower game and are (probably) not weirdo GW newgoblins, but a different breed of chaos goblin altogether. Thank F for that. That said, I quite like the concept. Tzeentch […]Read More Into the Silver Tower, part 3: Scuttlings
Thrusting onwards with Silver Tower minis: Talk about your radical re-designs. These are significantly different from the original oldhammer ones I recently painted up. They are nice on their own terms, and certainly have more movement to them. But they seem less…fun? The originals were all grinning happy pink horrrors, and […]Read More Into the Silver Tower, part 2: The Blue Horrors
The two remaining thugs for Frostgrave: Billy “the Kid”, and Gruff, whom is the eldest. Billy likes to talk with the trolls instead of fighting them, Gruff won’t have any of that and charges in. The three brothers Grimm function as arrow fodder Thugs and treasure donkeys, very useful indeed. 77252: Beastman Warrior 1 and […]Read More Billy and Gruff, from Billy, Goat and Gruff.
