I am taking a break from the bobbybox for a few weeks to recharge the enthusiasm (or sheer stubborness) needed to continue with those minis. So getting back to Shadows of Brimstone, here is the last of the 30mm based minis I have from the wave 1.5 shipment. Only the XL Darkstone Hydra and the […]Read More Intermission: Snakes, Pork, and Shrubbery
Next up from the Conan Boardgame is the great Lion. After all, Conan needs something to comfort himself with in his royal court when he bears the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow… This lion mini is significantly larger than the Bones lions I did the other day.

A picture says more than a thousand words: […]Read More Putting the C in Barbarian!

Here is the first I have painted up as a kind of test piece. I think I might have enough of these […]Read More From Ye Pile of Olde: (Conan the) Barbarian. by Grenadier Miniatures
