Flock of Gargoyles

From the clear-some-of-that-crap-off-the-shelf department:   15 Mantic Gargoyles. One group of 10, and another group of 5 that matches the 5 I did last year.  I got 5 Gargoyles as a freebie from the first Kings of War Kickstarter, and it turns out later that unit sizes are 10. And only 10. These other minis […]

The Revenants

Some time ago, I bought the Undead army with the first Kings of War Kickstarter. I built and prepped a bunch of them, but for the most part, they are standing around on the shelf of doom. But every once in a while I get the itch to finish up some more of them. This […]

Mantic Gargoyles (Half) Troop

Finishing up units…here is the Mantic Kings of War Gargolyes. 5 of them, including the one I painted a few weeks or so ago, rebased to the standard 25mm square. For some reason I thought they had 20mm bases. At least with the 25mm base, they don’t keep tipping over all the time. And it […]

Off the Shelf: Mantic Gargoyle

Pushing onwards with getting a few more stragglers off the shelf, today I finished the Mantic Gargoyle test piece. Here I tried a couple of things that did not work, and has been overpainted. at least twice.     In the end, I opted for the classic stone colour: grey, also in the wings. 20mm […]

Knights of the Lost Crusade

Lots of prep the last few weeks, as the second wave of Deadzone arrived.   So I have painted 10 more skeletal footknights of the Lost Crusade, bringing the total up to a massive 15 models including the test subjects I did some time back!   These are so quick and easy to do. I […]
