I made something in tinkercad for my 3D printer: These are 20mm and 25mm round bases with chamfered edges and a 16mm recess that fits the older Mantic models. You can download the files from Thingiverse. I did not want to build any new minis off the many sprues I got lying about, as the […]Read More From the Flesh Eater Courts
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 […]Read More The Revenants
Apart from the prep, I have done some Mantic undead, easy jobs to fill out some of the units I have and get them off the “to do” shelf. 5 skeleton warriors 4 zombies. (yes it should be 3 and a half, but since I count the large minis as 1, I think it is ok to count […]Read More Bulking out some undead units for Kings of War
About a year ago, I bought a set of Mantic old convert-your-own sci fi zombies off ebay, and combined with the plague zombie sprues I got from the deadzone kickstarter I spent a day building a ton of them. They have been cluttering up my to do-shelf ever since, only being nickled-and-dimed in small groups, getting […]Read More Space Hurps done for now
For some reason, I had half a skeleton lying about, and coupled with a loose base from another mini I recently rebased, I got this: Not much to write home about. Fills an empty slot in the skeleton unit is all. Half a skeleton Undead Skeletons Mantic 20mm base HIPS plastic Painted […]Read More Rising skeleton
When Mantic ran their very first kickstarter, they pumped out stretch goal after stretch goal with concept drawings, riding on a wave of success they did not anticipate. Some of these drawings created a lot of buzz, such as this really great werewolf: and when the minatures arrived and were unveiled there were much of […]Read More The Last of the Werewolves
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 […]Read More Mantic Gargoyles (Half) Troop
The second blob of minis off the shelf today is 12 more of the Mantic Sci Fi Zombie Space Hurps conversions: I really, really need to look into better photography. At any rate, that makes 43 of those zombies done in all. 15-20 or so to go. I must admit they are getting a bit […]Read More Space Hurps part the fifth.
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 […]Read More Off the Shelf: Mantic Gargoyle
Even more off the shelf of shame… This unit of 5 Wraiths came as a part of the undead army I bought through the first Mantic Kings of War kickstarter. They were also some of the first minis I got (together with some undead mounted knights) that were in restic. I had never seen, nor […]Read More Mantic Wraiths
A few weeks ago I painted a squad of 10 Mars Attacks! Martian Grunts. Or so I thought. Turned out 7 of them were Martian Marines, and not Grunts at all. (In my defense, they are very similar, with the difference being that Marines have shoulder pads. So I have at last finished the remaining […]Read More Fixing the little Mars Attacks! mixup, and more Zombies.
For March I am still doing squads, this one is from Mars Attacks, a squad of Martian grunts. 9 new ones, 1 finished previously. I have not bothered with slicing off the mould lines on these. The results are actually acceptable anyhow. 25 mm integral bases. Softish PVC material. Bonus round 5! Deadzone Mercenary: Freya, […]Read More Mars Attacks!
