This minis was a kickstarter exclusive from the Kings of War second edition campaign by Mantic in 2014. “Blaine” is a Mantic mascot of sorts. and there has been a version of him in all their own IP kickstarters apart from the vey first Kings of War. So here is him as the Fantasy Tyrant […]Read More Mantic Tyrant King Blaine on Raptor
In the first Mantic Kings of War kickstarter back in 2012 they made some heroically proportioned Mummies. Which was a bit strange, as most other minis were closer to tru-scale 28mm and hence much thinner and with smaller weapons etc. Mantic has never been very consistent with neither scales nor styles. Also, they were much […]Read More More Mantic Mummies
These minis have been giving me nasty looks for some time now, being the only miniatures from the Dungeon Saga kickstarter shipment that I for some reason did not manage to finish way back when I did the rest of them. And I remembered why shortly after starting on this lot…. I found them rather […]Read More Dungeon Saga: The Greenskins, the last of the lot!
aaaaand they’re done! It is the end of the line. No more! No more I say ! Phew. Free at last! The Bobbybox: 126 random older dead stock Mantic minis plus 13 casualties, small animals and such. I must admit, getting these done was a bit of a slog in places, and I really needed […]Read More Bobbybox pt 18: Completed!
It’s Orctober! Cue token painting of some random orc minis…luckily the next in line from the bobbybox are the rest of the Dungeon Saga Orcs and Goblins. The orclings and the mawbeast were done earlier. Here is the rest of the set. The Armoured Troll The three orcs and the three […]Read More Bobbybox pt 15: Dungeon Saga Orcs and Goblins
The time has come for the Warpath Orx Marauder Command figures, and the Kings of War Goblin Spitters. There were two sprues of the old Marauder Orx Command, each with parts to make two miniatures plus extras for the bits box. When Mantic first was set up, they had a clear made-for-Warhammer-but-much-cheaper-to-buy profile. The Mantic minis […]Read More Bobbybox pt 12: The Warpath Orx, and KoW Goblin Spitters
This last month I have been intermittently plonking away at the remainder of the Abyssals from the Dungeon Saga Kickstarter. I had this idea when pledging that these minis would be forming the start of a Kings of War army. I ordered two extra sets of the Abyssals so I would have 5 sets of […]Read More SideQuest: Dungeon Saga: Abyssals
I happen to have some more Plague models in the Mountains of Minis that I would like to add to the new plague force I have started with the bobbybox minis. I think I will have a sidequest going for a while to get them done along side the bobbybox main quest. Ahem. The Plague […]Read More Sidequest: The Plague. Terrorton!
A change of pace today. Since doing the Bobbybox plague minis, I have been rummaging a bit through the boxes of Deadzone minis, and I have dug up some old fossils… The imposing 1st generation plague victim. What happens is that the first person to get infected by the Plague in a given cycle, turns into […]Read More And now for something slightly different
Today has been a day full of Star Wars Battlefront 2. I really am not too fond of the infantry part of the game, which seems to consist of alot of waiting for it to start, then running forever to reach the battle arena, just to get murdered as soon as you close in on […]Read More Bobbybox pt 4: The Plague Doggies and WIP
The first four minis of the crazy box finished! Hoody Hoo! I have been a busy bee and undercoated all of the minis. So now the table is set for getting down to some serious painting! Starting with some easy peasy Cylons DeadZone Asterian Cyphers: from this: to this: The Cypher with a hand […]Read More Bobbybox pt 3: The First Four: Refbot and Asterians
I have dedicated some of my free time to prep the contents of the crazy box, and finished this today. I had forgotten exactly how very labour intensive restic prep is. Restic being the term Mantic used for their hard PVC “premium plastic” that came in parts. Lots of tiny parts! And all those tiny […]Read More The Crazy Bobbybox, pt II
