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
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
This month I have been painting just small drips and dabs here and there in between everything else in what little time I have had for such things. So I have not really been able to do all that much. But I did get few hours in yesterday, and so I managed to actually finish […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: Skaven Deathrunners
At last I got round to finishing the last Pink Horror: For some reason, this one took ages and ages and ages to finish. And the delightful little Brimstone Horrors: These little fiery fiends are apparently what a Blue Horror splits into when killed. Love ’em! I used black flock as they have burned […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: Pink and Brimstone Horrors of Tzeentch
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
I have not been painting most anything the last month or so. But I have been building and prepping a lot of minis, such as the Shadows of Brimstone wave 1,5, a whole bunch of metal minis from trades and purchases, and the Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower game set. I don’t like to call it […]Read More Into the Silver Tower, part I: Where is the Fish? Fishy, Fishy, Fishy, Fish?
