Greenskin Wars

Coming to the end of my Christmas painting projects, here’s small batch of mostly goblinoids from one of my favourite companies, Diego Serrate Pinilla’s Knightmare Miniatures.  I got most of them from the first Greenskin Wars Kickstarter – I missed out on the follow-up (of hobgoblins… Continue Reading “Greenskin Wars”

Warrior Women with Stumpy Sidekicks

Setting expectations high for 2018, following on from my Russian Alternative Troll of Chaos and Oldhammer creatures from Greek mythology, I think there’s time for one more blog entry this weekend.  I worked on a few different projects over Christmas, including painting miniatures from… Continue Reading “Warrior Women with Stumpy Sidekicks”

Ancient Minis from Greek Mythology

Like London buses, after a six month hiatus I’m posting my second blog entry of this weekend. Today it’s three monsters from Greek mythology – a harpy, Medusa, and the Lernaean Hydra. All of them Citadel Miniatures in the original lead, so I’m not… Continue Reading “Ancient Minis from Greek Mythology”

Troll of Chaos

It’s been a while since I updated this blog. Life, school, and work got in the way, and when I found time to paint again the weather was no good for spraying. But even though I couldn’t varnish them, I managed to paint about… Continue Reading “Troll of Chaos”

The Manticore

In India there is a beast called the manticore.  It has a triple row of teeth, the face of a man, and grey eyes; it is blood-red in colour and has a lion’s body, a pointed tail with a sting like a scorpion, and… Continue Reading “The Manticore”

Terrible Things 2

I am off work this week, and my wife is away, so I’ve had plenty of time available to get in touch with my inner artist and geek, finishing off some long-standing projects and starting a couple of new ones.  There are loads of… Continue Reading “Terrible Things 2”

Night Horrors

This week I finished off six Citadel Night Horrors.  They join six more that I finished a couple of weeks ago but haven’t previously posted.  It’s a short post, but for an unusually productive 12 minis.  I hope they’ll speak for themselves.

‘A’ is for Ambull

I’m definitely not going to start a miniature bestiary (if ‘A’ is for ambull then ‘Z’ is for zombie dragon).  I’ve got loads of other things to work on already, deadlines at work (‘Z’ is for zoat), and my final university assignment in a… Continue Reading “‘A’ is for Ambull”

Undead update

Zombie

My shameful lead mountain is looking particularly insurmountable right now.  On Thursday I received my minis from the first Greenskin Wars Kickstarter (they’re excellent), and on Friday I bought a load of old Citadel Night Horrors via eBay auction.  They’re a pretty collectible range,… Continue Reading “Undead update”

Finally finished fantasy frogs

Following on from my post in the Month of Marsh, I’ve finally finished a group of six fantasy frog minis.  I’ve been working on them on and off since September.  A couple of them were a bit frustrating to paint, and there are some rough… Continue Reading “Finally finished fantasy frogs”
