Wee Free Folk

Over the past few years I’ve bought a lot of miniatures, from a lot of different sources. I try to support small or new companies, because I want them to do well (and I like having a variety of different things to paint). And… Continue Reading “Wee Free Folk”

Horns and Cloven Feet

When the flowery hands of springForth their woodland riches fling,Through the meadows, through the valleysGoes the satyr carolling. C. S. Lewis, The Satyr, 1919 While rearranging some shelves last week, I realised that I’d painted quite a few miniatures last year (and indeed, done… Continue Reading “Horns and Cloven Feet”

Necron-omicon

“Beyond life there are” – his face grew ashen with terror -“things that I cannot distinguish. They move slowly through angles. They have no bodies, and they move slowly through outrageous angles…God, they are breaking through! They are breaking through! “ Frank Belknap Long, The… Continue Reading “Necron-omicon”

New Members in the Cult

I’m on something of a roll painting genestealers (and their proxies) for the Cult of the Third Party Emperor. I think the last two posts were a bit too photo-heavy, so here’s a third with just a few new (and old) miniatures from the… Continue Reading “New Members in the Cult”

After last month’s return to blogging (and last year’s efforts at terrain making) it is at long last time to post some painted miniatures. And what better way to celebrate my return from the dead that with a couple of undead – Heinrich Kemmler… Continue Reading “Back from the Dead”

Modelling Workshop

Cottage Front

I’ve been away for a long while. Between working overseas, polishing off my master’s degree, and COVID-19 I’ve not had much time for creativity, other than a couple of posts to mop up the last miniatures I painted in mid-2018 and a few drawings… Continue Reading “Modelling Workshop”

Creatures of the Night

I painted these in 2018 and uploaded the photos almost exactly a year ago – but seemingly forgot to write the post until now.  What follows may not be suitable for work.  Firstly because the creatures are horrifying, monstrous creatures from Citadel’s Night Horrors… Continue Reading “Creatures of the Night”

Characters of Chaos

Over the past year work and study have kept me busy, and I haven’t had much time for creative hobbies.  Recently though I’ve been motivated to draw again – it takes somewhat less time to set up than miniature painting, and I’ve been inspired… Continue Reading “Characters of Chaos”
