The Dead Will Walk My Blog

Continuing to upload some old (2021) photographs of even older (circa 1986-1988) miniatures – more Night Horrors for my collection, which I’ve been working on – in an on-and-off way – for about 20 years. I have about half of them, and they’re getting… Continue Reading “The Dead Will Walk My Blog”

Forest Guardian

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”

The Dawi-Zharr

Around their dark city the Chaos Dwarfs sunk mines into the earth, delving deep into the rock and filth in pursuit of the treasures that lie below.  They built engines down in the depths… According to Stuff of Legends, the Chaos Dwarfs first appeared… Continue Reading “The Dawi-Zharr”

Here be Dragons

“AAAARRRRGGGGHHH!!” Drumin Dragonhelm pulled off his helmet and wiped the sweat from his eyes.  They had been in the swamp for three days now, and of the confident band that had set, out only three were left.  Or perhaps two. Today I slayed a… Continue Reading “Here be Dragons”
