  1. Hi, Here is my take on the Reaper Chimera in Bones. Mine was pretty wonky and wasn't responding well to boiling water, but I still like the sculpt very much. I re-based the mini on a 50*50mm square in order to use it as a "Beast of Nature" for my "Kings Of War - Forces of Nature" army. Paint job is my standard army quality, but I had some fun on the base with some putty and water effects. I'm trying to get most of the bases in this army to be a bit scenic.
  2. I like the game. The mechanics are simple enough to pick it up quickly and have fun with my young (primary school) kids, while still needing some strategy (mostly placement and movement). My kids learned the hard way that getting all the characters in a single file in a narrow corridor with the mage on the front line is a bad idea... the outcome wasn't pretty... Also, there are a lot narrative missions meaning you don't have to prepare anything in advance and just start to play There are also options for more advanced gamers about creating your own character and leveling up. But I haven't touched that at all.
  3. These look sweet! And the scenic base is Awesome!
  4. Hi, After being very lazy on the painting front for a while, I decided to knock a batch of models off of my unpainted shelf. These models are part of an expansion from the "Dungeon Saga" board game called the "Warlord of Galahir". The theme of the expansion is mostly Orcs and Goblins with a couple of new heroes: a Salamander (a fiery lizard man) and a Glade walker shaman (a tree-man). The models are cast in "coloured plastics" so the details may not be the sharpest, there was a lot of warping, but it is pretty good for a boardgame, and there is a pair of identical sculpts in each batch. Painting-wise, I went for quick tabletop quality, no blending, stark highlights, and resilient clear coat as I'm expecting these models to see quite a bit of action with the kids. The hardest mini to paint was the Orclings as they are super-tiny and tightly crammed on the base (they are based by default) making reaching out some spots challenging. C&C welcome Heroes and Boss: Trolls: Orcs: Goblins: Orclings and Mawbeasts:
  5. Hi all, To start of the year well, I decided to clear some of my primed but not yet painted minis. Here are 2 variations of Blaine (Mantic's mascot) I got from Dungeon Saga and KoW rewards. The version on foot was not very inspiring... but the mounted one was really fun (what is not to like to have a predator looking guy riding a dino!). For the dino, I tried something a bit different from my usual paint job and started with a 2 tone base coat (green an yellow) that I then covered all around with a camo green wash. I'm quite happy with the result. C&C Welcome. Blaine Mounted: Blaine on foot:
  6. Great Kit bashing! And nice greys and blacks. Ties the force well together
  7. Hi, While digging through my pile of Bones, I got inspired by the Warg model (by Jason Wiebe) and decided to integrate this as part of my "in-progress" Forces of Nature Army for Kings of War. I chose to make the Warg as a "wild companion" for my druid. The Warg was almost entirely painted using washes and dry-brush (letting the wonderful sculpt do all the hard work). The druid is a metal mini from Mantic. While still being technically a 28mm mini, it is still a lot smaller than Reaper's heroic scale. I went a bit crazy on on the OSL, but this was a poor attempt at hiding/distracting the very sloppy paint job on her face... But it turns out that the OSL kinda fit with my Earth Elemental in this army too. The druid and its wild companion: With the elemental:
  8. So cool colour scheme. Black-lining, Weathering, OSL and the little free-hand text are awesome and really make the piece stand out. Wished my big stompy robots looked like that...
  9. Hi all, Here is another random mini I decided to paint. This little guy stood out to me because, for a Dwarf, well, he is pretty tall. He may not look like it by himself, but he dwarfs any other Dwarven people next to him. I wanted him to have a very bright and fire-y beard... for a change from my more usual grey-brown beards. So here is my take on Herryk the Dwarf Cleric.
  10. My daughter love these books too. Great rendition of the characters on the minis. The fur effect on the monster is great! (It looks like it is all free-handed!)
  11. Hi, I'm continuing my random minis painting and I found this gray mini standing out (quite obviously) in my pile of unpainted White Bones. It was clearly not a Bones (I must have gotten it from the dollar bin of my FLGS), so my OCD kicked-in and instead of putting it in another bin, I slapped some paint on it and called it done. I'm not that pleased with it (wasn't really inspired, and gave up on making the eyes pretty after 5 futile attempts), but I'm happy that it is one less mini in the unpainted bin.
  12. Amazing composition and the piece tells the story on its own. Love the rotting flesh / carrion look on Nethy.
  13. Great work on these ! I truly believe that painted minis enhance greatly any boardgame experience. You're and your opponent are going to have fun slaughtering each other.
  14. It definitely gives out an evil vibe. Great job!
