    Orc Warband - Minions of Evil!

    Yeah, the orcs don't really do it for me, but I feel a deep need for the basilisk. Guess I'll wait til it's available on their website.

    Trying to find a dwarf librarian/sage

    Pretty sure it isn't exclusive - I think the sold out preorder on the website is because the Kickstarter hasn't fulfilled yet. I'd expect it to be updated and made available once it has. Definitely worth getting in touch to check though. They're helpful at responding to queries.

    Trying to find a dwarf librarian/sage

    Little late to the party, but Atlantis Miniatures here in the UK have a resin dwarf scribe/loremaster as part of their Kickstarter that's set to fulfill in April. Bit of a wait before it'll get to retail, but it looks like it might fit the bill.

    Bones 4 is Coming Soon!

    This is what worries me. I'm pretty hyped for Bones 4, but worried that if I spend a lot, by the time our esteemed UK leaders have finished shooting our feet off, I might end up on the hook for considerably more than I or Reaper had planned :( That said, I'm particularly excited for dragons (undead or alive) and griffons, so hopefully they'll outweigh the doom that is Brexit.
  5. I'd like to splash out on: Assorted bandits/ruffians More mindflayer bathalian sculpts More half-dragons/dragonborn More hellborn Skeleton warriors from other races (dwarves especially)

    [SPLIT] Reaper's 25th Anniversary Promotion January

    I ordered my Grim Reaper from Miniature Heroes, so hopefully the remaining 11 will be available from there as well.

    77149: Damien, Hellborn Wizard

    I think he's my favourite of the two as well (which is a shame, as I was playing the other!). I really enjoyed making such different characters from the same base mini. Definitely something I could stand to try again...

    77149: Damien, Hellborn Wizard

    We attacked a hag (pro-tip: don't do this) and he got blasted with lightning. Through the power of DM magic (and the fact that we had another session booked), he was returned to life with the curse of turning into a skeleton at night and being able to walk through walls! The downside being that things like Turn Undead would work on him, which sadly we never got to see! We were playing Curse of Strahd, so it fit right in.

    Thanks Xherman! It was somewhat experimental, but the Bones plastic is very easy to mod, which made it fairly easy.

    77362: Angels of Sorrow

    Thanks! I just need to find a way to shoehorn them into a game... Mwahahaha!!

    77149: Damien, Hellborn Wizard

    A double act! These were done for a D&D Adventurers' League game at UK Games Expo - Korozîl the trickster cleric (left), and Aazîl the swashbuckler (right) - twin tiefling brothers. For Korozîl, I chopped off the wizard staff and drilled out the left hand. The crossbow was a Mirliton spare, with the bulky string replaced with some guitar string. For Aazîl, I chopped both hands off(!) and replaced them with the hands from a 77022 Michelle. I also chopped the curved blades off those swords and replaced them with cut down metal blades from Mirliton. The scabbards (also Mirliton) had to be filed a bit to get them to fit together crossed over; their straps are narrow masking tape. Paints were enamels over Vallejo acrylic primer. This was my first proper attempt at NMM on the swords, and I'm reasonably pleased with how they turned out. The skintones were interesting - I'm not sure how long it took to get the chests right! I wanted to do something more with the bases but ran out of time before the Games Expo, so just gave them some paint and static grass. All in all, I'm very proud of these two! And the D&D game was great (Korozîl died horribly and ended up slightly undead)!

    77362: Angels of Sorrow

    These were fairly straightforward - primed with Vallejo acrylic grey, then airbrushed with an enamel light grey. I gave them a wash with a thinned black oil paint, then some thinned green enamel to make them look a little mossy. He's behind you! Wibbly wobbly, timey wimey.

    77043: Eye Beast

    Thanks Xherman :) It took a few goes to get it how I wanted it! Thanks! They were kind of lightly drybrushed to try to keep them a little haphazard and not too bold.

    77020: Bathalian

    I'm enjoying getting used to my newly made lightbox, going through the various minis I've recently painted. This was primed with Vallejo acrylic grey and painted with Humbrol enamels. I had a go at OSL and I'm not completely disappointed with how it turned out! Thanks for looking!
