  1. Howdy, Game pieces... More Dungeon Saga to come, Kev!
  2. Howdy, O.K. the Dungeon Saga KS was what got me started in (unpainted) Mini Collecting. Immediately after backing, I bought some bones off of e-bay so I could learn to paint before I got my KS rewards... Finally, four years later, I paint this guy! Viel Danke, Kev! P.S. Click if you'd like a closer look. P.P.S. Gnasher the bulldog has a side quest for you!
  3. Maledrakh's Terrorton

    The Plague affects not only humans, but most animals and many alien sentient races. Such as the hitech DinoTurtle-like Teraton. The Teraton females are significantly larger than the males, and when infected by the Plague, she grows partially into and partially busting out of her armour, while remaining more or less her normal size. These 2nd generation Teratons retain most of their intelligence and function as leaders on the field of battle. I like to call them Terrortons. Because they are terrifying and weigh a ton! While at the same time being well ‘ard and quite imposing on the battlefield. They are about the same size as a 1st gen, but not quite as powerful. They are good as secondary leaders and can provide some hard muscle in smaller games where the 1st gen is too costly to bring. The Terrorton is made in restic and I have mounted it on a 50mm base, like the 1st gen.

  4. Maledrakh's Mantic Plague 1st Gens

    The imposing 1st generation plague victim. What happens is that the first person to get infected by the Plague in a given cycle, turns into a horrendous monstrosity, growing several metres in height and width, it’s new massively muscled frame covered in a bio-organic spiky exoarmour. In it’s new form it is extremely intelligent and powerful individual that sets out find others to infect. These new victims turn into the 2nd generations, each much smaller than the 1st gen, but still ogre-sized. These again infect the 3rd gens that we have seen. The 1st and 2nd gens do not use technology or weapons, relying on their rock hard exoarmour and brutally strong claws to do the dirty work. I found that for some reason, I had started but not finished painting my 1st gens. Two complete repaints later: The one to the left is the restic standard 1st gen model. The one to the right is a resin kickstarter exclusive freebie for those who spent an obscene amount of cash on the first KS. (of which I remain guilty as charged…) One of the resin mini’s fingers had broken off during storage. That’s what happens when it is put loose in a box with other minis, and that box is part of an avalanche in the Mountains of Minis. (At that point I might have said a bad word.) I managed to make a new finger by carefully applying some plastic putty in several stages. Can you see which it is? The resin one is slightly larger than the restic one. I believe the restic shrinks a bit more during casting. They are painted much the same way as the other plague models I recently have painted: Reddish-Brown basecoats, several careful drybrushes with shades of beige and skin, globbing on a generous wash with citadel druuchi violet ink and some carroburg crimson ink in places while the violet is still wet. Two thin coats, pah! Glob it on I say! take care to not let it puddle too much though. When dry, drybrush again with several skintones. Some more carroburg crimson here and there for muscle-effect. Dot in the eyes and teeth in white over black. red for the tongues. I mounted them on 50mm lipped round bases I had lying about. Looks much better than the 40mm flats they came supplied with.

  5. While not really themed, all these minis were left over from my other projects. I think they'll all find a home in "Tesrora, the City That Can't Be Tamed", the fantasy ganglands campaign I'm working on for this year. Ametrine Earthlyte, Dwarf Alchemist.

  6. Coming in April and based on the comics, not any past or upcoming movies. The Hellboy board game will be a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members, such as Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Roger the Homunculus, before exploring gothic locations and uncovering ancient artifacts. Set to make its Kickstarter debut in April 2018, the Hellboy board game will feature stunning, pre-assembled plastic miniatures that accurately capture the look and feel of Mike Mignola’s world famous comic series. “Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO. “The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast-paced co-operative board game that will let players experience some of their favorite moments from the series.”
  7. Dreadball Goals

    I have been working on a pair of goals for my Dreadball Extreme game. I have them pretty close to done, but I am debating on adding color to the hoses hanging off the back of the goal. There is a part of me that wants to just leave them the way they are. On the other hand, I feel that adding some color to the hoses will help with the overall look. The other question that I have is if I do add color, what color should I add? Please share your thoughts as I could use a second opinion on these. Thanks.
  8. Dreadball Kalyashi

    In February, I started work on painting up my next Dreadball Team. This time it was the Kalyashi team from Dreadball Extreme and the Warden. They turned out pretty well. These models were rough. Most were missing ears one was missing an eye. (Hence the one having an eye patch.) A lot of the armor details did not carry over from one side of the model to the other. This was especially true on the legs. You would start painting a piece of armor only to find that it disappeared on the other side. Overall it made it really frustrating to work on and I found myself just trying to get a decent tabletop quality. I tried the best that I could to make them look manageable. Not my best work. I will say that with all of my experience with Mantic, these models are a rare bad batch and not indicative of the quality that I normally see from them.

  9. Maledrakh's Ronnie the Bard

    A kickstarter exclusive from the Kings of War 2 KS. I painted this mini for the Reaper forums bimonthly resolutionary painting challenge first bonus challenge, which is simply to paint a mini in a jumping/springing pose. This is a rendition of Ronnie Renton the owner/ leader/ director of Mantic Games as Ronaldo the Bard. And something of an in-joke at Mantic it would seem. I need to complain a bit about Mantic's metal alloy. It is too soft. This mini snapped in two different places. One was the feather in the cap, which I had to glue back slightly differently than it originally was; and the other was the right foot, which snapped clean off the first time I tried to dry fit the mini in a slotted base. Which explains why the ankle is a bit lumpy now. Add to this that the miniscule truscale Mantic uses makes most details really small...argh. It does look much better IRL when not massively magnified. And I used Blackadder the First's "Earl of Doncaster" outfit as an inspiration. I did paint the britches in colour and not in black, to give the mini more of a festive air.

  10. 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.

  11. Mantic Dreadball Convicts Team

    One of my goals for the summer is to be able to host a Dreadball League. In preparation for that I thought that it would be fun to put together my convicts team and get them painted. Here is the team all together Balls Guards Injured Players Jacks Strikers Overall I do feel like I am getting better. I am still working on several techniques. I am still trying to get the hang of layering. I now own the LTPK for layering from Reaper and I am sure that I will get better at it. I am really happy with the skin on the guards. I have a few eyes that are a bit wonky. Overall for tabletop quality, I think that they turned out alright. Comments and pointers are always appreciated.
  12. 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:
  13. I have recently been invited to a Kings of War Escalation campaign. I looked around my hobby room and much to my dismay found hundreds upon hundreds of unpainted models because I am a bad, bad procrastinator. As a result,I decided to do an Undead army, and have decided to use as many miniatures I already own rather than buying new ones, many of which come from the Bones Kickstarter 1, very very old GW models and some Mantic stuff I have had for years, the idea being that the undead army is a mishmash of former armies of ancient which all fought under the same banner, sworn to never rest until a great evil has been banished from the land. Plan is to work it up to 2500 points in a few months... We will see if I can keep my painting game strong. Here's the startings of Lord Calder's Host... Pictures after the drop. -------- "Before you sign this, you need to understand that swearing fealty to Lord Calder is no small measure. I've seen those eyes before. Dreams of adventure and romance, tasting the first blood on your blade, and helping slay the evils of the world. Maybe you're in it for the coin, dark knows I was. I know the rate of pay is high, and I promise Calder can pay it. Whatever your wildest dreams, you sign with us, you'll get it. But you gotta understand boy, Calder don't give nothing for free... This contract don't end with you toes up towards the sky, the ravens feasting on your soft bits, your family safe in the wealth Lord Calder pays after you take a stray arrow in the face. No lad, this contract is binding. For today, tomorrow, and the hereafter. We all die. Maybe you'll die on the field of battle a month from now when some unknown evil claws its way out of the earths to tear apart every man, dwarf and elf across the realm, dying in a pool of your own entrails to protect whatever sweetness you keep at home. Or maybe maybe you'll die old and wrinkled in your bed, a legend among men, songs sung and glories burned into the histories. We all die. All of us. But son, you gotta understand that someday, he will call again. It don't matter how long you've slept. I swear you boy, You'll wake." ------ Comments and criticism welcome! Promise Reaper minis will be included soon.

  17. Howdy, From the "Return of Valendor" module... The Eater of Realms... The Bane of the Mortal Kingdoms... The Bringer of Woe! Another Villain, Kev!
  18. Howdy, Here is the other Master of Darkness... Your look is appreciated, Kev! P.S. As the thread title indicates, this piece is from the Dungeon Saga game by Mantic. Part of the Warlord of Galahlir Modulle, I think.
  19. Howdy, Here is another Mantic Dungeon Saga Game piece... Thanks for perusing, Kev!
  20. Howdy, Here is my take on this Dungeon Saga villain... Thanks for ogling, Kev! P.S. These were done with Reeves craft acrylics from a sampler and Liqutex Basics! the metalics are Reaper tarnished steel 9206, ancient bronze 9049, and dry brushed with dirty bone 9271(my fave)
  21. Are there any miniatures that could blend in in a KoW army? Mantic elves are ridiculously thin while still quite tall, which makes everything else seem obese when standing side by side. I would like at least some characters to differentiate my army as Mantic's choice is very limited. I don't mind some kit bashing as long as its relatively simple (head and weapon swaps, resculpting capes). The dark elves and some elves look close, but hard to say without seeing them side by side. https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bones%20elf/sku-down/77205#detail/IG_4693_1
  22. Hi all, I continued to paint random minis out of my large pile of unpainted, and here are Hordin and Gnasher. This was a bonus mini from the Dungeon Saga KS from Mantic. They were cast in "coloured plastic" (read by that, board-game quality plastic) but the details on them were surprisingly crisp. The only tricky part was that they were "ready to play" and already mounted on their base together, making some spots harder to reach. Anyways, a fun little couple to paint. And they may be used for some other games than Dungeon Saga (you always need a dwarf innkeeper in various settings).
  23. Kickstarter is Live and has reached the initial funding level: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/star-saga-the-sci-fi-dungeon-crawler?ref=nav_search From the Mantic Newsletter: "Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will see players guide a team of space mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world. Players will take on platoons of minions, powerful alien bosses and be forced to make difficult choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns. The spiritual sequel to Dungeon Saga, Star Saga introduces newly improved and stronger rulesets, 'learn as you go' rules for new players and, more detailed, advanced mechanics for seasoned gamers." If it wasn't for Mantics long history of fulfilment issues/delays/changes I'd be tempted by this. It sounds like the game I've been waiting for. Instead I'll likely just keep an eye on the Kickstarter and consider buying at retail.

  25. Dreadball 2

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/dreadball-the-futuristic-sports-game-2 I went in huuuge on the first DB and almost played a game twice. I liked the minis overall, though the casting was a mess (purportedly Mantic plastic has improved quite a bit). Best part in my opinion was getting several teams in metal for some reason, those are nice! Anyway, Mantic is back for more. I'm tentatively in because I have so many teams for this already and the new rulebook condenses all the season books, updates the rules; and the teams book supports all the old teams and MVPs. So if I do ever get around to playing, it would be nice to have.
