  1. Inspired by my acquisition of the new easy-build Blightlord kit and wanting to field some different formations for 40k, I built up a few extra Blightlord Terminators and painted them all up! Here comes Fat Voldemort and the Pants-Poopin' Crew. "Smile, lads!" The whole crew. Fat Voldemort himself. He's just so happy! The Spewer-Crewer: The Reaper Autocannon. The Flail of Corruption: The only guy actually equipped with a Combi-Plasma, which they'll probably all be using: Bone-Guy: Tentacool: Mr. Spikey: The Axeman:
  2. 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. A recent Reaper 25th Anniversary miniature. A rude Dwarf Thug. I started on him to go with RPE's "Dwarf Veterans Warband" as a thug. Converted from the Avatars of War Berserkers, Mantic Dwarf Bear-thing riders, and an old Mordheim club. I realize I couldn't directly post most of the shots of the Orc Matron per forum rules, so linked to my FB shots instead.

  3. Lidless Eye Hobbies: The Fair Folk

    A few of the Fair Folk and their followers. I was inspired to paint them up by a friend's mini-campaign where everyone played as Forest Gnomes. Thopas, the Lesser Gnome mascot. This is the second version of him I've painted, for the DM of the before-mentioned game. "Lord, I was born a Smambling Mound! Tryin' to kill adventurers with two attacks per round..." (minis are actually from the Magic the Gathering board game) A Pixie Messenger from Stonehaven Miniatures recent "Giants" Kickstarter. An Evil Fairy from Reaper's familiar packs. Some sprites or such from "Foundry Miniatures" now under their "Warmonger Miniatures" branch. They used to come as random extras in the Elf packs. And I saved the best for last. Some tasteful gnudes.
  4. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Castle Stoneskull

    I hadn't even realized when I began on these three that they were all from the "Castle Stoneskull" expansion from Bones III. It was a great set for adding to the random encounters for an RPG. These guys may represent some of the high-level dangers that one could encounter while dungeoneering in Castle Stoneskull! The Behir. I've been wanting one since a buddy pulled one from the first Huge set of D&D prepaints. They even show up in Pathfinder's "Reign of Winter" and D&D 5E's "Storm King's Thunder", if only I had had this guy in time for those campaigns! Brain-in-a-Jar. While I was hoping this would be a human brain, it's still a really cool design. I wonder why the legs are traditional bendy bones instead of the hard plastic that makes up the rest of the mini (minus the squishy brain), though. The mighty Minotaur! Bones has a lot of representations for Minotaurs now, almost as many as Orcs or Goblins. There's the one from pre-Kickstarter, 2 adventurers in Bones II, and the whole set of Minitaurs coming in Bones IV! Plus all the Beastmen if you want to count them, I've seen them used as medium Minotaur PCs enough times. This guy is my favorite, though. Must be the Gladiator armor.
  5. Who doesn't love Halflings in Mittens? Wait, that's not the name of the set? Why not? Alright, it turns out they're actually "The Winter Adventurers" from a recent Midlam Miniatures Kickstarter. As always, Midlam delivers nice old-school designs with newer sculpting methods and details. I think quite highly of the company. The Halflings in Mittens: Wizards and their apprentices: The Dwarfette: A human scout. I tried to go with an Inuit look for her. Every party has that guy:
  6. Another batch of rotters, fresh off the assembly line! The forces of the Brothers of Rust get more...rank! (Badum tish) Converted Biologus Putrifiers: Also converted, a set of Foul Blightspawn: Icon Bearers: Blight Launchers:
  7. The bestiary entry for Erithereans in "Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago" convinced me to finally paint a special edition Reaper miniature I had been waiting on for way too long. I can't believe it's been 12 years...and that every elephant miniature Reaper put out is currently Out of Print (I know the Bones Elephant God should be hitting retail soon, and he is very nice.) One day I may find a copy of the P-65 Elephant Man, Pachylox. He's one of the sad few who never came over to Bones. Here's Harapan!
  8. I swear, I finished these in time...but I didn't get to upload the photos last night! As usual, I try to participate in a themed project every month, and as it was No-Shave November, what better than some Dwarfs? They're all rather Oldhammer, except for the casualty from Mantic. I think they'd make a good start for a Dwarf Treasure Hunters warband for Mordheim. "Just a quick drink before the adventure..." "I think we're going the right way..." Just an old Thunderer: "Alright, let me bring along some dinner..." "Scouting ahead!" "Just a little nap afore we kill those Gobbos..."
  9. Just a last minute project for No Shave November. Dwarfs!
  10. Let's get Nurgly, Nurgly! Here's the latest reinforcements for the Brotherhood of Rust, devout followers of Grandfather Nurgle. The (un)Holy Accountant, the Tallyman! "This my Power Abacus!" Those dread bodyguards, high in price in both points and dollars, the Deathshroud Terminators! The rustiest of them all, the Blightlord Terminators: The grunts of any Death Guard force, the ever-versatile and never dying Plague Marines!
  11. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Stonehaven Giants

    Fi fie fo fum! Just in time for my "Storm King's Thunder" campaign to be long over, here come the Giants from Stonehaven Miniatures! The Hill Giant Rustler: The Sleepyhead: Smile on, smilodon! The Giant Barbarian. I believe the intent was as a Hill Giant, but I have a ton of those. His warpaint is based on runes from "Storm King's Thunder" The Cloud Giant: The Storm Giant. He's a great design, but he's rather small compared to the other Giants. It was a debate on what color of Dragon to use for his armor: The Fire Giant, who was probably my favorite to paint. She's a nice, simple design but gets the point across. The Treant: The only small miniature that I painted so far, but still from the Stonehaven Giants Kickstarter so it counts: The Entling!
  12. A raiding of Rad Wasters and a gobbledegook of Goblins.All are converted from "The Hobbit: Escape from Goblin Town". I can see these filling a large number of roles; Goblins, Mutants, Poxwalkers, Ghouls, or more! Except for the Overseer and Goblin boss, all minis have been converted. Even the fantasy/feudal 40k gobbo-mutants have had weapon swaps at the least; I don't care for doubles and had already painted their base sculpt back in the summer: First, we have the Rad Wasters! I forgot to take a shot of the last one with the others. I guess he managed to sneak into the Goblin cave!
  13. For the most recent works in progress, a gigantic distraction from my poor Death Guard project. In the last week, multiple delayed Kickstarters (and one on-time Nickstarter) arrived...as well as the ReaperCon Swag Bag! Arrivals included: Stonehaven Miniatures Giants Stonehaven Adventurers 2017 Midlam Miniatures "Winter Adventurers" Reapercon Swag Bag Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago Nickstarter While I am trying to complete the Death Guard, I did ready these groups for prime time: The Giants are nicely sized. While there are some issues with the scaling between Giant "tribes" in comparison to 5E entries, they do tower over adventurers. The Wolf Lord, who I expected to be an Ogre-sized werewolf, is massive!
  14. My last-minute WiP entry for the Iron Sleet Invitational (https://ironsleet.com/2017/10/24/invitational-firing-on-all-cylinders/) THE HERESY OF CALLAHN 7 How many years had it been since the rebellion first began on Callahan 7? For unknown decades, traitorous PDF forces lay siege to the palace of their former leader, a vile governor who thought of little but profits and nothing for safety. His shortcuts lead to a doomed populace; the atmosphere poisoned and its people dying by the acid mines and foundries that the planet was known for. The rebellion stayed at a stalemate for years, with the superior numbers of the turncoat PDF unable to overcome the superior armory of the few that stayed loyal to the governor. Even once the rebels opened the acid mines and foundries, and freed the twisted and broken mutants that manned the world beneath, the palace remained sealed. Then, the Brothers of Rust came. Their grand fleet looming overhead, the few Heretic Astartes who touched planetside turned the tide of the battle in scant days. The governor's palace fell; he and his servants bodies strung from the walls, the first of many sacrifices to the Dark Powers. Many of the PDF went with the Brothers, joining them in their endless crusade. For those who stayed, the Brothers left behind the Speakers of His Voice. These twisted preachers gave the former drudge new hope, and told them not of a distant corpse-Emperor but of a Grandfather who loved them, always and ever. Grandfather had saved them, Grandfather had uplifted them. His love had set them free. When word of the Thorn Moons and their strange wonders came, the Speakers saw their true calling; a lovely addition to Grandfather's Garden, a gift to be offered for the many favors he had bestowed upon them. They went to the mines, they went to the cities, they went and called forth the faithful. The governor had left behind many wonders; forges the faithful had toiled at their whole lives, and grand spaceships. It was providence.
  15. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Plague Zombies!

    Started quite some time ago, before the more copyright-friendly Poxwalkers were introduced; here come the Plague Zombies! It's okay that they're different, Grandfather Nurgle loves us all. Plus, Zombies seem more appropriate for Halloween.
  16. Lidless Eye Hobbies: A Nurgly Orctober

    Praise be to Nurgle! Another Orctober complete, and we're all safe and sound, painting projects finished. Time for a short rest... "Hey, you lot hear that?" "They're coming to get you, Orkra..." "Join us, Orkra...Grandfather loves you, too..." Orks can be Poxwalkers, too, ya know! Even Gork (and maybe Mork) can't help ya now. Flyboy: The Catcher: The Spiker! Grimace! Smiley! Orks+Zombies in O(r)ctober...doubly appropriate for the season!
  17. I was told that my early Orctober project did not count, as I had finished it last month. So, I decided on the last minute addition of some Ork-derived Poxwalkers to go with my current Nurgle Chaos Space Marine project: Parts are from the Warhammer Orks and Orc lines, the Nurgle Plaguekings, and the old Mutation sprue. Mostly.
  18. The most recent project has been a return to working on my Nurgle forces for 40k. I'd been finishing up some Plague Zombies I had started before 8th even hit...I'll have more of these guys in the army than the actual Poxwalkers: They were a bit cut out, but you can see the also in progress vehicles in the background. From some fun sales events, I have the bits for so so many Mantic Zombies sitting around, and plan on diversifying the Pox horde to represent most of the 40k forces post-life. Distraction, however, arrived in the form of Marine reinforcement! I love the fact that the new Marine models actually live up to their reputation of gigantic bio-engineered super-soldiers. While it is a bit sad to slowly upgrade my Chaos forces to a more focused Legion, I wound up selling off or trading my older Plague Marines who look silly compared to these new guys. The new models, while having less options and more strict builds, are quite impressive. The Deathshroud basically only have head choices (and a few swap outs for the Champion), but they do stand out: While I plan on converting most of the new character options from the Death Guard codex like the Biologus Putrifier, Foul Bloatspawn, and Ichor-Bearing Gooeycopyrightablename, I had to get the official mini for the Tallyman. Power Abacus!
  19. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Eastern Legends

    Another set complete! This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters. Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas. She's from Stonehaven. The group: The Oni: The Kitsune. The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand until I started painting! That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt. Just some Human Monks: The Kenku/Tengu: This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures: Flock!
  20. Another batch of deadly forest encounters, the kind you'd find protecting Castle Stoneskull! All miniatures are from the Castle Stoneskull set from Bones III. Vegepygmies: Plant Dragon: Death Lilies or something like that!
  21. Here's my brushwork on the long-anticipated (at least for me) Fightin' Fungi! These guys were unreached stretch goals during the original "Advanced Song of Blades & Heroes" Kickstarter, and finally came out with the recent Halfling vs. Chaos Dwarf expansion of "Axe & Brimstone" The Fungal Gladiator: The Bleeding Assassin: Goldcap, the Paladin:
  22. Just a bunch of Eastern myth themed minis, mostly from Bones III and one Kenku/Tengu Monk from Stonehaven. Oh, and some Myconids from Ganesha Games and Bones III plant monsters. More Mario than myth, I suppose. Oni close-up: Kitsune close-up: I like the male Kitsuine a lot more than I was expecting. His pose, with all its swagger, adds a lot of character. I also hadn't noticed the sake cup he was holding until I started painting.
  23. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Get Spooky

    I may have finished Orctober early this year, but that leaves plenty of time for other Halloween themed minis this year! All spookiness comes from the Bones 3 Kickstarter...actually, I think it's all from the same Crypt Expansion, except for one of the spirits. The full haunting: The Obsidian Crypt: The Graveyard Golem: The Spirits from Beyond: The true evil of the group, the Pumpkin Minions:
  24. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Nolzur's Beasts

    I've been testing out the new WizKids ready to paints. It was just the simple beasts for now, but I wasn't too impressed with the PC sculpts. I'm hoping they improve the QC for the next wave, there's some cool designs coming. The pack: The Displacer Beast: The Blink Dog:
  25. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Early Orctober

    Orctober got an early start this year, mostly due to me pouring too much green paint when I was doing the base tones on my Bones III Monsters: First, the actual Orcs! I liked the thematic continuation of the Orcs from Bones 1. Painted with them, and only cousins to the theme of Orctober, come the Hobgoblins! There were a few frustrating details on these sculpts, and some odd undercuts, but their paint scheme stayed relatively simple. I don't use Hobgoblins often; I think the only time they've shown up in anything I've run has been premade adventures where they show up as random henchmen.
