Here's a big batch of miniatures, no common theme, that I finished recently.
The "Eyedra" assembled as the more generic Hydra option, from "Dark Platypus Games". Thanks to the Reaper Box of Goodwill for this one.
A Ral Partha "Dwarf Thief", more suited as a Gnome to modern scale, also acquired from the Box of Goodwill.
To celebrate their return to 5E in "Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes", a Giff, 3D printed from designs from the wonderful DM Workshop.
A Goblin Monk. I believe he's originally an Orcling from Foundry/Warmonger.
Another Goblin, perhaps an Alchemist. A Warhammer Snotling.
A Dire Pillbug, originally intended as a Myconid Mount, from "Ganesha Games", in their "Fightin' Fungi" range.
Also of note is the backdrop, which are my in progress 3D printed Caverns set from "Printable Scenery"
I've never been much of a fan of GW. I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....).
And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two).
But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever.
So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a friend who lives up there and we wandered into the rather impressive GW store in the Eaton Centre. Took a look around and caught sight of this:
Apparently a new edition of Age of Sigmar is coming out this week, and these guys are a faction. Or whatever the different groups are called.
I thought, "Those are pretty cool! Flying stuff. Steampunky. I like."
Then we left. And I went and marshaled for 3 days (the support races were better, btw).
Then we met back up on Monday. And I was still thinking about the cool steampunky flying ships. So we went back and I picked up the starter. (they have 2 bigger flying ships too, but ouch, not cheap).
So, this is what they look like when you open the box:
Oye! Lots of bits. Looks like everything has options (they have a very detailed assembly guide, quite impressive). Options that presumably follow rules. Rules I'm not sure I'll ever read, let alone play.
But I may check with the local store; I think they had some folks playing something GW.
So that's all I've done with them so far, but figured I'd post and get the WIP started. These may take a bit to get going.
I have been kicking around an idea of combining #50188 Sleeping Beauty and #03600 Praying Paladin in a mini diorama.. I have even gotten so far as to open their blisters and prime the paladin..
Then, tonight, I had an Idea! See, last year when my kids and I were playing Frostgrave, I backed a kickstarter for some resin scenery . As per usual, however, by the time the scenery arrived, they had lost interest in Frostgrave.
Combined with some iffy casts, I had put the box off to the side under my desk and forgotten about it.. until tonight, that is..
What we now see here was billed as a watchtower hill, but looks like a potential mausoleum..
Add a saddled horse, maybe a couple of other party members, and "Bob's your uncle!"
I'm going to need to invest in some green stuff to clean up the cast for the 'table' top where the pillars connect as they're way off at the moment..
Alternatively, I have a 'ruined palace' that might work as well..
The second won't need as much cleanup or modification to work, also leaving the watchtower for a dragon or something to perch on at some point as well..
Here my latest work. I keep trying and trying with black: highliting black. I tried with blue for a while till I was quite happy with it, and now I’m trying with grey which is more difficult... it does show here, since it completely reads as grey skin but oh well, it’s still a job I’m happy with.
That’s Be’lakor, one of the finest demon figures ever made by any manufacturer. First chaos everchosen, first mortal to ascend to demonhood, blessed and cursed, the lord of the dark...
