  1. A bit of a bugger to paint, but well worth it.
  2. Went a bit old-school. I always loved these minis back in the day, but only actually bought some last year.
  3. Another Ebay find! The base is foamboard, sand, and Vallejo Mud & Grass paint with some Citadel Stirland Battlemire. The model was a ton of fun to paint.
  4. Greetings! Here's a newly painted "Fantasy Adventurer" Citadel Miniature from the olden days (c1982)! FA5-2 Druid With Sickle Thanks for looking!
  5. Greetings! FF53 - Ogre from Citadel miniatures "Fiend Factory" range, early 1980's. I'm guessing that for older members of the forums, this old Citadel mini might be considered somewhat of a classic, maybe even iconic? Back in the day, It's imagery definately played a part in getting me into the hobby as a wee lad. I never owned it back then but recently picked one up & painted it up! Thanks for looking.
  6. Greetings! Vietnam Zombie with gun from Citadel Miniatures of old! This was a limited release which was linked with both the Chainsaw Warrior board game & 40K Chaos. Thanks for looking!
  7. Paintedfor a painting league in another forum: "Bring Out Your Dead!" I envision this as a wandering band who collects the dead. Sometimes they need to make ther cargo dead first. Being death warmed over themselves, they do not know what else to do with their unlives. lots more pictures beneath the click:
  8. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/classic-dwarves-by-kev-adams/x/10803452?mc_cid=6322f6fd25&mc_eid=a7826e4565#/ Overview EOE Presents a Harlequin Miniatures Production - 36 Classic Oldhammer Dwarves by Kev Adams These wonderful miniatures were commissioned by Dean Edwards for Harlequin Miniatures from Kev Adams back in 1994. We want to bring them back to their original glory. They are being remolded to cast in lead-free pewter by the skillful (ish) hands of John Olsen and his crew of slightly abused staff. Fletcher stood proudly upon the ridge of the mountain and looked down upon the Blood River, its distinctive reddish colour leeching out from the mountain’s massive iron ore reserves. The iron they refined gave his family both strength and wealth but still the Bone Clans attacked. Three times in the last cycle the Goblins had assaulted his homeland and three times they had been driven back. His Spies told him that they believed the Dwarves of the Blood River to be mining for gold rather than iron and they would continue their assaults until they were successful. The Goblins were stupid … and soon they would be dead. 36 Excellently sculpted Kev Adams Dwarves. A very rare change in design and a rare opportunity to help us bring them back to the gaming table.

  9. 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..."
  10. Early last year, I pledged on Kickstarter for the Circle of Chaos Warband by Curtis Fell of Ramshackle Games fame, but I did not add on for the Rhinotaur at that time. ...So when I received the original 7 minis of the Circle, I kicked myself for not adding it on. The minis were weird-in-a-good-way designs by several sculptors, and great quality casts, and were all painted late last year. When the shiny syndrome at last overpowered me, I contacted Mr Fell, and he graciously ordred a Rhinotaur cast up and sent to me. After prepping, I added one of my 3D printed oval bases, and it has been standing around on my desk ever since, trying to get my attention. Which it in the end, did. "Very few mutations survive conception. Fewer still survive birth. Some are so twisted and hideous, the host's birthing screams must be silenced to maintain a shred of sanity. This begins the tale of one such horror, unleashed upon a blighted world. A beast of war and ruin so terrible a strong man's guts turn to water at the sight of it. A pair of ancient cleaving swords it yields, whirling and feinting despite its armored bulk. It's mighty horns used to batter and break and pierce, are sharp enough to penetrate a dragon's hide. But despite all of this, despite the horrible carnage, the hacking, the trampling, the impaling, the worst of it is its battle cry. Pig snorting and squealing in battle, reaching its fervor. And suddenly, blood covered and splattered with gore, it opens its jagged mouth and emits the piercing yet pure and joyful squeals of a baby." -from the KS update introducing the Rhinotaur addon. The completed warband in all it's glory. Curtis Fell / Ramshackle Games is officially on my "Kickstarter good performers" list Good communication, great product, timely fulfilment. A+ would back again. The Rhinotaur aka Grey Death Circle of Chaos Oldhammer Warband KS by Cutris Fell Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Metal. Heavy Metal 75x45mm 3D printed oval lipped base.
  11. Back in 2013, Oathsworn had a kickstarter for a range of oldhammery heroes, with dwarves, halflings, and a few monsters like the efreet and shambling mound that I have painted earlier. I am very slowly getting round to them, one at a time: This is Tardog Wolfskinner, Ogre vagabond from that set. Full of that oldhammer character and charm. Now if only I could remenber where I put the rest of those minis...

  12. I recently bought a lot of 50+ older style plastic Citadel Skeletons off Ebay for less than the price of a single box of 10 new ones, and have spent a few evenings plonking away at them. When I received the horde in the mail, many of the minis were reduced to parts, with many a broken arm and leg. A few were painted, but most were not. All needed thorough cleaning with both knife and with soapy water. After the requisite cleaning up and prep-work was done, I had enough parts to build 45 skellies with hand weapons or spears -one with battle damage where the arms would be, plus 12 archers. Most of the parts were from the second style of skeletons made by GW in the 90s, but a few were from the older style made in the 80s. Those brought back many fond memories, as I built a box of them way back when. The original builder of these had also converted a few of them to have, say 4 arms, or battle damaged weapons and many shields were glued to the hands at an angle to suggest the builder did not know how a shield actually is held. No matter. I left these as they were. Painted in batches of 10, 20 and then 15 over the course of three evenings. Archers: I used some 30mm lipped "display" bases that I bought in bulk from Reaper some time ago to prepare for the third Bones KS shipment (that is several months delayed, but should soon be in hand, hopefully already in May or in June.) And, yes, the 30mm bases do take up more space on the shelf and lets fewer models into base contact in game, but they do look so much better than 25mm rounds or even the original 20mm squares. 45 Skeleton Warriors Warhammer Fantasy Battles, undead faction Games Workshop, 1980s and 90s HIPS plastic 30mm bases
  13. Just realized I never got around to taking show off pictures of this guy. I had some frosting issues which killed my momentum in my WIP (here) for him, and then he sat around waiting to be fixed. The fix mostly worked, but you'll see a few shots where the light is a little more direct where he ended up shiny. Not a big deal as in most lighting he looks fine. The last few shots will have an alternate rider's top half, I swapped the original Wight out for the top half of Reaper's Judas Bloodspire, sans cape.
  14. For Minivember I will try to do a different model each day (duplicates or similar models (from the same unit or suchlike still only count as one!). If you want to see the rest of my minivember minis, feel free to have a look at my painting blog..I won't be posting each and every one here, just the Reaper minis and maybe some that I find especially interesting. Yes, they will be speedpaints, just like all my minis. The Circle of Chaos is an oldhammer-style warband of 7 models very much in the Realm of Chaos vein. Mutants and misfits all. The models in the warband were contributed by different sculptors and kickstarted by Curtis Fell of Ramshackle games fame. At last I have finished the last one to do, completing the warband. (apart from the add on Rhinotaur that I regrettably did not pledge for. Shoulda done dat. and the completed circle warband: That leaves my Minivember tally at 30 unique minis, out of the 40 minis in total painted this month. Minivember Challenge Goal met. Hoody Hoo!

  15. I have been doing a lot of sculpting recently and I felt the need to break up all of that putty work with some speed painting. for some reason I got it in my head a few weeks ago that I had to paint some of the classic chaos warriors I remember seeing as a child. I picked up some champions of Slaanesh on the secondary market and the speed painting was just the justification that I had needed ;). I was happy that I actually did manage to finish it this weekend - yes! I stuck to a classic palate for Slaanesh in order to keep the painting fast and lighthearted. I'm looking forward to a few additional chaos models from the same era to round out a warband. These oldhammer pieces are really fun.
  16. I have been going through some of my boxes of older minis to find some I can sell to fund my massive overspending on minis and kickstarters. And I came across these excellent old blighters. Not selling those. Oh no. Gave them a lick o'paint instead. With these I continued experimenting with my old inks over a zenithal primer, light grey over black. Each was given a wash in a different old blueish ink (the pink one was red ink), and when dry I messed a bit around with different colours/effects on each of them, knocking back the shininess by finishing with a drybrush with very light blue-white (pink white). Nothing too amibtious. They ended up quite similar. Anyhow, I think they turned out well. Pink and Blue Horrors of Tzeentch Warhammer / Realm of Chaos (sometime in the 1980s) Metal 25mm bases
  17. I was heavily inspired with Malefactus work and I wanted to paint a Goblin old style and sculpt / add some mushrooms. The Goblin is from Metal Magic ( now OOP). The Mushrooms , some are sculpted ( the larger and the round ones) and the pointy ones are Resin from Ristul's Market. My WIP for those interested. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66981-goblin-with-mushrooms-metal-magic-by-xherman1964/?hl=bagpipe The little guy has just consumed some mushrooms for inspiration on his latest musical creation. I wonder if the other Goblins will like his music. Without further ado, the pics.
  18. Between my bigger projects ( Tuma and Stree Violence) I wanted to do something small. Heavily inspired by Malefactus his Last Hurrah Project, I wanted to do something wih mushrooms and Goblins. I had this little Goblin Musician from Metal Magic laying around since the 90's , about time right? He is a nice little guy with a bagpipe, I sculpted the base with Milliput and some mushrooms, and added some resin mushrooms from Ristul's Market. Based ... More to follow soon,
  19. Here is some progress I've made with my "vintage orcs" warband project. A project I'm working on very slowly, only when I feel in the mood. Orcs, from various boxes/games. Common traits: being old and plastics. A group of Goblins. The 4th edition ones are godawful dull and uninspiring, but I wanted some just for nostalgia... Group shot of the warband up to now. I've also branched out to Reaper Bones: for now, just an Hobgoblin among them. Bigger pics here: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2016/01/24/orchi-vintage-parte-2/
  20. This year the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. With the refurbishment of the old house complete and it now up for sale, I have at last some time to paint a miniature or two. It has been more than a month since I touched a brush smaller than two inches wide, and I have come to the conclusion that I utterly detest redacorating houses, especially everything that involves masking tape. So anyway, here goes: Many years ago, I got hold of some of the old school Chaos Dwarfs, from the legendary time when the Chaos Dwarfs were small chaos warriors rather than snaggle-toothed curly-bearded Sumerian look-alikes. This one is a fuse lighter from one of the war machines. Sadly, I do not have any of said war machines. Yet. And he/she/it wears the studded leather stocking that was a hallmark of followers of Slaanesh at the time with pride!

  21. This year the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. from the lead age strata of Ye Pile of Olde... Some lead miniatures from the 80s, Citadel Zombies. A bit worse for wear, one of them is missing an arm. Luckily no sign of any lead rot or such. They were taken out of their pack ages ago, which probably saved them. But since these are zombies of the not-entirely-fresh variety, I don't see the missing arm as much of a problem. One of the others have probably had it for lunch. Zombies Warhammer (Oldhammer) Citadel Miniatures Lead metal from the 80s 25mm bases
  22. How do you best follow up a post featuring a Dwarven Slayer? With Trolls, of course! I've shown two of these trolls before, just two weeks past a year ago now, as it happens. Last week, while stuck for something to paint I asked Marouda to choose some models for me to finish and as a result, I finally got a third finished for them. Hill troll suffered a broken wrist many years ago, and with my meager skills of the day I "repaired" it by pinning and then wrapping wire around the join, as though it were bound with rope. Not the neatest of jobs, but it works passably, and I've not got the desire to destroy his wrist again in an attempt to repair it. The two that have already been shown were painted Blue, as GW-style "Stone Trolls" probably sometime during the period of 4th Edition of WHFB. Most likely the one with the boulder overhead "Cave Troll" was painted as he was a pretty good approximation of a Stone Troll. "Warrior Troll" was no doubt painted to match, and the "new" guy, "Hill Troll" was definitely started with the other two in mind. He just took a lot longer before I got around to completing him! These three together will make up a regiment-sized unit for my eventual Kings of War (Orc and) Goblin Army, made up of (mostly) older Citadel figures. Not to be confused with the Moria Goblins who I've been working on a fair bit this year. In the short-to-medium-term, there might be some crossover between the two, but only until I manage to get both playable. As it happens, I've just found that these three comprise 3/4 of the entire original C20 Troll range... queue a week-long delay in publishing this post to do a bit more BTS work... ...and also as it happens, I've also got their fourth, here, who just needed a little touching up and a rebasing from his old, 90's-style green-flocked base. I'll share Swamp Troll again sometime soonish with a bit of luck when I sort him out a pair of proper mates. And the final shot - all four of the C20 Troll Class of '87. Finally completed!
