  1. This is a pretty old fellow (you can see that the paint have flaked off some places due to tabletop use) that just got a new base. I never liked the "invisible man" look, so I once upon a time gave him limbs from a broken warhammer skeleton:
  2. So via the medium of eBay, Drifter and I found an interesting bundle of 40k minis. One of those, I caved and bought, because I thought she was really interesting. Image - http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/ODAwWDgwMA==/z/t9YAAOSwPcVVrff2/$_57.JPG (Linked for bewbage) I picked up the Mechanic Female Adept Tech Priest (With Axe), because... What the hey. She was listed as 48mm, but I don't think that's quite right, though it's possible she's been measured differently. I dunno. She's certainly a little on the large side (and due to her sculpt, she is very tall), but I could probably give her axe to Sir Forescale and it wouldn't look out of place, so I'm inclined to say she's a large 28mm, with typos. However, she's beautifully detailed, if made of quite a number of parts and a bit confusing at first glance. Mine also has, I think, some fairly major casting tabs or something, which is confusing life considerably, as I'm not only terrible at assembly, I'm also a huge wuss. This is how she arrived: Another link =P Cautiously dryfitting her, and there's dearest Sir Forscale =] https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/v/t1.0-9/12108143_10153375597403451_8907435325946399657_n.jpg?oh=fe722099396f158f26cc26c01833a1f2&oe=568DA310 But erhh... She scares me, haha. I may end up waiting for Drifter to get here (as he's coming to stay next week), and then have help with getting her cleaned and put together properly.
  3. I entered a painting contest at my local gaming store this past weekend. They provided primed and ready miniatures, paints, and brushes. Most of the miniatures were from the Age of Sigmar boxed set. I chose a Prosecutor which is a large winged, flying character. The Reaper site insists on uploading the pictures sideways so if anyone would like to read my review and see my three hours of handiwork go check it out: http://www.dethstruck.com/2015/09/22/warhammer-age-of-sigmar-event-or-babys-first-painting-contest/ And if so inclined give my Facebook page in my signature a like or two.
  4. Since they didn't fit in any of my other recent topics, here we have my newest Nurgle Lord, Rotmeister Gleb Festershire (who is totally not Otto Glottkin):

    Fenris Wolves

    Another set of minis painted as a learning session for the girlfriend. Basing isn't done.:
  6. These models are from Early 4th Edition Warhammer Fantasy Battle, when "Goblin Fanatics" got handed over to the Night Goblin faction (revived pretty much from earlier editions of Warhammer, and the early "C" Series models, but mostly forgotten in 3rd). As 4th Edition Models, released in 1992 they're technically not "Oldhammer" by about a year for those who care about strict definitions. (Not me, but hey - I like the history.) Unlike the last batch of goblins from a few days ago, these were all painted in the last few weeks. Four 4th Edition Night Goblin Fanatics Now the more astute amongst you will have noted that there are way too many Fanatics here to be sensible at all. As always, there's a good reason for this. I had a bunch of my own back in the day (which got started but not finished) and my friend Jared had started a Night Goblin/Savage Orc army of his own, though he never got (m)any of the models completed before losing interest and selling them off. I purchased many of the half-and-un-painted models off him, with the intent to repaint them myself one day - and ending up with way too many fanatics for a normal game of WHFB. For the most part, they've sat in a series of figure cases since then. Four More 4th Edition Night Goblin Fanatics. Including a couple repair jobs! Anyway, between Jared's goblins and my own, I ended up with quite a lot of Fanatics, who as I mentioned have done nothing since the mid-1990's besides take up space in a case. Over the years, a couple of them had their fragile chains break, and so got repaired with brass rod. So it's a ball on the end of a metal rod on the end of a chain. That's still unsafe, so it's ok! Hopefully the last four 4th Edition Night Goblin Fanatics I'll ever paint! Since one of my aims this year aside from directed army painting for KoW is to clear off my desk and shelves of half-painted, unfinished and even slightly-started stuff, it wasn't a huge stretch to extend that to the stack of figure cases that have the same in them. I mean, the reason I'm trying to finish the stuff on my desk is to avoid adding to the reams of unfinished stuff in cases, so this just follows the same ethos, albeit, slightly in reverse. These Fanatics all followed the same general scheme shown with the newer plastics that I finished recently (who were cluttering up my desk) - and were also the direct inspiration for me to pull these out and paint them up. I quite like how they turned out in crazy loose formation (though I seem to have a bit of a contrast issue with these latest photos). A horde of dangerously insane goblins swinging their big balls around! Finally and as usual - the "unit shots". Anyone familiar with KoW might be wondering how I intend to use these, as their Goblin army doesn't really have any equivalents to much of the crazy-colourful stuff in the Warhammer list, including Fanatics. My initial thoughts were to use the profiles of Twilight Kin "Blade-Dancers" (Witch Elves) as they've got lots of attacks but are fragile, but the recent Ratkin (Skaven) list also gives the option of "The Blight", which are kinda-sorta Plague Censer Bearers. Dunno for sure yet, but I'll find an appropriate profile for them once the new rules and lists are ironed out and I'm able to start playing again. Until then I'll just push on painting the semi-random crap on my desk and building "units" as I can. Given that the unit is made up of psychotic goblins swinging their balls & chains around like mad Dervishes, I've felt free to face them in various directions rather than all front-on, also with the intent to make the unit look interesting from multiple angles. Now this just leaves me with needing to figure out what to do with those new plastics and the Iron Claw Fanatics that I've painted...
  7. Here we have some Realm of Chaos figures that have recently been released from the Purgatory of a storage case and revived. These were some of the early figures I got. Bloodletters of Khorne from the original Slaves to Darkness volume of Realm of Chaos. Painted back in the day and touched up several times over the years. Pulled out of a storage case a couple of weeks ago to be rebased and lightly touched up again. The middle guy looks a bit odd in the front-on photo, but the Conga-line profile shot helps him to make more sense. These early figures might not have been the greatest of sculpts, but they had a twisted physiology that made them work really well as Daemons. I'm glad that GW has returned to a design close to the original with the recent plastics after their iterations as cosplaying budybuilders and spiky beastmen in the interim. I never had many of the original Bloodletters, and still don't. Getting them up to an even 8 (or 10, or 12) is "on the list" but they're not cheap or easily found on eBay. Back in the day, a Night Horror Demon (I guess he could be a gargoyle, but the trident is telling) got roped into the gang and has been a part of the small unit ever since. I somehow ended up with a broken Bloodletter torso, and so ended up grafting it to a spare pair of Chaos Warrior legs I had lying around after an uninspired Bear Centaur conversion. The arm is off an early Jugger rider. At some point these guys will hit the table again. I'll use Abyssal rules for KoW, though it's doubtful that I'll run a full daemonic army, and instead ally them with "The Herd" (Beastmen) and whatever Non De Plume that Warriors of Chaos end up with. They might be willing to ally with Nurgle, but not with the hated Slannesh or the duplicitous Magicians of Nurgle. I'm sure they'll also end up on a 40k table, after I get some more forces up to scratch and work out which version or combination of the rules my group will play with.
  8. This week I completed Halbarand, the Cleric from the Bones I "Heroes" set. Looking at this figure I was struck by his warhammer ;-) , and it automatically made me think of Games Workshop. This led to the idea of painting him to resemble a Space Marine in some fashion. For the full step-by-step painting write-up, please my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/06/halbarand-cleric-figure-159-of-265.html
  9. Ghostly summons, 77095 Crypt of the Vampiress, 02990 Altar of Evil, 77139 Female: Victim, (P02580C) GW Garden of Morr Scenery and skeletons. Large stuff. Some of this has been posted in separate threads before, this is when the thing is combined. Going to be an entire undead army, and pride of the shelf in a while. Edit: Now with pics. :D
  10. After last weekend, the latest unit of my old-school Ogres finally got finished, with the completion of "Bounty Hunter", who like so many other models I've been completing recently was started 10+ years ago. Without too much chatter, here they are: As I said, this guy had been part-painted and in a minis case for some amount of time probably approaching 20 years - sometime around when the others were started and the initial ones were painted, in any case. I've kept as much of the original paint I started with him and worked on the rest. Still, I had one hell of a mental block to overcome in order to finish him. Gutlagg here was basically finished years ago. I may have even shown him off before, but now his unit is finished, and he's been promoted to the unit leader. So hey! This guy has a name, but he's usually just referred to as "Ogre Thug". There are two versions of this guy with just a small variation between them. This one has a small pouch attached to his chest, while the other has a small armoured disc. Since I somehow ended up with three of this guy, including both variants, I ended up converting two of them. One can be seen here, with the original mace head replaced by a hammer head and the spike on his helmet removed. The guy showcased on this page was originally painted in an embarrassingly garish scheme. (Yes, how he appears here is heavily toned down). His weapon mod was also embarrassingly bad. So bad in fact that I don't think I took any photos of him at all before reworking him. His mace head had been replaced with an Advanced HeroQuest (Or Dark World? Something like that, anyway) Ogre's Big ugly tree-club with a spike added to it. It looked awful. I ended up adding a Mantic Ogre's 2-hander blade to it, and it looks roughly a million times better now. Here's the final, completed unit of these Ogres. I'm getting down to the last few of these old models now to paint and finish, which is both heartening and also a little sad.
  11. Got this cute little fellow in the mail the other day. Never painted anything this big, and wanted to show my progress and experiences. First I glued him together. Was really surprised about the fact that it wasn't actually necessary to use glue, yet I did it just in case. Then applied some green stuff in the cracks. The black stain on the base is me testing the rumor about washes not sticking to bones. And that was true. Luckily the rumor about mixing dish soap in the paint, to fix it, was also true. Never painted with dish soap before, so that was.. interesting. So then I covered him in a basecoat of gloss varnish, before I painted white over the green stuff, and gave him a nice wash of dark, purple ink. Once that was almost dry, I started adding a dark blue wash: Painted in the flesh, bones and eye. Also applied a drybrush of dark blue: One more drybrush and pondering on how to continue the wings: Edit: This capable young lady will be the rider:
  12. So, this is a rather big project for me. been in the planning stage for a long time now. Almost afraid to start.. I am not much fan of the egyptian parts of the warhammer undead armies, and decided I want to try having a more gothic undead army, which means creating my own stuff to proxy. I got a little carried away, and decided to make all of this into a little diorama. Ordered a ton of bits and pieces, and had to pay through the nose in government custom fees.. but what can you do? :D Anyway, here is a little test of how things will be: So far it consists of: 2xNightspectres, 77099 Ghostly summons, 77095 Dragoth the Defiler, 30010 Crypt of the Vampiress, 02990 Altar of Evil, 77139 Female: Victim, (P02580C) Shannon (body), (P02083A) Back of Throne (P02068B). .. and some jewlerybead skulls..

    Forgeworld Fimir

    This is a fimir from Forgeworld. I bought a couple for use with the Hero Quest game (I play with my brothers kids). It was the game which got me hooked on the hobby as well back in the day, so the nostalgia vibes are high. ^^ Thought I'd post it here, too. As there was a discussion about painting with washes/glazes, and this miniature is painted that way. Based white, then hit with washes until the correct darkness levels were achieved: Here it was in progress: This is a new photo. It's seen a lot of use on the tabletop since the time it was painted early last year, and shows some flaking here and there:
  14. I painted up this guy as I wanted to practice my painting of skin. I large amounts of skin pretty hard to do so a topless Ogre seemed to be a good place to practice ;) Overall I am happy with how he turned out, a little darker than I imagined he would be when I started him but a big improvement on my usual.
  15. This is what I'll be using as a casket of souls in my warhammer undead army. Finally it will be a part of a greater diorama, so it has a place to rest in the shelf. This was a lot of fun to paint. Miniatures used: Crypt of the vampiress; 02990 Ghostly Summons; 77095 (Bones) Victim, from Altar of Evil + Victim; 02580 (Unable to locate just the victim when I tried to find it again) Altar of Evil; 77139 (Bones) Base from Warhammer graveyard set Skull beads (eBay) Q-Tips :P Nudity1 Nudity2 Nudity3 Close-up of altar: Added closeup of vampire:
  16. I noticed some 40k stuff posted here, and wanted to show off these conversions I made from amazing bits; previously created by Epoch Studios. The miniatures below are used in our Necromunda games, and in Tyranid Attack. An older board game release:
  17. Last time I was at the local gaming shop, my girlfriend tagged along. She's been looking over my shoulder a lot when I fade off into fantasy-land; and when she found some "cute" miniatures, she decided she wanted to learn how to paint them. So here is the result of the first sessions. Just simple painting mechanics for the table top. I was impressed at least. :) And of course: Showing interest in my nerdy hobbies get her some extra stars. ;) She painted the one on the left. Sort of mimicking what I did on the right.
  18. Had this fellow finished for some time. Hard to take decent photos of it since it's so big: I used this blue and purple snake as my inspiration for the color scheme:

    Enigma Zombie

    This zombie comes from Enigma miniatures, Zombie horde (5):
  20. These will be Spyrers in my Necromunda campaigns. :)
  21. This is a miniature I've had for a long time. Painted it when I was young. :) Still love the model. So much personality.
  22. Large pictures and a couple more angles on Tumblr here.
  23. This is used as a spirit host in my warhammer army, or as a filler for the skeleton unit when not. Everything on this base, except the zombie, is from reaper, but I can only find the tombstone using the figure finder. There are quite a few reaper minis in my block of 50 skeletons:
  24. Female dwarves are hard to find. Especially in the good quality that Reaper has made. This is my female and male version of the Hero Quest dwarf:
  25. This fellow will get a new weapon from somewhere most likely, but the model itself is really great. :) Wight hero for Warhammer.
