  1. Greetings! Here's a newly painted "Fantasy Adventurer" Citadel Miniature from the olden days (c1982)! FA5-2 Druid With Sickle Thanks for looking!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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:
  5. 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 ri
  6. 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..."
  7. 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
  8. 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... Tardog Wolfskinner, Ogre vagabond from the Oathsworn Heroes KS (2013) Oathsworn Miniatur
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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 dif
  12. 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 addi
  13. 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 blu
  14. 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 G
  15. 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,
  16. 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/
  17. 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:
  18. 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
  19. 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 no
  20. Today we have just a few models. All three were painted recently, though the standard was completed last (week!), since I was a little uninspired by the cloaky nature of the sculpt and struggled to find a way to finish it to my satisfaction. In the end I decided that there wasn't a lot I could do without getting unnecessarily ornate with the cloak which is really just supposed to be a darkened rag-cloak and that the head(skull!) and banner itself would serve suitably as the focal points These Skeletons are from at least 1989, and I believe that all three of these were sculpted by Aly Mor
  21. 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 a
  22. 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 o
  23. Today's update shows off an "Oldhammer" Warhammer Goblin Unit made up of 2nd-3rd Edition models, almost entirely sculpted by Kev Adams back in the day and based on Rounds and turned into a KoW regiment by virtue of some blu-tac and a movement tray. These figures have been painted over quite a few years, with many painted 5-10+ years ago, a couple last year, and the last stragglers done in the last few weeks as part of my "finish those bloody things" drive. I'll show them off in threes to start with. The command group of the unit (not that these things matter in the new edition of KoW, bu
  24. 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 overc
  25. Back in my teens, I used to finance many of my Warhammer purchases by commission painting for other people. I got to paint some cool stuff, and bought a hell of a lot of Space Marines (most of which are still unpainted to this day(!) One of the kits I painted for other people was the stuff from the MD8 Skeleton War Machines box set, which was the eighth in the Machineries of Destruction range. As with my old Dwarves, I only ever had a couple dozen of the old Undead models, and sold off most of them back in the day, excepting a few (exactly as with the Dwarves). Since Marouda's "building" an Un
