Starting to catch up with pictures, again. First up are a couple old Grenadier baddies I painted just to use up some paint/knock stuff out of the way.


The Lizzard Man 1 is from the 2010 Horrors of the Marsh set in the Dragon Lords line, sculpted I've read by John Dennett. I think he's actually a pretty cool sculpt. Different, anyway. I got him from a lot on Ebay; actually rather wish I had the other two Lizzard Men in the set, too. But, anyway. I didn't do a lot with him, just kept it simple.


The Yeti is from the 5002 Monsters set . . . and kind of a poor sculpt. The legs and feet, especially, were completely different sizes. He became a victim of my trying out some off-brand "matte" sealer; the shininess is obviously deplorable. Eh.


As always, photo problems. Though I found for whatever reason I got better photos if I shot partly off the white paper background. No clue why, but yeah. So started doing that.












Thanks for looking! If you have input, I'm totally open to it, though these were pretty basic phone-it-ins, even for me.

Vintage Grenadier minis...Bonus points for that.


I like the lizzy.. The Yeti suffers from the shine and the poor sculpt.

But still a classic so it deserves some credit.


Like to see more of these.

I got lots of Grenadier stuff myself, they are still great minis.

      I just finished painting this figure yesterday. It's from the old Grenadier boxed set 'Fighting Men' #2005. Not really a whole lot to say about him, I spent about 3 hours painting him to a good tabletop level. I got a little burned out on painting for a while, feeling like I had to paint everything to a competition level. Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things. I had just forgotten that somewhere along the way.
      Anyhow, here he is, let me know what you think.

      This is a vintage mini, Grenadier Dragonman Sorcerer, I got it from a BOGW a few years ago.
      I will use him as a Demon Officer in my Children of the Grave army, because I think he looks a bit like a classic Demon.

      This is the last mini finished in December 2020, mini number 79 of the year.  I hit 97 mini if I count large minis as 2 each.  Not too shabby, my goal was to finish 50.
      So this mini is the Female Halfling II from the Julie Guthrie series 2 from Grenadier (SKU 8145).  She is the smallest mini I have painted in a long time, so I am super happy with her face.

      Hello everyone! After seeing @Kangaroorex Grenadier 9601, Black Dragon, I decided it was time for me to salvage mine from the shelf of shame. Thanks for the motivation Kangaroorex. This model was sculpted by William Watt in 1988. Unfortunately, the one I bought some years ago had a few battle scars. It has a broken horn and a broken wing claw. Its main tail stinger and tongue were also broken. As a reference, the base is 75mm wide.

      One i don't believe has been posted here before, sculpted by John Dennett.  From the giants club series, which comes as a set with Obelisk, other assorted supporting pieces,  + a map in a small box approx. the side of a paper-back book. If you collected all the various giants and follow the map, + send in 10 proof of purchase codes to Grenadier (remember those days?), you would get a free "Giant King's throne"  sent to you in the mail. I've never seen the throne, if you have it please share.
            This one is not really a giant, but a Demon named Shaeglmon who serves the Demon Queen of Chaos named Azurg. They were  trapped in a place called the Hellwaste by powerful wizards.  Shaeglmon, also called the Hound of Azurg, is the governor of the Hellwaste and commands all the Demons and Undead trapped there, waiting for the day when their prison walls fail. Occasionally brave adventurers venture to the Hellwaste, the few that return bear horrifying tales, most are never heard from again.
            Not my best work but a cool model and it's different. Most importantly, i managed to find the complete set which is rare as the cowering victim  is tiny, about the size of a modern Halfling, and apparently easily lost as I've never seen another painted one
      . Pretty sure this is one of the parties that never comes back :) Last pic includes a modern Dwarf for scale
