We are going to have to work a deal one of these days glitter!



These will make great Tomb Kings.

And there's a choice in oval or square bases as well.

I prefer squares, but I don't game.


You can always PM me.

Onepagerules also has some free files on MMF.

You are gonna have to build a fold down table from the wall to mount the whole project!

I store it all in my display cabinets, one day there will be Army Shots for which I will need the dining table.

It's a good thing we ordered a bigger table, it will arrive wednesday...

A little more story / Worldbuilding, it helps me to come up with things and paint more.

Hope you like these little stories.



A Caravan brings goods and rumours.


Suleiman and Zafira were watching the caravan entering the city, it was like a parade of strange animals and people.

Some merchants travelled in wagons pulled by all kinds of beasts, the most common ones, Oxen, but there were also more exotic creatures like gigantic lizardlike animals, enormous birds and such. Mercenaries from all over the World acted as guards and added to the exotic look of the caravan with their different gear and mounts.

There was even a constructed mechanical scorpion, Zafira was thrilled seeing it all.


I could really go for something to eat now, Suleiman said.

Let's go to the Bazaar, that's where the merchants will end up anyway.

Zafira agreed, looking at another huge insectlike construct, wait..that was no construct! Some merchant rode on a huge scarab beetle packed with goods.

What a strange column this was parading through the streets.


Arriving at the Bazaar the smells of herbs, spices, honey and grilled meat welcomed her.

She bought a large snack dripping with honey while Suleiman enjoyed a flatbread with grilled meat.

Then they sat down at a Tea Parlour for tea and more snacks.

A few Caravan Guards sat at a table next to them, something they were discussing drew Suleiman's attention, he winked at Zafire and leaned a little back in his chair, listening to the conversation.


I'm telling you Shouf! I'm not making this up!

I've seen it myself, there are Undead walking around there and they are guarding something!


Ah, come on Ali, you and your tales! There is no such thing as living death!

You probably saw some of those ancient statues!


I did see those as well, Ali replied, and they MOVED!!!

Shouf shook his head, of course my friend, of course, and where exactly was this place you said?

You don't believe me don't you? Ali said.

I don't blame you, It does sound weird, but I'm telling you, I'm not lying.

There is foul magic at work there, you know those old ruins five miles West from the Khuza Pyramid?

Go look for yourself if you dare!



Suleiman leaned forward to Zafira again, that was interesting, that maybe something worthwile to investigate!

Creating a simple modular board for taking pics of minis.

Not all Desert Dwellers will look good in the Temple of Apophis some will need to a more peaceful or generic set up.

I can add modular pieces on it to create scenes.


First steps.

      Helo All,

      Thank you for looking.

      Hi all! How do you do?
      It's been a while since I last shared a mini here. I recently converted and painted one for my egyptian-themed Frostgrave warband.
      Since the mini is a female and has bare breasts, I am supposed -as per the forum rules- to post links to the pictures instead of displaying them directly in the post. So consider this topic slightly NSFW.
      To begin with, here is the mini I started with:
      https://www.reapermini.com/search/yanara https://legolemquireve.files.wordpress.com/2022/01/p1090389.jpg  
      For the conversion, here's what I did:
      Sawed the head off. A brutal surgery but a necessary one. [picture] Replaced the head with a bald one from Statuesque Miniatures. [picture] Filed off the remaining hair with a Dremmel power tool. [picture] Filed off the belt decoration and replace it with an Ankh cross. Resculpted the piece of fur on her shoulders and upper back. Cut off the top of her staff and replace it with an egyptian staff decoration (a double ostrich feather ornament)  
      The result after the conversion: https://legolemquireve.files.wordpress.com/2022/06/p1090830.jpg
      After priming in off-white: https://legolemquireve.files.wordpress.com/2022/06/p1090832.jpg
      And finally, the painted mini: [Front Picture] / [Side Picture 1] / [Side Picture 2] / [Back Picture] / [Close-up Picture]
      If you want to see the pictures directly, you may visit my blog post (although it's written in french): https://legolemquireve.wordpress.com/2022/06/29/sandgrave-djesa-la-thaumaturge/

      Just some bulk skeletons...nothing special. The spears were pretty bent when I got them. I worked with them a little to straighten them out, but figured I wouldn't spend too much time driving myself crazy (these were cheapies, after all 🙂). The detail on these guys is fairly soft, but they get the job done on the table.
      Sorry for the quality on the group shot. Wide shots aren't my camera phone's specialty.

      A litte surprise attack ( No WIP). A quick job , I painted her in 2 hours to try some stuff out.
      She's from Ironwind Metals ( Ral Partha) and she is a lookalike of Vampirella, only a "bit" more "developed".
      She might not be nude but she wears so little I decided to link the Pics ..because well she might as well be naked.
      I had fun painting her and I tried a marble green base, not sure if this worked out, but practice practice...right?
      Paints involved..The Reaper Vampire Skin Triad..Scale 75 Antares Red, Inktense Red, Chestnut Ink , Elven Gold, Decay Black and Deep Blue.
                                 Vallejo Dark Forest Green , Reaper Olive Green Triad.
      *** Ooohh I like my new outfit...Thx Wolfie!!!  SMOOCH!!!****
      ***  Blushes*** You're welcome..it's nothing ***
      *** Giggle..now now, It's not entirely nothing, It's not like I'm not wearing anything***
      **** ARE YOU DONE PLAYING WITH THAT TROLLUP???, Put that tongue back in your mouth and get to work!!!***
      *** Yes Countess...It's not what it looked like Countess...I was just...Oh Shut up you dog!***
      *** Wow that one has a temper...see ya around wolfie...***
      It's been while, so for thos of you who don't know who the Countess is?
