Vikings

Vikings

I got given of a couple of sprues of Victrix Ltd. dark ages vikings. These are excellent miniatures, Victrix quality of sculpting, casting and production has come on leaps and bounds, I had some French Napoleonics and some ancient greeks from them in the past, but these are superior quality in every aspect. I painted […]

Necromunda Bounty Hunter Gang

Necromunda Bounty Hunter Gang

There are those who dwell in the depth of the underhive, they are the rejected, the disavowed, the the forgotten and those who want to be are seeking oblivion. Bound together by nothing other than their mutual desolation the Congress of Eight are a desperate clan of hive scum headhunters…

Start Collecting… Squats!

Last year sadly one of my favourite Hobby Shops, Ian Allen in Birmingham closed down. I was gutted that it went, but did pick up a few bargains in the shut down sale, one of them was a Kharadon Overlords start collecting set. I could have built this ‘out of the box’ and added it […]

Painting the stuff you own

Painting the stuff you own

Not much to say on this one, the brilliant Ann’s Imaturium blog put out a challenge for the month to paint the crap out of the stuff you own, the rules, simply, paint stuff you own not buy new stuff… This tied in nicely with a personal hobby goal of my own, I decided that […]

Painting update – Genestealers

Painting update – Genestealers

Upon reaching the halfway point with my Heroquest 28 project I decided to take a little rest from it (that and getting some of the parts I need for the dungeontilses) whilst #socialdistancing measures are in place is a bit hard). So I’m going to do a few posts of the painting I’ve been up […]

#Fembruary #HQ28 Chaos Sorcerer

Half way through the HQ minis.., the Chaos Sorcerer. For this one I decided to mix it up a little, And bring things up to date, I used one of the female barbarians form Warhammer underworlds Nightvault Godsworn Hunt warband, which also fits nicely into the #fembrary celebration.

HQ28 update Chaos and Goblins

HQ28 update Chaos and Goblins

Latest update on my Heroquest 28 project. First two chaos warriors and goblins. For the Chaos warriors I used two of the amazing new slaves to darkness miniatures, these are brilliant sculpts, the only changes I made were to give them both Axes and head swaps. The goblins are from the Gloomspite Gitz range. I […]

HQ28 Undead

HQ28 Undead

Using on with the HeroQuest 28 miniatures, here are the first four Undead. 3 Skeletons and a zombie I was quite undecided at first on the direction to go with on the Skeletons, I have some of the old school GW skeleton hoard figures, and thought about getting hold of some of the Ossiarch Bone […]

A couple more HQ28 orks

A couple more HQ28 orks

Here are the next two Orks in the Heroquest 28 project. These two represent the other two weapon types from the original HQ box. The mace and the cleaver. I also added a few details such as the skull trophy and the shields. I think these look quite a bit more vicious than the ones […]

HQ28 Fimir… of a sort

HQ28 Fimir… of a sort

Fimir where always going to pose the biggest challenge in this project as there is no direct equivalent in the current Games Workshop range. The Fimir were one of the creations original to Games Workshop in the early days of Warhammer fantasy, it is a shame they have let this race disappear, it would be […]
