I finished up my third monster over the weekend – The Werebear! Just like the two previous monsters, the Werebear was a joy to paint. This break from historicals has been just what I needed. I can’t remember the last time I got to grab my p…

Massive Darkness – The Monsters – Low Troll and High Troll

Posted on April 9th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I’m taking a bit of break from Historicals. Lord knows I love ’em but I need a palate cleanser. Lucky for me, CMONs Massive Darkness is loaded with something like 32 fantastic Roaming Monsters and each one is calling out to be painted. Unde…

Line of sight had dropped to less than 25 yards. From his firing position behind the courtyard wall he had a perfect view of the woods; but not much else. Even though he had fought through North Africa and survived the landings at Normandy, he was scared. No training could have prepared him for this.  […]

Hype is a hell of thing. And because of the hype […]
