Preslotta Citadel Miniatures Gnorman Gnoll Reinforcements

Posted on September 28th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Decades of exposure to Games Workshop’s marketing materials has conditioned me not to paint individual figures, but regiments, and then armies.  There was no stopping at just one Gnorman Gnoll.  Gnot on your gnelly.  eBay trawling has turned up two more preslotta gems from 1981–3. Lord Tisserand with his hawk Antonius, accompanied by two Gnolls. …

Choose Your Own Adventurers – Episode 11: Indiana Jones, Xenoarchaeologist

Posted on September 18th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Warhammer 40,000 and archaeology.  My two hobbies melded together.  There’s not been this much combination of leisure pursuits since the notorious Inquisitor Bingedrink. “1988 Rogue Trader Citadel miniature?  That belongs in a museum.” You might wonder what Indy is doing in the forty-first millennium, but seems Games Workshop had a serious thing for the archeologist …

Chaos Talisman Trio

Posted on September 14th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

One day at Games Workshop HQ, Aly Morrison came up to me with a big bag of Talisman figures.  “I found this bag of scrabby old models in my basement, and I was gonna bin ’em.  Then I remembered you like scrabby old stuff.”  I was over the moon.  Here’s the first three painted. The …

Doctor Who Arc of Infinity Time Lord Omega

Posted on September 6th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Time to kick off my collection of Doctor Who villains!  Presenting Omega, the Time Lord who decided to name himself after his exam grades.  It’s the Gallifreyan equivalent of “F Minus”, which now I say out loud does sound like a good rapper name MC F Minus in da house, rappity rappity rap. This miniature …

Choose Your Own Adventurers – Episode 8: Steppenwolf, Mutant Outlander

Posted on September 1st, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Over at the Emporium of Rogue Dreams, Mark Elster organised a summer competition to model and paint a Rogue Trader mutant, judged by Warhammer 40,000 supremo Andy Chambers himself.  Seeing other people get their entries together (like axiom’s and asslessman’s) inspired me to make my own mutant. Presenting Steppenwolf, Mutant Outlander. “I am a man […]

Peter Davison Fifth Doctor Who by Harlequin

Posted on August 25th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve got a soft spot for Peter Davison’s Fifth Doctor. Probably because his run on Doctor Who started with a couple of very strong science fiction stories – Logopolis and Castrovalva. And I think Earthshock is the definitive Cyberman story. So I started my new collection of 28mm Doctor Who miniatures with him.  It’s the first […]

Gnollin the Gnoll – Citadel Pre-slotta Norman Great Goblin

Posted on August 22nd, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

In the lands of the north, where the black rocks stand guard against the cold sea, in the dark night that is very long, the men of the north lands sit by their great log fires and they tell a tale… Exploring Citadel Miniatures’ pre-slotta ranges is a real journey of discovery and wonder for […]

Rogue Trader Lizard – Space Cowboy

Posted on August 15th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

The Rogue Trader Lizard is an obscure collector’s piece.  Designed to take the plastic RTB01 Space Marines, this miniature was only available through Mail Order for a brief time in 1988.  I nabbed one for a bargain years ago, but never had the willpower or funds to collect enough to make a full squad (as, […]

Even Less Exciting 30th Anniversary Primaris Marines

Posted on August 9th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Games Workshop have shown off their special edition figure for the 30th anniversary of Warhammer 40,000.

Special editions are normally incredibly characterful, with loads of unique details and an iconic pose. Not this model. I tried to imagine the i…

Sneeky Rim – Goblin Acolyte

Posted on August 7th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Delving deep within my Lead Mountain for robed acolytes I came across this Mantic Goblin Sneek.  He’s been painted with fire-motif robes as he will be joining my warband as one of Clyro Burns’ assistant sorcerers. This miniature is out of production, which is weird as I still think of Mantic Games as the new […]

Late Imperial Roman General

Posted on August 3rd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Back in 2014 I proudly declared I was starting a Late Imperial Roman army, and showed off my first test model.  I adhered to the time-honoured tradition of planning an army, buying an army, telling everyone about my plans… then only painting one figure before quietly packing everything away and never mentioning it again.   But […]

Trooper Altryn Greymore – Ironclaw Space Pirate

Posted on July 24th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Having painted two Space Pirates, Paradox Zeeman and Nebuli Tsar, for Choose Your Own Adventurers, I wanted to grow my pirate gang.  Here’s Trooper Altryn Greymore, otherwise known as Banzai Jones from the Ironclaw Space Pirate range. He was a lot of fun to paint – as with all Ironclaw figures it features Bob Olley’s […]
