Another bunch of hyenas

Posted on February 16th, 2017 under . Posted by

Conan core box is nearing the end with only the heroes left to do. I’ll probably take a break from this when that’s done before doing the add-ons. I’m also working on “Silver Tower” which has much better models and make painting these long series of identical models really painful. Conan’s models are pretty good though, hyenas were fun.

Je me rapproche de la fin de la boite de base pour Conan. Je ferais les héros puis passerait a autre chose pour quelques temps avant de reprendre la suite avec les add-ons de la campagne Kickstarter. Je suis en train de faire du Warhammer Quest en ce moment et les figurines sont super, surtout comparé aces longues series identiques. Mais bon…les modèles pour Conan sont sympas, les hyènes sont top.

Tabletop World Water Well

Tabletop World Water Well, it’s one of their smaller kit. I did while painting the Garden of Morr which I’ll update later. A neat little piece…

Le puits de Tabletop World que j’ai finis quand je peignais le “Garden of Morr”. Une jolie petite pièce…

Blood Bowl Human Team

Posted on February 7th, 2017 under . Posted by

Human team from core box. I followed pretty much original artwork, quite a nice team much better than previous one I did ages ago. Skavens up next for March as I will do one team per month.

L’équipe d’humains de la boite de base, peinte en suivant les originaux. Tres sympa comme groupe et bien mieux que ceux de la précédente version. A suivre les Skavens pour le mois de Mars, je ferais une équipe par mois.

Tabletop World Townhouse 3

Posted on February 2nd, 2017 under . Posted by

That’s the third townhouse done. I’ll do the mansion next when I come back to Tabletop models. I’m doing some GW bits at the moment. I’ll do some group shots too as the city is growing.

Voila la troisième maison de ville Tabletop World finie. Je vais faire la “Mansion” quand je reprends sur cette gamme mais je finis quelques pièces GW d’abord. Je ferais aussi des photos de groupe car la ville commence a bien grandir.


Conan Pirates

Posted on January 30th, 2017 under . Posted by

A big batch of pirates for Conan done with a few special characters. I tried to vary them a bit but time is of the essence here. The main pirate model is nice enough but 15 of them is a shore, anyway closing down on these large batch of models.


Une longue série de pirates avec quelques personnages spéciaux. J’ai essaye de varier les couleurs mais c’est surtout un exercice de rapidité plus qu’autre chose. La figurine pirate de base est chouette mais en faire 15 est très chiant malheureusement. 

Mansions of Madness: Beyond the Threshold

Posted on January 26th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Mansions of Madness: Beyond the Threshold models. So you get 4 horrors and 2 heroes, a few tiles and welcomed clue tokens and 2 new scenarios that you can download. I wish they’d have added more dice and a few more things as I found the box a bit bare really for the price. Models are decent but nothing special, 4 identical models which is always a downer. I’ve kept the same basing and style to fit with the rest of collection.

Les figurines de la dernière expansion, aucune idée du nom en Français ou même si c’est traduit. Il y a 4 monstres et 2 héros, 2 nouveaux scénarios a télécharger et des tuiles. Ils auraient pu rajouter des dés et quelques trucs en plus car je la trouve un peu vide la boite et chère pour ce qu’il y a dedans. J’ai peints et soclé dans le même style que mes autres figurines de la collection.

Blood Bowl, the Orcs

Posted on January 15th, 2017 under . Posted by

This had to be the first team to paint as they have always been a favourite. New models are really awesome and the humans are nearly finished. So much looking forward to play this again…J’ai biens sur commence avec les orques car ils sont superbes. L…

Townhouse 2 from Tabletop World

Posted on January 11th, 2017 under . Posted by

First post of the year..I took time off painting during the whole Christmas Holiday so it felt quite refreshing to go back to the bench. I also used that time to think a lot about what to paint and prioritise so you should see a lot of scenery coming u…

Shadows of Camelot

Posted on December 9th, 2016 under . Posted by

It’s not quite the hottest game at the moment but I fancied upgrading the components. This has to be the quickest job I’ve ever done, probably between 5 to 7 hours. I didn’t bother with the mold lines on the catapults and rushed right through it. This is so much better than grey plastic though. Models are a bit weird, some OK some meh…

Pas vraiment le jeu de plateau a la mode en ce moment mais j’avais envie de peindre les minis. Ce fut mega-rapide, peut être 5-6 heures de travail en total. Je n’ai même pas nettoyé les catapultes…C’est bien mieux que le plastic a l’arrivée même si les figurines sont vraiment inégales.

Conan, picts and skeletons

Posted on December 4th, 2016 under . Posted by

I’m making some progress on the Conan Board Game, going as fast as I can. That’s the picts and skeletons done, I try to paint some special characters at the same time.

J’avance bien sur Conan, j’essaie de faire aussi vite que possible.

Mounted Tyranid Hierophant Bio-Titan

Posted on November 29th, 2016 under , . Posted by

This is a conversion work I finished a few weeks ago. The idea was to use this 40k model and fit it with a rider in a more conventional Fantasy style. The rider is a model Privateer-Press and the titan from Forge World. Overall, it was a difficult job with the mount being so huge. I had to paint everything in bits which I don’t usually like to do. The painting pattern was quite simple for the Titan and I followed original Artwork for the rider. In the end, it makes quite an impressive piece I think.

Un gros projet que j’ai terminé il y a quelques semaines. L’idée était d’adapter cette figurine 40k dans un contexte plus “Fantasy”. La monture est de chez Privateer Press et le titan de chez Forge World. La réalisation fut compliquée, j’ai du tout peindre démonté, ce que je n’aime pas faire. Le style de peinture était assez simple et j’ai un peu suivi la peinture originale pour la monture. A l’arrivée, ca fait quand même une pièce sacrement impressionnante.
