Chaos Thug Life 2

Posted on November 17th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The Citadel Miniatures Chaos Thug range is melting pot of influences and ideas.  Unlike Games Workshop’s modern Chaos Marauders, who are uniformly bearded barbarians, the classic Thug range had odd chaps with mullets, Saracen-flavoured archers and even stray ninjas. Hot as thuggery. It makes the individual Thugs fun to paint, as they’re each full of …

Nemesis Chapter Primaris Intercessor Sergeant Space Marine

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

I painted my first Primaris Space Marine!  He’s Nemesis Chapter – an Ultramarines successor chapter with origins in the dark days of the Horus Heresy. Sergeant Glaucon, 2nd Battle Company, 3rd Squad, Nemesis Chapter.  His banner reads ΝΕΜΕΣΙΣ – “nemesis” in Greek capitals. This Intercessor Sergeant, from Games Workshop’s Dark Imperium starter set, is largely …

Citadel Call of Cthulhu Gumshoe Detective

Over at the turbo-niche Night Horrors and Gothic Horror group, Ashley’s running a Halloween painting competition – paint one of these mythological or Lovecraftian pieces from the titular ranges by Citadel Miniatures. “Here’s looking at you, kid.” Games Workshop had the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game licence in 1985–1987, and released a whole slew of …

Squiggy Stardust – the Orctober Squig

Posted on October 30th, 2017 under . Posted by

It’s Orctober, and as my initial plan to model and paint a Warhammer 40,000 scale Ork Spleenrippa  has stalled, I fired out this David Bowie inspired Squig.  Presenting Squiggy Stardust. He could lick you by smiling. Other musical Ork mashup ideas considered were: The Notorious S.Q.U.I.G. Red Grot Chili Peppers Squig Squig Sputniks Björk Tina …

Chaos Thug Life

Posted on October 27th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Chaos Thugs are a Warhammer range released in several batches between 1986 and 1991.  Games Workshop stamped them out of existence in 1994, omitting them from Warhammer Armies: Chaos.  Thugs are firmly anchored solely in Warhammer’s past, quintessential incarnations of Oldhammer, meaning they command decent prices on the collector’s market. I regret going with the …

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 […]
