Entry #8 to AHPC VIII: The Screaming Antelope & Terrain for ‘Kingdom Death’

Posted on January 29th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Hi All!Our gaming group has been playing a lot of ‘Kingdom Death’ lately, and I have to say it’s a very addictive game – very nasty and adult, but addictive. The core campaign is called ‘People of the Lantern’ and lasts, if you’re lucky, around 30…

Nemesis Board Game launches on Kickstarter

Posted on January 17th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

There is some debate amongst film fans as to which of the first two Alien films are the best – let’s ignore what happened after Aliens, as it all goes somewhat downhill from there. Alien is a true horror film set in space. OK, the premise w…

Posted on December 21st, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

For our eighth edition of the Painting Challenge, the theme is ‘Challenge Ate’, and so celebrates all things scary, creepy and monstrous. I could easily go off on a tangent on how this could reflect the socio-political landscape of parts of our world t…

Well, as the saying goes, better late than never, indeed we are a few days late in posting the mammoth load of Grinning Skull studios publications that were released last month. I actually think that it’s a new record here, which also leaves us only 31 releases left before we hit 200 Grinning Skull publications in […]

Getting Close To The End Of Zomtober

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

I am still doubting that the figures I have planned will be completely finished by the close of play tomorrow. That said, practically everything now has a base layer of paint. Putting a wash on shouldn’t take too long, it is not an exact process. If I …
