Posted on January 31st, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

I got this Defiler for free from a gaming buddy 6 years ago. It was in decent shape, but I did have to tear quite a bit of it a part to fix some issues. So, things aren’t exactly how I’d like them in a perfect world, but I can’t complain about a free m…

Posted on November 10th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

The painting process begins. I intend to try to imitate and corrupt the colour scheme used by one of my gaming groups armies. The main dreadnought will be painted like his black templars only rusted and corrupted to serve a darker purpose. The Painting Time to experiment with weathering powders. Not bad for a first pass. I kinda like the way this looks. Painting the first coat on the fleshy parts. I have painted the ‘eye’ mutation and had a go at the beetle carapace pieces. The spine has been basecoated. The extra pieces currently in progress. I have drybrushed…continue reading

Chaos Master of Crusade Miniature by Grim Skull Review

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

I first saw this model a few months ago and my jaw hit the floor. It’s easily the best rendition of Abaddon the Despoiler Chaos Master of Crusade that I’ve ever seen! I don’t do impulse buys, so I pondered buying it for a while before I finally pulled the trigger a few weeks ago. I had to have it! The Price The Chaos Master of Crusade is priced reasonably in my opinion. At the time of purchase it was €29.99, and the international shipping was €4.99. So, after exchange rates I paid around $42 for it shipped. Now, that is…continue reading
