Ramshackle Oldhammer Acolyte

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

Curtis over at Ramshackle did a limited run of figures for Bring Out Your Lead 2016, and I’ve painted one to accompany Clyro Burns. As an event, BOYL focuses on “Oldhammer”, so Curtis sculpted this model holding an old hammer.  Ha! I’ve converted my figure with a new face shaved off a Citadel Judge Dredd […]

Ok, my apologies for missing yesterday’s post in this “post a day” month, but things were out of my control. I’ll make up for that today with two posts, the first being this really great looking retro “Realm of Chaos” inspired KS. For those of you old enough to remember GW’s old “Realm of Chaos” stuff […]

Kublacon 2017 – Mordheim

Hi All,While we didn’t actually play in this game, we did watch it. We gave up our spot to someone else because we thought we were going to play Blood Bowl. My uncareful reading didn’t make it clear to me that it was league play and bring your own team…

Crowdfunding Spotlight: 28mm Renaissance Skeleton Army Miniatures Kickstarter

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

It might not surprise you that, here at the Grinning Skull, we like all things skeletal. So, it would be rude to not include these babies here in Crowdfunding Spotlight. These figures are brought to you by Skull & Crown, a name that’s apt considering the subject! As you can see the inspired skeleton designs, […]

  So, it’s been ages since I’ve posted a Crowdfunding Spotlight article here, so without further a do, I want to draw your attention to these interesting little fellers. Old School Miniatures have a campaign running for these 28mm Alpine Gnomes, which I have to say, have a distinctly Oldhammer feel like some thing from […]

WHFB Griffin

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

I got this (Elector Count on a) Griffin from Ebay a couple of months ago for the bargain price of £11.21.  The kit is by Michael Perry, which was released about 2005 and it a beast of a model with a wingspan of  around 160mm.  It had been lightly, partially painted over a white undercoat and all in all it wasn’t too bad.  I didn’t strip it, I just gave it an all over dark brown wash, drilled a hole to pin on the rider and started painting.  I painted the body and face using the multi layer technique and the wash and dry brush technique for the wings.  It’s took me a couple of weekend to complete as I have a lot of real life stuff going on at the minute, but I’ll hopefully get the Elector Count done next weekend and post the completed model.  Until then here’s a preview of the Griffin.

Finally here’s a picture from the Ebay listing as you can see the rider doesn’t have a shield, so I’ve given it a plastic shield in preparation for painting.
Cheers

Pitch invasion and Oldhammery !

Posted on June 2nd, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

From my reports about Inquisitor Greyfax and the Shadow Legion, you might have understood I attened a gaming convention last Week end.
Well all of this started with a brilliant game of warhammer 3rd edition. The game was organised and masterfully GMed by Nico and I really invite you to go read his report of the game as well as the previous preparation posts. You’ll have a look in a true genius’ mind.
