A Second Step into Frostgrave

Posted on January 27th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

I completed my second game of Frostgrave last week and the system is slowly growing on me. I can definitely say it is fun. We are playing a campaign, you can find my opponents views here. The demands on a terrain collection that the game makes are huge…

Modern/NF figs for Sale

Posted on January 21st, 2016 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

More figs looking for a good home. I thought we’d get in some Fistful of Kung Fu games while I prepped for our upcoming fantasy SoBH campaign, but we decided otherwise. So… here are three near future/modern figs sets designed to represent Police, Corporate, and Criminal factions. Sets are $40 each, which includes ConUS Shipping.  … Continue reading Modern/NF figs for Sale

Post-Apoc figs for Sale

Posted on January 21st, 2016 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Hi. Hope this finds you well and winning all your games. Time for me to cull the herd. My wife will be traveling to India in February to work at an orphanage in Hyderabad. (Really. Here’s the place.) She’ll be gone ten days, during which I will more than likely eat lots of take-out, paint … Continue reading Post-Apoc figs for Sale

Railroad Terrain

Posted on January 21st, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Railroad terrain looks great on a Warmachine or Malifaux board and despite the fact I don’t play those games offline anymore I still want to get these pieces painted up. These railway pieces have been lying around in my cabinet for a long time and so …

A step further into Frostgrave

Posted on January 19th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

I played my first campaign game of Frostgrave last week and my second is coming up tonight. It was fun. I still hold a few reservations about the game but more on those later. The game played far better than the first. Mainly because we understood the …

Celestial Vindicators Liberators

Posted on January 18th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

There is nothing as good as a bunch of finished miniatures. I am pretty happy with how these Stormcast came out and I think the colour scheme of the Celestial Vindicators was a good choice to base mine upon. I think the more muted tones suit the models…

A Foray into Frostgrave

Posted on January 15th, 2016 under , . Posted by

Somehow I managed to start yet another fantasy system. this time it is Frostgrave. Owen from Farfarawy.org modified a VASSAL module to allow us to try the system out remotely. As it is relatively simple we were able to get a game done without too much …

Celestial Vindicator Liberator Prime

Posted on January 13th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Finally this model is complete and the regiment is too. I will take some group shots tomorrow and post it up on Friday or Monday. The fact that there is a little more gold on this model actually made him faster to paint. I am hoping that this will make…

Another Vindicator

Posted on January 7th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

The fourth is complete and the end is in sight, for this regiment at least. Again nothing special here beyond what you have seen on the previous three. I still can’t decide upon the shoulder pad scheme and I haven’t even attempted to improve the hammer…

Wyrd Stuff: Rogue Necromancy

Posted on January 4th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

The Malifaux painting spree continues and I got the Rogue Necromancy finished. He isn’t the greatest model ever produced but I do like him still. Painting him was easy enough and surprisingly I enjoyed it. I can often find painting models a bit of a ch…

Well, I hope that the new year is treating you all well, and that you enjoyed your festivities. I’m back with another Grim’s Dungeons of Doom article/tutorial this time dealing with some rickety old wooden stairs to connect your upper levels and platform risers to the rest of your other components we’ve already dealt with.

Wyrd Stuff: Dead Doxy 2

Posted on December 29th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

The painting continues apace. As these were half completed an aeon ago it hasn’t been too hard to get them finished off. I went with purple for this lady. It is another colour I hate. I guess though that the only way to improve it to continually expand…

Wyrd Stuff: Dead Doxy

Posted on December 27th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

My camera work is getting worse and simply because I changed the room I am taking the photographs in. I will try to figure out a better way to take them in the future. I have had a few of Wyrd Miniatures products lying around only half done for a year …

Stormcast Triumvirate Completed

Posted on December 21st, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Three done and a lot more to go. I am actually starting to enjoy painting these more. The blending of the blues is a little annoying but it has started to go faster. It still takes an age to get a single model done. The sheer size of the models means I…

Game Night Shots

Posted on December 19th, 2015 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Quick Gun Crawl last Tues eve as a salvage crew was contracted to infiltrate an abandoned bio-tech research lab and download files from three specific terminals. “Oh and there might be rogue specimens wandering the halls. If you would be so kind? Thanks.” Salvagers got off to a rough start, reaching Terminal One but losing … Continue reading Game Night Shots

Celestial Vindicators

Very slow progress is being made with my Celestial Vindicator Brotherhood. I haven’t made any changes to the scheme and I dont intend to really. I do have a few decisions still to make. I want to work on my silver a little more to make it pop. I am pre…

A Year of Malifaux

Posted on December 15th, 2015 under , . Posted by

It didn’t seem like a busy year of gaming but while chatting post-game last week I came to the realisation that I have played thirty games of Malifaux this year. You can read a lot about them here. I even managed to play through two campaigns using th…

A Desperate Escort

Posted on December 14th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

I have definitely been playing a lot of SAGA recently. I have managed the odd game of Malifaux via VASSAL also but my club nights are dominated by the early medieval period. We will probably move onto some Muskets and Tomahawks after we conclude this …

Recent brushwork

Juggling too many plates (Tis the season, I suppose) but we finished up our Post Apoc campaign. Matt and Derek battled the undead and a shedload of muties in the Necropolis of San Domingo to emerge as champions of the wasteland. So well done. We’ll be playing some pickup games of Fistful of Kung Fu … Continue reading Recent brushwork

In this edition of Grim’s Dungeons of Doom, we are going to deal with the creation of bone piles for our mini dungeon. These can be used as debris or even better (as I plan on doing) as undead respawn markers. Every respectable dungeon should have a few of these to warn those pesky adventurer […]

Duardin Auxillaries

Posted on November 30th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

These Duardin prove that I am unable to stick with a project for very long. I am not really sure why I started painting these but somehow I did. All I wanted to do was a sample model. I have had these models for a very long time. I collected a Dwarf a…

Well, here I am again, with a later than  scheduled terrain making post, I know it’s been a while, but haven’t had much chance to do much with a PC for what seems like ages. So, while not fitting the whole dungeon theme entirely, we kick off this belated Grim’s Dungeons of Doom article with […]
