Well maybe it is a bit much to call it a ‘first’ game as both Palmer and I were getting used to the new rules, looking things up and also learning new battle boards. Maybe it is more fair to call it a test game instead. I had my Dwarven Great Kingdom force and Palmer... Continue Reading →
Second of my trolls from Rockgut Troggoths. One of the best minis I have ever painted.Drugi z pomalowanych przeze mnie trolli z zestawu Rockgut Troggoths od Gamesworkshop.
Owen from Gaming with the Cooler is back with his Goblins to take on the Northern Alliance in 200pts of “The Power Stones’.
So in the middle of cropping some photos for this post I realised that I hadn’t painted the teeth on any of the goblins. So I need to go back and finish those. Not sure how that happened. These are the characters for my Age of Magic and Warlords of Erehwon forces. I am not... Continue Reading →
While I was getting some painting done yesterday I also finished assembling and priming some other minis for the Goblin force. I have a large metal Goblin rock thrower with crew, eight Goblin Spider Riders, a Goblin Sorcerer and my Goblin scenery piece. The Spider Riders are next up to get painted and then I...

The Goblin army expands as I have finished a small unit of Goblin Fanatics. These will be either Hearthguard for Age of Magic or as actual Fanatics for Warlords of Erehwon. These are the older plastic Fanatics that GW used to sell in a pack of three. They are fun looking minis but they have... Continue Reading →
Its been a bit of a while since I started them but I managed to finish off the Goblin Guard miniatures I started a few weeks ago. My hands have been bothering me for a few weeks and so not only has the progress been slow on these but they also look a little poor... Continue Reading →
Back then, in a grim and dark past, there was no such thing as washes on the market, and their counterparts, classic inks, were not as widespread as they are today. In the coming articles I will talk a little about the painting of figures in general and my personal preferences and experiences. A good […]
I just finished basing the latest additions to my Goblin force. 10 Night Goblins with spears and two Trolls. I still need to paint one more Troll for my Warlords of Erehwon army so I need to hunt up another of these older GW trolls. I think that they made six different models so I... Continue Reading →
First of my trolls from Rockgut Troggoths. One of the best minis I have ever painted. Soon I will post another two so stay tuned. Pierwszy z pomalowanych przeze mnie trolli z zestawu Rockgut Troggoths od Gamesworkshop. Świetne modele. Wkrótce kolejna dwójka.
I finished off basing the Goblins I had finished the other day. The Goblins are a bit of a different force than the Dwarves in that their point cost in Warlords of Erehwon require me to paint up more of them in order to get a 1000 point force done. Age of Magic is indifferent... Continue Reading →
The first few Goblin models are now done and waiting to be based. The bow troops are meant to be a levy unit in Age of Magic or a 10 troop unit for Warlords of Erehwon. Neither game need a ten model unit of cavalry but it just seemed easy to paint all ten at... Continue Reading →
In the background of the Maulers story, I mentioned that there was a tryout and those of you who have followed the Journey of the Maulers so far, will notice that the following two players are Rikoth and Rotfang. I always like to give the minis a small characterization which is kept open enough to […]
Some quick drybrushing, a few highlights and the squigs are done except for the basing. These are older models and so they lack some of the animation of the newer plastic figures. Most of the models don’t have ridges or horns on the body so I painted some stripes on them to break up the red on the body. These are a really quick paint job but I think that they will do for the moment. I have another unit of 9 that I will paint at some paint as well as the two handlers that I need to put together to use the Squigs in Warlords of Erehwon.
Painting for my fantasy forces continues with the addition of ten Dwarf warriors with axe and shield to the list. Dwarves with axe and shield They are done in the same colour scheme as the previous dwarf warriors and warmachine crew. I tried to do apply some scratch marks and damage to the shields but it didn’t really come out very well. I am debating and whether to repaint the areas and try again or just leave it. Squigs As mentioned previously, I will be alternating units for each force. So next up are some Squigs for the Goblin army. These will be two units of Hearthguard for Age of Magic and a unit of Gobble Dogs for Warlords of Erehwon. WoE also requires a Goblin handler for the unit which I have a model based and ready to be primed. It is a Goblin playing the bagpipes which I imagine would put the fear into any reasonable Squig.
