Church of Dagon - finished!

Heil Cthulhu!In the previous post there was Church of Dagon posse for Dracula's America - but only half finished. Since that I've managed to find enough time away from miserable life to deal with remaining models.Any specific about them?Not really actually - which is strange because I am big fan of Lovecraft and Call of Cthulhu...Working on both North Star and RAFM models was fun: all models are really cool, nicely casted and characterful. It was nice change from olive everywhere Bolt Action stuff.I added quite a lot of grass tufts on the bases because we decided such a swampy enviroment fits the Church much better than sandy weird west.That's just it I'm afraid, time for pics:Muties and psychos:Shooties:HQ:Whole depraved family:Next hobby thing planned is either group of OLD necromutants for OLD Warzone or another wave of Bolt Action shit. I should finally get Rangers squad...

Church of Dagon

Ia! Ia! Ia!I was planning to post post it bit earlier, but finishing half of the gang took me bit longer than I expected. What is this anyway?Few months back the friend of mine proudly announced he ordered 3 or 4 warbands for Dracula's America skirmish game. At first I wasn't much keen on starting new game, especially taking place in a world of cowboys and Dracula's depraved minions...Everything changed when I learnt there's also Church of Dagon posse, and somehow whole fluff wasn't silly any longer. As for the game it's ok, standard match takes like 1,5 hrs and you only need 5-10 models. It's also space-wise: battlefield is only 36" x 36".  Game seems to be much more fun for more than 2 players.What I like much more is miniatures range: these are metal (no plastic / shitecast bullcrap) and very characterful pieces. Perfect for pulp gaming as well as for RPG characters (Call of Cthulhu 1920 that is). Working on the models was total fun and really cannot wait to see remaining gangers done.The box con

End Of The Week - And I Am Reasonably Please (35)

This week I am more than happy with my painting performance. Thirty five figures done and dusted so I am quite content. Admittedly the majority were relatively simple and most were on the small side but a fair amount of work has gone into them so I am not counting them as a half figure.I have a figure that I used as a black elf leader but when I saw these I thought they would do what I wanted. A king queen and a couple of palace guards. The touch of purple is possibly too much but I thought it gave them a nice imperial feel.Every king and queen need a few hench elves. I am not sure about the pointy hats. I did think about doing a christmas game featuring black elves so maybe it will work.Three more of the black tree designs high elves painted as black elves. I have already done a set of these last year but a few more can't hurt. This is not really a black elf but a mage from thr Frostgrave Nickstarter. I could think of no really useful purpose for him before but he seems to fit with the bad guys.I have d

End Of The Week - ?/^&$%" (0)

Some progress has been made, never as much as I would like. Most of the current project and the background project now has a base colour and a wash although there are a few I have barely touched. Almost not detailing has been done and that is what generally takes the time. What I have done so far looks pretty good to me. If I pushed it today I would probably finish but I have friends here so that is unlikely to happen. My plan is basically to add another five figures into the mix. If I can finish them next week that would put be back on track. A bit of basing of some more elves (alfar) has been done. These are planned as black alfar for the Viking Game.Today's post is a little bit early so maybe I am being a little bit premature in saying this but I haven't finished any figures again this week. It has been a very busy week for me. Painting has played a major part in it but unfortunately the paint has been emulsion and the objects involved were walls. Someone now has a Slytherin themed bedroom. After a series
