Now that's what I call advanced necromancy!That clanky thing below has been waiting for some paintjob more than 10 years, that's for sure. It's been staggering around and there were few times it's almost been dismantled because of it's precious, oldie parts and bits...It's old shit, and each and every piece of oldie crap I possess has some story to tell.As you can see there are some bits from Gorkamorka stuff. Story is back, back days I tried to start orky warband and even got some second hand models - all painted. In fact they were like drowning in paint... It was not a problem to wash metal models but there was also placcy trukk.Those days I had no idea breaks fluid does miracle on painted models and I was using really strong pipes cleaner instead... Usually it was ok but this time I prepared WAY too strong mixture and the plastic mostly melted...No more Gorkamorka for poor Demi =(But some time later I gathered the remains, added some more vehicle parts and attached it onto cardboard box I've made
Today we have a real gem. Painted for the #paintabob competition on the Oldhammer Facebook page, this rotting monarch is from Essex Miniatures. He looks like he's spent several weeks down a well. He was ludicrously fun to paint.When painting this fellow, I used the painting technique for rotting flesh used by Tyler Mengel of Mengel Miniatures. Here's the recipe should you wish to try it yourself.As you can see, it's mostly washes. This suits Olley sculpts extremely well. It's also much more fun to play about with washes instead of laboriously layering skin, which suddenly becomes a cloak. Or an ear. Or a portal into the nightmare dimension.King Slough might be a bit past his prime, but he still gets a big screamy face shield.I painted the rest of the king to match my other undead. He's certainly going to be going into my Warcry warband, probably as a seneschal. It'll give me a lot of chuckles to see him go to town on some svelt chaos warband, imagining him shouting "What's that sonny?" and "Here's how we did
Alright so I've been a little quiet, working on too many things at once but at least it means being busy (mostly) doing stuff and amongst the many things I was working on, there's this team of Adeptus mechnicus designed by Bob Olley.After the really pleasing challenge around Trish Carden a few months back, I've decided to ask Bob Olley to judge another friendly competition based in his work this time ! So this month was the #paintabob marathon for plenty of us and great fun it was.I really wondered about which models I would pick as Bob's sculpted a mind blowingly large amount of stuff and I finally settled for his iconic Adpetus Mechanicus range.

Hello everyone!Back to the 80s to minis that are calmly my teenagers (Gnome is!) today.I have a really big fondness for old Games Workshop models. I have nice associations with the first sessions in WFRP, which we passionately created in the mid-90s, delighting with these old models on the chalk pages of the rulebook. That is why, from time to time, I will buy a really oldhammer mini and remember it while painting.I invite you to watch Ranger (C07 series) with long bow and Gnome (C11 series 1985) today.Witam serdecznie!Dziś powrót do lat 80tych do figurek, które spokojnie są moimi równolatkami (Gnom jest!).Mam naprawdę duży sentyment do starych modeli Games Workshop. Mam miłe skojarzenia z pierwszymi sesjami w WFRP, które namiętnie tworzyliśmy w połowie lat 90tych, zachwycając tymi starymi modelami na kredowych stronach podręcznika. Dlatego też, od czasu
Hello! With great pleasure I would like to present you the army of the Empire for Warmaster. Almost a thousand models, all in 10mm scale. It was a really interesting project that our painting team faced. It is also not our last word about the big armies… A quick reminder of what is in the army: Pikemen Halabardiers Crossbowmens Shooters Longswords Mage & Two Generals The Allied Ogre Unit Cavalry and a few additional heroes will appear in a separate entry. I invite you to see the photos, as well as check older posts in the Warmaster category Commission painting services – email@example.com or Messenger.
Hello! After a long break with Warmaster, I would like to present you with the one more post devoted to the army of the Empire. These are of course Empire Pikemens. Thirty bases holds two hundred and forty models in 10mm scale. If you’ve ever wondered what makes small scales special, it’s the scale of battles. Only here can you feel the atmosphere of a real battle, where the troops represented by hundreds of figurines clash with each other. In the next entry you will find a group photo of the whole army, so don’t forget to visit the website regularly and follow us on social media. If you want us to paint your models – firstname.lastname@example.org or Messenger.
To continue the preparation of more Oldhammer, it is time to strip some plastic. I showed you the Rhino the last time, as well as some stripping of metal parts. Now we move on to the next level of complexity, larger kits and more fragile materials. Get a properly sized container and get on to […]
Warmly welcome!Long, ah long I haven't painted anything from Scibor's Monstrous Miniatures. Therefore, it's time to make up for it and today I invite you to the first post about Tolkien's Thorin's Company. In this series, I will present the team of dwarves, and paint which is painted on, followers of the Lonely Mountain. In the first entry Gloin, Bofur and Oin. I painted the last two a few years ago and now I just changed the names on the bases to match the design. What is new is the dwarf model that will serve me as Gloin. Just painted, while maintaining the characteristic features to fit the rest.I hope you like my idea of alternative dwarves from "Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien.GloinQuest for EreborIn TA 2799, Glóin was known to have fought in the Battle of Azanulbizar, the last battle of the War of the Dwarves and Orcs. In TA 2941, Glóin and his brother Óin, along with his cousins Dwalin and Balin, were among the Dwarves accompanying Thorin and Company during
A Rhino is probably one of the, if not the, most sold vehicle kits from the Warhammer range. It has been around far before the 2nd edition of Warhammer 40k and as the kit lending its chassis to a couple of further Space Marine vehicles quite numerous. When I got to know the kit in […]
I am currently preparing the Cruel Seas review, along with the Flotillas and larger ships. I mentioned the resin ships in my last short update, Civilans, Romans and Boats, and I find it very appealing to build something completely different to the very dominant 28mm kits that I usually cover. Assembly goes fast, as does […]
Alright so it's been quite a while since I last picked a brush and although I still knew which end to use, I had to get a model that would boost my painting mojo up. And you know what kind of models do that right ? Yes indeed, a Jes Goodwin ogre was probably the best pick !Now I've been meaning to paint my ogre collection for a while but you know how it is, there's always a new project, I also had this crazy man-bear to paint for a friend so I thought I could paint both of those for him as a token of gratitude for his renowned kindness and generosity !Read Moar Skullz »

Hi All,On the Friday a group of us met up at Warhammer World and played in a linked campaign using warbands we had rolled up from the Realm of Chaos books. We rotated opponents and played three scenarios.Here is the campaign from my Champion's perspective.So I got very lucky with objective placement in the first game. I barely outlasted my opponent in the second game, we apparently attacked each other with the marked unit. In the third game the bewitched/possessed sword really messed with me. I had won it after the first scenario and it essentially made my champion useless for the next two battles.Anyway, loads of fun, fantastic models and bonkers shenanigans occurring.I may do a break down of my warband next before moving on to the next battle report.Thanks for looking.
Hi All,Well, I made it to BOYL this year and overcame my hang ups about driving abroad and doubts about my ability to finish my figures, or my skill at the hobby.I took tons of pictures, but I tried to distill it down to a few pages in this comic report. Enjoy.I wish I had talked to more people, but I didn't know who everyone was and I wasn't sure how to talk to some of the luminaries of Warhammer. But that's on me, everyone at the event was very nice.Anyway, as I said in the comic report, you should try to make it to this event if you enjoy the old games and figures.I'd also like to welcome Alan Luiz to the blog. Thanks for following.
Since Wednesday the Colony 87 Kickstarter is online. The range moved from Jon Boyce to Crooked Dice and has its third wave crowdfunded. And the campaign was funded within 15 minutes (with myself among the first backers!) and now already has unlocked the initial four stretch goals. Might be even more as there is a […]
