Frostgrave Necromancer Warband – Part 1

A new project always has something magical about it, and in the case of Frostgrave that's literally the way it is. As Dennis summarized nicely in his review, Frostgrave is a pretty simple setting - two rival wizards seek treasures in the frozen city Felstadt. That's it. After the flood of complex and lengthy fantasy […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Fink da Fixer

Since I rebuild the Maulers with a narrative approach and would also try to follow that in play, I've of course taken a look at the new rules and discovered the section for (in)famous coaching staff. The nice thing about the section is that the new staff are not optional but official rules, which means […]

Dead Man’s Hand: Banditos – Part 3

My third finished gang member for the Banditos is the planned leader of the gang. The dynamic pose and the aggressiveness the miniature expressed clearly called for that. The outfit was obviously inspired by Mariachibands and so I let myself be inspired by originals as well. Unfortunately, when I was looking for pictures, I quickly […]

Dead Man’s Hand: Banditos – Part 2

The turn of the year and the usual duties as a father have led to a small break in our Dead Man's Hand article series. Fortunately, since I did not tackle the project on my own, we will again have a Wild Wednesday occasionally. Finn's introduced his first gang member, Hector Villa,  some time ago. […]

Blood Bowl – Skycastle Titans Part 4

The moment I thought, "Okay, now I'll just be playing with the team", the painting contest thetacklezone.net grabbed my attention. The site is still fresh and has the option to find tournaments and leagues for Blood Bowl as well as an artwork section where you can take a look at some beautifully painted teams and […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Mascots

It is one of my habits to give each of my coaches a motivational mascot and since I have a fable for Squigs, it was once again a specimen of the red-skinned maws on two legs. The model is from Goblin Guild and captures the atmosphere of Blood Bowl quite wonderfully. Grumbla Boz was pulling […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Wannabes

More old Warhammer miniatures have gotten a stylish makeover and are now loyal fans of the Maulers. It is easy to see what effect the restauration of an old figure can have. I remember quite well that I didn't finish the musician's drums at the time because I felt burned out after more than twenty […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Hammertime!

In my last article on the Maulers I introduced Bonkh and Gabru. Today's introduction is a bit shorter, but it's a short character as well, so it seemed alright. I rummaged in my bitsbox for suitable models for Blood Bowl fans and found an old crew member of the doom diver catapult. I never had […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Fans

In the introduction, I talked about giving the team a new paintjob. As explained the team color should not be red, because I had already painted the Gouged Eyes in their classic look and after quality had suffered from a rushed attempt, I couldn't get satisfied with blue anymore either. Yellow was a color I […]

Dead Man’s Hand: Outlaws – Part 7

With Frank McMiller, the trio of McMiller's sons is complete. All in all, I used the same color scheme as on Eugene or Seamus to establish a visual connection. However, I must confess that bridging the colors to Eugene has succeeded better than on Seamus, as the color of the shirt was closer this time […]

Dead Man’s Hand: Banditos – Part 1

Even though one of McMillers gang members still haven't been introduced, it's time to turn the attention to the antagonists. Finn will take over at this point and introduce his Banditos by himself and continue our common storyline in Dead Man' Hand. After I had a long hobby break, Dino spured my interest again. I […]

Diorama photography and scenic backdrops

I really like scenic pictures of miniatures and battle scenes. They capture the stories of the scenarios we play so well. One great example are the motives on the Calendar by Stronghold Terrain they released as part of the German translation of the rulebook. Other examples are the incredibly well done pictures by Jomada / […]

Dead Man’s Hand: Outlaws – Part 6

Another Wild West Wednesday casts its shadow and with the redskin shown here, only one member remains in Killer McMiller's gang of outlaws. I've painted a Northern Union uniform for the first timewith this model, and the overall look of the model already urged to use this color combination. The pants were an experiment in […]
