Another progress update on the 30 Days, 30 Miniatures painting challenge currently ongoing. This time only two figures completed.Firstly, a Moor from Gripping Beast that is needed to complete a stand of heavy infantry. This figure was originally started earlier this year and has just languished behind everything else.Next, is a plastic skeleton from Citadel or Games Workshop or whatever they are now branded.Originally started in last year's AHPCIX, it wasn't finished before the end of the challenge. Might have been supersition as it would have been the 13th of its lot, might not have. So its finished now and regardless of when it was finished it will always be the 13th of its lot.Day 19 - 9 figures completedBetter get a move on as time is marching on.Cheers for now
Hi All,After submitting my Army pose post for The Old World Army Challenge, I realized how terrible it was. You can see the post here.First I did a terrible panorama.I realized after putting the post together that I had left out one skeleton archer because I had to glue the giant arrow back in his hand.I had wanted to recreate the Kev Adams pose from Warhammer Armies, but i couldn't manage it in the space I was using. As you can see I was already annoyed because I had been "disturbing" my kids while they were trying to watch Futurama.Iannick made a comment about my expression, so I fixed it.Anyway, I neglected to put the army total in my wrap up.10 Grim Reapers 120 points1 Skull Chucker + 3 man Crew 60 points20 Zombies with Standard and Musician 88 points10 Skeleton Archers 120 points1 10th Lvl Liche Doombinder 150 points5 Death Riders 105 points1 Plague Cart 100 pointsBonus Army(?) Standard Bearer 24 points?For a total of 1031 points and 72 or so painted figures.I wish I had time to bask in that, but I don't
!Juan I de Aragón en toda su gloria! Esta miniatura no muerta se ve genial pintada y ademas se puede jugar también como un caballero bretón si le ponemos el yelmo completo. Hemos tomado algunas fotos y un video en 360º. Un día menos y la cuenta atrás sigue mientras continuamos luchando por mostraros todas las cosas antes de que termine la campaña. Juan I es uno de nuestros personajes favoritos. Es una miniatura muy versátil que tanto los nigromantes como los comandantes vivos sabrán apreciar. Con tres diferentes cascos y dos opciones distintas de armamento, será una miniatura monopose, pero con un montón de opciones. Jugarlo como caballero no muerto o como caballero bretón… esa es la cuestión.Pero dejemos de hablar y vamos a ver la excelente pintura de Giye en este video en 360º. También tenemos una galería de fotos para que os fijéis en los detalles. Esta es la matriz de Juan I. Como podéis ver son tres cabezas muy diferentes y dos opciones de armamento. Una miniatura realmente dual. Echa
Galliard de Galliners… o el caballero de la gallina como se podría hacer llamar. Otra gran miniatura no muerta para nuestra campaña en kickstarter. Este caballero no muerto ha sido pintada por Giye así que sin más dilación vamos a ver todos los detalles Lo cierto es que creo que esta miniatura resulta muy original, incluso si reconoces la cabeza y el yelmo sin la gallina en lo alto. Fue una pena, pero tuvimos un accidente mientras tomábamos las fotos. Es por ello que la guarda de la espada esta rota, algo que no habría pasado si en vez de ser resina de impresión 3d hubiese sido resina plástica. Otro gran caballero no muertoBueno, con guarda o sin ella, se ve el gran trabajo de pintura que ha hecho Giye con Galliard que luce espectacular. Vamos a ver el video. Y unas cuantas fotografías más para que os fijéis bien en los detalles. Mientras tomábamos las fotos no estábamos muy seguros si enfocar el rostro o a la gallina… así que he aquí su momento de gloria. Bueno, la campaña ya casi ha
El Dip ha sido una miniatura que ha cosechado bastante éxito. Por ello hemos pensado que lo mismos había que esculpir unos cuantos más… asi que aquí tenéis a nuestra última incorporación a la campaña de no muertos, la Manada de Dips. Ya sabéis que los planes, generalmente empiezan como planeaste y luego acaban de aquella manera… esto es un poco lo que nos ha pasado con The Fallen County of Ampurias, en kickstarter. Iba a ser un proyecto pequeñito y bueno al final hemos acabado esculpiendo mas miniaturas antes de que acabe la campaña. Como pudisteis leer en nuestro anterior artículo La Leyenda del Dip, esta maléfica criatura viene directamente desde el infierno. En Castilla Oscura puedes jugar toda una manada de Dips, así que fue una gran excusa para esculpir unos cuantos más un poco más pequeños. La manada de Dips, nuestro último AddonQuizá decidas jugarlos como huargos o lobos no muertos. Unicamente recuerda, !es tu juego, tus miniaturas y tus reglas! Aquí tenéis a la manada de Dips
Several miniatures for one of my boardgames: Descent Second Edition. We also use them during RPG sessions and for wargaming. One of the Merriods was painted by my sister thus they are different. Kilka maźniętych na początku tego roku figurek do gry planszowej Descent. Ot tak żeby się lepiej grało. Modele są wykorzystywane również do sesji RPG oraz bitewniaków. Ciemnoniebieski Merrioda pomalowała moja siostra dllatego modele są inne.
Returning to a favourite genre and style of figure; the Undead and in this case Wights from Mithril (left of picture) and Citadel. These are a recent entry to the AHPC IX. There are more of these to be painted and rebased for use in a skirmish game coming to a gaming table near you soon. A game when the world was older and darker and a warrior could carve a name for themselves worthy of a saga.More undead to follow shortly.Cheers for now
Still a lot on the painting table and not nearly enough time to complete it all for the Challenge's end on Wednesday. Main areas that will be concentrated on include the 15mm Crusaders, 25mm Dark Elves, 28mm Late Roman horse archers and more 28mm skeletons.The Normans will have to wait until post challenge.The board is set...
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 […]
Moving forward with another three sets of figures. First up, Late Roman archers from Gripping Beast. These will be ideal for supporting missile units and skirmishers. Also pictured are the first Crusader cavalry in 15mm as well as some command figures. Next some classic plastic skeletons from Citadel along with the occasional metal figure in here too.Last up, original Normans from Foundry. These have had more colour added with two layers of flesh added and the base coat for the armour and metallics.More to follow along with a rebasing update.Cheers for now.
Hi All,It seems like I always finish models sometime during the week and then always forget to share them with you all on PTS.I have had to wait 24 hours to share them here due to the rules of the Old World Army Challenge. If you like seeing painted figures you should check that blog out.So here they are:5 Death Riders. From a black base coat I drybrushed using my Reaper Bone Triad. I enjoyed doing the verdigris helmets and skull design, although in a rush to finish the shields I seem to have wiped off the Spectral Glow wash a little more than I'd like.The Skull Chucker and crew were also built up from a black undercoat. For my rusted metal effect I used craft paint (Charcoal Grey, Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Orange, Bright Orange) followed by a drybrush of Blackened Steel.Lastly, 3 Skeleton Warriors from the old Skeleton Regiment box. The person who sold me these also had the metal command conversion blister and the metal coffin lid shields. These were base coated in white and, more or less, painted fol
A work in update on some 28mm Undead figures from Mithril Miniatures and Citadel.Top left is a Mithril Miniatures Wight. Base coated white then painted with Technical paint Nighthaunt Gloom. The dried figure has then been worked upto what you see using the Gloom paint mixed with white. Bloody marvelous effect can be obtained here. Citadel really need to expand this range as this really does give good results. Top right and bottom left shows two Citadel wights. Both have been painted using layers. The top figure using Vallejo Game Colours Scruvy, Jade and Foul Green with a final touch of white added in. The second wight has been using Foundry Teal AB & C again with some white added as a final highlight. Lastly some Citadel Skeleton base coated in Army Painter Skeleton Bone waiting for the next stage of painting. Some other pieces are nearing completion and will hopefully be shown in the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge next week. Hmmm, some of the pics could be better. Chee
It's been a week, and there's stuff to look at.Like weathervane head here. He's a weapon attachment for the upcoming Infernals faction in Warmachine (I believe they're calling the Hordes logo on this stuff a mis-label), and given that some of the preview spoilers featured weird blobs of flesh as units, does that mean human warriors accompany the flesh things or do the humans come with their own infantry in infernals like some kind of mixed sylvaneth force? Time may tell...Harlequin Versh is a minicrate model of the Order of Illuminati hunter guy, Harlan Versh.While seemingly out of character for the guy (the original model looks very much like above. Grim and stalwart, pointing his gun at evil, as one does), the contrast between the steady stance and what will be a motleyed coat with peasant cape may prove to be a game winner. Quite a few don't seem to like it already, though.They can send me their stuff if they like. I'll have an army of Harlequins named Versh.Then Gunmeister games previewed their Undead Dea
Below is the first submission from this year's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge or AHPC IX for short. The figures are all from 15mm.co.uk and are a part of a HOTT army that grows yearly. One stand of archers and one of crossbows; plus skirmishers from each.There will be a few more for this army in the remainder of the challenge which will complete the army for the time being.All the figures are painted with base, wash and dry brush for a table top standard suitable for this scale.The composite picture will become a feature in the blog from know on, allowing different angles to be shown together.Next will be work in progress on a long stalled project.Cheers for now
Hi All,Well, it was not my intention to go over a week before my next post but that's how it goes sometimes.I got a little bit of work yesterday. Painted Earth Brown on some bases and stuck down sand on the IG bases. During the week I knocked out a bunch of dry brushing on the bone stuff, primed some skeletons in white, and finished building the last few figures of the Imperial Guard Command Section I need for next weekend. (Typing that out makes me nervous.)Death Riders and Skull Chucker.Skeleton Regiment.Lieutenant and Command Section, plus Grenade Launcher Guardsman that I need.Anyway, I need to go off and take another training course for coaching. They're wanting us to all have accreditation as well as background checks etc.Happy painting everyone.
