Dangerous side quests: Chaos Undivided!

One less thing to distract me from my Nighthaunt army; one less excuse to not get things done! This has been a little passion project of mine for a while now; getting all of my metal chaos minis painted and based. It took a few months but I finally finished. I absolutely love metal chaos…

Dangerous side quests: The Chapel Perilous

My latest bit of folk-horror inspired terrain leans heavily on Authurian mythology and the concept of the “Chapel Perilous” as a place of significance and power: the end of of a journey; the fulfilment of obligation, a place of revelation , or even of destruction. Build-wise this was actually pretty quick, simple and intuitive. I…

Dangerous side quests: keeping it in the family

A while back I was lucky enough to get on board and back a kickstarter by Andy over at Meridian Miniatures which was creating a set of lovely minis based of some of the excellent grimdark artwork of Blackcrabart. The minis arrived a couple of weeks ago and they are absolute beauties! They have a…

Dangerous side quests: A chainsaw maniac

I had this guy sat in a box for a long while, one of those models that I felt to intimidated too paint on account of how damn cool he is. Anyway I decided to paint him as an entry for the @eavier.metalfb #eadbanger2021 painting comp. Had a lot of fun working on a larger…

I’m alive! These guys… not so much.

For some reason it feels like a while since my last post. I was away to England over the weekend to visit family so maybe that is why. Also had less hobby time than usual. But progress is progress, however small. I have three more Chainrasps finished off! I’m very happy again with the paint…

Dangerous side quests: Angry little men

Once again I let myself get distracted… I saw these new Hobgrot minis and thought they would be great fun to paint. I happened to spy some for a ludicrously cheap deal on eBay and well, you know how it goes… I was determined however to not have this turn into a whole new project,…

Dangerous side quests: The stout hearted knight

One my many little hobby indulgences is to do the occasional giveaway contest on my Instagram account. I recently surpassed 3000 follows over on IG and ran a giveaway offering to kitbash and build a unique mini for two winners. This Knight is the first of those two prizes and I must say I really…

Welcome to the Weald

Bit of an announcement this post… For the past eight months a ragtag band of wargamers and mini painters have been working on a set of fantasy skirmish rules for wargaming in a girmdark fantasy world called The Weald. I have the honour of being one of those people. And now… its finally here! Today…

Standing on the shoulders of a giant (pile of corpses)…

He’s finished; Crusty Valentine… erm, I mean Custard Verdigris, no wait it’s… ah sod it: The Craven King. I had a bit of fun with this guy… the wispy floating base felt far too “spooky” and not as regal, nor as horrific, as a nice pile of rotting corpses bearing him aloft across the battlefield….
