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….

Pressing on with Nighthaunt

More progress made… another five chainrasps in the finished pile! First two are some of my favourite sculpts for this line, really great characterful models and a joy to paint. Also these three smaller ones done, again some light conversions, mainly texture or weapon swaps. Also this guy… Finally, I’ve also just put up a…

Dangerous side quests – The Gaol Oak

I had the same dream again last night. I lay in warm, wet earth. It pulsed around me like a great beast. Faintly came a voice; a voice I knew. I pulled myself up from the sucking mud to find the source. The speaker’s words, I could not make out. Standing, I could see young…

Getting to know some ghosts

This week has been pretty good for progress on the Nighthaunt… I managed to get four Chainrasps completed so far, along with another five that are very close, this means I’ve almost got two completed Chainrasp units. I also used the old coke-can banner trick which I haven’t done in years and it turned out…

Dangerous side quests #1

Okay I also recently joined a WW2 mini and diorama group. I’ve never built, painted or played WW2 but they are a decent bunch and it seemed like a great chance to broaden my hobby skills and pick up new tricks and ideas. The group have a challange on to build a mini diorama… I…

Nighthaunt – Chainrasp progress #1

My foray back into the Nighthaunt army has so far been small but satisfying. I have plenty of Chainrasps sat in boxes on sprue so decided to attack those first. Given I have already made a bunch previously I wanted to make adjustments and conversions to the fresh batch to keep them from looking too…

A new (old) project: resurrecting the Nighthaunt

I’m starting a blog… yay. But what the hell exactly should I write about? Well it turns out that I’ve set myself the task of diving back into my half finished (at best) Nighthaunt army. So far consisting mainly of minis from the Mortal Realms magazine and a few others I’ve picked up along the…
