More RBG Norse

Posted on December 6, 2015 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)

It’s probably about time I made a blog post because as usual I’ve let this slide a bit and completely lost track of how long it’s been since my last post. To be honest I’m finding Facebook infinitely better for throwing quick pics on so if you’re so inclined keep an eye on that. Anyway, this time it’s more Red Box Games stuff. Again it’s Norse types for a growing warband from another commission to that showed in my last post. Six more in the queue and...

RBG and some pulp goodness

Posted on November 14, 2015 at 11:25 AM Comments comments (0)

I’ve got a few bits and pieces to show this time around. First up is a small band of Red Box Games Norse (although I reckon the might be an Aenglish model or two in there). I’ve already painted versions of a couple of these models but the others are ‘new’ to me. Always good to paint, especially in these muted colour schemes.

Next are a mixed bunch of pulp t...

Reaper RPG characters

Posted on October 31, 2015 at 4:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Just a couple of things to show. Two models from Reaper Miniatures, a fighter (02860 Harald in the reaper catalogue) and what appears to have been a limited edition charity model, the Wizard of Faith. Both models needed mounting on dungeon floor bases but as tends to be the case with many Reaper models they had integral bases that needed removing. I kept most of the wizard’s base intact though to avoid too much messing around with it. The flagstone floor tiles were just cut from thin pl...

Tsuba RJW, Crooked Dice

Posted on October 24, 2015 at 11:25 AM Comments comments (0)

As usual I’ve neglected my blog in favour of Facebook so I’m sure I’m a few updates behind here. I’ve finally finished off the last of the Tsuba Miniatures Russo-Japanese War Japanese. Lots of cavalry both foot and mounted versions. I wish I had some nice terrain to show them off against but I don’t so you just get a pile of models on a gaming mat.

Eldar Harlequins

Posted on September 27, 2015 at 11:25 AM Comments comments (0)

These buggers have taken bloody ages to do! They’re quite nice models even though I’m more partial to the original sculpts from the 80’s. The Death Jester is probably my favourite sculpt (and paint job) from this lot with the Shadowseer being a bit of a damp squib of a model for me. Both of these are Finecast as opposed to the rest of the models which are metal. I think I mentioned a few minor issues with the Death Jester in a previous post but in comparison the Shadowseer h...

It’s been a little while since my last post but I’ve been busy as ever. I’ve been working through more Tsuba Miniatures Russo-Japanese War stuff. This time dismounted Japanese cavalry. I’m just waiting for some more grass tufts to arrive so I can finish off their bases.


I’ve also started a set of GW Eldar Harlequins. Thankfully these are mostly...

Hasslefree de ja vu

Posted on August 17, 2015 at 5:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Just a quick one today as time is limited. I’ve been painting more Hasslefree stuff again. Most of these I’ve already painted at some point in the past so I’ve tried to vary the colour schemes slightly where possible whilst also sticking roughly to what I’d done on those previous attempts (at the request of the client). As ever, these things always paint up nicely. These are yet again resin masters and if nothing else that means they are at least quick to prep. Anyway,...

Infinity Nomads

Well, it’s been a little while since my last post but better late than never I guess. I’ve been busy finishing off Infinity stuff as part of the same commission as the large battle suit I showed last time. Facebookers will have likely seen a few pics of these models already. It’s taken a while to get them done purely down to my misjudging the amount of work that was needed to complete that large battle suit. You can see in this picture just how big that bugger is.

Infinity battlesuit

Posted on July 18, 2015 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

It’s that time again! After doing the RBG stuff I got to paint a few models that weren’t quite so taxing. I can’t show them yet but they were fun to do and a much needed change. After those though I ploughed straight on into another batch of Infinity Nomads, so no rest for the wicked, or some such bollocks (when I first typed that line I managed to put ‘suck’ instead of ‘such’. H and K aren’t next to one another on the keyboard. Very Freudian!)....
