Weekend Update CW 26/2020

Earlier this week, Warlord Games announced Sea Monsters for Black Seas. Which is quite cool, as I was already looking for a white whale miniature. And I managed to clean up all of the schooners. Lot of pewter ... unfortunately rather soft pewter.

A miniature Odyssey – Bonus round

All right, I' ll admit it - this is the first time I' m looking forward to a project under time pressure. It's probably because I like the subject so much. I can literally see an army of the dead rising before me.

But even an army of the dead needs something to give it character - in the case of Mortal Gods Mythic, it is the fallen hero who is the counterpart to a Promachos.

Weekend Update CW 25/2020

Earlier this week, the first part of my Lake Town kitbash went online. We started with the main building, next up the stairs and pathways, and I'm already on that, as you can see.

A miniature Odyssey – Priest of Hades

The preparations for my Summer Project for Mortal Gods are in full swing and I hope to finish my bonus round before the first of July, if possible. I have already taken the first step on this path - the first priest of Hades is ready and I might add another one over the course of time.

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 6

"But Dino, you haven't even finished your other warband" I can hear you say and yes, of course you are right, but with the second warband I am able to meet a few more goals.

On the one hand I got these two ladies from Nick Eyre of Northstar Military Figures, under the premise to paint them and leave the pictures to him. I am happy about that, because the female wizards' box is really snazzy and it was no problem to create a witch and her pupil from it.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part II

Having the miniature is the first step, we can put a check on that - Hooves and Fur Part 1! Next on is to go for a paint theme. Usually I'd go on Instagram for that or maybe the according social media groups to look for inspirations, but as we're talking about a retro / oldhammer project, a good ressource are old White Dwarfs or army books.

For that reason I took the army books from multiple editions, 4th Warhammer Armies: Chaos, 5th Realm of Chaos, 6th Beasts of Chaos and 7th Beastmen book out from the archive and went browsing.

A miniature Odyssey – Harryhausen’s best

Aaaah, skeletons, a real classic! I think everyone of us has encountered these stereotypical villains in some way or another, be it in computer games, movies, or during a very old-fashioned walk through the haunted house at the fair. In my case, the image has been formed by the classic Jason and the Argonauts movie, of which you can still easily find film scenes on YouTube.

The Hobbit – Lake Town Kitbash Part 1

Keith Robertson did a great kit bash of the Lake Town kit, that was shown a few years back on Warhammer Community.

He combined two of the The Hobbit - Lake Town kits and converted them into something, that was heavily inspired by Bard's house. I really like what he has done and would like to recreate it. Unfortunately, the only pictures we have to do so, are these, giving a proper idea but especially the converted parts as the part below the upper walkways and modified wall section is only partly seen. So let us try to reverse engineer this.

Weekend Update CW 24/2020 – Mordheim, Paints and Blood Bowl

I am honest, I was a bit nervous about the arrival of this one, Luthor / Luther Wulfenbaum, as international shipping is still stressed at the moment, but the italian post office delivered and quite quick.

Mordheim – Luthor Wulfenbaum

Late last year, the Mordheim Facebook group surpassed the 10,000th member (and now has reached beyond 13k members) and for that occasion they planned something special.

"They" is a bit unspecific at that point, as Tuomas Pirinen, the author of the Mordheim rule set, took upon to coordinate this idea. And after a huge brainstorming, they decided to go with a special miniature, incl. rules and artwork.

With Artwork by John Wigley (who did part of the original Mordheim Artwork) and miniature design by Owen Matthew Aurelio, the project started, supported by Heresy Lab.
