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.

Frostgrave: A Sword and Sorcery Adventure – Part 5

DRAGOOON! Who hasn't heard that in a fantasy setting before! Dragons belong to the classic fantasy genre like fries to ketchup and coincidentally my daughter has a toy that is just that: a dragon.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur

For the Realm of Chaos I sorted the miniatures into god-specific warbands. One for each of the four dark gods, covering the chaos champions with the according mark of chaos. But what about the undivided chaos? I thought the Beastmen would be a perfect fit.

A miniature Odyssey – Peltastic start

While I was removing moldlines and assembling the first minis, I had the idea to give each troop of my Mortal Gods army a certain theme. Well, that's not that easy, since there were no real uniforms in ancient Greece - everyone brought what they had with them to the battle. But since I'm more the "Rule of Cool" type, I decided to give the first squad of Peltasts a Thracian character, i.e. shields with rather rural looking patterns like cowhides and helmets in Phrygian style.

Unfortunately I noticed after the first model that I only had one Phrygian helmet in the cast and eventually turned them into a few common mercenaries. Although there was no real uniform in ancient times, I will use green tones for the rest of the troop and keep the helmets in silver.

Weekend Update CW 23/2020

From one short week to the other, welcome to the weekend update.

Earlier this week, I got the info that Heresy Lab did ship out the special Mordheim miniature of Luthor Wulfenbaum. This miniature was produced for the occasion of 10.000 members in the Mordheim group, and everything was coordinated by Tuomas Pirinen.

Cruel Seas – Royal Airforce and Luftwaffe

While I'm currently reading the Close Quarters supplement for Cruel Seas, I return to the aircrafts that I have around for air support on the channel.

Revell Type VII C + Trumpeter Wildcats Trumpeter - Cruel Seas Flyers Trumpeter - Cruel Seas Flyers

Quite a while back I bought a few of the larger Trumpeter packs, as I thought an air combat game in topgun style would be fun, maybe to defend an aircraft carrier. From that idea I still have the F4F-4 Wildcat here, the other kits (Douglas TBD and SBD) I traded with the Sweetwater travelling box, as only the Grumman were used by the British under the designation Martlet / Wildcat Mk. IV. As it would be unfair to just give the Royal Navy some support from above, I got something for the Kriegsmarine as well.

A miniature Odyssey – Of Mortal Gods and inspiration

At the beginning of March, the starter box of Mortal Gods found its way to me, which was exactly my thing, as I have a little bit of a thing going for Greek mythology. That' s why now is a good opportunity to make a longer running project out of it, to paint everything up and put some heart into it.

A miniature Odyssey – Of Mortal Gods and inspiration

For projects of this kind I have a few preferences. I like it when I have everything I need to play in one box. Meaning there are two factions in the box, an easy to learn set of rules, game equipment like dice and the likes, terrain and a game field.
