Undead Captain, Hordes Of 'Em....

Our story begins with...
The valiant town guard

I have more of them on the way, just as soon as I get around to cutting of their pikes and then sculpting them some halberts.

And they are up against...

some spooky specters

Three shadowy wraiths

two fierce wights (who apparently frequent the same hair salon as the bride of Frankenstein 😛)

and a whole passel of ghouls and ghasts

For those of you wondering.
The guards are from Ral Partha's Blighthaven/Demonworld line.
All the undead are from Splintered Light, exept for one ghoul who is from Alternative Armies.

Well, thats it for this episode.

More Caves and Monsters

Ok, first post of the year.
What! Wait where did January go?
Oh well...   there goes that new years resolution...

Let's see what I've been up to then...

First of I've been bangin' away at some more cavern tiles for D&D

As you can see I'm starting to get enough pieces together so that I can build a decent battle scene

I'm thinking of making some water edge tiles to soften the transitions from land to water a bit and then some scatter terrain like stalacmites, mushroom clusters and crystal formations.

On to the miniature painting side then...

No D&D is complete without some Orcs

More orcs...

And a couple of adventurers to help stop said orcs

This next mini is from the last splintered light kickstarter, when I saw him I pledged immediately,
personally I think it is the coolest looking minotaur miniature you can find in 15mm.

Makes for a really butch end of session bad guy imo.

The next three figures are actually from the old 28mm Rackham line, I think they were supposed to be some kind of air elemental familiars or something.

They make great 15mm guardian spirits though,
the question is "Are they friend or foe?"

I've also based and primed a whole bunch of undead so with a bit of luck I should have more pics to share with you soon.


Ps: sorry for the quality of some of the pictures, I have just swapped out all my old lamp bulbs for LED's and I'm struggling a little to find the right camera settings to compensate.

Lets Do The Mash, Lets Do The Monster Mash!

Ok folks, last post of the year before the holiday madness begins.
Best make it a good'un then 😎 ,


..."Out of the mists of Tír na nÓg strides Slaine MacRoth with his axe 'Brainbiter' in hand and his dwarf Ukko by his side."

Sláine: "Announce me, dwarf."

Ukko: "Er... Sláine Mac Roth... a bone-splitter, a reddener of swords, a pruner of limbs who delights in red-frothed, glorious carnage. No welcome visitor. Not a friendly face. Your lives would be prolonged for getting out of his way. Excellent with the axe and sword he is. Far from trifling the wounds he gives with his ungentle, woe-working weapons. Well damaged his enemies. Their tribes are full of vacancies. But I expect you know that yourselves now!"

Being slightly underwhelmed by the size of the Splintered light not-Slaine I decided to take matters into my own hands and convert a Ral Partha Thain barbarian into a more decently sized 15(18)mm Slaine.

I cut away his puny knife and green stuffed him a propper axe...

...and then gave him a fur cape.

And because you can't have a hero without some monsters for him to fight I also painted...

a cave bear from Northstar,

I am the carrion maker!

a Green Hag from Ral Partha

I can't waste time talking to you... I'll stop that mouth with steel!

some Owlbears from Splintered light

Kiss my axe!

some Splintered light Perytons

Flies will enter these wounds!

a bunch of goblins , the mounted ones are from Ral Partha, the one on foot is from Splintered light.

I am the reddener of armour! My axe shall leave a wake of death!  

two Splintered light chimeras

It's time I got more gore on my war weapon!

A pair (foursome?) of ettins from Splintered light.

Ha! Double the number of heads for me to pickle and show of to my friends!

A big purple people eater from Ral Partha

I am the CORPSE-SCORER!The axe river will flow — and you will drown in the wound sea!

And finally a lava demon also from Ral Partha.

I an Slaine MacRoth, my blood is white hot!

All in all I painted nearly a score of figures...
...and I did not think it to many 😈

Cheers and happy holidays every body!!!
