Just An Other Boring Chest, Nothing to See Here...

Got some more sculpting done, finished the little chest and made a bigger one.

Treasure chests! Quick, check for traps...
And then just couldn't resist trying my hand at sculpting one of these...

Oh no! Too late...

This little Mimic was really fun to do. I think ,as I start doing other furniture, more of them may end up  sneaking in 😎 ( isn't he adorable? )

I also painted these skeletal knights from Ral Partha's 1879 18mm VSF line.
Sadly my flash seems to have washed out the colors and depth a bit but you can still get an idea of what they look like.
I like their slightly more exotic look, makes them look like they are from some long lost civilisation imo.

Real life has been keeping me busy so that's all for now.

A Crate Full of Goblins?!?

I want to start expanding my dungeon scatter terrain so I decided to try my hand at crafting/ sculpting some crates and chests.
The big crates are just wooden blocks which I scored with a pin and then painted.
The smaller crate was a bit of an experiment, I tried to sculpt the sides seperately and then
assemble them once the had cured.
This turned out to be much to fiddely so the treasure chest got sculpted the traditional way, in one piece over a little armature.

As for painting miniatures , I finished the Goblin Rabble pack from Ral Partha's demonworld/ Blighthaven range.
Lovely figures to paint with lots of character, to bad these haven't made it to their singles collection yet as I'd love to get my hands on some more of the different poses.

I'm going to have to rummage through my lead pile and see which figures strike my fancy .
Also, having done the little treasure chest, I think I might try sculpting a mimic version of it to.

More Rangers of Shadow Deep With a Dash of D&D...

Its been a bit of a miscellaneous bunch of figures this week.

Two skellie archers to get them up to strength, a restless spirit, a champion of evil, a yuan-ti archer and I found the last of my survivors and gave him a quick paintjob to.

I also made some terrain: the pillars in the background

The skellies, knight and survivor are from Ral Partha and the spirit and snake woman are from Alternative Armies.

A couple of scenarios have a vulture as a kind of eye in the sky spy for the evil overlord.
I thought I'd try something a little different and sculpted this guy instead.
It's a D&D monster thats basically a giant eyeball with wings,big claws and a rat tail with a stinger that cries piosonous tears called an eyewing, 

Here he is "nekkid"

And with a little paint on him..

I've started experimenting on sculpting some crates and treasure chests and  have a group of demonworld goblins primed and ready for paint.

Also the tile these photo's were taken on is part of an old dungeon tile project which I'm looking to revive soon so, if you like what you see, stay tune for more.


New Splintered Light Miniatures Kickstarter

Just thought I'd give you all a head's up.
There's a new kickstarter from Splintered Light for a whole passel of new beastmen from Ben Siens.

Goatmen,lionmen,bearmen,tree creatures and a truely kickass Minotaur.
Some nice attainable stretch goals and a large tree creature/treant earlybird extra.
There's also deals for existing Ben Siens sculpts(orcs,goblins,dark elves...) and you can get them at a discount as add ons to your pledge.
just backed this myself, both for the new ones and to get my mits on some of the older stuff.
