This Cyclops was a Christmas present from my wife alongside this Ettin from the same company. But I only just got a chance to finish it in time for a game with my niece and nephew. I think the Ettin was more fun to paint and the result was better, but I am still happy […]
All my giant miniatures have been gifts from my lovely wife. I last Christmas she got me two more: An Ettin and a Cyclops from Meeplevault. The Cyclops need to be assembled but the Ettin came as a single piece and what a piece indeed! First of all, the print quality is amazing. Second, the […]
My wife got me this mini several years ago, but between then and me painting him, she also got me the Frost Giant from Nolzur’s so that one kinda became our D&D Frost Giant. But recently I needed both a Frost Giant and a Frost Giant Ghost so I last miniute speedpainted Frorigh and I […]
What an incredible miniature! I got this as a Christmas present from my wife back in 2019, but it has taken me up until now to get to it. I have never painted such a big miniature, so I used some methods normally associated painting grimdark especially for the armour and I am really happy […]
This Frost Giant was the second giant following the Storm Giant. While not as epic and mighty as the Storm Giant, this Frost Giant certainly still oozes of power of brute strength. For that reason, I decided to paint him much more grounded than the Stone Giant, by making his weapons worn and littered with […]
It was actually some pig folk that caught my eye from the The Three Pigs & Other Denizens of Dünnmere by Monkstone Miniatures, but when i looked through the minis available, I fell in love with this Ogre Witch. She\s been super fun to paint. Unfortunately, I had to repaint her skirt three times as […]
While I feel I have a good technique for painting dragons, I struggled with giants. in fact, I have a complete set of giants my wife has bought me that I am scared to make a start on… or at least I was because I have started now with this female Stone Giant. I had […]
I am a big fan of the old Rogue Trader Orks. They have so much personality. But back when i played Warhammer 40k Rogue Trader, I didn’t have access to the fantastic Ogres and Ogryns from Citadel. So it has been a pleasure suddenly being able to paint not just this amazing Ogre by Jes […]
I saw this Troll mini by chance and I ordered it on the spot. What a fantastic powerful badass of a troll. However, I left it too late to paint him so ended up using contrast paint and a lot of drybrush and honestly, I am quite happy with the result.
So… it is rare I buy a miniature without purpose, but this ogre chieftain from Reaper Bones is just so badass I had to get him. He is literally a walking tank! I think him and this Orc Warlord would be a good tag team to make our party respect the greenskins again.
When I started up Dungeons & Dragons last year, I started with a team of people either completely new to RPGs or had some limited experience back in school. That, combined with the fact that I have to relearn a game I hadn’t played for over 20 years, meant I focussed on creatures both they […]
When I was planning my D&D Christmas oneshot for 2018, I was roaming the internet to find Christmas themed miniatures and found this crazy Ogre Santa from Scibor Miniatures. It arrived two days before the game, but with Dragonmeet 2018 in between, I had little time to paint it, so I ended up speed painting […]
