I must admit when I received the Kingdom Death: Monster box, I was a bit puzzled by why they had added The Golden Smoke Knight for two reasons: First of all I think The Watcher is such a cool and otherworldly miniature that it is perfect as the final boss, where ass the Golden Smoke Knight is more “human”. Secondly, at the time I wasn’t comfortable with painting gold! It has caused me problems for a long as I’ve been painting. However, between getting the KDM box and now, I have not only found a gold colour I don’t think…

Having restarted Kingdom Death: Monster again (see Screaming Antilope), we’ve reached The Butcher. What is interesting is one of our survivors picked up a Butcher Cleaver in a previous hunt phase… very fitting!… and to top it off, we got a second Butcher Cleaver for her, which made me make the actual miniature for that survivor. I most admit the Butcher miniature is probably my least favourite KDM miniature and no, I didn’t really enjoying painting him and it shows in the paint job, which isn’t that great, but it will have to do.

When we started playing Dungeons & Dragons beginning of last year, we put our then Kingdom Death: Monster campaign on hold around Lantern Year 10. However, recently we decided to bring out the game again (and start all over as nobody remembered where we left off) and it’s revived my interest in painting miniatures for the game, the first one being the Screaming Antilope that I never finished in the first place. It was painted quite fast, but I am happy with the skinless look of its creepy body. Note the ring on her finger. Yes, we got married!

I actually do have some of the Christmas pinups from Kingdom Death, but as I prefer to paint what I can play with, I haven’t gotten around to paint them yet. But one of them did come with a pretty unique and flamboyant item: The Xmaxe, and I thought it was a shame not to make use of it. Then I saw The Old Survivor and given it is 3 days to December at the time writing this, I decided to equip him with the Xmaxe. What a badass combo!

Playing through our first campaign, two survivors early on became partners and later intimate resulting in Patricialina, the young survivor. To reflect this in the game, we replaced two of the prologue survivors with the intimacy couple and now I got around to paint them too! In my mind, if two survivors reach the stage where they feel safe enough to become intimate, they would have reached a certain level of comfort and familiarity with the weird world they’ve found themselves in. To reflect this, I wanted to give them clothes that were a bit more bright and felt like…

We are at Lantern Year 6 in our first campaign, so getting these painted is long overdue… in fact, we are already using other survivor minis such as The Young Survivor and the Intimacy Couple. I love these prologue minis! I will post individual pics of them below in the order I like them, but they are all four super cool and so full of character. The eyes are actually so small I cannot see them with my eyes (says something about my age), so I took photos with my mobile as I painted them to check what they looked like….

Before getting the actual game, my plan was always to paint the White Lion and the 4 starting survivors before starting the game, but faith would have it we started the game pretty much straight away. In Lantern Year 3 of our first campaign, two of the starting survivors, Diana and Tyr, formed a Partnership, and in Lantern Year 4, they got intimate and had the healthy girl: Patricialina, who inherited her father’s love for big axes… in Lantern Year 6, she rebelled against her parents and became a bowman, but I digress. I really liked the old and the young survivor miniatures, so…

“No battle plan ever survives the first contact.” My plan was to paint the 4 survivors and at least the White Lion before starting to play… but that plan went out the window when I got the game as we juuust want to do a test run and lo and behold, we are now at year 5 having defeated both the White Lion, the Screaming Antelope, the Butcher, the Manhunter and have had our first offspring: A girl with an unhealthy addiction to big axes. More about her another time. However, I finally got around to start painting and I…

Not much to say about Percival other than she did not take a long time to paint so I feel I’ve kinda cheated as I am happy with the end result. I do like non-metallic metal painting style, but there is something to be said for the spread of which you can make armour look great using metallic paints. Can’t wait to get the game. Not really sure how Percival actually work with the game itself. The whole gang together

While I wasn’t too satisfied with the Manhunter result, I am actually very pleased with this Order Knight Pinup. I can feel I am starting to get the hang of uzing glazes for shades and highlights. Far from perfect, but I am starting to understand the logic. The one thing, which was new and that I really struggled with, was creating sheer stockings. Making that translucent feel was very difficult and the end result maybe makes the stockings look too see-through, but overall I’m pleased with the result. I really like the cape and it is the first time I’ve…
