I don’t know the story behind “The Hand” in Kingdom Death: Monster as we have never been that far (we actually will meet him next time after today’s game!). But I wanted him to look different from the Kingsman and tried to give him a bit more of a worn look. Overall I’m happy with him, but I don’t think he is as well done as the Death High: Miko, but he is good enough for the game table. The one thing I would point out is that I painted his brain with a gloss nail polish to make it…

I don’t often paint miniatures that I don’t need to play an associated game, but the pandemic lockdown has given me more time on my hands and it gave me the chance to paint on of Kingdom Death’s cool pinups: The Death High Miko. I decided to paint her skin dark. This is not something I am familiar with, so I thought it would be a fun little challenge. In fact, last time I painted somebody dark skinned was one of the ladies that comes with the Lion Knight. It’s actually made me start a whole production line of dark-skinned…

Eventhough the Kingdom Death: Monster pinups are great, I don’t paint a lot iof them since I tend to paint what I need to play and they don’t feature in the game.a Nevertheless, I thought it could be fun to paint a male pinup so I bought this fantastic Preacher mini and it has been great fun to paint him. I’m especially happy with the jeans. I’m kinda happy with the white shirt as well. Tried to make it look dirty with Nuln Oil and highlighted it with white, but it became to white, so gave it more Nuln Oil….

I think I painted about the same amount of miniatures in 2019 as I did in 2018. Rediscovering D&D after 20 year break has really revived my painting hobby. While I have been playing tabletop wargames (stopped around 2010), you tend to stick painting your army from the company that owns the game. With Dungeons & Dragons there are so many options, so much nuance and so many manufactures. http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-mob-of-dwarven-undead-multiple-manufacturers/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-blue-dragon-citadel-by-tom-meier-1984/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-ancient-green-dragon-angrislaug-draiggoch-of-eryri-mierce-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-dwarf-and-goblin-skeletons-macrocosm-games/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-the-medusa-and-gorgon-with-bow-darksword-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-ghost-reaper-bones/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-female-shadow-dragonkin-sorcerer-dark-sword-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-tiny-fairyfolk-darksword-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-razordon-as-kobold-heavy-artillery-games-workshop/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-empire-of-dust-skeleton-regiment-mantic-games-and-2-sokar-skeletons-reaper-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-enslaved-guardians-mantic-games/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-avatar-of-sekhmet-reaper-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-efreet-mantic-games/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-arabic-warrior-on-flying-carpet-brother-vinnis-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-wolves-darksword-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-the-beholder-nolzurs-marvelous-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/vor-the-maelstrom-bluefang-growler-chieftain/ http://scrollmaster.net/kingdom-death-monster-more-starting-survivors/ http://scrollmaster.net/kingdom-death-monster-female-chef-pinup/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-undead-kitty-cats-of-doom-darksword-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-mummy-queen-netikerti-nefsokar-mage-reaper-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-djinn-couple-male-from-zealot-miniatures-and-female-from-brother-vinni/ http://scrollmaster.net/mice-and-mystics-core-set-painted/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-tiefling-rogue-darksword-miniatures/   http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-young-emerald-dragon-strongholds-followers-matt-colville/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-kobolds-batch-2-otherworld-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/kingdom-death-monster-the-flower-knight/ http://scrollmaster.net/kingdom-death-monster-survivor-in-complete-hide-armour-and-wielding-a-scrap-sword/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-orc-hill-billies/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-the-witch-king-rage-craft-miniatures/…

We decided to invite some friends over to try Kingdom Death: Monster and it so happened we would be 5 players so very (VERY) last minute, I glued two extra survivors together and speed painted them. They are nowhere near as cool as the original prologue survivor in neither paintjob nor miniature sculpt, but they did the trick! First game ever with more people and we were haunted by snake eyes!

I don’t paint a lot of miniatures I don’t need for playing. And frankly, painting any of the KDM pinups is a daunting task because A) they are so well made and B) those who tend to paint them are pro or semi-pro painters… in fact I’ve only painted one before. I also struggle with painting female faces and those 3 things combined, made me repaint this face something like 5-6 times so she ended up being all wrong and cakey in her face. Still ok happy with her.

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!
