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.…

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!

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…
