I was looking through my bits box and found all sorts of things that could be decorations on graves and grave stones so I decided to make a bunch of graves using squares of cork and these bits painted as old brass. Really happy with these.
These were quick and fun to make. If you have spare miniatures you do not know what to do with, you can quick paint them into stone statues (aka medusa victims). But another quick way to get use out of such minis, is to make them into ghosts. Simply spray them white and give them […]
Very little good has come from Brexit, but one good thing is that it has opened my eyes for miniature manufactures outside the UK. One great example is Cadwallon Miniatures where I found this fantastic and characterful Nosferatu. As a paint job, this is unique to me as I decided to paint his armour in […]
Painting 3D printed minis is fairly new to me, but I think when they are not overdone with details, they can be really cool, like these two Vampires from dndfigurer.dk. They have so much goth classic character.
This idea came from a desire of A) add an unfamiliar monster that would really make the players look twice B) bring in my own D&D character to the future world the party found themselves in at the time. By chance I bought “Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft” which had the interesting “Brain in a […]
This Necromancer miniature is such a mad wizard! Instead of a vain wizard with top hat and fancy cape, this guy simply has no care for his appearance and knows that flesh is just clay for him to mold. Nothing more. Somehow it makes him look crazy, unpredictable and powerful! I tried the same technique […]
I love using Undead in Dungeons & Dragons (who doesn’t?), but I haven’t used Ghouls much, mainly because I only had two! So I looked for some more and found this lovely Ghoul Tribe on Heresy Miniatures. I decided to try and paint them using enamel paint, something I’ve only recently experimented with, but where […]
What an absolute nightmare of a miniature. I love it! It literally look like something that stepped out of a crazy necromancer’s head, or subconsciousness, and grew organically by its own will. I tried to use the enamel painting techniques that I have been experimenting with…. It turned out fine, but I think I could […]
Back in the 80s when I first started playing RPGs we really didn’t have access to a lot of miniatures, which meant when you found something unusual and cool, you grabbed it! That’s how I ended up with my first version of this fantastic Undead Cyclops from Grenadier Models 1988. That version has long since […]
My wife bought me this a while back. As I wasn’t sure what to use it for, I never got around to paint it as I tend to paint what i need for the game. However, I sat down and painted it and good thing I did as I suddenly needed it as a fallback […]
I spent quite a long time looking for Dwarven undead and was quite proud of the gang I had painstakingly collected, so when I found the Macrocosm box of dwarven skellies, it was with mixed feelings. However, I still think the gang I’ve collected is a pretty cool team and I painted their bases in […]
I’ve spent the last year and a half finding dwarven undead… I’ve found 5 minis so far and then I found the Ancient Grudges – Bonefields set from Macrocosm Games that has a ton of Dwarf and Goblin Skellies! Great variety and quality of these little cute minis. I painted them using this speed painting […]
