Warhammer 40.000 – Rogue Trader – Goffik Rocker (Games Workshop)

First finished miniature of 2022 is an oldie, but a goodie: The only Goffik Rocker Ork I have left from back when I played Warhammer 40.000: Rogue Trader. The reason I decided to paint him up was not to expand my Bad Moon Warband, but because I needed a Half-Orc Bard for an Xmas 2021 […]

Orc then and now – Comparing my paint skills now and in 1987

In 1987 I started playing roleplaying games  and my brother and I also started painting miniatures around that time (being 13-14 and 9-10). you can see minis we painted here, but one Orc mini, I decided to paint only half of. The idea was to paint the other half when I got better. I forgot […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Magus (Games Workshop)

When I first saw this Genestealer Magus, I thought she would be a fantastic character for Dungeons & Dragons. But between me buying the miniature and painting her, I learned about Grim Dark and I decided to paint her Grim Dark style. While the result is not perfect, I really do like the look of […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Iron Golem Crawlers (Skorpekh Destroyers by Games Workshop)

I first started seeing miniatures painted in the Grim Dark fashion last year and via the help of the Internet, I found a tutorial on how to use Enamel washes, something completely new to me and something that got me really excited. I’ve been painting miniatures since 1987 so this was a fresh new technique […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Temple Flameguards (Privateer Press)

in our campaign Daisygate, we have the local cityguard called “The Daisy Guard“, who the party has run into several times. They are trained, but polite city guards maintaining the order of the town. They serve the town. However, I also needed a unit of Royal Guardians who are tasked with protecting the royals. These […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Undead Giant Cyclops (Fantasy Lords – Grenadier Models)

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 […]

Warhammer 40.000 – Rogue Trader – Hrothyogg – Ogre Captain (Games Workshop)

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 […]

Warhammer 40.000 – Rogue Trader – Ogryn (Games Workshop)

Back when I played Warhammer 40.000 Rogue Trader in the 90s, I played Bad Moon Ork but always wanted an Ogryn mob. However, I could never find the miniatures in the local shops in Denmark (there were very few). I just bought this one, sc ulpted by Bob Olley, on ebay and it’s been super […]

Vor The Maelstrom – Bluefang Growler Chieftain

Back when I moved to London (summer of 1999) I was a Warhammer 40k player, but moving to London I learned about a bunch of other super interesting scifi tabletop wargames and ended up ditching WH40K (never took to 3rd edition, I prefered the more skirmish nature of 2nd and Rouge Trader). Anyway, having been […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Mad Caps (Privateer Press)

I won’t lie: I’ve been wanting to paint these crazy little dudes since I saw them the first time. But since I no longer play Warmachine, I didn’t have a reason to buy them. However, having picked up Dungeons & Dragons, they seemed like a perfect type of crazy fit into the Feywild which is […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Gatormen Posse (Privateer Press)

Given I made a Dungeons & Dragons adventure that was crocodile themed for our current campaign, I decided that Lizardmen in my world, Heden Rei, would be Gatormen instead. Some minor tweaks to stats but otherwise identical. These Gatormen minis was speed painted as I needed them done fast in time for the adventure.

Dungeons & Dragons – Swamp Horror (Privateer Press)

I think Privateer Press makes some fantastic miniatures, and some of them, like this Swamp Horror, is great inspiration for a Dungeons & Dragons adventure. My players haven’t faced this one yet in our current campaign… but they will! Base is using “Scenic Water” from Woodland Scenics and “Valhallan Blizzard” from Games Workshop.
