The Ratchets are the core troops of the Brood and as such they are painted in the basis colourscheme with no frills. Orignally the whole idea of numbering the Brood troops came from the Ratchets since I needed a way to keep tracke of their wounds. However after demoing Dark Age with them at Salute […]
The Grist has more clothing than most Brood in a big cloak like thingy. I painted this in vague red/brown stripes to make it standout but still look old and well used.
The shield and the odd organic looking axe is the two main features of Murtros and I painted them like bone so they look like they are made from organic material as all Brood weapons are. Imagine a specially bred type of turtle which would have had a shiled like that on its back.
Note these are the original slaves minis which did not have separated arms and weapons. Strike a pose! Looking at the large bunch of spear slaves in front of me I realise there’s only two poses! “Oh no“, I thought, “not another pointing unit“. Some units work with the same pose on all miniatures. For […]
Dragyri Decision I have been wanting to paint a Dragyri force for some time. However as you might have learned from reading other pages on this site, I hate wasting time! I am a do-not-paint-what-you-cannot-see kinda of gamer, so I have held back on the Dragyri untill I figured out which Dragyri caste to choose. […]
Having finally managed to complete Grakkha, painting Kamahru’s Incarnate was significantly easier. But it did take longer than I anticipated as I expected it to be a quick drybrush job and I guess to a certain extend it was. I painted it dark brown and drybrushed it with a lighter leather brown. So far so […]
Kamahru’s Champion and Kamahru’s Incarnate I started painting Grakkha as my first Confrontation miniature. However, his skin is very difficult with all the bumps and lumps so I put him on the backburner and decided to paint the simpler Kolghor instead. That was almost a year ago and the unfinished Grakkha has been staring me […]
I started painting Grakkha as my first Confrontation miniature. However, his skin is very difficult with all the bumps and lumps so I put him on the backburner and decided to paint Kolghor instead. This is the first time in many years I have spent so long on a miniature and I am really happy […]
My wife kindly let me use her hobby photo studio. The Asadars are the first elves to be completed following my quick-to-paint plan and it was fast and I am happy with the result. The only thing was I found them too monochrome so I re-painted the swords from being light blueish grey as the […]
What is VOR The Maelstrom? Shortly after releasing VOR, FASA went belly up leaving VOR in limbo from which it has never returned. However there is still a strong VOR community gathering at The Warp and the minis can be bought from Iron Wind Metals, including minis never released while the game was official alive. A Description of […]
Lost to Darkness Two Rulebooks, both alike in dignity in the Realm of Chaos… Before I begin I would like to point out that this is no ordinary campaign, this is a campaign for the advanced (and slightly mad) gamer. Last year (2004) I ran a nostalgic Warhammer 40.000 Rouge Trader campaign called The Facility on […]
