I cannot call this a water filter, so maybe it is a simple storage unit.

In the end it's simply an egg container with some bits on. But I think it looks nice. Expecially with all the set.

I love the wizards tower, though the telescope looks a bit too much like a ray gun.

Or, alternately, the ray gun looks too much like a telescope.

And OMG I love that Johnny Five!

Here a new project in its early stage.
The aim is to make a Slaan Blood Bowl team on the cheap.
But at the moment I have not enough toys to make a full team (I have only have 6 of these toad like mini gormiti), so I decided to test the idea at the moment.

Here the first modified toad (a catcher), I have no idea of a theme a the moment, but this first one kinda looks like a japanese monster.
Maybe I should go with a yokai theme.

Another quick tutorial: easy columns. This tutorial can help you to make some cheap terrain, but unfortunately nothing very detailed.

In any DIY store you can find wooden caps used for repair imperfections on your forniture. You drimel out the gross part and glue a wood cap. These caps can be found in several sizes. You simply need to glue these caps together.

Here an example of the product.



And here some examples.

The cilindrical piece is also found in the same bricolage stores.














And with some drybrush...



As stated before, nothing spectacular, you can see the wood texture. But you can make a large amount of these colums in a very small amount of time and with even less money.

Fantastic idea, look spot on to me. Quick and cheap wins every time.

The idea of using wood repair bits for making pillars is a keeper- brilliant! With the dry brushing they need no texturing at all to look like rough rock. As has been mentioned several times earlier- lots of wonderful ideas in this blog- I'll be following with interest!

This idea has crossed my mind, but at that time I was unable to find these things in a proper caliber. Thank You for reminding me of them! Will start looking around again.

Another contest, this time the theme was the humble paperclip.
And again I'm not in the finalists.
Well, at least I can show you the project.

Some random stuff today.

An horse (kinder egg toy), a bulltaur (a small rhino body and bits) and a 3d printed adventurer from Heroforge.

Warhammer quest mage and Sigmar dude for scale.
I'm the only one I found the Stormcasters ugly? That expressionless face... I have to do something about that.

Sometimes you can find diamons in the trash, or near it.

Near the plastic recycling bin in my neighbourood someone leaved an entire set of kid toys in a bag. They were full of sand and webs, the main attaction was a Simba plastic castle with some missing parts but still in great shape.
The scale is actually pretty good for Warhammer and I found some people did amazing thing with this toy.

After a lot of soap the castle is now ready to see some battles, and you can assemble it in many different ways!
Unfortunately the plastic knights are on the big side... well, more statues.

A couple of random characters today.
An armored cobra toy I found, repurposed as a Bronze Serpent, and a kobold, actually made with a Lord of the Rings goblin with Warhammer bits. They turned out pretty good.

I'm glad to read that.

I think I finally got the appeal of Chaos.
It's very easy to recycle things. You can pick random parts from your bit box and make a mutant in no time. And even works with toys. Nurgle is the best, mostly because is the most monstruos army you can make. So if it looks like s**t is a plus.
Here a small band of horrors that can be used as a proxy Blood Bowl team if you really need one.

Hello guys, I'm still working on the paintjob of the big monster for my Nurgle Proxies, but I wanted to take a break from all that purple, so I finished an old project. A stormcaster conversion.

As many of you know, I don't like Age of Sigmar. It's too dark and serious. I liked a lot more the old warhammer, when the models and the world were sillier and funnier. And I hate the grimdark tone of the 40k, in particular the space marines.
I'm not the first one to jump on this train, but i think the Stormcasters are one of the ugliest things ever made by GW, only because that doll-like head. And space marine proportions.

Still, I got 3 of them for free, so let's see what I can do.

At the moment I converted only 2, one with a simple chaos warrior head swap, the other one with various Bretonnia bits. I have no idea about the last one, maybe an undead knight, or I simply paint him as a statue.

I just cant pass without signing under every of these words. Very true, IMHO. And of these three former stormcasts the one with a horned helmet (first) is, in my view, the best. They are chaos.
