So here is something unrelated, but a little neat: I found the pieces from the lord of the rings trivial pursuit game, and they are actually pretty nice?



Like, not amazing, but solid quality. And just solid. The rest of the game is long gone, but I kind of like these guys! they're attached to the plastic part, but it shouldn't take much to remove that. Might be nice for frostgrave or something similar.

In the meantime, who wants a gryph hound? Answer, everyone



Here they are pictured with their king, the silver tower gryph hound, the best one.

Ok to be honest i am in the process of repainting most of them. Too many blue, needs more rainbow.

And more gryph hounds

Those LOTR figures are surprisingly nice!

I was thinking about getting some of those spidergrots to go with my other spider themed bad guys, but the robes on the minis sort of put me off. Will be interested to see how you paint 'em.

I've been struggling with that, actually! i've been trying several different color schemes and none of them seem quite right. i do like the little guys, but i like smaller figures in general. Hopefully I will be ready to put up a few samples next time.

But for now have a ghost with a pokin' spear. i believe that is the official name.



And if not it still is to me

... Dang it, i need to fix that spear, don't I?

Guess what! you should always check the bargain bin or basket or shelf or whatever, if you know of one. Why?

Because this!



I now have two, two tiny gryph hounds. My dream is coming true.

Also the warpriest is neat. I like him. Might do a head swap at the least though.

That dwarven group shot looks really good. Guy on the right looks a bit like a doorknocker - excuse me sir, I need to axe you a few questions about our lord and saviour Moradin...

The LOTR figures are pretty incredible. At first thought I they were the old metal Citadel ones from when the movies first came out.

Congrats on your play! I do a bit of theatre as well, and it always seems to turn into a massive black hole for all of my free time - so I'm impressed that you're managing to get anything done at all!

Look forward to see where you take the Dwarfcelsior priest - sometimes we need a challenge to make us rise to that next level

Thanks! i hope to get him done soon, it's turned into a frustrating project. Partly my choice of colors is at fault.

The play definitely overwhelmed me, it was worth it but man was i glad for a break. Of course now we're gearing up for the next one...

That is very kind of you, thanks! sadly, that guy, who was a lot of fun to make... has gone missing. I've moved since making that one, and i worry that he was a casualty.

Well, here's something different. A ways back i had an idea of making some stormcast inspired orcs. The idea being that orcs saw the stormcast going around the realms generally prodding buttock, and they said, "hey that's pretty good, we should steal their stuff!" only they would have said it more orky. of course you might ask "how can they even steal stormcast equipment?" but the orcs don't ask that, they just do it.

I've worked on a few orcs (orruks? greenskins?) on and off, here's one that is still a work in progress.

Here is a guy i have been working on and off on... and off. I don't think i put any in progress pictures here before? Anyhow it is a khorgorath but i gave him a new head, as is my wont.



I wasn't sure when i made it but the switch has grown on me.

That’s a great conversion turtles. I had to google the original model - and I like your version much better!

It's a little hard to see the paintjob on the excelsior, but what I can make out still looks pretty good. Sometimes if I am considering stripping a model, I'll give the whole thing a good wash of Agrax Earthshade just before I do. That can either help to bring the whole thing together, or make it easier to see what works and what might need to change. Might work for your tall dwarf!

Wow, that Ogre head fits the Khorgorath really well, and is also a headswap that I haven't seen before! I'd probably try to remove those bone worms and greenstuff the holes though.

Wow, that is a thing! The relatively non threatening head with the body makes for an evocative conversion. Ink Wash (or maybe more ink wash- not sure from the picture) should really make it easy to get a good look on most of the model.

I might give this a try. he's still sitting on the sidelines, but there's got to be a way to fix him.

Yeah, i wasn't even sure what those things were when i painted them. They do look better removed, like on yours.

I haven't used any ink wash yet, but i will now. I have a tendency to be nervous about the stuff.

Meanwhile! I thought i had only got brushes for christmas, but today i got a late gift from my brother in law in the mail and...

yeesh. i got some work ahead of me i guess? but i like the fish.

Hooray for Christmas!

Those minis are badass, can't believe I've never seen them before. Had to go check out the rest of the range - and they have their very own amazing turtle!

Excited to see some paint on them 8-)

Yeah! I'm really liking them so far, and that turtle... sadly that turlte is beyond my reach for now but some day, some day...

i am testing out some paint scheme ideas right now, but it's not quite working out... what i want is to use shades of purple for the clothing, make a rose gold for the armour, turqoise skin, and white for some details. here's the test:



Not purple enough.

In other news! it seems to be the time of year for new years goals, so i'm making a couple right here

1: Finish up that dang dwarfcelsior.
2: Otherwise concentrate on one project through to completion, in this case: Fish elves!

Those are my goals.
