drinking tea in the snow

Hello! So i decided to start one of these for my fantasy related projects, because trying to put things up on these actually makes me get things done! I've got a bunch of random and unrelated fantasy figures from various things, but i'm going to start with the figures from Shadow over Hammerhal, for a variety of reasons. My sisters and I used to play hero quest a lot as kids, and we're hoping to use this as a way to recreate some memories and to help pass it on to the next generation, ie my nephews. Family game fun is the best fun. The painting is up to me.

Now, i'm not a good painter. I know this, but i'm improving by little bits. and i hope that will show.

Anyhow, what i'm working on right now is this gryph hound!



Gryph hounds are my favorite thing by far to come out of AoS. If i ever get another one of the little tiny ones from silver tower i'm going to put it on the base next to this guy as his tiny friend.

Pictures always show mistakes i miss, and i can already see quite a few things to fix on this one, but there it is.

Next: The Muscle Men of Chaos

I finished my box of Gryphounds a couple weeks ago and I loved them. Hope you do too. I quite like the green body and deep red for the beak and nails. Looking forward to more.

Looks good! Looking forward to more. The space marine player in me would like to see some stormcasts come out of this blog. Something we can expect in the future?

Thanks! i love the gryph hounds, yeah. they have a great design and they're just fun to paint.

Oh, they will definitely be some stormcast coming! i've got a few close to done actually, and of course there's the lord castellant from the warhammer quest game!


Meanwhile, a chaos friend:



I'm kind of pleases with how his skin turned out. I feel like i'm making some good progress in that area, though of course i still have a ways to go. his loincloth deal needs another wash i think. Also, clearly the real reason people go over to chaos is for the gift of ABS. all these guys have no shirts, amazing abs. Order people are fully clothed, to hide their shameful lack of sixpacks.

Next: A hero?

So... a sorceror!

I somehow have three chaos sorcerers, and i hate the idea of them all looking the same, plus the default head is as goofy as can be. So i did some basic kitbashing for this one



Nothing fancy, a new head and some snake arms. i'm pretty happy with him like this.

Good stuff all around. Those skeletons bring back memories for me painting with my step-daughter 7 years ago when she was...uh...7... She's weird and likes undead things and picked these as one of her first models.

Thanks! I like these guys quite a bit. they're chunky and not exactly "good" but they were just plain fun to paint.

Thank you! i'm glad that there's signs i'm getting better, it's sometimes hard for me to tell.

Meanwhile: some things from a different game, mice and mystics

Here is a quick and dirty kitbash, a lizardcast stormternal. or just a lizardman with a crossbow!



The shoulders need work, though.

The surprise isn't surprising but it was surprising to me, anyhow i ended up splitting the soul box with a friend.



Also i have a new gryph hound. I am going to paint all of these, that is my goal. That is what i will be doing. I will not be stopped.

I really like the conversions you did with the bare heads. The color scheme is neat, too.

Thanks! belated thanks. Though the one head actually came with the kit! they are getting better at proving more options, i have to admit.

Sadly i have not had much time for hobby stuff, though for mainly good reasons: I am in a play! Which is fun.

But here is something I intend to work on when i am done: A few grot scuttlings.



Just a few.
