185 Captain of the Guard - Forge of Ice Miniatures





After a bit of a wait for the fulfilment of this KS campaign I was delighted to see these miniatures arrive at Schloss Fish. I managed to make the time to get the Captain of the Guard miniature finished over the holidays and am very pleased with the result. The miniature is well cast and very well sculpted. Hope to finish up the rest of the guard at some stage soon but might try to get one more thing finished before this painting Club is completed...

Gonna slide in right here towards the finish line with a miniature.

188 - Reaper Bones Dwarf Forge Priestess


First mini painted after a ~2 years hiatus. With the current events its been a hassle trying to scrounge up all the necessary supplies, but I'm pretty happy I managed to finish her in time.
(For example, my anti shine sealer hasnt arrived yet, and apparantly my black is pretty glossy  ::) )

After three or four years of fearing opening the blister...I finally opened my birthday gift and painted "half" of it.

He comes with a mounted version of the same miniature - I don't have a huge need for that, but at some point I'll paint it.  Stunning to think $13 USD used to get you a hero model and his mounted counterpart.  Oh how times have changed.  lol

I was just thinking this the other day. The new Warcry Skink set should be around £30, based on the other sets. There are six figures in it and I thought "£5 a figure, that's not too bad" - and then I realised what I'd just thought o_o

I miss the old days of three metal figures for £1.50 :'(

Indeed. In fact I saw on ebay, Troll Trader was selling a complete blister of orc bloodbowl team. Teams in a blister instead of oversized packaging. Made me remember getting my whole halfling team for next to nothing.

190: Desert Tiger, from Conquest Games

  So modern it's probably not even on their site yet! Reminds me of the old Citadel Chaos Hound with scorpion tail, but feline and a fair bit bigger.

Yeah, that's superb - I wish I could paint animals but I end up throwing most of mine out.

That’s a strange critter. Beautiful painting though.

It’s been a long haul, but we seem to be accelerating towards the finish line :)
