Lair of the Necromancer

Lair of the Necromancer

I completed the small coven of necromancer and zombies from the Fantasy and History Kickstarter for Frostgrave (or whichever other fantasy skirmish game the future holds for me). Thanks to Bad Squiddo Games for promoting this campaign which otherwise would have passed by me. My favourite figure of the lot is this half skeletal zombie with a raven on his … Continue reading

The Newly Deceased

The Newly Deceased

I supported a small Kickstarter project by a German rookie sculptor a few months ago and pledged for the Undead faction (surprise!) consisting of three zombies, a necromancer, a vampire and a headless horseman. This was the first release under the Fantasy and History label, which I hope will make it off the ground as a new manufacturer … Continue reading

Soldiers of Fortune

Soldiers of Fortune

I bought into Infinity last year, ordering the USAriadna and Operation Icestorm starter sets through Corvus Belli’s GenCon special offer. With Operation Red Veil now en route as well (and the Onyx Contact Force already on the shelf too), it’s time to get some troops painted for the battlefield.

The figures were sculpted by Paul Muller, who also created the last edition of metal Ghouls released by Citadel which I am using for my Vampire Counts. I am just studying S. Petersen’s Field Guide to Lovecraftian … Continue reading

Slaves of the Hive

Slaves of the Hive

I’ve completed another little side project in the shape of three Zoats. I vaguely envisage them being used in Rogue Trader style skirmishes against my Catachans and for Advanced Space Crusade, but more than anything I just felt like painting them. Being a genetically modified slave race of the Tyranids with rebellious tendencies, they provide a lot of … Continue reading

Visitors from Y’ha-nthlei

Visitors from Y’ha-nthlei

I played Call of Cthulhu for several years, but other than a figure representing my player character (a private investigator carrying a revolver) I never painted any creatures from the Cthulhu mythos. However, the temptation to collect a range of Lovecraftian monsters in miniature form has been gnawing away at my sanity ever since. The first H. P. Lovecraft … Continue reading
