Ghoulish Appetites

Ghoulish Appetites

A while back I bought the Ghoul tribe from Heresy Miniatures, originally intended for a Ghoul Kings army in Warhammer Fantasy Battles. 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.

Slaves of the Hive

Slaves of the Hive

I’ve completed another little side project in the shape of three Zoats.

Anything that makes Necrons harder to put down and more likely to get back up is a must have … Continue reading

Lord of Light

The second Necron Lord is finished, leading a unit of Warriors into battle. This time the character model is a resin cast while the rank and file are once again metal. The Warriors’ guns are from the time before the green plastic gauss rods and were painted with a sort of crackling green energy effect. That … Continue reading
