Shadespire: Ironskull’s Boyz

L to R: Bonekutta, Basha, Gurzag Ironskull, Hakka.

Continuing my brief painted-ages-ago-and-not-shared-because-of-bad-photography series, it’s Ironskull’s Boyz!!!

I love these sculpts, I think that bar a couple of minor issues that the paint job is decent and, best of all, these bruisers have seen quite a bit of table time in games of Warhammer: Underworlds (AKA Shadespire) in the eighteen months or so that I have had them painted.

So much time in fact that *two* friends who I initially played Underworlds with (Curis and Asslessman) with while using these figures have gone on to paint and blog theirs since, one even having his shown in White Dwarf.

Bitter?  C’est moi.  Have I learned a lesson about self-discipline?  Not really.

Better photo? Worse? I can’t tell anymore. It’s done at least, thats the most important thing.

If you fancy getting into playing Underworlds, then you could do a lot worse than taking these guys and playing simple, straightforward and very enjoyable knuckle-sandwich delivery strategies to get to grips with the Underworlds rules, which are really solid.

Gryph-Hounds

I would never have guessed that bird-dog-cat models would appeal to me much, but I was wrong. I love the haughty, cocksure, high fantasy feel to these feathered felines (it says “hound” but they look like bird-cats to me).

Necrons 2.0


Deranged, homicidal, hubristic, robotic skeleton pharaohs from space, surrounded by mindless, mechanical minions with massive machine-guns.  Right now I find it difficult to imagine a more appealing theme for a toy soldier project.

Traveling Circus

I went to Nottingham a little while ago for a gaming weekend.  One of the highlights was the opportunity to play some Mordheim with my Carnival of Chaos/Circus of Corruption.  If you can endure the pretty dodgy photography, then you can see a number of weird miniatures looking for treasure and beating up vampires with gym equipment.
