What, Blue Pussycat? Whoa, whoa, whoa!

This was revealed by Duncan on Warhammer TV a little earlier today


Its a non-canonical blue gyrinx, the second ever 40k model of their psychic space cat…

…and its entertainingly similar in colour to my non-canonical blue gyrinx ūüôā

Oh Hai Cassis


Eldar Outcast L’Oreal Wangst and newly psychically bonded gyrinx Cassis step from the “Free Candy” onto the surface of Imp.Reg: 450-495 “Kyaneos” under the watchful eye of Stern Woorning, a squat of questionable honour.

I painted another tiny space cat.

Im involved in an online RPG with some toy soldier buddies at the moment. ¬†Its a lovingly prepared framework of shenanigans with the express purpose of encouraging¬†us all to try to make each other laugh, in spaaace. ¬†My character – L’Oreal Wangst: Eldar Outcast¬†psychically bonded with a gyrinx recently, so I decided to paint one to match.

This was of course engineered by the GM, who knew that if he put a space cat in the game that I would go for it and that I would likely paint a model for it.  So I was either manipulated in an embarassingly transparent fashion or it was simply a win/win situation.  I choose to see it as the latter.


Cassis the Gyrinx. The photo is a bit grainy, sorry. Its a tiny model though: thats a 20mm diameter base.

“Cassis” was the smallest miniature feline that I could find in my “Familiars” box. ¬†I cant even remember where I got it (if you know then please comment). ¬†I think that its technically a “vampire cat”, hence the larger teeth than usual, barely visible in the grainy photo above. ¬†Frankly the teeth are barely visible in hand either…


G.I.N.G.E.R, Steeljaw, renowned dreadball coach Mr. D’Arcy, ships gyrinx on the “Dirty Doubloon” Mr Scuttle, Paul, Friskers, Rampage.

My space cat miniature usual suspects to date are shown above (click the image to make them easier to see).

GINGER: Cyber-Gyrinx


I like cats, I like robots and I like miniatures, ergo I present G.I.N.G.E.R (General Intelligent Nullification and Galactic Exploration Replicant)

GINGER is my entry into the “Future Wars Painting¬†Club” on LAF. ¬†The model is a “Robo-Cat” from Crossover Miniatures. ¬†Its quite a titchy little thing.

“Steeljaw” the yellow psychic space cat (gyrinx) above is todays¬†new model. ¬†It was sitting 90% complete on my painting table for the last year or so. ¬†I finally got inspired to add some stripes and finish its pelt last week while I had some off white on the palette. ¬†That makes four of the little space scamps¬†that I have painted to date (including Mister Darcy, my DreadBall Offensive Coach¬†who I forgot to¬†picture here for some reason).


I should hopefully have some more substantial figures finished over the next few days, but ill health is scuppering my schedule at the moment.  Ho hum.

Gyrinx #2: Rampage


Gyrinx number 3

Not actually the second gyrinx, but the second post about gyrinx (whats the plural of gyrinx anyway? ¬†“Gyrinx” surely, like “sheep”). ¬†Its probably not going to be the last post about space cats around here either… Continue reading


Gyrinx – L to R: Mr D’Arcy, Paul

I got a little distracted from my ongoing and quite substantial DreadBall project over the last few days and painted these two guys.  I did base one of the figures for use as a DreadBall coach though, so I didnt get completely sidetracked.

These furry¬†little predators are domestic cat models bought from the sadly very soon to be no more¬†Mega Miniatures, painted to represent a bit of old school 40k nonsense called “Gyrinx”. Continue reading
