Citadel Harpies (#paintabob)

“Grimmer than these scarce any prodigy, nor any plague e’er rose at the wrath of the gods from the Stygian waves: a winged thing with maiden’s face, belly o’erflowing and most foul, a hooked hand, and face hunger-pale forever.”

(Flashing) Enter the Dragon (Rampant)


After thirty years of painting toy soldiers I painted my very first dragon recently, plus its progeny.


The model is part of a dragon related group project that I have been taking part in and so…




Scale Creep” is a new toy soldier related project that I am involved in with a group of productive hobby buddies.

The plan for this new blog is to keep the emphasis on group projects, plus a bit of hobby related schoolboy goofing around too.  The post about this dragon is my first solo contribution to Scale Creep, so pop over and take a look at that and see if it appeals.

The other contributors are talented, interesting and fun guys, so it should feature plenty or worthwhile content as time goes on.

Sho3box isnt going anywhere however and will operate entirely independently of Scale Creep, with overlap here and there as appropriate.

More Shonen Knives are in the pipeline, so expect the next batch of them here soon.

Samurai, Ninja, Orc


Real life is rather busy at the moment, so these four took a little longer to finish than I had hoped.  But I like the way that they turned out all the same.
