Skaven Warlocks

“Magic is just science that you don’t understand yet! Now eat Mind Bullet Incantation Cannon!”

With Frostgrave 2nd edition on the way, I decided to paint a magical ratman duo.

Warcry Ruined City/Starter Set Terrain

“Ruined City”

One of the big draws of the Warcry starter set is the really lovely set of terrain in the box, plastic ruins designed to set the scene of a ruined city, long ago abandoned to barbarism by a retreating force of “good” guys.

For multiple reasons, I had been itching to get the set set painted since release, about a year ago.

Ratnarok the Unseen, Verminlord Deceiver

Some giant anthropomorphic rat daemon miniatures are bigger than others. This one was… enormouse.

I’m prepping for some Rangers of Shadowdeep games, working on a range of bits and pieces from all sorts of sources.

Thorns of the Briar Queen

Painting the Sepulchral Guard was fun, so I got stuck into another undead Underworlds warband immediately afterwards.

Sepulchral Guard

Seven skeletons painted primarily for Warhammer Underworlds, but really to be used in any game where I want to get my Harryhausen on.

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.”
— Virgil, The Aeneid, Book III, ll. 253-257… assuming that TVTropes, where I copied it from, is correct, cos I’m not that literary by a looong shot.

Corvids, Greek myth, eighties political satire, Contrast paint and Bob Olley = profit.

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).
