Random Encounters n°9

Long time since I posted anything here…I guess there’s times like these. Anyway, I’m rethinking a bit about articles, and since painting is my main activity, I sometimes lack motivation to write about everything who fall under the brushes. So from now on I’m going to talk here mainly about personal projects.

Back to what it’s all about, minis! I’ve achieve a fair amount of an oldschool army, but in between I managed to squeeze some nice additions to the Project Dungeons.

There’s much more out of the family picture, but I’m gonna start with these! If you want to see other tuff, you’ll have to stay with us for a while…

Random Encounters n°8

Here and there between work and bigger projects, I still manage to squeeze some Dungeon associated parts. Here’s the latest batch!

A few characters and monsters, a load of statues then various stuffs from here and there, always handy in an dungeon.

Vodka and Fur Hats

Late middlehammer commision this time, with a little kislevite force, in order to patiently wait for the Old World return.

Nothing exceptional, classic but effective paint scheme. The center regiment are late 2000’s official Kislev range, the dogs are oldhammer dark elves pets, the last three came from Privater Press Khador faction, which fit perfectly the thematic.

Cave Lizards

Well with nothing else to do than paint, at least the lead pile tend to lowering a bit (I mean really just a bit…). So here’s a whole new army intended to be played in Saga Age of Magic.

After one lucky find on the second hand market and a few Ebay frenzy search, I ended up with this new project for an Underworld Saga list. I took extra care to collect only metal models, as they’re more expressive than those poor plastic versions at the time. It sometimes makes it hard to find since the plastic boxes came at a lower price than the lead blisters at the time, but except for Terradons, Lizard and Snakes Swarm and one Saurus champion, I managed to get the whole range.

Random Encounters n°6

Well, not so much of writing these days, although I still got my share of painting, and also too many projects (as usual). So here a few fellows for various uses, in direct line from the (still living (not undead)) project dungeon.

A few baddies and a band of scums. The painting goes as usual, even though I tried something a bit different from time to time, I always landed back to my basics (still a bit annoyed about that). Lire la suite

The Horde

Orctober just ended, and luckily it as started at the same time I decide to finish an army project « only » six months old. As for many I planned to play Saga Age of Magic with minis I already painted. Sadly game mechanics never leaves you this opportunity, so I got to get back to the brushes (and the credit card to) in order to play my Night Goblins as a horde. Many mounted units are involved in this aggressive board, so I got to raid the second hand market, ended up with this lovely pile of lead.

Some lucky trades bring me to these, nice lads to bounce around and bring mayhem while drinking shroom booze!

Random Encounter n°5

Well, it’s been a while. Moving places, all the stuff got to wait in boxes for nearly a month, so not a lot of painting nor blogging around lately. I’m now able to get back to the hobby, but I still got to find marks around a new work space and new schedule. Anyway, I manage to produce these a while ago, and a few more last days, so here’s the pictures!

A new bunch of creepers, a few monsters and various tokens in order to play Rangers of the Shadowdeep, as I tend to dislike cardboard counter, and want my games to be as immersive and narrative as possible. All of this is still part of the Dungeon Project, wich is now back on tracks (with, as usual, sooo many others…) Lire la suite

Lords of the Fall

So after talking about my recent interest for Saga, the logical next step was obviously to add a few projects to the current ones. I got to dig a bit to exhume this load of plastic and lead, laying around for maybe fifteen years. An early stage army from 2002 I guess, never got to paint them all, now here’s the chance.

A few glanzer bathes later and get myself hours of painting ahead (I’m not gonna try to tell I don’t like it). In the pic you can see my original list, but we all know it’s never enough. Old gwists like me knows we like to try each en every entry for the armies we play. So before soon i add many other stuffs to these, and ended up planning a few other compos for a few other factions (more on this later). But in a way, this project cost me very few since I started with almost everything in my possession (meaning I already bought it a long time ago), just to add a few quadruped creatures and maybe planning on acquire flying monsters or warchief options, but that’ll do for the time being.
