Showcase: Old Iron King


Here's the Old Iron King! Yes, it's another Dark Souls boss.

Big dude, big base, waist-deep in lava. Hero figures for scale. :)

Hope you like him!

Showcase: Samnites Army Shots


...and then, they were done. Quite the project, and one I'm proud of I have to admit. Mostly due to the insane amounts of individual adornments on the armour, outfits and shields on every single figure.

Not much to say really. Lots of pretty Xyston figures, lots of pointy spears, just a cool, cool army. 

The pictures can't really get the look across, but I hope that they get close to it and that you like them!

Showcase: Black Dragon Kalameet


Black Dragon Kalameet! One of the Mega-Bosses of the Dark Souls board game.

As with so many Dark Souls bosses, a bit hard to pin down visually. Takes some research and interpretation, but I think I got it.

As usual with those bosses, I try to get the base (which is huge, by the way. All the more space to play around) 'right' and get the idea of the boss arena across.

A good dragon figure, that. It's funny that a game which tends to have pretty outlandish boss fight designs has a very keen sense for getting dragons right. Which is a thing I appreciate. Hope you like him!

Showcase: Explorers Expansion


Yes, another Dark Souls board game expansion! Above you can see a little comic strip I made, because this one contains the Mimic, and Mimics are endless sources of joy.

Showcase: Samnites, pt.2


The army is about 95% hoplites, but there's also some other troops in there, such as cavalry!

Showcase: Ironkeep Expansion


Here's another Dark Souls board game expansion - Ironkeep. It sports a whole bunch of knights - heavily armoured as well as (annoyingly) nimble, ...

...a big old Smelter Demon for a boss and fanciful swordman Sir Alonne as a mini-boss. 

Nothing all too exciting on the painting front; Painting knights is always fun. With Sir Alonne it was kinda hard to decypher how his garments work, as with so many humanoid bosses in Dark Souls. Hope you like them!

Show Report: Austrian Salute 2023


Saturday, June 3rd, finally had us all gather for Austrian Salute again, after a 3 years hiatus. The day before I packed up lots of paints, paintbrushes, showcase figures, figures to deliver to some people I would meet there, the glass cabinet and all the other stuff and drove off to Oberndorf in Salzburg.

Showcase: Asylum Demon


Look at him! It's the Asylum Demon and he feels a-okay. 

Famously the first boss in Dark Souls and usually he shows new players what's what.

This one's from the Asylum Demon expansion for the Dark Souls board game and a fine depiction of the fine fella in 3d miniature form. Hope you like him! (and how couldn't you)

'Look darlin',this is Johnny Ringo... '.  I painted another one of the lovely CGS busts. This time it's Johnny Ringo, old west gun man of some mystery

Showcase: Super Dungeon Explore Pt. 35


Hello, hello. It's time for more Super Dungeon Explore figures. In fact I painted these a good while ago now, but I've done so many that there's still fodder for plenty more blog posts!

Mini-Review: Shrine Luminor


Here's something a bit different - a large piece of plastic by Games Workshop. Terrain. It's the Shrine Luminor.

Heyhey, here's some Arab cavalry in 15mm for Saga. Unfortunately I wasn't to base the figures, but they were quite fun to paint. :) Good, colourful bunch. Hope you like them!

Showcase: Pendraken's English Civil War


Heyhey, here's sample pictures of Pendraken Miniatures' English Civil War range. Maybe you recall that the early to mid 17th century - especially in 10mm - is of special interest to me. So it came as a very nice surprise that Pendraken Miniatures asked me to paint their ECW range for their web store

So  here's just some samples; the full range you can find on the Pendraken web store. They're great figures, and 10mm is a very, very sensible figure size I think. And don't worry about those pikes - they neither break nor bend (easily). Great stuff, do check them out.

Showcase: Dark Souls Darkroot Expansion


Heyhey, here's more board games goodness. Again fantasy, again dungeon crawling, but a wholly different visual style - it's the Darkroot expansion for the Dark Souls board game!

Review: Rubicon Models T34/76 & SU-85 AND SU-122


Heyhey, time for a model kit review! This one's a double feature too, due to the similarities between the kits. Technically it's a triple feature (or threat, if you prefer) even.

Showcase: Guardians of the Galaxy

Heyhey, here's some more Marvel super heroes - it's the Guardians of the Galaxy. (with a glaring omission or two,but that will be rectified soon!)
