Silver Tower and Shawn Bawn WIP

Goddam it there are so many damn good figures in here!
Priming begins.  Going white this time to really make them pop.
Not set on colour schemes yet.

I thought I would play with some blending and stroke medium from Jo Sonja's range. I dragged out an old figure for some fun.

Still a ways to go, but I am impressed with the stuff.  Just need some practice and a few tests to see if it is trustworthy.

Climbing the Silver Tower

During roll20 dnd this morning I assembled the remaining sprues of Silver Tower minis.  (Pats back)  I considered finishing my cultists, but I find I have to really  concentrate to paint.  Smooshing grey plastic crack is about the level of concentration I need for me to effectively roleplay my angry little moon elf warrior street rat pocket rocket with ease. 

Last DnD session I glued together my project Z female survivors. Today it was my current shame project, The Silver Tower.  Next sunday?  Probably rebasing Doom minis.

To be fair, I wanted to wait til I moved in before finishing this game, the figures are so lovely that a little bit of special love was needed.

Also they are fragile as fuck.

I held off on the second monster sprue because I don't like doubles, so some conversions are in order.  I usually convert whilst doing commissions to eat up spare putty, this lot will need serious attention so I think they must wait until after my two remaining comissioned sculpts.

Oh, I also fucketh ye up olde Tenebrae Shard's fragile bits (no, not those fragile bits).  He will need some putty loving too.  I am also not sold on his face.

  I am not a fan of the thaumaturge face, and am thinking of switching it out for his staffs skull head.  Way cooler.

As for the second sprue, a little arm switching and head reposing would be a good start, but I have my heart set on doing the AOS28 (stoopid name) sightless conversion on the horrors I saw on Twitter the other week.  Way creepy.  I have that huge box of sprues coming back with me after xmas, so conversion parts aplenty!  Sure, the shame project will have to wait, but hey... cool minis!  Forgivable yes?

Last night I pushed along my Cthulhu cultists and cowgirls paintjobs but forgot to take pics.  Soz.

Elizabeth Summers and her Posse

Lil' Ole me dun made hersself a little bit of progress this very night.  On none 'tother but my Dead Man's Hand posse.  Yours truely was floundering about for themes, when I struck upon the mighty fine idea of making them akin ta alternative universe versions of characters I love.  That's some darn tootin grade a problem solvin' y'asks me.

So folk, we have what will as be 'Lizabeth Summers, Hope Lehane of The Boston Lehanes, Zoe Leafwind, Deputy Hawt and her Partner Waverly Earp (some folk talk have it they are sly for each 'oer), oh... and golly of it taint Ma Summers and her trader friend Drummer Gee with a pair o' shotguns. A thankee.

I dun halfway through this fine bunch o ladies.  Skin is last because I found a bunch of seams that need a fixin' for I can go on.

Gonna mosey off to my bed.  Nite folks.

Text message of C'Thulhu

I grabber this Eldrich Horror mini from Reaper many moons ago, and it was about time I painted her up.  However the face was a little dull for my tastes, the eyes on the side of the head don't scream predator, so I resculpted the face.

I did this in two layers. The first was greenstuff, the second my fave blend of 50:50 procreate and aves apoxie sculpt.  The latter is very firm and lends itself to building up masses very well.

Still lots to do on her.  I keep finding seams, do will have to give her a once over with a rat tail diamond file  after she has dried well.

Hello? Oh hi C'thulhu, thanks for calling

Pulp Miniatures hooded minions

Just a quick work-in-progress pic for you to enjoy.  I made some progress over the last few days on my bargain bin score from my local bricks-and-mortar store.  Despite my best mental backflips, I am still buying minis faster than I paint them.  That just won't do.

Things have been a little stressful this past month so I found myself reaching for the healing power of impulse buying to soothe my troubled soul. 
I must confess, I spent a little too much of late setting up my home with vital supplies of kitchen utensils, fruit, storage containers,  Dead Man's Hand Daughters of The West minis, a few Reaper bones minis and art supplies.

Oh.  And Buffy Funko Pops.

Vital stuff.

So I have managed to start turning around my backlog nicely, though as yet have nothing finished.  These cultists should be rather easy to get across the finish line.

The minis (from Pulp Miniatures) are pleasant and simple, easy to assemble and paint with plenty of gaming applications.  I give them two thumbs up and will definately be buying more of the range in the future.

Cannot have cultists without some horrors for them to summon, and I had this Reaper Mini's Spawn of Cthulhu laying around.  She is just perfect for the job.  I am part way through resculpting her face because... well, for starters... I can *sticks tongue out*.

But I think the eyes where too far to the side in the original, and this will have more impact.  I am also eying off the wings for further resculpting at a later date.

This whole thing makes me want to track down some classic Cthulhu minis.

PAXaus Reaper Paint and Take

Yesterday I had the honour of being a speaker on the Women In Games panel "Always Here" at PAX Australia.  It was a fantastic day of catching up with gamedev friends and supporting girl devs.

  Today, however, I had little on, so I decided to kill some time at the Reaper Minis Paint and Take tables tickling some bones with a hairy stick.  I got a leeeeetle bit carried away, and painted three minis.

The competition was nail biting, and the audience where really damned lovely and we chatted nervously as the judge picked over our offerings.  All the suspense paid off and I ended up winning a champion spot...

Or... you know...

three champion spots.

Three of the five bases are belong to me.  Bwa ha ha ha.

Actually, putting aside my braggy-for-laughs character I play here for a moment and being genuine fragile, insecure me... I am giddy as a school girl.  I haven't won anything since I was one, and even then it was third prize at our local Virgin Games Grenadier minis painting competition.

So yeah.  Stoked.

All entries had to be painted then and there at the tables using the supplied paints and brushes.  No lamps.  No scalpels to clean up the models.

I maaaaay have purchased quite a few Reaper minis whilst at PAX.  What was that?  Of course I will post pics here... tis what I do.


*dances off*

I picked up the 25th anniversary mini, familliars of land and sea, victorians, pugwampis, a cowgirl and a ghostly hanging judge.
The sea familliars are for my recent pirate thing.  I mainly got the familliars for the pug and iguana.  Because reasons.

I am tempted to kick off some female wild west teams after I get through all these.

Roll20 UX experience

So I player my first roll20 gsme yesterday and have come to the conclusion that it desperately needs a UX (user experience) designer to work on it.

Thought I would list out my suggestions for great improvement.

1: List player names and character name on avatar.

2: amalgamate tabs and floating UI into one tab set. On right, keep play space uncluttered.

3: make seperate, obvious tab for toggling between character sheet and tabletop.

4: make tab icons more obvious.

5: GM hits button to auto generate initiative order for combat, instantly placing a strip down left with each chararacter and enemy in order.  First is highlighted- current player has YOUR TURN message and sound.  Avatar is highlighted and framed, token is framed.

6: Enemy tokens get numbers appearing top left so you can discuss which is which and this appears in the creature's initiative order entry.

7: dice rolls show dice image and big bright FAT numbers.  Critical rolls make different sounds.

8: current armed weapon icons appear above your avatar when it is your turn. Click to roll to hit, they then have a damage icon next to them.

9: hitpoint tracker circles around PCs allows GM to track HP. Players see just their own.

10: player maps scroll to include newly revealed enemies. Checkbox this off if you don't like it.

11: optional wound and heavily woundee icons for enemies and/or PCs. Simplified to one, two or three red slashes signifying light, medium and heavily wounded appearance.

12: GM sets a big, fat count down for waiting game.  Optional GAME HAS BEGUN voice announcement calls players to their computer.

What are your thoughts?

13: character sheet is a mess.  Fat icons on anything that can be rolled.

14: hitpoint tracker, spells, weapons, skills can be seperated from sheet and brought up in mini tabs.

15: launch pop ups as browser tabs as default behaviour.

Power weekend

I put in a killer session yesterday and managed a great many things. I am proud of me. Yes, yes I am.

First up, I assembled and based up my Female Zombie Survivors from Project Z.  The sprue is lacking in useful things like head and arm variants, but chockers full of RPGS, rifles and uzis for some reason.  Details are a touch too fine and fragile, and posing them so their hands meet their guns is a bit of a bitch without ball sockets.  Still, I persisted and with a lot of filler and a somewhat chewed tongue got this little ragtag bunch together.  I would rate the kit as 'good, but flawed'.  A version 2.0 would be very welcome.

They scale pretty well against Walking Dead Total War minis on the table- but a touch smaller.  I much prefer WD:TW in material, thickness, character and durability.

Speaking of Walking Dead: All Out War, I base coated and washed these little loot tokens.  An easy kill.

Enough of all the Z stuff, now onto R stuff.  Well, arrrrrrr stuff.


I actually got to apply some paint, having found said paints as I unpacked on Saturday.  My back is killing me by the way, thanks for asking.  It was nice to return to the hobby, albeit in a limited space with a limited selection of paints.  But I have tools aplenty.  I have tools up the wazoo.

TMI perhaps.

Aaaaaanyway, behold! This is my Work In Progress shot of The Merry Skyjackers.  I don't know about you, (I really, really I don't) but I love to come up with backstories and names for my figures whilst I paint.  I know, I am missing a few screws.

Story of my life.

So in the mix are Crusader, Artesan and Reaper pirates.  I may have a slight pirate mini thing right now.  I dunno why.

Oh, and I switched to a new blogger app as blogger is just flat broken now. But answering comments isn't available in the new app. I am not ignoring you.  Shit is never easy.  For interactions, you can follow me on Twitter using this handle: @delaneykingrox

Life is slowly returning to the light.

First day back on hobby

It is only my first day back on the hobby so I thought I would start slow.  Just a bit of base prep tonight then basing and priming tomorrow.  I am aiming to get back in the swing of things, and slowly work my way back to sculpting.  Aquiring lamps tomorrow to that effect.  Two outstanding commissions to do.

Most of these minis where just what was on sale at my local bricks and mortar.  I nabbed me some bargains.

So here we have a couple of ranges of pirates, official DnD blink dogs, Spoderman villain clix, pulp cultists, Reaper anniversary minis and super rare Sandra Prangle from McDeath.

Oh and Paternoster Detective Agency, Clara Oswald the greatest assistant and the second worst Doctor Who thanks to Moffat. Fite me.

So spot any delicious new minis you like?

Thursday, October 19, 2017


I am no longer homeless!  Hooray!  No, wait... upgrade that to a huzzah!

Throw in a 'hey nonny no' for good measure. You've earned it.

So yes, I am now a denizen of bright bohemian Collingwood in sunny* Melbourne.  It is very gay and very artisan breaddy and coffee snobby.

(*usally pissing down)

So to celebrate my total lack of space, I purchased two Chessex carry cases.

They good.  They very good.

You can't buy a case without something to go in it, so some Artisan pirates looked at me funny from the bargain bin.  I picked up two Reaper pirates for a budget warband.

Also those stone finished Renedra bases are bound for Funko Pops! That didn't ship with stands.

Hobby time returneth.

I feel like life is restarting.  I have a new home, new phone, new job and PAXaus is very soon.  See y'all there.


Thursday, August 10, 2017


Well, I know it's been awhile, but great things are a'happenin'.


First up, I am a keynote speaker at NZGC, so if you are in New Zealand come and say hi.

So I have returned to Melbourne, and am now the Art Director at Tantalus Media and it's sister company Straight Right.  This means I can afford to get a home soon and my minis shipped back to me, ta da da dum, I am back to painting minis and stuff!

First purchase in a long while... I grabbed some Pulp Hooded Minions packs that where in the bargain bin- awesome figures- guess noone plays pulp around here.  Oh well, their loss.

Hope you are all having a great time!

13th Doctor

I just wanna say I totally regenerated into a woman before The Doctor made it cool.

Welcome Jodie, and safe travels!  Can't wait for the miniatures!

Friday, July 7, 2017


I arrived back in Melbourne today to start my new job on monday, and as a wonderful omen this wee lassy was waiting for me at my friend's house.

This is Sandra Prangle, one of the McDeath set, which I am now only two figures from having it all its entirety.

I traded her for some artwork a while back, but have only just returned to claim her.  :)

Can't wait to paint her.

Fenris Games stock Darkling

Fenris Games now stock my Darkling Minis- and you can buy individual minis from Geronimo as he breaks uo my boxed sets (which I can't do because I have no storage right now).

I will be back in business properly in the next two months, and will get the chance to expand my range then (having all my lovely greens back from storage and a home address!)

Anyhoo- pop over to Fenris to grab some Dwerg and Toad love!

Countdown begins

Something wonderful has happened and I am only one or, at most, two months away from getting my entire collection back!
Big announcement soon- and no doubt a flood of exciting posts here as I finally get to finish off some figures!

Thanks for all the support folks X

Wednesday, June 7, 2017


I got to hang out with Gary Hunt and Johnny Fraser-Allen at WETA workshop today and shoot the breeze about sculpting miniatures.  We are all mutual fans.  Naw.

Frikking awesome guys, and their work is just awesome.  :)

Got a quick tour of The Cave and got to stroke the full scale working Halo Warthog, chill with the green goblin suit, weild the District 9 prop gun and swing a Narnian centaur sword.

Then hang out for dinner with a bunch of old mates from my Animal Logic days.

Miramar Freebooterz

No!  You're in New Zealand at The Roxy hanging out with The Miramar Freebooterz.

It's WETA's local gaming group, so naturally the minis are a bit good!

A dirty three way on a table.  Pew pew- only one B wing made it out alive!

Lots of pictures of people I don't know looking down on us!

Tomorrow I am doing a talk at Game Developers of Wellington about creature design.  Been a blast so far!

Undead wave 2

I love Mantic stuff for the most part, and the Undead are great funx. This is all from a single sprue of Skellys.  More characterful faces for sure; very Sam Raimi.

This batch is fronted by Isabella Von Carstein. A great sculpt.  Sadly, she is finecast.  I wouldn't have purchased it for myself, but I won't look this xmas vampire horse in the mouth whilst flogging it.  Hey, can I get some more mixed metaphors over here please?

All together now!

It's gonna be interesting to see if the paint job ties them all together like The Dude's rug.

It's nice getting back into the hobby.  I don't quite have all the tools and lighting I need to do it properly but I am muddling through.

Skeleton Hordes boxed set

If you had told me when I first sat down to assemble my Skeleton Hordes boxed set back in 1987 that it would be thirty years until I finished a squad, I would look at you like... "who the fuck are you and what are you doing in my house?".

Oh, and you are an asshole for time travelling back that far and not actually doing anything productive with it.  

But, sadly, you would not be wrong.  I did paint a few back then, following Phil Lewis's chestnut ink advice at the time.  Bad Little me never finished the box off.

So yeah, I picked up a box of broken skeletons about five years ago of ebay and finally dragged them out today.  I haven't been able to hobby in a while and my doctor suggested I do something  to try and cheer myself up.  Naturally, I did what all sane people would do and the set about sticking together walking cadavers from my childhood.  Doctor's orders.


The kit was half assembled, well battered and a few poor lost souls where dunked in enamel paint. Apparently noone told the previous owner that black gloss isn't a great undercoat.  The eight shown where straightforward, three more needed repairs and are currently undergoing some greenstuff loving.

The last batch of around 8 are, annnoyingly, missing skulls- no doubt adorning some bases and banners out there somewhere.  I didn't want to waste all the remaining bodies, so I hacked off their neck stubs and drilled a socket in each ready to accept a wire.  I am sure I can find enough interesting helmets in my kitbox over the coming months and maybe even sculpt some faceless wraith hoods for them.

To wrap up this warband, I made up the Warhammer Necromancer from my xmas haul box.  I actually liked the model as-is, so the only change I made was to shave off the edges of the square base and mount him on a Rendra base.  I was also thinking I may swap his head for something a little more feminine.

His little igor sidekick is a Gnoblar from the Ogres kit, with a head from a Flagellant.  I just shaved off the neck stubs and used a ball of Greenstuff sandwhiched between some superglue to pose the head- then when dry filled in the remaining gaps with putty.

I will top off the skellys with some Marauder Minis shields I set aside for them.

I am going to prime these white for a change.  My friend Steven has donated me a big box of cote d'arms paints so I can return to painting.  All mine are in storage either in Melbourne or Sydney.  Which is fucking annoying.  I keep getting stranded away from my stuff.  I am gonna be leaving limbs behind at this rate.

Skulldred Errata so far

Here are some errata for the GX Skulldred:

So I just noticed that the entire wildside page is missing entirely from this build. 

It works like this- on a 'wild' roll, your model performs its wildside action (bottom left of card).

 A hero reads a wild as 2 pips.  A leader as 3 pips.  Rolling a wild is a good thing for them.

Any model within near range of a hero or leader is inspired and instead read their wild as 2 or 3 pips respectively.
A model within far range of a leader who can draw line of sight to them also gets 2 pips on a wild as they are under command of that leader.  Downed Leaders and Heroes do not inspire or command, funnily enough.

Sample wildsides provided in demo are;

Lock up - model loses activation. If engaged in combat, disengage- if you cannot do so, roll 1 critical hit die.
Vanish- model dissapears back to the dark realm it came from, cackling as it goes.
Blind Fury- make 1 move action towards nearest model and attack it- friend or foe.  If two or more models are equal distance, Roll die to determine which player gets to decide which is chosen- on a hit- owning player, on a miss, opponent.

The full rules have dozens of wildside options, each giving you more points the more terrible!  Advanced rules include terror- which blocks inspiration and command, standard bearers and musicians which chain command from a leader to distant models and spells which impose wildsides on heroes and leaders.

If a weapon is marked as 'reload', place a reload counter next to the model or on its profile card.
A reload action takes 1 pip.

Some weapons require 2 pips worth of reloads- they get two reload counters on their card.

When any ranged weapon rolls zero hit dice, it has jammed or it requires some attention before it can fire again.  Place a reload counter on it.

Have fun X}

Skulldred GX Aus demo version released!

Its buggy, with typos and yeah... I don't care because it is 3am and I jump on a bus in a few hours to get to Sydney.  Here... take it, print it, play it, have fun and don't whinge about the crappiness until I get a chance to fix it.  Yes, the forces are not balanced- I didn't have time to set up the scenery cut outs and did I mention I am exhausted?  bkwgfequwegfuwegfouwqegfuwgqefwannasleeeeep

Proper, proof read version coming after GX.  Promise X

Kings Minis Patreon Rewards in works.

Hey you.  You look nice today.  Done something different with that drooling Nurgle infection?

Anyhoo... I shall just leave this here...

Sample tutorial for my Patreons
I have half a dozen articles done just needing to be layed out.  Also up for grabs is my original RPG system from when I was a teen as a fun little extra reward.

Okay, gotta sleep.  Stay frosty!

King gets a Kingpin

Don't ya just love ordering a bunch of minis online, then losing your job the next day?  Yep.

Oh well.  I am getting used to bad things happening.  It's really toughened me up. I am like a honeybadger.  A big, dykey honeybadger.  In a ninja gi.  Probably with an eighties film gang member headband.  I am now so tough, I could be a backing dancer in Michael Jackson's Bad.  Scary.

The good news is that now I have time for Darkling Games and my Kingsminis video channel.  I am back at The Arcade and things are looking great.  One day a week is full time on Darkling minis orders, sculpts and kickstarters, one day is dedicated to Kings minis TV and it's Patreon rewards- including Skulldred and Stardred betas.  The rest of the week will be focused on video games asset creation and commissions.  I officially open for business next monday.

Sooo aaanyway...

Heroclix.  Got some.  Mainly for my inner ten year old who was so dissapointed by Iron Fist I needed to give her a decent Marvel fix.

First things first, off with those huge pointless bases.  Shazam!

A butter knife is a great way to pop these off.  A katana, not so much.  Good god they hold katanas badly in Iron Fist.  *sigh*

As you can viddy, my droogs- Kingpin got himself some security. Well, they are actually gonna be backup for the two IMEF minis from PAXAus.  They will probably spend most of their table time blasting the brains out of walking dead and project Z zombies.  I have to convert them, I hate fielding identical minis.

Heroclix have some pretty cool sculpts, but as I am not a huge comic nerd I tend to only know the characters from my teen years- and that means Secret Wars I era.  Most clix are... mmmmm less than ideal for repainting. The clix game itself holds no interest for me either, but the challenge of making a prepaint look good?  Well, that I can get behind.  I have buckets of DnD, Horrorclix and Starwars prepaints in my lock up, so you will no doubt see me tackle them at some point.

I think I am gonna recast this JJ in the role of a cthulu character.  He looks particularly at home with these new Wizkids' Blink Dogs.  $7 for two blink dogs?  Hell yeah.

Yes, I buy all the dog miniatures.  All of them.  Frikkin' Wyrd know this.  Next time I have M£N€¥$, I have to catch up on my Malifaux undead dog collection.  Giant undead dog with a gut full of rats?  Yes please.  So yes.

I don't know what's wrong with me either.

Doc Ock is my favourite.  A touchy feely Roy Orbison in pajamas?  Sold!
Venom?  Looks like he belongs at a KISS concert.  Or roadkill.  I dunno.  I will figure out what to do with him later.

Look, I will be honest with ya... I got the set for Ock, JJ and Kingpin.  The Spidey looks like he is soooo bored, and it is rubbing off on... er... Gobbey... Greenie?  Whatever.  When I think Spiderman, I think dynamic mid swing or crouching.  This one looks like he is handing a bus ticket to an inspector.

I wonder who will get the Marvel license after Knight?  Kinda hoping Mantic after their Walking Dead triumph.  I would snap up some of their figures but... well, snap is the optimal word for their products (yes I am still pissed about my Harley mini snapping at the stupidly thin ankles) and I can't justify $25 for one  Racoon when I can get a box of 25 zombies for $50.

Welp, gonna love painting these up.  Just need my paints back from my former work.

He'll be back

Ged doo dah choappah! Remember that big assed bag of imperial guard Cadians I got from a bargain bin a while back?

Welp, did a quick test peice painting directly over the original paint job.

I started off with an overbrush of Cryx Base to flatten out the original glossy finish.  A wash of army painter dark, then I dusted up through the dirt colours of my base.  I forget their names.  Dirty McDirt and Soily McSoil, with a Tyrant Skull finish.

The skin was done using a neat trick I have been using lately- by mixing the shading wash into the base paint colour coat, it both flows more easily and ties tighter to the shade.  In this case Reikland Flesh mixed in with a VMC flesh that shall remain anonymous for... uh... reasons.  Look, I haven't slept much lately.

I am tempted to fix the arms seams by building over those gloriously ridonkulous deltoids with a little green stuff- however as my sculpty kit is packed away, that will have to wait.

Overall, he was fast and fun to paint.  I have a small squad picked from the bag that I will do for now so I can use them to play Stardred with.  The rest will have a lovely bath in dettol to easy away their pains.  They may become parts for freakish cultists.  Because that's how I roll.

My Cryx army arrived today.  Not a bad paint job on them at all- however they are destined for tutorial video fodder- so they too shall know the delicious kiss of dettol.

Okay- gonna go bang gorgeous chicks in a satanic blood orgy of wanton destruction the likes of which makes angels tremble.  Kidding.  It's cup of tea and bed for me.  X

Painting handles

I discovered there is a Bunnings Hardware superstore next to a Petbarn superstore next to a Craft Superstore.  I am in this little nirvana now.  I am a happy little warcrafter.

Seriously, if you don't make use of these stores in your mini adventures you are a fool.  I pity you.  Hell, Mr. T probably pities you.

An example of the wonders to be found within these treasure troves would be my new painting handles.  Look, behold... gander even.

It's a lightweight, flat bottomed, flat topped ball just the right size for a human or even a wargamer's hand.

I have cunningly clad this bad boy in bluetac to make with the 'gripping of the miniature'.

This is especially handy now I switched to minimal bases.  Slippery little suckers.

Another handy thing you can get are these precut balsa wood blocks, which are ideal for sculpting miniatures on.  You can stick the foot wires into them easier than cork, and they rest comfortably in your palm, so your fingers don't get tired quickly.  My advice is to wrap them in masking tape to stop them getting your hands and hobby environment dusty.  I cover the tops in a fine layer of milliput or apoxie, which I sand to get a smooth, even surface.  This makes sculpting the feet flush much easier, and you can sculpt little details like faces and shields on them before moving them to the main figure.

I will be doing a video on these tricks and a PDF for my patreon supporters shortly.

Got any craft store tips?  Comment below! X

New Oldhammer minis

So... I was looking for modern sculpts of oldhammer minis and it's actually a lot harder than it looks.  I can find kickstarters but no online shops.

Pantheon of Chaos seems to have vanished, there where some great space orka I can't find and star civilians.  Zoats too... but where?

Are there a stack of oldhammer moulds out there not being sold?  Can I do something to change that?

Comments below.  ;)

Any Cryx fans in the house?  I used some of my Patreon money to grab this Cryx army off ebay for a bargain $200.  Merci beaucoup for the support folks.  This is going to be something to use in my tutorials.

I already have a bunch of these in storage, so I don't feel uneasy converting doubles.  And lo, there shall be much converting and buggery with this little lot.

Anything you would like to see done with them, comments below!

Sunday session- Eureka!

Bosch, Bosch, Bosch, loads of Bruegel.

Some major progress on a lot of minis tonight, Walking Dead, Silver Tower, Reaper and those Eureka minis.  Here is a work in progress of the latter madness.

They are bonkers.  Allegorical characters that are extremely fun to paint.  I decided on muted colours inspired by Bruegel.

Also, remember my massive Reaper Horde I scored at PAX?  Well here is some progress.

Settling on a single consistent theme has really guven me an injection of hobby energy!

Also, ever notice placing a Tardis makes all characters look like Dr. Who characters?
