Re: twisted moon's 2017

as expected, productivity has dropped off greatly. finally managed to finish these fantasy warriors orc conversions however.

Re: twisted moon's 2017

the final conversions are proving hard going, mostly because i'm not that inspired by them. in the meantime i placed another order with ral partha europe, mostly of dwarfs but also including the heartbreaker daemons sculpted by kev adams. i've based them for frostgrave as that's where they're most immediately likely to see action. they'll also get used wherever there's a reason for daemons to be summoned.

i'll use these ones as imps in frostgrave:

... and i'll use these as minor daemons:

any suggestions for a readily available, reasonably priced major daemon to complement these? or failing that, some appropriate wings to attach to this: http://www.scotiagrendel.com/Products/i ... ts_id=2763?

Re: twisted moon's 2017

Those are some nice imps! For a moment, I thought that the two smaller ones were converted Squigs from the 90s :) I do think that the "Ever Hungry" from Scotia Grendel would fit very nicely with the others. Wings from a demon prince or something like that would look great, but don't know where to get some for a reasonable price.

Nice, now I finally know where this Squig-Demon-Thing I have laying around for years is from :D

heartbreaker did some lovely figures; they're one of my favourite ranges. i saw a kickstarter a month or two back from a different company to bring back the range; whilst they had a few additional figures, i hope this doesn't mean ral partha europe will have to cease production.
this week i've continued to ignore the final orc spear conversions and have instead painted these trolls; again from my recent rpe order:

the middle one is heartbreaker again, whilst the other two are from ral partha's own range. they're quite short compared to some of the more modern orcs i have, so i thought i'd raise them up on rocky plinths, for which i used soft polystyrene from pizza packaging (i think); i then used uhu to stick the integral bases to the plinths, which caused the polystyrene to melt. whilst not my intention, it has countersunk them quite nicely. here's a slightly different angle:

whilst they will again, most likely, first see use in frostgrave, i was unsure how to base them, as they may also see action with my goblinoids / fomorions. i finally decided to base them up to match the goblinoids, only to promptly forget / get carried away when i was actually painting the bases, so now they look more suited to a ruined urban environment. never mind, i'll still use them alongside the goblinoids as required.

thanks; nothing complicated, just a coat of valejo grey-green over a black base-coat, then used 'the dip'. once that varnish was dry I painted everything else and black-washed the entire figure.
since then, i've continued to ignore the conversions required to finish the orc spear unit and have made a start on harboth's orc archers, with a few hangers-on to bring the unit up to 30.

Re: twisted moon's 2017

the summer was mostly taken up preparing my scenario for tobcon (http://forum.strike-to-stun.net/viewtopic.php?t=5835), but i have managed to get a bit done since my last update. here's my take on the mausoleum for frostgrave.

the roof comes off to allow placement of figures inside, if required. i'd like to add a altar, once i can find a suitable piece.

Re: twisted moon's 2017

i also painted up these chests as treasure markers (again primarily for frostgrave).

the one on the far right will also double as a black ark (as per 'vengeance of the lichemaster' from citadel journal spring '86) for my skaven.

Re: twisted moon's 2017

then i worked on this church from timeline miniatures (https://www.timelineminiatures.co.uk/). from these pictures it looks as though i need to do a bit more work on the walls.

it will give some more decent height options in frostgrave, and other games for which i use ruins.
