Tony Yates’s Alien Dignitary

Last night I dug into the tray of half-painted models and tried to push a few over the line. One that made it was this characterful sculpt from Tony Yates. He was a giveaway from BOYL 2016, and would make a great NPC for any sci-fi skirmish.

Sci-fi Vampire sculpt

After a bit of a break, I’ve picked up my sculpting tools again, partly spurred on by the Oldhammer Chaos Pig contest. I’ve also been finishing off some long run WIP in with a view to getting another casting run done.

Space Vampire sculpt

My recent sculpts are a bit of a mixed bag, […]

Ornithopter with WIP wings

I’m building another ornithopter, which will be fitted with solid wings. It’s a resin model moulded for me by Curtis of Ramshackle games. Now all I have to do is finish the wings, which are well underway, as you can see below.

The original model had insect style wings, which Curtis made for […]

Woodcutter’s son

“Make the boy see sense”, she turned to her husband in desperation. “I just want to make something of myself, that’s all”, her son retorted “that Tom from Top Farm bought Betsy ribbons at the fayre. Where am I going to get money like that if I stay here?”.

“At least trees won’t fight you […]

Adventurers

After a lazy few months – health not so good – thought I would finish off a few figures that have been sitting around with a few daubs for some time. I think they are Reaper figures, but could be wrong. Guy with the mace is a bit awkwardly posed – although that could be […]

Bloodletters

My painting rules for 2017 have been bent a little (see New Year post here), in that I’ve been painting a load of Antares stuff for Rowan, that isn’t in the tray. But I have also finished this unit which was in the tray at New Year. They too belong to Rowan and were a […]

Bob Olley hybrids

Another couple for the growing cult. These are the fantastic Bob Olley sculpts with new plastic arms. The one on the right spent a couple of decades in the corner of the cabinet with the original hybrid arms and an autocannon. Just didn’t suit him and he languished half painted and unloved (albeit with the […]

Frostgrave worm

“Begone, foul hell spawn”. A somewhat outclassed apprentice tries to see off this looming menace with a newly memorised bit of magic.

Frostgrave worm – model from Ramshackle

One of the more unusual monsters in the basic Frostgrave rulebook is the Giant Worm. I’ve been trying to collect up all the monsters and bits […]

Genestealer hybrid with flamer

Genestealer hybrid with flamer

Last year Rowan bought a box of Deathwatch Overkill to form the basis of a hybrid army. The Neophyte and Acolyte boxes have further swelled their numbers, but that still wasn’t enough, and there are plenty of spare parts on the sprues. So, to supplement the hybrids in mining gear, we’ve also been doing some […]

Brethren are complete – for now

The ‘Brethren of Ultimate Sanction’ – a batch of models that started with last year’s Oldhammer figure from Ramshackle Games has finally cleared the painting tray. The first two can be seen here http://www.warfactory.co.uk/wp/2016/12/23/brethren-of-ultimate-sanction/

Monk and flagellant

On the left is a Black Tree monk – I bought a pack of 4 in a […]
