  1. Bizarre Bazaar at NYC Games Workshop on 8th street

    Bizarre Bazaar at NYC Games Workshop on 8th street!
    Sturday, MAY 1st is the time when New York GW store on 8th street hold an (semi)annual Bizarre Bazaar! During this even you can sell (or buy!) your most unwanted miniature in the store. This is a great opportunity to unload miniatures that you don’t need and may be, if you are lucky, to buy that rare gem you always wanted but could never find.
    This year, however, there will be MORE! At 2 pm on this day The Crazy Ian’s ...
  2. FW DG dread - finished

    Finaly I finished this geezer. I'm quite happy with the results. I thougt I was finished a couple of days ago, but there were some appealing opinions wich I followed, so I ended up repainting the eyes and the boils.

  3. Week 14: ghouly gathering

    I'm back painting after a weeks break and its a return to an old favourite. In my opinion Crypt ghouls are just such great figures. I love the look of rushing forward with the manic look on the faces and the grasping grabbing hands. Also in a sad, way I love their little back sides!!



    I had quite a problem when I started painting these because I had forgotten the colour scheme that was used with my previous ghouls. For my own future reference I used a base coat of ...
  4. USA Games Day 2011... Memphis?

    Interesting rumors have been circulating lately both on the internet and in person-to-person communications.
    The rumors had it for a while that GW North America is moving its HQ from Baltimore to Memphis, Tennessee, where they already have major production/distribution facilities.
    Couple of weeks ago our local manager suggested that the move of the HQ to Memphis is a distinct possibility. From business point of view it makes sense: Memphis is cheaper then Baltimore and they have ...
  5. Week 13: Slaanesh Marauder horsemen

    For some reason I find painting cavalry figures far more time consuming than I ever imagine that they will be. This week I have painted my second box of slaanesh Maruader horsemen.

    The general idea is that I will end up with three units of slaanesh cavalry armed with throwing spears and with only light armour. This maintains the fast cavalry ability and enables my mages to move around the battlefield within a unit that will not panic.

  6. Week 12; One slice of Cow or two?

    It has spent some time on the back burner, but at long last the Varghulf is complete. Apologies to goblin1980 for obviously ripping off his idea, but it looked so nice that I wanted to have a go...



    This is the first time I have tried to create anything imaginative with GWs water effects and I found it a lot easier than I thought it would be. The blood / gore effect was created by wrapping two small lengths of fuse wire around the painted claw so that ...
  7. Week 11: Creaky old bones


    Another week and another pile of old bones;



    I have elected to construct a number of these chaps in pairs of two to help add or remove them from the unit.



    I am aware that there is no logic in the rest of this paragraph, but here goes. I couldn't give the skeletons a wind instrument because I couldn't see how they could blow it without any lungs. Yes I know that they have no muscles to move their limbs and have no eyes to see with or ...
  8. Deathguard Dread

    I've begun painting on my dread. It's moving a long nicely
     
    In this pic the dread has been painted in the base colors, and washed once.
     

     
    After this I've begun workin on the left hand shoulder pad and "shoulder. Below you can see the result.
     

     

     

     
    I've also begun working on the base. It's the first "mayor" basing I've ever undertaken. Mayor to me being anything ...

  9. Space wolf terminator - WIP

    Letelly, most of my minies stays in WIP state for ages. There is a stimul to finish this one though for it is sort of a commission. Originally this mini was concieved as a lone wolf. Coincidentally, at the time I was reading some 40K book that included detailed description of the Space Wolf 13th company. The idea of fighting for 10000 years in extremely unsanitary conditions sounded so appealing that I decided to try it out, or rather to try to paint it.

     
  10. Week 10: Give the dog a bone

    The end of week 10 sees the end of the assembly and painting of the Chaos warhounds (at last). The army list I'm working too only requires 17 warhounds, but they come in boxes of 10 so it seemed daft not to paint all 20. The thought of three poor lonely unassembled puppies was too much for me to bear.

    After listening to comments and advice I have elected to give the dog a bone, and an arm to one lucky pup. It adds to the character and helps to distinguish between figures. I have ...
