Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  A better blog host would have had a nice Solomon Kane figure painted up.  Perhaps a cornucopia of fields and gardens can make up for it? It’s late autumn, just after the crops are in and the table fully dressed.  The crops are just MDF covered in...

Bringing Out More Dead

My tombs were heavy on the physical dread and light on the spiritual dread, so I fixed that with a little help from Splintered Light.  Their ghostly packs sell packaged in numbers suitable for big battle games rather than skirmishes.  So I added a chunk of lead to my never-to-be...

A Giant Update

Light on the texts, but heavy on the heavies, here’s how Splintered Light’s hill giants stack up against a typical (Ral Partha Europe) figure. I like this size.  Big enough to be a threat, but not comically so.  And the animal skin and skull necklace, and the weird proportionality...

Devil Dogs!

Just in time for Halloween, here’s a pack of great big Devil Dogs from Splintered Light miniatures.  They are listed as Dire Wolves, but I decided to give them a considerably more demonic cast....

Owlbears!

Having fun painting up a few more critters for the tabletop.  Here’s a few fun owlbears for your dining and dancing pleasure.  If you ever wanted to know how big Splintered Light’s owlbears are, here’s your chance to find out....

Game Time – King of the Hill

With the new and improved 15mm fantasy table largely completed, it’s time to break out the miniatures!  With a little help from my lovely assistant, we threw together a small force of seven human defenders trying to keep an ogre and his goblins out of town.  The ogre wanted...

All Together Now

Time for a table reveal!  Now that the basics of my fantasy table are done, we can see what the whole thing looks like when put together.  Let’s start with a cluttered town setting. Downright bucolic, ain’t it? The kind of streets ready to run red with blood. Nothing...

Completed Housing Development

My big box of fantasy grows ever larger.  Because of the recent additions, I found it expedient to streamline all of my terrain boxes.  The collection now includes one box of general ground terrain (drop cloth, woods, roads, streams, etc.), one box of sci-fi specific terrain (billboards, buildings, urban...

Housing Development

I don’t know about this. In an effort to save some money, I bought resin houses for my fantasy villages that came in six flat pieces.  The guilty manufacturer shall not be named – they are likely a hobby outfit doing this in their spare time, so you’ll have...

The Tower of Skratch-Bi’ilt

Full confession:  I’ve spent a lot more money than usual on wargame terrain lately.  My side gig paid off, and I’ve dumped a lot of the extra dough into terrain that I don’t have time to build.  Plus, it was my birthday.  You’re going to start seeing a lot...
