The Other One's Vault of the Undead

One of the two new units for the Undead in the Clash of Kings 2018 Edition is a ‘Deathpack’; “A writhing mass of teeth, claws and bone, the Deathpack is a collection of horrific undead beasts herded into battle by a handler…” I immediately liked the sound of this and between a kickstarter a friend […]

Bird with a Brush

The 12 Days of Reaper figure for December 8 is this charming little dragon and his hoard of presents. This is the first of the holiday dragons that I had the opportunity to paint a few years back, and I just adore him. I think gifts are a perfect thing to hoard, as they represent […]

Ice Axe Miniatures

It’s been about a month or two since my last paintlog, and if I had to give November a theme, it would be conversions and kitbashes. Possibly ill-conceived and overly-ambitious conversions and kitbashing, but conversions and kitbashing nonetheless. Greylord Outriders These are models that have been sitting on the shelf of shame for at least […]

Bird with a Brush

Reaper Miniatures has always gone in for holidays in a big way, which is probably why frantic deadline painting has now become one of the ways I celebrate Hallowe’en and Christmas. :-> So to help me get more in the holiday spirit, I’m going to share some pictures of the figures I’ve painted, and some […]

The Buffalo Bunker

Hey everyone, welcome to our blog! Myself and Kevin decided to start this up as a place to put some helpful tutorials, chronicle our narrative games, and have a gallery to post some of the models we’ve painted (for both ourselves and clients). We met up on Twitter and after realizing that we had a […]

Stay Calm and Keep Playing Overwatch

Tuesday, live on all three platforms, and players that have not attempted out him are getting a flavor of Hammond’s mighty mech. Be wary of flanking characters such as Reaper and Tracer. Bastion isn’t the squishiest Overwatch character, but he will die rapidly against foes that are attacking. Beginner players that wish to obtain a […]

Hobby Samurai

Most of my weekends in November turned out to be busy so I’m quite happy with how much hobby time I managed to squeeze in. There was some closure on a couple of the projects and there was a mix of smaller things scattered about. Not a bad month if I have to say so […]

If you have never visited this beloved city park, it is magical at the holidays! Anne and Fowler McCormick (grandson of John D. Rockefeller) began to assemble the vast […]

Atomic Floozy Adventures

Just finished a 28mm Sci-Fi figure – a Nomad Spectr Hacker from Corvus Belli.  It’s from their Infinity game, but it can be used in a lot of different games including the 5150 titles from Two Hour Wargames. She is a female figure.  One of the nice things about the Infinity line of figures is […]

The Vault

The ancient occult sciences retain their power to entrance us even in this age of science and skepticism. In contemporary stories, nailing a few elements of magical lore into the solid timber of realism can provide the essence of a fantasy plot.  From the most primitive tribes to the most sophisticated modern city, mankind believes […]

The Bovine Overlord

I recently attended my first ever Warmachine / Hordes (or WarmaHordes, or whatever… just Warmachine from now on) in Glasgow. Apparently this was the first Steamroller in Glasgow for something like five years, so it wasn’t only a first for me. I’ve got to admit that I was a little nervous for two reasons. Firstly, […]

My True Self

First off, let me apologise for not posting progress blogs and the other blog posts I had been planning to do in the past month.  I spent November fluctuating between fighting my depression and being focussed on my painting to the point where that’s pretty much all I’ve done.  I haven’t even been streaming much […]
