Bird-brains & Devil-dogs

” With your heart beating in your ears and your breath ragged in your lungs, you flee for your life. The distant hills echo with the howls of beasts and you know that they have your scent. Doom comes on necrotic paws and you realise that you cannot out-run the relentless advance of death itself.Continue reading “Bird-brains & Devil-dogs”

Leader of the Pack

The Sun shone pleasantly down upon the sylvan glade, bathing all in its warm rays. Insects buzzed lazily through the trees and a deer grazed upon the lush grasses. All was well with the world…. but such peaceful bliss simply couldn’t last. A pall of dust lay heavily upon the horizon to the South, and inContinue reading “Leader of the Pack”


From the sylvan depths come insectile susurrations, many eyes wink in and out of existence, glowing with a malignant intelligence. A sudden skittering movement and emerald fronds rustle with the passage of some unseen creature.. Suddenly, with blinding speed, the undergrowth explodes into life as giant arachnids burst forth. Upon their backs, giving voice to high-pitchedContinue reading “Arachnophobia”

Dust & Bones

Two figures walk through the blazing midday sun, ignoring the oppresive heat as they move amid the desert dunes with tireless conviction. The first figure strides with purpose, planting her staff into the sand with each step she takes. The other sits, stoop-backed, on its wiry mount… After weeks of unceasing trek, ruined statues andContinue reading “Dust & Bones”

The Necrotic Tome p.7 – Ancients

I have acquired some new miniatures for my Grande Armée de la Mort, and having plenty of time on my hands I have managed to paint them up. These minis were made by Rackham Miniatures and are beautifully sculpted with lots of elaborate details. The Wraith floats through the shadows, brandishing a wicked blade with which to reap the wretchedContinue reading “The Necrotic Tome p.7 – Ancients”

Gathering the Clans

My fantasy campaign with Graham has been hotting up with our second battle taking place this week. The first scenario saw King Graham Ironfoot’s Dwarves holding the Hellmouth Pass against an outnumbering horde of undead minions, funneling them in to a bottle-neck and destroying them completely. In the second confrontation he sent out word to call allContinue reading “Gathering the Clans”

Necrotic Tome pt.6 – Calling the Muster

I have been beavering away at the hobby bench these past couple of weeks adding new troops to my Grande Armée de la Mort. The first addition is this War Sphinx with howdah which will count as a heavy chariot in God of Battles. As well as this monster I have been doing some convertingContinue reading “Necrotic Tome pt.6 – Calling the Muster”

The only good Dwarf is a Dead Dwarf!

  Over the last couple of weeks, my good friend Graham and I have been locking heads in the realms of fantasy with God of Battles by Jake Thornton. In our previous battle, my Undead horde destroyed Graham’s Dwarves in a glorious orgy of blood, so we decided this time to do a follow-on scenario. We used scenario two from theContinue reading “The only good Dwarf is a Dead Dwarf!”

Necrotic Tome pt.5 – Dressed to Impress

With a welcome four days off over the Easter weekend I have hit the ground running by painting the final miniature for my Undead army, the Ghoul Queen herself… This concludes the first stage of the army (24 points) and very proud of it I am too! I look forward to seeing them hit the battlefield sometime soon,Continue reading “Necrotic Tome pt.5 – Dressed to Impress”

Necrotic Tome pt.4: Back from the (Un)Dead

A series of unfortunate events have kept me away from blogging over the course of the last couple of weeks, however what doesn’t kill me can only make me stronger! which leads me nicely on to the subject of this post… I have at least been steadily working through my ‘Grande Armée de la Mort’Continue reading “Necrotic Tome pt.4: Back from the (Un)Dead”
