Beware the Shaggoth!

At the border of the manling domain of Sylea, where the verdant land is pierced by the jagged peaks of the Dracos Tooth mountain range, the gateway to the Dead Lands. Many foul beasts make their lair within the mountains, but none are more abhorrent than the loathsome Shaggoth! This abberation is said to be partContinue reading “Beware the Shaggoth!”

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”

Embarking on an Epic Space Crusade

The ever dastardly Graham and I play many different games set in the world of Warhammer 40k, and for someone as tactically challenged as myself, simply keeping a tally of wins and losses holds little interest. Instead, we combine the multitude of different games into a flowing narrative campaign. This stops things from getting stale and letsContinue reading “Embarking on an Epic Space Crusade”

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”

Uncharted Shores

I have long adored Napoleonic war gaming, but could never bring myself to buy and paint the hordes of troops needed to play it at the grand scale. I also have several friends who have dedicated many, many hours to this end, including my particular friend, the esteemed Mr. Pancake Payne who’s Napoleonic forces are aContinue reading “Uncharted Shores”

Come into the Garden…

“There lies an island in the midst of the Mediterranean sea, upon which, resides a gardener of much renown. She dwells alone, gliding effortlessly through the labyrinthine topiary borders and flower beds, tending to her beloved flora with the utmost dedication…  Dotted about, here and there, stand a plethora of stone statues. These masonic effigiesContinue reading “Come into the Garden…”

Hoof & Claw

My birthday in September saw me gain some new additions for my Of Myth & Legend project which I took great enjoyment in painting. These miniatures are from Foundry Miniatures Greek mythology range. These three centaurs were a real joy to paint and were somewhat of an experimental process as I had never really painted horseContinue reading “Hoof & Claw”

A Place to Call Home

I have finally finished my proposed diorama, giving Boudi, Delphine and Sana a suitable place to stay on display. I mentioned, in my previous post, that I was deliberating whether to go for a terrarium style display and decided, after seeing fish bowls for £1.99 in the local home bargain shop, that I would do just that.Continue reading “A Place to Call Home”

Terrarium or not terrarium, that is the question

While I was conducting a Google image search, looking for inspiration for my diorama project, I happened upon these fascinating things called terrariums. A terrarium is a decorative, self-contained Ecosystem kept in a glass receptacle which very often contain a miniature diorama such as these examples… Rather beautiful I think you will agree, but why am I postingContinue reading “Terrarium or not terrarium, that is the question”

Windswept & Interesting

From the hinterlands of the North comes the last of my trio of female adventures, the hardy and dependable Sana. With my intrepid heroines given a lick of paint and ready to display, all that is needed now is a diorama in which they can congregate, something I hope to get on with once I’mContinue reading “Windswept & Interesting”
