Kislev Kossars

A friend of mine is really into the Kislevites and wants to make an Empire in Flames warband for them for Mordheim.  The models are very hard to find as they are out of print, at least for a reasonable price.  I scored these for 47 dollars, half of what they usually go for on ebay, and now I am passing my savings on to him.

Orc Warboss

A friend of mine is massively into Total War: Warhammer, so I decided to treat him with an orc warlord to marshal his virtual armies.

Elf Ranger

Not much to report as life has been keeping me too busy to do much miniature work, but I did manage to paint up a model for a friend's D&D game.  Another Reaper Bones model, and with each one I paint I am getting more comfortable with the pvc.  It isn't as sharp as metal, but you can't really tell until you get close up.

Cthulhu Rising!

I finished my first big monster model in a very long time today, a Reaper Bones Cthulhu.  I am pretty happy with how it turned out, just the right amount of menacing emanating from the ancient one.

The Old Bridge Asylum

For the first time in a very long time I am starting a scenery project.  A good friend is going to visit in December and we have planned lots and lots of Mordheim, so I want to make the experience tip top and in so doing am finally trying to build a table centerpiece.  I am constructing a ruined insane asylum, based heavily on the Shalebridge Cradle from Thief: Deadly Shadows.  Right now I just have the basic framework up, but once that is completed and detail work begins I plan on adding a lot of stuff specific to the inmates from the game, and the kids who were there in the orphanage.  It's off to a strong start, not too big, but not small either.  Here is what I have so far after a couple weekends of work.

Sophie the Dragonslayer

I had some time to paint up another model for a friend, the Sophie Dragonslayer from the Reaper Bones II collection.  This was my fourth experience with the bones medium and I am getting better at working with it, but for small models the detail is not as sharp as metal or plastic.  Still, it's good enough for government work.

Golden Tom Rat Ogre Entry

I entered the Golden Tom competition at Tom's Boring Mordheim Forum, and even though I did not place or honorable mention I am quite pleased with the resulting model.  It was nice to paint something for the first time in a while, and it's good to have another model on the table.  So here is Big Hungry the Rat Ogre, who in his first game managed to drool forward 3" and nothing else!
