Stickas

Goblins Stickas, I've got a big bunch of them, from Citadel, Marauder, Heartbreaker...








...And from Greenskin Wars, producing new miniatures, most of the range is sculpted by Kev Adams, as you already know surely. There's a new project going on Kickstarter :

It's just, a little CRUSH

Another masterpiece from the Goblin Master, the Skull Crusher ! It is a very powerful and fearsome war machine, the true treasure of the Broken Nose Tribe.





Once again, I did some pretty simple bases, maybe I'll add some bushes later.




I tried to stick to the original scheme for the trebuchet, with worn metal and aging wood. Really fun to paint, with all those twisted faces. Easy to imagine them talking to the crew !

Spit out the lead

One of my favorites, the iconic Lead Belcher ! An emblematic weapon of the infamous broken nose tribe.
Had a great time painting this great machine and the crew.





The original version, designed and painted by Kevin Adams, is a true piece of art :

More Dwarves

Another part of my army, dwarves with crossbows. And (again) creepy bases.



Pictures taken using my first purchase of the year, a foldable and cheap light box. Very useful.

Old stuff : Dwarves !

Now, let's go back to dwarves. Painted some years ago, Bugman's rangers and miners.



As you can see, their bases should be redone. Maybe there will be an operation "pimp my dwarves" for 2018 :)











Miners, more recent. Bases are ok !





The boss, from the famous Dwarf Lords of legend box




I've got more dwarves, painted many, many years ago. They need an upgrade !

Green and mean

Ok, let’s start with some (not so freshly) painted hobgoblins from the well known C36 serie.
I really like them, they look like they’re from a « you are the hero » book !







A hobhound and his master.




I must take pictures of the regiment (20 guys). Soon !
