more Frostgrave creatures....

Reaper Miniatures - Banshee, Liche and Ghost...

Northstar Miniatures - Snow Gorilla

Northstar Miniatures - Zombie Snow Troll

I had a disaster with the matt varnish on these, not sure if I didn't shake the can enough, put too thick a layer on, it was too damp outside... or too cold?? But when it dried it wasn't clear... and filled in a lot of the shaded areas with an opaque milky look. I couldn't face stripping them off and starting again, so I re-shaded and re-highlighted them in a rescue attempt. I think they turned out ok, but not as good as they looked before the disaster.

Wigan Prisma Pics....

a series of black and white photos I took on a family walk in Wigan last week and then ran through the "Prisma" app on my phone for fun. I like how they turned out...

WARMASTER - Undead Army

Here's a project I've been working on steadily for about a year.

I was reading through an old copy from the year 2000 of White Dwarf (issue 243) and it featured the all new (at the time) WARMASTER epic scale (10mm) fantasy battle game... designed by Rick Priestly. The game is still highly regarded, but unfortunately no longer supported by Games Workshop. The original models can go for very high prices on ebay.... however the rules are available for free online... there is a growing active international Warmaster community, and there are a good handful of miniature companies that offer alternative 10 and 12mm fantasy miniatures at reasonable prices.

My interest peaked, I was lucky to get an original unpainted lot of Warmaster undead miniatures from ebay at a reasonable price. Not enough to make a full army, but with a bit of research I found that KALISTRA do a nice range of 12mm undead, so I bulked out the army with miniatures from them, and they also do the 20x40mm plastic bases which didn't come with my ebay win.
