Anyway, progress is good on the Grimthorpe East set, with around 20+ building kits done or almost done. Some require a little adjustment before I carry on, but these are minor woes overall, and things are coming along nicely. The intention is to include around 50 buildings at least, plus accessories and stuff, enough to give you a good selection and variation for your builds, plus I'm trying to keep them as simple as possible to reduce build time.
So, more Nurgley Chaos goodness with this possible proxy unit of poxwalkers that I painted. Now, this lot were originally from CP Models (apart from the front model, which I'll address in a bit) and are from their sci-fi range and are intended to be B-Movie type plant creatures. (These models can be found here… Continue reading 40K Deathguard Army: Proxy Poxwalkers (Probably) : CP Models Plant Creatures.
So on goes my quest to get my 8th Edition 40K army finished, and this time it's my first unit of deathguard chaos cultists. These figures (of which so far consist of 12 models) come from CP Models in their Sci-fi Trench warfare range, and are a mix of both Brits & Germans. You can… Continue reading 40K 8th Ed Army: Deathguard: Chaos cultists: CP Models Sci-fi Trenchers.
So these spawn are from the board game The Others: 7 Sins from CMON, the Envy expansion, which I got for quite a good price on Ebay. I think it ended up working out at around just over a £1 each, and for the quality and size of the models is a pretty good deal.… Continue reading 40K 8th Ed. Deathguard Army: Chaos Spawn: Envy Demons (CMON)
As an alternative to the standard GW Chaos Spawn models for my Deathguard lot, I wanted some old skool weirdness and something that would be sticky and icky, with a Nurgle-esque vibe. Scibor has some lovely models from their Chaos Dwarves range, and I've been eyeing them up for ages. The price was a prohibitor,… Continue reading 40K 8th Ed: Deathguard Army: Chaos Spawn models part 1: Scibor Chaos Snails.
So I'm trying to get some kind of 8th edition 40k nurgle Deathguard army together, just to get back into the game (haven't played it since 4th edition) but I really wanted to use as much customised and independent companies stuff instead of GW's VERY expensive stuff. Don't get me wrong, I love their stuff,… Continue reading 40K 8th Ed: Deathguard Army: Custom Hellbrute W.I.P. 1
It might not surprise you that, here at the Grinning Skull, we like all things skeletal. So, it would be rude to not include these babies here in Crowdfunding Spotlight. These figures are brought to you by Skull & Crown, a name that's apt considering the subject! As you can see the inspired skeleton designs,… Continue reading Crowdfunding Spotlight: 28mm Renaissance Skeleton Army Miniatures Kickstarter

These are Pure Evil Miniatures officially licensed Fighting Fantasy Miniatures. Back in the 80's there existed a book series that ignited the imaginations of… Continue reading I want that F*%cking Miniature: Fighting Fantasy Miniatures from Pure Evil Miniatures.
