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.
40K 8th Ed. Deathguard Army: Chaos Spawn: Envy Demons (CMON)
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.

40K 8th Ed: Deathguard Army: Chaos Spawn models part 1: Scibor Chaos Snails.
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.
40K 8th Ed: Deathguard Army: Custom Hellbrute W.I.P. 1
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
Rogue Stars: Let the ideas start to flow!
So, with Osprey's Rogue Stars ( Rogue Stars: Skirmish Wargaming in a Science Fiction Underworld (Osprey Wargames) ) winging its way to me through the post (yes, I succumbed to it in the end, the temptation was far too great!) I really look forward to getting it so I can have a really good read to… Continue reading Rogue Stars: Let the ideas start to flow!
Osprey’s Rogue Stars: Is it any good? Give me your recommendations?
So, been browsing about, and I've noticed Rogue Stars: Skirmish Wargaming in a Science Fiction Underworld (Osprey Wargames), which has caught my eye with a prospect of getting it. I absolutely know jack s**t about it, only that it seems like an attempt at a mini skirmish game attempt from Osprey to get some of… Continue reading Osprey’s Rogue Stars: Is it any good?

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Tikki Trolls Tribe Miniatures Mortal Arrow Kickstarter
I just have to point you to these unique troll miniatures from Mortal Marrow Miniatures. Given a Tiki theme to differate them from the normal trollish miniature offerings that are out there, a full tribe, if not a full war horde of these can be put together with all the individual options available here. I am an avid… Continue reading Crowdfunding Spotlight: Tikki Trolls Tribe Miniatures Mortal Arrow Kickstarter
Crowdfunding Spotlight: Pantheon of Chaos (Chapter 2), 28mm Old Skool Chaos Miniatures
Ok, my apologies for missing yesterday's post in this "post a day" month, but things were out of my control. I'll make up for that today with two posts, the first being this really great looking retro "Realm of Chaos" inspired KS. For those of you old enough to remember GW's old "Realm of Chaos" stuff… Continue reading Crowdfunding Spotlight: Pantheon of Chaos (Chapter 2), 28mm Old Skool Chaos Miniatures
Crowdfunding Spotlight: 28mm Renaissance Skeleton Army Miniatures Kickstarter
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
