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
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
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
So, it's been ages since I've posted a Crowdfunding Spotlight article here, so without further a do, I want to draw your attention to these interesting little fellers. Old School Miniatures have a campaign running for these 28mm Alpine Gnomes, which I have to say, have a distinctly Oldhammer feel like some thing from… Continue reading Crowdfunding Spotlight: 28mm Alpine Gnomes from Old School Miniatures on Kickstarter
So the old Warhammer is gone. Replaced by GW's latest brainfart, Age of Sigmar. As an oldhammer player and veteran since 2nd Edition WFB, I'm not sure how to take it. Of course, this effects nothing in terms of playing WFB, I'll still be able to play, but this new direction GW has taken, leaves… Continue reading GW’s Age of Sigmar. Should I give a sh*t about it?
Ok, you're going to have to forgive my net connection, it's not great at the best of times, but like I have told you before, I promised to show you some stuff I have been working on. This is a personal WIP for my WFB orc and gobbo army, mainly my troll mob. I must… Continue reading Mini Sculpting: 28mm Ettin/2 headed troll; Fnar-frag the two faced!
As you know, I love the strange and off the wall stuff, and I'm pretty surprised this one slipped past me entirely! Myconids are a race of Mushroom humanoid from the glory days of gaming, and one of my favourite fantasy races. There are a few good examples in miniature form, but they are few… Continue reading Crowdfunding Spotlight: Fun-Gi’s to be with: Myconids from Gloom Glade on Indiegogo
[TMP] Fanticide: Blood Tree Warband Arrives. I spotted this on TMP and was quite impressed actually. A tree/plant based army has always interested me for something quirky to collect, and this seems to add more fuel to my fire! I didn't want yet another project/collection for this year (Hell, I'm still painting Orcs and gobbos… Continue reading Fanticide Blood Trees have given me ideas…
Agnostic Giraffe Miniatures! by Tyler and Andrew — Kickstarter. This is sure a strange one, a range of new miniatures by Agnostic Giraffe miniatures, it's left me a tad puzzled! Even the promo vid is strange, everything about this is just confusing! It seems that the intent of this KS is to get some of… Continue reading Stranger & stranger…Agnostic Giraffe Miniatures Kickstarter
