I recently acquired a copy of the 2001 version of Chainmail, a re-launched simplification of an old Gary Gygax game, featuring metal miniatures.While it will probably be a while before I assemble and paint these, I want to document what they looked like before I put them together. That way, at least I’ll have a way to remember how pure they were before I screwed it all up.
Today I return to an old behemoth that has been sitting on the shelf for far too long. I said I was not going to leave him looking like he got taken over by some radioactive green entity, and I am about to remedy that.
The Lizardmen have been happily sitting (standing?) in their new bases for a while now, and it’s about time I show them some love by touching up the mechanical, soulless factory paint job.
I’ve been on the lookout for anything that may fit the draconic theme in my campaign, and I had a few Lizardman miniatures lying around. These come prepainted (as do all other Mage Knight minis I own) and have their own, huge base, but… they did not look quite right at the table, so I set upon the task of rebasing them, so they could join the ranks of the scaly baddies at the table.
The campaign called for a Stirge encounter in a damp, bat-infested cave. Only thing is, I have next to nothing to represent the blood-sucking, flying annoyance that is a Stirge, so I decided to put something together. Afterall, how hard can it be to build a giant mosquito tick?
I needed four or five miniatures to represent Violet Fungi in the campaign I’m running. As I did not find anything suitable amidst my collection of miniatures, I decided I’d make some myself. Afterall, how hard could it be to make mushrooms?
