More Eeeeevil

Chaos Space Marine
32 mm

One of two Chaos Space Marines I assembled with stuff I dug out of the Kitchener game store's "bitz box" of spare mini parts. He cost $1.50 total (plus tax).

Tiger, tiger, burning bright... (and Cthulhu)

Tiger 1E Tank
70 mm long

I painted up a Tiger tank for my brother's German army. What a beast, probably the most dangerous tank of WW2. Named "Lucil", probably after the tank commander's girlfriend (well, actually I named it after the musician Lederhosen Lucil).


Added some more colour to Great Cthulhu. Pink and green are not easy to use together, they just feel wrong. Which is why I'm using them together on this guy :D

Cthulhu Update

Well I got the colour I wanted:

Basecoated with "Rotting Flesh" (pale greenish grey) and washed with green/black for that vile gelatinous look. This mini has a bounty of fine surface detail, I want to use subtle coloured washes to differentiate some of the swirls etc. around his skin.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

28 mm

All done, a quick and fun paint job.

65 mm

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

"The Thing of the idols, the green, sticky spawn of the stars, had awaked to claim his own. The stars were right again, and what an age-old cult had failed to do by design, a band of innocent sailors had done by accident. After vigintillions of years great Cthulhu was loose again, and ravening for delight."
- H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu

Grr Argh!

Just a little something I'm working on... A mummy from the 80's Citadel board game "Curse of the Mummy's Tomb". He was supposed to have a cat... >:(

Dwarf - finished

Dwarf Second-Storey Man

OK, he's finished now. This guy was a lot of fun, he's a really cool character with all his thievin' equipment and aviator-esque goggles and the nifty rooftop base. Definitely a little different from my usual subjects.

Larcenous Intent

I got this guy in December, but I haven't really worked on him much until this week. I quite enjoy painting with earth tones, they can be so warm and varied, not "just brown". This paint job uses five different brown hues as well as dark green for the trousers.
