Miniature painting

Here are some photos of my miniature paintings. Miniatures have been a part of my life since the 1980’s when I bought my first set of Ral Partha’s 25mm figures and Games Workshop’s fantasy football game Blood Bowl. I got hooked. I went through many (yup… dozens) games and game systems and painted entire armies for games such as Target Games’ Chronopia and WarZone. Today I mostly play Warhammer 40K with a few dedicated friends. I’ve painted mostly 28mm/30mm miniatures and that is reflected on the few pictures I’ve posted here.

Warhammer 40K miniatures

Space Wolves faction

 

The True Revilers

This is a faction of my own design. It is supposed to be a  Chaos tainted splinter-group of the Space Marines faction Raven Guard and is played with their rules.

 

 

 

 

 

Tyranids

This is my biggest army in terms of both miniature models and points count (hovering at about 20.000 points. I’ve played with this faction since the 2nd edition of the game’s rules.

 

World Eaters

Just starting out this faction with a more serious intent on creating awesomeness. I’ve got a few painted up but not enough to field a decent painted up group.

Nurgle Daemons

Gaming Terrain – Papa Nurgle’s Land

This is a full-sized Warhammer 40K gaming terrain I built few years ago in just a few days of building frenzy. The original post is here.

 

 

Fantasy Flight Games’ The Descent Miniatures

My group of like-minded gentlemen eagerly adopted the game of Descent when the second edition surfaced years ago. The only reason it isn’t represented more in this section is that all the gaming time seem to go towards other games at the moment (like Pathfinder Adventure Card Game). But anyways … a few examples of my Descent miniatures.

The Cthulhu Wars Miniatures

While essentially a strategic, asymmetric area-control board game, the miniatures of the game are essential to the the theme of the game. And since the miniatures are quite nicely sculpted to begin with, they telepathically summon the need to paint them!

The first two I painted were Cthulhu himself and Shub-Niggurath both painted in 2016 or so after the game’s first edition hit retail shelves. Since then I’ve painted none until a new surge of interest in summer of 2019 resulted in painting more for the base game and some of the expansions.

Arkham Horror/Mansions of Madness Investigators

Fantasy Flight Games’ Arkham Horror board game is by far the best American -style board game I’ve ever played. It has provided countless hours of pure fun for over a decade. It helps to have a gaming group who also enjoys the game. Through another game – Mansions of Madness – I started painting the investigators of that game in order to just use them in games of Arkham Horror. So far so good …IMG_7437

Tanks!

While I have a boatload of the magnificently detailed Werner Klocke -sculpted 15mm fantasy miniatures, this single 15mm World War II British tank is the one whose picture was taken. I’ve yet to play the game although I have an entire gaming board almost finished. I figured that if this game doesn’t fly, I can always expand to Flames of War.
