Quick and dirty terrain: Battlefield accessories

Greetings all,

Just a quick post this one, as it isn't terribly exciting! As a little palate cleanser/something to do whilst watching paint dry, I painted up some scatter terrain that has been sitting in my bits box for literally nearly 20 years. I don't host many games these days, but I would like to change that in the not too distant future, so terrain is a necessity.

These few little bits have been waiting nearly two decades, and the paint jobs took me about 10 minutes from start to finish. Nothing fancy (obviously), but they are finished, and that's all that matters!

Throne of Bones: Flesh Eater Courts for Warcry

Greetings all,

In my efforts to make this year a much better year than last year (an ongoing project I suspect), I've actually been doing some painting! It's pretty simple and dirty, but it is all progress.

Like many people, I've been bitten by the Warcry bug. It looks like an absolute blinder of a game, although I haven't actually had chance to play it yet, but I'll rectify that pretty soon. Part of the appeal for me was the low model count (always a win these days), particularly when I realised I would only have to paint three extra models to have a full Flesh Eater Courts list...

It just so happens that a few years ago I had painted a gaggle of ghouls to use in Frostgrave (and they've come out to play on many occasions since), and all I would need to add would be a few bigger gribblies to have a full warband for Warcry. So that's exactly what I did:

They weren't too stressful to paint, and they fit rather nicely with the rest of the warband, so I'm over the moon. I find that completing little projects like this spur me on to do more, particularly when time feels as limited as it does these days. Anyway, hope you like them. Till next time.
