Shade Beast, Darkreach Monster

This one... sort of worked. I've named it Erebus for obvious reasons.

Burning a Nissan GT-R

Since reading Keith's No More Room In Hell after-action reports and checking out the awesome scenery he uses for his games, I've wanted to get a car to just... well, wreck, basically. I've read that 1/43 scale is best for 28mm minis, and with that in mind I picked one up from my local Dollar General.

Skull rock

As I said in a previous post, I've been watching a lot of scenery tutorials on YouTube recently and the other day one caught my eye in a kind of, "Hey, I could do that" way. So I gave it a shot.

Maggotcrown Ogre Juggernaut

Much like Razmir, I don't know what "Maggotcrown" means. Reaper does a range of minis with that term so I'm assuming it's a setting or faction in a game. Whatever it is, it suits this hulking mountain of metal to a tee. In light of his intimidating size and menacing skull head, I've named him Tim.

Neglected but Not Forgotten: Space Goblin Commando

I'm pretty sure I bought this little chap, who I've christened Globrik, at the same time I ordered Aina. He's definitely an impulse buy as I cannot imagine why I'd actually need a space goblin commando. I don't know if Reaper was going to bring out a line of these, but they did make a total of three: the commando, a mechanic and one in power armour.

Death Guard Traitor Terminator

I bought a two-pack of Traitor Terminators off Ebay just after getting my regular Termies. I never owned any of them back in the day because I painted and played Emperor-loving Ultramarines, but I always thought they were great figures and enjoyed seeing them on the old 'Eavy Metal pages of White Dwarf.

Giant Wererat

Amazon is responsible for this one by putting it in my "HEY YOU SHOULD TOTALLY BUY THIS" list. I've named him Clanger after a pet rat I had back in the early 2000s. The real Clanger was named after the best kids' TV show in the universe. Also, I started this mini back in late January and have been updating this post on and off until today, I apologise if it's a bit all over the place.

Neglected but Not Forgotten: Post Apocalyptic Hunter

Ann's Neglected but Not Forgotten challenge has really spurred me to finish up older minis. While going through one of the many boxes of crap I've acquired thanks to this hobby, I saw a small grey figure stuck between some 30mm bases and realised it was one of my zombie survivors.

DIY Door 2

Ystros guards the entrance to the crypt. He's pretty sure there's some kind of Slaanesh orgy going on inside, but he's been banished for admitting he doesn't like pink.

DIY Door

As much as I love my ruined arch, I have one major issue with it as a background for photos — namely the huge gap in the middle. Right now I can really only use it as a backdrop if I place the mini against the left or right sides, unless I want the bomb site that is my desk to ruin the effect. So today I had an idea. Why don't I make a door?

Neglected but Not Forgotten: Aina, Valkyrie

I originally bought the plastic Bones Aina at Brookhurst Hobbies in summer 2018. That turned out to be a mistake because when I took her out of her blister pack a month or two later, her sword resembled a banana, which I somehow didn't notice when I purchased her. I tried the usual hot water/ice water method but no luck. Into the Magical Box of Unloved Lead she went, and there she stays till this day.
