Dock workers are finished (except for bases). These are from the Astro Polis II kickstarter and they have some insane levels of detail. Hopefully these will work well for NPCs for a few friend’s tables until I can get my ZM table together.
I’m going to a CK Studios painting class this weekend (102 painting an irk bust) so I’ll have some pictures of that next. But I don’t know which of the primed marines will be first.

Now for something completely different, part two. My second Western set was labelled simply 'Goth Cowboys'. It was hard fighting the temptation to just paint them as Fields of the Nephilim, especially as a mini Carl McCoy seems to be present, but that top hat was screaming authority, and gave the trio the air of a sinister hustler and his two minders. Therefore allow me to introduce the Reverend Strange and his Men of Renown #gothcowboys #western #miniatures #narrativegaming #wargames
Mice & Mystics is a charming little game. The boards are gorgeous and the minis wonderfully sculpted!
The game mechanics can leave some things to be desired for more experienced gamers but seeing as the game is created for families and children the gameplay is appropriate.
I’ve found the the game shines when a good Game Master or Storyteller foregoes playing a mouse and takes the lead on the story book elements and running the minions. This way the story is brought to life moment by moment.
What do you all think of Mice & Mystics?
Now for something completely different part one. Having gotten into a conversation about Games Workshop's old historical rules sets with my friendly local indie store owner, Legends of the Old West in particular, he pressed a couple of blister packs of unofficially recognisable gunslingers on me. The first, looking remarkably like the title characters from one of my favourite movies, was a pleasure to paint, which for 28mm metal was a real surprise... #good #bad #ugly #oldwest #miniatures #narrativegaming #wargames
Some better pics of my rodent knight. I might do some freehand on the scrolls later, we'll see. More pics of his comrades to come, as I finish painting them. Really happy how my silly idea turned out 😊
Scroll down for fluff!
Franken Plagueclaw was the youngest of his 17 siblings. Little Franken soon discovered though that he was unlike the other Skaven. Killing, maiming and scheming didn’t interest him, nor did he hear the Great Horned Rat’s calling or displayed a craving for Warpstone.
One day on a routine raid of a nearby human settlement he found a curious old book in the clutches of a dead child. The book depicted wondrous tales in a faraway land, of just warriors who defended the poor and downtrodden, armed with sharp rapiers and sharper wits and dressed in elegant hats adorned with feathers. He began to dream of a different life, one dedicated to justice and fashionable attires. Against all odds he found a few likeminded young Skaven and in the cover of a late august night they left the hive city.
Now years later he’s known as Duc Francois Brightclaw, swordsman extraordinaire and the self-appointed ruler of the Duchy of Rat'aTouillé. His companions are known as the Merry Muskrateers and together they fight for justice and enjoy the finer thinks in life, especially good wine and cheese. Rat'aTouillé. doesn't actually exist yet, but it is the dream of these brave rats to one day raise enough coin to purchase a few acres of land and a wineyard and settle down for good. Until then they are knights for hire for the highest bidder – as long as the cause is just!

Well it is fairly likely I’ll be laid off this week so as a prep for having a bunch of free time randomly dropped in my lap (as I wait for phone calls and emails) I’ve been cleaning and priming a HUGE batch of miniatures. So I’ve got 2-3 kickstarters worth of NPCs primed, 8 dreadnoughts, the ZM boarding team from earlier, and batches of marines. I’m planning on “quick” painting the Gangs of Rome NPCs with airbrushes washes, as a test for my future Cobra Militia.
Und so sieht das dann aus wenn man nicht nur rumpimmelt sondern auch mal was schreibt. Sollte man vielleicht öfter machen.

1/2 The Children of Lug. On the mining world of Namaste those who toil in the Dust mines do not toil for long. Yet the toxic silicate mines are vital to the Imperium, the struggle to control them fierce and the need for reliable enforcers imperative. The clan of the Children of Lug, with their stimm-bloated physiques, endure longer than most within the Dust clouds, but prolonged exposure has cost them their sanity, and possibly their humanity. Yet while their insane brutality is directed at the Dust Barons enemies the Children will remain in their employ #inq28 #necromunda #narrativegaming #gamesworkshop #paintingwarhammer #citadel #kitbash
Monday night skirmish and our narrative genestealer cult campaign abandons the desperate, close quarters carnage of Space Hulk for the equally desperate, close quarters carnage of Necromunda. It's a century after the cult made planetfall on the world of Namaste and the Church of the Crawling King has insinuated itself into the underbelly of this vital mining planet. Infuriated by its clandestine attempts to carve out a piece of the local Dust trade, the Namastean Barons launch a vicious gang assault against the Church's most prominent demagogue. After a brutal exchange the Churchman lies dashed upon the ground and the Barons raise a glass to their cunning and power. They have no idea of the Church's true nature. They have no idea what they've woken #narrativegaming #necromunda #gamesworkshop #citadel #paintingwarhammer #playingwarhammer #genestealercult
With their captain and voidsmen slaughtered, their vessel clamped in dock, and the volunteers sent to free it not responding to vox hails, the remaining crew, together with their Astropath, abandon ship. Auspex scans show a functioning escape pod within the Hulk but the manual release is on the level above... and the motion sensors have picked up movement... Another fantastically tense game of Space Hulk with @thexlc.co.uk_chris
sees a single survivor make it out Ripley-style, and the genestealer cult make it planetside in their stolen vessel; time for some Necromunda #gamesworkshop #citadel #spacehulk #warhammer40k #kitbash #narrativegaming #paintingwarhammer #terminatorswhatterminators
In space, only the Emperor hears your screams... Tonight me and @thexlc.co.uk_chris
kicked off a Genestealer Cult narrative campaign with the gribbly beasts trying to get planetside by luring in and hijacking an unsuspecting Imperial freighter. Casting 'ordinary' workers in the place of Terminators gives Space Hulk a nicely cinematic feel; instead of grumbling about paper thin Termie armour you celebrate every time someone beats the odds to take out a Genestealer with no more than a power pick and a vent cover shield. The crew planted two of the three charges they needed to free their vessel before being separated and slaughtered. Now their surviving companion's only hope is to reach the escape pods before they're run down and killed. Tune in next week to see if they make it... #gamesworkshop #citadel #kitbash #spacehulk #genestealers #citizensoftheimperium #wip #finishedfornextweekhonest #narrativegaming
