Shadows of Brimstone... more paint jobs...

I've been working on painting a bunch of Shadows of Brimstone related stuff... some official miniatures, some alternative models... and some just for fun...
Dark Stone Brutes

Some alternative Nuns as heroes.
The nun with gun is from Reaper Minis... the others are from Conquest Games.

Some alternative zombies / spectres (from Black Scorpion)

Tentacles (2 sets)

Preacher (Black Scorpion)...
no rules for horses in the game, so this one's just for fun.

Targa Pylons

Hungry Dead

Bandits. These are not very good minis, they come with the Frontier town expansion.
They seem over-sized compared to the other figures. Not much detail on them either.
I didn't enjoy painting them very much.

First Frostgrave Warband.... Green skins!

I like Orcs. I had a big Goblinoid Warhammer army as a teenager (all given away to a neighbor's son by my mother when I left home)... so for my first Frostgrave warband I thought I'd relive my youth and go for a band of gobbos! An orc shaman (witch) and his goblin apprentice... plus a selection of orcs and goblins with various weapons, and a wolf (as an animal companion option).

I snagged them all off ebay towards the end of last year... and I finally finished painting them. They were fun to paint!

Frostgrave Treasure Tokens

These are all the official Frostgrave treasure tokens... plus one I made myself from an extra Super Dungeon Explore chest with a Games Workshop crow sitting on it!

Frostgrave Scenery....

I've steadily been working on some scenery for FROSTGRAVE... I used mainly blue foam scored with a ballpoint pen... and painted it with grey emulsion and highlighted with a mix of grey and acrylic white paint....

The mat is from Deepcut studios. Fountain from "Blotz".

Skulls from a seaside souvenir shop in Scarborough... Barrels from "Renedra"

Wedding cake plastic columns ... plinth from "Amera"

Wizard circles from "Blotz" on pizza packaging stones...

Wooden walkways made from broken wooden fruit boxes - painted with acrylics.
Broken ladders from "Blotz"

15mm Octopoid Cultist summoning attack squad with Tentacle Beastie

(Winged tentacle beast - from Reaper minis)

(Octopoids from

(Cthuloid cultists from Khurasan miniatures)

(Re-purposed Ion Age Vehicles)

This is my latest army idea for GRUNTZ. I was given the Cthulhu figure at Xmas from our local boardgames club "secret santa" event... I thought It would go well with the Khurasan Cultists and Octopoid dudes from I already had... and I liked the look of the mono-bikes and weird tank sphere from Ion Age - The Cultists came with extra heads, so I swapped them on the bikes and tank. I would have liked to sculpt some flapping cloaks onto the bikers - but I wasn't confident enough  with my modelling skills for that... but I think they turned out ok...

Shadows of Brimstone... Heroes and lava dudes...

I thought I'd tackle the Shadows of Brimstone Heroes first, before the monsters... they've taken a while, the lighting in our kitchen is really bad, so I can only really sit down and do a bit of painting when I get a bit of time during daylight hours. I'm pleased with how they've turned out anyhow...
I sliced off the lady gunslinger's face when I was cutting her off the sprue... I glued it back on in an unsatisfactory manner... doesn't look too bad now she's painted...

Lava Men from the Caverns of Cyndar... These were fun to paint!

The following figures are all from the Black Scorpion Miniatures "Tombstone" line...I bought them for extra characters -  They're resin, and much better quality than the Shadows of Brimstone models...

This guy is my favourite!

Now the only figure I'm missing is a Nun!

I'm returning to 15mm Sci-fi for my next painting project.... and then on to the Shadows of Brimstone monsters...
