Crowdfunding Spotlight: Pantheon of Chaos (Chapter 2), 28mm Old Skool Chaos Miniatures

15 Jun

Ok, my apologies for missing yesterday’s post in this “post a day” month, but things were out of my control. I’ll make up for that today with two posts, the first being this really great looking retro “Realm of Chaos” inspired KS.

For those of you old enough to remember GW’s old “Realm of Chaos” stuff from the 80’s & early 90’s, these are very much of their ilk, a perfect throwback to the glory days of all things Oldhammer.

There are some cracking miniatures up for grabs here in this campaign, the picture above just shows a small selection of what’s available, so you’ll need to check out the project page for details of more chaos loveliness they are offering! What I really like is that the style is spot on, and apes the presentation style from things like the old White Dwarf ads and publications of that era.

Get over to the page and check this project out, seriously! There are some beautiful stuff here, and if you are serious about a chaos army for your own games, there will be lots here to tempt you into owning some of these fantastic minis!!

Troll Tribe: Old School Grenadier War Troll.

5 Feb

DSCF3806

I’ve been turning my hand back to painting up stuff from my lead pile of late, and thought it was about time to start up another unit. Since this old Fantasy Warriors Troll was already undercoated and pre prepared, I thought I might as well get around to it. My trolls are a mixed bunch, but I sort of like the random mix of styles they are made up from. I think he’s missing a shield, but don’t think he needs one to be honest, since none of my others have them either.

This time I’ve opted for a purple skin tone, pale tones not heavy deep purples, topped with a mop of green scraggly hair. Sort of like “The Joker” colours I thought after they had gone on, but at least this next unit will contrast with my other lot (they are quite bright blue) and since I have a set of what I think will have to be stone trolls in grey, the tones in this unit will match up in similar shades.

You’ll also notice that these lot are going to have tattoos, something the others don’t (but my giant does) so again, there will be a tie into the rest. of course I’ve got my own sculpt two headed troll leader to go with him next, and two quite nice forest trolls from CP models. I even have a smaller metal two headed troll to act as the leaders son, but when I got it, it really was subpar compared to the rest, and a little too small to fit, but I might end up adapting him somewhat before he gets into the tribe! My son has a nice big plastic D&D troll out of the drizzt boardgame, so I might have to make him an offer and add it to my boyos. I had this idea a long time ago to create two sides to fight in a giant wars type setting for a game, one side trolls, the other giants, so that’s where I’m heading with this. (just have one giant so far..)

Next troll up will be the ettin leader, which I just need to add a weapon, not sure what exactly, but I think I have a big sword in my spares box that’ll fit.

Back later with more painted bits….
