New House and lots of Projects!

Phew, we can now call ourselves House Owners!

Moving into a house wasn’t as fast and easy as we thought! We had to move both our business and our apartment into an old house with lots of plumbing and electricity problems, that made it even harder for us to get our shop up and running again! And on top of all, both my husband and I were hit by a stomach flu for an entire week! So we had to have my parents come up and help ship orders…

And despite a failing heat source (it’s freezing), we are holding up and only missing tables for our work and paint stations! So in a few days I will be able to paint again! And Spring is just around the corner, so hopefully my paints will thaw! :-P

Creepy Basilisk!

I still have a few pictures left from before we moved out, so here is my version of the ForgeWorld Basilisk! I’ve changed my mind so many times with colours on this one, but I decided to go straight for the Monstrous Arcanum description/artwork.

I’m not deeply satisfied with the result, but he looks really cute none the less. Here is the Artwork I based him on:

I might add some more details on this guy at some point, but for now he sits in our vitrine all pretty :)

The Monstrous Dire Wolf of the Dark Emissary

I couldn’t wait getting this one up on the blog! This is the Monstrous Direwolf from our Nordland campaign! I already used Dire Wolf as description on another wolf, but this is so much bigger, so “monstrous” had to do :)

Monstrous Direwolf

The miniature is from Micro Arts Studio, but it looks like it’s no longer in production. Basicks picked up producing them, but seems like they closed down or something. Shame since the wolf is so cool. He will probably end up being a lone gigantic wolf. And he just died in our Nordland Campaign. Does that mean monstrous wolves are extinct?

He is mounted on a 50mm lipped round base from Scibor modified with extra slate for length extension (fancy expression for a fancy wolf) Here he is next to the other Direwolf and side by side with Direwolf and Lesser Wolves:

As you can see he is huge compared to the others. I can see now that it looks like a wolf family with mom, dad and “cubs”, so here is a picture of the whole “family” :-P

More about the Dark Emissary Here. The Wolf Pack, the Warg used as the “normal” Dire Wolf and the Windfall bases used, can be found in my shop at KingGames.dk. Every time I find a cool product or I paint and recommend a mini, I order it for the shop aswell. Sadly the biggest wolf is out of production :-/

Wolf Pack – Minions of the Dark Emissary

I already did a post about the Dire Wolf of the Dark Emissary and this here is the minor wolves we have used as minions and henchmen in our RPG sessions. The wolves are all made by Reaper Miniatures and a joy to paint.

Wolf Pack 2

The 3 wolves in the background is the Wolf Pack from Reaper  and the front champion wolf is actually the Leryn the pet of Adowyn from Pathfinder. I only needed the Adowyn as miniature for our Pathfinder Adventure Card Game. The bases are the Windfall 32mm bases from Kromlech.

Fenbeast! Proud and Terrifying Companion of The Dark Emissary!

About a month ago, I wrote a post about the Dark Emissary who is the villain of our Nordland campaign. In our campaign he is assisted by wolves and last week we defeated his monstrous and enormous Dire Wolf. Sure wasn’t easy and we ended up pretty beaten, but alive! Poor Viktor (our Bright Wizard) had received strange tokens every time he did something savage, which he happens to do a lot! And during the Dire Wolf fight, each token left him with Disease points, Stress and lots of Wounds. Let’s just say he went home pretty messed up! He will need some time to recover that’s for sure!

Since the original Dark Emissary from the Albion campaigns (old Games Workshop book) is assisted by a fenbeast, we thought it was fitting for him to have one. The GW one is quite small and not as frightful as we wanted him to be, so we bought the Mórannach, Beast of Cill Chonn Bog from Mierce Miniatures (they have a thing with weird names).

Here is the Fenbeast in its glory – attached to a scratchbuilt 75mm base.

Here is another shot of the Fenbeast alongside his commander The Dark Emissary as shown on the artwork!

 

We can only hope that we won’t encounter this beast, but somehow I think our GM has already planned another sinister plan masterminded by the emissary!

The Dire Wolf of the Dark Emissary

As I wrote in a previous post, the Dark Emissary has returned and this time with an army of wolves at his disposal. This here is the Dire Wolf from Reaper (metal version) and is the second largest wolf in his army (like it wasn’t big enough already!)

This is a very cool miniature and our encounters with the wolves have been very exciting (really fast monsters) I have another 3 smaller wolves painted with several more in progress and a very large wolf, which needs its own post!

The base is an interesting choice from Kromlech and is part of their Windfall line. You can find them here.

Stay tuned for more frightening wolves!
