New Edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (WFRP) 4th Edition and tribute!

Now that the 4th edition is on the doorstep (not literally, but close), and we had an amazing preview PDF of the whole thing, I thought it would be suitable with a little tribute miniature that my husband pieced together and sculpted, and which I painted.

The thing is based on artwork from the 4th edition rulebook. The artwork really captures the essence and gloomy atmosphere of the rpg, so we did our best to reflect that unto the mini.

Here is the artwork the scarecrow was based on:

WFRP Scarecrow

We tried to make it reflect the artwork as much as possible with what materials we had, and I think Nicki did a great job sculpting his first pumpkin!

I painted some black spots around the “head” to resemble the flies buzzing around the rotting pumpkin head and tried to make the body look as tattered as possible!

Here is a work in progress photo of the piece:

Some dryad arms were used aswell as a scarecrow body from Ristul’s, some goblin pikes, a wood elf sword, and a fenryll sign if i remember correctly!

All in all a very fun project and we really enjoyed the process!

A Larder Shelf fit for a king! (or anyone who enjoys food!)

Just thought I’d squeeze in this little gem I finished painting a little while ago! I’m really proud of this one and it looks amazing on the table. I’ve been trying to clean out my miniatures, and replace the standard pieces with highly detailed and converted versions, and this is one of them!

The shelf and broom are from Thomarillion, the flasks and barrel are from Fenryll, the pouch of plums (to the left of the shelf) and the package on top are from Tabletop-World. The baskets and letuce box on the bottom are from Ristuls Workshop, the middle boxes are from Fredericus Rex, and the pile of goods in the bottom and the sack on the left is from Baueda miniatures. So a lot of customizing and a whole lot of time included in this one. My husband picked out the parts and assembled this beauty and I painted it. It took much longer than anyone would expect, but it looks great in real life!

Food Supplies Terrain from Ristul’s Market

I’m a huge fan of Ristul’s Extraordinary Market and their unique and quirky minis (as I have mentioned before!) and I recently decided to paint their Food Supplies Terrain. The set looks really great and in my opinion, outshines the Tabletop World Grocery set, which looks great on the table and when setting up a quick market place, but the scale is more of 32-35mm than 25-28mm that I use with my miniatures. There is also lot of customization in Ristul’s since you can combine it with the Food Supplies Basing Kit, and make your own unique Market Stands :-)

Ristuls Groceries

It takes quite a lot of time to paint, but the result is beautiful! And I’m really honored that Radek from Ristul’s chose to use it as main product picture! And coincidentally their top seller :-D

I’m halfway through their Road Signs that are going to fit right into my Mordheim table!

Tabletop World’s Townhouse III – Spooky House Edition!

As mentioned in a previous post I wanted to make my own version of a spooky house. I was inspired by an old Ravensburger boardgame (one I had as a kid) and since I have 2 of Townhouse 3 lying around I figured it was worth an experiment :-D

Tabeletop World - Spooky House

The trees are 4 Ground’s Mature Fir Trees which has been put to good use for our sessions. The dead tree is from Tabletop World. The cute log pile is from Ristul’s.

I painted it mostly in dark brown colours starting with Muddy Soil from Reaper paints and highlighting my way up to Dark Shadow and Brown Sand. The reds are Clotted Red and highlighted with Mahogany Brown also from Reaper. My husband added some moss tufts in recesses of the roof.

Here are a few more pictures. I included the Mordheim Witch to the pictures as she fits right in! Which/Witch :) reminds me that I need to put her up on the blog with her own post!

Cursed Treasure Set

I painted this awesome Treasure Set from Ristul’s Extraordinary Workshop. I love painting treasure sets and this set is very original and has lots of cool elements – So I actually ended up painting two of them in different color schemes (I’ll probably sell one of the sets at some point ;-)

You can purchase the Cursed Treasure Set here at King Games – Where we’ve also used the pictures above!

Chaos Shrine & Altar

I recently made a pretty cool conversion piece to use as a Chaos Shrine in Warhammer. It started out with two columns from Fenryll, the gargoyles and skull wall from Games Workshop, the top piece from a chaos chariot (I think), some styrofoam for the bottom, a chaos symbol in the bottom and a bunch of candles on top.

I quickly painted it afterwards and decided that the piece also needed an altar – So I used a Fenryll altar and added candles from Tabletop-Art, a book from Ristul’s and some more chaos symbols.
