Advertising Pillar!

As I mentioned in my Notice Board post, I also made an advertising pillar using a lot of posters either found online or self-made. The Advertising pillar is from Thomarillion and it has a really good size with loads of space for posters.

I simply added layer after layer of small posters, and I’m pretty sure there are shortcuts to this such as full printed sides, but this just gives it such an authentic look!
I actually made two of these as one of them was for my pre-painted section a while ago. It sold the same day :-)

It looks great on our Mordheim table as a terrain piece!

Here is the Pillar shown from one its sides :-)

Advertising Pillar

Most of the posters on this side of the pillar is made up of posters from the internet and our cool Ulli & Marquand Wanted posters. The wanted poster is Geralt of Rivia from the Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings!

I made a link in another post with some of the cool posters I used for my Notice Board Poster. Check it out :-)

Posters for Notice Boards!

I’ve received several mails and comments about the posters I used for the Message/ Notice Board, and I have made a PDF file with all the posters in various shapes and colour shades. Sometimes it just fits better with a pale neutral poster when I put them on buildings and such :)

Download Here – It’s a really BIG file in high resolution. (15 mb) so have patience!

Here is one we used as hand-outs for our RPG sessions. My husband is the GM and made the poster from an old softcover book.
We originally intended to use it for the old collector miniature Ulli & Marquand’s Wanted Poster Sign, but we ended up with another idea. Reminds me that I need to get that up on the blog some time :-P

Here is the Message Board in its full glory as shown on the Original Post

Notice Board

I used a small decal scissors for the cut-outs and something called Alles-kleber (which I assume is normal hobby glue) and very carefully glued the posters on the wooden frame :-)

Frostgrave has Arrived!

As a fan of Mordheim I was eager to find out what the “big deal” with Frostgrave was. More than a few customers have mentioned it during the last few months and we finally got the whole shabang this week.

Very exciting miniatures and I’ve already opened up a box of Frostgrave Soldiers, which is very simular to Games Workshop’s now recent discontinued Empire Free Company (only a bit warmer dressed). It was only a matter of time since their great success with Age of Sigmarines (sarcasm may apply), killed all the previous and beloved lore and all the heroes within :*-(

Luckely I managed to reserve my copies of Bretonnia and Empire sets a while ago, along with metal versions on Ebay. Hardly anyone will miss their Finecast miniatures anyway! ;-)

Back to Frostgrave!

The rulebook is really cool with tons of amazing artwork which I always find intriguing! And I like the idea of a sorcerer as leader with apprentice and hired soldiers. I do play Possessed after all, so I might take a look at those cool cultist miniatures!

My husband made this cool banner for our shop King Games where you can buy everything from the Frostgrave line! You can find the category here

Avatars of War: Orc Shaman

Yet another post today, I’m on fire! I painted the Avatars of War miniature “Orc Shaman”  for my husband’s Orc Warband to be used in Mordheim. He’s been working on converting a bunch of orcs to appear to be raiding the town (Empire hats, bunch of loot on them etc.) – This one is one of the few “Normal” orcs in the warband.

I’ll put up some more pictures soon of his warband – And my own warband as well (The Possessed).

Mordheim: SoS Matriach

I think this is my first Sisters of Sigmar that I’ve put up on the blog. I’ve been painting them in a few different color schemes as the models are very similar, and I want them to have different uses for RPG’ing. But here’s the first one, the Matriach – In pretty traditional Sigmar colors:

I’m looking forward to getting more Sisters of Sigmar up on the blog – I’ll eventually put up separate pages for each of the Mordheim Warbands – Hopefully I’ll have time to start on it soon :-)

Mordheim: The Town Cryer

“Hear, Hear, I’m here!”

Another one done for the Mordheim Collection. This time it’s The Town Cryer from the Hired Swords. I gave him a rather sickly look, as it appears that the miniature is sort of zombified – Additionally he fits perfect into the WFRP Middenheim campaign, as the town is struck by a weird plague (Or gifts from Papa Nurgle?) – So I guess that this Town Cryer can both announce how the plague progresses verbally and visually.. :P

Mordheim: Town Cryer

And of course the Mordheim progress – Added the Town Cryer and The Frenzied Mob: Butcher as well.
