Expansion 1.0: Spidiculous

I hated painting Spidiculous. I really love the model. It’s so fun and wacky and insane, it just can’t help but look good on the table. But man I hated painting it. Should have done it in sub-assemblies instead of fighting all those legs all the time.
That said, instant reward getting to paint the 6 little Spidiculings rigth after. They’re just so super cute. Look at that big smile. Just wanna hug them, and squish them and call them…Will apparently.

Look at that smile ❤

Since Spidiculous doesn’t really have a ‘base’ where he touches the ground, there’s a nekkid dude reaching out model.I believe he’s supposed to be reaching for the ‘nekkid lady lure’. But I thought it would be more fun wrapping him in ‘spiderweb’, fighting his way out of it.

I believe this was the last of the 1.0 expansions that had Survivors as well. Not that I don’t have any survivors left to paint. Lots of pinups still. But done with the Expansion 1.0 ones…I think.

Captain Banana Spear and his Watergang

I’ve tried so many times. Boiling water, ice cold water, a short overnight sleep in the freezer. But the spear (and the axolotl’s sword) bends back every time. So I’ve stopped fighting it. Guess that’s what you get with Reaper minies. It’s a shame though. There’s some real sweet details on them (like the seahorses on Mr. Spears breastplate-thingy). Without further ado, I present Captain Banana Spear and his Watergang. If you can’t beat them, join them…I guess.

I have no idea what to use these for. None whatsoever. They were just too much fun not to paint them.

“I’m a true Nord. Simple as that.”

Stormcloak Skirmishers done. Actually they’ve been done for a while. I’ve just been really bad at getting around to taking pictures. Really fun to paint. The modeled details were quite good. Doesn’t leave much room to add your own touch to it, but it does make it a lot easier to decide how to paint them 😉

Johannes, Uwe and some Dunkelshelf changes

Yeah, I know. Johannes is missing an arm (and a really nice torch, attached to that arm). I wanted to paint her sub-assembly style. So told myself, I’ll just put that arm right over there. Now, it’s not like the arm is missing. I mean…it’s right there. It’s just that I no longer remember where there is (to quote Terry Pratchet). Still, she’s such an amazing figure (look at those details, wow!), even without her arm. So decided to finish her. Right now I’m toying with the idea of either ordering an extra Johannes and get her, her arm. Or maybe green sculpt some bandages on her, to make it look like she’s simply missing that arm.

Uwe is pretty straight forward. But so much fun to paint. Wanted him colourful, but at the same time, his clothes shouldn’t look straight out the seamstress’ shop. The coulours are a little ‘washed out’ on the photo, making the cute seashells on his shoes blend in with his skintone. It’s a shame, cause in RL that detail is just perfect.

Got Hermans house painted up for the Dunkelshelf. And made some changes to the layout. That’s probably something I’ll do for as long as the shelf exists. Anyway, I moved the church into the background. Means you can no longer see the front door, where I liked some of the details. But you can see more of what’s going on back there, since it was blocking out a lot. Aaaaaand, I’m thinking with the church near the Prancing Peacock and the Dunkelshelf Slum area, the priests are where they’re needed (at least in their eyes). Sinners all around. Also added a walkway to the broken bridge. Like the feel of it being patched up like that. Moved the fountain to the front. Wanna play with some water effects on that one, so it would be a shame it was hidden in the background. And also now I have more space to play with the market area.

Summer Vacation Linus

I love and adore Linus. And not just because he bears my name. I seriously love the figure in and off itself. So I might have bought quite a few of him. And while he looks absolutely stunning in his original form, here’s the guy going off on summer vacation. Even servants need a little time off now and then.

And not only is he standing there, enjoying the soft cool breeze, drinking something alcoholic. He is also waiting for his date to show……

Didn’t do much to him really. Sculpted a hat out of green stuff, cut off the candle and glued on a tiny glass. Which has broken off so many times it now sits wonky. But I’m putting that down to Linus being drunk. Lastly I drilled away the keys, and added some flowers. Pretty pleased with how he ended up. Quite annoyed with hos difficult it was to take a picture of his face. Think the shadows from the hat just completely messed up my phones capabilities to do a decent job.

Also, yes, it is fully intentional that he has a quite unhealthy skin tone. He’s slowly developing a background story here, and that plays a part of it.

Dunkeldorf – Prancing Peacock Gifts

I was gifted some early miniatures for the second Dunkeldorf Kickstarter. Beautiful sculpts, with great details and so so sooooo much character. I could go on about the high detail level, the fantastic customer service and the amazing people behind this project. But if you take away just one thing from Dunkeldorf, it should be that these are amazing miniatures in all their ‘normal-ness’. They have fat bellies, scars, hunched backs, drooping breasts. Their not ‘heroic adventures’, just people trying to carve a life for themselves in the town of Dunkeldorf. And I seriously love that ❤

Linus Witzner

I can’t begin to describe how incredibly honored I am that Linus has been given ‘my name’. So the minute my pledge arrived, he was the first to be painted. And what an absolute joy to paint. The details are amazing, and there’s still enough ‘flat’ areas to add your own touch.

After watching Kujo Paintings tartan tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoxHISEa7Lw I decided to spice up his coat on the inside. Wanna get better with my freehand, and this was the perfect excuse. So while not following the tutorial to the letter, I really like the end result, with the amount of time I put into it.

Also wanted a more ‘textured’ feel to the outside of the coat, so did a little stipling, And really like the soft feel it added.

Have been buying some terrain scatter stuff, like fireplaces and the like. And wanted to use it as backdrop for my Dunkeldorf stuff, but haven’t gotten around to paint any of it yet. So did feel a little sad, it would be another ‘portrait’ image. Until I realized I had the perfect furniture of all times. Hero Quest!

(yes! I do realise he’s on a wooden floor base, and it’s stone on the terrain. Haven’t received the wooden flooring for this terrain yet)

Close ups of the tartan. Really please with the outcome for how quickly it was to make


I think she’s my favorite so far. The fact that she had scraped her knee on one side, made it easy to decide she was bleeding through her bandages on the other leg. I also wanted her to stand out a little, and not be too grey and brown. So went for yellow cloth and made her staff a little ‘done up’. She might look grumpy, but she’s a softy on the inside, in my version of Dunkeldorf.

I wanted Herman to really stand out, so went for a high contrast using purples and yellows. I think his cloak ended up looking a little ‘bathrobe’ like. But I bet he doesn’t care :p

It really wasn’t all that easy choosing which character to begin with, but in the end I chose Günther. Cause I just love his hat! ❤ And the little brush hanging from his belt, is just an amazing attention to detail.
