Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

for me the most fun part of the miniature gaming hobby is converting. You gather all your spare parts and try to make some extra miniatures. That's how these Skink heroes came to life.

The helmets and weapons are from the Lizardmen Terradon set, and the sculpted rock is actually a battle standard from the Lizardmen Cold One Knights set.



I'll be using them as champions in Warhammer clashes and as Lizardmen heroes in Warmaster 28mm battles.



Both miniatures are based on Skink Archers from the 5th edition Warhammer Fantasy boxed game.



The backbanner is a standard from a Tomb Kings plastic set.

My Wood Elves have been waiting on the shelves for too long. Time to start painting the army. I will do a speed painting technique called TOTTEK on the core Glade Guards. (More about TOTTEK below.)



The regiment above will be the only Elves (Eternal Guards) with a different color. Instead of spraying them green and brown, I'll go for the color scheme by Donald Kueker. He used red, yellow and blue for the Elves in HeroQuest: Elf Quest Pack. The included unit filler is a bear from World of Warcraft Miniatures Game.







My Dryad regiment will be in their Oak aspect. They are Mage Knight miniatures with a fitting name: Oak Warriors laugh





Here's more about TOTTEK speed painting:

Cutting, glueing and folding old and expensive cardboard is fun. But this watermill from Terror of the Lichemaster sure wasn't. I finally succeeded but I needed a lot of tools and patience.



(I believe the watermill can also be found in Warhammer Townscape: Card Buildings for Warhammer games...)

A recent game of Formula Dé rekindled my love for this game.

I'm a fan of the yearly 24 hours race at Le Mans (France). There are many expansion tracks for Formula Dé, but they never made Le Mans. And I really want to race this legendary track!

So I had to make one myself.

Several A4 prints to make one large gameboard:


With lanes and corner sections in pen:


I miscalculated the width of the track, that's why some sections only have two lanes instead of three. One day I'll reprint with correct width...

I have a new set of dice. They're issued by the Chaos god Tzeentch, a.k.a. Changer of Ways.



What a fitting set of dice. 7's! Now I'll win every Warhammer battle. devil

The Warmaster Trial Armies army list provides rules for summoning Valkyries. I really want to use these spectral female warriors in my Norse army. But there's a catch. You'll need a Norse Shaman with a special Chariot Mount. That's why I started gathering cheap bits and converting commenced.



An old High Elf chariot it the basis of my miniature. I had two spare horses with a Celtic attitude from I-Kore's Gaels.



The Shaman is a plastic Chaos Marauder from Games-Workshop with a staff from the Wood Elves sprues. His Horn of Resounding (to summon the Valkyries) is an Orc musician arm.



I konw his right hand is a bit off-scale. I'll paint it silvery to represent an armoured fist.
Only one thing left to add, a cape!

And now you're all wondering which miniatures I'll be using to represent the incomming horde of mounted Valkyries... I've seen Foundry Miniatures, but those women are all on foot. Then there are some great winged angels from Reaper Miniatures. But they're too expensive for a side-project like this. Bretonnian Pegassi with mounted Wood Elves crossed my mind too. But again, too costly...

Spoiler (click to reveal)




3x Moonstar on Brightwind. (On 40mm square GW bases.) They'll be my mounted Viking women!

Sick of Superglue? Try TEC-7.

I have been promoting TEC-7 glue quite often in my blog. I don't have shares in the company, but it's my holy grail for sticking metal miniatures together. (Works on plastics too.)



Here's how I work with the stuff. The product comes in tubes that require a "pistol" to apply the glue.



Take a piece of paper and apply a dot of TEC-7. Then use a small tool (or strip of cardboard) to smear the glue onto your miniature. The glue takes a long while to harden. Let it rest for hours. One advantage of TEC-7 is that it remains "rubbery". So the miniature can take a hit and the glue won't break.



TEC-7 is ideal if you have a batch of miniatures that need to be attached to the slottabases. Plastic glue or superglue does not allow rearranging a lot after you glued it to the base. With TEC-7 you can adjust the position of the miniature if it does not fit well into the regiment.



You might know this iconic miniature from Warhammer 4th edition: an Orc Shaman mounted on his Wyvern. This miniature is heavy metal. The wings are heavy and they break easily when glued with superglue. TEC-7 remains "rubbery" and can take a hit.

After three years I finally found the courage to open my box of Pandora. The damage is repairable. Almost all glued miniatures are broken; Wolfen, Griffon, Troll, ... And the Griffon inquisitors' paint is chipped. Luckily the partial (good) paintjob on the Wolfen has somehow survived the crash.



Looking at my Confrontation collection now, I going to reuse some of the miniatures for other 28mm games.

The Wolfen will have a dual use: 28mm Warmaster and Confrontation.
For the Keltois I have other plans: a WFB Norse army!
The Griffon, Mid-nors and Orcs will remain Confrontation.
The Troll... yeah what to do with the Troll? ...





The Orc Brontops-beast riders (top left in the main picture), they'll go to my WFB Ogre Kingdoms army to be used as Rhinox riders.

I wanted to cut and glue again. No matter what. After rummaging through my bitsbox I found some old Orcs.



A decapitated Orc Arrer Boy from WHFB 6th edition is converted into a spear wielding Boss. He so large he needs a cavalry base.



I found 4 Orc arms with spears. I think they're from the Boar Riders set. That's enough to represent an entire regiment of Orcs with Spears.



Another 4 by 3 regiment to add to my Warmaster 28mm armies!
