Final Headcount

Last post for the year in total I have managed 154 figures, virtually three every week despite a lot of travel with work (over 20 outbound flights this year). I also managed to mainly stick to projects in hand and not buy many figures.
I have the otherworld miniatures indiegogo figures but still waiting the second batch. I love these figures and would have bought more if not put off by the delays with the indiegogo delivery.
So totals for the year are:-
Call Of Cthulhu 37 Darkest Africa 8 Mahdists 4 USA WW2 12 Modern Zombies 4 Fantasy RPG 89

3 Monsters (including another manticore)

Some recent painting

Otherworld Manticore

Otherworld Shambling Mound

And finally a Dungeons and Dragons collectors series resin Purple Worm, which I perfer to the Otherworld ones

Manticore Repaint

I recently decided to strip down an old citadel Manticore figure and repaint it.

After looking at the figure I decide that the base colour was fine.

To improve the paint job I washed the figure with citadel devlin wash, then highlighted with Vallejo Tan Yellow and added black to the tail and main.

The original base was bland so I created a new one using pieces of flint picked up while walking the dog.

I think that it is a considerable improvement over the original, which hardly looks like the same figure,


2013 Update

Otherworld Hook Horror
Somehow I have not posted any figure updates this year, despite my aim to post once a month.

This year I have painted 53 figures but the volume has dropped off and only 1 this month so far due to real life getting in the way including plenty of work travel and a holiday in Turkey..

For this blog we have:-


4 Troglodytes
8 Spiders
6 Adventurer
2 Skeleton
1 Citadel Lamia
1 Hook Horror
1 Storm Giant
1 Giant LIzard
2 Were rats
3 Otherworld adventurers


5 Cthulhu Creature
12 Cthulhu Adventurers

On the darkest Africa front I have a very small amount:-

1 Gun Bearer
2 Masai
4 Maddhists

So a few Otherworld adventurers and other pictures to make up for some missed.
