War Peegs

This must be the smallest set of figures I've painted outside of Epic scale marines. To give a better idea of scale, here's a WIP shot of the peegs alongside a Lego lady.

 Despite the size, these were surprisingly fun to paint.

I backed these a couple of years ago when Bad Squiddo were starting Kickstarters, and wasn't disappointed with the quality of sculpt or casts. Who doesn't want a guinea pig with dynamite ...

Or tubes of poison ...

 Or a subtly rear mounted cannon ...

Or even an armoured captain with an eyepatch.

Very silly. Ridiculous idea. Lots of fun.

Black Crab priests

My painting's taken a hit of late, in terms of my mojo running out at the same time I finished up my job. This is my "reboot" to reinvigorate my interest. Moreso with SMC next month and my current plan is to paint something to compete there. Argh!

Three creepy grimdark priests sculpted by Meridian Miniatures based on drawings by Black Crab Art. It was originally a Kickstarter ( but I missed that - happily Andrew@Meridian still had stock afterwards and dispatched them promptly.

The resin casts are lovely, with minimal cleanup required. Highly recommended.

Total time is only around four or five hours for the lot, but getting my head back into painting made it a worthwhile endeavour - even if I haven't truly done the sculpts justice.
