    Great idea these Dump Sculpts, I should start a project like these. They’re stunning, I like the cartoony style.

    And then there’s that dungeon: wow, brilliant idea and looks amazing.

    Ok folks, last post of the year before the holiday madness begins.

    Best make it a good’un then 😎 ,

    So….

    …”Out of the mists of Tír na nÓg strides Slaine MacRoth with his axe ‘Brainbiter’ in hand and his dwarf Ukko by his side.”


    Sláine: “Announce me, dwarf.”

    Ukko: “Er… Sláine Mac Roth… a bone-splitter, a reddener of swords, a pruner of limbs who delights in red-frothed, glorious carnage. No welcome visitor. Not a friendly face. Your lives would be prolonged for getting out of his way. Excellent with the axe and sword he is. Far from trifling the wounds he gives with his ungentle, woe-working weapons. Well damaged his enemies. Their tribes are full of vacancies. But I expect you know that yourselves now!”

    Being slightly underwhelmed by the size of the Splintered light not-Slaine I decided to take matters into my own hands and convert a Ral Partha Thain barbarian into a more decently sized 15(18)mm Slaine.

    I cut away his puny knife and green stuffed him a propper axe…

    …and then gave him a fur cape.


    And because you can’t have a hero without some monsters for him to fight I also painted…

    a cave bear from Northstar,


    I am the carrion maker!

    a Green Hag from Ral Partha


    I can’t waste time talking to you… I’ll stop that mouth with steel!

     

    some Owlbears from Splintered light


    Kiss my axe!
    some Splintered light Perytons


    Flies will enter these wounds!
    a bunch of goblins , the mounted ones are from Ral Partha, the one on foot is from Splintered light.


    I am the reddener of armour! My axe shall leave a wake of death!
    two Splintered light chimeras

    It’s time I got more gore on my war weapon!

    A pair (foursome?) of ettins from Splintered light.


    Ha! Double the number of heads for me to pickle and show of to my friends!

    A big purple people eater from Ral Partha


    I am the CORPSE-SCORER!The axe river will flow — and you will drown in the wound sea!

    And finally a lava demon also from Ral Partha.


    I am Slaine MacRoth, my blood is white hot!

    All in all I painted nearly a score of figures…

    …and I did not think it to many 😈

    Cheers and happy holidays every body!!!

    Stroezie.

    👏 Marvelous conversion you did on Slaine.

    Very impressive post to end the year with. The lava demon in particular is brilliant.

    Happy Holidays!

    Painting on the horned lava demon amazed me, Im still wrapping my head around the choice of colors. I wonder how you’d kill that thing, it’ll probably melt any steel weapons used on it. The wrapping on th axe also looks good, you’ve even painted runes on it.

    Tired is enough.

    I suspect Slaine is the only man who can defeat Conan in combat.
    I have very fond memories of reading Slaine in 2000AD as a nipper, I still have a cellotape bound book of the 3 graphic novels from the 80’s.

    Good quotes and I had forgotten about the head pickling!

    That demon is very ace, was there a video you did of the how to that you are about to share?

    Hmmmmmmm Slaine..

    Thanks, no video though I’m afraid. But it was a simple, pretty straight forward process.

    Undercoat white, paint with yellow ink, drybrush orange then red and then paint the accents in black then drybrush black over the black to make it blend in and done.

    Oh and as for Slaine comics, if that’s your favourite story arc, you may be happy to know…

    Upcoming Slaine collecters

    edition 2020

    I know I am!

    Ok, first post of the year.

    What! Wait where did January go?

    Oh well…   there goes that new years resolution…

    Let’s see what I’ve been up to then…

    First of I’ve been bangin’ away at some more cavern tiles for D&D

    As you can see I’m starting to get enough pieces together so that I can build a decent battle scene

    I’m thinking of making some water edge tiles to soften the transitions from land to water a bit and then some scatter terrain like stalacmites, mushroom clusters and crystal formations.

    On to the miniature painting side then…

    No D&D is complete without some Orcs

    More orcs…

    And a couple of adventurers to help stop said orcs

    This next mini is from the last splintered light kickstarter, when I saw him I pledged immediately,

    personally I think it is the coolest looking minotaur miniature you can find in 15mm.

    Makes for a really butch end of session bad guy imo.

    The next three figures are actually from the old 28mm Rackham line, I think they were supposed to be some kind of air elemental familiars or something.

    They make great 15mm guardian spirits though,

    the question is “Are they friend or foe?”

    I’ve also based and primed a whole bunch of undead so with a bit of luck I should have more pics to share with you soon.

    Cheers,

    Stroezie.

    Ps: sorry for the quality of some of the pictures, I have just swapped out all my old lamp bulbs for LED’s and I’m struggling a little to find the right camera settings to compensate.

    Cool beans!!

    That orc with the big hat, aces.

    The skulls on the minotaur, they look small compared to a 15mm head, or is that just me?

    They make great 15mm guardian spirits though,

    yes, yes they do!

    Is that a female shaman/wizard there?
    If so, from whence doth she hail?

    15mm is soooo underrated.

    They are no doubt Pixie skulls! Oh, the vicious brute! 😉

    The female shaman/wizard is from Splintered Light

    you can find her here Female Adventurers

    Sorry for the late reply, I’ve been a bit busy lately.

    Great idea these guardian spirits. Some of these 28mm models look as if they’re made for 15mm too (I’m thinking about buying some Bushido kami to use as elementals myself) and these fit in just perfectly.

    The minotaur is probably one of the best models for its kind that I’ve ever seen. What an amazing sculpt and your brushwork makes him even better.

    Sweet looking orcs as well of course, another marvelous post as a whole.

    Some more figures for my ROSD and D&D games.

    Our story begins with…
    The valiant town guard

    I have more of them on the way, just as soon as I get around to cutting of their pikes and then sculpting them some halberts.

    And they are up against…

    some spooky specters

    Three shadowy wraiths

    two fierce wights (who apparently frequent the same hair salon as the bride of Frankenstein 😛)

    and a whole passel of ghouls and ghasts

    For those of you wondering.
    The guards are from Ral Partha’s Blighthaven/Demonworld line.
    All the undead are from Splintered Light, exept for one ghoul who is from Alternative Armies.

    Well, thats it for this episode.

    Cheers,
    Stroezie.

    Everything looks great mate, with your skill it’s even hard to tell they’re actually 15mm.</p>
    I really should get painting again myself and your work certainly has given me a push in the right direction.

    The guards are nice.

    Are those spectres bilious green?

    Thanks for the compliments guys 😳

     

    Are those spectres bilious green?

    They’re various shades of green from unmarked pots I’m afraid, so I don’t really know.

    Cheers,
    Stroezie.

    Wow I’ve missed tonnes. Dunno where to start……..You are doing a great job. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. You have a good eye for colour. Those spectre things in green look simply bad ass. I’m going to do that. In fact I’ll send you a self addressed box. If you then could pop all the featured miniatures into it and send it back that’ll be cool. Or I could find out where you live and if you see a dark figure climbing out of your window carrying all your miniatures in the middle of the night that might be me.
