Warhammer Shadespire Sepulchral Guard - a short miniature review

A christmas present to me, from me ;-)

I bought this purely for the miniatures I have to admit. I dont know much about the new boardgame "Warhammer Underworls Shadespire" - a game for two with lots of cards involved obviously.

The quality of the plastic miniatures is superb, as you would expect from GW. The level of detail as well as the overall fit and finish are great. I dare to say GW still makes the best multipart plastic miniatures out there. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of these figures: Being used to the recent gigantism coming along with Age of Sigmar, I was expecting skeletons at least twice the size of an average human ;-) However, these undead henchmen are perfectly sized, I would even call them slender. Their weapons are nicely scaled down as well, not the usual oversized toy hammers associated with AoS.

The poses are very dynamic: rotating, rising from the grave, half skull missing and the common foot on rock with flying coat pose - all here and well done. Every figure has its own sculpted base, one coming with a small grave stone. A very nice set and quite useful for every undead fan!

Burgundian Bombard

Finito. I messed up the gun shield - painted it upside down :-( so I had to do some surgery to make it fit on the scaffold...

WIP Burgundian Bombard IV

Just the remaining wooden cover and some add-ons for the base. I dont have much time for painting recently so you might have to wait some more for all the parts come together...

Rotten Factory Miniatures

Small introduction of some nice 28mm fantasy minis I discovered recently:

Rotten Factory

The Polish company offers mainly chaos themed miniatures in 28mm scale. The figures are multipart resin castings of very good quality. Obviously some of the figure designs/themes are inspired by a certain big player in the wargames industry ;-) nevertheless there are some really special  and beautiful "chaotic" characters.

WIP Burgundian Bombard III

The bombard itself. I shortened the woodwork a bit to make it fit on the base available. I mixed a bit of bronze into the gunmetal grey to make it stand out against the armour of the crew.

WIP: More Swiss

Experimenting a bit with Simons Swiss castings of Steelfist origin (Simon, Oliver - I hope you dont mind me posting the link here - Swiss Castings)

As you can see the  Steelfist Swiss match the Perry late medieval figures very well. In the first picture you see a Perry WOTR metal knight with a Swiss head, a Swiss figure with a Perry plastic head and a Swiss figure "out of the box". The halberds are esp. nice and come gladly a bit longer than the short Perry polearms.

The second picture shows two Perry plastic figures with Steelfist Swiss arms attached. The arms have small splints and can easily be attached to the plastic bodies using a small drill and some superglue.

All in all a very good set and I am certainly hoping for more Perry late medieval "mods"! ;-)

1/100 plastic robot kit. I am used to built scale model kits -but this one was quite a challenge. Lots of parts and the instruction in Japanese... ;-)

WIP: Infinity Combined Army 2

As much as I like the Corvus Belli figures but they are SO difficult to paint, just too many details. I wanted to finish the 3 remaining Rodoks in one sitting but no way...

Received some of their new 15mm scale vehicles. I will try to incorporate them into the Halo setting.
