Games Workshop Abaddon… old-school

So I like Abaddon, and have several figures of him. (More coming up later.) It’s not like I have a problem or anything… Anyhow, since the new Games Workshop figure is coming out, the original, the real figure suddenly appeared on the market for much lower prices than before. This is THE figure of Abaddon- … Continue reading Games Workshop Abaddon… old-school

Grim Skull Miniatures – Master Of Crusade (Abaddon the Despoiler)

There is a cottage industry providing models for tabletop games; they look similar to the original characters, but not too similar (or have different names) so that copyright law is not breached. I personally applaud these companies; they provide models and conversions that are unavailable for a more reasonable price.

Paint review: AK Interactive True Metal range

I really like these paints. They are wax-based, so they behave more like a gel than a paint, and they handle very well.

For large surfaces I found that they … Continue reading Paint review: AK Interactive True Metal range

Well, I guess this … Continue reading Games Workshop – Chaos Space Marine Aspiring Champion

Artel W Miniatures – Eisenhorn (Inquisitor)

I always loved the dark, hopeless world of Warhammer 40K (look up Grimdark when you have some time). This is an universe where even the good guys are worse than any actual historical monster you can think of: a collection of xenophobic, genocidal maniacs in different shapes of forms -and that’s only the Imperium of … Continue reading Artel W Miniatures – Eisenhorn (Inquisitor)

Grim Skull Miniatures: Chaos Rotten Plague Rhino conversion

I quite like the Warhammer 40k universe and regularly paint the odd figure here and there. The cost of larger vehicles unfortunately is very high, especially the resin Forgeworld offerings; when it comes to decide between a small Imperial Knight or a 1/35 T-54 with full interior that is considerably cheaper, not surprisingly I go … Continue reading Grim Skull Miniatures: Chaos Rotten Plague Rhino conversion
