Sandworm and Silverbacks

 Reaper Bones Purple Worm painted as a sandworm with a multi-genre basing system...

 The multi-genre basing system consists of a 60mm round base (for most sci-fi type skirmishes, etc.) that nests onto a 60mm square base (for most fantasy games).

 Some comparison shots. Above a Harbinger of Isis takes on the Sandworm. Below, the time travelling adventurers Zehuti and Somarra are surprised by the Sandworm's sudden entrance.

From Dust Tactics these Axis Gorillas have been removed from their integral bases and mounted on 25mm square bases. I also glued their loose hands in place before arranging them so they would present a nice unit formation for WarGods of Ægyptus.

 This last one is my favorite of the 3 poses.

And a comparison shot of the 3 silverbacks advancing on the anti-hero Tebbi the Archer.

March 15 Update

Another eclectic mix of terrain and minis...

First up- 4 more Vanguard Troopers from the Battle for Alabaster box.

The first  Reaver heavy weapon.

The first Lancer heavy weapoin.

The first male Vanguard Trooper.

The very limited edition* helmetless male Vanguard Trooper. {*a conversion headswap with the extra reaver fig that came in the box. It was pretty easy and more headswaps are coming with the gobs of plastic heads from various plastic sets I've got.}

A Tormented Mummy figure from Crocodile Games. Poor guy is floating along the sands a puppet of the Eater of the Dead.

Anobjective marker for various settings- the Jade-ish Scorpion.

More CD base terrain!!! A plastic waterbottle cross-section for a simple quonset hut multi-genre piece.

...and another ruins piece made with foam blocks and marshmallows.

 Finally, a look at the expanding Ruins set.

And also how they stack up nicely for shelf storage.

March 3rd Update

A couple of CD-based multi-genre ruins, a WarGods scroll stand. and an a;ien guy I like to call 'Digdug' rebased and repainted.

First up, Digdug fromthe old Trinity Battleground game. Based on a more fitting sized base he's ready to take his place with the rest of the spaceport folks (or possible spaceport folks).


The first of the CD-based Lame Terrain pieces. It was either Michael's or the Dollar Tree that had these bags full of red yellow and blue foam "marshmallows" a while back. They were so cheap I had to get a bag to try and make some simple but effective columns...

The second CD-based terrain piece also has a marshmallow column, but there's also the big block wall. these foam blocks were also at Michael's or Dollar Tree. I have/had plans to try and build a small pyramid out of them too. there are plenty left so expect to see many more of these little ruins bases to clutter up the battlefield....


And finally, another scroll stand from the WarGods objectives series. I think this is the third one of these I've painted- you can never have too many scrolls...
