An occasional journal chronicling my ongoing forays into the world of roleplaying games, boardgames & tabletop wargames and my continuing lack of success in either of the last two; this is where the lament bit comes in.

Handgrenadealiens Workbench of Doom
A little glimpse into the dark and dangerous maelstrom that is my work area, although it is somewhat less chaotic than usual since I had to clear it for last weekends Apollonia game. Work in progress at the moment is 48 successor Argyraspids which were this weeks purchase from Gripping Beast. I intend to paint them up as Seleucid line phalangites as per the colour plate in the Montvert depicted.
Also current is an older purchase from Tabletop World, a Croatian duo who produce resin fantasy buildings in a Ruritanian/ Ghormenghastian style.
This impressive edifice stands 17" high by 7" wide and comes with full interior detail. So far its been great fun to paint, mainly because it rewards careful dry brushing a technique I,ve not had occasion to use for some time. This will eventually form a centrepiece for my Lamentations of the Flame Princess RPG campaign probably as a Guild HQ. I can't recall the provenance of the two miniatures but they form the core of the projected group of stalwarts who will undertake sneaky & underhand deeds in the name of right.
