Check out how we painted the Grot Scuttlings.  After having completed all the horrors we moved onto painting these weird goblin like creatures.  It’s a bit like they took all the goblin models from the old game and squished them together to make these monstrosities.

    Talisman Thief

    Another Talisman character painted up!  This guy is really small compared to the Space Marines I’m also currently painting, about half their height! I’m not having a great time painting pink cloth but I think this is an improvement over the minstrel.

    Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth WIP Update

    Since I’ve been playing with our camera set up I thought I’d share the photos of all the WIP marines I’ve started painting for the Calth game.

    Cloud of Paint

    This is our little blog for posting photos of complete and WIP miniatures. After around 5 years without painting I’ve recently picked up the brushes and Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth.  Photos coming soon. Emma has been getting into the Talisman board game as well as painting her first miniatures.  I’m sure she’ll post them soon.
