I paint small metal and plastic figures and rarely get to play with them. But that is fine with me.

No zombies yet

Wasn't enthused all that much to get painting zombies this week so far, but that could change between now and Sunday when my Week 3 post is supposed to be up.

Instead, I've been inspired by Rich Barnes' rpg scenery pieces and so got some done for my own game.

First up, an old out-of-print Forge World (I think) "Shrine". Quick and dirty paint job with some cheeky leaves to make it look a lot better than it actually is. The sculpt is pretty cool, but in true GW fashion, the Skull-a-plenty really does make the piece a little silly. Still, it'll add some extra visual fun to my settings and can be used in tabletop skirmish games too!

Then I went and painted up a Reaper bones Altar and pair of candelabras.

My Heroquest Sorcerer holds mass for the evil folk out there.
Seeing the hollow back of this altar makes me think of the Police Academy films.... Humm.....

Also to do for scenery are a Pegasus Hobbies Gothic church looking thing and an MDF lasercut ruined building from Techtonic Studios (That I got from the first Kickstarter I supported.). 

AND - these!

Some more cheesy skulls-on-skulls GW scenery pieces from their fantasy line - Garden of Morr cemetery set and their Chapel. Originally I was planning to get rid of all of those skulls, but only had energy for the Chapel - the cemetery will be painted up as is, I have too much other stuff to be getting on with. 

And to prove I have indeed been working on my ACW confederates, here's a wee WIP picture of the progress thus far.


  1. Brilliant! I love the shrine, even with the skulls (but the notice pinned to it is priceless), the evidence of recent sacrifice is wonderfully gory and reminds me that I have this piece kicking around here somewhere.

    1. Thanks Michael. They all have some fun character to them so were entertaining to paint for sure.

  2. Blimey ! You've been busy.

    1. Comes in fits and starts. We'll see if I can keep up this pace.

  3. Hmmm. Needs more skulls, Dai.

    Thanks for the link, btw!

    1. Hehe - no, not at all.

      You're most welcome sir.

  4. Looks cool though dude nice work :)

  5. Love it - especially the altar...and the Police Academy reference!
