Hello to all. Perhaps you don't know, but "our" Kev Adams is in a bad situation...and needs our help. This is the reason why the project Goblinaid started on FB. Read on, put your Like on, and  partecipate to the many initiatives launched on the Facebook page. Let me point below those to which I have adhered too and that I particularly liked! Tieni duro Kev!

A page to coordinate information and help after the brutal stabbing of Kev 'the Goblinmaster' Adams
On Wednesday, 20th March Kev 'the Goblinmaster' Adams was brutally assaulted during a burglary at his home in Nottingham. So many people have offered help and support that we set up this page has been set up to coordinate efforts and information.

Donations can be made directly to goblinaidATfenrisgamesDOTcom. For the time being, please note that we can only accept donations and not payments made on deposit against the charity mini set - it's just too much admin for us at this stage.

We partecipate to:

My Mirliton-Grenadier miniatures arrived safe!

Today is Christmas! It 'got the package I was waiting anxiously ... The giant is amazing, there are two pounds of metal here! The Goblin's box and the diorama of Malvolio are wonderful masterpieces (VERY '80s !!!). But the real Star for me is the Chaos Destroyer, miniature whom I admired on the shelves of I Giochi dei Grandi many years ago... I wonder who had painted.

Mr Basetta make you beautiful.

If you need perfect bases, sculpted in precious wood, totally handmade, here is the website for you. When I saw them I could not resist and buy a couple of them. http://www.ilbasetta.it/


Amazing Dungeon Adventurers miniatures.

Great initiative by Otherworld Miniatures: thanks to fundraising-crowdsourcing INDEGOGO we have the chance to see these beautiful miniatures made​​ (and we can also reserve some miniatures in advance) The first set made will be The Adventurers and then incoming other. I chose the package level 4 ... very nice also the reference levels-money. As in the old damn RPG. Could not resist!

The figures will be sculpted by a variety of talented sculptors, including Kevin Adams and Patrick Keith, with others joining the project later.  The miniatures will depict archetypal fantasy adventurers, human and demi-human, male and female, wearing practical clothing and armour and carrying realistic weapons and equipment. They will be posed for exploration, not combat.  And these characters won’t be muscle-bound superheroes waving Vorpal Swords in the air - they’ll be grim-faced dungeoneers, a little bit down on their luck, and ready for action on your table-top!
The 4 initial boxed sets will be:
DAB1 – Dungeon Adventurers I – Human Male Characters (planned release – January 2013)
  • Fighter in Plate Mail, with Bastard Sword & Torch
  • Cleric in Chainmail, with Mace & Cross
  • Magic User in Robes, with Staff & Lantern
  • Thief in Leather Armour, with Shortsword & Sack
  • Druid in Leather Armour, with Scimitar
  • Ranger in Leather Armour, with Bow
  • Monk in Robes, with Quarterstaff
  • Barbarian in Studded Leather, with Spear & Shield
  • Illusionist in Robes, with Scroll
  • Assassin in Studded Leather, with Blade Venom
  • Paladin in Plate Armour, with Longsword & Shield
  • Bard in Chainmail, with Longsword & Lute

Mirliton is my new God !

As I walked through the stands of Novegro (http://www.parcoesposizioninovegro.it Hobby Model Expo 2012)  I came across these crazy Tuscan family. They are the Mirliton and are reprinting  (pure white metal) ALL  -and I mean all-   the amazing old Grenadier miniatures production. Beautiful, perfectly printed and reproduced in great detail. They bought the original molds and they are really doing a crazy job to bring to light these masterpieces disappeared. I immediately bought a medium Shire Dragon... beautiful, and then I saw the incredible GOBLIN WAR GIANT ... almost 2 kg of pure metal. AMAZING. The prices are fair and on the site there are all the news available. Please.. go ahead! http://www.mirliton.it

Great Beastman from the '80

I love this Chaos warrior. I finally found the time to paint it as it deserves. The bull's head (which it does look like a minotaur) is a real touch of class. Very 80s!

Some new Crooked Claw goblins painted!

During my vacation I painted a couple of goblins (and a special Barbarian Hero ). I must admit that these miniatures are really well done. Paint was great fun, I was able to add many details due to the perfection of sculpture. I look forward to the new order that I placed on Crooked Claw!

Eavy Metal (Tim Prow, Mike, Roy Eastland & Colin Dixon)

 I have a large collection of pictures and this is why I decided to share what I think are the most beautiful  miniatures ever painted by the Heavy Metal teams over the years. Some of these guys are simply guests but in my opinion deserve a prominent place in our hearts. I refer to the beautiful creatures of chaos by Tim Prow.. 
nicely converted, with a cool painting style. 
Lot of work but ... still amazing!! Enjoy!!
 This is one of the best conversions ever created by the hand of Mike Mc Vey. Amazing Eagle Rider full tattoed. Simple but great!

 Mike has a truly unique style of painting.. one of my favourite paint-master ever!
The Colin's Norse dwarf  are something unique and spectacular. Full of exquisite details, beautiful combinations of colors and with an amazing painting styleLook at the faces of the dwarfs!!! Wow! ... It 's true, even the miniatures are sculpted very well, but to make them live, is entirely the work of Colin.

Also the Roy's skeletons are really good, I love how he managed to give the color of the bones without falling into the typical trick of washing. Remember that to paint a skeleton in a professional manner, the washes are useless ... or almost! ;)
