Gnoll Hunters - Lead Adventure League - Round 7

This was my entry for the 7th round of the Lead Adventure League, "Gnoll Hunters". 

The gnolls are plastics from the Frostgrave range, the ranger in the shadows is 'Schumacher' made by Reaper Miniatures.

Bob Olley Samurai Orcs - Lead Adventure League - Round 6

This is a project long in the making. My round 6 LPL entry was "Bamboo Raiders", and was the last group of Samurai-inspired orcs I needed to finish to complete the set I bought around fifteen years ago.


The larger troll/oni I acquired a couple of years ago- but he's by Bob Olley as well, so fits right in.

The first  LPL I was in, in 2011, introduced this group:


I added this band of orcs in 2012:

Add this group in 2017:

2018's entry:

This does it for my Samurai orcs and goblins army, a bunch of minis I bought for no reason other than I liked they way they looked.


Thanks for looking!

Relic Seekers - Lead Adventure League - Round 5

This is my Round 5 entry for the LPL. The miniatures are four resin 'grimdark' scroungers from the Meridian Miniatures "Black Crab" Kickstarters, plus a winged cyber cherub from the Games Workshop Inquisition range.

Credit to Suber for the unusual blue color scheme. He posted his excellent Order of the Ossuary on the Lead Adventure Forum, along with a really cool concept for them, so I decided to follow suit. 

GW had a minor order of Sororitas called the Order of the Blue Robe that I've been wanting to do for a while, so these will tie into a larger Order Pronatus task force dedicated to securing relics.

Here's my entry for the fourth round of the LPL. The miniatures are a Games Workshop Inquisitor and three Repentia, plus a heavily armored nun from HiTech Miniatures. I also recently completed the ruins bits from the Urban Conquest box set.

Bridge Guards - Lead Adventure League - Round 3

This is my Round 3 entry for the Lead Adventure League, "Bridge Guards". The scene depicts a group of gnolls and a bridge used in a 'Rangers of Shadow Deep' scenario.

The bridge is Hirst Arts, the gnolls are Northstar plastics. The shaman has some additional horns from the Skulls kit.

Slaanesh Beastmen - Lead Adventure League - Round 2

My second entry for the LPL this year was a group of sci-fi beastmen from the old Demonblade 'Mutants' range. Pretty sure these are Bob Olley sculpts.


The fabrics didn't have a worn, damaged look one often sees with beastmen, so I decided to go with a pastel, decadent, silky look associated with Slaanesh. The statue in the background is converted from a witch from Uncle Mike's 'Strange Aeons' game. The statue holds a Slaanesh icon and a small vial of some hallucinogenic elixir used in the cult's chaotic rituals.

Abe Lincoln, Ghoul Hunter - Lead Adventure League - Round 1

The Lead Adventure League painting contest, put on at the Lead Adeventure Forum,  has started. Due to a lack of time my entries probably won't be as extravagant as in the past, but I do hope to clear a long-standing project, make some progress on my Rangers of Shadow Deep project, and chip away on the Sisters of Battle.

The first round was themed "Things that Go Bump in the Night" so I used the opportunity to finish up some ghouls and painted a axe-wielding Abe Lincoln to serve as a counterpoint.

Abe is from an Indiegogo campaign I backed many years ago. If I recall, it was quite late and the figures ended up being available through retail (and for less!) before I received my set. I'm not sure who sells them now. The two big ghouls are from Reaper and the smaller ones are older GW metals from the 'Middlehammer' period.
