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.

Adepta Sororitas Seraphim

I've been working sporadically on my Sisters of Battle collection, hoping to get the units I have done before GW drops the new ones.

The Seraphim were my favorite unit in 2nd edition, but I wasn't looking forward to painting them, and I had some conversions in mind for a number of years. I got them done a few weeks ago but didn't have time to get pictures. I have finally remedied that for post #150.

I had the idea to convert some Seraphim to wield dual inferno pistols, but I wanted them to have the archaic looking ones found on the Inquisition miniatures. I used some arms from Empire pistoliers and added a small canister. I also made a new hand flamer sister, since GW only ever made one pose.

Lastly, a few extra seraphim superiors- I had to collect all the variants of course. The bolt pistol/power sword sister is the Ephrael Stern model from the scarce Daemonifuge set. She's almost certainly a recast, I wasn't able to acquire a legit set with the certificate until recently. I'll paint that one with the Martyred Lady scheme.


These took a lot of hours but as always look pretty impressive in a big group when finished.
