Unicorn Headed Broo

Hey guys,

This Beastman is from the old Runequest Box4c: The Broo range (link). There are some really, really great Beastmen to be found in this classic Broo range. My favourite out of the lot has to be the Iguana Headed Broo. What a great sculpt. Love it and wants it!

The one I have painted is called Unicorn Headed Broo. Now, I’m really into Slaanesh figures as I like using the vibrant colours associated with this Chaos God of lust, greed, excess, pain, pleasure, perfection and hedonism! Here he is:

I’m very pleased with how the pink came out. I find that pink goes really well with grey as I think it brings the figure to life. For the Unicorn horn I decided to use pink instead of the usual bone colour as I thought it tied better with the armour. It sort of brings everything together.  

Before I go I just wanted to say a big thank you to Orlygg of Realm of Chaos 80s (link) fame for mentioning my blog recently. I also want to thank those of you that are now following my blog as a result of this. It really means a lot to me when other citadel lead lovers take a moment of their time to look at my blog. Cheers guys. Really means a lot and keeps me inspired to get more figures painted.

All the best,

CH4 Beastman Zolkor

Hi folks,

Well I finished my latest CH4 Beastman Zolkor:

Not much to say about this mini really. I didn't want to go to town with too many colours so he was a fairly straight forward paint job. As usual, I was far too lazy to paint something on the shield so just left it pink. I might return and finish it at some point.

CH4 Beastman Skrak

White Dwarf issue 95 introduces the fantastic range of CH4Beastmen. The legendary Hesh is seen here in all his glory:

I’ve already painted up Assmos, Atzel and Hesh, so I’ve had ago at painting Skrak:

Skrak off!

Cracking mini from a cracking range of Beastmen. Think I'll have a go at Zolkor next. One thing that bugs me about the advertisement in WD95 is that I find it bloody difficult to make out the names! Should I get any wrong, please feel free to tell me.

Grotesque Metal Shields from Limumworks

Back in the mid 80’s, Citadel produced a line of metal shields:

Now, I’ve seen these shields go for some crazy prices on eBay. One fella won an auction for 24 shields for a whopping £310! These are the shields he or she victoriously won that day:

Just under £13 a shield. Bargain!

Now, they were a tad out of my price range, so since then I’ve been on the lookout for quality metal shields and at last I have found someone who has created these. Limumworks everyone:

Grotesque Shields 01

Grotesque aren't they!

Even the back of the shields are excellant!

They truly are very good and the quality of casting is excellent. I cannot recommend these highly enough and apparently the designer of these shields is going to make even more. These are the first of his releases and they are called Grotesque Shields 01. And, according to the designer, he is currently working on a number of other 28mm scale Oldhammer inspired pieces. 

If you’re interested in purchasing a set, you can get in touch via A set of 8 white metal shields is $10AUD + shipping. 

Here is a link to his blog too:)
