Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

Mordheim Pirates without Mordheim

Thank you DjaliRiot and chadnorth !

I recently discovered there was another game like Mordheim and Legends of the Old West. This was a shock for me! Liking both previous titles very much, it was great to see another skirmish game with ties to Games Workshop.



PIRATES! How cool's that! arrrh

I was very lucky to find a rulebook for a descent price. This skirmish game tends to be rare. It's written by Tim Kulinksi (a very friendly person btw) in 2008.

This game can easily be played in the 1/72 scale. This has a huge advantage: low cost. Generally all 1/72 plastic soldiers/miniatures are very cheap compared to the 28mm miniatures business.



The miniatures I bought are from Orion.

One great thing of being in the miniatures game hobby for a looong time is a bitsbox full of lovely parts. I was rummaging through my Elves bitsbox when I found this lone metal Elven Steed. It didn't take long before I also found rider's legs.



I really wanted to use this Elven head with the upright ponytail. I believe it's from the chariot sprue. It probably belongs to a Lion of Thrace but he'll become a Wood Elf now.



With the cape and Dragon familiar in place, the miniature is ready for primer.



Following miniature came to life in a similar way as the leader above. It's great to have many bits and pieces. They combine into unique yet recognizable miniatures.

The Slann Puzzle

My Lizardmen Slann Lord Mazdamundi conversion is one big puzzle. I am using bit and pieces from various plastic and metal sets to create my version of this famous Mage Priest General.



My metal miniature Slann is missing his feet. As replacements I'll chop off the paws of a purple dragon miniature from World of Warcraft: The Boardgame – The Burning Crusade. His three-fingered hands are perfect for the Slann Lord.

My "regular" Stegadon monster-warmachine is nearing completion too. Again this conversion is a combination of various miniatures and pieces from my bitsbox.



I couldn't have done this without my precious black TEC-7 glue.

Toyotamundi, Hondamundi, MAZDAMUNDI !

Like all Slann, Mazdamundi is a powerful wizard, able to bend the winds of magic to his whims. Being the oldest of the Second Generation, Mazdamundi's powers far outstrip even those of other Slann. Mazdamundi's focus is on geomancy, and he is easily the foremost practitioner of this rare and difficult lore today. On the battlefield, Mazdamundi's fearsome geomantic powers can destroy dozens of foes at once.

When called to battle, which is thankfully rare, Mazdamundi rides upon the back of a giant Stegadon named Zlaaq, a beast he controls through sheer force of will.


I always wanted a miniature for this special character ever since I bought the 5th edition Lizardmen army book. I had high hopes when "Warhammer - The End Times" was announced. GW was producing giant models, but unfortunatelly never a model for Mazdamundi.

The illustration above by John Blanche really sets the tone. But the Mazdamundi character looks more like a Saurus Warrior.
The following picture is more correct. Here Mazdamundi is clearly a Slann toad wizard. Look at those macabre burning frogs raining down...



And so conversion work commences. Zlaaq will be represented by a (cheap) Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures beast. I am using various bits from my Lizardmen bits box. A palanquin from a spare Slann Mage, combined with a throne from the plastic Carnosaur sprues.



I'll add some shields, plaques, standards and golden items here and there.



There's still a lot to be done, but this is a great project!



In a way, he reminds me of the ancient Mayan king Pacal Votan. Author Erich Von Daniken once speculated that this depiction carved into a sarcophagus' lid was king Pacal at the controls of a flying craft of some sort...

for me the most fun part of the miniature gaming hobby is converting. You gather all your spare parts and try to make some extra miniatures. That's how these Skink heroes came to life.

The helmets and weapons are from the Lizardmen Terradon set, and the sculpted rock is actually a battle standard from the Lizardmen Cold One Knights set.



I'll be using them as champions in Warhammer clashes and as Lizardmen heroes in Warmaster 28mm battles.



Both miniatures are based on Skink Archers from the 5th edition Warhammer Fantasy boxed game.



The backbanner is a standard from a Tomb Kings plastic set.

My Wood Elves have been waiting on the shelves for too long. Time to start painting the army. I will do a speed painting technique called TOTTEK on the core Glade Guards. (More about TOTTEK below.)



The regiment above will be the only Elves (Eternal Guards) with a different color. Instead of spraying them green and brown, I'll go for the color scheme by Donald Kueker. He used red, yellow and blue for the Elves in HeroQuest: Elf Quest Pack. The included unit filler is a bear from World of Warcraft Miniatures Game.







My Dryad regiment will be in their Oak aspect. They are Mage Knight miniatures with a fitting name: Oak Warriors laugh





Here's more about TOTTEK speed painting:

Cutting, glueing and folding old and expensive cardboard is fun. But this watermill from Terror of the Lichemaster sure wasn't. I finally succeeded but I needed a lot of tools and patience.



(I believe the watermill can also be found in Warhammer Townscape: Card Buildings for Warhammer games...)

A recent game of Formula Dé rekindled my love for this game.

I'm a fan of the yearly 24 hours race at Le Mans (France). There are many expansion tracks for Formula Dé, but they never made Le Mans. And I really want to race this legendary track!

So I had to make one myself.

Several A4 prints to make one large gameboard:


With lanes and corner sections in pen:


I miscalculated the width of the track, that's why some sections only have two lanes instead of three. One day I'll reprint with correct width...

I have a new set of dice. They're issued by the Chaos god Tzeentch, a.k.a. Changer of Ways.



What a fitting set of dice. 7's! Now I'll win every Warhammer battle. devil
