Grinning Skull Miniatures: Little Killa Clowns!

3 Nov

So, it’s been a while since the Grinning Skull Miniature line has had any new additions, but fear not, in true honour of Pennywise the Dancing Clown and all things Halloween,  we have some lovely little murder dwarves to use in your miniature based games!

These diminutive and horrible harlequins are suitable for either 15mm, 20mm and 28/32mm gaming, and in true Grinning Skull style have both a humorous and sinister edge to them! Available as a pack of 10 (GRNP06) for £9.00, or as singles too.

As ever, these little terrors are brought to you by our good friends at Alternative Armies, premier purveyors of perfectly packaged pewter playing pieces (whew! try saying that over and over!) and you can find these little fellers’ along with the rest of the Grinning Skull Miniature range here: https://www.alternative-armies.com/collections/grinning-skull-miniatures/products/grnp06-little-killa-clowns-pack-and-singles 

Also, if you’re a fan of Grinning Skull miniature strangeness, please keep your eyes peeled for new releases coming soon in the range, trust me when I say that amongst them will be that which a lot of you have been asking me about for years now, no spoilers, but those who’ve asked me will know exactly what they are!

As ever, let me know your thoughts on these and the range, I’d love to hear what game you’d use them in, how you’ve painted them and what other stuff you think would be a great idea to add to the growing range!!!

Oathsworn Miniatures- Kickstarting Dwarf campaign starts today!

8 Apr

I received news about this KS today, so I reckon I should let you guys know about the Oathsworn Dwarves KS that started today.

Now I have never been a fan of fantasy dwarves really, although there have been quite a lot of nice looking figures over the years, they never interested me very much to collect them other than a few bits here and there. I’ll try and say some positive things about Dwarves, however I generally feel a great deal of apathy toward the diminutive little fellers!!

Lets hope that the Oathsworn KS may change my mind. With a range being planned for the campaign that highlights ten of their legendary heroes. I must admit, the one example green from the range so far, does look pretty good and is quite a nice piece, I love the expression of grim determination on his face!

I think if the sculpts are as good as this, they could be on for a winner. My only criticism is that while this one is pretty good, the other concepts are lacking something. The poses seem to be a bit uninspired, being done many times before by many other miniature companies (There have been lots and lots of dwarven warriors done before, so I do think it’s hard to come up with “really” original new ideas as they have een done to death!) Hey, what do I know, I’m not a dwarf fan!

If you are a fan, and fancy getting involved to get your self a part of the action, check out the KS link below!!
