3 Dec

In this edition of Grim’s Dungeons of Doom, we are going to deal with the creation of bone piles for our mini dungeon. These can be used as debris or even better (as I plan on doing) as undead respawn markers. Every respectable dungeon should have a few of these to warn those pesky adventurer types, just how they might end up by delving too deep within it’s tunnels…

This is a dead easy and quick make, and will get you some nice looking pieces for really minimal effort.  Continue reading

Terrain Workshop: WIP 15mm Industrial Zone

13 Jul

DSCF3606

So, back to the grind. With events of late, I’ve been having a hard time motivating myself to complete various jobs that I’m supposed to be doing, stuff like this tends to lack importance compared to when life deals out shitty hands. Still, time dredges on, stuff needs doing and thus, whether you like it or not, everyone should kick themselves up the ass from time to time, so thats what I’m in the process of doing!

Anyway, heres a bit of a WIP of one of the latest terrain bits I’m working on at the moment. Its a 15mm Industrial zone (as if you haven’t worked it out!)

Grinning Skull Creative update, and we’ve scored 250,000+ hits…

25 Apr

Long time no post!! Hi everyone, just taking a break in my busy schedule to do some long overdue updates here, and I just wanted to let you know that I’ve just finally added a couple of pages to the site that are intended to show and catalogue some of the work I have done in a shameless attempt to ply my wares, which incidentally will from now on, go under the banner of Grinning Skull Creative Studios.

In the menu, you will now find a page for miniature sculpting services (which also has a small gallery of my works for you to have a browse) and another page for Wargames Terrain Services with another gallery at past and present examples of stuff.

I’ll be adding more and more new material (and old when I find it about) over time, so please do feel free to come and have a check back to see the pics. Of course let me know if you might require me to do any of the above for your own projects by contacting me via the forms on the pages, or just use the contact page to email me if you want to get in touch.

For fans of the blog, please don’t worry, I haven’t given up, just been busy getting stuff done and hoping to generate more stuff to put up on here for your entertainment, I really want to get back into focusing on the wargaming aspects of the site as well, so the creative bit gives me ample chance to get making stuff that I hope you’ll enjoy (hopefully!) Of course I’ll still be keeping it real with segments like Crowdfunding Spotlight and I have a few new ideas for regular segments that I think you’ll like as well (but I’ll tell you later…)

Again, feel free to check out the new pages as I’m sure there are quite a few new bits you probably haven’t seen, and I’ll be updating these as frequently as possible to keep things fresh!

Also thanks to everyone for visiting the site in these last couple of years, and I’m happy to let you know that we’ve now hit the 250,000 hit mark, and to me at least this feels like another milestone with the Grinning Skull. I don’t know if this is a lot, but frankly it does to me and I’m really greatful that so many of you have wanted to read my babble over this short time!! So thank you, each and everyone of you that have graced these pages and put up with me!!

Here’s to another 250,000!!!

Scratch built 28mm Zombietown Highstreet up for sale on Miniature bids!

25 Sep

montagezombietown

I thought I’d let you know that reluctantly I’m getting rid of this great scratchbuilt piece over on Miniaturebids. I have decided that I’m phasing out any other 28mm stuff (Apart from WFB) so this has to go. At least it’ll free up more space to build more 15mm stuff, and carry on with my other projects. I’d like it to go to a good home that’ll use it and appreciate it much more than I can, tis a shame yes, but you have to be a bit mercenary when your trying to have a clearout!

Linky: https://miniaturebids.com/auctions/scenery_terrain/28mm-zombietown-street-terrain-2/

It also gives me a chance to try out the whole Miniature bids site and features, so there will be a few other zombie town related scenics going on there too. I’ll keep you posted about it! Of course there will be updates on my auctions over on my Ebay & Sales page too, so don’t forget to check up there as well if your interested in anything I have up for offer on the various sites.

Thanks folks!!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Creative Gamescapes Spaceship X Kickstarter

5 Sep

With only 3 days left on this impressive KS project, I wanted to point this out to folks who might want a piece of the action. This is something I would have been all over, if it hadn’t have been for the fact that the project creator not wanting to ship outside the US. Which is a real shame for the rest of us, since this scenery is quite literally out of this world.

Forget about the accompanying miniatures, this has shades of Necromunda all over it, and will fit any number of scifi wargaming scenarios too. It’s a nice bit of engineering, looking to be pretty versitile with its modular nature.

It really is a kick in the nuts that there isn’t even a way of paying the postage, and I’m sure that they have valid reasons for just shipping inland (Postage is always going to be a pain) but, that doesn’t make me feel any better for missing out on this great set, simply because I am here in the UK. Boo!

Go and check it out if you like, and I’ll try not to act jealous….
