Little and Large


Well my new year seems to be continuing with painting stuff of random scales and sheer enjoyment as I finished another of my 2mm warbeasts, this time a Titanosaur and a 28mm scale Flintloque figure to boot!

First up, here's my Titanosaur:

Titanosaur Wartower

He's one of the earlier of my 2mm sculpts so is actually a bit on the crude side but I had lots of fun painting him up in traditional Orc Horde colours and he makes a good addition to my fledgling force. 


I'm now down to just two figures to paint to complete the mini project which has been really great fun to do and I'm looking forward to adding to my tiny force with some much needed infantry and cavalry which I plan on picking up next month from Irregular!

Next up, here's a better pic of my Necrosaurs:

 Necrosaur Formation

I've reworked the bases a bit so they aren't quite a featureless and have given them some small scrubby patches to break up the base a bit. I'm still not quite happy with the finish but I can always go back to it in the future to tinker with once the whole force is completed.

Next up here's a slightly blurry scale shot of the whole force thus far:

 Orc Horde Building!

I'm really loving the epic scale of the little fellows and am also turning my attention to some of the other inhabitants of Aeroth for inspiration and possible addition to my micro madness!

Finally, here's a quick pic of Stalinov the Lich:

Greetings Mortals!

I picked up Deadloque from Alternative Armies for a bit of a bargain on Ebay a while back and have decided to paint my way through its contents and was overjoyed to find that the figures were an absolute pleasure to work on.

I owned pretty much all the miniatures from Flintloque and it's associated rules back in the day and had painted most of them before moving and getting rid of the lot. I had very fond memories of painting them though and thought that they might fill the 28mm niche that I've been hankering after for the last couple of years.

Their chunky but characterful sculpts are an absolute joy to paint and it's a crying shame that the studio paintjobs shown on Alternative Armies website really don't do them any justice at all. I highly recommend folks pick up a pack and try painting them as they're great fun. It's also worth noting that they are pretty huge too. Stalinov stands just over 40mm tall from the bottoms of his boney feet to the top of his impressive hat.

I've got a second skeletal Witchlander almost finished and will get some pics taken once he's finished but I seem to be really enjoying all things hobby related this year so hopefully 2019 will be a bit of a golden year for painting and gaming!

All the best!


  1. The bases already look a lot better now and I love the titanosaur.
    Happy to see some Flintloque too, I've been interested in the game for a while but can't bring myself to buying another system.

    1. Many thanks!

      I'm quite pleased with how they are turning out. I've picked up some cotton buds which will be getting included as growths of giant fungi to add to the odd base or two as well!

      I'm not sure what possessed me to pick up Flintloque miniatures again after so many years. I'm not even sure I'm going to play the game per say but painting them has been a real salve to my despair at ever painting a 28mm scale figure again as they almost paint themselves!

      All the best!
