My thoughts on my hobbies, focussing primarily on miniature wargaming and board gaming. I like to paint, I like to theme, I like puns. I make no apologies for what you may read.

Duel of Kings: Day 13
I've got 25 miniatures fully painted. They're not based, however, since I'll be multi-basing. I've gone for a fairly classic look; straight-up fire and brimstone.
I've started to build my bases up out of cork. They'll have lave underneath and otherwise by quite rocky.
Some on the bases. You can see the putty bubbles I've started to apply.
The gargoyles. These troops aren't on cork; instead they're on hexagonal spires made from hex rod. Originally, the plan was to do the whole army on tessellated pavements (so clusters of upright rods to make a platform), but hexagonal rod was prohibitively expensive.
The obsidian golems have been cut off at the shin; I'll have them rising up out of the lava. They're going to get repainted when spray this lot, for consistency. I'll go for a scheme more like the one on the left.
