Collecting Fimir miniatures

With old Gdub pretty much burying their Fimir range, which were already nichely hidden away in the tombs of Forge World, how do you go about collecting a Fimir army? eBay is rife with overpriced classic models, slowly trading hands for ever-increasing amounts of coin.

Fortunately, several companies produce models that are entirely compatible. With a healthy combination of passion and determination, one such company is Krakon Games. Going beyond creating just Fimir miniatures, KG sat down and did the research.

From the mists of legend they come…

I’ve always been a fan of some of the more unusual creatures from the depths of Warhammer 3rd edition. Zoats, were wolves, jabberwock and many others haven’t had much limelight for many years.

I’ve been pleased to learn that the Fimir still have rules under the Age of Sigmar game system, but a little disappointed by how different the Forge World Fimir look compared to the classic models of old.

Triple-game Undead

Over at the Oldhammer in the New World Facebook group, the colonials presented a challenge to paint up 200 points of a new army each calendar month. The points must adhere to 3rd or 4th edition Warhammer. I no longer play either, but I do collect Undead and like an excuse to paint them – so I am going to join in. As the ruleset doesn’t matter to me, I’m going to blog the progress with information for both rulesets for pleasure and thematics – and since I actually use my undead for Kings of War, for that too!

A Fomorian Goll sculpt

For some reason it took a pint of cider and much deliberation to actually just start typing this blog post. When I haven’t posted in a while I start to ponder how to return. Do I recap all that has happened since I last blogged? A bad idea since I’d spend the day figuring out what all that is. No, let’s just keep it simple, current and relevant.

Assembling the puppets – Sorceror of Tzeentch and Tzaangor

In a rare show of progress, I have assembled the Tzeentch Sorceror and spent some time on adding a few starting models to the warband. Here is a converted Cyclops from Heresy Miniatures.

Joining these two heroes will be the forces provided by the Silver Tower. I have begun by assembling 3 of the Tzaangor to test paint.
