As a bit of an aside from the diorama, which is pretty much done btw, I decided to have a little play with one of Games Workshop’s newer releases – the Wight King. This is a plastic kit – a new style one packed in a blister, and it was an absolute joy to work … More And now for something completely different… a Wight King

I love it even more when people think outside the box… and I don’t mean cramming the largest rock possible on top of the 50mm base and slapping a huge monster on there. Here is an example of something which … More Amazing Duel
