    New Photobucket Problems

    New Photobucket Problems! I can currently barely access my PB account (it's DEAD slow) and I can't export any images after I've edited them (not even a simple resize) which is making it impossible to post images online :( I get a weird error message "This license is not vaild for the...

    Reaper Miniatures - Bones Graveyard Expansion

    Frostgrave - Adventures in the Frozen City

    My gaming buddies have been playing a lot of Frostgrave, the fantasy skirmish game which isn't Mordheim reinvented at all, honest... ;) I played a few games with Warhammer minis, and it seems fun, so I thought I'd invest in some minis specially for the game. Although the rules assume that all...

    Mystery Vampiress... can anyone identify this please?

    Found in my mate's "play room" recently. Could be GW but we can't pin it down in a catalogue. Any ideas welcome!

    Coven Throne Build

    As I'm on an ethereal binge, I've started assembling the Coven Throne -well, just the spirit horde mostly. Q1 - I've completely assembled both sides of the horde, is it worth painting it before assembling the two halves? Q2 - Thinking ahead, I want to be able to swap Vamps on the throne...

    Tom Meier Zombie Dragon - How should I use this model?

    One of my ims when working on an army is to rescue classic models from my collection in the loft and get them painted up and used in games. As I have done with my giant skeleton. Here's the next one... The Tom Meier Zombie Dragon from 1985: As you can see from the 8 skeleton warriors...

    Army Painter Sprays

    This is a basic dumb-ass question, sorry in advance! I lazily bought a can of Army Painter Skeleton Bone, and I just wondered can I use it directly as a primer or should I give my models a blast of black / white first? I'm a bit paranoid as I've only used Citadel spray cans for undercoating...

    Rebasing Mantic Skeletons - anyone tried?

    Cracked open my Mantic Skeletons and discovered the basing, with the plastic circle attached to their feet. Not too happy as I'd just decided to put the whole army on home made resin bases. Has anyone tried to cut these guys off their little circles, and if so is it a sensible thing to do or...

    Someone was doing something about roses...!

    Hi everyone, last summer I was on the forum looking for VC ideas, I remember reading some stuff someone had written about roses, I think possibly about a ruined castle in Sylvania? Darned if I can find it now. If anyone can point me at this thread I'd be grateful, thanks! It may have been...

    Vargheist / Crypt Horror Bits

    I haven't looked into the new MI for my upcoming army yet. But I'm wondering what bits are left over after assembling Vargheists from one of these boxes? Anything useful like spare heads and arms, or are the Vargs basically the Crypt Horrors with wings? Hopefully there's something I can use...

    Forgeworld Carmine Dragon

    Has anyone considered using the Carmine Dragon and it's scythe wielding rider as a Vampire lord on Zombie Dragon? (Obviously, you'd need a serious lottery win first!)

    Just some broad advice please!

    I'm about to start revamping (!) my old VC army, and I'm funding it by selling off a lot of my naff old rank and file models, and some classic characters. My new army will be based around the Coven Throne and a bunch of other pretty vampiresses from various manufacturers. However, at the...
