Out for an Ambull

Mummy Ambull with two Bore Wyrms

Not much to say about this one except that I painted this Ambull figure from Blackstone Fortress as set out in the instructions and it worked reasonably well.  The monster is an interpretation of an old monster from the Rogue Trader era and I've always had a soft spot for them. 

I worked quite hard on getting the skin tones right

The "glowing" hive things were tricky, but I'm really pleased with how they turned out. 

The drybrushing on the grey skin worked out well

Cute little clawed horror

They look just like their mummy

Ready to munch some explorers


  1. Very nicely painted CK, but I do miss the days of your old C&C battles in the War Room complete with Port and Cigars :) I know how having young children changes ones life though, busy, busy, busy!

  2. That turned out well - what are your impressions of Blackstone? Some terrific figures in there.

  3. Conrad, old bean! I've wondered how you were. Good to hear from you. Scary looking figures with a decidedly Lovecraftian feel about them. Great stuff!

    Best Regards,


  4. Blummin good painting!, your hard work certainly paid off. I would not know where to start to get results like that.

  5. Lovely, unsettling beast. I have the old fashion one, but I have my eyes on this model too. I love what you did here!
