After spending a year painting Blood Angels and Space Orks, I’ve finally decided to jump back into something else, namely Warhammer Quest. Specifically, WHQ Silver Tower!
Back in 1990 I picked up Advanced Heroquest, expecting many, many hours of monster-bashing fun…but it never quite delivered. I really loved everything about it, but I could never seem to get a campaign of it off of the ground. I’ve played it a fair number of times, sure, but not as much as say Space Hulk or even Talisman.
I never owned WHQ though, until perhaps 5 years ago, when I managed to pick up two copies on Ebay for a ridiculously low price.
Now HERE was a game!
Everything that AHQ was lacking and then some!
Naturally, when Silver Tower came out, I had to jump on top of it (and later on, Shadows Over Hammerhal)
Anyhow, I’ve needed a break from 40k, so I started knocking out the Silver Tower miniatures.
First the heroes:
…and the monsters:
I’ve been working on these suckers ever since Christmas, I think. Only the Gaunt Summoner and Ogroid Thaumaturge left to go, then Silver Tower is done! (which is more than I can say for my AHQ miniatures)
Whenever the last two are done, I’m switching it up again to WW2 miniatures.
I know the original purpose behind this blog was to chronicle the painting of the Blood Angels army, and I’ll still work on that, but man, I need a break from painting 40k miniatures!
