Happy Friday folks, it has taken longer than anticipated, but my Barbarian village from Scotia Grendel is finally finished! They are pretty much stock apart from the addition of a few 40k bits and bobs here and there – I’m pretty chuffed with how they came out. Here’s a photo dump of the whole lot, plus a few bods to give you an idea of scale:
^ 2 sets of ‘Chieftain’s hut with storage tent’, plus the previously completed Elephant skull temple thing in the top photo
^ 2 sets of Barbarian Huts
^ The whole village together
That is quite a set of themed scenery there! I’ve got a ton of ideas on how to tie this lot in with scenarios – I think they work really well with my techno-barbarians as the occupants, but they also lend themselves nicely to Orks (of which I have many awaiting paint!). They would work well for the Book of the Astronomican campaign ‘Wolftime’, as well, don’t you think? Hmmm…. Now that would be a good one to tick off the gaming bucket list! I might even get some 28mm scale dinosaurs to complement the set, get a bit of a pulpy game organised… Many many options :-)
Anyway, I’m glad to have these off the painting desk – I’m aiming to tackle my version of Mean-Machine over the bank holiday weekend, plus I have the start of a new Frostgrave campaign booked in for Saturday night. Hopefully I’ll have an update early next week! Peace out dudes :-)

Outstanding painting, the textures of the huts really come alive! And the various trophies are really effective too
Thanks mate, they turned out ok didn’t they? I’m quite impressed with Scotia Grendal! :-)

Turned out amazingly, the shot of the whole village together is superb!
Dude, you nailed it! I love the bleak colours, textures and what not. I’m looking forward to see them in a bat rep. Well done.
Thanks mate – me too! :-)
Fantastic paintwork my friend. So colourful but drab (in a good way) at the same time.
Thanks mate – just the effect I was looking for :-)
Incredibly tasteful and original work Alex!! That’s what this blog has come to stand for :)
Wow, thanks Migs, what a kind thing to say :-)
What’s one to say when Migs has already said it best? Cracking stuff, the addition of the trophies brings the huts into the 41st Millennium nicely without looking tacked on. Glad to see that an Ultramarine was harmed in the making of this village! :-)
lol – yeah… poor old UltraSmurfs ;-) Thanks for the kind words too – you guys… I’m blushing!
Very cool. Techno-barbarians are definitely a thing now. I’ve been looking at that village for many years, wishing I had a project that justified its purchase. I hadn’t thought of sci-fying it up, works great! I did start (collecting) some Conan-style fantasy barbarians recently, so I might use that opportunity.
Thanks dude, glad it has inspired you! I can heartily recomend this lot – took a bit of cleaning up, but well worth it :-)
Woow! Ultracool!! :0
Thanks dude :-)
I love the idea of adding some techno doohickeys to turn these into techno-barbarian huts. They are such nice models too.
Thanks mate – I’m certainly happy that they look the part :-)
