Book Golem, the King in Yellow, and a GREAT BIG POILUS!

A few odd and sundry items getting finished up in between batches of Great War Germans

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

Book Golem from Black Cat Bases. It will hopefully see use in some horror game (Fear and Faith?) and/or Frostgrave

The King in Yellow! Well… maybe… Bruce, who DMs our (every other) Friday night Primeval Thule D&D 5E game asked if I had some cultists and a priest in yellow robes… I have loads of these generic cultists that I made ages ago, but none in yellow robes, so I thought I’d knock one off in yellow. I have a bad feeling this is going to end up being The King in Yellow!

Another of my friend John’s Toy Soldiers - a 40mm Great War French infantryman. I actually painted a whole battalion of 1914 French in 40mm for John a few years back – in an earlier, less animated pose. This guy looks like he’s ready to stick to the hun!

Here’s a picture with a 28mm Great War Miniatures for comparison.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Vimy Countdown – 10 weeks to go…


  1. Neat.. I actually painted that exact same Book Golem sculpt last summer, for Frostgrave as well, as discussed here:

    Great minds think alike.

    1. Especially for that library scenario, right? I know when I first read through the book and came across that scenario I though; "Oh, I WILL have to get it painted now so I can use if for that!" Of course I also need something that looks like shelves and shelves of books...

  2. Book golem looks great but my favourite is the 40mm figure- full of elan to overflowing.

    1. He does look quite dashing.

      Thanks Alan!

  3. I like the book golem a lot.
    Cheers, Karl

  4. The book golem is great as is the big french man but I think the cultist has come out best
