From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
I’ve been drawing inspiration from painted miniatures more than anything else recently, so that will dominate this Inspiration update. So many great painted miniatures out there!
Scenic army boards
I’ve been getting more interested in the idea of scenic army boards that host a force while also serving as a diorama. The best one I have seen is the swamp elves, posted on Reddit recently.
This is a great example of a more sinister take on the elves, and you can find some close up images as part of the Imgur album.
Many of my fellow bloggers have posted interesting goblins recently, and I like them all.
First is Jos at Shin High Terror, who produced these among many others:
You can see more at Shin High Terror.
Next comes goblins from Wudugast, a great take on the 6th edition Warhammer plastic goblins.:
See more of these great goblins at Convert or Die.
The goblin rush continues with Subedai’s goblins, looking like goblins who have emerged from the caves for some recreational raiding.

Azazel has set another great topic to get bloggers painting for September. This month the community painting challenge is to find a miniature (or miniatures) you started once but never completed, and this time finish them off! My entry will be these bats from Warhammer Quest, which I picked up back in 1994:
Hopefully they will look different to this before the end of the month!
To celebrate all the goblins I’ve been treated to recently, here are more goblins in art form, this one illustrated by Lucas Svedberg for the 9th Age miniatures game.
