About the Project

My attempt to paint a copy of the Blackstone Fortress game. I had intended to have all the expansions and the extra miniatures from the Annual and White Dwarf but as I missed out on two expansions and one of the card expansions I completed the sets I had.

Full Selection..... AlmostFull Selection..... Almost

So this project has been languishing for over a year. I bought the game in September 2019 and painted the heroes pretty much immediately. I then decided to paint the enemy groups in order of how they appear. So to begin with I painted the Elecroflagellants, Ur-Ghuls, Splinter Drones and Traitor Guardsmen. We played several expeditions in early 2020 but this of course ground to a halt when the Pandemic hit and I really lost interest in painting the rest as I wasn’t going to be playing at all.

I know you can play solo but I just wasn’t feeling the solo game.

At the start of lockdown I decided to replace the bases of all minis with clear acrylic bases. I had previously done a fairly standard sand covered base painted black and drybrushed grey and white. I love the acrylic bases for board games though. I find it criminal almost to hide the beautiful Blackstone Fortress artwork under a standard plastic base so, they had to go.

This is the finished product now. I missed a few expansions and have recently sold the whole collection to someone who will get a whole load more use out of it than me.
