State of Leviathan and 2021 Hopes


Gosh, it's been another year and very little progress has been made on Leviathan which has been a bit of a disappointment for me as I had hoped to get myself moving with the success of the Dragonbane rider from April.

As always, Leviathan is that most elusive of hobby goals, one that I dearly wish to make a go of, but fall at the first hurdle. My previous attempts have always resulted in abject failure too and it has got me to thinking that maybe I have been approaching things the wrong way and instead of trying to collect a warband and paint it up, I should aim for something a bit more scattergun but fun.

With this in mind, I have decided to lower my aim and simply paint something Leviathan related every month from January to December and post my progress here once a week as I love the figures, the setting and even the rules but just cannot seem to get my head around army collecting and painting. Hopefully this way, I will have something interesting to post on a regular basis, be it a single figure, a monster or resin scenic item or heaven forfend, an actual unit!

For the most part I hope to use the original figures where possible but if I find a suitable proxy, I will use it as there are some gaps in the range that never got sculpted. It will also be fun to paint up some odds and ends that I have lying around and not feel the pressure that it doesn't fit in with the specific force I am supposed to be working on.

To date, I think this is the only blog that is dedicated to Leviathan and I don't want it to go quiet again so we shall see how I get on in my project and who knows, I may even make a bit more of a go of it this time around so watch this space!


  1. Good plan!
    Sometimes it's easier to just eat the thing in small bites.
    Curious to see what you might find for proxies, there's a lot of great figures available nowadays.

    1. There's loads to choose from! I actually have a handful of the old Rackham miniatures to bulk up my Orcish warband but will need to work up to them as they're a bit detailed!
