I am behind on my blogging as I have been a little under the weather and, ahem, I cannot sit down without pain!  So blogging is a bit challenging!  The good news (if any) is standing is fine and I have completed a few projects that I’d like to document.

I have made Spell Cards for my fantasy miniatures war game War Must Be.  Among the Spell Cards is a Mundane Spell called Buzz that enables a Wizard to summon a swarm once per game.  Hence, I needed some swarms!

The swarms that I found on eBay are below.

1 Swarms

I don’t think that they were made unpainted but I am unsure.

In the front row, I have two grub swarms (Wizkids), and in the back row there are left to right a rat swarm (Wizkids), two monkey swarms (Wizkids), and a Reaper Vermin black widow spider swarm.  I painted the grub swarms with Citadel’s Dryad Bark and applied a wash with Citadel’s Agrax Earthshade to each.  I also applied the same wash to the others.  Each swarm got an appropriately sized washer glued to its underside so as to be easily stored in my magnetically-lined storage boxes.

In the end it is irrelevant which type of swarm is summoned as they all have similar effects in the game.
