Quiet but not forgotten.

It has been exceptionally quiet here lately and I thought it was time I waxed lyrical about the wonders of the whole Grymn universe.

In the beginning, Kev sculpted a few Grymn and came up with a very loose back-story about them being genetically made slaves for a superior race...added to that there were a few racial traits and that was about it.

The range has expanded a lot since then and there are new troops popping up every now and again, along with some interesting tech to go with them...like the Walker in my last post...but there is still no real back story and that means that the Grymn can be 'WHAT THE HELL YOU LIKE!!!'

I have talked about Grymn in different camouflage schemes and operating in different environments. They can be assembled in armies, small adventuring parties or even explorer crews. With a little bit of creative thinking, they can be mixed with other races to make mercenary crews and you cane even add some standard Dwarf models, with a little conversion, to give them a more personalised look.

At Salute last  year, they were all the rage for Necromunda gangs and can be used in a lot of rulesets as stand-ins for regular armies (WH40k, Void1.1, No-Limits, Stargrunt...etc...).

That makes Grymn very versatile.

I have been collecting Grymn for a few years now and have put together a few armies, with many more ideas in the pipeline but it doesn't take a huge amount of miniatures to make a hard-hitting little force. With the addition of a walker or two and some APCs or IFVs, a platoon of troops would make quite an impact on the tabletop.


...I like armies and I am hoping to start on my next one very soon. I am planning on taking you through the process from start to finish and posting it on here. From deciding on organisation, bases, miniatures, vehicles and all many things to getting the work done so that I have finished miniatures on the table.

My plan is to build up a force one platoon at a time. I will start with a standard infantry platoon; including the transport and support that goes with it.

It should be an interesting journey...


  1. Heya

    I will definitely be watching this... it's always been the way i approach my own shcemes so i love to see it when other people follow a similar route.

  2. SWEET!!! I'll be watching fo'sho'!!!

  3. I have started :).

    I have a Grymn on my painting table that I have just glued to the base and filled the gaps in.

    Once it is dry, I will paint it, noting the stages and the colours, ready to repeat a hundred or so times :).

    The army has begun :).
