Grinning Skull releasing over twenty new miniatures during May!

Will Grundy is a talented guy with just a touch of the 'green madness' that makes a truly unique sculptor of miniatures.  He is the fellow behind the designs of Grinning Skull a line of figures at Alternative Armies.  Currently there are twenty four miniatures in the Grinning Skull line but this is set to just about double during May 2015 with expansions to the Oggum, the Kize and new creatures and races too!  This is 28mm wargaming fun for many genres from science fiction to post apocalyptic and much more.  You can visit Grinning Skull HERE.

Across May 2015 we will be releasing new miniatures sculpted by Will Grundy into the line.  Here is a list of the new codes and as you can see they are quite wide ranging and rather interesting too!  We are breaking up the releases to do the miniatures justice.  There was a lot of work put into their creation and we want to show them all off in turn.  Here they pictures yet!

The Kize are intelligent and vicious aliens always spoiling for a fight.  Their Delta Soldiers lead the charge and the Kirzor is to be feared for its rending claws.  With their worm like bodies and single glaring eye they have thick natural armour and stand about 24mm tall.

The Oggra is the largest of the pig like Oggum.  An Ogre of great size and strength great for bringing the swill to the foe!

Thanks for Reading,



  1. These are brilliant and the teasers even more so. Im partial to brains with rayguns and birdmen from space.

    1. Thanks and this means you will be one happy guy during May. Wait until you see these mad creations in their metal and resin reality.


    2. Excellent! Those Zargalians sound like they could potentially fit in rather nicely with my Alien Space Brain forces.

      The Chukk might fit in with my avians too:

      I will definitely be keeping an eye out :)
