15mm Fantasy(I) - The Undead


Despite the lack of content recently; I have been busy painting and gaming, but due to lack of focus I'm not managing to finish anything off to the point its worth posting up here. Saying that I have concentrated long enough to finish off my first of a planned 3 (well maybe 4) Dragon Rampant warbands.

Having always wanted an undead army for which I blame the Jason and the Argonauts movie and GW for making a load of multi part/pose plastic skeletons way back in my gaming youth(24 skellies for £3.95!!), and one day I plan on investing in a decent size 6mm undead army. Dragon Rampant has allowed to scratch the itch for the time being.

First up the non-dead part of my army, my necromancer and his devoted cultists:




Light missiles in the shape of some Skeleton bowmen:


Light foot:


Some more light foot:




Cavalry:








And some more light foot:




Finally the obligatory whole warband shot:


I'm working through an Orc/goblin warband and a warband made up of heroes at the moment, still need to finish off my Pocketquest stuff and made a start on my 2 remaining Blood Bowl teams.

World War 2 - 15mm Project - Part 3 - The Germans


Well this is the painting task that broke the camels back so to speak, after painting almost 100 British with Camo smocks the roughly 40 Germans I had to paint again in Camo tunics sent me over the edge for a few weeks as I just couldn't face doing anymore camo patterns. I still have another platoon and some vehicles to do but the platoon and vehicles that I have finished will do me for now, as its plenty to play Bolt Action with.

So onto the minis, these are either Battlefront or Peter Pig and as per the British Airborne post the Peter Pig miniatures are the much nicer of the two. Battlefronts minis was not overly clear and the poses were dull in the main, whilst Mr Pigs were crisply cast with loads of detail and in my opinion were better posed.

First up the HQ elements:








Next the three 9 man squads each with a slightly different load out as regards MG's:













And finally a few vehicles the STUG & Halftrack are from Battlefront and M/C combo from Peter Pig(I still need to buy and add some transfer for these as yet):








I have currently got a Fantasy itch that I need to scratch, so the Sci-Fi and WW2 stuff is on the back burner for the moment as I concentrate on finishing my Pocketquest stuff and dip my toe into 15mm Dragon Rampant.

An Epic Tale (V)- More Reinforcements

About a year ago a mate of mine mentioned that he had some old Imperial Guard Epic tunnellers stashed away somewhere which I could have. Some time later and after some persistent nagging from yours truly, he turned up with all these:



Not being the greedy type I opted to just take the tunnellers rather than the whole lot. After a good soak in Dettol, they looked like this:

 

And after a quick paint job they look like this: 
 











Back to finishing my 15mm WW2 Germans next, then onto some ore Pocketquest stuff and my unpainted Blood Bowl teams.
