Over the last few years I have really managed to tighten my gaming focus, getting rid of loads of miniatures, and rule sets so that I can actually finish projects, and it has worked quite well so far.
However I still get my head turned by nice miniatures, interesting genre's/periods, or usually by adding more units to my existing projects because of my sometimes stupid " I gotta have at least one of everything" mentality.
Which brings me to the bunch of Irregular Miniatures 6mm siege equipment I bought recently that I have no real need for but as I have a reasonably large medieval 6mm collection I thought it needed some siege equipment:
Some Stakes & Pavise's
Siege Tower & Trebuchet
Small and Large Bombards
Siege Equipment & Covered Ram (Barrels from Leven)
I also managed to pick up a 2nd hand 10mm Copplestone Castings Not "Rohan" army which I have been after for a long time now the bundle I bought came with bases, some odds n sods of 10mm stuff and the complete Copplestone Castings Not "The Fellowship of the Ring" and I really cant wait to get some paint on these. This has now got me hunting down suitable proxies for other Lord of the Rings armies and got me working on some Warmaster lists:
The Start of my 10mm Rohan army
Rohan Royal Guard cavalry plus General
Pippin, Frodo, Sam & Merry
Boromir, Gimli, Aragorn, Gandalf & Legolas
This isn't all of them, just the one's I plan on using as crew for the ship
I have even made some progress on my Epic Thunderhawk, and by progress I mean I have actually assembled it and undercoated it:
And for some random reason I painted this 10mm scale eagle!?!
All this has taken my focus from my Epic Eldar army which was coming on at a great pace until the last week or so, still its nearly finished and I think I needed a break after the 190 Guardians and Aspect warriors, only just over a dozen tanks to do and the Avatar:
These just need basing
I'm quite happy with how these Grav Tanks have turned out
One of my Aspect Warrior Hosts
One of three Guardian Hosts
The remaining Eldar and a filthy paint station!
Hopefully the completed Eldar army will be the focus of my next post.
