15mm Fantasy(VI) - Heroines & Henchmen

The painting spree continues, and with an eye on Frostgrave(in 15mm) Five Leagues from the Borderlands and Dragon Rampant, I picked up one of Copplestones lovely personality packs, and they immediately jumped to the front of my painting queue which apart from the first guy are predominately female minis some of which may be considered slightly NSFW

And a female elf from Ral Partha:

And another heroine this time from Crom's Anvil:

And some henchmen for her to lead:

These next minis(AD&D Battlesystems - Cormyr Swordsmen, made by Ral Partha, now sadly long out of production) I bought about 28years ago, they were the first 15mm minis I ever bought, purely purchased on a whim as I thought they were fantastic sculpts(and still do) They have languished until now in the unpainted lead mountain, and as I was desperately in need of some henchmen types I finally took the plunge and waved a brush over them:


And as I mentioned Frostgrave earlier, this is my current warband: Elementalist and Apprentice, Thief, Captain, Ranger, Warhound and 3 Knights

Currently painting some Epic Ork Speed Freeks and some 15mm mounted knights for Dragon Rampant.

EDIT: For some reason I cant respond to comments on this post, so many thanks for the kind words in the comments!

An Epic Tale (VII) - Da Orks!! (or at least some of them)

It appears that I have finally rekindled my urge to paint(after nearly 9 months of meh!), and in a moment of madness I picked out some of my Epic Orks, my only unpainted Epic army(due to their being a reasonably large amount of them!)

Being 6mm I hoped the ease of painting them would help me get back into painting, plus being Orks I can use more interesting colours and don't have to consider an overly uniform look.

I have decided to represent all the traditional Ork clans in my army so I started on the largest of my planned clans the Goffs:

This is the main mob 20 infantry stands plus sufficient transport ( I intend to put some chequered decals on the banner from my Blood Bowl orcs - when I find them)

A horde of Stormboyz with Deff Kopta support

 A big mob of Stomperz plus various Dreadnoughts/Killa kanz and a Tinbot

Artillery support in the form of a big mob of Big Gunz

And finally for the Goffs some armour

All the Goffs.

I then moved on to the Death Skulls clan which is only one mob of infantry with some Big Gunz - using the old Lootas models which seemed apt:

For Blood Axes I used the few Kommandos I have:

Which leaves the Bad Moons (to which I have allocated a similar amount of troops as the Goffs, less the Stormboyz and Stomperz), the Evil Sunz(Speed Freeks) which I have about 45 vehicles to paint up and the Snakebites which are a larger force than the Death Skulls plus a few Squiggoths, so I'm about half way through and have made a small start on two of the remaining clans:

While the entire force is not yet complete, I now have a decent enough Ork army to use whilst I finish off the rest. I am aiming for around 6000pts in total which matches my other armies:

The Orks(so far):

The Eldar:


And the Imperial Guard:

And whilst waiting for these to dry I have been pottering away at some 15mm fantasy which will be the subject of my next post.
