November 3rd Update

This must be stretching the realms of the possible three updates in a month. So what have I been painting now.

First up are some Barbarians, mainly from Battlezone Miniatures carried by the Terrain Warehouse. These will hopefully come in useful when we play Broadsword Adventures next.

These are 15mm GZG figures to be used in a Post Apocalypse game, still trying to find a suitable ruleset. I fancy setting the game in an alternate 1970s Britain.

The 1970s theme is in keeping with the two cars I've converted so far, a Mark I Cortina and a Humber Snipe. Both are from Oxford Diecast, which although 1:76 in scale seem to suit the 15mm figures. Now just to find someone who makes a 1:76 Austin Princess and Allegro.

Cheers Steve

November 2nd Update

After several months of little activity, I've now managed two postings within a month, in fact within a week. This is one faction I've been working on for a Black Powder/Lace punk game. Most of the figures are Rackham, the one on the right is from the Malifaux range.
This is the second faction for the BPP/Lacepunk game. I think these are all Warmachine figures. At the moment we are looking at using the Gloire rules for the game, but it's early days yet.

This is the final figures for Warwicks contingent in the Towton game. These are Sir Thomas St. Leger on the left and Sir Robert Ogle, Lord Ogle on the right.

This is the completed contingent of Warwick's.
So what's next on my painting board. Well I've got some 6mm Great Northern War Russians undercoated and ready. Also some 28mm Barbarians and some more BPP/Lacepunk figures ready as well.

November Update

It's quite a while, yet again, since I updated the blog. So what have I been up to for the last few months.
These are some GW LotRs orcs and a troll, plus a goblin I picked up which should do as an Ogre. These will come useful for our ongoing Warrior Heroes: Armies and Adventures games. I still have a pile of orcs left over to paint another time. They were all picked up cheaply at charity shops and carboot sales, other than the troll, which I paid full price for.
We are also looking at playing some Gloire soon and these Pirates have been sitting around for just such an occassion. Now I've just got to read the rules, build the scenery....... All the figureas are from Black Scorpion's Pirate range.

These are the 6mm Orcs to join the nations for our Warrior Heroes campaign. Although with the imminent release of 'Rally Round The King', Two Hour Wargames updated ruleset, these may become our new rules. All the figures are Irregular Miniatures fantasy.

Continuing on with the Warrior Heroes armies this is the Altengard force. Again all the figures are Irregular miniatures from their C16th Italian Wars range. The Altengard forces are roughly based on an Imperial German army.

This is my contribution to the Yorkist side of our Towton project and is Warwick's command, as you can see I still have another 8 bases to finish. All the figures for the Towton project are from Baccus.

Finally these are the Protolene figures from Critical Mass Games, the vehicles are by Old Crow Models. We seem to have used a variety of rulesets for 15mm SciFi and still haven't really settled on one yet.
So what's next on the paint board. Well the last 8 stands for Towton will be next. After that there are several backburner project I'd like to start/finish, but more of them as and when they get going.
