vampirian mounted spearmen

While I have been busy at work painting up the Hellian mounted spearmen I reckoned now would be a good time to show off some earlier work. Therefore here is some of Battle Valor Games 15mm Vampirian mounted spearmen. I don’t quite remember why I replaced the spears with metal, oh well I must have…

hellian mounted bowmen

Just finished a new unit of Hellian mounted bowmen. They are 15mm from Battle Valor Games. The minis themselves are pretty cool, they are break-waist style minis and sadly only come with one horse sculpt. These are the Bluemoon/Old Glory horses, definitely not my favourite. When the horses are armoured I think they look OK…

german ss – plane tree camo

I’m proud to announce a new unit ready for the war-games tabletop. These are some of Battlefronts (Flames of War) 15mm German SS. They are an excellent and diverse set of sculpts probably soon to be replaced by the new pseudo-plastic resin Battlefront has been doing all their new infantry in. I have not tried…

contrast paint test (and a rant)

As previously stated I got some of Games Workshops new Contrast Paints. I must admit to being very impressed and I think the results speak for themselves. The best part is how fast they work. That being said they are not a ‘slap on the paint’ type product. Each colour must be placed very precisely,…

In the distant past stripping minis of their paint was a long, slow, toxic nuisance. Using new technology, specifically an appropriately sized ultrasonic cleaner all those old problems are eliminated.…

hellian bowmen

I just finished painting two small units of bowmen for my Hellian army. They are Battle Valor Games 15mm Hellian Bowmen, code Q2004. Great fun painting these guys. I’m luvin’ the ‘skull-face-paint’ I put on. Since I didn’t think giving them a banner would be appropriate, I thought they needed a little something extra, hence…

german pioneers

I have added a new unit to my ever growing Early/Mid War German WWII army. These are some 15mm Battlefront German Pioneers. I really like the old metal Battlefront models because they remind me of cute little mice scurrying around, causing mischief, blowing stuff up etc. Next up on the painting table is some more…
