polish infantry

So I was doing a periodic clean up and organizing and lo and behold I found a bunch of polish infantry I had painted up. I think I had moved on when I realized I still had to paint the artillery and then base all of it. With my old basing method it would have…

hellian rhino riders

I just finished a new unit for my 15mm fantasy army. These are Battle Valor Games Hellian Rhino riders. If it is not clear let me state up front, I prefer fantasy that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Don’t get me wrong I grew up on ‘the Tolkien’ and still love the books and would…

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,…

stripping ur minis (while cleaning the airbrush)

Inevitably over the course of a hobby infused life, mistakes are made, new ideas are to be tried and old abominations are too be expunged. 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.…

Summer is here and so are my new units of Daylami Hillmen! These are Forged in Battle 15mm miniatures from the War & Empire range, Sassanid Persian Daylami Hillmen code WE-PS09. A great set of figs, lots of poses (7 plus standard bearer), easy to paint, look the part, really top tier stuff. I did…

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…
