Fury of the North 18

A new entry under the Fury of the North heading this evening; not Vikings this time but their descendants, the Normans.


Four recently painted Normans that are the start of a four point Norman or Early Crusader SAGA warband. The figures are all from Wargames Foundry and are on the smaller side of 28mm.


For their age these figures are still great sculpts and were a pleasure to paint. Good clean sculpts, well cast and exceptionally detailed.


Another four are waiting in the sides for the painting Challenge to finish so that they may be started.


More finished work to follow shortly.

Cheers for now.

Fantasy Heroes

During the painting challenge some Ranger types for fantasy skirmish gaming have been getting painted. To compliment these the figures below have been rebased to the same style and standard. 


All are from Citadel and there are from left to right, Aragorn, Aragorn, Ranger of Ithilien, Ranger Ithilien.


These were painted between 1989 and 2014 as some have been stripped back and repainted.


More in a similar light to follow shortly.

Cheers for now

Back to the Brushes 126

This weekend saw some good progress on a few different ongoing projects with considerable work on the Undead army for Hordes of the Things or any other system for that matter.

The army rises from the undercoat
Figures are from 15mm.co.uk or Alternative Armies as they have re-joined recently and are totally suitable for this scale and period. Very easy to paint and will look good when fully finished.

22 month old hand of terror stopped just in time

All of the infantry stands are now waiting on flcking before completion leaving only two cavalry, a war machine and this little beastie below.

Witch King of Angmar?
Hope to have more work in progress pictures and completed items soon

Cheers for now

Back to the Brushes 125

Been a bit under the weather the last few weeks, well we all have really which has meant nothing serious getting done on the hobby front during this time.

So here are the pictures taken before the onset of the family lurgy


A new edition, the Hellcat from MMS Models. A heavy all metal pieces that will hopefully be complete by the end of challenge. Pictured next to him is the Curtgeld figure from the Penda vignette from Gripping Beast. Might have to paint this set again in the future.


A Sexton from Britannia Models, not a challenge piece as it was originally start some years back.


Three more Mk II Carriers that are a bit further on than shown as are the Heavy Plasma cannons shown below from Ground Zero Games


Originally started for West the Rangers of Ithilien will have to muster for characters from a book theme.


There you have it, best part of two weeks out of action and very little to show for it.

Hoping to change this over the next few days.

Cheers for now

The Dance of Bronze 14

A tale of two scales.

First up are Greek Light  Cavalry from Rapier Miniatures in 6mm. Based for ADG and a test black undercoat as opposed to white undercoat. The jury is out on this at the moment.




Next is a casualty figure from Immortal Miniatures (now Warlord Games) in 28mm. Based for use as a casualty marker in Basic Impetus or Impetus.




There will be more from this period throughout the year

Cheers for now
