The Gap Plug Project: 20mm Woodland Warrior Mice from SLM

Way back I acquired a rather large haul Woodland Warriors from Splintered Light Miniatures in the States.

Many have been painted, but the vast majority remain unfinished. So as part of The Plug the Gap Project I decided to finish off some logical chunks that would at least allow for some ‘battle’ level units to be fielded. First up, the Mice.

A handful of these were done years ago – see this post – and just needed rebased. Now a total of 34 mice. The nasty vermin rats were done last year. Same post has some useful scale comparison shots for those intrigued. David at SLM now sells these as ’28mm’ as opposed to 18/20mm when I bought them. To be honest, they will work at any scale – just depends on what size your think these anthropomorphic creatures should be… personal choice.

Mini Update: Reinforcements for the Demonworld Barbarian Hordes

In the back ground I’ve been slowly working through my large stash of the brilliant Demonworld barbarians – the Warlords of Thain – available from Ral  Partha Europe.  Easily among the best 15mm fantasy available today.

This is the ‘Eagle Arrow’ Ballista which should add a few options to a Dragon Rampant or any other army list.

Halloween Special: A Medley of 28mm miniatures

When I say “Halloween Special” I do think the Zombicide Abominalpha is pretty monstrous and suitably ‘horror’. Likewise the two pistol wielding miniatures look very ‘Van Helsing-like’ to justify the otherwise loose use of the Halloween phrase in the post title.

That aside, these are a ‘random’ collection of miniatures that I decided to paint up – random in the sense that over time there are certain miniatures in your collection that frequently pop in to your mind from time to time, almost asking “Why have you not painted me yet?” These are a few of the lucky few that I actually decided that they had been waiting long enough already.

First up, the Zombicide Abominalpha from Black Plague. In the first picture next to a standard size 28mm from Hasslefree Miniatures.

The Gap Plug Project: Swelling Undead Archer Ranks

I’ve more recently gone back over my collection with a view to plug some gaps – that might be a troop type for an army or in this case, expanding upon existing units so that their numbers tie in with the likes of Dragon Rampant unit sizes.

So, some fairly generic Undead Archers. Mostly from Alternative Armies, a few Splintered Light or Khurasan and some from, I think, TSR Battle Systems.

15mm Fantasy – a Kaleidoscope of Unrelated Fillers

Sometimes a little change is as good as a rest they say. This medley of 15mm Fantasy are such – often ‘unconnected’ miniatures I pick up to paint between slightly larger tasks or projects.

As a result there is no theme here beyond ’15mm fantasy’ and having said that the Big Cats are clearly non-genre specific but the intent was as roaming creatures for 15mm Frostgrave.

A Demonworld Empire Battle Mage/Magician. Tried to make the staff glow. Hmmm. He’s painted up to accompany these guys.

Mini Update: A Cabal of Vampires from Splintered Light

These rather sinister fellows are small in number and intended as the core of a skirmish force for the likes of Frostgrave, Song of Blades and Heroes or similar skirmish level games. Obviously they can do double-duty as a general and heroes in an undead army.

They come from Splintered Light Miniatures.
