15mm Fantasy heaven with some Dark Elves

I openly admit to having a very large soft spot for;

Add all three together and you have these beauties. I liked them so much I avoided the traditional ‘dark’ elf colour schemes and went for a more of ethereal, fallen high elf idea.

The infantry are from Ral Partha’s Blighthaven Skirmishing packs – which are perfect. I have all the released ones so far. No duplicates, decent balance of types and excellent miniatures. I expect a set of rules in the offing at some point to support and boost the concept. I’d buy it.

Arrgh Matey, some Piratical Goodness

Yet another project on the slow burner is a Pirate centred game. I have a stack ready to paint and added a few fantasy elements to make the thing more ‘me’. Also converted a couple of Megablok pirate ships to work with 15mm (or 28mm if needed). More on those later. (I started with two ships that used to be my son’s, gathering dust in the attic – before I’d finished three more were purchased off eBay. No, I never learn).

So I thought it high time I actually painted some of the jolly rogers. For some reason I see the whole thing as a multiplayer game so split my collection in to ‘balanced’ groups of around 8 men each with the intent of painting with a unified, but ‘not in your face’ colour scheme. Go team pirate!

This first crew got dark green and crimson.

For the life of me I’m trying to get my camera to give better field of depth but am failing. I will try and get better at pics. I have set up this ‘stage’ though. Think it works.

15mm Amazonian Warband

15mm Amazon Warriors from Armies of Arcana. Another warband painted up for the likes of SOBH skirmish games. These ladies are well sculpted and clean casting – no complaints there – but they do feel a little static on the pose front. If I had the ‘conversion’ bug I’d do something here. But I don’t.
