Many moons ago I dabbled with Warmaster from the Evil Empire. Some of the miniatures were amazing but having already invested in 15mm Fantasy I wasn’t about to throw my lot in with buying 10mm armies.
However these guys, along with some trolls, grabbed my attention. Brilliant sculpts and full of character. Again, they sat under-coated white for many years. More recently I came across this paint job on Cool Mini or Not and was inspired. “Must paint” kept coming to me as I tried to get to sleep at night.
Although 10mm, next to 15mm they stand as a band of rather ugly human thugs. Which is what they will be in SOBH. That and a boarding party for my planned Fantastical Piratical project (converted Megablok Pirate Ships, etc).
These fellas have been sitting in my to-do-box for a very very long time. I can’t count the number of times I’ve said to myself, “You must paint these – they will look great”. Well, despite the huge pile of lead fighting for attention I finally did commit.
I really do need to brush up on my photography skills though. Clearly the field of depth is off (despite adding a bit of drama).
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.
It’s been a while since my last update so a few batch posts to follow now that I’ve sneaked in a bit of ‘me’ time. Here is a ‘pack’ of werewolves from Blue Moon. I like the variation in werewolf ‘types’.
