The Gap Plug Project: Demonworld Thain Army Archers

Well – I’ve no more barbarians to paint. Yes, I know there are more out there from Mr Copplestone and I will return to get more one day but I think I will call this army DONE.

As per previous Gap Plug posts, a smattering of existing miniatures have been fleshed out to be complete units that will work with most rule systems.

The Gap Plug Project: Demonworld Thain Army almost completed

Anyone that’s visited here before will probably know of my fondness of the Demonworld range of 15mm fantasy miniatures available from Ral Partha Europe. Easily amongst the best available in this scale.

I also like barbarians so it wasn’t long before I had bulked my collection of Thain warriors a few years back when RPE started selling single sculpts (making the collecting of ‘unique singles’ far more viable).

If you were to dig around this blog you’d come across several post of previously painted Thain. These had been intended for skirmish type games so there was no real logic applied in respect to unit types although I did stylistically link them using an ochre base with a blue-based tartan in some cases. Despite the fact that I am not gaming so much nowadays, inspired in part by Facebook Dragon Rampant chatter, I decided to group the collection in to 12 strong units that could be used for DR. So the photo above shows this logic and 4 warrior units would be the result (and an archer unit still to be painted).

Here is how they panned out.

The Wolf/Beast unit – 7 miniatures above had already been painted that would form the theme for this unit.

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.

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.

15mm High Elf Reinforcements arrive on the field

It had been on my mind for a while to get around to beefing up several of my existing forces for the likes of Dragon Rampant, HotT or possibly giving Kings of War a go in 15mm. Then the ever-charming John over at the Facebook Group 15mm Fantasy Gaming came up with the DR Painting challenge. I’ve already forgotten the terms of the challenge but it has spurred me on a little.

So first up, the High Elves. I was lacking both heavy cavalry and some bowmen. Still need to add more light cavalry at some point.

These Heavy Cavalry are from Alternative Armies (hi Gavin!).

A fantastical take on Faustus Furius chariot racing

Many moons ago I had the pleasure of joining Tim and a host of other gamers at the Falkirk District Wargames Club for what was a rip-roaring and hilariously fun game of Faustus Furius;

“Faustus Furius is a fast and furious, tongue in cheek
table-top racing game based very loosely around the
chariot races of the ancient world and adaptable to
any racing situation.

Designed for 2-8 participants, it allows players to pit
chariots from any culture or period against one
another in a no-holds-barred race to fame and glory.”

Not too long after I decided to paint up a few fantasy based chariots that would compliment those I already had in various armies or collections. The aim was to have a enough races and types to provide for a large game. As I’ve not been able to make the club in a long time nothing has come of this as yet, but here in the wings are the competitors. All 15mm except the Snotling Pumpwagon which is scale neutral if you look at it the right way 😉

Option for the Orcs and Elves to run as teams could be an interesting play.  15mm Fastus Furius Fantasy chariots demonworld Ral Partha Alternative ArmiesDemonworld Thain Chariot15mm Fastus Furius Fantasy chariots demonworld Ral Partha Alternative Armies 15mm Fastus Furius Fantasy chariots demonworld Ral Partha Alternative Armies 15mm Fastus Furius Fantasy chariots demonworld Ral Partha Alternative ArmiesRal Partha High Elf Chariots (OOP I think)15mm Fastus Furius Fantasy chariots demonworld Ral Partha Alternative Armies Continue reading A fantastical take on Faustus Furius chariot racing
