Slaine in miniature – or not so miniature!

I’ve always been a fan of 2000AD. Judge Dredd in particular. But a close second is Slaine, the celtic barbarian hero (link for those not familiar with him).

I mentioned a while back I’d jumped on the 28mm bandwagon and taken advantage of a couple of deals on the run up to Christmas to satisfy my thirst. What better than some 2000AD inspired lead including of course Slaine himself.

I apologise in advance for posting pictures of ‘unpainted’ miniatures but the point of this post is not the painting of miniatures but the scale. I own hundreds if not thousands of 28mm miniatures so know what to expect. But I wasn’t quite ready for Wargames Foundry.

Pictures speak louder than words so, first up Volk the Bastard from Hasslefree Miniatures – as you can see from the photo the spitting image of our hero Slaine. As far as miniatures are concerned quite brilliant. Great pose, sculpting and casting. Scale-wise, just what I would have expected Slaine to be like. Delighted.

All the King’s Horses: 15mm Cavalry, Fantasy and Semi-Historical

Enough of terrain and back to good old miniature painting! As I mentioned in an earlier post these Dark Elf Cavalry (Dar’Kalon Heavy Cavalry)  were taking me an age to finish off. But I did and here they are.

WIP for the New Year: The 28mm Bubble Bursts

I thought a little hobby update for the end of the year – which was a couple of days ago now.

The 28mm bubble has truly burst wide open. If I’m not careful I’ll inundate myself with so much new lead that I’ll be turned off the scale again!

In the last couple of months I’ve jumped on (belatedly) to another KS, made a couple of eBay ‘bargain’ buys and bought new stuff from retailers. Continue reading WIP for the New Year: The 28mm Bubble Bursts

Guards! Guards!: A 15mm Frostgrave Empire warband

The folks at Ral Partha Europe who are looking after the Demonworld range of 15mm fantasy miniatures are doing a pretty good job. Their Blighthaven range of composite warbands drawn from the extensive range available to them make fantasy skirmishing games a breeze to get started with.15mm Demonworld Ral Partha Empire City Guard for FrostgraveTo quote RPE: “The Demonworld range of miniatures are in our opinion some of the best 15mm figures currently available.” I agree full heartedly. There are others out there that are also very very good but Demonworld are easily up there in the top three. Continue reading Guards! Guards!: A 15mm Frostgrave Empire warband

City Town Terrain for Mordheim or Frostgrave fantasy games

I’m not a terribly focussed terrain builder/maker as is probably evident from the end results of my tables. They tend to evolve and acquire increasing amounts of clutter over time without a great deal of consideration for consistency – I’ll mix resin, plastic, card, paper and foam core with 2d and 3d to suit.

The base for this table are 10″ square wooden panels. They were cut down from ‘left-over’ slotted panels used on wooden wine cases that I use as shelving for paints and miniature storage. They have a magnetic sheet covering and on top of that I printed out a portion of Pwork Darkburg paper terrain battlemap. Very Mordheim in flavour.

Some of the buildings and features appeared on another recent ‘Fantasy Venice’ attempt which follows a similar theme to this setup.
