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.

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.

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.

Mini Update: Trio of 15mm sci-fi or post-apocalyptic

I gave up! I was trying to re-identify these miniatures, being sure they were from Khurasan Miniatures, but couldn’t find them on what can only be described as an archaic website. (Confirmed location and name thanks to 15mm Sci Fi Gaming group on Facebook – they are Khurasan, Brunt Herd Mercenaries found under the Cult of Andromeda.)

Anyway, these two Rhino ‘aliens/mutants’ would be great for any science fiction setting or a post-apocalyptic game. The accompanying human is a random chap I decided to paint up with the same colour palette at the same time. I think he is Alternative Armies/Laserburn… getting old. (Also confirmed, part of the Asgard range.)

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.
