15/18mm Vampire Hunt

Despite having no immediate need for these on any of the projects I’m juggling (lots) I still felt the need to paint them up as they featured in a hoard ordered from Blue Moon.

The vampire himself if a bit rubbish I admit. Not a large amount of detail to play with.

10mm Warmaster Ogres – make great 15mm “Uglies”

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).

15mm Ral Partha High Elf Chariots

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 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.

Another host of 15mm Dwarves from various manufacturers

There is no particular reason that I can put my finger on. Dwarves are pretty cool but deep down I can’t say I’m a massive fan. But I always seem to shuffle them to the top of my painting queue. Whilst Dark elves are uber cool and Centaurs are cooler still. Dwarves? Not cool in the same way. Maybe it’s the combination of ‘some cool’ with ‘quaint’. Maybe that homeliness that makes you think that they’d be fun to sit down with and share a drink. Just avoid the short-arse jokes.

15mm Horror Werewolves from Blue Moon

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’.

See them here.
