15mm 20mm Splintered Light Miniatures Woodland Warriors Rats

Ugly, Nasty, Vermin from Splintered Light

Anyone that knows this blog (or me) will know I am a big fan of Splintered Light Miniatures and have painted, more recently, quite a few human dark age and fantasy offerings from them. A long while ago I picked up some packs of their brilliant Woodland Warriors range (technically 20mm but lets not get too picky).

I painted them up years ago – all ‘goodies’. They have been without proper opposition for quite some time. I’ve dipped in and out of the Woodland Warriors and painted the odd one or two here and there but only recently (on the back of a ‘completist’ order made with SLM – thanks David) I painted the bossman for this swarm.

So it was about time a decent force for the ‘baddies’ was completed. A good mix of weapon types, magic user, assassin, hulk, heroes and a swarm (latter not SLM but I think GW) – should do for any decent skirmish warband or the hub for a larger force to grow out from.

(See previous posts about 20mm Woodland Warriors for comments on the adaptability of these guys for use in 15mm or 28mm settings.)

Only 100 or so other Woodland Creatures to paint up…

  1. Great work Jimboba,
    Now I’m seriously thinking of getting some SLM Ratmen as opposition for my Copplestone Barbarians/Northmen/Dwarves.

    Lovely Work.
    Keep it up

    1. Thanks Z
      I am a big fan of the whole SLM Woodland range. The rats will be pretty large and formidable opposition for Copplestone’s sculpts (which I love too, just wish there was more…)
      Note to self – finish off remaining Copplestone minis!

      1. Thanks for the reply Jimboba,
        Do you have any SLH 15/18mm Ratmen ? As you only mention the Woodland range. If yes how do they compare to the Copplestone ones ?

        Note to self – Start painting Copplestone minis! :):):).
        At the moment I’m doing all my mecha, at least trying to. I will first assemble them all, then undercoat , then airbrush basecoat, then we’ll take it from there.

        1. Yes I do. They are a lot smaller than these Woodland rats. The large ogre/armoured one pictures above is actually a SLM rat but of a larger type than the rest.

          He is the only one painted as yet I am afraid.

          1. That mini seems to be one of the personalities. So they would be true 15mm rather than 18mm. Still doesn’t seem too bad for rat men which are usually portrayed as small & scrawny.
