6mm Iraq/Egyptians

A while ago Ric mentioned he had some Black hawks and that 6mm moderns in the middle east could be an option so I re-purposed my 6mm Soviet kit, got some new bases from Warbases for pickup at York and set about repainting what I have.

The infantry is some old Imperial Guard spares that I had lying around to test colours, I have another 8 vehicles on the table just now and I'll need to buy maybe another £20-30's worth from Scotia to fill it out but with York this month, that will need to wait until April probably.  But it's only 6mm, so it's quite quick to paint and PDF purchase of CWC means that I can start getting things lined up for what I'll need to finish up a decent sized force.

Dux Britainarium

Another part of my purchase from York was some sabots for my dark age forces, I did have everything on ranked sabots which I think was fine for the British troops and their shieldwall. But I liked the look of the more ragged Saxon lines I'd seen from others so I got some skirmish style sabots for them.

Still need to flock the sabots and I completely forgot to get a more skirmish style base for the skirmish archers, but they'll do quite happily.  And just because here's the British forces that they face.

Like everything I need to finish off the Hearthguard (used Late Romans) bases and do their shields.

KoW Elves

We were talking about doing a big game of Kings of War, I already have my Dwarves and we'd need some more 'good' aligned armies to face the massive Orc horde so I had a look at my elves and can manage a 2000 pt force as shown.

I'll need to get sabots made up for everything and I'll need to paint up about a dozen or so models and properly base the rest but with some time to get ready this should be doable in the next month or so.

Eclipse Mercenaries

So giftmas this year involved a bunch of 15mm Scifi figures, a Platoon and extras from GZG of their new sculpt NSL troops.  I also got a platoon and extras from the Ion Age range from Alternative Armies as well.  The first batch of GZG stuff I wasn't sure what colour scheme to go with so I did 4 of them up in the colour schemes of the Mercenaries from Mass Effect Universe.

Cerberus, Blue suns, Eclipse and Blood Pack.

 I settled for Eclipse for the GZG troops and I'll do the Ion Age stuff as a modified Blood Pack. And here's the first couple of squads done. Basing as always will be done at some point in the future once everything is finished off.

Epic Chaos

Another army getting finished off and touched up.  This time an Epic Chaos force, standard chaos force and enough upgrades to swap out to make it a Death guard list.  Although looking at my tags, I don't appear to have pics of either of my other Epic armies, Imperial Guard and Spacewolves.

I might sort out the other two at some point for Pics so I have a complete record.  But next up is painting christmas present of 15mm Sci-fi stuff.

Last of the Cultists and a Birthday Present

Well first up some pics I took  earlier in the month, but just didn't get round to posting them at the time the last of the cultists are done. These are the ones that I tooled up with the Fantasy equipment, so that's Fantasy, Scifi and Modern'ish all completed. These ones also come with some ghouls and a reanimated armoured viking.

 The other picture is awful for lighting, I really don't understand how some come out looking really good and others I just can't get the lighting right at all. But anyway for my birthday this year I ordered these fine miniatures from Matt Slade. All Napoleonic period, all women and all properly dressed rather than the more pinup types I've seen.

In other news I've almost finished the last of my vikings and I've been going back and trying to finish off my old 28mm Dwarf army as I've started playing Kings of War. More of them to come.

Mongols Finished

Well after finally playing in their first game of Warmaster I made a big push to get the remaining Brigade of my Mongol army finished and that's finally everything, painted, inked and flocked.

And a shot of them in action before I got them all finished off. The Skirmish rules in Warmaster Ancients are a bit of a pain to get your head round but using them a couple of times it made a lot more sense.  I think it could get very frustrating very quickly for the opponent but Ric said it wasn't too bad once he'd figured out how to combat the evasions.

Or at least that's them as finished as they need to be right now. I'm sure there will be more joining the ranks eventually, get them brought up to a 2,000 pt army but this was fine for an evenings game.
