Freebooters Fate: Amazons; Paint in progress (Templeguard)



And done, will try and get some better photos when there is more light around, and obviously as per usual the bases are not finished but i'm done with the miniatures themselves, really quite happy with how they turned out though there are bits I would love to fix if I had the skill.

Cheers for reading.

Freebooters Fate: Amazons; Paint in progress (Templeguard)




Something a bit different, as the local club is looking to run a little campaign of Freebooters fate and i've liked the Amazons for as long as they have been released, I bought some and am slowly painting them up.

Pus they could always be used in Lustria Mordheim games anyway


It's very slow going as i'm trying to paint them mostly "properly" without the heavy use of washes, but also the minis are very detailed so lots of little bits to paint in various colours.

Off to Salute tomorrow so will be picking up a starter set for the Amazons as I don't have one yet.

Woodland Lord / Dryad king


Well many moons ago I said I was going to do a conversion basically copying the Oggster's brilliant Enigma miniature conversion of a tree dude. (.
http://maxxev.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/wood-elves-dryad-heroine-conversion.html

Well now I have.


This plus that excellent Drycha conversion I purchased leads me to splitting the guys I had slated for the "wood elves" at least three ways lol.

The warbands will become:
Wild elves (made up of tharn miniatures and other barbarian types (e.g. I purchased some Kelt Sessair parts from Confrontation).

Not sure how the split will be but I also intend on the following
Woodland Defenders
Woodland Avengers

There will likely be dryads in both but are likely to be beastmen in the avengers and Fairies, Satyr, Faun / sprites in the defenders.

Why?, because I can / want to... possibly because i'm a little nuts, I don't know, but i'm presently figuring out how to use this... which is about 8-10" tall excluding the trees on it's head..... hehe

Mordheim Vampire Hunters NPCs: Diedrich's Men


Just  quick update to shop 3 more NPCs that may or may not be found in some scenarios, survivors from the routed Ostermark army

Same as usual parts list, greatsword heads, militia arms, with the exception of the greatsword who has one empire captain arm and a hand from a flagellant, torsos are from empire pistoliers but I push moulded 2 breastplates as I am running low on that torso, the back of those two guys is an empire militia torso (with the straps to make it look like they are holding the breastplate on). Cadian legs of course and 30mm "DS" style bases. Still need some kind of pommel for the end of the greatsword and some greenstuff work, particularly around the necks.

Still have to do one more spearman and a handgunner. Technically the halberdier isn't in the Wargame weavers roll for possibilities.... but if it's an empire army, there would have been halberdiers! lol.

Something new.... Swamp things


Yes, I know I should be finishing one of my many, many work in progress warbands but... well the muse made me do it.

Group shot of the family of swamp things

Thse two are Wyrd miniatures Waldergeits (forest spirits) 


This guy is converted from a wyrd miniatures metal bad JuJu mire golem 

Keep forgetting to paint that bottle.... :(


 And this is the old GW Albion fenbeast, I was hoping to get another one of these to convert but... well i'm REALLY not made of money and I missed the one that went for a reasonable price on eBay (sad face). I bought this one about 10 years ago in an LGS closing down sale in Horsham when I used to live there,.

Skaven Clans:Updated Paint in progress


Put some time into this guy, just need to finish off some highlights, I really love this model from the old Warhammer starter set, way better than the rat ogres you buy in the standard rat ogre boxed set.


Also started on the 2nd black skaven for the Eshin warband.

Mordheim Vampire Hunters: Forces of Undead: Grave Guard Seneschal


Finally got around to putting some paint on this guy. Seriously unimpressed with the quality of the finecast piece though (the chest and left arm) it made it quite maddening to paint and at certain angles the figure looks a bit rubbish, but whatever, it's done, one more off the desk into the cabinet (until I get around to doing all the basing)

Undead specter & wraith


I had to use the specter to prop up the wraith in this photo.
Just a couple of "conversions" I finished recently, these were cut out of the Mortis engine GW kit, it took a LOT more work then I thought it would to get them lookin good after all the hacking lol. I started with Procreate, then there is a little greenstuff in there and then some liquid greenstuff to finish off, they need a little light sanding with some fine grit paper and then ready for undercoating.

In time I hope to use the rest of the spirit host these were cut from...well as a spirit host and the knights from the host as some kind of ghost knights, too much work to convert them to black knights due to all the eerie smoke that covers a lot of the detail.
