For a number of reasons, including just living, I've been busy and haven't painted a whole lot... until lately. Since you've invited me into your mind and computer, I'd like to share some of my painting work with you.
|US Paratrooper mortar crew by Bolt Action.|
Done for my son's collection of WWII American Airborne.
|US Paratrooper light machine gun by Bold Action|
|ACW Confederate artillery crew by Old Glory (I think)|
These were a find at the bring'n'buy at Hot Lead
After the weekend at Fort Erie, I can smell the sweat, gunpowder, and hot metal.
|"The Strumpet" from Reaper.|
I generally like these figures and find them fun to paint.
|Rats... by Reaper.|
Since my daughter has two pet rats and figs like this often get used for D&D,
|French Napoleonic Line Infantry by Perry|
I wish I knew why the blue I use is dark to the naked eye and SO bright on camera!
Well, nice figures in any event.
|The entire battalion. There are also six skirmishing figures who are not seen here.|
|Reaper's clay golem which gets used as a what-ever golem for our D&D games.|
Lots of definition on this figure so inking and drybrushing really stands out.
|A Cossack officer for my wife's Imagi-Nations army where we use 20mm figures.|
This is actually a very 'meaty' 15mm WWI British cavalry officer.
|The Elector of Fredonia's mistress, who asked to remain nameless (in case she gets a better offer.)|
A Ral Partha unicorn rider on a Frying Pan & Blanket team horse.
Don't tell Elector Rufus.
|More refugees with a water buffalo|
Another Hot Lead purchase from RAFM's own stand.
|Courier coming in! French Napoleonic light cavalry in 15mm mounted as a courier for Shako|
|Pikemen, some of them Swiss, in 15mm by Old Glory|
courtesy of the Bring'n'Buy at Hot Lead
|Landsknecht arqubusiers - again Old Glory 15s|
Painting these guys is a interesting job to say the least.
Break all your odd colours!
|Landsknecht command stand|
|More Landsknecht pikes|
|Napoleonettes French hussars|
I found these on the Bring'n'Buy table at Hot Lead and they were the buy of the con!
50 mounted figures for $5
|More of the same. I'm now got plenty of hussars and plenty to share with a friend who's building|
a French or French ally army for Napoleonics.
|A French line battalion in field dress - Old Glory 15mm|
|Westphalian Line Infantry based for Shako - Minifigs 15mm|
|Pendragon 10mm Polish Pancerni for either a Polish historical army or a Kislevite Warmaster army.|
|10mm GW Warmaster Orc rock thrower|
|The troll to do the heavy lifting. I was pleased with how he turned out.|
|10mm Pendragon Polish/Kislevite winged lancers|
|10mm Pendragon Polish/Turk light horse|
|10mm GW Warmaster Black Orcs - these are the bigger, nastier, orc-ier orcs|
|Their banner - Orcs can't spell worth a darn.|
|10mm GW plastic orcs from the "Battle of Five Armies" boxed set.|
You get lots and lots and lots of the same strip with fills out an orcish army cheaply.
No banners are included so I do my own... with my own version of English spelling.
|Yeah, more of the same.|
|It actually says "Splat!" in the middle of that splash of colour.|
|Oh, look! These guys can spell, although I think they intended to have the standard say "Victory!"|
|10mm GW orc boar riders in metal|
I decided to jazz up the colours.
|10mm GW dwarf "Hammerers" - some sort of veteran elite troops for the Longbeards.|
|The Hammerer's standard on the left and an improvised standard for a unit of plastic "Battle of Five Armies" dwarfs.|
|My son asked me to paint up some of his Snotlings for his 25mm Orc units.|
There's a lot of whimsy in these figures.
|Minifig 15mm Moscovite Streltsi for her DBR army.|
