Fantasy Egyptians in 10mm

First force of lockdown an new-old project - Pendraken Fantasy Egyptians that will become a Siatic Egyptian army for MeG

I based up the Stargate

Chariotry and generals/mages done, this was quite a job.
The batch

All archers had loincloths and head scarfs fitted, all mummies had their hands drilled and spears fitted. Chariots are actually Elven, and have had their yolks extended.
Red squadron

Blue squadron

It's a smaller squadron as the army only has ten chariot bases.

First stand of foot archers, need to order a lot more and convert them!

A stargate, that will form my army baggage element (thanks to Drew at Studio Bergstrom for this)

What else could I use as my baggage

Either generals or magic users (if I use them for fantasy MeG), two with various Pendraken items added to bases, and one with spare converted archers.

This also reuses my original mummies from the army. Seniority has its privillages!

The army, so far!

Line linfantry update! Ordered some extra 'Pharoahs undead tomb guard' from Leon, and now I have my two units of average Egyptian spears.

The present batch

The four extra stands for my original units, taking them to six stands.

 The new unit, night and Anubis themed. Was two figures short (coz I can't count) but added a casulty figure to fill the gap!

Marching under the desert sun.

All the infantry at the moment

And teh whole army so far, this will expand shortly! Four TuGs done.

Old Glory 10mm Egyptian light cavalry, acting as Medjai*. A gift from a friend as he could not use them.

MeG has a catagory of 'flexible' for troops that can switch between skirmish and formed troops. Here they are deployed as light horse skirmishers.

Deployed as formed

(oh come on, Medjai, they're cool, I looked at the one historical source for fantasy Egyptians, The Mummy [1999], hence the dark grey uniform nature of these guys)

These are a lovely little range, buried in the Pendraken catalogue, so beautiful sculpts.

Slight rebase/additions to the units, ready to annoy serious MeG players as these are going to become a 26th Dynasty list.

Annubis warriors rebased (one base) and five more bases added,

I added the blue war crown and longer cross braces on the chariot.

Eight originals rebased, and eight more added.

Pharoahs Undead Tomb Guard: The blue has not really shown up.

Hausa Project - converted War and Empire Arabs

So, a new project begins, is nearly finished!
Hausa Kingdoms.

So, who is this lady?
She is Queen Amina, an almost legendary queen of the Hausa kingdom of Zaria. Reading about her, she deserves her fearsome reputation, and is the ideal CinC for my army.

With her bodyguard of Khurasan heavy cavalry to act as guard cavalry recreating the scene above.

The shields were an inspired moment of 'hey that looks good'!

These have come our really well.

With her bodyguard.

However, there is no actualy figure that suited my requirement, so I needed a female warrior that I could convert.
After a long search, I found some female Skythians from  Xyston Miniatures ia Scotia Grendel. (The rest of the pack I gave to Paul).

Quite different from what I needed.

Mortal Gods

Footsore recently released this rather fun game, based around 28mm skirmish fighting in ancient Greece. Tried it at Campaign, then got a set for my birthday from Manny and Rob at Boards and Swords.

Turns out Ray also has Mortal Gods! He asked me to paint his stuff, who was I to deny him?

Ray's Heavy Hoplites and heroes from the core set, plus a Medium Promachos because I like the figure, I bought it twice and this one is now Ray's.

The heavies, 4 bases of.

With their veteran at the fore.

As the core set is meant to b etwo faction, here are two sets of commanders, including the Polymachos.

Quite a meaty batch, veteran front and centre!

Now Ray's Athenians are done too. Light hoplites

Heay hoplites, the sun was casting some rather amazing shadows.

Adronikos, the Defender of Athens

The whole Lochos

Well, starting out with an army box, and knowing Ray's love of all things Spartan, I had to go with the feared heavywights of the Greek world.

The whole lochos.

Light spar…

15mm Cathars for Roger

Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius. Hopefully not, I spent ages on these! Roger contacted me and asked me to paint southern French MeG army.He then dropped that they would be the Albigensian Crusade (otherwise known as the Cather Crusade), and then I started to research, this is a lot of fun!  For those of us who love a conspiracy theory, you might remember this screamer!

Roger has sent me some shots of the army fully based up.
They look gorgeous!

Knights, sergents and generals Back rank Foix with Catalonia, Front rank Beziers, Toulouse and Comminges

The foot contingents

The full force, 10 TuGs and 1 SuG, there are also two units of peasants that are amazing that Roger painted previously.

Batch 5, the knights and generals are all done, which finishes the army.

Enjoy, as I've enjoyed painting them.

The whole batch, the deserter at the top I managed to break the ankles of the horse at the last second, so spent today repairing, pinning and modelling new ankles.
