Heavies are finally on their bases.

 Night Spinners Artillery




 Scorpion Heavy Grav Tank





Ongoing project, which saw their first outing last night (2-1 draw), and a brutal amount of close combat vs Graham's Eldar! Yes, civil was definitely uncivil!

What do you do with the bases of the Silver Spears? Well, use them as anti-tank obstacles!

And in action!
Deployment!


My red Eldar are nearest, Graham's are furthest!


 Off table reinforcements!

I was out armoured by Graham, here's mine!

First moves...


 Artillery, soon to be mugged by Graham's deep striking Swooping Hawks!


Mark photobombing our game!

That's the shot I was after! I had two pints, Graham had 1 when we ran out of time!

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.

Second in command, Muhammed Rumfa. Beautiful figure from Khurasan. Flanked by War a…

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.

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.

'Eavy…
