Magister Militum Mitanni

10mm Mitanni, all now finished.
A little favoured state in Wargames, wedged between the Hitties, Asyrians and Egypt, one of the first nations to use chariotry en masse under a feudal system, and under MeG quite tasty with skilled bow chariotry, and lots of it! Some is even superior too!

Found my missing chariot that was going into my camp, so here it is!

REME anyone?

Ohh, that will cost ya!

Chariot on its own.

It is now safely glued on.

Here, after a good few months off this project, it the army completely finished. All figures are Magistar Militum, and I've had some fun painting these.

One elite chariot that had escaped last time, taking my elite count to 16.

Six extra vassal chariots. Average chariots to all the MeG fans out there...

Drive by shooting?

'Line' chariots, as good as the vassals, but different crews.

Well, not all are as good I guess! 

Making up a TuG

Generals, you can tell, they have accompanying foot figures.

At present, this unit of  Alik ilki spearmen is surplus to requirements, but if the threatened point reduction for bows appears in the new year, they might well become a viable unit choice again!

Side view, so that you might see the might of the integral archers!

At Mark's suggestion, my camp, a REME workshop, with bar!  The Mitanni can have average fortified camps, usually quite an expensive proposition, but as I have already maxed out on chariots, I thought, well, why not?

Quite happy with how this came out. I will put a chariot on the ramp as some point soon.

A close up of the bar, which Mark insisted should be there, drinkers are modified horn blowers, some figures came from Graham's spares that I had painted for him, some from mine.

The whole batch. Due to chariots being multipart models (two horses, two crew, three part chariot) it felt like a lot more painting than it actually was.

Ignore the spare Wingerd Hussars and steamroller, but this is the whole army, fits neatly into two Tiger Cub deep file cases.

All ready for Warfare, in November! Eek!

2nd batch
9 more elite chariots

And two as they go past...

Either Aweluti qashati archers or Alik ilki archers

Extra Shukituhli

Alik ilki spearmen

Here’s the start of my take on them,

Elite Chariots

Vassels and Line Chariots


 Shukituhli - spear armed protected bows

The random miniatures in my lead pile thread

Hi all, As the months go on, I am finding more random stuff that does not fit into any catagory is creeping it's way up to the surface of my lead mountain. I decided a few years back, rather than just throw it back like one of Nobby's escaped socks, I would actually paint some of them.   Another Grenadier 1984 from Brian's collection - possible Flesh Golem? Pants! Quick job, but fun   TT Combat Halfling adventuers, a barbarian, a fighter, a ranger (with squirrel), a mage, and a bard (with bagpipes) Rough bunch Distancing themselves from the Bard! Fireball!   Really random. Converted GW 1990s halfling on a Ral Patha sheep - a ram raider! There are quite a few more of these to do, but this one fell off the lead pile while I was looking for something else. He will become part of a Dragoon Rampant units I suspect Back view Charge!  

6mm Pony Wars commission for a friend.

Friend asked me to do his Pony Wars kit now that Baccus have taken it over.  Painted quite a lot of dismounted native foot too! Top view Singles Why is there a Squeeze song going through my head. Sneaking up on the cavalry Back view Heading out Pairs The Indians send signals from the rocks above the pass The cowboys take position in the bushes and the grass The squaw is with the corporal, she is tied against the tree She doesn't mind the language, it's the beating she don't need Threes She lets loose all the horses when the corporal is asleep And he wakes to find the fire's dead and arrows in his hats Or something like that Here we go Sixes Top view Left view Snipping or sniping 8s Lefts Backs Right Missed two bases of US cavalry Going that way Ready to go Scouting This is going to end badly for the cavalry   [img][/img] Mounted US troopers for Keith.

Legion Imperialis 8mm - Civitas ruins boxed set.

Terrain box (Civitas ruins) painted up Honestly took me longer to build it than it did to paint! But there may be a reason for that Someone needs a word with their structural surveyor! I mean, the build quality here is awful. At least the marines will have somewhere to hide It's about an A3 of ruined stuff It's been trashed Comes with a lot of scatter  The rest of the club was doing it, so I had to do it!  Looking through the various Legions from the Horus Herasy, I decided... Nope. Don't like them. Stick to what you know. 'Stick 'Em In The Eye - It's the Emperor's Pointy Sticks' So, seven years after I painted the 'Emperor's Pointy Sticks' in 6mm, GW have released Legion Imperialis in 8mm. Marine booster pack painted up, group photos! Mixed bag About 100 extra points on table!  "Did I miss the photoshoot?" *FACEPALM* These are the ones I've be
