Epic Eldar - Craftworld Iyanden

As part of the lockdown and clearing my immense figure backlog, I dug out some Epic Eldar I have had sitting round for a few years.

After considering the forces I had (I already own a Siam-Hann force) I plumped on Iyanden, a doomed craftworld with different priorities.

The main reason I bought Eldar for Epic in the first place (ie early 90s), I love their Titans! I sold my first version in the last century, but an Ebay hunt later...



Note the two Eldar guardians scurrying across the base...

Wraithlords (or Dreadnaughts as we called them in the 90s)


Guardians wit hleader and heavy weapons platforms.

Well, it's one basic platoon, but no armour is scaring me!

Eldar War walkers, an iconic unit, always loved the design!


 

The whole force, so far, sure I will add more soon...

He's a BIG boy!

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.

Picked up these two from Annie at Bad Squiddo games, Thea an Amazon hero, and her fairy friend scouting on guinea pig, because, well why not!


Turns out Ray also has Mortal Gods! He asked me to paint his stuff, who was I to deny him?
Slingers, Peltasts and light hopilites done, which finished Ray's Mortal Gods bits (just in time for Keith's order to arrive)

Light hoplites (shield transfers by Little Big Man & Victrix)




Slingers




Peltasts




A musician, called Jeff




A spare base...




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.

Fantasy Egyptians in 10mm

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

Two bits of terrain/characters for other games. Thanks to Drew at Studio Bergstrom for finding these old sculpts from Eureka for me. Guarding the Stargate!

Really like the way these came out, Jaffa looking mean and moody, or are they painted colossal statutes?

Jaffa are awesome

Jaffa on guard

Bit more work on this army.

Converted 40 Pendrakenskeletal archers to Egyptian archers


Headdresses and loincloths added


Cheeky top view


Unit at full strength with the stand I painted previously


Twang!


These are the guard archers - 48 converted with added headdresses and armour


Certainly look menacing




And on these, with Phil's advice, I sculpted armour


Skilled, protected, drilled archers, yes please!


I also fashioned some wound markers from rising dead and dungeon corpses.




I based up the Stargate






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


All archers had loinclot…
