15mm By The Fire and Sword Transylvanians commission.

Principality of Transylvania (those ones, not those ones, get your mind out the gutter).

Batch 4:- Ten more bases of Transylvanians (so thirty figures) for Manny, this time Comitatus or heavy household troops.

Heavy lancers. A lot more colourful than the light horse.

As ever, Manny will do his own basing and add flags later.

Lots of cloaks

Quite a sizable force

Batch 3: 30 extra Transylvanian light horse for Manny

Not as bright as others, but these are lower order troops.


Lots of hairy cavalry

As ever, Manny will base these himself.

That way lads!

Player's eye view

At the trot

The force, so far (there's still have a bag of blisters to do)

Batch 2: As ever, Manny will add the flags and his own basing at his leisure.
12 bases of household levy lancers (36 figures, not sure how many units that equates to) for the 15mm Transylvanians.

Only realised when I started processing the images that there was always one lance off background!  :'(

They do look pretty cool en masse though!

Top down view

Lances certainly make a point (I'll get me coat). Once they have flags they will look really impressivve I bet!

Player's eye view, the lances comme with a drilled through ball bearing to make the guard, a clever idea, but just don't drop them, they go EVERYWHERE!   ~X(

Not sure how much of a By Fire and Sword force this is, but it's scary!

15mm Renaissaince (By The Fire And Sword) miniatures, this is the starter 'skirmish' set. There are another 19 blisters and command box to do.

Shooty horsey types

Lots of fur

Clip clop

Dismounted version

Skirmish screen


Variety of poses

Light household troops

Main difference is a few have bows

Scouty types I guess

Off we go!

Heavy household troops - lancers

These were really fun to paint.

They could hurt!

Uniformed - almost

Don't sit in that!


Can you guess where the banner goes?

Tried to tie them into the heavy cavlary theme

There's a lot more to add

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.   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!   From Brian's collection. No idea, on the base it says Grenadier 1984. It's about 32mm tall. A bit WWE, a bit Borat!   Nemisis the Warlock - Khaos; Deadlock; the Warlock; the Shape of Things to Come; the Lord of the Flies; Holder of the Sword Sinister; The Death Bringer One of my all-time favourite 2000AD characters (2000AD

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
