Rohan Had Come At Last.

The Rohirrim are ready to ride! After a long spell of burn-out, I've finally finished these boys. Great figs by Musketeer Miniatures. Go get some.

Next up on the plate are some 28mm winged hussars that I'll use for another fantasy human cavalry unit and some type of human infantry which I haven't decided upon just yet. Stay tuned and I hope all are having a happy Festivus season.

Hail Caesar Fantasy Game

Last night we threw just about everything we had onto the table just for the hell of it and it turned out to be a fun time. It was an allied greenskin and skaven force facing off against hardy dwarves with some manlings along for the show. The fighting was fierce with both sides committing their generals at every opportunity a result of which two fell in glorious battle.

We played the rules as written for the most part. All but two units were classed as standard size and were between 100mm and 120mm wide. For the unit values we took the base stats from the book and knocked 'em around a little and called it done. Here are the rosters we came up with if you're interested: Good Guys and Bad Guys. For magic we used the rules and spells from Battle of Five Armies. The Bad Guys fielded a goblin shaman and the Good Guys a dwarf rune priestess.

I took a lot of pics of the game but only a few were of any worth unfortunately. Note to self: get a frakkin' tripod. Enough jibber-jabber. On with the pics!

First up is some of my friend's stuff.

Goblin slaves

Mercenary spearmen and archers. Feast your eyes on the hand-painted shields and banner.

These dwarf dog handlers did a number on the skaven forces.

Dwarves from em4 Miniatures

Lord of the Rings dwarves. Again with the hand-painted shields and banners.

Great looking ogre standing over some poor unlucky fellow.

One of his orc units. Again minis from em4 Miniatures and converted to hell and back.

Most of the fighting took place in the centre as the Bad Guys had trouble activating their wings for a couple of turns.

A deployment error on my part was saved due to the wolf riders unable to activate the entire game.

A view of the right where the skaven refused to advance until they were damn well good and ready. When they finally did, the dwarves waiting for them sent them packing.

Bad Guys

Tomorrow is the big Hail Caesar Fantasy bash and I've been busy with my contribution. Between a friend and I, we have a ton of units to throw down. Later I'll post some pics of the Good Guys, the game and some of my friend's work as he's one talented individual.

Here are a few not-so-hot pics of some of my stuff.

First up is the warlord.

Where would a lord of war be without cannon fodder? This guy was speed painted. Just base coated and a wash. Nothing too special...

Now give him 89 friends. Thank the gods for eBay.

It ain't a Bad Guy party till the greenskins show up. Speed painted, as well. I think I'm getting lazy...Figures from Sgt Major Miniatures.

Riders of Rohan

I've returned from my adventures up north and the painting is in full swing once again. I'm currently on a fantasy kick as I work on knocking up some orcs and goblins for my dwarves and that of a friend's to bash around. Rules of choice: Hail Caesar Fantasy.

Here is the beginning of a cavalry force to aid the dwarves in their genocidal war against the greenskins. Excellent figures from Musketeer Miniatures painted in the style of Rohan.
