Elf Lord and His Pal Griffon

This guy was fun to paint. It must not be too popular in GW's fantasy game because ebay is littered with these things. Best six bucks I've spent in a while.


A group shot of the elf contingent so far. I've got another ten archers on the desk and we'll call 'er done for now.

Rat Ogre #2

This finishes the pair of rat ogres I have for my Skaven army though I think I'm going to add another pair at some time in the future. Next for them is to find a few suitable hero models.

Elf Heroes and a Big Rat

Three elf lords to lead their forces by glorious example.

A rat ogre to chew though the Good Guys. We're gonna need a bigger mousetrap...

Fireforge Games Foot Sergeants Part 2

Here is the first of the crossbow-armed units. The box provides a good assortment of weapons and bits and I built four units, each of 12 models: two units with hand weapons and two with crossbows.

Also cleared from my "finish this damn unit, already" pile are these Arthurians from Artizan Designs. I have ten more to do and will probably use them all as a single unit for that sweet spear-block look.

The movement tray is from Sarissa Precision. The trays are great and can be ordered with the bases to slot in. Easy-peasy. lemon-squeezy.

Westwind Elves

I've had these sitting half-painted on my desk for ages. You can't have fantasy battles without some of that famed elvish archery showing up for the party so I finally got them done. Another chip is knocked off of my lead mountain.

Fireforge Games Foot Sergeants

These are the first of what will end up being my human army for our fantasy wargames. I've split the contents of the box to make 24 boys armed with hand weapons and the the other 24 with crossbows. I'm not a fan of building plastic minis but these were pretty simple to put together and even easier to paint. Good times.

Hail Caesar Fantasy Part 2

Having driven off the Evil ratmen and greenskins at their initial meeting, the forces of Good pursue them down the valley. The Bad Guys have burned and pillaged their way south and have taken a time out to sack a peaceful little village. Mustering reinforcements from the valley along the way, the Good Guys form up for battle. It will be Men who bear the brunt of the fighting this day.

Villagers come out to watch the battle.

The lines approach.

Clash! Here fell Gwynfor where the fighting was thickest, sword in hand and wounds to the front.

Ratmen assume open order and attempt a flanking move through the wood but the dwarves are there to stop them.

The greenskin right has crumbled and soon after their centre followed suit, leaving the way open for a swift and welcome liberation of the villagers.

Heavy Gear

My buddy lent me the rulebook for this game and that was all it took. Nice figs, easy to paint and hella pricey. Good unit deals on the DP9 site, though. Expect some 5-on-5 action in the near future.
