  1. West Wind is currently running a KS for some Weird WWII mechs, which means I'm currently obsessing a bit about WWII mechs...but I don't currently own any. But I do have one of their tanks from their Berlin or Bust WWII line, the PzKpfw IV H with side plates. (For those not in the know on WWII German tanks, a group I include myself in, but did some googling, that's really it's name, short for Panzerkampfwagen). Not really sure why I picked up this one, other than I wanted a tank of some sort.......a year or 2 ago.... Let's see what's in the package. Ok, a lot of pieces. I recognize a gun....and tracks, and a turret. And what are apparently side plates....and a commander...well, half a commander.... After looking at a few pictures it seems all the straight bits and angled bits are bracing for the side plates. Some of those other bits, might take some searching to identify. So, having never done a tank, or anything approaching an accurate historic military anything, I'm hoping for some suggestions on how to proceed, what some of the bits are, colour schemes, etc. And while I do have an air brush, it is currently not set up (as my new painting room isn't set up for it yet) and I'm not really comfortable using it yet anyway...... So, painting it could be interesting.
  2. This time, we have a themed group. I wanted to added some more members to my Arabian Nights themed forces, with intent to use them for RPG encounters and a Frostgrave warband. Last time it was mostly Reaper's "Legends of the Sands" boxed set, this time it's a variety of sources. The group: "Nabin, Desert Ranger" by Reaper: "Rasia, Bladedancer" by Reaper: "Watchers of Karna" from GW's LotR line: "Revolting Peasant" by West Wind Wargames Foundry: "Corsairs of Umbar" from GW's LotR line: And unrelated to the theme except for being found in the frozen city of Frostgrave, an Ice Toad from a D&D Giant Frog:
  3. Whew, wasn't sure I was going to get this done in time for my August RPChallenge. After doing a bunch of Sci-Fi BSRs I had a craving for something a little more old timey. I've had a box of vehicles for Empire of the Dead sitting there since the kickstarter, so though now was the time to try one. Having never painted a carriage before, or painted a horse before (unless you count mutated goblin steads, I did do a unit of Ugu's Cavalry for Clan War once) I went with the "easiest" one, with only 2 wheels and one horse. Now when I started I knew there was a driver, but I didn't realize there were passengers in the carriage when I was estimating how long it would take.... Anyway, it turned out better than I expected, and final assembly wasn't quite the nightmare I was worrying it would be. So I'm happy. WIP here.
  4. The source of my recent Noble Knight impulse spree, I'd been looking to complete a set of Arabian Nights style adventurers for encounters and skirmish games such as Frostgrave. Reaper's "Legends of the Sands" boxed set seemed perfect, and Noble Knight had it both in stock and on sale. A perfect time. You may notice the set is incomplete; I already had the Jafar type sorcerer painted from a solo purchase, didn't care much for one of the Warlord pieces, and grew frustrated with the Assassin and set him aside. There's also a few Thugs who come as back-up from West Wind...they'd been in the collection for years and fit the theme. The party as a whole: The Sheik: The Garishly Garbed Guard: The Colossus: The Pirate: The Wise Man: The Thief of Thieves: The Princess: The trio of Thugs, via West Wind:
  5. So, for many moons, and mostly during my "Reign of Winter" campaign, I had been looking for a kit of basic stereotypical witches. The West Wind/Old Glory/Ghost kit "Story Book Hags and Witches" seemed the best fit, however, very few merchants had them in stock in the USA. Someone pointed me toward Noble Knight's recent sale, and I found the blister still in stock! Surprisingly, it was a coven of four! I had always assumed witches came in three, even in inventory. So, to start, we have the Coven as a whole: A Hag pointing the group towards mayhem: The grunt(ilda) bearing spell ingredients: A cauldron plus victim, useful for so many adventures: A broomrider bearing a familiar: And the fourth, another witch taking to the sky:
  6. My exchange partner for the 2015 Fall Exchange was Tarsemina. Steampunk was the first thing on her list, and something I quite like myself, so from there it was just a matter of picking a Reaper fig that spoke to me. This figure is awesome, although she needs a real name, something besides, "Mad Scientist (female)" . As a proper mad scientist on the dangerous streets of London (I've been readying the background book for Infamy lately...) I thought she needs some companions. The dog is an Infernium Hound from West Wind's Empire of the Dead line. And her adorable "porter" is Stonehaven's Scrapbot (one of my favorite figs, which may be why I have so many...). The base is a 50mm cobblestone resin base, also from West Wind's EotD line.
  7. In between all the minis come from Kickstarter, I managed to get some work done on pieces already in the collection. First up we have some more historically accurate Barbarians; Vikings from Wargames Foundry.
