  1. Hello everyone, I’ve been asking myself if this is the right place, but as this project has been the one that kept me busy for most of my recent time and is very dear to me, I would like to present it to you. The whole idea to this was born during the time when I nearly stopped painting miniatures and doing wargaming. I had some pretty bad experiences with some guys and communities in Germany and my overall motivation to do some painting and building stuff was down to almost none. I even stopped writing which normally is my preferred method of relaxin
  2. Last month I held my nose to the grindstone, as it were, and painted a bunch of wargaming units, a dozen figures at a time. This month, I wanted to relax just a little, so I pulled a group of Caesar Adventurers (currently OOP) out of the queue, and amused myself by finishing off a couple of them. I’ve picture them here with Sir Forscale to show how not-big they are, which is why they make look just a little rough when blown up to more-than-life-size on the screen. It’s interesting to me, though, what you can do with a 1/72, if you aren’t in too much of a hurry. These were done
  3. So, I finished off the elf lady to boss the two saprolings at lunch yesterday, and the red witch today. I don’t do much greenstuff work; her broom is especially rustic... The saprolings look more impressive when upscaled; maybe 9 feet in comparison to the 1/72 figures...
  4. I gave my older son a copy of the de Bellis Antiquitatis 3.0 rules for Christmas, and he has been inspired to dust off our joint 2009 project to do Egyptians vs Hittites in DBA. That did entail rebasing some chariots, and it looked like they might look lonely on the 60x80mm stands (vice 40x60 we had been using), so I painted 8 Egyptian infantry to serve as chariot runners and put two on each base when I rebased yesterday. Since I had some unfinished Libyan archers from BITD, I dusted them off and did four as two light infantry stands, to start an opposing army of my own.
  5. This morning I finished off a few 1/72 scale Caesar figures, from their fantasy adventurers and 13th century knights boxes, plus a Bones saproling as a 1/72 tree-thing...
  6. I finally finished the last 4 spearmen for these two stands of 1/72 scale Vikings (the Cold Islanders in my miniatures campaign). On to the orcish army...
  7. I’m on the road; post-Gencon, my muse is informing me that I need more troops for the Portable Fantasy Campaign. I try not to ignore her lest all inspiration leave me, so here we are so far. Most of these figures are from Accurate, with a couple of other makers mixed in. I brought a bunch and don’t expect to run out; we’ll see how far I get.
  8. I was idling yesterday and decided to paint up a few 1/72 scale plastic figures to add to the portable gaming set up I'll be taking to Gencon. These figures are a mix of old Airfix and other more modern manufacturers; I don't think any two are from the same maker or set. I'm not entirely happy with the painting; my hands are steady enough and my magnification is good enough for the size of the figure, but I'm working toward trying to predict/plan/produce the right paint consistency to apply it with a Winsor Newton 000 brush without being so gloppy that it dries on the way to the m
  9. I’ve been chipping away at the 1/72 scale fantasy project this morning, with three Caesar elves and a Maid Marion from the old (sculpted in 1964) Airfix Robin Hood set. Assuming I get them based by Sunday, this would bring me up to 33 figures for the month. It hasn’t been too bad, considering all the Christmas hurly-burly.
  10. While I still have some more barbarians/Vikings to paint, I was inspired yesterday to get a start on the orc army I'll be wanting for the campaign. These trolls are from the Age of Mythology boardgame, which has sprue of "things" for Egyptian, Greek, and Norse mythology. There were four on the sprue, so I intend to paint one more stand at some point. It would be nice if they came in more than one pose, but the implicit challenge in this project is to do it all in plastic, and some things are a little scarce.
  11. I finished up two more stands of fantasy Vikings for more portable 1/72 scale campaign set up. These are intended as “Blades” for Hordes of the Things, so I grouped all the two-handed axes I could get out of a box each of Zvezda and Orion Vikings and possible Revell Saxons. This puts me up to twelve bases for the ‘army’, with three to go, so I’ve got enough to swap the order of battle around a little bit between games.
  12. I cleaned up my painting space this weekend, which made it much more inviting: So, with my significant other off on a business trip early this morning, there was little to keep me from queuing up the podcasts and painting as long as I could stand it. I finished a couple of vintage TSR Star Frontiers ships, for generic SF usage: In the vintage SF line, I also did a simple paint scheme on two Grenadier Traveller Imperial Marines, acquired fairly recently from eBay: I had these two Airfix Robin Hood figures started
  13. Well then, Let's go on. As written in my WIP thread ->Check Here<-, the first few Gallian infantry units for my Valkyria Chronicles scenario ->Check Here<- are done. That means: First few units are ready to be shown. As I wrote, those are units I made over a time frame of almost 4 years now, so I guess a constant quality improvement is clearly visible. Still - even if they are not perfect to the last, every of these figures is quite dear to me. As you can see, on the first two I tried to apply eyes, but it look
  14. My older son (now 27...) has been up to visit twice in the past month or so. Because of the portability we found ourselves playing an old favorite, Hordes of the Things, using 1/72 scale plastic armies assembled from an eclectic variety of sources. In my usual scattered way, my muse led me to pull out a delayed project, a Hordes expansion army of fantasy-ed Viking barbarians. My troops, if they are ever completed, will be assembled from a mix of Revell, Orion, and Zvezda figures, mixed within the units. These two are Zvezda. I'll go back and collect pictures of the rest of the finished fig
  15. So my older son was up for a visit this weekend with some gaming. After yesterday's Saga and Frostgrave games, we finished up this morning with a "traditional" game of Hordes of the Things (Wargames Research Group, 1991), which was one of the first wargames he learned to play. Since he was in middle school, we have generally played with 1/72 scale plastics, and, as an adult, he's quite adept at painting them. So, when we were done, I was inspired to dig through my boxes of projects set aside, and work up a couple of elves. (He drew up a campaign map a few years ago; I was assigned elves, but
  16. Hello! after some time, following the 3D sculpting of 1/72 models for fantasy gaming, we sent to 3d print the first faction - the Rösian humans (vikings)-, and yesterday we received the masters/samples, to assemble them and show them off! The starter packs of all factions will contain a mix of monopuse models (always with separated shield) and other poses with the option to select different heads or weapons. So to make a "refresh", these are some of the renders : This is not a human viking but we , to see how would it come out, sent to print an elf hyena rider After 3D printing,
  17. Just got a pack of The Red Box 1/72 Dark Alliance Orcs:set 2 that I plan to use for goblins. The plastic is kind of rubbery, maybe a PVC material, unlike the styrene like plastic I was expecting. It is for the best to be honest, main sprue can be bent in half and returns to original shape with nearly no trouble and only a tiny bit of discoloration. That will at least keep the tiny weapons from breaking easily. The plastic seems a bit like Bones, so filing does not seem too effective. Plan is to clean and wash them on the sprues then pin the sprue itself to some sort of ancho
  18. This is the first of my units for my 1/72 WW2 wargame. It's 1/76 scale, but that's close enough to do okay. This kit had very crisp moldings, so it was probably a pretty early run. I'd guess it was made about 1980. I painted the camouflage with a base of old reaper pro paint Griffon Tan, with old pro paint olive and shield brown for the pattern. The little skirt near the bottom is old reaper chestnut brown. I then gave the whole thing a wash in Coat D'Arms brown ink wash, which I thinned an extra 50% to make it flow better. You can see it still caught in some surface places and looks
  19. Hi all, Has anyone purchased a mini that is 1/72 scale? If so, how does the scale compare to Reaper's 25mm "Heroic" scale? Smaller, bigger... about the same? I found some plastic minis that would do well as fodder, but I want to make sure the scale is right before I purchase. Thanks! -mb
