  1. I had a little bit of time on Saturday to continue with my Prince August orcish warband (guess it’s an Orctober surprise), finishing some speedy work on three figures. All three of these are from Prince August mold #655. I had never successfully cast these figures before this summer, so I was interested to see that the face designs on the shields are just the sort of thing I freehand onto flat orc shields. That brings me up to nine, but I’m going to need three or four more to field a 300 point warband for A Song of Blades and Heroes. The real
  2. After a hiatus of several weeks, I cleared my desk of work-at-home gear and set up a painting station yesterday, since I had a day off. After pouring a libation to Muses, I found that Calliope had apparently drawn my assignment for the day. (She and Clio seem to trade off...) I was inspired to work on my ongoing project to play a game with all-new panemic-era material. I have posted two previous topics about this project, here and here. The basic idea is that my brother and I obtained Osprey Games’ new mas batle rules Oathmark this summer, and he decided it would be a good tim
  3. I painted some scenery things two weekends ago, but haven’t touched a miniature in a couple of weeks. I also cleaned my desk ... so that I could use it for a work-at-home station. I finally cleared the computers again yesterday, unrolled my hobby mat, and painted a few more Prince August figures. I’d like to get a skirmish game on the table using all new work soon, so I will start preparing a few opponents. Because these figures are small and the detail ranges from soft to non-existent, I’m playing around with a more-than-usually abstracted style with them, hoping
  4. So, a couple of weeks ago my brother decided that he wanted to learn how to cast his own figures. He’s been sculpting, you see, and if he gets anything he likes, he’ll need to be able to reproduce them. He dug out a few Prince August fantasy molds I’d given him the last time we had this disucssion, but this time he ordered a melting pot and some lead-free pewter and actually cast some models. To help him out, I was giving him tips remotely, and I also set up my gear and did some casting as well. I haven’t been painting much during the pandemic for various reasons, but I decided
  5. Without going into the whole background, these guys are from Prince August “Irish Wild Geese” 40mm semi-flat home casting molds. I’ve been working with these molds and figures for almost thirty years at this point, and have enough for most purposes, so it’s been a while since I painted any. Pictures of games with them can be found on my blog. We generally paint them somewhere in the classic toy soldier spectrum rather than as museum-style diorama miniatures, and these, like the rest of my collection, are done in fictitious uniforms for imaginary countries. (Or “imagi-nations” in historical
  6. While I was on with the Hangouts painting group last night, I was working on the last four figures for this stand of 8 Saxons: They have been languishing for a couple of years at this point, and I wanted a break from what I had been doing, and had been reminded of them recently. The Osprey rules series (e.g. Frostgrave, Dragon Rampant) was kicked off in 2012 with Dan Mersey's _Dux Bellorum_, a game of small warband combat in Dark Ages Britain. I have had a set of mostly out of production Prince August molds (601-608) which make multi-part figures, supplemented by a few barbarian mo
  7. Well, I've put in an order for some molds and casting equipment from Prince August. Anyone try this? I've got so many sprues, bits, and even the metal from drilling and pinning that I thought I'd give it a try.
