Savage Orcs 1987: First Rank Painted

Hello! Here's the first rank of the old Savages painted. It's a pleasure to give these old classics a new coat of paint...

These are gonna work as "Skulks" unit in my Kings of War army. Completely useless in game terms, but they're looking good :)

Some shield designs...
Crappy pics with my phone. Sorry bout that :(

More Savages soon. Bye now!

Gludbug the Savage Orc 1987

Hello! I'm putting together a small unit of Savage Orcs for KoW, to be used as Skulks Troop. I have a punch of old 1987 Savages around and this "beauty" for a unit leader figure.

The base said "Gludbug" in bad handwriting... Not much to be found about this mini in the net. It might be made by Perry twins, as are most of the -87 Savages.

It took me some time to figure out all the details in the miniature. I found no pics of this mini painted to help me out even a bit. And I had to fix a shield for it, for all my old shields are M.I.A.

But it was worth a little effort, and I'm happy with the result. Next some other Savages... Bye now!

The Boyz Are Back In Town: FB 3rd Edition Regiment Painted

Hello there! Here's the regiment of WHFB 3rd edition painted. These are the minis I started the hobby with, along with plastic Rogue Trader Marines (those are still unpainted). I'm very pleased to get these finally in paints after 30 years... Here's the pics!

Taken with phone... Not the best of my pics, but they'll have to do now :)
The sand on the bases is actually darker and better looking live...

From an different angle...

I love those old shield designs... I have to find rest of the shields somewhere, for I didn't have enough for all of the orcs. Ebay, here I come...

Bye now!

More Imperial Assault Rebels Painted

Hello there! Just got these IA-figures off the painting table. Here's the pics...

This was the first time I was using my Honor-phone to take miniature pics... And I'm pretty happy of the quality of the pics.

More painted minis soon! Bye now...

Old Hammer Orcs, First Rank Painted

Hello! Here's the first rank of the regiment painted. There's gonna be 15 more of these to fill up the requirement of twenty orcs for KoW-regiment.

KoW rules doesn't use musicians or standard bearers in the unit... so I'm thinking of skipping them for now. Of course they will make the unit look better, and they will be useful in FaBa. We'll see..

Old models rank up nicely..! No need to bang your head to the wall to get these in line :) Waaagh!

Warhammer, Old Metal Orc

Hello! Just a quick update on the Orc regiment...

 I found one of the old metal hero orcs to fill up the leader point in the first rank. It was great to paint this old classic miniature. And it fits to the unit like a glove.

I'm not sure when this mini was made. I guess it's late 80's. Looks good :)

More soon... Bye now!

Old Warhammer Plastic

Hello there! I dug out my old plastic Orcs from the 80's. Not many left of these classics... But enough to make a regiment for Kings of War. Few goblins also still hanging along.

These came with "Warhammer Fantasy Regiments" box back in the days. The box included 60 miniatures, divided to six different Warhammer races. There were Dwarfs, Skaven, Orcs, Goblins, Dark Elves and Wood Elves. I still have few figures left from the other races... somewhere.

I painted the first of these great minis... Trying to keep the palette simple as possible. Only three main colors in this one. I have to find the old shields if I still have them... They can be anywhere :)

More of this regiment soon I hope... :) Bye now!

Star Wars, Imperial Assault: More Painted Heroes

 Another set of six rebel scum coming soon!

May the Force be with you... Bye now!

TMNT-Shadows of the Past, More Minatures Painted

Here's another punch of TMNT-Board game miniatures in paints... Still quite many to go until they're all painted, but I think I have painted the most of them by now. :)

Here's April O'neil and Alopex...

Thug Brawler and Thug Gunner...

And Foot Clan Ninjas and Elites... There's a lot of Foot Clan minis in the game... A LOT!
Pics are a bit flashy. Sorry bout that... Bye now!

Serpents of Hellfire, Devastator Squad

Hello! In between of projects I managed to finish my Devastator Squad for my own Space Marine chapter...

Angels of Hellfire is a Dark Angels successor chapter, and as I was reading the DA-codex, I spotted out that the Devastator Squad now has an Armorium Cherub. Meaning that once per game one of the models may shoot twice in a round, as the Cherub realoads that models weapon. Cool, and must have...

But I did'nt have a suitable model for the purpose, so I had to kitbash one together... And here's how it came out :)

Marine with Multi-melta...

Plasma Cannon

Heavy bolter


And Sergeant with Bolter and Signum

I have to learn how to take pictures of red models... In these pictures some layers of high lights just disappears somewhere... I know it's a lighting and shutter problem, but I haven't figured out the right settings yet..! Well, there you have it. More painted minis coming up soon. Bye now!

Last of the 9th Age Warband

Hello! Here's the last of the 9th Age Forest Spirits army... Two largest figures in the group.

The large infantry is heavily converted again... not by me. I don't know what parts were used, but mostly GW, I guess. The Eagle is from Game Zone miniatures range... And it's a good looking figure.

Close up on the Beastman...

Here's the Eagle. It was an effort to assemble, and lots of greenstuff was used, but it came out ok!

There you have it... Next some Turtle action again I guess. Bye now!

More 9th Age Forest Spirits

Here's just a one picture WIP-post of the 9th age Beastmen. There you have it.
Once again, some great convertions on these minis. Not made by me :(
One big one coming up next, and apparently some kind of flyer... Bye now!

Fantasy Battle 9th Age: Forest Spirits

Hello there! At the moment I'm working on very interesting punch of figures... Heavily converted Fantasy Battle "Beastmen" and "Dryads", that are going for a FB9th Age Tournament use.

These figures are continuation for the "Fantasy Battle Monsteres" that I painted last year. Check those out here. FB-Monsters

As you can see, the convertion is heavy and very imaginative... And sadly I can't take any credit from that. I'm just the painter here :) The owners are also gonna do the bases for all the minis. So here they are shown unbased.

Here's Dryad kind of things... I have the green theme in all the figures legs, to make them look like they are rising from the forest undergrowth.

Beastmen things, with basically the same color theme... I just used alot of rusty metal colors with these.

More Beastmen things...

And next there will be some big infantry (kind of) ones. Bye now!

WHFB: Dark Elves, Black Guard and some Extras

Hello! The unit of Black Guards is finished. I painted some individuals on the side. One Assasin, one Shade and a Witch... Here's the pics!

It was a  challenge to make the unit of metal Black Guard rank up nicely... But I made it :)

Here's the Assasin, one of the Shades, and the Witch...

Close up on the Assasins cloak... it came out ok!

More of Fantasy Battle Darkies coming soon. Bye now!

Star Wars: Imperial Assault, Some Painted Miniatures

Hello  there! It's been awhile since my last posting... Nice to see I still have readers :)

I started this years painting with Fantasy Battle Dark Elves and some Star Wars: Imperial Assault minis. Dark Elf unit is still on the table, almost finished, with some heroes... more of that soon.

But I managed to finish first ten Imperial Assault figures I was asked to paint. My own IA-board game is collecting dust in the cupboard, but maybe inspired by this painting job I'll get my own minis in to paints also... And who knows, Ill begin some gaming too?

But here's some pics of the first ten IA-minis...

Here's R2-D2, Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker.

A punch of scoundrels: Lando Calrissian, Boba Fett, Han Solo and Chewie.

Loku Kanoloa, Diala Passil, and Gaarkhan.

At the back of Diala Passils cloak I made a fast, unrealistic, but nice light effect. Happy about that :)

And there you have it... More of these is coming. But maybe next some Dark Elves. Bye now!
