Looks like somebody tried to copy the most atrocious GW style muscle shading circa plastic Bullgor release, without even having any sculpted muscle to work with.

A lof of the historical miniatures out on the market are designed to look like the figures from "Foundry Miniatures" - a company that is basically a sister company to Games Workshop that just focused on historical miniatures and was very dominant in that realm until 10 or 15 years when other companies really started to step it up.

Even so, those other companies copied the foundry aesthetics, which why there are so many historical figures that look more cartoonish then they need to.


Foundry is to blame for the look of Warlord, Gripping Beast, Northstar, and all the other dumpy miniature lines? I can only imagine how the Fireforge Mongols would have turned out in a world where Foundry wasn’t so influential.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

If anyone wonder if the Conquest Jotnar would be a good candidate for a giant in Oathmark here you have scale comparison (Please note that it is in a process of conversion - originally he had a tree in his right hand). Personally, although I love the model, I think he is too big for Oathmark scale but he cartainly fits on the 50x100 base.

Just picked up the Oathmark rulebook. There seems to be a printing error on pg 44... the picture at the bottom covers the last sentence about combat against units in defensive works. Can anyone tell me ending to "You must also move any other......" ?

It should be ''You must also move any other units that are in the way, just as with regular combat.''

Yeah, since you first mentioned that they have basically a neck and then legs I am not so keen to buy them anymore. That and the duck legs infantry means that I will rather not make human army from the Oathmark minis.

It’s a shame because I finally came around on their dwarfs and elves. Even their current human kit isn’t too bad (although it’s fairly vanilla, and the selection of heads means towards the doltish).

Perhaps the horses can be saved with a shield bit glued to their chest fronts.

Those are just not very good. Especially the horses, though the riders are pretty weak too. But you have to have 1/3 of your horses falling down.

I hadn’t noticed that, but now I’m chortling.
Looks like a bunch of Artaxes in search of some mud.


Hmmm..

I have plenty of spare horse head bits leftover, some mud-textured paint, and some spare cavalry bases. GB’s heavy Arab cavalry come with spare torsos heads and arms... I think I just found a way to really stretch that cavalry box value.

Liking the look of those Revenants though. Those Oathmark undead are shaping up to be rather a great range.

Right, but if they are not in scale with other manufacturers then everything looks odd. Especially with those of us who have decade spanning collections.

yea, I was a little bummed to find this line runs a little on the small side. Not that interested in picking up too much - I have to mount them on 5mm bases, the poor fellas!

If you have a collection spanning decades and various manufacturers, odds are you're having scale issues already! Oh, how often I wish there was an actual 28mm standard...

For the undead specifically, I don't really know what project they'd be part of however, so I can find something suitable. Given their bronze age Celtic look, they might work well opposing ordinary living Celts, so might look into some of the smaller historical ranges. Or simply have them fight the famously tiny Early Imperial Romans from Warlord Games; got a good few of those lying around. That might be perfect actually, hmm...
