Some nice simple ECW Troopers

More Joan of Arc Troopers I'm enjoying painting 15mm it's more stylistic and less detailed than the 28mm while being more detailed and less stylistic than the 6mm. I've also worked out what I'm going to do with the Greeks. I'm going to paint them in the same colours as the Army of New Haven. I'll just blaim global warming. Actually the British styles I've used for the lat medieaeveal period were based on continental styles and the general period I'm aiming for roughly corresponds with the Italian Wars which were ancient greek successor states. My project will naturally involve more Wizards, Dragons, Gods and Monsters than most historical armies.

I'm aiming to complete Conan and Massive Darkness this year so I've been painting some pieces from the Conan game.


The unuusual mummy is Cun-Ha from Massive Darkness who I'll use as a hero. Theres been a bit of a hissy fit in the recent attempts to kickstarter a Conan expansion about repeat sculpts but frankly I could use a few more of these and don't quite understand the fuss. If Monolith games wants to chuck a few dozen more of these at me with some new models who am I to argue? Admittedly I use these models for Regiments and Wargame with them so I'm less worried about duplicate sculpts than most customers.

I've also been picking up Mortal Realms for the Night Haunt models so I really can't say I worry much about duplicate sculpts.....

Mantic Wraith

Ratz

Ghoul objective markers from Heresy games.

More Undead for now.
Wraiths I've decided I'll go with the greener variant without the brown ink for my Night Haunt.

Zomborcs Nothing much to say here.

Skellies The tiny ones are 15mm models from Joan of Arc.

Hoggar Mantic Undead Troll Shaman

Still got plenty to update soon.

Green it shall be then.
I've been painting but not posting and I've got a load of men done for the Army of New Haven. Bear in mind though this is what has been completed since mid-january so it's not that impressive.
War of the Roses models

Landsknecht

English Civil War Troopers

and some Artillery


as well as two heroes a Heresy Paladin and a Loka wizard.

Along with that I've got a bunch more 15mm done.

Cheers only the final photograph is 15mm Kid Kyoto and yep I don't bother with eyes on 28mm. Bad eyes are one of the easiest ways to spoil a paint job and I just never produced them right consistently. More Undead this time.
A bunch of basic Skellies both Conan and Mantic

Two reaper ghouls,a zombicide rat swarm and an undead construct made from a Loka model.

Some ghosts both Zombicide and Mantic I over did the green washes on the Zombicide models.

Finally a Celtos Standard Bearer I've finally painted up to use as a Battle Standar in Kings of War.

Large batch of Joan of Arc figures.

Really enjoying painting this scale hmming and hahhing about adding more figures from some of the metal manufacturers for variety but I've got plenty on the go at the minute. I'd also quite like to add the Landsknecht and ECW elements as well.

Reaper Bones Hero Landsknecht style meant painting her for this force was a no brainer with sme Perry Men-at-Arms and Warlord ECW Cavalryman

Massed Landsknecht been varying my colour choice a little more not too much as I want a fairly uniform feel but a bit more than the other elements. Realised the best way to do this going forward involves not painting the dark blue elements first. They also show why I've stayed square massed dense formations look good and are more "realistic" than skirmish blocks for a mass army game.

Got the first of my Victrix Greeks painted up. I'm also actally running low on Perry medieaevel's to assemble......

I've also seen something new on the web called Turnip28 it's basically a blanchitsu take on fantasy napoleonics. Now I first saw it on Gardens of Hecate and looked about for it. Oddly enough thought provokingly for me I didn't really get that impressed with it and I've thought about why. Blanchitsu for a start it's hyper surreal and heavily grim dark. I actually find grim dark a bit of a put off really if everythings dark and wangsty why care? I want to root for and emphasise with characters in fiction. Blanchitsu as a style impresses me less than "Eavy Metal or realism. I do like oldhammer but I've always been drawn to the real roots which make it plausible. I don't paint that way and to be honest while I create gribbly mutants and mucky nurgle I do like clean simple colours to contrast it with.

The other thing it's made me consider are the elements of these 3 projects. My Army of New Haven are currently barely fantasy and could do with some none human and fantasy elements to jazz it up. At the moment I only have Wizards and some Brettonian Pegasus Knights adding saddles to a few of my Reaper models and knight riders will also help. I've got a hankering to add some of Wargames Atlantics Halfling Militia and possibly Dwarven allies of some kind eventually. A steam tank is a definite possibility at some point. My Undead as yet have no real elements of Mundi within them nothing truly original to me. Well some toy dinosaurs will sort that out when I get around to it. My Greeks will have plenty of mythic elements from Mythic Battles Pantheon but I'll probably add faun and centaur auxillaries as well.

Fantasy Napoleonics are something I would love to do. I enjoy taking fantasy out of Medieaevel stasis and also out of Western Europe. My greek project is a start at this. I have a madcap dream of presenting Mundi some day as a series of settings for different periods and Napoleonics would be one. However Turnip 28 doesn't quite hit the spot for me and I think it's as it ignores what fascinates me about the periods. Massive set piece battles and the formations and tactics used are the key to me for the Napoleonic period and it doesn't include them. The lack of cavalry also doesn't sit right with me as one of the grim darkiest images of the period for me is a lot of young men being led to their doom by an idiotic toff of a cavalry officer who's generally outwitted by his horse. The pageantry and spectacle of a formal Napoleonic battle also horribly contrasts with the hideous aftermath.

Equally as an art project it's caught my attention intrigued me and made me consider having a go even if Ido end up producing something totally different and that is a success right?

Yep Alternative Armies they are rather "Old School" miniatures and it's a project for the future if ever

These'll provide a fantasy element interestingly enough they seem rather period agnostic so should work with the Greeks as well as the Army of New Haven.

Characters and Bonepiles.

Zombies and Ghouls mainly from Zombicide.

Skelebobs from Mantic and Conan


Been looking at the Oathmark and Wargames Atlantic skeletons with interest but I have loads of Mantic Skellies to do still. I'll definitely be buying the book however. Next purchase I have my eye on is some Fauns and Centaurs to go with the Greeks I reckon.

Some Undead I got finished at the end of last year. New Year means it's time to reflect and plan so as I update projects I'm going to be adding a rough plan. For Undead I'm going to continue adding models through Mortal Realms as and when. I've also got the hankering to add some centrepieces to the army. This will probably involve picking up several GW start collecting sets and possibly a Reaper order. My coy of Bloodborne has also just arrived and believe me there are some excellent gribbly Undead monsters in there. It's an excellent set of Lovecraftian abominations. I will admit it also makes my decision not to back Darkest Dungeon easier. As they aren't Chibi and follow similar themes. So there'll be coming along. There'll probably be my main collecting army this year.

More men for the army of New Haven. I'n not planning on adding any new models to this army for a while. I've still got plenty of troopers of various kinds to paint up. I've also treated myself to a bunch of RGD Fauns and Centaurs as well as the Halflings. Now as my Greeks and this army share a similar scheme I can attach the none human auxillaries to both armies to amuse myself as I wish.....

Just a quick update on the Undead. First of my GW Ghosties

I've realised I want to do the various kinds of ghostie differently some like these and the Chainrasps will benefit from a darker grittier colours with bright ghosty bitz to stand out while the Harridans will benefit from a more ghostly brighter scheme. With Mortal Realms I have a lot of these. Including 120 Chainrasps 3 proper hordes or 2 legions for Kings of War. Mweeheehee.

More Mantic Skeletons and Revenants. I've also picked up a bunch of Runewars stuff on clearance in particular 10 of the Carrion lancers so exect more giant gribblies soon.
