It is better late than never. I wasn’t able to get to the internet until yesterday and so I couldn’t update the Tale of Malifaux Bloggers. I have a few minutes this morning to get my stuff updated between various errands. So first of all I still haven’…

Gathering the Clansmen

Looking at the collection of Dwarves I have I noticed that I have a lot of regiments that I wouldn’t consider finished. I have for instance thirty three Clansmen. So with the current thoughts about Dwarves I decided to finish off a few of these regimen…

Angry Anglo-Danes for SAGA

Posted on March 12th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

redmanphill

I had been attempting to get a few more models done for SAGA recently. The easiest way to increase a force is to paint some Huscarls. I painted these four in a rush to try and have them ready for last weeks eight point clash. Work intervened and I fina…

SAGA 8 points

Posted on March 11th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

redmanphill

I managed to finally get another Saga game in recently. This time at eight points. I wanted to test how the system worked once you increase the points value. This time extending it a third beyond its comfort zone. I was playing my Anglo-Danes and was f…

Dwarven Expeditionary Force

I am bizarrely interested again in my dwarves as I have mentioned a few times. I have quite a few other projects going at the moment from SAGA , Malifaux, Warhammer Ancient Battles to Muskets & Tomahawks. I am being really ill-disciplined at the moment…

Tale of Malifaux Bloggers: Mid-Month

Posted on March 5th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

I have only managed to play two games during the course of the Tale of Malifaux Bloggers. At least both of them have been with the assigned crew. My crew box hasn’t arrived at the local store yet so there is going to be a lot of pressure to get it fini…

Dwarf Longbeards revisited

You may recognise these models from a post a long time ago. Whatever the source of my current urge for Warhammer is I am unsure. However I took these models out of the cabinet and gave them some of the face masks that come on the sprue to make them de…

This is a WIP for my Compagnie Franches de la Marine for Muskets & Tomahawks. I picked some up at the Tactica fair here last weekend. I think I have enough for a 300pt game now. I just need to get painting. I am not investing too much effort into these…

Ancient Dwarf Lord

It has been a busy week. Work has been overwhelming and I not only haven’t been able to paint but I haven’t been able to blog. However the dwarven urge has not left me and I pulled out one of my old unpainted models. This one definitely qualifies for O…

Wayne England’s Dwarves

Posted on February 21st, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

redmanphill

I think one of the main reasons I started collecting Dwarves was due to Wayne England’s army previewed in White Dwarf 135 and 148. I could be wrong on the numbers but they are in the general area. The links will direct you to copies of the articles in …

Canadian Militia

I have nailed my colours to the mast and they are white. Here are the first of my Canadian Militia for Muskets & Tomahawks. The models were a christmas gift from a friend. With all models I get that are gifts I try to paint them as soon as possible. Th…

Tale of Malifaux Bloggers – Month One

Posted on February 17th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

redmanphill

So it begins. There are a few supply issues it would seem in getting models not only to Europe but to Germany and so I am a little worried I won’t be getting my first month models anytime soon. The game store has been informed at least and so I hope th…

Seamus – the Mad Hatter, the Joker and Jack the Ripper

Posted on February 14th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

redmanphill

I am still struggling with my camera. I guess I can’t expect any better at this point. The photo is fairly poor but at least is conveys the colours for Seamus and his lady. As the model is essentially composed of two people I wanted to contrast them f…

Tale of Malifaux Bloggers – Month Zero

I was listening to a recent podcast about Malifaux called Malifools. They mentioned that they were organising a Tale of Four Gamers style project where people would buy and paint a decent sized set of Malifaux models over the next six months. If you do…

Wargames Building Pt. 4

Posted on February 11th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

redmanphill

I am making really slow progress on this building due to not really having all the material I need. Today I picked up some thinner balsa and I was able to get the tiles done on the veranda roof. I measured them all out at 1cm intervals but due to the d…

Wargames Building pt. 3

Posted on February 6th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

redmanphill

Afteen’tr many hours of cutting and gluing here is the result. This part of the building is the easiest as there really isn’t anything complicated to do. The windows aren’t finished yet in the back. I have to let the glue dry a little more before I ca…

Lots of Trees

I have been busily building more trees. I really want to get a good few of these done as they look excellent, especially en masse. I have another fourteen to do here in Hamburg still and twelve I intend to bring back from Ireland next time I am home. T…

Wargames Building pt.2

I took a while to figure out what I would use to build the chimney section of the building. I finally settled with some air drying modelling clay. I usually don’t like the stuff and for this type of building it really isn’t that good. However as I had …

Wargames Buildings pt.1

I have been building a few buildings recently and I thought I might show a step by step of exactly the process I use when building them. I don’t tend to get too complicated with what I do. Mostly I rely on the lessons learned from an old White Dwarf ar…

Another Kid

redmanphill

The two Crooligans for Malifaux have been fun to paint. I still have one left but I donÄt like the model and it has languished on my desk being steadily pushed back behind other models. It may get done eventually. I have some Dead Doxies, Seamus and p…

Poor Molly

I am jumping around a bit in what I have been painting recently. I managed to get Molly done despite having loads of other close to finished models. I had been expecting a game and so I wanted to get her finished however the game was cancelled. Eventua…

As a break I started painting these Stompers. Aas far as I remember they constitute a complete formation in the game. I have never used them so I am unsure. There has been a lively showing of photographs on the Epic:Armageddon facebook site. That got m…

I finally managed to paint the last of the Mindless Zombies. I have thankfully been managing to keep up the painting and I have a few models just about ready. I painted this guy quickly as I was uninspired to do anything special. It is a zombie in a su…

Since my recent game of SAGA at home I have been building some terrain. During the game we talked about eventually recreating the Battle of Hastings but that we would need some boggy terrain for it. I had been thinking about creating some so a while. M…
