Hoi,Some more baddies today! I love painting up the Hero Quest figures because even though they are very simple in detail they have loads of character. Continuing with the figures from the core set here are the Orcs and Fimir all done up.Now a lot of c…

Still here! Yo Joe!

Posted on October 6th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Hoi,As said earlier, it’s a mad-house at work. The little hobby time I manage to find, I’d rather be painting than blogging so I have been lagging behind in that field. Now I have had had some time to take pictures and put up some posts. So let’s see w…

Proof of life!?

Posted on September 11th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Hoi,

Very much like Lord Awdry over at 28mm Victorian Warfare, I am finding myself incredibly busy with the start of the new school-year. While I have been painting some figures, a lot of time goes into other, work related, stuff.

Even so I managed to finished these Prussian Landwehr troops. They are white metal 20mm figures which are the stretchgoals of HäT industries second crowdfunder project. I was lucky to get a few early to put some paint on them. Great little sculpts and they paint up nicely.

From left to right they depict:

A surgeon, ADC, sapper and officer.

Cheers Sander

Hoi,Today I have some more of the bad guys to show you. The skeletons and goblins shown here are the lesser of the evil troops. In game, they are really easy to get rid of but they can also be lucky and that means Heroes in trouble. Mostly they come in…
