I finished up a few more 15mm lizard riders from my Battlelore pile. I am excited to be almost near the end of the goblins.Up next: I have a bunch more foot and some dog or wolf riders and the goblins are done. Then onto the remaining dwarves.

The good weather has kept me away from the painting bench these past few weeks, but I have a few pieces that I finally finished.As I was painting up the 15mm Battlelore figures, I also picked up Dragon Rampant and started looking around for a few monst…

More goblins!

Posted on April 5th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

A few more goblins have rolled off the painting line. First up are some of the goblin lizard cavalry. The sword turned out nice on this one, hey?These guys were from the original base set and painted up nicely enough. I will vary the tunic colours as I…

Battlelore Goblins

I started on the Battlelore goblins this week and finished a couple of batches. The fellows with the scimitars are from the original boxed set and are about 18mm tall.I have painted a lot of goblins green over the years and I decided to use a muted fle…

Small World and some trolls

Posted on March 29th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

The Easter break gave me a chance to catch up on some painting and I started in on the Goblin figures I had from Battlelore. I finished six trolls (or giants?).They are quite a lot bigger than the human figures (mounted horse for comparison below).Jess…

Soldiers of God

No, not them. That is just some friends playing a beer-fueled game of Pandemic on the weekend.Soldiers of God is a new card driven set of rules for the Crusades. Bruce hosted a 15mm game on Tuesday and it was very interesting. Each turn comprises 14 al…

Last of the Battlelore humans

Posted on March 22nd, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Alright, a month later than planned, but I’m finally through with the human figures from Battlelore. Whew! These 24 represent medium foot and we’re a real grind due to the repetition.The shield decals again save some pretty mediocre paint jobs. Now ont…

Battlelore mounted humans

Posted on March 19th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

I made it to the end of the mounted humans (finally!) with the last 15 medium/light horse finally being finished.These are from the original boxed set and there were a lot of them. They took a wash nicely but I am glad to see the ass end of this pose.U…

Ides of March at the club

We had 16 guys out at the club last night, which was a big turn out! I hosted Scott, Wiley and Bruce in a game of 1775: Rebellion.I thought the Americans had the game well in hand, especially after Bruce landed in Delaware and Nova Scotia. We were all …

My usual Tuesday night gaming partner was unavailable this week so Jess and I started out wth a game of Small World. It was nice to win for once!I then met up with some friends at the Table Top Cafe 2.0 on 124th Street and 103 Ave.  We started out…

More Battlelore mounted knights

Posted on March 5th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Okay, so things have been crazy at work these past few weeks and I kind of fell off of the pace gaming-wise. I’m starting back at it with the last of the mounted knights.I picked up a few new paints (the yellow and the darker blue) and that has added s…

Dwarf foot

Posted on February 23rd, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

I added four units of Dwarves to the painted Battlelore armies. There were three units of swordsmen and one unit of crossbow troops.I was particularly happy with how the shields for the swordsmen came out since they were just a smooth disc.Up next: I h…

Battlelore Foot Knights

Posted on February 19th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Moving along, I finished off the foot knights from the various Battlelore set I have. I think the top two pictures are from the 100 Years War box.The bottom two pictures are from the original 1st Edition box. I still have a few medium foot to do but mo…

Battlelore foot and mounted

The Battlelore production line is ramping up as I am keen to finish these guys off by the end of February and run a couple of games at the club.More medium foot. I painted four units, all with variations of yellow and green. When the medium foot all ge…

Battlelore knights

Posted on February 13th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

I’m starting to make some head way on the Battlelore figures (I’m about half way through). Today I have 12 knights.These were the heavy cavalry that came with the original base game.The posing is a bit odd and once again, everyone is a southpaw. I’d be…

Mounted Dwarves

Posted on February 9th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Okay, so back to Battlelore. I painted up two units of mounted Dwarves I’m not sure what they are riding (maybe cattle?) but I wanted with a sheep-like theme given the Scottish look of these dwarves.Lovely figures. A bit big for dwarves (bigger than th…
