(Outremer) Saracen Warband III

Posted on July 4th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I painted the dip on the Saracens late Monday night so they would have 24 hours to dry whilst I was working on London on Tuesday. I should have guessed there was something wrong with the (rather old) tin of dip from the 5mm thick hardened crust on the …

(Outremer) Saracen Warband II

Posted on July 2nd, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I’ve decided that the quickest and most effective way of getting these figures painted and on the tabletop is the trusty old dip, so today was all about block painting!I’m not too keen on figures being too bright given the rigours of the battlefield an…

(Outremer) Saracen Warband I

Posted on July 1st, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Tom at BIG has suggested we run an Outremer: Faith and Blood campaign in July and August (Outremer being the new Crusade skirmish rules from Osprey).The game looks like a lot of fun requiring very few figures and having a box of the Gripping Beast &nbs…

Normański, samotny kusznik zagubiony gdzieś w lesie Sherwood, niechybnie niedługo dopadnie go Robin Hood;)Trzeci wojownik normański uzbrojony w kuszę przeznaczony do Sagi. Oczywiście, miniaturka produkcji Gripping Beast, do której stosują się wszelkie …

Sons of Death unit for SAGA

Posted on June 27th, 2018 under . Posted by

 I’ve been away a bit of late, so not much productivity from my own brush to report. However, All round good guy Alan painted up a Sons of Death unit for me to finish off my Irish SAGA Warband. And a lovely job he did with them too.  All …

Kuszą go! | Shoot him with the crossbow!

Posted on June 20th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Drugi normański wojownik uzbrojony w kuszę. Rzeźba równie prosta jak poprzednik, szczegóły jedynie te, które są naprawdę niezbędne. Kołczan na bełty, jakiś pasek, sakiewka, tego rodzaju. Mimo tej prostoty model przyjemny w malowaniu, choć w trakcie psi…

June has been a slow month for hobby time here with little progress happening on several on going projects.The command and casualty stands for Confederates in the ACW move on steadily.Even slower is the progress being made on the Arthurian warband and …

Hoping this works out ok as pictures taken, edited and uploaded from phone instead of the now defunct desktop computer.A variety of stands for ACW Confederates including command, artillery, infantry and cavalry casualities. A mixture of Blue Moon from …

Normański kusznik | Norman crossbowman

Posted on May 31st, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Pierwsza figurka z drugiego oddziału wojowników normańskich do SAGI. Tym razem będzie to oddział pieszych uzbrojonych w kusze – ponoć wymiatają;) Miniaturka produkcji Gripping Beast, metalowa, o trudnoprzyswajalnej urodzie – z daleka może być, z bliska…

(Saga) Saxon Hearts

Posted on May 25th, 2018 under , . Posted by

The second game I played with Rich was Saga, and this time Rich decided to play as Anglo-Saxons against my Vikings.This was a hugely enjoyable game and the Saxons proved to be a tough opponent, providing lots of tactical challenges, their battleboard i…

Oddział normański | Norman unit

Posted on May 18th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Oddział normańskich wojowników skończony. Osiem plastikowych figurek Conquest Miniatures – nie najgorszych na tle innych historycznych plastikówych, ale z pewnością odległych o lata świetlne od produkcji GW z analogicznego okresu – z tego co pamiętam, …

Finis coronat opus

Posted on May 16th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Finis coronat opus – przynajmniej częściowo, bo to koniec prac nad zaledwie jednym z oddziałów, co prawda chyba najbardziej pracochłonnym. W moich prywatnych “rachunkach” pomalowanie konnego to bowiem równowartość co najmniej dwóch pieszych.Ósmy normań…

Norman mounted hearthguard unit

Posted on May 13th, 2018 under . Posted by

First one, out of two, mounted Norman hearthguard units for my collection. I went with swords for their weapons to make them stand out from the spear/lance armed warriors. The miniatures are Conquest Games plastics.  Painting these was slow b…

Normański numer 7 | Norman no. 7

Posted on May 12th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Powolutku zbliżam się do końca prac nad pierwszym oddziałem Normanów do Sagi, to już siódmy konny wojownik. Jestem z niego chyba najbardziej zadowolony. Lubię połączenie niebieskiego i żółtego, tarcza z nałożonymi na siebie pasami w tych kolorach wyszł…

(Saga) The Gods of Dice Fail Me!

Posted on May 10th, 2018 under , . Posted by

Had a game of Saga against Matt last night at BIG. He’d been kind enough to lend me his Viking army for my first couple of games so it was a bit strange facing the very troops who had done so well in my initial forays with the system…Unfortunately my…

More SAGA with a new Romano British Army

Posted on May 10th, 2018 under , . Posted by

Been a busy few weeks with work travel but I have managed to complete the final touches on my Irish Warband for SAGA.  I am also about to be deployed for 3 months so not much looming on the hobby front unfortunately. I also moved house, just to up…

SAGA mounted anglo saxon warlord

Posted on May 2nd, 2018 under . Posted by

I’ve had a lot of distractions from painting the last couple of weeks, but really wanted to get back into painting so I figured painting up a character model would pull me into the painting mode again. This is a miniature made out of the plastic Conque…

Saga: Invasion of the Half-Painted Vikings

Saga night again this evening down BIG playing against a new, more experienced opponent in the form of Jason with his Anglo-Danes, using my half-painted army…We played two games and I learnt a few new rules. The Gods of Dice once again smiled favoura…

Let paint those Shields

Posted on April 25th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Like most people when it comes to painting shield I draw a big blank.  I sit there staring at the shields waiting for a divine bolt of lighting to inspire in painting the shield.  I could be hours before I put paint to the shield.  Well …

Normańska sielanka | Norman idyll

Posted on April 24th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Szósty wojownik normański dołącza do swoich poprzedników. Muszę powiedzieć, że kiedy stoją pomalowani na moim biurku, wyglądają całkiem nieźle. Aż mam czasem ochotę wziąć je do rąk i pobawić się nimi jak w szczenięcych latach żołnierzykami z plastiku;)…

Kolejny wojownik normański | Another Norman warrior

Posted on April 20th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Piąty, jeśli mnie pamięć nie myli, Norman malowany z myślą o Sadze. Niespecjalnie jestem z niego zadowolony, tarcza malowana w szachownicę okazała się wyzwaniem znacznie większym, niż początkowo zakładałem. Ale – co najważniejsze – jest i ze stołu z pe…

Kolejny normański konny | One more Norman knight

Posted on April 10th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Wraz z prezentacją czwartego normańskiego rycerza można powiedzieć, że mam pomalowany jeden “biedapunkt” drużyny do Sagi. “Biedapunkt” bo za jeden punkt mogę kupić, co prawda, oddział przybocznych liczących czterech konnych, ale – jak wspomniałem wcześ…

First real painting session since the end of the Challenge saw some time spent on a few varied pieces, some un-started some partially painted, some just needing a new base.During the Challenge a solitary elf was painted, based and finished. The fact is…

6 pts of Normans painted and tested

Posted on April 8th, 2018 under , . Posted by

This one went really fast, just two sittings and my second Norman warrior unit on foot is painted up.  I counted the models left in the Norman warriors plastic box, and I have enough soldiers to make two more warrior units on foot! They will de…
