10mm steppe goblins and ogres

Following on from the goblin wolf riders I showed at the end of last month, here is the start of a small steppe goblin army. These fabulous 10mm sculpts are styled as steppe goblins (conveniently), produced and sold by Polar Fox Studio in Siberia. They come in packs of 30 cast on strips five wide. There is a random command strip and then a selection of other strips - there must be 15 unique sculpts in each pack. The variation is quite impressive for a small range, and they really fit well with the feel of the Warmaster wolf riders with a similar Hun-inspired aesthetic. They are very characterful and therefore a bit of a bugger to paint. The end result is fantastic though.This wee chap is a Polar Fox steppe goblin shaman or sorcerer.In support I have some steppe ogres. These are actually 15mm orcs from Magister Militum, but their equipment is also a bit Hunnic in feel - well, some of their hats anyway - and they fit well with the 10mm goblins. Here is the mini-horde to date. Another group of goblins,

15 mm Mercs

I had nothing else to paint in 15mil sci-fi except these guys I bought on Ebay one or two years ago to make a quick force for Gruntz, but as I never got an opponent I forgot about them until now.They are quite hard plastic 15 mil. miniatures and I payed only €10 including P&P for 50 of them. Later I realised they apparently were a rip off from GZG miniatures.They are not very good quality plastic minis and a rip-off, so I decided to give them a quick paint treatment without much care. I gave them a coat of diluted water based bitumen of Judea and then a quick drybrush only to armour and weapons, plus a highlight to visors. I neither touched clothes nor boots.I made two teams of five mercs; each with a leader with pistol, a heavy weapon and three riflemen.A view of their backs.

Mancetter to Salute- Part II

Apologies for the delay in posting the second part of this- I have been frantically busy since Salute! All of these lovely close-ups of our Mancetter 61CE  To the Strongest! game were taken by Alan Daniels.The chariots are mash-ups of the Wargames Factory kits with Newline and other ponies.Above is my favourite warband, based on Tacticus' account of the druids at Mona. "On the shore stood the opposing army with its dense array of armed warriors, while between the ranks dashed women, in black attire like the Furies, with hair dishevelled, waving brands. All around, the Druids, lifting up their hands to heaven, and pouring forth dreadful imprecations, scared our soldiers by the unfamiliar sight, so that, as if their limbs were paralysed, they stood motionless, and exposed to wounds. Then urged by their general's appeals and mutual encouragements not to quail before a troop of frenzied women, they bore the standards onwards, smote down all resistance, and wrapped the foe in the flames of his own brands."Cel

Tournament PlaceFirst work on Tournament place. Before you ask. Figures are not content. Of course I am in training to create figures, esp. posing. I do that beside my work on terrain Kickstarters. Life is too short to do that later. Figures will be of course part of future Kickstarters. Let´s wait, when most of you will have a SLA printer with your FDM printers.Tournament PlaceKickstarterNajewitz Modellbau

French Commerce Raiders

I have ordered a couple of Tumbling Dice armoured cruisers for my up and coming pre-dreadnought project, which is based in the Far East c1900-1905. These are two Gueydon class armoured cruisers, two of which, Montcalm and Gueydon, were deployed to French Indochina and the South Pacific to fly the flag in 1902-03. I've just started reading the Siege of Tsingtau by Charles Stephenson, in which he sets out the rivalries over the Philippines after the Spanish American War as well as the clashes between the various powers over China and Manchuria. There's loads of 'what if's' to be used as scenario and campaign 'hooks', so a couple of  commerce raiding French cruisers are a very handy addition to the set up.

Too Many Tyranids

As I sit here by a pool with a Gin and Tonic, I have plenty of time to read and ponder what is next on the huge wargaming backlog. As we have been enjoying Warhammer 40K again and bought into Kill Team, I have been sorting through old models to see what can be used in Kill Team. The Tyranids were an easy Kill Team to muster, they did not take much work to get on the table, only needing a handful of models really helps. To give myself plenty of options, I updated a number of models so I can try out a proper swarm team at some stage. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I just rebased them and splashed on some ink. I can now field lots to Termagants or a horde of Hormagaunts with a single Tyranid Warrior to keep them in check. Or I can try the nine Genestealer team… So now I have more than enough Tyranids for Kill Team, I am wondering how long it would take to update all of my old models an make a small 40K sized army. These are all the updated models, but there are a few more boxes that I would nee
