More HO-scale buildings

No gaming for me this week (school events intervened) but I did finish up some painting. I'm almost finished the fourth season of Gotham, so I'm back in a superhero frame of mind.A few month back, I picked up a few more HO-scale railway buildings for my Gotham layout. One of the better ones was JDs Furniture. The building needed some additional painting and washing.The most interesting part is the lovely (and brittle) fire escape down the side. I also painted a random factory of some kind.I finally ran out of decals so I broke down and ordered some online (along with some graffiti decals). I'll have to finish this building up when they come in.I also knocked off this oil tank, which will make a useful scenario objective and LOS block.I've also been making progress on finishing off the British rebasing in my War of 1812 project. I hope to have these done by the end of the month--there was quick a lot of paint touch-ups to do.

[EN/PL] Peloponnesian War #2 / Wojna Peloponeska #2 (Mortal Gods: Athenian Hoplites #1)

Hello everyone!Today I continue painting the Athenian army to the Mortal Gods system.I invite you to see the first base of Hoplites. My Athenians will have a coherent motif on the shield in the form of owls. I leave the dials more elaborately for the Mercenary Hoplites painted for them at the same time.Other entries:Mortal Gods core box set Athens at war. Peloponnesian war.

[EN/PL] Averland. Part III: Halfling Scouts / Niziołki zwiadowcy

Hello to you!Today the fourth part of the meeting with brave band from Averland, and more specifically with two halflings in the service of this state.       Some time ago I bought two archival models of the Games Workshop of small men and it's time to attach them to painted early soldiers.I invite you!Previous entries:Averland.

Finishing The Dead of Dunharrow... for now

I painted up 4 more Dead of Dunharrow, but this time the old metal variants of them for MESBG.This brings my regiment to 24 and the King of the Dead, nicely enough to line them out on War of the Ring sized trays of 8.Whom I duly painted up as well for them, so that presents them a lot nicer in the miniature cabinet now.Now, the splitting and filling out of the units with their equipment is perhaps something I`ll do in the far future, when the Pelennor plastics start showing up cheaply on second hands and bring and buys, but for now I prefer to keep them as a "mass" like they where in the Return of the King. So with that force for the moment ready, they can be put aside and I can turn my attention to readying another one, slowly building up the collection and reducing lead and plastic mountain as we go.The way is shut!

Mordheim – Chaos Carnival

Sometimes our workshop gets real modeling gems One of them is undoubtedly the Chaos Carnival, which I had the pleasure of painting some time ago. The models have a very oldschool atmosphere, which I tried to convey by painting. Just look at those ugly, bandit faces…. The team will be great for skirmish system like Mordheim. My favorite models are of course ridiculous Nurglings. I invite you to see the gallery! Commission painting services – minisforwar@gmail.com OR message on Facebook

Back to the Brushes 226

In amongst painting the flesh tones on approximately 60 ancient Greek Hoplites and skirmishers found a spare twenty minutes to block and wash this Caesarian Roman from Gripping Beast.This is a test figure to see how it goes using this approach to paint a small force for ADLG. Small as there are only so many figures available in the lead pile and thankfully this will remain so as Gripping Beast have no immediate plans to re-release this range in the near future.A few things need changed and perhaps the use of dark tone on the armour to lift it more but other than that happy with the result.Once based with his fellow legionnairies, shielded and Little Big Man transfers who will notice the speed painting.Back to painting flesh tones this evening.Cheers for now.

War of the Ring & Muddy CoC.

Hi! It was a long time, since my last post. I'm quite busy right now as I'm looking for a new home and that takes a lot of my free time. Until I will not solve that problem, my posts will be much shorter, than usual. Sorry about that. Today two games we recently had. First was War of the Rings and the second Muddy CoC. Witam! Upłynęło trochę czasu od mojego ostatniego posta. Jestem ostatnio bardzo zajęty, a to dlatego że szukam nowego mieszkania. Zajmuje mi to prawie cały wolny czas.

[EN/PL] Dwarf crossbowmen / Krasnoludzcy kusznicy

I warmly welcome!As part of the rest from the historical projects of the Crusaders and Ancient Greece,  two classic models of dwarf crossbowmen today.As there are many non-original models, and copy-lovers (who admit it themselves!), I would like to point out that my little ones are 100% original GW models, actually Marauder Miniatures. Both designs come from 1990, and were sculpted by Aly Morrison and Colin Dixon.The first dwarf could successfully serve at one of the royal troops as a commander in the years of splendor of dwarven kingdoms. Now he can be the captain of imperial crossbowmen, bitterly mentioning old times.A second crossbowman with a different appearance from his companion, which I expressed in a different painting, looks like a hunter or ranger from Tyrol or other mountain region of Germany and Switzerland.Both models I like very much both models, have huge tracts of charm (which is not to be found in AoS or WFB from edition 7 up) and will proudly feed the ranks of my Dwarf company.--------

Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game Rules Manual

The 6th edition of the Lord of the Rings game that Games Workshop released, and after years I jumped back on the bandwagon.As people know, in every hobby I practiced, be it wargames or Lego, I always hover to the Tolkien side of the things, as I'm a real lover of his works.  And it was no amazement that even with a VERY limited base at the club, I never the less went all in again last summer when the game was re-released.In the early days, I played the first three editions, which was basically the book that came with each new movie of Peter Jackson back then.  I skipped the 4th and 5th edition, as I wasn't present in the hobby anymore, but now blessed with a GF who likes (fantasy) wargaming, I'm getting those games in, initially with Battle Companies but slowly expanding the forces and he sizes of our games.  And I will be playing in some FHL tournaments later this year!The book contains of course no extended fluff section as other Games Workshop rulebooks, due to the fact that the story has be

AoS – Lord of Plagues

Nurgle is definitely not my favourite when it comes to the Pantheon of the Chaos Gods in the Warhammer universe. But I can’t pass by the whole line of well-designed models indifferently! One of them is undoubtedly Lord of Plagues. Swollen skin, open wounds and a solid axe give this model a real atmosphere.

Tanks for the Spanish Civil War

I am currently consolidating my projects, among them Bolt Action. The problem in that case aren't the vehicles, but the amount of miniatures you quickly end up with. Especially with the plastic kits (and then adding sprues from the sales), 30 something paratroopers, and 30 something grenadiers, and 30 something ... you get the picture. […]
