It is also not our last word about the big armies… A quick reminder of what is in the army: Pikemen Halabardiers Crossbowmens Shooters Longswords Mage & Two Generals The Allied Ogre Unit Cavalry and a few additional heroes will appear in a separate entry. I invite you to see the photos, as well as check older posts in the Warmaster category Commission painting services – minisforwar@gmail.com or Messenger.

Warmaster – Empire Pikemen – Part V

Hello! After a long break with Warmaster, I would like to present you with the one more post devoted to the army of the Empire. These are of course Empire Pikemens. Thirty bases holds two hundred and forty models in 10mm scale. If you’ve ever wondered what makes small scales special, it’s the scale of battles. Only here can you feel the atmosphere of a real battle, where the troops represented by hundreds of figurines clash with each other. In the next entry you will find a group photo of the whole army, so don’t forget to visit the website regularly and follow us on social media. If you want us to paint your models – minisforwar@gmail.com or Messenger.

Naval and nostalgic wargames

To continue the preparation of more Oldhammer, it is time to strip some plastic. I showed you the Rhino the last time, as well as some stripping of metal parts. Now we move on to the next level of complexity, larger kits and more fragile materials. Get a properly sized container and get on to […]

[EN/PL] Thorin's Company / Drużyna Thorina: Gloin, Bofur & Oin (Scibor Miniatures)

Warmly welcome!Long, ah long I haven't painted anything from Scibor's Monstrous Miniatures. Therefore, it's time to make up for it and today I invite you to the first post about Tolkien's Thorin's Company.        In this series, I will present the team of dwarves, and paint which is painted on, followers of the Lonely Mountain. In the first entry Gloin, Bofur and Oin. I painted the last two a few years ago and now I just changed the names on the bases to match the design.      What is new is the dwarf model that will serve me as Gloin. Just painted, while maintaining the characteristic features to fit the rest.I hope you like my idea of alternative dwarves from "Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien.GloinQuest for EreborIn TA 2799, Glóin was known to have fought in the Battle of Azanulbizar, the last battle of the War of the Dwarves and Orcs. In TA 2941, Glóin and his brother Óin, along with his cousins Dwalin and Balin, were among the Dwarves accompanying Thorin and Company during

Oldhammer Space Marine Rhino Part 1

A Rhino is probably one of the, if not the, most sold vehicle kits from the Warhammer range. It has been around far before the 2nd edition of Warhammer 40k and as the kit lending its chassis to a couple of further Space Marine vehicles quite numerous. When I got to know the kit in […]

Korea, Tanks and even more Boats

I am currently preparing the Cruel Seas review, along with the Flotillas and larger ships. I mentioned the resin ships in my last short update, Civilans, Romans and Boats, and I find it very appealing to build something completely different to the very dominant 28mm kits that I usually cover. Assembly goes fast, as does […]

Gutlagg the executioner and friend - C23 Ogres

 Alright so it's been quite a while since I last picked a brush and although I still knew which end to use, I had to get a model that would boost my painting mojo up. And you know what kind of models do that right ? Yes indeed, a Jes Goodwin ogre was probably the best pick !Now I've been meaning to paint my ogre collection for a while but you know how it is, there's always a new project, I also had this crazy man-bear to paint for a friend so I thought I could paint both of those for him as a token of gratitude for his renowned kindness and generosity !Read Moar Skullz »

BOYL 2019 - Realm of Chaos mini Campaign

Hi All,On the Friday a group of us met up at Warhammer World and played in a linked campaign using warbands we had rolled up from the Realm of Chaos books. We rotated opponents and played three scenarios.Here is the campaign from my Champion's perspective.So I got very lucky with objective placement in the first game. I barely outlasted my opponent in the second game, we apparently attacked each other with the marked unit. In the third game the bewitched/possessed sword really messed with me. I had won it after the first scenario and it essentially made my champion useless for the next two battles.Anyway, loads of fun, fantastic models and bonkers shenanigans occurring.I may do a break down of my warband next before moving on to the next battle report.Thanks for looking.

BOYL 2019 - An Overview

Hi All,Well, I made it to BOYL this year and overcame my hang ups about driving abroad and doubts about my ability to finish my figures, or my skill at the hobby.I took tons of pictures, but I tried to distill it down to a few pages in this comic report. Enjoy.I wish I had talked to more people, but I didn't know who everyone was and I wasn't sure how to talk to some of the luminaries of Warhammer. But that's on me, everyone at the event was very nice.Anyway, as I said in the comic report, you should try to make it to this  event if you enjoy the old games and figures.I'd also like to welcome Alan Luiz to the blog. Thanks for following.

Since Wednesday the Colony 87 Kickstarter is online. The range moved from Jon Boyce to Crooked Dice and has its third wave crowdfunded. And the campaign was funded within 15 minutes (with myself among the first backers!) and now already has unlocked the initial four stretch goals. Might be even more as there is a […]

BOYL 2019 - Oldhammer weekend....

Once again the trip to East Stoke in the heart of English Civil War country was upon us......Bring Out Your Lead, hosted by the Ansells at Wargames Foundry HQ, is a 3 day roller coaster of wargaming and the meeting of like-minded people who love the hobby. Many thanks to Diane, Maria, Alisa, Lucy, Harry and Sam as usual.....food and drink kept everyone going into each evening. Unfortunately Marcus was full of man-flu this year so kept himself quarantined away from us all. I've already booked the hotel for next year.....31st July-2nd August 2020.I arranged to meet Mark (Asgard) Stevenson at Games Workshop first thing on the Friday... I was quite worried as I'd encountered no traffic problem all the way from Stockport to Nottingham and felt sure something must have been looming but no, I got there in 2 hours as per Sat Nav. Uncanny. We did the rounds there (including a rather nice bacon sandwich and cuppa in Bugman's Bar)...The gaming hall is very impressive....the Perry Twins, amongst others, helped paint the
