Well, I surpassed the goal for September in the Tale of Many Gamers.  310 points on Pirazzo's lost legion.  One of my favourite minis from the GW range.  I painted up 25, but 8 of them are actually warlord games armoured pikemen.  They are pewter models, and they paint up well!  The only bummer to this unit is that 10 of them, inc command, had a mishap with some clumpy primer.  In person its not too bad, but blown up on a picture its pretty noticeable.





Also, for those who wanted a size comparison for the foundry merc ogre painted as an orc, here he is with his buddy Pirazzo:

Looks great!  Insert clapping hands, etc.  The colors are bright and cheery for the warhammer world.

I still love your ogre/orc.  He wins another cool award.

Nice autumnal bases on the pikemen.

Thanks, I had the vision of a mercenary company marching off to their last campaign before the winter weather sets in.  Sure, the bases won't match other armies they would play, but you gotta mix it up sometimes  :happy:

Finally got around to taking some pics from my october entry.  Without further ado:

Rugluds armoured orcs x12: 214 points


Ruglud, the champion, was a converted black orc big boss with a head swap and a hand swap using a plastic black orc, an empire xbow, and an orc blade:


I also magnetized the shield in case I want to swap it out later


Next up, one ogre, LA and GW, 44 points:




Army to date:
25 pirazzos - 310 pts
12 Rugluds -  214 pts
1 ogre, LA GW -  44 pts

Total: 568 points

Woodland Scenics Autumn foliage would be my guess.

Anyway Timbor, nice job sir but why purple for the Orcs and Ogre?

Yeah, I use the autumn flock from GF9

I think I got a bit too much of it on the Ruglud's, I might pull some off later.

@SOF - I chose purple for the colour scheme for my orc army.  I like the way purple looks with the green, so I kept it.  Also, the ogres were modelled to have come from an orc tribe, so they assumed the purple colours too.

Well nicely done....but I always think purple to 'regal' a color for orcs. Looks good though.

November update - despite being busy, I got some stuff done!

First off, paymaster! (Armour Silver Steel, Luckstone, Great Weapon - 109 pts):





The last picture here is meant to show his moneybag that fell on the ground


The idea behind this guy was that he is a merchant accountant from Kislev.  He carries his account book with him everywhere - even into battle!  He has been known to crack it open in the heat of combat to jot down notes about which soldiers are fighting valiantly, and thus deserve a bonus, and which ones are running cowardly - thus deserving nothing!  Sure helps to boost morale!

Next up, 5 Heavy Cavalry w musician - 120 points:



These are gripping beast medieval russian cavalry, with one of them being Byzantine Tagmatic cavalry.  The scale is not too bad compared to the old GW unarmoured horses, and the riders are just a touch smaller than gryphon legion cavalry.  Detail is somewhat less though.  I have another group of 5 that will be added to these, and will make a nice large block of knights.  They are supposed to be from Kislev as well - they travel with the paymaster, acting as protectors.

All in all, fun stuff to paint.  Glad I finally got around to painting my paymaster guy.  I did the conversion like a year ago.

Army shot:



Total points: 797

Hopefully December will be a nice, productive month for me  :happy:  I have several ideas in the works.

Some efforts from December.  Much of it, aside from visiting family, was spent preparing for A5 by writing fluff, and building this guy:

Moddin the troll, possessed by the spirit of Ennio Mordini:

Next, I kitbashed 10 duellists using some models I had as well as archers + pistolier bits, painted in a kislev colour scheme:

Moddin makes me happy.  I really want to give him a goofy name and put him in a very angry circus act.

You have successfully combined one of the best kits of 2010 with Empire conversion efforts.  I applaud you, sir!

Skeletorcs!  I finally decided to paint up some of my cursed company and an old metal skellie.

Long time no update!

I was not completely idle over the past few months, though licensing exams, final exams, and a baby boy have kept hobby time at a minimum!

A few things have been finished though.  I think it was late march or early april when I finally got my ROB board finished, as well as this hirst arts tower:







By the end of the animosity 5 campaign, I had finished painting my mad cap brewing squad.  The base is nice and full, but it consists of a cart with the brewing pot, a doom diver catapult (to launch the brew if needed to act as a stand in hot pot), the crew, and some miscellaneous snotlings, random weapons, etc.













Finally, last night I finished 4 models from my next duellist squad.  2 of them are artizan looting landsknechts, the other 2 are some old citadel fighters from the 80s that I got in a trade - first time they have seen paint in over 20 years!  One was labelled a poacher, and the other a scout.  I set up the closest thing I have to an actual special photo booth for minis, and it turned out pretty well I think.  I was going to take some more pictures, but my camera died...







Im pretty happy with how these turned out.  My face painting skills are getting to the point where I am not completely ashamed to show closeups.  Still have a way to go though.  My main problem is that I get impatient after spending a few hours on the same figure...

Finally catching up on this thread, and really like those russian cavalry a ways back.  The Byzantine figure also seems to fit in as their leader.

Like the duelists, troll, and brewing team, too.

The terrain boards are outstanding.  Like the tower as well.

Well done! :icon_biggrin: :icon_cool: :eusa_clap: :::cheers:::
