Hooray! All the fun of getting new miniatures without my having to pay for or paint them myself!  :wink:

I painted my final entry for the Old World Army Challenge in June. Wood elf scouts, plus a few extras including a small forest dragon. Pics a the site, below:

I really like the Cauldronborn Powrie that I painted recently to use as non-RoC daemons and have been considering other figures to use for the same purpose. Looking at what I've already got in bins I came up with Crucible goblins. A few were already painted long ago in dark goblin-y green, but I'm looking at an alternate color and tried a test figure in pale white on one of the unpainted figures.





I like how it looks. I might try re-painting just the flesh on one of the green ones to see how practical that will be. I don't really want to repaint them from bare metal.

I found it! I'll have to finish painting it after all these years! The goblin bat rider that was produced along with the infantry figures.



And here are the old goblins with the green flesh repainted, alongside the freshly painted test figure. Next, on to the rest of the unpainted ones.

I'm already trying to come up with an idea for another unit of non-Warhammer/RoC canon daemons. I'm extremely happy with re-purposing these goblins and the Cauldronborn Powrie, but I want even more now!  lol

So many original and wonderful looking figures and painted so well. Always something suprising on your blog  :icon_smile:.

Those are pretty cool miniatures, it's interesting to see what happens when you free yourself from not only GW minis but also their aesthetic.

Though, that is a lot of feathers to be fair! ;)

Thanks all! And I like the feathers.  :biggriin:


I painted the 5 Cro's Goblin Raiders from Alternative Armies to go with the previously painted Hob-Goblin Raiders (also AA) for use as a small unit of half-orc skirmishers/raiders. They have a nice retro, motley look to them.

I think you count as being in soft cover. I just shot an arrow at you and missed!

I thought he was channelling his 'Evil Overlord'

or was it his Mike Myers impression - not sure?

I did go back and look at the minis - honest.  :engel:

Hahaha -- thanks all.  :-D


Unfortunately, I couldn't get one before the OWAC ended. But nonetheless, I now have a Zoat and I'm thrilled to add it to my collection, and the wood elves I just completed in particular.

Just got it this week, and it headed straight to the top of the painting list!

The other thing I bought was a bargain purchase of a resin inn from Blue Moon Manufacturing. Looks great, but trying to do a dry fit today I couldn't get the parts to align like they do in the second pic (stolen from the online shop.) Once I get that resolved and painted, I expect it will look great, though!

Heat them up with a hairdryer or in hot water. It will make them a bit more bendable to get into the right shape, then run them under a cold tap to set.

I should have been more specific. The pieces are cast perfectly flat/square. Quite excellent casting, in fact! But the two projections from the main building are both longer than the roofs above them. I think I will need to saw about 1/4" off the back of each.

Had to scale the photo down to really understand the level of detail here. Superb painting!

Got a couple of orc command packs from Scotia Grendel for cheap a little while ago so I could see how the figures looked & scaled up in person. Had been considering them as options for my ongoing & loosely defined half-orc project. Left is Great Orc, right is Stygian orc.

Nice!

The leftmost giant has superbly painted skin on his thighs.

Elsewhere, I think the skin of the giants is a tad bit below your usual level. The transitions from darker to lighter skin are sharp, the red noses maybe too reddish. Might be the lighting. And I wouldn't dare to say this if I didn't think the painting is good, just not the jaw-dropping smoothness I've accustomed to see from you.  :-)
