Not sure what words to use in describing this. I read this over the last couple of days with the site open the whole time. Night reads, breaks and lunch at work and finally after dinner tonight. Magnificent and what an end fight. Congrats on this masterpiece.

I finished up my Goblin rocket team or rather "skyrocket" as its refereed to in 3rd edition. Nice little model, easy to paint up which provided a quick little interlude while I sort out and clean up all my wolf riders.


I'm a little at odds with a couple of the goblins, while I like the miniatures in general Im not too keen on the binoculars and goggles a little too WoW for me.

I know none of those are particularly heavily armoured but it was a coincidence that you too were looking for Tilean type crossbowmen so I was spurred by your post to reveal to all my researches.

Only yesterday I was scouring the net for 'city militia' style crossbowmen for my Tilean Campaign. I also had my Perry sprues out to count the number of crossbow arms I had.

I have already made some Perry xbows (kitbashed with some GW crossbowmen arms) for the Compagnie del Sole:



In the end though I couldn't be bothered with more cutting and glueing and trimming of plastic, so I looked at metal alternatives.

I already have some Mirliton ...



The following pics being on their site, which I really like:




I looked at some of the slightly unusual 'Casting Room Miniatures' (accessed via the Wargames Foundry page)




But in the end I ordered some Perry Metals ...


Two packs, plus the Mirliton I already have, throw in some command, and I'll have a unit of 20.

Good stuff

You should consider not even painting the eyes. It's so difficult to get it right that often it looks better with nothing there.

Managed to finish another one, fun to paint too!

Anti-Eternians - Anti-Battlecat

Now that He-Man received his trusty companion, we couldn't very well let Anti-He-Man be at a disadvantage when facing them. Like when Prince Adam calls on the power of Grayskull, Anti-He-Man draws from the power of Castle Hellskull to infuse himself and his pet with great power. Anti-Battlecat is every bit as strong as the regular Battlecat, but twice as vicious!


Anti He-Man and his Anti-Battlecat

The model is of course another Grenadier Miniatures Battlecat, with a blank lipped base from Fenris Games, to which I added the flagstone texture. I went back and forth a long time on the colours on this one. Most action figure customs for this creature use black armour and black body, with red stripes. I wanted a bit more contrast than that. Initially I planned to do red armour and light grey stripes, but the light grey on black didn't seem to offer enough contrast, so instead I went with red stipes and grey armour, but since I didn't want the light grey to dominate the model, I just used the shading colour and then washed it a couple times with thinned black, for a darker grey, leatherlike finish. Finally, I decided to paint the teeth red and the tongue grey, in keeping with the reversed colour palette these have going.





Battlecats face off:


A side by side comparison of the two variant colour schemes:


Man-At-Arms is clever enough to keep a safe distance while battling these foes:
