i've two archers to paint and finish and 13 pikemen, 3 made and started to paint then dip then matt vanish the lot then the pictures can go up. In the middle of painting my ogre hero so they are after him.

That gives me 28 pikemen, 20 archers, the ogre hero, 14 bearmen and 5 norse horsemen painted. Then another 9 halberdiers to do and i've got a unit of 14 halberdiers as well.

You'll just have to wait.
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

Those look a bit rubbish

Maybe, but they are Italian.

They probably look better painted. But I've never bought anything from that company, so don't know.

I'm going to Cold Wars in a couple weeks. I don't know if they have a US rep/distributor/presence,  but I'll see if anyone is selling them there and pick up a few if they look decent.

Regarding other manufacturers, it's a little bit personal  :icon_redface:, but I have been having a love affair with the Hobgoblins from 'Otherworld' miniatures for the last 6 months, I just adore them, probably because they are the best and closest representation I have seen of the original Hobgoblinm pictures in the original Monster Manual from Gary Gygax' world famous RPG, D+D.
I just love them, the sculpts, the paint work, the poses, the historical representation... the lot.

I'm not sure we want to know about that.

It reminds me of that particular miniature Soth posted elsewhere...

Now, if I invent some nifty dual base system, I might be able to use celts as maraduers in the future or something... Maybe...

Oh, just that if I can find a way to make celts on 20mm bases slip into 25mm bases if I would want to field them as Chaos maraduers, it would be a neat way to combine two armies.
Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!

I donīt think anyone will ever mind if you field them on 20 mm base and have a unit template that shows how they would look like with 25 mm bases Mr D Whitey is right....once again.

But one day some noisy children will be his peril.

I've got the same problem with my bearmen and norse marauders being on 20mm bases and needing themon 25mm for a chaos mortals army. I'm going to use the 25mm flat style bases, like you get in the perry miniatures boxes and blue tack to increase the base size.

Have a look at these first, I use them all the time to get troops already on Warhammer 20mm bases to fit snugly into being 25mm wide each without all the aggro, check it out...

Trays to allow figures on 20mm square bases to be ranked up as if they were on 25mm square bases.

Also, if you belong to a bonafide recognised gaming club you can apply for a handsome discount.

I had the same problem with the same minis....I solved that easy: I put them onto 25mm bases, since  GW rules state that you CAN put the models on the bigger size bases but not on smaller size. I can play them now as Chaos marauders or Bearmen.

Doesn't that upset the intricate an delicate balance of the Warhammer ruleset ?

I love these trays - tough and enough depth that they will take a sheet of metal for magnetising.
Of course the club discount of 15% helps too.

I just did a big order of 51 trays which was delivered a week or so ago - I think we have around 140 trays in total now.

I must have missed this. Where do GW rules state this?

Until now, I thought you had to use the standard base size (just think of terror and other "bubble"-effects).

WFB rules say infantry is on a base 20-25mm square, they dont say anything more than that about which infantry is on what base.

GW figures send out bases with their miniatures that is of a certain size depending on which race they are, but that isnt noted anywhere in the rules, certainly not on the GW UK website.

Putting your troops on a larger base disadvantages the person that does that anyway, its if there was a player that scaled down there would be a problem...

And I hope the reference to "...the intricate an delicate balance of the Warhammer ruleset"  was with a huge dollop of sarcasm?

Well, there are both advantages and disadvantages, depending on the respective models' rules.

I don't know whether I'd like a Shadow Mage on a 20x600mm base casting Crown of Taidron... :engel:

There is a base size docuemtn floating around somewhere. they just for some stupid reason don't have it on their website anymore - though for the most part it only covered off 6th ed armies...

Isnt it also in French? And therefore discounted in utterly lacking in value?
