Additional Chaos Dwarves and more

Two more to add to the Chaos Warband. Both from Ral Partha again. Not really any notes to make about them other than they were yet again fun to paint. (Shame I forgot to brush off some loose flock before taking this picture!)

Also, as before, I painted up a single 15mm adventuring Knight. The thought originally was that he was to be clad in the same coloured armour as the two 28mm Dwarves, but once I started painting him I realised that we wasn't entirely clad in armour. In the end he looks like he's picked up pieces of armour as he's managed to afford them - very much an RPG character.

And finally a quicky to bump up the monthly painting total. A stretch goal from a Ral Partha Kick Starter (but available online) is the animated broom - even if my wife does say it looks like the Peperami guy in a hoola skirt! Will no doubt appear in a Frostgrave game as a construct.

Retained Troopers (First Squad)

Some Old Retained Troopers from Alternative Armies

As some background to the colour scheme I've used here, back in the days when Ebay was only an auction site for amateurs, I picked up a few 28mm versions of these lads, all sprayed a golden colour with a couple of highlights. I always meant to repaint them but never got round to it and they had quite a few battles. So when I found their little brothers in my lead pile it was obvious I had to replicate the colour scheme!

Happy the way they have come out, especially how well the backpacks have appeared!

15mm Walls

Not the most exciting subject matter, but I thought I'd show my painting of TT Combat's 15mm mdf walls. Pretty solid with an easy paint job. The only extra might be a light spray of a textured spray paint to avoid the "long and flat" mdf  surface.

Height wise they are well set for figures shooting over. They are obviously pretty durable being mdf as well!

New Adventurers

Whilst paintng other projects I've started adding the odd one or two figures from the pile to dab at during the process. It help keep interest up and gets a few characters ready for play.

The Trouble with Orcs (Part 3)

Orc 3, and you're not going to get more classivc than a 1980's Grenadier Orc. The higher lead content from this era means I lost count of how many times the halbard blade came off (OK, 4 if you're asking and I know only the first one counts againt the metal!)
