Two More Dwarf Troops

 Two more standard troops. One may be a guard, actually. He's certainly leaning on his spear enough to have been standing watch for a few hours! An old Harlequin figure.

I really should have done something with the mould line on the right hand figure, but oh well, maybe next time.

The Trouble with Orcs (Part 7)

 A Grenadier Orc with Halberd. As I hinted at in the previous orc I gave this one an intermediate angled prime of grey between the black and white zenithal. It seems to have worked to a certain extent, the large amount of chain mail on this lad maybe lessens the impact. One thing I've taken from this figure however is that I'm going back to doing normal eyes, not just red fill. I much prefer it.

VSF Power Armour

A Eureka Miniatures Power armoured British soldier.

Not managed much painting recently for a multitude of reasons, but this weekend unexpectedly found myself giving this fellow a repaint. A ready painted Ebay purchase many moons ago, he was painted in  what I'd call "British Racing Green", so quite dark. Decided to lighten things up a bit with a Khaki colour scheme. The pauldron was crying out for some insignia, so I braved an attempt at a Union Jack. It'll not pass the RSMs inspection, but recognisable on the table so that'll do. My favourite part of the sculpt has to be that the leg armour is clearly modelled on cricket pads!
