A squad here, a squad there

Here is a quick pic of some GZG alien mercenaries that I painted a few days ago. These were a test to see if my new wash over white undercoat technique scales up to 15mm. I'm really pleased with how these turned out. They painted up very quickly with a good result. I have few more packs the need to be painted.

In Medieval Russia, figures paint you!

Here are two units from my new 10mm Medieval Russian army for the Warmaster Medieval campaign that's starting up at the club. These figures are Kallistra with a few leftover Irregular and Pendraken mixed in for flavour. I really like the Kalistra Medievals, but they are huge! They are much taller than Pendraken and dwarf Irregular.

I tried to paint these a little brighter than usual. I think it went a little overboard on the blue. I'll have to tone it down on the next batch.

Over all, I have 7 units finished with another 8 to go to make 1000 points.

Guess Who's Back...

...back again, Joe is back, tell a friend...

Alright, school has has grabbed a great deal of my attention and I've neglected the blog a bit. However, I am back and I will hopefully get back to a more regular posting schedule.

I'm going to start some heavy playtesting for Blue Moon's new Galactic War I rules and I figured that I had Better beef up some of my 15mm sci-fi forces. I have been painting 10mm ancients for the last month and Its time for a change. Although stay tuned for pictures of my new medieval Russian army that I'm going to use in a club Warmaster medieval campaign.

Here are a few vehicles that I plan to use to bolster my gang militia that has been previously featured on this blog. I'm modelling the army after my concept of African militias that one sees on the news occasionally. These are the first three vehicles that I have converted from mainly GZG models. However the pick-up truck looking thing is made from a Pendraken 10mm "not aliens" colonial marine APC. I tore off the turret and turned it around backwards. I think it looks pretty good in 15mm.

I hope you enjoy the picture. Stay tuned for much more 15mm sci-fi as a hastily create two serviceable forces for GWI.
