Hi, just a quick one for now. Another batch of Ironbreakers done...

Just need to work on the shields..

Thursday, 26 December 2013

Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you were all on Santa's good list.
This could be my last post of the year and thought I'd share a wee project I did in the run up to Christmas as it was a present for the missus, Kathryn. She loves Dr Who!
I am not entirely sure how popular Doctor Who is outside of the UK but here goes anyway, hope you like it.
Unfortunately the 'Police Box' transfers didn't turn up in time but when they do I'll post another pic.
The Doctor (David Tennant) and Rose Tyler (Billie Piper).


Meanwhile on the Dwarf front I have just finished some Ironbreakers...

As with the armoured knights I've enjoyed playing about with washes and glazes on the armour to try and liven things up a bit.

Starting to make some real progress with the Miners. This lot are almost done...

Call me lazy but I cut off the candle flames as I wasn't happy with the result. I may add some wicks later on. I figured they'd probably get blown out on a battlefield anyway!

Up next will be the command squad and the miner from the 'drunk dwarfs' set. I still need to think about the actual standard too.

I'm making some progress on the miners, shouldn't be much longer lol.
I think the mistake I made with these is trying to batch paint 20 of them, I definitely won't be doing that again.

I did try painting the flames of the candles but just wasn't happy with them so..I chopped them off!
I figured they would be alight all the time so why not.

I've also started some armoured knights by White Knight. Can't recommend these sculpts highly enough. Very pleased with them so far.

I'm on a roll.

Norse and ME33s added under the Citadel Miniatures tab.

Time for some painting!


Saturday, 19 October 2013

It's been a long time coming but I've managed to start updating the Marauder section with the MM10s, MM11 Command, MM15 Command and most of the MM16 range too. I took quite a few pictures today including the Citadel Norse and the ME ( Middle Earth) 33 Dwarfs.


Hopefully tomorrow I can add on the Norse section. Even the though a lot are yet to be painted I still think I'm making some progress.
You can see the results by clicking on the Marauder tab at the top of the page.
More to come very soon.

Finally finished another handful of clansmen. I've added some new shields to this lot and am planning to replace the previous ones as I wasn't entirely happy with the foundry shields.


I've decided to take a wee break from clansmen for a bit to concentrate on a unit of the old marauder miners. Watch this space.


Tuesday, 10 September 2013

Very slow progress I'm afraid, but hopefully this handful of clansmen are nearly done.

I'm currently working on the blues (my favourite colour lol), wood and leather next.


Hopefully I'll be back with the completed pictures very soon.

Trying to move swiftly on, here are the next lot reporting for duty!

Monday, 10 June 2013

Another 5 Marauder Clansmen done, plus one from the previous batch. I mistakenly added a shield to a plated gauntlet...oops!

Unfortunately the super glue removed a bit of paint so the gauntlet has been retouched and is how it should be.

That's 17 done so far. I've already started the musician and am making quite good progress there. All I need now is to choose the next 5 and crack on.

Here are some WIP shots of the next batch of five Clansmen.

All being well I should have then finished after the weekend.

I just need to finish the blues and leathers on most of them and try and add a bit of variation to the chainmail.

Another batch of Marauder Clansmen done, 11 in total now. Slow progress but it's progress.


Friday, 3 May 2013

The first five of the Marauder Clansmen are done. I still can't make my mind up about the shields yet but have decided to go with some shields from Foundry, they will do for now.

I've had a few suggestions on Bugman's Brewery to try some woodgrain shields which I quite like the idea of so I'll have to take a look at what's on offer.


A closer look at the shields....

Sunday, 28 April 2013

It's been a strange month it all started with painting some Night Goblins (getting a bit bored of them now...) then onto some Marauder Clansmen, unfortunately I only got as far as the basecoat.
Then I kind of drifted onto LOTR -  Knights of Minas Tirith, a couple of Rohan Warriors and then back to the clansmen again.
I'm happy to say the progress was a lot better this time around and I thought I'd share it....

As things are I still need to finish the leather and wood weapons etc, the eyes and then decide on shields before moving on.

I've got a rough idea on shields but am not completely happy with them yet....more soon.
