Off to a flying start so far this year in terms of finishing units anyway.

Here are the Ironbreakers, the shields are the current version from plastic warriors.

Really pleased with them and glad that they are out of way now.

Time to get back to the old metal and continue the quest.

The Marauder Miners are done...

The eagle-eyed amongst you will spot a few additions to the original releases including the 'drunk' miner and Krudd from the Grudge of Drong.

I went for muted metals and darker gauntlets to show of the brighter beards and skin tones, I think it works quite well.

Ironbreaker shields coming soon...

Ironbreakers are done....apart from the shields. For those of you not familiar with my thread at Bugman's Brewery, shields are the bane of my life. I always seem to struggle with finding shields.

I do have the original Ironbreaker shields for this unit but just cannot decide on a colour scheme to fit in with the rest of the army. They are currently drowning in Dettol just in case I can't find an alternative.


Maybe a blue background with a bronze axe? I've tried other shields but there is so little to choose from these days, I dislike the current plastic shields, the previous edition plastic shields with the choice of three icons are too small in my opinion. I've exhausted the Hasslefree range (the good ones anyway).

If anyone has any good ideas or knows of anyone producing nice shields please post a link, please!

I've also finished 10 armoured knights from White Knight Miniature Imperium

I'll be entering them in a Unit Painting Challenge at the Brewery, closing date is 15th Jan.
Really enjoyed painting these, I hope you like them.
