I have launched a new foray into 28mm Napoleonics centered on the battle of Waterloo. The first effort is the growing Allied Army of the Netherlands. The page will expand over time with new units as I complete them. For now, we have the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th British Infantry Divisions, and an initial start on the cavalry. Some samples below but check out the page for all photos.
I got around to photographing a Warhammer Fantasy Battle Skaven army that I painted up as an “army scale” pilot project with GW Contrast Paints a while ago. Came out pretty nicely and was super efficient to paint. Detailed photos can be found here.
40k Imperial Guard
In a brief burst of motivation, I updated the basing of my ancient Imperial Guard force. The full collection is here. Goes to show that consistent basing can make even 30+ year old paint jobs look reasonable on the tabletop!
Dystopian Wars Kingdom of Britannia
A small Kingdom of Britannia force from the old starter box. These came with my Prussian Empire set as a freebie. All painted up now which completes the Dystopian Wars collection for me (not going to add any more as it is a out of production). More images here.
Dystopian Wars Prussian Empire
A few years ago the Dystopian Wars game system was shutting down and I stumbled upon a closing sale somewhere. So of course I bought everything that they had. After lots of time in the “to do” drawer, I worked up the energy to paint up this Prussian Empire force. Detailed pictures can be found here.
First experiment with Contrast Paints at Warmaster scale was a big success. The Lizardmen army joins the collection. Now I just need to wrap up the other half-dozen armies 🙂
Another warband joins the club. Classic paint scheme for some classic models. Full warband can be found here.
My Mordheim collection is slowly reaching completion. Lots of personas still to paint – and a few warbands – but it’s getting there. From the “core” warbands, I only need to finish the Amazons and Marienburgers. Add to this a few custom warbands (Wood Elves, Lizardmen, Dark Elves and Chaos Warriors). Plus lots of individual additions here and there. 360 models done, 148 left to go! At least nothing else is being released anymore (except that at current count I have to paint 200+ Warcry, Underworld and Cursed City models as the spiritual successor games to Mordheim :)).
EPIC Adeptus Mechanicus
The Adeptus Mechanicus was my last big unpainted army for EPIC, mostly because the list changed over the years which rendered many of the originally assembled models obsolete. But ultimately I overcame my own reservations, bought a few more models to fill in the list gaps, and finished the lot. The full army page can be found here. At this point, only the Titans and Knights are left to complete my EPIC collection. 70 models/bases to go but 2,400 models/bases are finished. Not bad!
WFB Empire Flagellants
Slowly finishing up the remaining Empire units. This big block of Flagellants is the last “big formation” on the list. Now it’s down to the special characters and the big items (e.g. new style griffons, etc.). The unit filler is based on the old War Altar with a more suitable Prophet of Doom riding it.
Starting a Blackstone Fortress campaign during the lockdown. Here are the heroes from the main boxed set. Baddies and expansions are under way.
