Spearmen

I finally wheeled the ol' camera out for some picks if my spearmen. Still without their shields, but I still haven't got a hold of the right ones, so untill then they will have to go shieldless.


And here they are revealing my mediocre painting skills. taking such revealing photos makes it obvious that I will have to fix a few things when I get around to painting their shields, but for now they are done.
Also yesterday I prepped and undercoated 10 archers and today I stripped 2 boltthrowers and their crew.

Eltharion

Eltharion the Grimm.
Such an iconic model and one I dreamed of owning when I was a kid.
My first painted army was a high elf army for 4th/5th edition. I actually had a griffon model, but it was deathclaw with a high elf silver helm riding it. I pined for Eltharion on stormwing back then, but my focus shifted and I've painted severeal armies and even another high elf army, without ever getting the model.

A couple of years ago I finally visited ebay, and got one. Took a while to paint it, as stuff happened but here it is in all its glory.

He was a lot of fun to paint and it motivated me to move along with the stripping and repainting my original High elf army from back in the day.
Ebay will have to be visited to get the missing pieces, but slowly I will make a 4th/5th ed style High elf army.

Nostalgia hammer

So. What happened excactly? Well, life happened. Warhammer as I new it died, job and family took a lot of my time etc. You know, stuff.

Well I'll try to post some pics soonish, but my "new" project is coming along nicely. A loong time ago I believe I posted some pics of a unit of sea guard, ever since then my joy of painting sort of diminished and the games where few and far between. They still are, but my painting mojomis back on and I've vaulted into a large pile of 4th/5th ed. Warhammer high elves. I've painted Eltharion on stormwing and am putting the last work in on a unit of 20 spearmen.(I've shown the griffon and rider on the oldhammer facebook page, but will put pics up here as well.

Hope you are all well. Since you ask, I'm not at all gutted that I missed the old world army challenge. No sir, not one bit. ;)

I made a game!

Oh, yeah merry christmas and a happy new year. I hope santa was good to you, he certainly was to me. New brushes made their way to my hobby table so I'm very happy.

Oh and all this free time during the holidays and flu stricken wife has left my evening wide open. So naturally a painted tons of minis, no? No. I made a game, well to be honest it still needs a lot of work but the basic rules are ready to go for testing of the core mechanics. I thought it would be fun to share on the off chance that someone felt like trying out a skirmish wargame for small warbands, like you know, noones made one of those before. They have? Oh ok, but no one made a game like this and since I couldn't quite find one to suit my tastes this one will do nicely. Have a look if you dare, since I did it all on the iPad it needs a lot of tender love and care in the layout department and proofreading, but the core mechanics are sound(and I hope fun) there's only one scenario so far but more will come. 


Oh and I've started work on some loot counters for general use in wargaming.


Cheers.

A bag of gold!

Or, more correctly, a bag of lead. But to me its pure gold. Pics further down, but first a little rambling.

It's been awful quiet on the blog for a while since i've been using my time for other stuff. I have game mastered a huge siege game and plan on a second one in the future. It was so much fun and really brought all of us back to a much happier and simpler time as we played with everything we had from three factions. I'll get some pics up later, promise.

I've not painted a damn thing for more than a month! Urgh but sleep deprivation just does that.
I have however started writing my own skirmish game. I've started collecting small warbands for skimish gaming in general and this is wherenthe bag of gold comes in. Behold the loot. 7£ worth.


See anything you like? Well too bad cause I'm keeping it all!

Back

Ok, been a while.
I've playing and painting a lt lately.
I've been painting all sorts of different things for various of my modern armies and then I decided to do something new. Well not really new. A while ago I painted e test model for a high elf army. I then shelved it and did other things for a while but it was there in the bag of my head nagging all the time.

I really love high elves and what I am about to show you is the start of my 3rd high elf army through my gaming career. The models are the Jess Goodwin seaguard from ages past and some of my favorite models ever.





Hope you like them.

The heat is ON

Man it sure does get hot in these rhinos!

Really, for the last month the weather has been killing me! Its hot outside and inside and all through the night even. I don't cope well in the heat. I don't paint. I can't sleep. Uugh. Hopefully some rain will come soon and I can get back to painting.
