Orc and Goblin boar chariots

I added a couple more chariots to the ever expanding Goblinoid army. The Orc chariot is pieced together from left over job lots. The Goblin chariot is the old Goblin King Chariot, however the Goblin king himself went missing and replaced by an appropriately mean looking gobbo.






I also finally finished painting a big Orc hut that's been kicking about my hobby desk for ten years half finished. Not great work but its done. Also added about eight more Orcs to my levied villager unit. These are really my paint jobs, I just cleaned up the chipped paint and re-did their bases to match mine.

Bye for now!

Goblin village

As seen in a the background of a few my previous pics here is a little better look at my Goblin village.
The huts are from Scotia Grendal's 'Goblin Stronghold' set, with the taller tower huts created by simply stacking them up. To help bulk them out a little I based the huts either individually or in multiples together and built fences and gardens around them to help give a lived in feel.

Most of the goblin villagers are from Four A Miniatures with a few citadel mixed in and a reaper Bones pig cart.









Thanks for looking!

Boneyard bits

Hello!

I have gotten a few things painted over the past couple months I just can't find the time to take proper pictures.

However, this morning I was messing around with a job lot of  goblins in desperate need of repairs. I am a sucker for cheap ebay auctions of busted up minis. Anyways, I finally found a use for all those Reaper Bones models I have laying about.  I must admit I am a little disappointed in many of the Bones models with the exception of the larger models and the price point, but they do prune easily enough.

And now I have seven more proper (mostly metal) Goblins on the painting line.



Hopefully some pics of painted minis coming soon.

By for now!

More Wolfriders

Another unit of wolfriders done.

This group is a bit of mixed bag. Some Marauder, some Citadel and few on Ral Partha wolves.




I'm currently working on some goblin villagers, once done I'll take some pics of them and maybe some better pics of the village I put together in the background.

Bye for now-

Rangers

The counts rangers are a hardy bunch of men (and women), skilled woodsmen and expert trackers. They patrol the woods and mountain passes, forming the first line of defense against the incursions greenskins.

The group is made up of all my odds and ends carrying bows or hunting crossbows.



I rounded off the unit with some of the new Oathmark humans. A nice kit of generic fighters and they make pretty good looking rangers types in my opinion


Some of my favorites here. From the left we have an Asgard/Viking Forge (Sternbow), a Citadel AD&D Ranger, Citadel Boromir (the new line) and another Citadel AD&D ranger.

More favorites. All three are Citadel, the Indian (I call him chief Falling Rocks) and the mountain man on the right are two of my favorite Citadel pieces and make perfect rangers.

I believe the chap on the left is from Grenadier, the dwarfess is a Reaper bones (Dwarf or just a full figured lass?) and the lad on the right is an old Tom Meier/Ral Partha elf.

I believe these are Ral Partha, two of which are from their old Dragonlance line. I'm not sure who makes the Robinhood looking fellow.


I also picked up a new scenery piece from a Hobby Lobby discount bin. Its one of those garden fairy decoration pieces but I think it fits in fine as a fantasy tree house and scales nicely.

Sister of Sigmar (Daughters of Freya)

Hi folks,

A couple weeks ago the Mad Viking graciously sent me a Sister of Sigmar for commenting on one of his videos.

So I painting her.  And that was all the inspiration I needed to finish painting off the few other Sisters Ive had kicking about.

The Bertha Bestraufrung I've had painted for a while and she's usually used as a warrior priestess in my Stirland army. I painted them in green rather then the traditional red to help match in with my Stirland army (Daughters of Freya?).





The Mad Viking has inherited the massive collection Steveb a long time member of the warhammer-empire.com.  The Mad Viking has taken on the incredible task of documenting and sharing Steve's massive collection. If your a fan of old school miniatures, massive painted armies, oldhammer, middlehammer etc, I highly recommend taking a look and subscribing to his youtube channel.

Have a nice day.

Lancer Miniatures Orcs unit completed

I finished up these guys a few weeks ago and finally got some photos of the them.

There's 27 of them. Not sure why I didn't just round up to 30 when I bought them but oh well. Maybe if Lancer Miniatures ever adds anything else to their catalog of interest I'll pick up three more.

So here they are 27 brutish meat headed Orcs.



A few of the new ones I painted since my last post.


I tried out some test plaid on a few of them. I definitely need to work some more on that.


Bye for now-
