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.


Thanks for looking,

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.

Orctober 2018. Lancer Miniature Orcs

I took a step away from goblins for the month and knocked out a handful of Orcs from Lancer Miniatures.
I bumped into these guys a couple times on the internet and I think I was vaguely aware of their kickstarter a little while back but about a month or so ago folks started posting their pictures of these guys painted up and that was all the inspiration I needed to buy a bunch. Not to mention they are affordable imo and they are METAL!

They can be found here if you're interested:
https://lancerminiatures.com/product-category/28mm/28mm-orcs/

I quite like these guys. They are big beefy Orcs probably closer in style to what GW was putting out with their plastic kits in the late 90's and aughts but with a little less exaggeration. The sculpting is good, not knock your socks off good but detailed and interesting enough to give them a lot of charm.

I've only had time to finish 11 of them so far, enough to show off for Orctober. Hopefully I'll get the  rest finished up next month.






A quick size comparison with some older orcs. They are a smidgen taller and thicker arms. They'd probably make excellent big'uns but I suspect I'll just use them as regular old Orc boys.
(The Orcs to the left and right of the centered black Orc are Lancer Miniatures)

That's it until next month. Happy Halloween!

The Doom Dogs Goblin Wolf Riders

Finally got these guys done. 18 Goblin wolf riders.

These guys for now will be the core of my Goblin cavalry. Kitted out with light armor, spears and shields they are the closest thing my Goblins have to heavy cavalry.

I still have a couple more units of wolf riders to complete but for now they'll have to wait until after Orctober.

The charge of the Doom Dogs!





Now to rummage up something more Orcy for Orctober.

Tootles,

Goblin "Skyrocket"

Hello,

I finished up my Goblin rocket team or rather "skyrocket" as its refereed to in 3rd edition. Nice little model, easy to paint up which provided a quick little interlude while I sort out and clean up all my wolf riders.

I'm a little at odds with a couple of the goblins, while I like the miniatures in general Im not too keen on the binoculars and goggles a little too WoW for me.


 Bye for now,
