Hospitaller Commanders & Mounted Sergeants

I didn’t get time to take photos of these earlier (things have been a little crazy). But they were ready for the tournament a few weeks back so that is the most important thing. These are commanders, which are essentially just tokens in ADLG so they can be on almost any sized bases. I use…

Crusader Heavy Spear

Some more miniatures for my Crusader army. This time they’re not Hospitallers, but rather general Heavy Spear from the period. There’s not much rhyme or reason to the shield patterns. There’s only about 6 colours (white, black, yellow, blue, green and red), but the random mising makes it look quite colourful. Particular when you compare…

Hospitaller Sergeants with Crossbow

Many of the colours (armour, coats, straps, skin, etc) are the same as for the Brother Knights. However, there are a couple of new bits: Crossbow: Wood – Base: Sandalwood (SC-26) Wood – Wash: Sepia Shade (VGC 73.200) Metal – Base: Gunmetal Grey (VMC 70.863) Wash: Black Wash (VGC 73.201) Quiver: Same as the Brother…

Knight Hospitaller – Brother Knights

This is the start of a Medieval army for Art de la Guerre. Rather than go something nice and generic that’s brightly coloured and could do any of a dozen lists I’ve gone for something different. I’m painting a Knights Hospitaller army in black: which is none of those things. However, it’s a project I…

Soviet Navy Fleet

I’ve been a bit slack posting, but still fairly productive in my painting. This Cruel Seas fleet is another paid job for a friend. I’ve mixed the colours up a little this time, and made them very, very dirty. I’m pretty happy with the result, I think some of the chipping could be a little…

Cruel Seas Torpedoes & Val Bomber

I’ve painted three sets of torpedoes for myself and a couple of commissions and bright old me decided to do them all together in a batch. Sure it was efficient, but doing the same thing 24 times tests my patience. I’ve done a couple of different colour schemes to help game play; each torpedo belongs…

German U-Boat

Just a quick post of a one off model I painted as part of the IJN commission. It’s not IJN, but rather a German U-Boat that was the bonus model. Super simple scheme, but I’m pretty happy with how it looks.

Japanese Coastal Boat Fleet – Part 1

It really is Feboatary. I’m painting an IJN fleet for a friend and this is the progress thus far: the Sampans and the Kamikaze boats. This first post is the crazy stuff from the fleet box. Sampans: I think this will be the only sailboats I’ll be painting for Cruel Seas. I’m not sure if…

German Schnellboots

Cruel Seas is a new 1:300 scale Naval game created by Warlord Games. I’ve got a soft spot for Naval miniatures and on an impulse I picked up a box of the Schnellboots, because they’re just so damn pretty. I’ve since picked up a full German fleet and I’m also in the middle of painting…

Balaeric Slingers

These are the last miniatures I’ll be painting for my Carthaginians for a while. As a force they’re pretty much finished; I’ve got well over 200 points in LADLG terms and I don’t think there’s much more useful I can add. The last little unit for this force is 4 bases of Balearic Slingers (LI…
