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…

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…

Saviours II

This is the last batch of miniatures from here’s Neegan. They’ve been done for a while, but I haven’t taken many pictures for a little while. First up is Laura. I’ve gone with a theme of Army Surplus Raider for her: uniform green pants and shirt, green pack and desert tan boots. Skin: Base: Sandalwood…

Saviours I

Mantic Games‘ Here’s Neegan was one of my gaming Christmas presents. I haven’t played it yet, but the current plan is to play the scenarios at the club with a few clubmates. We’re aiming for 4-Feb, so that means I need to get painting them. The good thing is I don’t have a heap to…

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…
