Title: Don's GoT
Post by: DonVoss on August 06, 2017, 08:46:29 AM
Okay I am late on the bandwagon... lol

But inspired by the new episodes I started my own Game of Thrones-Project.
I try to paint up a few factions for an intended multiplayer, with lots of action, treason, murder and so on....:)

The warbands will be 15 man strong. And I will game with an easy version of "This very Ground"...house ruled and so..

I will try to get the typical stuff of the houses in the little warbands, but there will be no major characters from the books. Would feel odd to me like Göring being the chef of my Luftwaffenfeld-Division at Boltaction or Napoleon leading my Drums and Shako-french...;)
And in the first step vereryboby will be on foot.

Okay her are the first pics of the Lannisters.
The minis are a wild mix of every plastic box I could lay my hands on, with a few metal minis spinkled in.

(http://i.imgur.com/B5WDZgrl.jpg) (http://imgur.com/B5WDZgr)

And a kind of top view to make the force organisation more transparent:
The warband will be lead by a Ser.
There will be a Champion, a 5-6 man CC-troope, 3 missle troops, a 3 man support (here a few savages from the hilltribes) and 2 man non combat unit for taking mission objectives...


(http://i.imgur.com/tKFhWkTl.jpg) (http://imgur.com/tKFhWkT)

Perhaps I have to make each unit 1-2 minis bigger...have to make a playtest for that...:)

All painted in a day... o_o lol

Cheers,
Don

After a little sidestep in Frostgrave I am back in the GoT....:)

So here are the first reenforcemenst for the Lannisters.

Ah, the Boltons. Everybody's favourite bad guys. Love those shields. They look great.

I'll probably get lynched (or flayed) for saying it around here (lots of book purists about), but I think the TV version of the Bolton sigil looks much cooler than the book one.

Title: Re: Don's GoT
Post by: Captain Blood on September 05, 2017, 10:39:23 PM
Nice work. Do love the pink clad baddies.

I agree the HBO sigil is very striking - kind of Third Reich overtones I always feel. It's the addition of the black that makes it work of course.

Martin's original description of a red flayed man on a pink field was never going to look like anything other than a pinky-red mess. Not good heraldry, whichever way you look at it...  ::)
It's the author's weird notions of heraldry that remind you it's a fantasy, despite a lot of it being a plausible pseudo-history set in medieval times.
Apart from the dragons, white walkers etc, obvs...
Title: Re: Don's GoT
Post by: LordOdo on September 05, 2017, 11:56:52 PM

You are a painting machine, man!
I'd echo, the good Captain's comments. While his minis are undoubtedly works of art, I'd not diss your efforts one iota. The speed and standard you have achieved with your minis is something I aspire to.
I'd also echo everyone's comments about the HBO Bolton sigil. I'm revisiting my Northern Houses and I'd agree with Capt. B, that the book-version Bolton sigil seems less well realised and tame by comparison. My attempts have also met with little success. The whole upside-down flaying idea works well though, and seems to stem from Titian's 'Flaying of Marsyas'. I shall be using that in future, though probably not the X frame motif...
Title: Re: Don's GoT

By the old gods and the new, that picture really brings home the scale of your rapidly produced collection! What a glorious sight.

Not only is this wonderful eye candy, it's also proving a really effective shaming mechanism for my own slow (lack of) production!  :o lol

Impressive collection, and in such a short space of time, wow!

Dog's bollocks basically means really good :)

Apparently it derives from old packing terms, if you can believe what they say on QI, when normal packaging was classified as 'box standard' and the better quality version was known as 'box deluxe', which over time have become 'bog standard' and 'dog's bollocks'

Not buying that QI derivation for a second. A ham-fisted erroneous folk-etymology if I ever saw one. I thought they were better than that.

It is, in fact, a load of old bollocks.  :)

To make the handling of the minis a little easier, I started building a few sabbotbases. At least for the bigger units....:)

There are only so many good ideas in the world of wargaming, and they have mostly been done before...

But to be fair, it was a long tome ago...  ;)

So in my upcoming multiplayer I wanted to do something like a convoi thing.
Of course inspired by the last episodes....;)

So I needed a few wagons.

I graabbed some plasticcard and scrape away....;)

For the wheels I used some bases...:)

And the I led the plastic glue flow....;)

A few of the details I did with greenstuff.

..and while I was glueing away I just did a few plain minis.

Luckyly I already have a few animals to pull the wagon.

Very nice!!! I used to do this kind of technique a while ago, but apparently all the plasticard i'm buying recently is far too hard for that. I remember the older one as slightly more malleable. Do you have a link for yours?

Cheers

Sorry, I am afraid not.
I buy this stuff at a very old-school toy shop with no internet presentation. The plasticcard is not labeld in any way...just the price....sorry.

I feel your pain. I have much the same problem with my modelling projects. I source a good material, use it all up and look for more only to find it's an offcut of an unlabelled material I can't identify to replicate. I applaud your plasticard morphing...!

Aww, too bad!  Thank you anyways! I might just return to the shop where i bought it ages ago, hoping they still have some.

Okay, here are the new troops and the wagon....:)


I painted them in a ratherbrownish tone so that I can add them to any faction.

And the wagon with some paint...

But could just come up with a rudimentary strong cart...a box on wheels...:D
