You've done a great job with the centaur bases gibby. Like your way of painting very much.

Thanks so much! I've only been painting just over a year now, so I'm still learning a lot. Studying lots of the pros on this site... but I'm having a lot of fun with it and I think that's all that really matters.

I've started working on a new war board with modular tiles by secret weapon miniatures... I love the detail in these... I've gotten them primed, basecoated, and one of them with the first layer of flocking to establish a concept for them all... 95% of my armies are based with one of these 2 colors, so they should all look at home on these boards...

I like those too. I have the urban tiles and they look good. I've been after half a dozen of the landscaped tiles to integrate into the urban tiles to represent parks, etc but finding them for reasonable prices in the UK is not easy.

i've been waiting for individuals to list them on ebay... and snagging them after some haggling well below list. I have a set of the wasteland tiles as well for use with some of my future wars and gaslands games... looking to get a set of the damaged streets for future war stuff too....

If you ever see any of the grass tiles in your search and don't need them yourself feel free to send me a pm!  :D

Awesome board with excellent minis. Really astonishing how good the Rackham stuff still looks today!

Ok, I've got 4 of the boards finished... so naturally I had to test them out with a small skirmish of griffins and some dwarfs fighting the dirz...  12 more to go!

Long hiatus from anything in fantasy world... been working on a future war project and a weird ww2 project... glad to be back in fantasy land though.... continuing with my Kelt Sessairs army is Orhain the Erudite.

I've had these Fireforge guys assembled and staring at me on my bench for almost a year... so I decided to throw a quick paint job on them... I'll use them for any number of games... glad to have them not shaming me anymore...

 Nice figures and well painted.

 I really liked the Rackham range.It was a real killer for the company when they went to plastics though.AT-43 would have been great if the figures came on sprues so goes for the Confrontation figures.They should have kept the metal figures though.I still have loads of them sitting in boxes all over the place.

 Picked up some of the Secret Weapon terrain tiles but did not get the connectors for them :(.

Finished up a few Perry sculpts that have been primed on the bench for for too long as well... will use them as fancy heavy knights for dragon/lion rampant and other skirmishes...
