Continuing great stuff!

Thanks Rick.
Well, that should stop Rocket Morton from getting all the girls.

Thanks very much. Mu output has slowed down for the moment but I am still getting things painted.

Not much to add. Zombies have been taking up a lot of my time recently. But I did get few little bits finished.

Now that I've finished writing my zombie apocalypse rules it's time to get back to some painting and fantasy gaming (there's a limit to how much zombie brains a man can take). So I've kept busy on the paint table and managed to get a bunch of stuff done.

There's a couple more pics on my blog at: https://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2020/06/another-fantasy-interlude.html

I'm still getting the odd figure painted here and there. Not at the pace I was doing them at the start of the year but I'm plugging on.
Yesterday I finished off a few elf hero/character types.

This first one is a kit bash using a Conquest Games medieval archer body, his shield arm is from their Norman Knights box. He sword arm and head are from the Oathmark elf box. His cloak is from the Fireforge Teutonic Knight box. He came out okay for a bunch of odd spare bits and I think I'll make him his own company of spears so he can lead them into battle.


This one is an eM4 figure. An old Grenadier figure I think. This one is great. A lovely clean sculpt with lots of character. I really enjoyed painting him. I'm not very good at painting chequered patterns but I gave it a try for his shawl and it looks okay. I'm pretty happy with this figure and I really like his spear. I hope I can get more of the figures in this range in the future.

Nice work.   I really like the musician's tunic and trim pattern.

Wow! Great work! Especially the plaid and the tunic trims. Some great ideas there, excellent color choices and good kitbashing as well.

Re: Back to Fantasy ~ A bunch of knights of July

Thanks for the positive comments guys.

This week I decided to paint some knights. These a Perry HYW figures that I painted to give them a faerie look. I painted some Reaper wolves too. I wrote a bunch of stuff on my blog about my reasons for using the Perry figures. I did a couple of small terrain pieces too.

The Knights turned out really well.  Good choice on using Perry figures.   I like the green wash on the armor.   What did you use?

Thanks Syrinx0 - The base colour is Vallejo airbrush aluminium with a heavy wash of the basic GW green wash (I don't know the name of it). Then I made a pale metallic green and dry brushed it on all of the armour. BTW: I didn't use an airbrush for the aluminium. Just a regular brush.
