Very nice work on these. Great to see the Perry knights in this context - and yes, the armour is very striking.

Re: Back to Fantasy ~ Some new July additions

I'm getting back into painting after a short hiatus where I delved, once again, into the realm of zombie apocalypse. I'm trying to get through the grey plastic pile whilst, at the same time, putting more figures on the table. They all came out looking decent enough and I'm planning another game of solo Dragon Rampant in the next few days.

There's more pics and descriptive stuff on my blog at: https://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2020/07/a-troll-champion-and-some-elves.html





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

I got a nice looking Reaper Jaberwock. This is the Bones version (the one that can't stand under its own weight). I had to do a bit of work to get it to stay upright but in the end it came out okay. You can read about my thoughts on my blog at:

"... decent enough"?  :o

These are, if I may use an obvious and overused word, fantastic. The Jabberwock is pretty amazing but that troll is a fabulous piece of work. The militant satyr and the Elven guard are pretty blinking cool too.

Re: Back to Fantasy ~ A Knight with Wings

I needed a commander/hero for my medieval troops to give them a fantasy feel. So I made this guy. The griffin is Reaper Bones and the knight is Perry. You can have a read of my blog for more details about him. Link here: http://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2020/07/wing-commander.html

I've named him Baron von Bach-Sachenkrach.

Here's a few more things that I've painted up during the past week or so to add to my various fantasy armies. I've also spent quite a bit of time putting together plastic figures in preparation for a painting Frenzy!!!!. Or something like that.

There's a couple more pics and a write up here on my  blog if your're interested: http://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2020/08/a-bit-more-painting.html

Re: Back to Fantasy ~ The Dead Are Coming
« Reply #131 on: August 13, 2020, 03:03:51 AM »
After playing a solo game of Saga, Age of Magic I decided to make a new army. I had a whole bunch of GW plastic ghosts sitting around, that I picked up on the cheap, and decided these would be a great starting point. I thought I could get these done fairly quickly and that I could get an entire warband done within a week (that's 8pts for Saga or 24 pts for Dragon Rampant). So here's my start.

If you're wondering just how cheap I got these GW figures then have a look at my blog and be prepared to be stunned (I was).

I've added a bit more things to my current desire to build an army of the dead. I'm finding these figures are very easy to paint. Just a couple of base colours, a couple of washes, some dry brushing and a bit of work on the bases. There's not really much to them but... They're coming out really nice with minimal effort.

More pics and more writing on my blog here: https://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2020/08/nine-for-mortal-men-doomed-to-die.html

Very effective looking - as you said, itís amazing what can be achieved with a couple of washes/dry brushing
