My work into Rangers of the Shadow Deep continues.


Two old GW Brettonia archers that will work as my Archer companions. So far I am painting them all up in the green colours of Alladore. So far I am trying to avoid buying new miniatures, atleast til I get paid at the end of the month and the Brettonia line fits best with the more early-ish mediveal fantasy aesthetic that I am trying to go with.



My ranger in the flesh. He is a A Song of Ice and Fire miniature from the Crannogman Trackers line. They really make for excellent rangers in the classic aesthetic ala Dunedain/Rangers of the North. He is a quick and cunning fellow so I have gone with abilities based around speed and deception, we'll see how well that goes for me once I venture into the Shadow Deep for real.

Those are looking great. I'm always amazed at how well the old Bretonnian archers hold up.

I may have to get myself some of those Crannogmen.

My group of companions for Rangers of the Shadow Deep continues to grow. Also got my first box of Oathmark/Frostgrave miniatures to play with.

A little conversion I threw together in a fit of inspiration after having read the recently released 28 magazine which I reccomend to everyone and can be found at https://28-mag.com/.



Some markers/tokens made to be used with Rangers of the Shadow Deep and potentially other things in the future.

Some great figures and markers you have there - great work!

As I didn't get any of the Warhammer Bretonnian stuff from that era I don't know how big they are. Could you tell me how tall the miniatures are in mm, and/or do some comparison shots with the Radagast mini (as I have one of those) that is in the background please? I like the look of that Crannogman "ranger" and would dearly like to fit him into my collection but not if he is too big - most of my collection are old school/pre-slotta Citadel and GW Lord of the Rings, so tend towards 25mm.

A very late reply, perhaps this will still be of use to you.





Didn't paint much for a good while again, but put paint on this fellow over the past few days. Out of pratice but turned out alright.

Another miniature for my latest return to trying to paint daily. Struggled a bit with this one for awhile.

Nice work and thank you for sharing. I like the guy with the forked beard in particular.

Thanks! And yeah I was pretty happy with him too, it's a good head. Managed to trade for it from a friend, is some old Ulric Knights head from the Empire starter box.

Looking at painting up some Chaos Warriors to try out Dragon Rampant with a friend. Decided to try and go for a brighter colour scheme and ended up with this as my test miniature.

Finished up what will be my Elite Footmen unit for Dragon Rampant, can't say I felt great about how they ended up looking but all together with the contrast they are striking enough from a distance. Bright colours really are more difficult to handle.


Now just have to finish up some Ungor Archers and the big evil villian.

Been working on some Victrix Vikings to use for various purposes, the plan is eventually to make a 9th Age Åsklanders army of it but painting so many miniatures is always aways away. Been looking at Saga however where they should function just fine, so began with putting together 16 unarmoured men with shields. As far as I've gathered they should do fine as two squads of Warriors in Saga.


Didn't paint all that much for a good while, it's always a treat to get going at it again even if I am not spending as much time as I perhaps ought to due to the numbers of them I'll need to have. Entertaining some fantastical notions of going over them again sometime in the future. The shields are currently blank as I am considering trying those lovely shield decals Victrix also sells, even if they're all out of stock currently.

My adventures in cork construction continues. I put this cairn golem together a few weeks ago but didn't end up wholly pleased with the silhouette and pose. It was put to the side as such things often are, but after having made a quick and smaller one in an evening I decided to paint it up. Are few things as despiriting as having a bunch of unfinished things lying around looking messy.

In the end I am happy enough with it.


As mentioned above I've also continued my work on the vikings. The 9th Age goal is still very distant as those armies would need me to paint up about a hundred vikings, but I have a full 6 point Saga army now and have played two games. It's a fun one.

My mighty viking warlord.


Three trolls, I am always looking for creatures of a more scandinavian folklore aesthetic and these Bronze Age Miniatures trolls suited that very well. If you know of any companies that make good creatures looking from that part of the world do let me know.


Finally a few pictures from the first two games against the Saxon foe.
