Thatís a great kitbash, with an excellent paint job. He looks very natural!

Super job. Your kitbashing and painting really makes the Fireforge components look good.

A lovely piece of work. Your painting style really matches your figures to their environment.

That Captain looks great.

They all look as if they have been on a long campaign.

Thanks! It was quite a mission reposing everything. Boiling water covered a multitude of sins.

Thanks a lot. Sadly I can't disagree with too many of your comments in the other review thread I posted. I really hope Fireforge improve going forwards, I'd love to support them more as a company.

Thanks a bunch! :)

Cheers mate. Yep, that's me, gritty and mud everywhere  lol

For those of you who were interested in the Fireforge Spanish Infantry review I posted recently, I've had the chance to assemble a few more of Maeldun's comrades:



The legs and torsos in this kit are great, and actually a few of the heads are really good too. I had to repose the arms with hot water, but I would note that they've improved a lot on the chain mail in this kit over previous Fireforge iterations.

I still don't know if I'd buy another 12 at £24, but were Fireforge to consider dropping the price it could have its uses.

The bodies do indeed look quite useful, well done. Are they took big to put Perry arms on do you think?

Cheers mate. I haven't actually tried yet - got some time free this weekend so I'll snap some pics.

Haven't managed to dig out the Perry bits to compare on Fireforge Spanish bodies. Will do that soon.

I HAVE managed to start a retouch (remaster?) of my Black Order mounted knights. With a few stylistic changes in the past 12 months, I felt like they're no longer as good as they could be. So here goes. Step one: rip off all the hand-sculpted furs and replace with texture plate fur. So far so good I think, the texture plate stuff flows much better and has more natural volume. I've undercoated a couple of the furs in this pic but most of them are still drying.

Great painting jobs mate, itís a pleasure to my eyes ! What bases are you using ? Usually it seems 25mm square 3mm ones but sometimes they appears more 20mm. Never tried the official oathmark ones ?

That's right, they're a mix as they are/were originally based for Vanguard and Kings of War. Infantry on 20mm, heavy infantry on 25mm, cav on 25x50mm.

Something a little different:

Ooh!  Those look like the TB Line knights (now from Pendraken) you have painted them very nicely indeed!

Iím not recognising the archers though, who are they by?

And what is driving this change of direction to 10mm (much as I like to see more 10mm)

ďDude, someone shrunk your knightsĒ. 

Seriously though, they look fantastic. Do you have a set of rules in mind to use them with? I expect youíll be able to find lots of figures that will fit your setting.

Looking forward to updates!

Great job on the little guys. 10mm is a great scale. I fell in love with it about15 years ago and have collected and painted up a few armies. It's a very adaptable scale as well. I've played both Warmaster and Dragon Rampant and expect they would work for KoW and Oathmark as well.

Those 10mm figures look great, I like your addition of the dead trees, very atmospheric.
