Thanks!  I'm a few sets from being "done" with Dwarven Forge, but it's definitely a nice system if you can avoid the pitfalls of their later stuff.

To replace the GW plastic Barbarian female I had on hand, I grabbed a new Hasslefree mini - it's a definitely "not" Red Sonja.

Cool. Does that count as heavy armour?

Been on a bit of a painting hiatus at the moment - working on rules, revisions...and another game.  Yes I took a break from designing my dungeon crawl, and chose to relax by...designing another fantasy skirmish game.  It's more or less a rapid fire replacement for Mordheim.

Managed to get in some games recently.  Good excuse to bust out some of my old Mordheim terrain:






Also managed to get in some games working on a generic fantasy battle system with a buddy who wants to run some conventions:

Thanks, that's all my buddy's stuff.  He's using the superb Fireforge stuff with Empire parts to make non-exorbitantly priced models for a variety of small fantasy games.

Amazing board and minis. Thanks for showing these off, they're an inspiration.

Well I've come full circle...I'm now stripping down and repainting some of the miniatures I started with on this dungeon crawl project.  My rule of thumb is essentially...if I overlook a miniature for several years because I'm "meh" on the paintjob and it never sees the table...it's being repainted or sold off.

I redid these guys recently, including one Reaper Bones Black monk figure which I only painted a few months ago but hated it so much I just tossed it in a bin and it never made it on the blog.

Great painting as usual mate. I really like the sculpt on the fellow with the rucksack. What company is he from?

He's a 'Mule Handler' from the Otherworld Miniatures 'Henchmen & Hirelings' pack.  I think they sell him separately, and in a couple different versions.

I decided to build a beastman/chaos themed warband for use with the new skirmish game.  I snagged the beastmen from the Beastgrave box and a spare metal one from eBay.  I have some ungors (satyrs) on the way as well.  Maybe add a few chaos warriors and call it a day.  These will also potentially find use in the future for dungeon crawling as well, hence the basing.
