Great looking force. Many thanks for the comparison shots as I am looking at getting a few skellies soon for a variety of gaming projects.

I would remove the arrow in the head as I think it is a little silly, but others may think otherwise. Your figures - your choice.

Thank you. I respect your opinion. He goes from ominous to comedy. And you have much experience in modelling as your lovely blog shows.

I finished sprucing up these orc chariots...

And an old Orc warboss on giant boar.

I think to make this look more plausible, I need to put some kind of green stuff lining around the wings to look like I haven’t just stuck them on to the side of armour. No idea how to do that…

Brainstormed a kind of a late Medieval Empire Sigmarite crusader list for Age of Magic, the Order Militant, as I have so many minis already. I’m thinking 6 witch hunters from the White Knight sculpts I picked up a few years ago (lovely they were - somewhere in garage - hearthguard), 3 units of warrior monks (flagellants), a couple of warrior priests, some nasty looking rabble rouser with a torch and pistol from from I think Mordheim as leader with once I get them a gruff hound on his base, maybe 12 Fireforge folk rabble if I get them (people’s crusade) but I needed some missiles capability...so I spent ages trying to pull together 12 archers from a decade old set of bits scattered everywhere from what must have been an Empire set of plastic archers and state troops. I wonder if these are unpaintable as the state troop details are not very distinct. But was a fun puzzle to pull together.

I played with turfing these old Games Workshop goblin wolf riders. My paint job was basic, I never seemed to mind mould lines and they were too glossily glazed. Then I saw these Spellcrow heads and substituted them and green stuffed around the goofy heads. But are the wolves still too goofy? I think a reasonable graded pelt paintjob from vermin brown at the bottom mixed with grey and black to pure black at the top may make them acceptable? We’ll see. Will be ages till they get repainted and new flock. These had a great life in WFB 7th edition scooting between the battle lines, taking pot shots that occasionally took out something amazing like a high elf dragon knight but always managed to compel anything with frenzy to chase them into the path of my warboss on chariot...Hope two units of them in Age of Magic will be as much fun?

Slow progress. Wolves panning out better than expected. Mirroring pics I found on the web.

I’ll look to the record covers for some painting inspiration when I get there. Anyway. Finished sprucing up 12 of these Black Orcs for either Saga AoM or Dragon Rampant.
