That kitbash works well. I had not really considered Reaper Bones terrain either but you did a great job with it.

I've done one of their circles as well, they paint up rather well and easily.

I've been thinking about getting a second one that would fit with some of the more dark ages style army that I've been working on rather than the deep woods version that my initial one was.

The one thing that mixes really well with it is their stone altar piece, I think it was, initially, intended to be the centerpiece of the circle but was made separate because it would work well as a cheap, generic fantasy terrain piece for the wilderness.

That is a nice piece indeed. I already have some stone altars, but one can always have another, right?

It's also extremely cheap and easy to paint. I've seen a few others beyond the one I have thanks to a couple being in the local stores stockpile for terrain along with a couple other people having them for D&D stuff and none of them seem to need any cleanup...

ha! I didn't know Reaper did terrain either. I've already bought Fogou huts because of this thread...now I'm buying stone circles!

is this the stone alter people are referring to?

Yeah that's the one. It slots into the center of the mystic circle

Recently received Westfalia's kickstarted Pride Knights set and one of them fit the look quite well for my current DnD character. A Perry longbow, some arrows and a dagger to make sure it's correctly armed.

Cracking paint jobs, really like the palette

The figure with the longbow looks like he has just shot an orc at 200 yds while somersaulting through the air, and isnít even going to look because he is THAT GOOD  ;)

That's certainly what I would like to be able to do :D

Decided to have another look at one of the projects in this thread, the Kingdom of the Black Duns for Oathmark. This is intended to be a mix of humans, orcs and goblins but I'm still waiting for Orcs to release from North Star. The army began with a mix of fantasy and dark age bits but then I built some units from purely Dark Age models. Looking back this created a split in appearance between the more high fantasy parts of the army and the more historical looking. I decided to re-focus on the more fantastical kitbashes.

I bashed up ten Human Linebreakers (heavy infantry with two-handed weapons) by kitbashing Frostgrave barbarians, Frostgrave knights, Perry 15th century weapons and Victrix saxon heads. Their leader is from Black Scorpion and fit right in with this aesthetic.


I then figured that this five-man cavalry unit from my Game of Thrones army is a better fit here; the men of the Black Duns wear a lot of Brigandine, while my Starks are really more about the partial plate. They will get a partial repaint and rebase to fit the colour scheme.


And then to round them out to ten I built these fellas. They will get cloaks and fur collars one I have painted the hard to reach areas.


With the change in aesthetic priority these guys are also back in the painting queue:


So yeah, sometimes one has to take stock and scrap things that don't work. Happy to move forward with this project with a stronger idea of what look I'm going for.

What do you think?

Nice models.

Those cavalry conversions look particularly good. Who makes those horses? The discarded helmets look like Fireforge Teutonic command sprue.

Horses and rider bodies are from Fireforge. The helmets are indeed Teutons and the arms are from Perry.
