Very cool indeed mate.

Must admit Iíve been put off of those multi-part spiders (they look just too fiddly for my limited attention span) but the halflings have bags of character.

Really liking the halflings, the sculpting on the hoods is great! Working with Green Stuff that thin is a nightmare usually!  lol

The Ansar heads fit really well on them too! Thanks for showing off the kitbashing!

Here we go, 20 Halfling Border Scouts completed. As above, bodies and most of the arms are from Wargames Atlantic. I have some Victrix slings mixed in there, and a few Frostgrave bits. Heads from Perry Ansar and Zulus, some Victrix greeks and even a WGA irishman.

I wanted these guys to look quite Ranger-esque, so very few helmets, and more hoods. Also some packs, pans, a lantern and other things that might be good when going ranging.



What do you think?

And yet more short minis built!

Kitbashed 20 Halfling Spearmen by using arms from Frostgrave Soldiers 2 and Fireforge Teutonic infatry kits. There's also a few random heads thrown in from other historical kits.


Then I cracked open a box of Dwarfs and decided to kitbash them too. This unit got arms from the Frostgrave Knight set:


And these guys got arms from Fireforge Northmen infantry.


That's 70 infantry and a couple of monsters assmbled/kitbashed in just over a week.

What do you think?

Excellent productivity, and most importantly, they look great.

Iíve no need for halflings or dwarves for that matter, but the more I see of your kitbashing makes me want to get some...must resist   :D

Thanks lads. I do really enjoy this feeling of inspired productivity. Let's see if it lasts through painting....

The kitbashes look great! Real seamless mixing of the kits!

(And really impressive rate of production too!)

great productivity! makes me wonder what I got done this last week...

while I generally do not like the look of the oathmark dwarfs, they look nice and varied in your approach. maybe if I look at those miniatures for a while longer, I eventually like the originals as well...

I feel one of the halflings is not working as well, because of the very characteristic facial expression( second row at the very left).. there I can see that it is a conversion. but all the rest are very nice and believable.

Aye, he's the only Fireforge head in the bunch. Stands out a little bit. Let's see if some paint can tie him in better.

No progress on the Halflings I'm afraid, as I've been mostly painting medievals (if you want to check that project, there's a link in my signature) but I've also made a little foray into buying 3D-printed models from Etsy shops. I got the following from a Polish 3d-printer, all very nice and clean prints that went together with very little prep.






The yeti will join my bestiary of Frostgrave and DnD monsters, while the runestones and fallen log should be nice in a variety of terrain setups.
