Those are excellent! I think you made the right choice of arms for Beleg, the initial ones looked good too, but were a little bit static. Iím looking forward to seeing what you create next!

I'm glad Turin and Beleg met with general approval.

Next, Woses.

These four were made primarily from Frostgrave Tribals with greenstuff additions. Some of the heads are Victrix Libyan skirmishers, with braids from some Victrix Vikings.

They are shorter and squatter than the Victrix Dark Age figures I have used for Rohirrim and Dunlendings, and about the same size as Oathmark goblins.

Wow, great work, those look very close to how I imagine the Woses when I read the books! Thatís excellent kit bashing and painting.

Thanks everyone for the comments! Much appreciated.

The Woses project left me with some Frostgrave Tribals spares. Among them were some heads. I decided to combine them with some Victrix Saxon helmets to see how they'd work for half-orcs. I used some random armoured bodies I had lying around - Fireforge Russians I think. They're not a patch on Victrix but they have a look that is in keeping with my image of Saruman's armoured shock-troops. I may end up grafting the heads onto other bodies if Victrix give me something more apposite. The long-awaited Normans, maybe.

Great work on the woses. They came out looking really nice.
I like your half-orcs too. They look like real ruffians.
Below is a link to my blog. It's the place where I write uninteresting things about little toy soldiers. I do this because I refuse to grow up and behave like an adult.

Excellent work!  Love the Woses but they all are great.  They're Angus McBride paintings in miniatures.

Thanks for posting the pictures here.  I saw some of these on FB briefly before they banned me.

I'm a big fan of Father Ted. In tribute to his 3 Ages of Elvis, here's my 3 Ages of Gandalf. Or something along those lines.

The brilliant Copplestone Castings wizard on the left, my favourite GW version of him in the middle, and another Copplestone sculpt on the right. Only the middle one is an official Gandalf, but the other two are so plainly him.
