    2.5D…. Rather than true 3D? I know they are counters as such but would be good to see if they could be used as wargaming pieces. They would be ideal for 3D printing.

    That is drifting into 3mm scale territory…

    Jigged the website around a bit and have uploaded my rough excel sheets that I use for unit templates and cheet sheets, they are messy AF as I CBA to format them for public use.

    But feel free to rob them if they are of use.

    Currently a very basic wall section.

    I will buy some more silicone and make a gate section, a tower and possibly some buttresses to add ad-hoc or not.

    Neat – will you add a ruined section at all?

    I have been pondering an undead army, cos A: cool, and B: quick to paint.

    I did some undead for Samantha’s wizard to summon using magyks and whilst quick, it would still mean painting a few hundred models for an army.

    Then I read about GW Contrast Paint: Skeleton Horde.
    You are meant to use wraith bone undercoat and then use the contrast paint.
    I don’t have wraith bone so went for bright ass white.

    So here are 2 images of the contrast skelly bone.

    The model in the middle had a drybrush of bone over the top, to help make it seem less flat.
    The other 2 are just plain old contrast paint.

    I prefer the look my old method gave me, but those are about 10 minutes a figure, where as these 3 figures took 15 minutes, which is enough of a time saving for the drop in appearance.

    Just checked my old ones, I actually prefer the new middle one!

    Double dang, could be Undead Army on the cards.

    You say that as though it’s a bad thing. There ALWAYS has to be an Undead Army.

    The middle one looks good. I’ve been trying a grey base coat with dark brown wash and then a white dry brush. I will see if I can upload a pic.

    Tally-Ho!

    I started on my 10mm giant.
    Normally I would pick a more Old World name, but I have decided to name this after the amazing person that gave me the model for free!

    So, here we have James with his first lick of paint.
    Looking forward to him falling over on Samantha’s Dark Elves and squishing them.

    People say James is a hoary old giant beholden to none, but the truth is, he has a soft heart – deep down, James is a giant peach.

    Walls are excellent, nice and solid. The giant is a great model too, great brushwork.

    As for the skeletons, I think I would spend the extra time anyway and go for the drybrush on top of the contrast paint. It just looks that much better.

    Thanks even with my crap photography skills you can make out some of the nice blending I managed to get on the skin.

    Started assembling some Kallistra siege gear:

    Going to keep them generic so they will work for both The Empire and the Dark Elves.
    Though there is a  bit of me that wants to theme them up!!!

    Decided the Empire needs a big ass siege gun.
    For this beast I am going to make a bigger base and add some fancy bits, here is a rough layout:

    Cannon balls, buckets, trough of water for the buckets and some barrels of gunpowder.
    I will also add a flag!!

    Well that’s a subtle gun to say the least!

    You have been busy Mike.

    So much cool stuff!

    Especially the castle walls, can’t wait to see them in a setup with your town.

    Cheers, I suspect that could be a while, especially with the weather going damp.
    I spray the models outside mostly so that is a pain, that and the colder wetter weather tends to sap my enthuisiasm.

    Fingers crossed though!!

    You given up on your 10mm for now?

    I always see the cold and damp weather as an excuse to stay in and paint miniatures. But I can understand how it can sap the enthusiasm as well.

    I’m taking a break from them as I work on the orcs & goblins. Saying that…
    Looking at your stuff is inspiring me to do a little more work on them, so I will probably flip between projects as and when I feel like it.

    So here is the starting model:

    And what I have now.

    Great work Mike!

    Especially the diorama base and the way the crew blend in so well with it, even though they are on separate bases.

    Have you named it?

    Thanks all.

    A name you say….   Hmmmmm off for a ponder

    Love the resulting ‘little’ diorama. Sure needs a proud name – how about Sigmars Hammer?

    There is a real boom-boom called Pumhart von Steyr by the way so the names do not need to make sense!

    …Gotta be in it to win it! 😀

    In it – that sticks out at both ends!

    Sounds fit for official records, but I’m sure the crew (and the ladies) may have a more colourful  moniker for it.

    33kg of gunpowder some of those guns used in a single shot….

    What a monster, the sound must be deafening.

    A great model! Loving all the details.
