    Funnily, I was immediately hit by WFB 6th ed connotations, because the GW studio Empire army (which featured constantly in White Dwarf) during that edition was also painted as Talabheimers.

    Not that that’s of any consequence. And I must say, very nice painting of such small-scale figures.

    Cheers dude.

    I painted those before I found the Empire colour schemes, a happy accident it seems.

    I am still not 100% sure I will stick to colour schemes, but you never know.
    See what takes my fancy at the time..

    GW should have embraces 10mm. But their heroic scale creep probably put it closer to 15mm and then 20mm, then 25mm then 28mm…

    What’s with the red and white stripes on the tray? I like the tray, I thought you bought them until I went back and read the post.

    Excelent miniatures looks really good.

    Thanks.
    So all the trays as noted felt a bit chunky so I made one to be less obvious when in use.
    But then when thinking about what colours I decided on black, as the actual little bases are black and this is obvious on the hero models as they have no tray.
    So keep them black to match.
    But then that seemed a bit stark, that big black front.
    So what to do…

    I had a thought, the front of the trays can match the uniform of the troops.
    Makes sense, I have after all bought dice to match the units colours, why not go all colour coded!!

    Almost finished my archers from Stirland and then onto a unit of spears again from Talabecland.

    Here is where most of my army will be drawing its troops from:

    I was thinking of making myself a small church/temple to Sigmar as an objective.

    Anyone any idea what they look like?

    #146363

    Get a 28mm Sigmar-looking figure — not very detailed, mind — mount it on a plinth and paint it like a statue.

    We get slapped around, but we have a good time!

    #146366

    Looks kind of like a mix of high German medieval and Byzantine architecture, but I’m sure rural shrines are much less elaborate.

    The base size looks spot on and the tufts looks a realistic size.

    Do you have a link to the seller of those trees?   My searching has only turned up very basic ones so far…

    Most kind.  Once the head stops pounding  (withdrawal symptoms – nurse said ‘it may hurt for a while’) I’ll follow them up.

    Off back to bed (only done 20 out of the last 24 in there) I think.

    I have been putting the 10mm WFB content onto my old Angel Barracks site.
    It will be caught up with here soon and may even contain some new content, go have a butchers if you want my ramblings without your ramblings!

    Test print of my first unit card, once I am 100% sure I am happy I will print them onto stickers and put them on plasticard sheets so they are super durable.

    Someone on FB had some ideas, down to these 2 designs.
    I think the left one is nicer?

    Yup, think this is the design template.

    Very nice template Michael. All of this brings back some fond, and not so fond, memories of WH6th edition. The former playing with people who enjoyed the background etc, the latter with competitive players. Shame as those tournament players put me off the game for life, despite it having a superb background to it.

    I had a local printer do me two A4 double sided, colour QRS on 160gsm paper and matte laminate last week (email so handy).  Cost me £6 in total and very very happy with the result and as the laminate covers all the sheet edges they should be good for the odd coffee or tea spill.

    I used to be about winning at all costs back in the day.

    Not so much now.

    One day maybe I can lure you to the ‘new’ house. It has been ages and I hear you like a bit of 10mm…

    Cheers.

    Painted another unit, started on some buildings and half through doing my forest piece.
    Just started filing the emblems off the cavalry shields.
    I am going to say the dragon is in fact a griffin and so they are my Ostermark troops which is my heavy spear and regular infantry units.

    However I did not want my cavalry to be from Ostermark so the dragons are gone..

    Oh and I chopped off most the grass that attaches the hooves to the ground, rather use tufts for tufts and rather have them not touching the ground at all if they are mid gallop.

    On the workbench at the moment.

    Staring a whole new system/scale from scratch is a tedious process, but I am getting there.

    Just glad it is 10mm not 25/28mm…

    First wooded area done.

    Back in the day I did the old trees on bases and marked the forest perimeter with lichen.
    Now I was tempted to still do that but figured I could up my game just a bit…

    That’s how I do my woods Michael. they look good and make game play much easier. Keep up the good work.

    I have been trying to find some flagellants in 10mm, not managed to source any so have commissioned some to be sculpted for me…

    Yikes.

    Duuuuude… that’s getting stuck pretty deep in.  If you’re having them sculpted you’ll probably want to sell them as well, just to – you know – recoup the cost… {whistles innocently}

    You should have tried converting first, its part of the hobby 😀

    I may put them up for sale.
    I will see how they look when they arrive.
    If I think they are good enough for release I will get a production mould made of them, otherwise I will get them slipped into a master and just have a few spins to make my unit of them.

    As for converting, I am not too keen on anything that fiddly in those numbers.
    A few maybe, but not twenty or more, it would be quicker to have them made than to find the best closest figures and then order them and convert them.
    Plus you never know, as DSG says, they may make me a few squid.
