    Check out some of the later 19th century wars in Latin America and Europe for uniform colours.  It’s something I have considered too and you can incorporate elite and ‘foreign’ legions in various coloured uniforms, an emerald green for Irish Catholics?

    If I’m reading your blog correctly, you used Contrast paints for these? 10mm 3D prints? Wow! I tried contrast paints for some 15mm figures, but they didn’t turn out too well. But your army looks great! Nicely done. Makes me all nostalgic for Warmaster again.

    These are 15mm figures but they were quite easy to paint.

    Thing is they look to be sculpted as a strip, if so you won’t be able to print them as singles?

    Hi Mike, they are easily separated in the ‘blender’ (i think is what it is called) and my guy in France who prints them has separated the Wraiths, Zombies etc without any issues.

    He said he can separate any of their products

    Cool. Nice colours! The wraith type things being separate does make more sense, not sure those more ethereal things need to be lined up rank and file. Good to know that he will print in other sizes too!

     

    I understand about the rank and file and if I had realised, my naivety, I would have asked for individual prints.  However I was not about to waste 72 prints so rank and file they are lol

    I’m sure the individualism of the other troop types will make up for it once the army hits the table

    I have the figures to exactly the same thing.  I have a reasonable sized ‘Imperial’ army already painted and have the metal to do the other major combatants.

     

    Will follow with excitement

    For 15mm I use a variety of 28mm and larger figures for trolls and giants.  You can really use what you wish.

    Thierry,

     

    When will you be looking at doing this again?  Do you have any of their Orcs left?

    Also have you considered the same thing Khurasan?  they have a fantastic range of 15mm Fantasy that I would love to get my hands on

     

    thanks

    Not a fan of those spiders, eeek. Though that Dwarf tank is pretty cool, did like my steam powered Dwarves back in the day. The whole shooting match looks very pretty.

    The spiders are awesome!

    I have proper Demonworld Dwarf ‘walkers’ they are very cool!

    Great work , I have loved the Horus Heresy since the beginning and used to have hundreds of Epic models, if not thousands but I sold them all off.

    I have been looking at Vanguard for some time and your posts are definitely pushing me towards the purchasing point….thank you

    Do you have a blog?

    Hi Micheal,

    James,

     

    Demonworld do a few as do Might Armies I think?

    Are you guys in Exmouth doing 15mm Fantasy mass battle?  If you are I’m in Plymouth and have very large fantasy armies!

    Slightly off topic, I’ve been reading the Twilight 2000 Wiki.  Are there any books/novels associated with these alternative histories?

    Mark,

    Check out Olicanlads blog.  He has done wonderful armies for the Punic Wars.  He has inspired me on my 15mm quest.  The Carthaginians and allies are done, just waiting for the Romans from the War and Empire Kickstarter and then they will have their foe!

    Hi Thomas As Mike says above, yes they would work with very little adaption required – how much is up to you really. I would quite happily play them as they are for Middle Earth battles. I am going to start work on a fantasy version of Sword & Spear soon. I will post more details on here when I start looking for playtesters. I’ll hopefully play a fantasy game (probably orcs & goblins vs medieval humans) with the rules as they are in a couple of weeks and post an AAR, to start getting the interest going for the fantasy version. Mark

     

    hi Mark,

    Thats good to hear, I have just bought your rules after seeing a game fought out at Plymouth Association of Wargamers.  Quite a few of the guys at the club have bought the rules as well

    i am a very keen 15mm fantasy mass battle player and would love to see your fantasy version!

    good luck and look forward to seeing the results!

    James,

    I have said it before and I will say it again your blog is an inspiration!!

    I have nearly completed my Carthaginian Army and am awaiting the War and Empires Kickstarter to be released so that I can build my Roman Army!  I will be following your lead on painting.

    Thanks

    I really like the idea of the British becoming involved in the American Civil War, may be the French joining in from Mexico.

    Would Crimea range figures be suitable?

    James,

    Your blog is and has been for such a long time a massive inspiration to me (and a massive source of envy!).  Because of your fantastic results I now have a very large Late Carthaginian Army (I’m waiting on my Romans from the West Wind Kickstarter) and a large Italian Wars Army but in 15mm.

    Seeing these pictures again make me want to do early crusades, damn you!!! I mean bless you and thanks lol! (although I am sure my wife would emphasize the first comment! ;-))

    Please keep up the inspirational work

    General,

    I have also looked at a Zulu/Dark Africa army for my fantasy gaming world, if you make them an ’empire’, you can use tribes from the north and indeed pigmees which did use bow and even blow pipes.

    Black Hat do a fantastic range of various tribes with headdress and shield variants, visually great!

    Henry, I know what you mean.  I am fortunate that at present I work overseas so get long lonely nights away from the family to paint.

    So 10mm LoA and 15mm Ancient Persians are my main focus on this trip.  The LoA is a relatively new project about 8 infantry regiments, 2 dismounted dragoon regiments and 3 cavalry regiments painted so far.  I have to do both sides as no one at my club is doing 10mm.

    The Persians are an old FOG project I am finishing off.

    PS love your magazine!

    I like the Nine Years War or War of the League of Augsburg as it was also known.  I like the mix of uniforms in any given army, the use of pike and the linear tactics but it’s mainly the uniforms!

    I am currently paining up armies for this war using the wonderful Pendraken 10mm LoA range, check them out they are great!

    I would love to do a Martian Empires setting.  I think the Martians from Black Hat are wonderful, I have not seen the Highland Studios ones yet.

    For the humans there are many options, any colonial figures really.  As for armour and the like All Quiet on the Martian Front will offer some ideas as does Spartan Games Dystopian Legions, I know they are 28mm but some of the vehicles would make very good large vehicles.

    Any other suggestions?

    I play in 15mm and like mass battles, hundreds of minis going at each other……A friend at my local club (Plymouth Association of Wargamers) has suggested Kings of War and I think it will work quite well.

    I have played Hail Caesar Fantasy which is a web based addition to the rule book and also Principles of War Ancients, again a Yahoo Group set of rules which has not been published yet so it’s free, for which I wrote my own fantasy additions.

    Both play very well, especially for someone like me who does like big battles.

    There are some pictures on my blog
