Excellent work on the converting and colouring in Corso  :-bd  :-bd

Quote from: Corso on 20 January 2024, 10:00:25 AMAnd after a lte night of modelling here she is

Reminds me of when I used to start doing stuff - converting models - when I'd gone to bed, and it'd be just gone midnight. Having your painting table in your bedroom, sometimes isn't conducive to getting a good night's rest - another reason why I'm now moving stuff into our spare room.

Won't be the first time I've sculpted using blu-tak and used superglue over the top of it as a hardener - though, from memory, I've only ever used greenstuff on 10mm stuff.

Don't bother they are fine.  I have a couple of axes, one of which was my grandfather's, came to me via my father, so it must be over 100 years old, and their heads are not the same colour.

Thanks

The project is really coming together, the Saxon Archers have arrived so it's just the last bits of terrain to sort

A river with crossings, 3-4 more huts, a church and some walls to go

Then it's on to beasts and monsters :D

Needed some otherworldly warriors so made some from some old MM ghosts as I wanted them more in the style of the dead men of dunharrow

Corso, your figures and terrain look excellent.

I've mainly been on a terrain kick as I need to star working out what to use for the mythical beasts

Corner River section, more useful than simply spliting the board in half and easier to fit in the box



Another dwelling and a well



Start of a defensive wall, decided to make it in sections since it's more versatile and easier to store

Most of those are readily available from Pendraken.
Headeosmwn are good.
There is also an interesting chaos warrior type.

Headeosmw?

For the dogs head warriors I'm probably going for a mix of the lancer and eureka ones

Most of the rest will be Pendraken
