Black Powder: Portuguese Cacadores

 My second Cacadores Battalion for the army, the illustrious 6th!

I painted these in one day haha, the Cacadore uniform is so much easier and quicker to do than the regular line troops! Only a Brigade Commander and my General to go now whoop!

Black Powder: American Civil War Epic Battles Preview

 Happy Christmas peeps, hope you are all as stuffed as me haha! I got some free time on boxing day and today to get this sprue of Warlord Games new epic battles American Civil War models painted up to see what its all about:


Infantry Regiment

Cannon and Officer

The sprue came free with this months Wargames Illustrated, a preview ahead of the full release in late January I believe.

I painted mine up as Confederates but its the same sprue for both them and Unionists so if i see another copy about in shops I may get one to paint up as the Yankees! The sprue is crammed full of models, 106 to be precise... the box game will have 24 of them!!! Reminds me a great deal of the old Epic Space Marine game with its mountain of identical marine/rhino/land raider sprues.

The models are nice to paint, sufficiently detailed for the job and being plastic very lightweight for ease of transport for a massive army.

Age of Sigmar: Hellstriders of Slaanesh

Following on from the Lord of Pain I did a couple of weeks ago I have decided that the new Slaanesh mortal forces (Sybarites) will be my next AoS army.

Here's the first unit ready to go in 10 Hellstriders:

I was never a fan of how these have been painted in all the official art and schemes, but when GW released the preview of the Sybarite models from the warcry book they showed a photo of these painted up more like knights and that struck a cord. 

Its pretty much how i did the Lord of Pain but simplified the clothing as there is even less on these than him haha.

Lord of the Rings: Lords of Umbar

 I picked these up almost a year ago i think, full of intentions to start a Corsairs of Umbar force, but like many plans it failed to materialize hehe:

Dalamyr, The Feetmaster


Hasharin Assassin

These three heroes will give me a great start to this force in the new year with a box or two of warriors and a couple of packs of the arbalester's i should be done quite quickly.

Age of Sigmar: Jakob Bugmanson the Master Brewer!

 Another random, this time its the special christmas model haha

Again another cracking model but having painted up one Kharadon now i dont have the wish to paint an entire force of them.

Age of Sigmar: Lord of Pain

Continuing with painting a few random models, here is a Lord of Pain from the upcoming Sybarites of Slaanesh, the new range of mortals for the Slaanesh factions in Age of Sigmar:

As soon as this model was previewed i knew i had to get one, i think its fantastic! I had a scheme in mind that i wanted to try out to see if it were viable for a whole army or not... and i think it is, the secret is basecoats, a decent coverage of carroburg crimson wash then a terminatus stone drybrush, taking about 45mins not with drying time.

Maybe a force of these then next haha

Black Powder: 18th Foot Portuguese Line Battalion

 Two weeks to paint the 24 minis in this unit... fml :-(

Closing in on the end of this project, just one more infantry battalion and a couple of commander models go go to finish my Portuguese army to 500pts!

Its been a hard but enjoyable process, the army looks great on the shelf above my painting desk, i cant wait to actually get playing with them again...

Black Powder: More Portuguese Cavalry

 A second squadron of Portuguese Cavalry finished off today:

Exactly the same as my first squadron, i converted a box of French Cheval with Portuguese line infantry heads... not 100% historically accurate but they will do fine for me.

Now to start my fifth and final Line Battalion!

Age of Sigmar: Moar Blight Kings!

 For ages I've had 20 Blight kings as a 10 and two 5s... now I can finally field three 10s for glory hehe:

Thirty of these fat boys waddling across the board will be epic! I've used a few Blood Bowl Bloaters this time for a bit of variety and they were significantly cheaper than another 5 kings haha.

Warmaster: Black Gate Miniatures Kickstarter minis finished

Black Powder: Portuguese Cavalry and Brigade Commander

 Hello! Back from a quick break and some hardcore working shifts with these additions for my Napoleonic Portuguese:

The first cavalry regiment and the cavalry Brigade Commander are done. The Portuguese were not known for their and port cav is amongst the worst in the cav... poor, but enough to tackle enemy cavalry units from stopping my more elite infantry battalions from moving forwards!

Marvel Crisis Protocol: Cabal Starter force

These complete my core box for MCP, the Cabal members:

Red Skull (Leader)

Baron Zemo - Painted as Cobra Commander crossover hehe

Doctor Octopus



I much prefer the models for these over the Avengers guys and i think it shows in the painting. We had a great day of gaming last Sunday to make up for an AoS tournament being cancelled and i've ordered a few more models that will hopefully be here soon!

Marvel Crisis Protocol: "Dark" Avengers Assemble!

Victoria Hand (Black Widow)

"Venom" (Spiderman)

Dark Ms Marvel / Moonstone (Captain Marvel)

Iron Patriot / Norman Osborne (Iron Man)

Red Guardian (Captain America)

These were pretty fun to do something different with, will be starting my five Cabal models soon too.

Age of Sigmar: Thricefold Befoulment

 The ground shakes as the fat lads trio arrive on the scene haha, finished my 3rd GUO today:

This one will see the most play i reckon as the Bell and Bileblade are certainly the most useful combination of weapons.

And now that i have all three painted i can put the Thricefold Befoulment on the table on Monday against some bone reapers yeah boi:

Thats 960pts of blubber bowling down the battlefield!!!!

Age of Sigmar: All hail the Rainfather!

Sold off some stuff over the weekend and ordered a couple of the Great Unclean One boxes to let me run a Thricefold hehe. As soon as they arrived yesterday morning i got cracking on the first one and now have a Rotigus Rainfather waddling along in my ranks:

He's the special character GUO, the last one will be built as a support model with the Doomsday Bell and Bile Blade which are important to get the army moving and some spells cast!

I also finished off the last pair of Pusgoyle Blightlords that have sat languishing at the bottom of the pile since day one purchase:

Amazing models, i just wish they were better on the table!
