Beastmen. Lots of Beastmen ...

Hopefully an antidote to the Wood Elves that my son & heir is painting.

What are my plans? Over the next few months, paint the following stuff that Iíve already bought:

2 units Araby Spearmen
2 units Araby Bowmen
4 units Bretonnian Peasants
3 Wizards for Vampire Counts

All of the above using various Pendraken codes. Then paint a Chaos Army using the Evil Men range. Must admit Iím struggling to get my painting mojo going on that one. So far Iíve only done the Harpies, errm, Eyrnies and made a start on the characters but canít really decide on the colour scheme for the army overall.

Once I get all that lot painted, Iíll have done just over 12000 points worth of figures since early January, adding various stuff to my existing Empire, Dwarf, O&G, Tomb Kings, Halfing, Dogs of War, Bretonnian and Araby armies. Included in the 12000 is a >3600 point Chaos dwarf army, using various Eureka, Kallistra/Pendraken, Polar Fox and Magister Militum figures.

The Hobgoblins (MM Goblin codes) from the Chaos Dwarves are also part of a Hobgoblin army Iím putting together, with an army list Iíve drafted. More infantry and wolf riders needed for that army.

Iím also part way through a Vampire Counts army, using Pendraken and Polar Fox stuff, just over 1850 points so far, all done since January. At some point Iíll get some zombies and cavalry from Kallistra and maybe some more Kallistra skeletons for that army.

Edit - Now I've seen Pendraken's new Warband Zombies, I think I'll be getting some of those instead of the Kallistra ones.

Beyond that? Probably some Polar Fox Trolls, to add to the O&G/Chaos/Hobgoblin armies. 2 units each of Magister Militum Dwarf Pikes and Crossbows to add to the DoW army - the crossbows could also double up as Rangers for the Dwarf army. Must get some more cavalry for the DoW as well, Iíve only got 5 mounted units so far.

Then Iíll move on to new armies, Iíve got rough plans for Kislev, High Elves and Norse Ė but I think that will be next year, not this!

Hmmmm...
The plan is to finish off summer and also to put my paintingstation back in order again... ;)

The local Warmastergroup is building new terrain for swedish open (you are all welcome!) and personally I plan to get more of my OnG's finished :)

We are also trying to start up a Mordheimcampaign so a Beastmen-warband needs creating and a lot of new terrain needs to be built.

Thats that I guess...

All about Warmaster at the mo:

3,800 points of Elves
3,750 points of Dwarfs
2,700 points of Empiire
4,200 points of Chaos
3,500 points of Orcs and Goblins
2,200 points of Undead

That's a lot to get through...but on the workbench at the moment:

x1 Dwarf Warriors
x1 Orc Warrior
x1 Black Orcs
x1 Ironside PF Orcs

Dwarfs are being held up at the moment by me designing and printing some (very small) transfers for their little shields!

The only things prepped for painting I have are Chaos and High Elves.  Resisting the urge to start prepping Lizardmen, Dark Elves, Empire etc.

Last year I barely painted anything.  This year I have painted more but it's still a fraction of what I intended.

Trying out colours for a Silver Helm unit now.

Several projects on the go!

Empire - I have c. 3000 points painted and I'm currently expanding with a detachment of maritime-themed troops, including several units of excellent Warmonger swordsmen and the Landship I shared on here.

Early Germans - a very slow-moving project which involves painting thousands of hairy blokes in trousers. A mix of Magister Militum and Steve Barber.

Albion - using the Germans from the above as warriors, but with the addition of British chariots (Old Glory), Eureka warhound, "ogres" (Copplestone 15mm Picts - much more primitive than the GW ogres and a better fit), a Copplestone 15mm giant and various bits from other manufacturers for characters.

Undead - another slow-moving project, using almost entirely GW miniatures. Bone Dragon and an undead elephant both converted from Microworld.

Hobgoblins - slow progress as every single miniature is converted to look like the old Citadel hobgoblins! I've used mongols and steppe nomads from Old Glory, Pendraken and TB Line, with wolves from Copplestone as mounts. I've sculpted my own general and temple dog and used 28mm hyenas from Obelisk miniatures as hobhounds. This will be a "counts as" army, using the Kislev list.

I have some half-arsed thoughts about a Dogs of War and a Chaos army, but I'm trying to keep the new projects under control.

Very nice terrain Marell- those rivets alone must have taken ages!

I've mostly been assembling Epic (as I have a local opponent for the next 5 months), and am still working on Vassal Warmaster. I have a huge amount of painting to do, but the lack of opponents reduces motivation there.

Flitting backwards and forwards between painting terrain (4 citadel woods) for 28mm skirmish/role playing games and doing khorne chariots and spawn for my warmaster chaos.

I need to finish these:



And these:



I have a Bolt Thrower and Reavers set for priming, and Eagles that need to be finished. I also started converting some Dragon Princes, and have dreams of doing the same for White Lions, Lion Chariots and a dragon.
