Lone wolves

A group of hoary old gamers, modellers and painters. We've been meeting and playing once a week since the late 1990's and this is what we get up to.

Unit Fillers

Back so soon!

With end of Lizardmen painting getting closer, these unit fillers were finished a lot quicker than I anticipated.

These three fillers have been the only thing that have been keeping me from fielding a fully painted army during a Wednesday night of Warhammer.

Well they're done now, and work has begun on the Hero/Lord on Carnosaur

Cold Ones

After a month of being between jobs, and managing to paint a colossal amount of figures, I am now back to the more traditional fun of grabbing 30 minutes here or there during a weekday evening, and fitting in some hobby between chores on the weekend.

At the moment I am 'enjoying' the enviable position of not having a great deal of my collection left to paint; but this does mean that I am returning to paint some models I have had for a while, of which quite a few have been left because they were not high on my list of favourite models to do.

So here are the latest models to be completed, 16 Lizardmen Cold One Riders; including a Hero.

I cant say I enjoyed painting them, and they aren't some of my best work, but they'll do and at least they are out of the way.

Next on the table are three unit fillers for my Lizardmen army, and then a Hero/Lord on a Carnosaur.

Keeper of Secrets

As the saying goes, 'Paint daemons while the sun shines'

So here is the last unpainted Daemon I have, a Keeper of Secrets.

Fiends of Slaanesh

Being between jobs means I have more time to paint than ever, and so here are some more finished models, this time some Fiends of Slaanesh.

These have been converted from Seekers of Slaanesh; the saddles removed, Daemonnette claws added and then a liberal sprinkling of Green Stuff fur.

Next on the paint station is a Keeper of Secrets.

The last of Dave's Yanks

Here are the last of the Flames of War Americans I have been doing for Dave.

A handful of Priests, a Sherman, couple of jeeps and all the bases of infantry I had left to do.

Chain of Command Spa Campaign - Turn 1


 
 
We have started a Chain of Command campaign using a map covering the Belgium town of Spa.  This is a fictitious setup to include all players and their respective platoons.  This is the outcome of turn one.  The basic setup is the failed Ardennes offensive.

Evening All

Between painting things for Dave, I have also been cracking on with some of the models I bought at Salute this year; the last of which are my 'In Her Majesties Name' Scotland Yard miniatures.

I bought two boxes of these back in the spring alongside another set of models on a crime fighting theme, the 'Cops' for A Fistful of Kung Fu.

Because of the duplicate models, I added some additional facial hair to some of them, some of which came out better than others.

Firstly we have the Bobbies on the beat



Then Special Branch


And finally, The Good Doctor, The Consulting Detective, Chief Inspector & Sergeant

More Yanks for Dave

More Americans off the production line, this time with pictures taken in the sunshine.

Only a dozen or so bases/tanks/infantry left to do.
