The last LoA addition for a while, running out of complete units to paint....But these are the French cavalry regiment Orlenes. Quite standard for French cavalry of the period, light grey, reed trim....still nice though.
Pendraken please, please continue the range.....I love these armies!
These are older models, ones that i painted quite a few years ago but have never been under the lens. The form part, of probably, my favorite fantasy army Chaos.
First up are the Dragon Ogres, two units, move as cavalry but can fight as infantry a very strong component. The figures are GW Warmaster.
Chaos Familiars, no special ability but transformed followers of the chaos powers, but the variety does look good!
The figures are older GW Familiars.
Plague Bearers, these troops are capable of ranged attack using a poisoned dart/spray with they spit out of their mouth. Meeting these in close combat can also be bad for your health as any bite is sure to get infected!
GW figures again, I do love getting these cheap and re-purposing them!
And finally, War Hounds. Not strictly kept for the Chaos armies and not that effective on the field but can harass very well.
I have an existing project of a Late Achamenid Persian army for FOG A. Most of it has been done but I still have a plastic tub full of untouched lead.....so I have sorted out the pile into battle-groups and have begun the reinforcement process.
First up were 6 elements of cavalry which will be added to 6 existing elements to form 3 new battle-groups.
These are the fantastic Xyston Miniatures, some of the best 15mm sculpts out there, even if they are on the larger end of the scale.
For this project I had to go back to my old method of painting, which I have not used for a couple of year. Black undercoat and then dry bushing. I am very happy with the results.
I have been off the blog for a while but I am back.....I have however been painting and started yet another new project 10mm League of Augsburg armies both Alliance and French. I am using the fantastic Pendraken figures and basing them for FOGR, but they will be usable with other rule sets.
Here some examples of the infantry regiments.....the painting is complete but I need to give them a spray coat of matt vanish to dull the overall effect.
1. Dutch Gard de Voet, Alliance
2. Garde Suisse, in French service
3. Regt Greeber, the German regiment of that name, in French service.
As I am doing both sides I alternate between the two. The variety of uniforms is great and they figures are a joy to paint. So far I have 4 foot and 2 horse for each side plus 2 dismounted dragoon regiments for the French.
I am aim for about a dozen foot and nine mounted regiments for each army. So a long way to go!
