It's time for a new kind of madness

Of course... of course I couldn't resist. I purchased those sweet Forest Dragon armies to print their single figures in 15mm. But then I thought how well they would look on a group base, how fast I could built a Dragon Rampant army with them. 

I printed them out in 10mm ranks just like in Warmaster, but I realized they are a pain to paint this way. Also, they only look good in high numbers and for Dragon Rampant you only need 12 per unit. So I ended up in 8mm and based them as singles to make them look more like a warband instead of a huge army. 

I will built 12 man units on two bases of six, so I can take one away when the unit reaches half strength. This way, I can manage a big unit in one evening and a whole army in 10 days or so. Something to consider when you want EVERY army there is... because it's me and my problem. I want it all and I want it now. 

I'm a hopeless case. :D

Anyway, here is the first half of my zombie mob. And you know how it is with the undead... there will be more!

  1. They are cute but as a Warmaster player with a horde of Orcs I prefer to have them in massed ranks.
    PS. You need to get rid of that 3d printer my friend ;-)

  2. Very nice. You should abandon your family and live beside me. Then you can paint and make things for me.

  4. Adorable, tiny zombies (at least from the perspective of 28mm)! Still fantastic paint job, especially at this scale: we really like the idea of ​​different skin colors, which include blue and green; thus breaks the monotony that the zombie hordes often have. As for your insanity, it is the indispensable quality of a master of a rapidly multiplying zombie horde ... Will there be some character in your army, or some "special" piece, or just infantry?

  5. Have you tried to print some in 15mm? I do have them, but I don't know if they will be a bit "bobblehead" compared to other 15mms.
