15mm Empire: We have an ogre - and we will use him!

I always thought I suck at sculpting... Maybe I have improved my skills or it's again 15mm scale that is way more forgiving mistakes. I desperately wanted an ogre for my Empire warband. After some research it became clear that there is none on the market and a conversion would be necessary. I realized that I picked up six of the excellent ogre miniatures from Alternative Armies. I sacrificed a Demonworld chap for the feather and looked through my 28mm bitz finding an old shield fitting size-wise. The rest had to be done with green stuff. I am more than pleased with the final result and will certainly do another one in the near future. An ogre rarely comes alone and I have to other poses left to convert.

15mm Empire Warband

After spending the past weeks to shrink my postapoc stuff to 15mm, I wanted to change for fantasy again. I am continuing to sell my 28mm stuff and redo everything in the perfect scale. I had a nice Warhammer Fantasy Empire warband I painted up in the Talabheim colour scheme. For the 15mm version I swapped the white for black. The colours do not fit any specific region of the Old World, but I like them better now. Using Essex and Demonworld miniatures, I spent a week to paint up 13 miniatures. I guess I needed more than two months to achieve the same in 28mm back in the day. I will only show five per post as usual starting with my Captain, some foot soldiers and my first archer. I will use them as imperial troops in skirmishes or as town guard when I'm roaming the Forgotten Realms. The buildings are all from Alternative Armies.

Dystopian Diaries - Part 10: Children of the Zone

Welcome to Dystopia. Every monday there will be a new entry showing my progress on all things postapoc.

These guys are the Squamata Auxiliaries of the Kaamados Dominion. They're from Ral Partha's Critical Mass line and make great Tech-Cultists or worshippers of Nurgle. I will use them as twisted explorers of the wasteland who venture deep into contaminated terrain. They have rare weapons and gear, but their bodies have been exposed too long to critical doses of radiation. The miniatures are great, but they're kind of smallish and maybe not to everybody's taste sizewise. 

The Covid-situation is relatively calm here in Germany and I'm allowed to work again. It's time to move on and get some rest from the all this PA stuff. I think I'll switch to Fantasy to have a change of pace.

Stay safe, stay healthy!

It's only three of them, but I couldn't resist to shoot some Space Hulk photos with my Deathwing Terminators. I placed them on my Do...
