ECW Challenge

Last night after the SEEMS AGM Alan confirmed that he is aiming to paint up a few ECW figures.

I have nearly agreed to aim to get 50 or so done by December with the intention of a game and as Alan is aiming for Royalist it leaves me the Parliamentarians.

My Parliamentarians will be red coats based on the NMA or possibly orange coats for the foot.

My initial target (in line with the lion rampant rules) will be:-

1st Unit Pike and command         12 figs
1st  Units Shot                              12 figs
2nd Units Shot                             12 figs
1st Unit Cavalry                             6 figs
2nd Units Cavalry                          6 figs

So 48 Figures target in 8 months – 6 figures/month. Should be achievable even if I get distracted.

And as extra
1st  Units skirmishers/dismounted dragoons        12 figs
1st Unit Mounted dragoons                                    6 figs
2nd Units Mounted dragoon                                   6 figs

Figures to be based on 2p washers.

Horse on 25mm x 50mm bases.

This weekend I will aim to base and undercoat and will aim to update the blog monthly as to my progress.

New set of Mordheim Buildings

Last month I finished off my second set of GW Mordheim buildings. Both sets now complete, just need to get around to playing some games.

Dragon - Part Two

Very limited progress this month.

I have cleaned up the base dragon but have not yet started pinning. In respect to the base I added some green stuff to give the impression the treasure was piled up on a dungeon floor.

A corpse of Vampires

Back before it was trendy I loved Vampires, the scary, evil serial killer types. Not your more modern shiny, vegetarian reformed serial killer types who have human girlfriends and deny their true nature. Think Salam's Lot, Dracula, Anno Dracula, 30 Days of Nights, Let the right one in, I am legend (which I must re-read), Martin the vampire, Ultraviolet, Near Dark, Byzantium, and perhaps the early Anne Rice stuff.

So over the years I seemed to have amassed and painted a few starting back with the original citadel FF58 - Vampire through to more modern such as Otherworld Miniatures more recent UD10 - Vampire.

I still have a few unpainted (in fact some still blister packed) but what follows is a gallery of the ones done to date.
