Return of the Son of the Disciples of the...

Fistful Of Kung Fu!!!


Some WIP shots of my Wing Kong faction, purchased from a fellow LAFer who abandoned his project (much like I did, once!) Plus a scale shot of my beloved China Town minis. I'm really excited to get back into the game. Now to save my $$ and get some of those lovely Knights of Dice China Town buildings... The dream board is the attack on the Funeral of Lem Lee in the alley in Big Trouble in Little China, of course!
May the wings of Liberty never lose a feather!

Frostgrave Campaigns and a Contest

My first Frostgrave campaign just ended with the defeat of my Simians


at the hands of the evil Necromancer and his shoddy henchmen. The apes were driven from the  jungle city of their ancestors along with the tribe of primitive humans who had come to occupy it when the Necromancer's thugs opened a portal and allowed thousands of dead to flow through, overwhelming any resistance. Their ancient temples were defiled, and the stones used to build terrible temples to evil. Cloud Walker and his remaining troops fled into the deepest jungle to lick their wounds and plot revenge.
Now, Campaign 2! I'll be mustering a Norse warband, mostly old Citadel, to do battle with an enemy summoner. Really having a fun time with the game, as my gaming buddy and I have gotten really into the narrative side of things. He has done a ton of work, both in fluff and the spectacular scenery he builds for us to play on.

Now I have some painting to do! And just in time, a contest over at
http://jacksarge.blogspot.com.au/2017/03/competition-time-win-copy-of-painting.html

Maybe I can win, and get a few useful tips outta the book! JackSarge is a damn fine painter, so there is plenty to "borrow" right from his site. Wish me luck!

Right... That's 2017 sorted!



Sea Peoples for Achaean Lion /Chariots Rampant. This is the big project for 2017, along with the final minis for the Trojans and Achaeans. Trying to push the charming lads at Mana Press to get a standalone Tribal supplement for the Trojan War going, so I need some games and battle reports with proper lovely pictures to convince them!

This plus Lost World/Prehistoric/10,000 BC and the FIW, all of which I'm set for minis-wise (bar a few things, here and there) means it SHOULD be an inexpensive year for minis. PLENTY to do that is already in-house.

Fingers crossed!

The Depredations of the Sea Peoples



 A few scenes, using terrain made by a friend of mine, and this, the army I once intended to build, partially sold off, and am now re-constructing.

Raiders from the Sea


Well, finally, I'm back!

Working on the Troy project again, brought back to life by the commissioning of an MDF galley from Ironheart Artizans. They turned out GREAT! Couldn't be happier!




Also got my Sea People allies for the Trojans in Achaean Lion Rampant finally finished. Five of these fellows were painted by the talented Blue in Vt and these rest by my humble brush. Gorgeous old Foundry figs.



After this, finish my ALR forces for Trojans and Achaeans, prepare those boats, and then a proper full force of Sea People, courtesy of a fresh lot of Cutting Edge coming for Christmas. Can't wait!

Glad to be back and enjoying things again!

Border Reivers test

After a months-long slump, I finally got some minis painted, the first for my fledgling Border reivers project. Pictured are characters from Hoka Hey and Sgt Major. A bit of touch-up needed on the bases and the trees, but I was excited to have something to show. My last Blog post was in May??!

Hope you like them, as there are a ton more to come! Cheers!
