Project log: Really Small Persians, part II

I’ve finally managed to get some more Persians off the painting table, which is a relief. Together with my previous batch, these wee lads will provide me with a decent-sized contingent for use in smaller battles against my Greeks. I still have a long way to go before I’ve got a “complete” Persian army, but… Continue reading Project log: Really Small Persians, part II

Project Log: Frostgrave Necromancer Warband

As per usual these days, I’ve been fairly busy lately. But weirdly enough the odd project has still managed to sneak off the painting table – most recently a Frostgrave Warband. Now I’ve only played this game once, but I had so much fun that I just had to build me a dedicated bunch of… Continue reading Project Log: Frostgrave Necromancer Warband

Project log: Really small Persians

As the domestic dust slowly settles after my second child’s arrival a couple of months ago,  I’m finally getting into old habits when it comes to painting and modelling. A relief, no doubt – especially since I’m way behind schedule on some of my major projects. The most major of these undertakings is undeniably the… Continue reading Project log: Really small Persians

Project log: Really small civilians

Since the latest recruit to my family ranks arrived, I’ve obviously been a bit occupied with non-hobby related things. But I’ve still managed to sneak in a bit of nerdiness here and there, in spite of an overall focus on combining full time work with diaper changing, sleepless nights and the general joy and exhaustion… Continue reading Project log: Really small civilians

Project log: 17th century Polish, part II

I thought I’d just post a quick update to show off a new addition to my Polish army: a unit of Pancerni from The Assault Group‘s wonderful Polish Renaissance range. These soldiers, mainly used to soften up enemy ranks before the Winged Hussars‘ deadly charges, were often termed “Cossacks”, even though in reality they were… Continue reading Project log: 17th century Polish, part II

Project log: Really small Greeks, part III

So I’ve finally finished my extra-tiny Greek forces… for now. With these latest additions, the ranks are sufficiently fleshed out to allow both for quite sizable Greeks vs Greeks battles during most of the Classical period, and for future major clashes with Persians or so-called Barbarians, for example. First off, I did some extra units of… Continue reading Project log: Really small Greeks, part III

Project log: Really small buildings

  I’ve been on the lookout for some nice 6mm buildings for my Greek project for some time now. There are several manufacturers to chose from, but in the end I bought three pieces from Total Battle Miniatures. These are actually not labeled as ancient, nor Greek – they’re part of TBM’s Spanish/Italian range. But since they’re… Continue reading Project log: Really small buildings
