Naked Picts, finished mostly, maybe?

Well I've finished the Naked Picts, mostly, just need to decide exactly what I'm dong with the bases. 
I might also put some red tattoos/War paint on them as well. I'm still undecided about this, but they will do for now anyway.

Picts are done!

I finished off the Picts (barring completing the bases) just haven't managed to take a picture yet 😕
Hopefully will get a picture over the weekend & a picture of the start of the Warlord.

Well I've finally got the warlord finished.

I've just based him on a piece of bark & added a few bits of fine slate around the edges & a couple of grass tufts. 
Here's the rear view. I kept the shield design simple, as I thought that the tartan was busy enough.
Hope you all like it.

Warlord update

Got a chance to do a bit more this morning. 
I've painted the leather work & iron metalwork, 
along with a basecoat for the woodwork on the shield & the the tooth necklace. 

Gripping Beast Warlord

I've started paint the Saga Grand Melee free Warlord miniature from gripping beast & I thought that I would share a WIP

He's a great little figure of a portly Scot/Pict not really sure what he's supposed to be, but I do like him. 
Obviously I didn't get to paint the jeep. I got some green on it and got fed up 🙄

ETO SAS Jeep for Bolt Action

I've just been converting a SAS Dessert jeep to a European Theatre SAS Jeep, I don't know the manufacturer of the original Jeep miniature, but the crew are Warlord Games SAS crew. 
I made the fuel tanks from some plastic box section & plastic strip, the extra rear armour plate is plasticard as well
Hopefully I will try to get it painted over Christmas

West wind Empire of the Dead figures

Well I've finally managed to finish these EOTD figure for Binman. 
They've taken way too long to do (Sorry Adam)
Here's the first lot with my favourite figure of the bunch, Captain Nemo.
I've just noticed that I haven't actually finished one of the figures đŸ˜±đŸ˜±
The next lot has two of the Nadezhda Durova miniature, these two must be my least favourite of the bunch, they are terrible castings  & I don't like the modernised version of Victorian clothing (they wouldn't have bare midriffs!! 😡)
The figure on the end is a eureka miniature The I had & thought I would paint up & send as well

Templates for Bolt Action 2

Just received these fantastic templates from Charlie Foxtrot Models
The HE template usually comes in a set with some other markers & in clear,
 but I contacted Colin an he was more than happy to sell it on its own and in the yellow.
The arc template, I just bought because I thought why not 😀
I think the HE template is a more pleasing design than the  "official"  Bolt Action one.
All in al Charlie Foxtrot Models  very happy with them & would recommend them to anyone wanting some templates
