WW1 Central Powers Field Gun & Troops


I’ve been asked to paint a few Central Powers figures by one of the chaps that bought some of my WW1 Germans. So I thought that I might as well post them on here.

WW1 German Staff Car & LKII Stridswagen

While looking about in the loft at the weekend I looked through a case & found some bits that I had completely forgot that I had started.




First up was a Days of Yesteryear 1910 Benz Limousine that I had stripped, repainted & mostly put back together apart from the roof.
The driver was still to finish painting, so I thought why not finish it off.


 
Also was an Leichter Stridswagen (LKII) that was near enough finished.
 It maybe could do with a bit more weathering, but as I don't have a WW1 army anymore I don't think I will be bothering to do anything with it.
 

 
I think that the camera lens could need a clean though

Gripping Beast Revenants

Came across some pictures of a unit of Gripping Beast Revenants that I had painted back in April, whilst working away from home., that I’m sure I never posted.

I bought these in the Revenants Ltd Saga box set, & always really liked them, but never seemed to be able to motivate myself to paint them. So I thought with the imminent (at the time) release of age of magic I would take them away with me & start painting them.


The only problem being, was that the light was appalling in the room that I was staying in & I had only brought a small portable light with me!
So the skin tone ended up being very blue instead of grey! They were supposed to look like the Grenadier Undead Barbarian that I had previously painted!
But anyway they are done & have been killed many times in Rangers of Shadow Deep 😂

Saga Thorsday Painting Competition Eastern Princes Mounted Druzhina


Rog on the Saga Thorsday YouTube Channel recently ran a painting competition & I thought that it was as good  a reason as any to finally get on with some Rus Princes Druzhina, for a Eastern Princes Warband for Saga age of Crusades.
After a months frantic painting (& as luck had it I was working away on Guernsey for a week, so managed to paint every night for 5hrs or more) 
 

I had intended for them to have some of the fantastic shield transfers from Little Big Men Studios but they didn't arrive in time so I had to quickly paint a shield design on them before I could take the final pictures. I now have the transfers & will be adding them later (when I can be bothered!)

There were only (if I remember correctly) 6 entries in the end & I managed to win!!
The prize was some fabulous Warhansa resin 8 Rus Warriors/Militia Miniatures & a Rus Warlord.

Darkroot plant for RoSD

I needed a Darkroot Plant for Rangers of Shadow Deep & I really couldn’t be bothered to scratch build one, so I had a look about & found some evil plants in the Alternative Armies 15mm ranges & thought that they would be suitable.


The Darkroot has a main body & vines that come up through the ground to attack your rangers or civilians.

GRENADIER MINIATURES FUTURE WARRIOR



I’ve recently painted an old Grenadier miniatures Future Warrior figure as a swap for a demon thing that I will use in RoSD. I’ve had this figure kicking about for about 25 years! It was nice ti finally get it painted 😁.
When I started thinking about what colours to paint him, I thought that his baseball cap looked very similar to Pokemon one that my youngest has, so I decided to paint him as if Ash from the cartoon had grown up into a post apocalyptic world
I made to Poké ball from a pin with a large plastic head & painted it up to resemble one.

Rangers of Shadow Deep The Blood Moon Scenario Special Characters

For The Blood Moon Scenario, for Rangers of Shadow Deep, you need 4 special characters that act as auxiliary companions in your Ranger Company.

This was a great excuse to paint up some random fantasy figures that I’ve got, one of them was probably started about 20 years ago 😳

First up is a figure to represent Nicolan, the 5th son of an aristocratic family.
This is an old Warhammer Quest Noble, this is the figure that was started a long time ago!



Next is Covin, an old soldier, he”s supposed to only have light armour & be missing some fingers, but I love this figure & didn’t have one without a shield. This figure is from the now defunct Lewis Collins Miniatures, now available from Ye Alchemist.
 


Next up is Seb, a former Lumberjack. Described as A large hulking dishevelled man.
This is another cracking figure, which is a unreleased miniature & given to me by Rumcara over on LAF. 
 


 
Finally is Orla, a young red haired Hunter.
This is one of the fantastic a plastic Female Frostgrave Soldiers
