    Miniatures pt84 – Adventurers (2) 

    Here’s some adventurers from the tabletop fantasy Asgard range by Alternative Armies. I really like these sculpts and how they’re armed to the teeth and carrying all their gear. I went with a bit different paints and basing than my standard fantasy, to make it feel like they’re in the dungeon (and gave the bases a grey instead of green rim).

    Miniatures pt83 – Orc Horde 

    Got me some Alternative Armies orcs from the Hordes of Things range to try out. These are a bit smaller and less chunky than my Demonworld orcs, almost like goblins. So I went with a very pale green skin using a white base and the Army Painter Military Shader wash which gives a green tone. I went with a red tones (Karmin, Vermillion, Burnt Sienna) for their clothing and even used lots of bronze for metal parts as they have an Ancient Greece/Rome feel.

      Your blog and mini painting have got me investing in 15mm scale miniatures. Do you know of any particular vendor that has decent 15mm soldiers in plate mail? Something that could pass for a knight or paladin? Struggling to find, especially in US. Thanks

        I think your best best would be Khurasan miniatures, particularly their Historicals range at 13th-15th century. Just take care to read any information regarding the scale as it’s common for historicals to be “true 15mm” and there’s only a few historical ranges on the Khurasan website that are towards “heroic 15mm aka 1:100 or 18mm”.

        For heroic 15mm these spring to mind: https://khurasanminiatures.tripod.com/late-fourteenth-century.html

        You could also take a look at old glory 15s/20s but I haven’t tried these so I can’t say.
        At true 15mm you could take a look at splintered light miniatures player character sets.

    Miniatures pt82 – Dwarf Extras (2) 

    A few more of my Battle Valor miniatures. There was a mix up of my order it seems since I had ordered two different Dwarf women warriors, but I got one of them and a mystic. But this didn’t bother me since the mystic figure is beautiful. I’ve also added three Dwarian War Hounds without their handler since it’s not much usable in skirmish (have it haven’t painted it).

    Miniatures pt81 – Skeleton Characters 

    Here are a few undead minis from Battle Valor. A Decian Seer, a Decian Captain and a Decian Foot Captain. I chose the first two because they looked really cool as figures and the last because I needed a third skeleton archer (both for Five Leagues max archer number in skeletons and for KPS ‘3s’) units. They can work as skeleton leaders or Liches/Wraiths/Wights.

    Miniatures pt76 – Dwarf Warband 

    Here’s a Dwarian Warband from Batlle Valor. The two stone golems I’ve posted in a previous blog post, while I’ve also added two single figures, a couple of Dwarf bear riders.

    I really enjoyed these sculpts, these dwarves have a round look to them, and they are all unique, no doubles.

    It’s a command group (standard bearer, captain, musician), and three ram lancers, and four each of hammerers, axemen, swordsmen, crossbowmen, spearmen. I may have mixed up the shield of the captain with the bear rider slayer, but I can live with it.

    Miniatures pt75 – Winged beasts 

    Here are three winged monsters. A Manticore and a Griffon from Alternative Armies Hordes of Things range, and a Forest Dragon from Ral Partha Europe The Dark Eye range. The last one is a 28mm range but this is a small dragon and would fit my 15mm range with no issue.

    I painted the Manticore in a quite classic colour scheme. For the Griffon I went with a bald eagle inspiration for the eagle part. For the dragon I went with a Black Dragon colour scheme, by painting it mostly black and washing it with Military Shader to give it a more acid/slimy look.

    Miniatures pt74 – Golems and Hulking Beastman 

    Adding some monsters to my Five Leagues roster. Here are two Battle Valor Stone Golems that I’ve painted in a different scene to look more like Earth and Magma Golems or Elementals.

    For the Earth Golem I went with a mostly gray tone with brown parts, washed it with Military Shader for a wet look and drybrushed white to bring back the highlights. Added tufts of grass and static grass on it for a more realistic feel like it broke out of the ground.

    For the Magma golem I went with an inverse zenithal. White primed then drybrushed black as a base. Then did a yellow paint, crackle medium and burnt umber overbrushing.

    Also a Hulking Beastman from Ral Partha Europe Demonworld range that reminded me a lot of the classic Amiga (and PC) game Moonstone, because of its similarity to the Baloks!
