    Miniatures pt91 – Knights 

    Finishing my only-games pile is the Knights with Spears. These have clear inspiration from Renaissance era full plate armour with Greek Hoplite parts (Hoplon shield, Helmet). Lovely sculpts, my only gripe is that they’re big! Much bigger than my already big Demonworld 18mm miniatures. So I think their only use on my table will be as Armour Golems of sorts.

    Miniatures pt90 – Plague Knights 

    Continuing on my Duncan Shadow sculpts printed by only-games.co, here are some not-chaos warriors, aka Plague Knights.

    For the paint scheme I went with a reddish purple cloths, flesh with a yellowish tint, and metallic silver colour for the armour. Loved the concept, loved the sculpts, loved the end result. Only slight gripe is the print could have been a tad bit cleaner, as some print lines are visible.

    Miniatures pt89 – Cultists 

    I’ve gotten some resin 3d printed miniatures from only-games.co. Loved the sculpts and they had some fantasy ranges in 15mm that I wanted, so I decided to try them out. Duncan makes some great designs and it was really fun to paint these cultists with flails. They’re quite chonky so they’re on the high end of heroic 15mm (18mm), quite on par with my Battle Valor miniatures.

    I went with a red cloak and ochre rope belts. Simple paint scheme but striking result.

    Miniatures pt 88 – Savage Lizardmen 

    Took me a while to paint this Savage Lizardmen warband using Sampler Packs (1 of each pose) from each type of Savage Lizardmen infantry from the Hordes of Things range of Alternative Armies.

    I wasn’t sure about the paint scheme, but since I’ve already painted some blue Lizardmen from Blighthaven, I went with a classic green colour scheme and earth tones altogether. Sandy base with brown sand and brown grass.

    These took a while to be painted because I batch painted the entire score of them to ensure that I use the same colours and they look uniform. There are warriors, blades, pole arms, spears, with shields and archers, four of each type.

    Ps. Now that I look them all together I can see that there is a double pose of a spearman and I’m missing one pose from the sampler pack. I realised it too late though, maybe I’ll have to order a new pack in my next order.

      Nice individual shots, a group photo to start would also be good.

        Thanks!
        Had the group photo as a “Featured Image” of the post but you’re right! I’ll also add it in the post as it can be missed otherwise

    Miniatures pt87 – Nagas 

    Here’s some Naga Swords and Naga Archers from the Alternative Armies Hordes of Things range.

    I tried making my own DIY sand using Acrylic Matt Medium, Yellow Ochre Paint and Baking Soda. The texture came out nice but I wasn’t a huge fan of the colour since coverage wasn’t great and I had to apply wash and drybrush on top. Came out a bit darker than I’d like. The texture is right though. Next time I’ll apply it over a light brown undercoat and it should be fine.

    Miniatures pt86 – Winged beasts (2) 

    Here’s a Cockatrice and a Chimera from Alternative Armies Hordes of Things range that I got a while ago and had them sketch primed waiting to be painted.

    I finally finished them, and what I really enjoyed this time around was basing. I got me some packs of sand from the local dollar store, very cheap, in three different colours/shapes. There’s brown sand, gray sand and dark gravel. This means I no longer have to worry about painting, washing and drybrushing my bases. It’s brown paint -> glue -> carefully placed gravel -> sand spots -> grass -> let dry. That’s way faster than before. I always found basing boring (especially after going through the entire mini painting stage) but very important to have a nice looking mini. With this technique I get nice results in a single gluing step.

    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).
