Roman commander (from Gladiator) finished


Hi all!

Thought I would finally share my finished Roman commander for my son's collection!

It is the "Unleash Hell!" figure from Warlord Games, along with the Aquilifer and a few soldiers to fill out the tray.


Overall I think he turned out pretty sharp!  Maybe not perfect, but pretty good!

Germanic Chieftan Ariovistus from Warlord Games done!



So, I got the commander finished up for the OpFo for my son's Romans... a Germanic Chieftan and his guard!


Here he is... I had originally bought him to paint a crazy display figure, but then realized he should just lead the Germans!  So I painted him up and stuck him on a movement tray the same size as the rest (I'll take photos soon, promise!)


Overall I think he looks suitably intimidating!

Some new shelving at the House of War!


Hi all!

Well... I had run out of room in the House of War!

It's a depressing moment, when you realize you are just plum out of space... nothing more can be added!

And unfortunately I know that a pretty cool Christmas gift is on its way, which DESPERATELY needs room... 


So I added one LAST shelf!  Overall I think it fits fairly well... maybe a *touch* crowded, but not really... and it leaves space (where the viking helmet USED to be) for the likely final addition!

So here is the room, with it!



Some rice paddies for my 6mm samurai finished



Hey all!

Well, I've finally turned my eye towards doing some scenery for my 6mm samurai... so here are four rice paddies!


They are simple... card base, some berms built up using sand and white glue, some varnish, some GHQ civilians, and some static grass!


Here are two smaller fields, with a water buffalo on the left one led by a kid, and a few workers (and a roaming buffalo) on the right.


Here are the two larger rice paddies... the left being worked, and the right with its workers just arriving for the day!

I had two more that got lost in test runs, both to bad varnish spills:)

Some Germans to fight the Romans...


Hey all!

Well, I have four units of Romans done (my son painted a fourth group entirely on his own... and they turned out great!) so I wanted to get someone for him to fight!

So I bought a box of Germanic tribesmen, some skirmishers with javelins, and a general.  I am going SUPER simple with them... I actually undercoated them with a brown, and then just went in and added, and then dipped.  Now I just have to grass them, and get their trays done, and voila!


Here are the Romans, btw.  Four units done, four to go.
