I thought I had uploaded these chaps at an earlier stage of painting,
but I hadn't, so after goodness knows how many years, I've finally given the trolls of my early years a good paintjob.

Fresh from their parent's basements, the trolls roam the land in search of mountain dew to drink and insulting comments to add to forum threads

The Bishop! (part two)

Today's update features some almost-but-not-quite-finished models. I'll be varnishing them tomorrow, but I thought some work in progress stuff was overdue.

Ok Devious, don't move!

Ultima Ratio Regis

"The Last Argument of Kings", which terribly quotable monarch Louis XIV had written on his cannons. I've painted up that lovely gun I got on the cheap, as well as most of the monks, a 'Mech and a peasant.

Dynamic action shot, as I mentioned, colour scheme based on the Arsenal football strip.

I've been very baaaad

In this season of post-Christmas purging, like many gamers I made a small resolution not to buy any more models until I've painted the ones I have. This recently went out of the window when a retailer had an online bargain bin sale with a few things I wanted at knockdown prices. The lure of cheap models with the fear of limited stock is such a terrible snare.

No apologies for the pun.

Spider 'Mech!

Does whatever a Spider-'Mech does
You know how it goes, no blog updates come for ages and the next update is three times the usual length. So many 'Mechs to post here, so many new rules to gush about, so little time.

Back to the 1,200 Point Challenge

Yet again Mantic have dangled the possibility of a big global participation campaign in front of me, so I decided to count up my Normans to see if I had enough. After 30 minutes ranking everyone up in the movement trays (I probably should have provided a picture...) I discovered I was 4 crossbowmen and a few licks of paint shy of 1,500 points!

Impulse buys from my local gaming shop/cafe. Lovely figures though.
