Battle of the Hürtgen Forest - 82nd Airborne Division #1

Today for something different. At least scale wise... some of you may have already seen I had done a hand full 15mm U.S. Paratroopers quite some time ago. Now while I had my recent clean out I stumbled over them again and as nobody seemed willing to buy them I gave the rest of them a go.

Rush for Berlin 18: Further Russian Reinforcements

After obviously having rediscovered my painting Mojo and especially my love for Russian soldiers in WW2 I had a crack on some more of these buggers. All of the figures are from Warlord Games again and definitely are some of their better newish sculpts. For the most part I dislike the comic style some or better most of their newer figures, for example the Waffen-SS or German Heer, have to them. Especially most of their "Separate Head System" often look more like some ugly grimaces than real faces. Same with the heads for their "Siberian Veterans" plastics box. Somehow they seem to imagine all Siberians beeing slant eyed maniacs.... *rant off*

The Great War Project No.6: The Great War Painting Club figure

As some of you will probably know there's a "Great War Painting Club" thing going on at the Lead Adventure Forum right at the moment. So in order to take part I grabbed me one of those Russian Stormtroopers from Brigade Games sitting on my shelf and waiting patiently to see some paint.

Fall of the western Empire 18: 2nd unit of Palatinae ready for battle

With the football fever still raging over here at Moiti towers I have a convenient excuse not to do much painting lately.
Despite beeing still tired to the bones from a weekend in Austria celebrating the stag party of a close friend of mine, followed by two long football nights, I finally managed to make some shots of my newest additions to my Late Romans.

Fall of the western Empire 17: New frankish warriors

Well, it's been a while since I wrote my last post and frankly I really didn't paint that much during the last few weeks.
On the one hand this had something to do with the blistering heat we were to 'enjoy' for a couple of weeks...

The Great War Project #5: Russian Shocktroopers

I'm back from my holidays in sunny Italy. After a week of sun and absolutely fantastic food this means back to business. I didn't even try to catch up with all the blog posts I missed so my sincere apologies to all of you.

Yesterday, after a hand full of sleep after all night driving, I finished the bases on my first full squad of tsarist Russian Shocktroops.

Fall of the western Empire 16: 2nd base of Roman archers

This week I painted up the figures for my 2nd base of late Roman archers for Dux Bellorum. This brings me to a total of 31 of 32 recommended points for DB.
The missing point I think I'll fill up with some frankish mercenary skirmishers for now.

A small village in Germania

Despite not beeing overly productive over the last month I managed to finish a few items for my Dark Age gaming.
At Tactica I bought the superb Viking Civilians by Wargames Foundry.
I think they're not only usable for Vikings but also will do just fine for any civilians throughout the Dark Ages.
Trouble in the village

DUST Tactics in Greyscale

Well, since I stumbled over Curt's WW1 in Greyscale project over on his blog I knew I had to try this out one day. As I recently started a spring clean out I found these two figures from the game DUST Tactics and suddenly inspiration struck.
