WIP: American Civil War Civilians (also: Gettysburg[1993])



Here are the first few 28mm American Civil War civilians I'm painting for skirmish games with a narrative, namely the glorious Sharp Practice 2 of course. These rather fine minis are by Redoubt Enterprises. There are two more to come - a priest and another lady.

A few weeks ago instead of wargaming we met and watched the Gettysburg film from 1993. Here are a few (very few) thoughts on the film.

Showcase: Guildball Veterans!



Here's a quick in-between batch of Guild Ball miniatures. Mostly veteran versions of models I painted prior for various teams, plus Hag and of course the great Memory and Brainpan.

Good to see Steamforged constantly improving the quality of the sculpts and casts. Certainly not cheap, but the minis are top quality. The rules also are said to be really solid.

Showcase: Nurgle Poxwalkers




As some of you are aware I bought the new 40k starter box at release. First I wrote a 4-part review of the new rules and an overview of what's in the new bigbox. All of that you can read here: pt.1 , pt.2 , pt.3 , pt.4

Of course I gotta paint the minis from the box as well, starting with the Poxwalkers. In my opinion most interesting sculpts from the box.

I'm still not perfectly happy with the basing; I guess I should add some vegetation or something to it, but I'll choose on that once all the Nurgle minis are finished.  For now the Poxwalkers are done, and the horns weren't even as bothersome to paint than I thought. Hooray! Hope you like them.

Oh, and today's my birthday. W00t!
