Showcase: Stone Guardians, Knight Artorias and Sif!

 


Heyhey, here's more Dark Souls figures! Knight Artorias, one of the fan favourites due to his tragic backstory and his good doggo, who picked up his master's sword to  guard his grave and be one hard as nails boss in Dark Souls - Geat Wolf Sif.

The GREAT Wargaming Survey 2022!

 



Heyhey, it's time again for the 2022 installment of the Great Wargaming Survey. For many years now, Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy magazine would like to know about your wargaming preferences and opinions, so we all get a nice look at some trends and developments in the wargaming world.

Each participant gets a discount code for a purchase at Karawansaray Publishing's website and a handful of free PDF articles from past issues of WSS magazine. If you choose to supply an e-mail adress as well you can take part in a prize draw. 

It's a good thing and in the past led to some very interesting insights. Give it a shot and tell your friends. The wider a group they reach, the more conclusive the results are.

Showcase: 10mm League of Augsburg

 


I painted Pendraken Miniatures' League of Augsburg range for their web store. That was quite an experience. Here's why:
.) Pendraken's LoA range is beautiful. 
.) All uniforms are based on actual regiments.
.) There is an amazing number of command figures in this range, and late 17th century commanders are just fun to paint. 

For the full extent of the range, have a look at Pendraken's online store!

Showcase: Super Dungeon Explore Pt. 33

 


Look at them! Just look. There is no reason not to love Super Dungeon Explore figures. :D Tricky to paint, but it's very much worth putting the hours in. Proper big too. Those are 25mm bases.


Hope you like them as well!

Showcase: 14th Dragoons and Lord Cumberland





Here's a little detour into the middle of the 18th century. More exactly the Jacobite Uprising in 1745. This is a small unit of the 14th Dragoons, along with Lord Cumberland (and his personal drummer).


These 28mm figures are by Flags of War. Obviously known for producing fine, fine paper flags for wargamers, but they also produce a range of 28mm figures specifically for this conflict. Which is something I appreciate a lot.

All the better that these figures are really, really pretty and excellently cast. Tip top quality and certainly worth a look. 

The Cumberland figure is by Warlord Games and comes with two hand options - a staff or a big glass of brandy. I was told to use the former on this figure. Still, he cuts an impressive figure.


I wasn't allowed to base these chaps, but tried to circumvent that by taking the above scenic shots. Which involved a LOT of figures falling over and me cursing a lot. :-P Hope you like the figures!
