Happy Halloween!

That's it pretty much. :) Watch films, meet friends, have foods. Play miniature games!

Maybe don't dress up as any sort of clown this year. And if you're really, really tall and lanky don't wear a black suit. :P Have fun, be safe.

Showcase:15mm WW2 Field Fortifications

Here are some nice WW2 field fortifications with a slight urban theme by Baueda Wargames. I painted these straight out of the box (well, I cleaned them). These are all one-piece resin casts. Three large ones (which can be paired up for larger all-around ruins and one smaller one. These are sized to fit Flames of War bases (of course), but they work equally well for single-based 15mm figures. I can't help but think that the sandbags look a tad large, but that's no real issue.

I tried to go for realistic looking mortar between the bricks for the first time using white putty. Painting those actually was rather fast, and was equally fun playing around with weathering, all kindsa of dust looks and so on.

For a very short review: These are good and Baueda got a pretty nice variety on fortifications and such. Well worth checking out.

P.S.: This is the preview of a whole bunch of posts about a WW2 Normandy 1944 project, so stay tuned!

Showcase: Dreadfleet Grimnir's Thunder (and monsters!)

Grimnir's Thunder, always a fan favourite. Again, a very unique design AND it comes with a unique auxiliary vessel!

Showcase: Mordheim Skaven Assassins

As the title says! It's a whole lot of Skaven Assassins (and a flag bearer) for a Mordheim Skaven warband! You can see two incarnations of Snikch, at the centre and the far left. Very nice minis, all of them. I kept the rusty theme on the blades I use throughout this warband, enhanced by some poison looking stuff. Everything warpstone-related is glowing a bit.

Showcase: Dreadfleet Heldenhammer

It's huge and red and has an unholy amount of firepower and a giant mechanical golden man with a huge hammer in the front - it's the Heldenhammer!
