Fantasy Toy Soldiers: Centaurs, Ogres & Minotaurs.

I found these on eBay. I bought them with the intention of adding them to my upcoming battles of Dragonriders of the Styx. However I am very tempted to make them into a warband on their own. However they are quite a bit larger than 28mm.

My Other Generic Fantasy Models & Gaming

I have a lot of 15 & 28mm fantasy models. Most of which is unpainted or even primed. However I do have a few armies that are complete and I've decided to start converting those over to One Hour Wargames bases. Now this is all in addition to the 15mm models I've picked out to represent the two factions I want for a One Hour Game of Thrones campaign.

Although, I am not sure on what kind of campaign to run with them. I might consider the Forgotten Realms or the Pathfinder World. Another imaginary world of my own creation too might be suffice. I don't know yet. Part of what hinders gaming for me and others is a plausible narrative to the models and the battles.

I have models that I've owned for years that never saw service but I bought because I liked the models despite the fact that I couldn't at the time use them. This is all changing now thanks to One Hour Wargames and it's subtle yet brilliant tactical simplicity.

Several of my 28mm sets will be geared for the Dark Sun campaign I wish to game. However that leaves plenty for other settings. Also in addition to all this the 6mm fantasy bug is biting at me along with using 10mm Pendraken models to fill gaps in my One Hour Warmaster armies.

Also I feel that I am close to having a set of skirmish rules to accompany my One Hour Wargames mass battles.  But I am also looking hard at the Age of Sigmar rules. There are several skirmish only forces I would like to accomplish. I already have a set of 25mm Samurai and another of Fantasy Viking (Prince Wulfgar) types. Also I have a box set up to take to ReaperCon in the Spring for the metal trade.

Now in reference to settings I am growing tired of trying to flesh out whole new worlds from scratch and have started looking at existing campaign worlds to either game in or convert to my liking. For example the Iron Kingdoms, gaming as is. Warhammer Old World, gaming as is. The Dark Sun setting, modding to suit my interest. Middle Earth, modding to suit my interest.

Possible future campaign settings.....

One Hour Warmaster - Goblins Army

I bought these models on eBay last year and have rebased the core units for One Hour Warmaster. I will probably leave the character models alone on their oversize bases. This army still needs 2 more units to make it field ready. What the picture omits due to my error is that there is a second rank behind the gobbo warriors.

One Hour Warmaster - Chaos Army Update

I painted up the Chaos Warriors unit above for my Warmaster Chaos Army last night. This puts the unit total at 5. Only 1 more unit to make the army field ready. The army presently stands at:
  • 3 Units of Chaos Warriors
  • 1 Unit of Chaos Knights
  • 1 Unit of Daemon Pack
I would like to add a unit of flyers, Harpies or some other type of unit especially a hell cannon but finding one for Warmaster is going to be almost impossible.

Giant Dire Bat

I painted up this giant bat tonight. It is a Reaper Minis model. He will see service with both the Black Tower and a One-Hour Warhammer Vampire Counts army.

Remember These....

My dad bought my a box of these when I was a boy. I loved them. Wish I had kept them but you know the story because you've done similar. Anyway I found some on eBay and have bought enough to make 2 OHW armies from them and will sell the rest of the leftovers back on eBay.

I will put together a little mini-campaign series of battles in the mythical world of Styx. The Forces of the Lady (good guys) vs. the Demons from the Abyss (bad guys.)

More Dark Sun Material!

I have gathered up about all the source material I need to flesh out my Dark Sun: Age of the Wanderer campaign.

Orcs, Orcs, Orcs, Orcs...

For my Twin Kingdoms 1/72 campaign but could easily go with Middle Earth. It's becoming very tempting to switch Middle Earth to 1/72 as well but for now still sticking with GW models.

10mm Warmaster Chaos Army Thus Far...

Only 4 more units to make this army playable and ready to serve the Dark Lord Zhul, Chosen of Chaos.

Taken using the camera's flash as my flashlight battery was gone.

Better Pics of the 10mm Chaos Knights

New pictures of my 10mm Chaos Knights with both a flashlight for assistance and the camera's flash. I think the flashlight pics are better.

10mm Warmaster Chaos Knights

Here are the first painted units for my 10mm One-Hour Warmaster Chaos Army. An element of Chaos Knights. They serve the Dark Lord Zhul, Chosen of Chaos.  The lighting is not the best and the bases aren't flocked yet both of which contribute to the minis being hard to see but I am very proud of them. I did not dip them but dry brushed highlights on. However I may still brush some dip on though.
