Death to the Dryskins No More...

... or at least for a while. I contacted Iannick a few days ago to let him know I'm withdrawing from the Old World Army Challenge and promised more info for a blog post.

At the start of this month, I painted forty models in seven days.



None of them were Slann.

Iannick's Zrazoig, Fang and more Doom

It does not seem to bother them than their chances of survival are low, but then only the most crazed Goblins would want to be propelled in the air anyway. These Goblins are known as Doom Divers, although it is usually for other (saner) goblins to call them "Bat Wings Loonies". In the dirty, brutal and often painfully short life of a goblin the chance of swooping through the air and smashing right through their enemies is just too good to miss. The Doom Divers know that the ultimate excitement of diving through the air is at high speed is well worth the considerable risks. Though it is a sad way for a Goblin to go, it is infinitely more better than to die an ignoble death by the hands of a hungry Troll.

The first submission of January is Zrazoig, the almighty Shaman, and his trusted sacred spider, Fang the hairy.

Andrea’s Army General and two further Wardancers (205pts)

Hi Folks!
This January force is 205 points worth and include the army general, on steed, and two wardancers.

The general was one of my first wood elf minis, part of the force I used to play in the 4th/5th edition, back in the ‘96. I only changed the steed. 


It was originally an unbarded steed, as it can be expected from a light and swift army like that of forest folk. However, I was impressed by the art drawing of a wood elf general on the army book, whose steed wears a magnificent barding. So, this time I decided to provide the barded steed to match that drawing. Here is the result! 





Anthony's Beasts of the Blue Serpent Clan (195pts)

While it has become prevalent amongst marauding tribes, in truth the Cult of the Blue Serpent has found sympathizers even amongst seemingly normal members of society. For there will always be those amongst us who wish for nothing more than to see the world burn. However, in the Realms of Chaos, it is no small wonder that beastmen form a significant portion of the Serpent god's followers and they are second in number only to marauding thugs. Disfigured, mutated and abhorrent in every way, beastmen of the Cult wait in fervent anticipation for the wakening of the Serpent god when the world of the righteous will be brought to its knees and annihalated in one final act of contempt.

Lissanne's High Elf Tower of Snow/Swords of Hoeth (208 pts)

10 Swords (16 each), including standard bearer, musician and champion (+48 pts)
'There too were the folk of the Pillar and the Tower of Snow. and both these kindred were marshalled by Penlod'- the Book of Lost Tales vol 2.  the Fall of Gondolin.


Another of the 12 Houses of Gondolin, Swords of Hoeth as the Tower of Snow.
The champion 'Penlod the Tall' is half a head taller than the other rather tall figs, so is a accurate figure to be unit champion. I decided I didn't like the look of the shields I had put on the test figure after all, so these have no shields.

Millsy's Empire: Duke Leopold von Bildhofen (157pts)

G'day Guys,

Here's my January submission, Duke Leopold von Bildhofen of Carroburg mounted on a pegasus. 157 points of feathery, fanciful goodness to take me past the 600 point mark.



It's a lovely model but was a right bugger to paint and assemble. Being an all metal model I elected to do the rider and saddle separately to make things less likely to topple over or get damaged. Whilst that certainly helped with the painting, assembly and gluing caused me a number of headaches with glue spills and a repaint of part of the pegasus. Such is life!

Thomas's High Elves: Lord Teflon 216 Pts

January is fast upon us.  I was going to go with the bowmen but decided I was on a roll with the horses I would knock out my general this month.
