I don't have the official figures, don't like the new models anyway. I did find some old Battlemaster Wolves (sans riders) in my basement. So these will have to do.

Milliput to cover up the saddle.

I paint the bases first.

A Very quick and easy paint job. Just 5 colors and we are ready to go.

Here they are on my little Undead Diorama.

Definitely wouldn't want to meet them in a dark alley or in a dark cemetery!

You've done a grand job, they certainly look the part

Yup, and over 20 years ago I got lucky by walking into a toy store and saw that they were selling there Battlemaster games for.

$9.99 USD plus tax.

They had three of them, though not after I saw what price they were selling for.

Got all three of them and when I got to my car I open all of them and put what I wanted (I.E. the miniatures) all into one box and trashed what I did not want.

So for less than $40 USD I picked up 300+ miniatures.

Sold the Chaos miniatures plus the Banners and towers and picked up bases for the Empire and the Orks and Goblins.

Those miniatures formed the core of two Warhammer Armies.

For basically nothing since I made back what I spent when I sold the other stuff.

3 friends and I split 7 boxes back when they were selling cheap like that. Bretonnian, Orcs, Empire, and Chaos armies!

Great work with the milliput!

Thanks for the comments.


Mithmee, I walked in to a game store and saw the same deal. Battle Master Blow out. I only snagged 1. Told my friends and they descended like locust. I should have kept my mouth shut.

I still have The knights in my Empire Army. Here is a shot from a game last year. And yes I'm embarrassed I never grassed them. I am a horrible person. :P
