Hi guys

Got a little paint on my fantasy hoplites, a bit to do on them yet, the shield decals were a pain due to the curve on the shield, scored them with lots of cuts with a hobby blade and used decal softener, did tge job in the end.

Undercoated the chaos knights, red or olive green? I'm sort of partial to the nurgle look.

Printed out some hobgoblins (free from thingyverse), a forest dragon dark elf (for scale, need to make him thinner, than I'll print the whole army) and some green skin miniatures beastmen archers, will be adding some chaos Dwarves to the hobgoblins, and adding a lot to the beastmen, the details on the forest dragon and greenskin minis are a bit chunky as they are designed for 10mm, but I don't mind.

What's with the broken bases? The mini's are great. The bases are… Curious. Cheers!

These look great. What rules are you planning to use?

You do realise they aren't finished? I need to complete the basing, undercoat then paint, the printed bases I put on them were to big for the coin, I like the coins as they give the figure weight.

I'm a modeller/painter/collector, not really a gamer, hence the 1/72, if I was a gamer I'd do 28mm.

Plenty of gaming to be done in 1/72!

No doubt, but the majority of gamers are 28mm, followed by 15mm, if I was trying to fit into others games I'd do another scale, but I like 1/72, it's a good compromise of character/size

Hmmm yes "other gamers". I don't really worry about them, play solo mostly.

Looks good! Any progress on this?
Thanks.
