Reaper Bones Giant.

  • Fencing. Several of my units will consist of the vertically challenged/ diminutively proportioned and so fencing may actually inhibit the armies ability to vanquish their foes.

    (I nearly put a few words like synergy into this paragraph; but I didn't want to trigger Ste' s stress monkey as he has enough of that to deal with at work).

    I may well make a few sections of Gulyay Gorod to count as pavise just to try them put. In the meantime we have a unit of swordsmen in team colours and a member of the latest unit to join up. It's pronounced Gehnomi BTW.

  • Ogres. Can't have too many. More Guard and a unit off handgunners.

    PS Can anyone identify the plastic shield. It turned up in my bits box during a damn good sort and I realised that my life will not be complete until I get another one.

  • Very good of you Bryan. I'd be happy with the shields; but there're bow arms and quiver on the sprue by the look of it and I have a hungry bits box.

    I can now order another Reaper Ogre and commence my cunning scheme aimed at bringing diversity to my Empire force.

    Two of those shields and a plastic horse tail will be all I need.

    Will you be able to de-sprue and post?

  • Ah ha! Another Reaper Bones Ogre joins the merry band. The heads are a little Meh! and so I've replaced them with GW Ogre heads, courtesy of Texas Jim, who I trust is somewhere safe and secure in the present kerfuffle. Better stop there!

    The old Reaper head's attached to his belt as a trophy.

    And another Leadbelcher's added to the Roster. Complete with Knoblar Igniter Rick Monson!

    And Bruno the Small Dog says Hi!

  • Another Ogre. In fact it's the last of the 3 Reaper Bones Ogres I had on my desk.

    I've changed the head again as I don't care for the Reaper originals and they fit in with the GW figures.

    And a unit of Whifflers. Still seen on occasion escorting Mayoral processions in England's green and pleasant land; it's a far cry from their role of keeping the troops in order and guarding the banners.

    All carry the Slaughter-swords that marked them out. And no guy that presents Forged in Fire; it's a corruption of the German Sclachtschwerter or battle-sword.

  • Ogres! Never one around when you need one and then three or four of them turn up all at once.

    This fellow was previously in the ranks of my ill-fated Khornate Chaos Renegades force.

    You know, the army that kills half of it's own shooting units in the first turn due to their weapon having it's very own gets hot rule.

    He's not so worried now as his close-range shooting will probably be factored into his melee factors. Oh, and another swordsman.

  • Okay. Now where was I? Two complete units for DR. A unit of Militia bowmen. Scurrilous rogues no doubt. Two are slightly modified from my Frostgrave band.

    And I've completed another unit of Swordsmen. I've stuck the warrior priest in there to make up the numbers, but I may add a banner in the near future.

    I've now got a small pile of 15mm Germans. I did them for Chain of Command, but the game shifted to 28mm once Shaun got his printers working. So I will base a bunch and put them on here

  • Blimey! It's 2021. Better get something painted.

    1. An Ogre. I should've listened! The newer plastic minis from GW have far too much detail. But I had to have this one.

    2. A standard. Mr Willis painted this one. I changed the colours as much as was necessary to allow him to fit in. I now have a simple scheme for banners, pennants and such. I enjoyed trying to add shade and su tle highlights, such as I'm able too. So it'll be my into the spares box'll to see what I have.

  • Blimey! Where's the time gone. Right. I give you Jack Lehatt. I don't have a mortar and so can't terrorise lurkers who think they can hide behind walls.

    Jack's powder monkey Nigel is busy estimating the range before cutting the fuse. I'm working on the spotter's tower to complete it.

    Then we have Captain Obadiah Johnson. A brave, resourceful and resolute roister foisted of a fellow who's ready to lead the Grenadier company of the King's Royal Yorkers against those misguided rebels and filthy French Johnnys who've seen fit to involve themselves in a row between Englishmen on how the world should be run. Colonel John T McDonald is next with the 84th. Or maybe that shadowy Russian fellow and his dragoons.......

    Finally that's a tray of 15mm Germans. Mostly the old Festung company boxset with added early war Grenadiers, Russian infantry guns, support weapons and a Polish Browning. Loads of stuff left to keep me busy.
