The start of a new Chapter, or, my Kings of war Addiction.

Long have I been interested in 28mm mass fantasy battles.
However I’ve never had the drive to paint an army, there are many reasons for this;

I could’t afford it, I had no willing opponents, painting tones of the exact same mini is infuriatingly dull, GW changed the WFB rules and army lists to quickly for me to keep up with it in terms of painting and financially not to mention just how badly the game went down hill.

There is more but that’s all boring.

Kings of War has me invigorated and excited I’m churning units out like there is no tomorrow, well by my usual standard anyway. I was lucky to pick up a load of stuff at very reasonable prices from a friend of mine over a period where I could afford it and now It’s getting close to its début on the table.

I’ve been working on the centrepiece for my undead army a diorama multi based zombie legion, I’ll drop in pics of the process and some text about how I did it, please feel free to let me know what you think in the comments.

Thanks for looking.

A ghost of his former self

I had taken a break, of several years, from painting.
When I started back this was one of the first things I did.
-It looks like its from the reaper dark haven legends set-
I did it a bit differently to what I had done before. I found my style had changed, I was exploring more possibilities and not worrying what people might say about it.
It was at that point I started to realise there was no wrong way to paint, No mistakes to make (apart from bleeding colour across boarders) its what you want it to look like that counts.
Have fun with it and explore the possibilities.

New Post, no I’ve been hanging about here a while.

I have no idea what GW game/set this bit of scenery is from (again any info welcome)
I got it with a badly damaged Balrog and striped a tone of paint off it before re-basing and repainting.
Nice wee piece though.

Don of the dead

Armoured skeleton by games workshop.
The model is metal the shield plastic.
It makes for a good undead champion or death knight.
Unfortunately I can’t remember where I picked him up, I do know that I got the shield from elsewhere.
