Here they are!


Well, the Swedes are ready for battle! On the right is the Närke-Värmlands regiment and on the left is the Elfsborg regiment. I really like them, I can't wait for more!

Persian Colonist Cavalry


My Persian DBA army are almost done now. I have only the General left to paint.

No more Swedes today






I had hoped to have the rest of the Swedes done today, but no. Instead here are some pictures from a concert last night. The photos sucks big time, but it is Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb. They were pretty cool, especially Nitzer Ebb who ruled big time!

Swedes


Today Musiketeer Miniatures new Great Northern War Swedes arrived. I got excited and started to paint them right away. The one on the right is from the Närke-Värmlands regemente, while the one on the left is from the Björneborg regemente. I haven't based them yet, but it will be the standard basing that can be seen on other figures.

More Persians


Here is the Persian light cavalry.

Repainted shield


Well, I wasn't to happy with the Takabara shields. So after looking at Little Big Men Studios new transfer I got "inspired" to paint mine. Thanks LBMS!

Persian transfers

Good new for all you persian lovers out there. Little Big Men Studios has released transfers for Xyston's Persians. There are three different sheets, for guard infantry, for kardake and for takabara.

Sunday, October 15, 2006

More Persians


Here are some Takabara (3Ax in DBA).

Saturday, October 14, 2006

Persian skirmishers


Here are my Persian skirmishers, Xyston as always.

Monday, October 09, 2006

Persian Guard cavalry



The third stand in my new Persian DBA army is the Persian Guard Cavalry.

Sunday, October 08, 2006

Aitolian army


Here is one more DBA army, this time it's a Aitolian (II/5e) army. In the front are a lot of skirmishers and behind them a small phalanx. In the back are some light cavalry.

Persian Guard infantry


Long time since the last up-date. During October I have been painting an Aitolian DBA army and now I have started on a Late Achaemenid Persian DBA army. This is the first two stands, Persian Guard infantry. Don't forget to look at the trousers on the right stand, they were a real pain to paint. The figures are from Xyston.

Indians


Here are some of my indians.

Sunday, September 10, 2006

Alexandrian Macedonian army


Here is my Alexandrian Macedonian army. In the fron we have the ligh troops, Thracians (1xAx, 1xPs) and Greeks (1xAx, 1xPs). Behind them are the phalanx (6xPk), with the Hypaspists to the left. In the center are the Companions (1xKn, 1xCv) and the Prodromoi (1xLH).

This picture is actually old (it's from last weekend), the two Companions are now swapped with a Thessalian cavalry (1xCv) and a nice mounted Makedonian general (with Companions, 1xKn).

Thursday, September 07, 2006

Athenian army


This is my Athenian DBA army. In the front we have the Hoplites (8xSp), behind them are the rest (1xCv, 1xLH, 1xAx and 1xPs).

Tuesday, September 05, 2006

Thracian army


Here is my 15mm Xyston Thracian DBA army. It's 1xCv (in the middle), 2xLH (at both sides of the general), 8xAx (everywhere) and 2xPs (in the front, to the left). They are mid 3rd century BC, so some are Hellenised, some are not.

Greek Skirmishers


Here is some of my greek skirmishers.

Something different (WWII)


Todays picture is of my late war winter germans, Artizan of course.

The Last King (Aztec)


Todays picture is of King Cuauhtemoc, who was the last Aztec king.

Edit: I'm not to happy with this one, I think he will need a back banner.

Sunday, July 30, 2006

A king or two (Aztec)


Today's picture is king Axayacatlin in his Xipe Totec suit. The suit is possibly made of human skin.

Saturday, July 29, 2006

One more Tzitzimitl guy (Aztec)


Yes, you can never have to many guys in Tzitzimitl (demon of the dark) suits. And here is another one. The warrior is from TAG and the back banner is from Bear's Den.

3 more new photos (Norman)




The last of the new photos.

New photos of old friends (Norman)






Here are some better photos of my Normans.

New photos

I will take new photos of all the old Normans and publish them as fast as possible.

Eagle Knights (Aztec)


Here are my eleven eagle knights. You can spot all of them, can't you?
When will there be some new Normans? Well, it will take some time, first I will need to paint four more Aztecs, then I will paint some Norman cavalry.

Wednesday, July 26, 2006

More Aztecs


Todays picture is a lvl 3 priest.

Tuesday, July 25, 2006

Todays picture (Aztec)


Todays pictures are lvl 4 jaguar knights, Aztecs of course.

Monday, July 24, 2006

Normans


Here are some Norman spearmen.

Old Friends (Greek)


And now for something very old. These Greek skirmishers are some I painted years ago when I started in this hobby. Originally they were for my Makedonian army, but now after a nice re-basing they are perfect for my late republican Roman army.

Sunday, July 23, 2006

Hoplites

I said I was doing some Xyston miniatures in my last post, so here is a picture of the little buggers. Only problem (but not the only one) is that the shields are so big so not much else can be seen in the picture!
Enough with all this nonsense, tomorrow there will be more Normans.

Some words about my different projects

The Normans aren't my only project; I do also have several others going on. My major projects are the Normans (Crusader), Aztecs (TAG and Foundry) and late republic Romans (Companion and Foundry). Soon there will be some based skirmishers for my Roman army, so pictures are coming soon. I do also have some minor projects, the biggest one is my 15mm Hellenistic army (Xyston) of which I have painted very little (51 elements), but I have hundreds unpainted. Other projects are my 3rd century Romans (A&A), Makedonians (Foundry), Trojan War (Foundry), Carthaginians (Renegade), LotR (Games Workshop) and Imperial Guards (Games Workshop). The Makedonians are almost done so not much will happen there (except for re-basing), but much next major project will be the 3rd century Romans, they are looking mighty nice.

Do I have some finished projects? Not really, all projects are on-going, but my Late War WWII Germans (Artizan) are more or less done. My ACW (Renegade and Foundry) are also done.

Any projects I have abandoned? Yes, I have realized that I will never have enough time to paint my Early Imperial Romans (Foundry), so they are a lost project.

Any new projects coming up? I'm easily tempted and Musketeer Miniatures says they will make some Seleukids next year so that sounds very interesting.

That’s all I think, but I have surely forgot to mention a few odd things (like my Eureka Russians or Shadowforge Amazons).

Tlaxcaltecs


Here are three Tlaxcaltec suit-warriors. They were sworn enemies of the Aztecs. The Tlaxcaltecs painted their faces red "which gave them the look of devils".

More Flemish


The last of the Flemish have now arrived.

Norman Knights are arriving


Not only the allies, but also the Norman Knights are arriving for the invasion. Here are some dismounted Knights.
