Do you know of any good miniatures?

I'm looking for 15mm fantasy evil men. Preferable with heavy armour and some kind of skull face-mask.
Do anyone know of any good ones?
What I'm looking for is Drakkarim, something similar to this one.

First part of my Hawaii army

This is the first part of my Hawaiian army. They are funny to paint, lot of flesh.

Late Roman archers

These are Late Roman archers from Khurasan Miniatures. They were very fun and nice to paint. I'm looking forward to see the rest of the range.
I'm not to happy with the painting of their faces, but the painting didn't look that bad live. And I have re-painted one of the trousers grey.

A HotT Game

A few days ago me, Matts and Andy fought our first HotT game (HotT is a Fantasy DBA game). It was very close, but in the end we won with 9-8. Our left was under hard pressure but they were standing firm. Out right pressured our opponents hard, but their Blade general killed everything that was thrown against him (including the Sneaker). But the enemies' centre was defeated and at the end of the battle there was a big hole there.
The troops have been deployed.

Matts is already starting to celibrate.

The troops are advancing.
The armies are standing still, waiting for the other to do the first move.
The first combat on the right.

The enemies on the right have been defeated!

There is a big whole on the right!

Matts have stabilized the right.

"What to do?"

The centre is pushing forward.

And now there is a small hole in the centre.

The battle is over!

What DBA army should I paint next?

I don't know what DBA army to paint next. I want to paint a nice and colourful army. The miniatures should be nicely sculpted and have multiple poses. And it's a bonus if the army is funny in some way (like have a Litter general, be very obscure or just plain silly). Do you have any suggestions? I have been thinking about Hawaiian, Post-Mongol Samurai, Mound Builder (from Eureka), Aztec, Zapotec (from Black Hat) and Late Carthaginians (from Corvus Belli). All suggestions are welcome!

The Greaco-Bactrians are here

This is pictures of my Graeco-Bactrian army. They were a blast to paint. The miniatures are from Xyston.

The Greek/Makedonian pike phalanx. The shields blazons are suppose to be Zeus.

The Persian part of the army.

Some Greeks and Makedonians.

My lovely elephant.

The camp (from Baueda).

Some Mountain Indians (the guys to the left are not part of this army, they just wanted to be in the picture).

The Tlingit is here

I have now finally painted my Tlingit army from Eureka. They were extremely fun to paint with their wooden helmets and armour.

These are the skirmishers. Two nice Ps with guns.

And these are the warriors. In the middle you can see the army's general.

First element for my evil HotT army

This is my first element for my evil HotT army. It's Orc Lurkers, waiting to find some poor victims in the thick forests were they are lurking for enemies passing by.

More Fantasy

When it comes to fantasy I'm not only interested in females, males are also nice. Here is my new buddy. It's the Mouth of Sauron from GW's LotR range.

Some Fantasy

I'm a historical guy, but sometimes it's fun with fantasy. Here is a nice one from Hasslefree, very nice to paint. The base is from Micro Art Studio.

How to paint skin, a lot of skin

Someone asked me how I paint skin on naked or almost naked guys. This is how I do it:

When I paint flesh I normally use three colours and an ink. The reason is that the figure will look flat and boring if I only use one, but if I use three all the details will be seen. The colours are there to show the curves of the human body; to show the muscle bone structure. I will here paint two naked dudes. They are Greeks, so I will paint one as European, but the other will painted as a South American. You don’t need to use the exact right skin colour; in 15mm and 28mm it won’t matter anyway. What is important with American Indians is that their skin tone is a little redder. The colours I will use are Foundry’s Flesh and GW’s flesh ink for the European guy and GW’s Dark flesh, Vermin Brown, Foundry’s Flesh A (but you can as well use Vallejo or GW’s Bronzed Flesh) and GW’s brown ink for the South American.

Sorry for the pictures, they are way too light.

1) I start with priming them black.
2) Then I start painting the darkest flesh colour. Make sure that the colour covers the figure. Remember that it’s better to paint to thin layers instead of one thick.
Stage 2
3) After this I will use ink at some points; around the eyes, ears and mouth. Don't forget the fingers and toes.
Stage 3
4) After it have dried I go back with the darkest flesh colour and paint it where needed. I have done that at the circled parts on the European guy.
Stage 4
5) Now I paint the middle flesh colour, covering maybe 50-75% of the skin. I will paint all areas that are not in shadows and those areas that are in recessions. This doesn't show up so good at the European guy, so instead look at the Indian guy.
Stage 5
6) Now we are almost done. The last paint will only be used at those areas that are on the top in the sun. I should have taken the picture from above, but look at the circled areas on the Indian guy to see a little of what I mean.
Stage 6

Does this sound complicated? It isn’t. If you have a naked guy DBA army you can paint it up very fast. We are talking about hours, not days.

7) And we can finish it with painting some eyes on them. The circled area is just a reflection.
Stage 7 Finished dudes.

The Spanish troops are never stop coming, just more and more are coming over the hills to join the battle against the evil Romans.

Bactrian-Greek Phalanx

This is my Bactrian-Greek phalanx. The shield is Zeus with a spear in one hand and a thunderbolt in the other. It was very fun to paint.

Finally Done

My Norman army is finally done. This is the last Knights I needed to paint and base. Maybe I will add more to this army in the future, maybe not.

When basing the Argyraspides, I really get the urge to paint some pikemen. So after looking around I decided I wanted to paint a Persian pikemen (Pantodapoi), perfect for a successor army. All in his unit will have the same uniform, except for the trousers; I would hate to paint 32 pants like that. I haven't painted the shield yet, but it will be like the one in the Alexander Osprey book (H2).

Basing Pikemen

Here is some newly based old figures. They are based on a 40x80 base. Two of them together and they count as a front rank with support. They are suppose to be Argyraspides, equipt for Alexander's Indian campaign or later.
