Warzone With A Difference and Other Ponderings...


Well my holidays are rapidly drawing to a close and the car is in for its MOT so we can't go out for the day, much to my frustration as it's the first sunny day this week! On the plus side, it has allowed me to get a bit of painting finished on some more Dark Legion figures that I sculpted while on the Isle of Skye:

 Undead Legionnaires and Necromutant Leader

Again they are a bunch of rather cartoony sculpts but were rather fun to put together and give me the core of a Dark Legion patrol for Warzone. Standing 20mm to the eye, they are mounted on 20mm round bases and should eventually be joined by some reinforcements as 4 legionnaires can't shoot for toffee.

I've also named them in honour of the places we visited on the Isle too!
 Necromutant Valtos

 Legionnaire Skye

 Legionnaire Portree

 Legionnaire Uig

 Legionnaire Staffin

Hopefully there will eventually be another 4-6 Legionnaires and a full squad of Necromutants led by a Centurion but they are on the backburner a bit as I have other bits and bobs that are getting me interested in 28mm at the present so I'm not sure when they, or my SD Orks will get rounded out a bit.

 Dark Legion Patrol

Here's a shot of the group with their exalted leader, Moloch the Nepharite of Algeroth:
Evil Minions!

I must admit there's a certain amount of satisfaction to seeing the group finished and painted and it reminds me of the halcyon days of university when I put together the Boar Company as I couldn't afford to buy any miniatures so sculpted my own!

Now the other big news that is roaring around the interwebs at the moment is the leaked images of the new Age of Sigmar game and it does appear to be very different from the whole Fantasy Battle aesthetic but I must admit I am a tad disappointed as GW have basically made a mash up of 40k and Fantasy battle rather than really trying something different. Still its too early to tell what the world they develop will look like so I am reserving judgement until I see the eventual release.

In my previous post, I made a great deal of waffle about having a bash at a 28mm scale fantasy army or sorts and must admit that I have had lots of ideas as to the sort of force I want to put together but the problem being is I currently can't settle on just what I want so I am going to spend today pondering over and developing a few ideas and then post them up on my blog here with a bit of a poll to see what you folks think!

Till then, all the best!


  1. Your life as a hobby butterfly eh? Well your own sculpts look erm.. Cute! :D

  2. They all look great, but my favourite of the bunch had to be Valtos. Man, would he have a hard time drinking through a straw!! :)

    If I were you, and I had your talent to sculpt, then I'd just be pumping out these guys....making up my own forces. You've really got the nack for it :)
