Projects for 2019!

Hello all mates,

9 months have passed since I started this blog, In these months I have been posting miniatures painted by me, either recently or in the past few years.  In 2018 I have painted 77 miniatures (horses included)  in 28mm scale, plus scenery and some vehicles in various scales... (compared to 68 painted in 2017) This year I will try to beat my record!

What can you expect from this blog in the next months?  Well, I have several "active" projects (and several inactive too !) So here you have a little preview of what is going to come.


HISTORICAL

- I will finish a Spanish Tercio, the "old Yellows", Tercio Amarillos Viejos or Tercio of Burgos, so my late XVII century army will be expanded.

- I want to base a couple of units painted for me by the very talented Toby, from Artmaster Studio;  The French Guards/Gardes Fran├žaises (circa 1667-1680) and the Spanish Trozo de Extremadura/  Extremadura cavalry "regiment".

- Base and make "playable" my 30 years war armies, Spanish and Protestants.

- Weather my (half painted) Stalingrad Flames of War German Panzers! (I go to Stalingrad this summer, so my "hype" is increasing!

- Start painting any unit for the "War of Devolution" 1667-68 project, although I have already some valid units for this project. I want French King's Musketeers, more Spanish horse and foot for 1660', French/Scottish Dillon's Regiment, etc...

- Maybe starting a Portuguese army for their Restoration or Independence War, painting command groups for my existing TYW units with interesting English regiments from their Restoration period.

-Post more pics from my Late Roman and Sassanid Persian armies, and expanding them.

-this is an open list, probably I will add a high number of random posts of historical miniatures!­čśë

-Byzantines ??? When Aventine Miniatures decide to sell them, I definitely will buy them for my Army of Belisarius !



FANTASY


-Continue with my Warhammer Empire army:  War Wagon, Knights, Pistoliers, more infantry...

-Start an Oldhammer Orcs & Goblins army

-continue painting Warhammer Quest miniatures.

- Mordheim: finish my Reikland Warband, and start a new one!

-Painting more scenery (Tabletopworld!!) and scrachtbuilt.

-Warmaster 10mm miniatures? I had enough miniatures for at least an army of Orcs, and some Empire troops...

Old school Greenskins (WH/ Warhammer Quest)

Hello everyone, I am still in a "fantasy mood", I have played two games of Warhammer Quest and frankly, It was veeeeery fun, we played with the role playing rules and we liked it a lot. So I have painted some examples of Orcs and Goblins for 2 purposes; Playing  Warhammer Quest with painted miniatures, and besides, starting an Orcs & Goblins army ( 5th or 6th edition).

In the previous post you saw one of my heroes, the Wizard, and now some of the evil guys. I have used early 90' plastics, some of them included with the boxed game, but I am collecting more miniatures, metal ones from the same period.

´ere we go!

Non GW orc, this is a Black Tree 28mm Orc, good value and nice miniatures.


My orc "army" So far... they will become an army, I hope, and a Mordheim band too !

Warhammer Empire update!

Hello guys,

I bring here some updates from my Empire army, I have been busy painting some fantasy stuff, and I managed to finish half regiment of Reiksguard foot knights, the other half is just primed in black, including command. I also painted a Grey Wizard from Warhammer Quest, who will be used as my battle wizard in my Empire force. Apart from that, nowadays I am building the Empire War Wagon, but its crew is in bare metal yet... so no War Wagon pics for now.  







And the Reiksguard!

5 finished, 5 more to go ! The shiny armour was airbrushed, and then washed, and finally highlighted with brush. And the shields were painted with airbrush, then satin varnished, I used old Citadel  Undead skull decals, I painted over the decals and added some letters inside the painted parchments (I am a really bad free hand design painter...).









I want to include a veeeeery old Steam Tank here.  In this blog there are pics of my other Steam Tank, the "Conqueror" in metal, from year 2001 I think...  Well, this one is the oldest of all Steam Tanks ever produced by Games Workshop. I painted it with Airbrush, oils and different acrylics by brush (Citadel, Vallejo...)

I hope you like it
