Raising my own Horde


Recently found boxes of old Warhammer fantasy figures and figured they could be made into a HOTT army. Making the army and painting the figures will be a welcome break after a very hectic month of work. Mosty would need a bit of repainting but nothing straight from scratch. Going will be slow though since I haven't started filming at work yet. The past month has been a whirlwind of concept designs, storyboards, animatics and campaign pitches. I'm making it a point though to devote at least an hour a night to making a matched pair of armies together with a tank I'm building at the same time. My Middle Earth Orcs are on hold since they're already in the painting stage and my very much reduced free time wont leave much for painting them en masse. I do hope to finish them soon together with the other stuff that's been put on stasis.

  1. Sounds cool! I've started rebasing some older figures (I started doing a Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula army) for future games of HOTT. Nothing beats those rules!

  2. I have been repainting loads of my old minis and basing them for Hordes. I will hopefully have a dwarf army and an orc/goblin army ready soon.

  3. I've been reading a lot of good things about HotT and am excited to try it out.

  4. @ Atom Kid: Yup, HOTT looks very promising:)

    @ Little Odo: what scale are you using?

  5. Hello, I'm very amazed with your collection of miniatures.

    I just wanna ask, where do you buy these figures?

  6. Hi allen,

    I usually buy online but only at some sellers, mainly Hannants UK for my plastics. I also trade with other collectors locally and abroad.:)

1/72 Numidians

I've been nursing a bum foot since Sunday and worked on these during the afternoons. While casually surfing for horse references, I discovered a new, exciting and tremendously complex thing -- Equine Color!  Ever since I was given a book written by Sheperd Paine with a chapter on horses, I was intrigued. Only when I attempted to do research on the Numidian horsemen & their mounts did I realize how complex horse color is. Presented here are a few work-in-progress pictures. I still have a lot of touchups to do as well as texturing the bases and flocking until I can call this done. But for idly playing with them while making moronic hoofbeat sounds, they pretty much suffice. I'm pretty happy about the way the greys and the bays turned out but I'm still at a loss how to do really red chestnuts. Among the pictures, you'll find a sample of a really badly-done attempt at a chestnut with a really red coat & mane.  I may post an article here soon about the information

Grasslands Battle Boards

I finished painting these19"x 26" battle boards and tested them out with my 1:72 Celtic army. Layed out together, the painted surface covers 38" x 26" - good enough for games such as Mighty Armies or A Song of Blades and Heroes.
