  • Also over on my hobby blog I discuss my addition of some dwarf heroes to my 9th Age army. Not the sort of looking heroes you would normally expect, but heroes nonetheless! Stone, Water, and War: My adventures in terrain and miniatures <a data-flickr-embed=48562554306_7c13b152bf_k.jpg">

  • Hello my 9th Age friends. A bit of a shorter post here to follow up my Hold Guardians project. At the same time I was working on the specialized units for my dwarf army, I also tasked myself with adding some hero characters to my army lists. The thing about dwarf hero characters is that that are most often (and quite rightly so) portrayed with the classic Trollslayer-type models of GW fame or something akin to it. You know, the shirtless and nearly naked berserker dwarves with the orange mohawks…

  • Hello my fellow dwarf lovers! Over on my hobby blog I discuss my efforts to finally bring a unit of proper Hold Guardians into my dwarf army. I was determined to make a unit that would fit on the regulation 40mm x 40mm bases but that ALSO would be on a truly spectacularly giant scale! In the end it was Reaper Bones that gave me what I wanted! Three Fire Giants painted up like stone statues, models that would tower over the battlefield and even rival the size of giant units like The Sylvan Elves …

  • Over on my hobby blog I chronicle my efforts to bring a unit of Hold Guardians to the tabletop. I wanted to field a unit of them that did justice to the idea of them being giant, magically animated stone soldiers infused with powers that come from the mountains themselves. Even though they are classified as merely "large infantry" I was determined to make my own unit on a scale that was a bit more substantial. Stone, Water, and War: My adventures in terrain and miniatures In the end I found some…

  • Hello my 9th Age friends! Been a while since I've posted anything in my hobby blog, but finally I have several new projects that I am able to report on. I wanted to preface this blog post by thanking Jirga and his inspiring work he does over on his hobby blog! In particular his work in using larger models in his armies, even historical models and models from mythology that many gamers would not consider when building an army. Because of Jirga I was inspired and had the courage to try to use alte…

    Quote from jirga: “UD army is slowly taking shape. g8BdFIx.jpg Second colossus. I decided to glue his helmet on after I've painted him. Going to try osl light shining from his eyes so it's better to paint first without the helmet and then add light to the helmet afterwards. Chopped his left arm too to show some battle damage and differentiate him from the other colossus. He's a statue after all. r9qFPZw.jpg Battle Sphinx. 28mm Nomarch on foot to illustrate the size. 0dINwiP.jpg Assembled remaini…

    Quote from Kanadian: “And the Dark Coach first cast 65587489_2433019126737989_4131071391229280256_n.jpg ” I actually like that it's in a still pose instead of the usual GW-style crazy running at full speed poses. I think it makes it more creepy and atmospheric to have it standing still. I like it!

  • Quote from Theorox: “The finished halberdiers look awesome! A unit to be proud of. Theo ” Thanks!

  • Quote from Lich King: “Absolutely fantastic! Though - I've been thinking a lot about what was bothering me here. And finally - it is the soldiers skin tone! They're looking a bit too brownish for troops marching through snow plains. ” Interesting you mention the skin tone. It's actually my phone's wonky camera! Sometimes it washes out certain parts of a photo and if the lighting is not ideal it has trouble preserving original color. In person the faces are much lighter and actually on the pinkis…

  • Hello my fellow Empire lovers! Over on my hobby blog I posted the final installment of my winter-themed Empire battalion project. I designated the unit the "XVIII Halberdiers Battalion". I created them to be a part of the narrative I wrote for The Battle of Frosthollow Pass battle report last year. I will be posting more pictures of the battalion in a full, winter terrain tabletop setting. I will also be writing some additional narrative for the battalion in the form of diary and journal account…

  • Hello my friends! The winter battalion is complete! As you know from previous posts, this was a project that involved taking historical plastics and combining them with fantasy heads and other bits to create an Empire battalion on winter campaign. I had initially said that I was only going to make one winter-themed unit. But after seeing how well these turned out, I'm afraid that I may have to do an entire EOS army in this theme! I truly was amazed at how well the fantasy heads blended with the …

  • I personally feel that KOE should have access to some form of giant so that they had a choice in the monster category. Kind of like the theme of Empire Ogres serving in an Empire army, etc. I think it would fit the lore fairly well. It's not hard to imagine that KOE could influence and persuade a giant to fight for them in exchange for some kind of reward or benefit. Not quite a mercenary but also certainly not a slave. More like convinced to fight for their side based on the quality of the rewa…

  • Quote from Klexe: “Still better then a goth chick in leather costume with a chain mail BH fighting a dragon and making the heavy metal sign ” OH, I like goth chicks in leather and chain mail!...but for different reasons.

  • Guys...this is simply spectacular!!! LOVE this, we need more of this kind of inspiring stuff to keep the 9th Age world alive! Fantastic work fellows.

  • Quote from Porw: “That's a terrible idea...why don't you use modern troops as heavy infantry, at least they are wearing body armour & helmets or use space marines as imperial guard. ” Well, mainly because 9th Age isn't a sci-fi game. Modern infantry body armor would not look right, you'd have to trim off way too many other modern bits and you'd end up with Space Marines carrying halberds and spears. The idea behind using 18th and early 19th Century plastic bodies is that the 9th Age deals with a…

  • Quote from kisanis: “But will it work for my 15mm AWI stuff? I’ll probably buy some to do my Roman project whenever that happens ” You read my mind. I'm about to do 6mm AWI and these are going to be a Godsend! I have one of the right red Contrasts which will be perfect for British and then the browns and blues will take care of the Continentals. I'm betting that for 6mm and even 15mm one pot of red or brown will easily do most of an AWI army with plenty left over. I used one of the flesh ones on…
