It seems a long time since I had chance to update this page. Apologies.
Anyway, there’s quite a few models I’ve had chance to take photos of today and upload. A real mix of Fantasy and World War 2. I guess Sci-fi’s been on the back burner. But it will return as I received my 2 boxes of Maelstrom’s Edge models recently.
Anyway, here’s the things I’ve been working on.
These are Mantic’s hefty metal models. They went together fairly well. At first I didn’t like the way I’d painted them, but the scheme grew on me.
Although I try to avoid paying GW prices. The starter sets they just brought out are reasonable value – even better if bought online with a 20% discount. I bought the Seraphon (sorry, Lizardmen!!!) set. Here’s the first 4 Saurus warriors I’ve painted. They’re on homemade bases, made of mdf (with magnets drilled in) and green stuff (and a good Basius mould).
The Lizardmen are going to be a Salamander ally for the Dwarf army I have yet to paint for Kings of War.
And finally, a big mix of World War 2 models.
I finally got round to finishing the drivers and gunners for the Jeeps I’d made. Both gunners are magnetised, as are the gunners. It means I can use them as empty looking Transports, or add MMG/HMGs.
I bought a platoon of armoured cars from Warlord Games when they released them. I’ve just got round to finishing the paint jobs. They are plastic kits and went together real well – as all plastic Warlord stuff does. I built one as an M8 Greyhound and one as an M20 Scout Car. The 3rd is still intact on sprues awaiting whatever fate I have for it.

I also finished the last 3 US infantry for one of my units. I say finished, but I think I’ll put the same arm badges on as I did to the Jeep above. It will take a while to get round to that though. That’s for Bolt Action, but for Iron Cross, as the units are small blocks of 4-5 Infantry, I made up (about 16, lol) movement trays to make the game quicker. Some 2×2 and some 4×1.
Bases for Iron Cross
And that about sums up the last 6 weeks or so.
Fingers crossed I get the next update out before that long has passed.
