A blog about my wargaming in Middle-earth, the Old World and some other far away places across the void, with Grand Scale 10mm (and some 15mm) miniatures using the Warmaster, Blitzkrieg Commander, Cold War Commander, Future War Commander and GW's The War of the Ring (and some other ) rule systems. Oh, and there might be the odd post about roleplaying and board games here and there. So all the usual geeky stuff we are so proud of!
I'm slowly painting my way through the forces I'm going to use in my first battle using the Chaos Wars rules from Ral Partha / Iron Wind Metals. You can download the rules for free from the Ral Partha website here.
One of the units I finished over the weekend were the Skeletal Guards from the Iron Wind Metals web store (find them hereand here).
These lads will be forming the bodyguard of the Lich Lord who is raising The Silent Legion and wreaking havoc across the lands of the north (that's a hint to the background for the battle).
Group shot time, Lads!
These are dam fine mini's. Love the armour and the details. They just look like they mean business and are happy to deliver it too! They are going to make an appearance on the table top for my role playing group as well.

I bent some of the shield arms on a few of the mini's in order to give some variety to the look of the troops. It was a simple thing to do but provided a variety to the look of the unit.
I need a new bad guy nemesis for my role playing game group. Someone ominous. Who can, with his very presence on the table top, intimidate the players when they see how pitifully small their character's miniatures are when confronted by his mere presence. Enter stage right...
The Marklin in squadron with an ADB Hermes DD and a Studio Bergstom/Woomera Shipyards Arrow Class PC
Studio Bergstrom makes some excellent Star Fleet style miniatures. The FED Capricorn Survey vessel would be familiar to many a ST fan. It's similar to (OK, identical) the FASA Marklin Class of star ship from the 4 Years War era.
I recently finished painting up one and so I thought I would share it here.
She's a fine ship and well worth the buying. Solidly built and with lots of good details.
