28mm – Reaper Bones & Warlord Games – KoW Kingdoms of Men – General on Winged Beast

To end for today, a work i ended a couple of months ago, but never found time to take pictures. It’s a Reaper bones dragon, over a LOTR ruins reworked, raided by a Warlord Games cavalry man from their ECW range. Most of the work here was done by airbrush, except final lights and shadows and the rider figure.
He’s part of KoW army, kingdoms of men, in fact, he is the general of the army. Hope he will perform well in the battle.
I enjoyed a lot doing this, first of all, because it’s for me and not commissioned, second because it’s another try to improve my airbrush usage, and last one because i like it, and like how dangerous can be on a KoW battle.
The Reaper dragon it’s a nice piece, cheap, very cheap for his size.

28mm – Warlord Games – Imperial Tercio

Not much to say about the warlord figures, is not the first time i paint them, but this is the large number i have painted at once. Included with the well know plastic figures there is a blister of metal armoured pike men.
I tried to paint them in dark colours, without any concession to fashion and light colours, trying to depict a “poor” Sapanish tercio for the late Thirty Years War period.

Paper flags are from Wallenstein’s Imperial Army range by Battle Flag, this time are from Flags of War, who haves a nice range for this and other periods, and a very good quality.

28mm – Gripping Beast – Antigonid Companion Command (Polemarch Successors)

It have been a while since i painted more Macedonian successors, which can be viewed here.
This time i received only three mounted figures, by Gripping Beast, depicting a Polemarch command, Antigonid, but who can be used as part of any of the numerous successors kingdoms.
I did an error and mixed here some horses which are from the Carthaginian command painted at the same time.

28mm – Gripping Beast & Crusader Miniatures – Carthaginian reinforcements.

To reinforce the Carthaginian army of my client, i was commissioned to paint a few generals plus an elephant with some extra crews for other elephants. Between the generals, the most famous one, Hannibal, is included. Those miniatures are by Gripping beast, while the elephant and the crew are by Crusader.
All figures are correct, but some of the horses are poor, very poor. Also mount the elephant, two valves of metal plus tower, all metal, was a bit of pain. Included in the elephant base there is a dead roman soldier, it’s a small resin piece, not sure which is the manufacturer.
All the elephant’s crew have been magnetized with a neodymium magnet, as well as the raider. In the base of the tower there is a metal plate, and hidden under the driver’s place, another neodymium magnet. Overall painted by brush, except the elephant who got a couple of coats by airbrush.
