Latest Arrival....The Big Fella

Well guess who just arrived in the post.....the World Famour Marauder giant that's who!! I have been scouring e-bay for over a year now for this guy and although there seem to be many of them floating around it can prove tough to snap them up at a decent price. I finally managed to snavel this one for the bargain price a mere twenty pounds so I think I have done alright here. This big fella combined with the odd ogre should give my wee fellas a lil more muscle and hitting power. Such a lovely scuplt and I hope to start painting him once I get the next two halfling units out of the way maybe some time late this year.

I'm also on the look out for the old grenadier goblin war giant if anyone notices one floating around at an affordable price?

Now to finish off the 95th Rifles and then I can begin work on the next halfling unit the patrons of the Bobbleshire Inn then closely followed by the mounted questing halflings....The Knights of The Kitchen Table. So many big plans so lil time.

Oh and I also won this old citadel space hobbit.....I have no idea what I am going to do with him although I do have around 10 different ratling scouts floating around somewhere collecting dust ha!

A Half Break

Well sometimes you can have too much of a good thing....so I decided to take a lil time out from my Halfling project and pay some tlc towards my long neglected British Napoleonic force and now I am currently working on a 24 man strong 95th Rifles force. Here are some shots of the first nine. I have experimented with a more liberal as apposed to a precise painting style and have also tried a different basing technique. The liberal style seems to have worked a treat and I'm extremely happy with the overall outcome thus far....I would almost go as far as saying it is probably my smoothest unit to date. The blacks and the greens are rather forgiving and make for a quickly painted unit especially compared to the red and white rad coats. I have based them in a way that they can fight as a rank and file unit as well as skirmish. Minis are perry plastics, metals and some offensive rifleman thrown in there as well for good measure. I found the metal Perry's very nice to paint as well.

What do you think? Should I stick to halflings or do some more Naps? I only have two boxes of British infantry, one box of highlanders, one Victrix Cannons and one box of Perry Hussars to paint.......
