6mm Dark age coming soon from Baccus

Just read the news section on the Baccus site and looks like they will be producing some Viking, Saxons and Normans soon Hmm? I Must say I normally wouldn't look at doing any of those in the grand scale but with further consideration 6mm Normans could be being ordered.

Total battle Miniatures.

I saw a 15mm scale display by these chaps a few years ago and to be honest Ive not seen better since. Now they've started producing for the 6mm and 10mm market so I'm sure they will be worth a look.Ive added the link to the list.

Diorama. Siege of Jerusalem

Put this together and painted about two years ago,but as Gripping Beast and Musketeer are now together I thought Id post these. Crusaders and Siege Tower are from the Beasties and the Arab type chaps are from Musketeer.

Medieval German Command Stand..

Here's the start of a new 10mm Warmaster project.I'm going to put together a Medieval German Army.I will use the Barbarossa list from the book,its a little early for what I want but its usable. I'm going to use the Medieval range from TB Line, this will be the first time Ive used their Figs. I must admit these seem to be the best on the market at the moment a little fiddly to put together as the Cavalry come in three parts(Rider,Shield and Horse)but they are a fantastic figure to look at and paint. Ive not yet bought the remainder of the army (I got these Figs from VVV) so I'm not sure what the service from Italy will be but will let you know when I do.Well Ive gone on enough so here's the latest..Figures are TB LINE, Transfers are VVV, Banner is FREEZYWATER(painted over). Sorry about the quality of the photos,a new camera needed, so as always click to enlarge.

DBA...As good as its always been.

Many years ago my Historical gaming started with DBA which I played none stop for at least two years, then off I went to discover all the other various rules sets and there(as you know) lots of good rules out there,Recently seeing Yorkies (steves) blog reports using DBA I thought hmm? I Could use my Impetus and warmaster armies for some quick war gaming. And you know...Its still a great game and as the introduction says ..."a tonic for the jaded..." And with possibly a new addition on the horizon things are looking up.. so hopefully there will be some DBA reports coming up in the next few weeks :-)

More Pendraken Tents.

Here's a few more photos of the progress my Medieval camp using Pendraken 10mm tents,as before transfers are from VVV.Next I will add some wagons and some sort of field defence.

10mm Pendraken Medieval Camps.

I bought some Pendraken Medieval tents a while ago and with the thought of using camps in Warmaster Medieval (using house rules).This week I decided to put some paint on them, here's the first two.The heraldry isn't from any retinue or knight.I hand painted the Ermine on the smaller tent and the Fleur de lis are transfers from VVV medieval ranges.Trees and tree stumps are from Wood land scenics. (as always with the 10mm scale photos click to enlarge)
