15mm knights, billmen, and arquebusiers

 This week, I finished another 30 of the 15mm medieval figures from the Joan of Arc game. First up are 10 knights, nine with axes and one with a warhammer.

These scale pretty well with the various Battlelore heavies that I have. They also match alright with the Splintered Light fellows, although the Splintered Light benefit from a bit of extra height on their base.

I also painted up a unit of 10 arquebusiers. These were fun enough to paint and had nice detail.

And finally, I knocked of another unit of 10 billmen in the same livery.

Up next: A bunch more 15mm medieval figures and some more buildings.

Back in April, I picked up this firehall at the model railway swap meet. I think I paid $10?

It needed a bit of TLC, so I touched up the paint, fixed some broken pieces, and gave it a wash and gravelled the roof (which was a wreck of broken off pieces). Then I pulled out some Pulp Figures monsters to do a double date and here we are.

I'm pretty happy with this. I might add some graffiti decals if I get ambitious (and run across the water slides).

Up next: Some 15mm medievals.

25mm Star Wars Smugglers

One of the challenges of collecting old figures is that you end up with a lot of duplicates. This is great news if the duplicates are stormtroopers. Less so if the extras are named characters. How many Han Solos do you need? My solution is to paint up a bunch as generic smugglers for Xenos rampant units (probably as some kind of skirmishing light infantry).

I thought about breaking out some sculpting material to add hoods and capes and other details to mix up the look some. Then I decided it was just better to get them painted. Lots of Hans and Lukes, plus a Lando and the pilot from Jedi.

Up next: A bunch of 15mm knights, billman, and muskets.
