15mm Fantasy-Undead

Now this new army, these are my test bases are a new avenue for me on several fronts.  The figures themselves are 3D printed resign figures.  The design is Forest Dragon in the UK printed for me by a very nice man in France.  As I live in Portugal the shipping and tax costs from the UK are a little high at the moment. 

The figures themselves are great sculpts, up-sized from 10mm to 15mm.  The detail is fantastic and the poses are wonderful.  The figures I bought came in strips, which I regretted as as i tried to crop a few away I did have casualties, the horsemen are meant to have a standard bearer but he did not make it lol  Next time I will order individual prints which is a service that both Forest Dragon and my printer offer.

The second is the painting, I tried Games Workshop Contrast Paints for the first time.  The skeleton bone, black and most of the red are all Contrast.  To be honest when I first applied the paint I was not convinced but once the models were complete i think it works rather well and it did shorten the painting time.

The trial batch I ordered in full.  Basing will happen once I am home.

   Two main stays of the army Skeletal warriors and Reavers.  I left these on the strips with overlapping figures.  

Some Zombies in the foreground     


The Zombies in all their glory, the variety and animation is great.

Skeletal Knights...Great figures very 'alive'.  I have painted the barding and shields in Old Warhammer  World livery to represent resurrection of their former selves.

Wraiths....all in black and heavily armed! 

I must repeat these figures are stunning and I really enjoyed painting them.  Forest Dragon do so many great races and they are expanding....I am sure a lot more will fall into my collection.

Various 15mm

 Just a few bits that I picked at random from my lead mountain, yes I have a very large and varied lead mountain sat at work...

16 Desert Orcs, figures by Alternative Armies.  I have a good amount of these already painted and based and will show them in future posts.

1st Battalion Dalmatian Regiment of the Italian Army that joined Napoleon in the invasion of Russia in 1812

Two units of fantasy foot from the city state of Sterland. A unit of halbadiers and one of crossbowmen.

The figures are Blue Moon Italian Wars Swiss.

10mm Russian Seven Years War

 A little bit of variety for this post and a return to an old project.  I have added more Russian regiments to my collection based on the Russian army at the battle of Zorndorff.   

Below we have 220 infantrymen and 4 mounted generals.

All figures are from the great Pendraken range and flags were self printed, apart from the very bad grenadier ones which i had to hand paint, very badly lol
