Clearing the painting table

Every so often I need to get the painting table cleared as it gets clutter with half started figures,undercoated figures etc that have sat there for too long. So today I cracked on to get some of thesr finished. 

First up is 5 more figures for my Angmarin army. They are based up as 2 unit leaders. 1 of the figures is an old Black tree Saxon from a long forgotten Viking shore raid I did as a demo at the Border Reiver show. 

The next batch are from Star Wars legion. Princess Leia and a squad of rebel troopers. I veered away from the film colour schemes for Leia and went for a more military look to help her match in to the rest of the army. 

The troopers are just a mixed bunch of figures I picked up as part of an EBay bundle. 

Now I just need to completed another 4 Angmarin, 4 WW2 Soviets and some FPW French Dragoons. The Prussian infantry regiment is nearly completed.

FPW Prussian IR#23

After what seems like an age, I finally completed another Prussian infantry regiment for the 12th Division of VI Corps. Like the rest of the Corps, the figures are all from Outpost miniatures and the flag is from Maverick Models.

After these there are just the remaining 2 infantry regiments to complete for 12th Division. I will be pleased to get these last 60 figures done. All that's left to do would be an extra horse artillery battery to complete my Cavalry division and I will be happy with the completion of VI Corps. I may even move onto a few french units later in the year.

Men of Angmar II

I completed another batch of infantry for my Angmarin force. This time 10 infantry and another designated unit leader. The figures are a mix of Gripping Beast Saxon Thegns with parts kitbashed from Warlord and Victrix to add some variety. There is 1 metal figure, an old Dacian I had in my spares box.

For my go to set for fantasy gaming, Dragon Rampant, I have a nicely growing force to serve the Witch King. 4 units of foot, a unit of cavalry and archers.

I've got another unit of cavalry awaiting basing. There are another 12 cavalry and 17 infantry to complete. I will then need to add some more fantastical stuff to the army.

Witch King of Angmar

Finally found a suitable model to lead my forces of Angmar. The Witch King himself. I do have the GW versions but not that happy with it. This model is from Reaper Miniatures and is described as a Cairn Wraith. I love the pose.

I used a mixed of black and black/green to add some highlights to the black robes. I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

I also added a couple of war dogs from Reaper and 4 more infantry. 3 are kitbashed plastics and the other is a Foundry Frank.

I already have a dog handler painted up for the war dogs. These are big and I'm tempted to add a few more. I've now got another batch of infantry to complete and another 6 cavalry to increase the unit size.
