I picked up this chap from a bits box at a wargames show many many years ago. He was only missing one arm, so I grafted on a GW Power Claw to finish him off.
With the “build your own” model option in Warzone, this guy will feature at some stage. In my No Limits Duat army, the model will be the commander.
The Loft Full Of Lead contains all sorts of goodies, including these Dark Age Models inspired by the art of Brom.
Not sure if all will make it into a Warzone army, a couple may just get used in the No Limits Duat army instead.
The figure in the foreground could work as Golgotha…
In all their (unpainted) glory, the whole of the Prussian Scrunt army from Bob Olley’s recent Kickstarter. It is the painting challenge ahead.
If only the weather would warm up a bit, I could get into the garage and undercoat them all. When there is too much dampness in the air, I find spray undercoating to be a risky business, models can end up looking very grainy.
It is getting serious now, the painting backlog is building up and now includes four Zeppelins for the Prussians, three steampunk tanks for the Brits and more Meridian infantry.
There are two command units for the Prussians, firstly, Kaiser Vilhem Fromage II and his two Generals (General der Infanterie and General der Artillerie) mulling over a map and deciding where to attack.
Secondly, is the Company Command unit with (left to right) Company standard, Unteroffizier and Feuerwerksoberleutnant.
There is plenty of artillery planned for the Prussians, so some Engineers are needed. A couple of Scrunts equipped with big wrenches for keeping things operating to peak Bravarian efficiency. There are also a couple of models carrying shells which will come in handy.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Let us hope that 2015 brings a little peace to the troubled parts of the world.
(and Happy Birthday to my little sister in Canada).
One of the Prussian Army Kickstarter stretch goals was for a unit of close combat assault models. All five of the models are different, three armed with chainswords and two with massive hammers. These are really nice models with a lot more detail on them compared to the standard infantryman.
Another models from the Kickstarter was a dog handler base with two eager Dachshund’s.
I think this will be best used as an extra medic with his supply dogs, something like that anyway.
There are plenty of heavy infantry support for the Prussian army. These models have breastplates which should look pretty good in brass or gold.
The first two models are armed with a small cannon, perhaps an anti-tank gun.
The two below look like they are armed with some sort of flamer weapon.
Machine gun support for infantry looks like this:
I seem to be spending all of my time putting models together and not actually painting them. I have started on the Prussian Scrunts. Fortunately, most are single part models so they just need basing.
All of the models have the heads molded on, which is different from how the Victorian Steampunk Scrunts were made. There are about 20 standard riflemen in all, you can never have too many infantry.
The casts are really clean and hardly need any work. Below is a medic and a spotter.
