I have had this Rackham Giant for quite a few years, languishing in the Loft Full Of Lead in nothing more than undercoat. My Dragon Rampant Dwarf army needed something a bit less stout and a giant fits that role rather well.
Plenty of brass used again along with Iron Grey for the helmet, gauntlets and boots.
Fortunately, I only needed four of these stout chaps to finish off a twelve Dwarf infantry unit for my Dragon Rampant army.
I did not think I had enough to make a full 24 point army, but when I started getting them all in one place, I realised I had plenty.
These old Rackham Thermo Warriors are more reinforcements for the Tir-Na-Bor Dwarf Dragon Rampant army.
The paint jobs on these definitely fall in to my Bronze period. I seem to be painting everything with at least a little bronze somewhere.
For a week or so in May, the Dragon Rampant group on Fakebook ran a painting challenge, which was to simply pick a few models and get them done in seven days. A bit of encouragement like that always helps me to get my butt in gear, so I decided to actually finish of a few old Rackham Tir-Na-Bor dwarfs to bring my Dragon Rampant units up to twelve models in each.
First up I painted six Boors to add to the six I was already using in Frostgrave.
Army Painter Strong Tone is then lavishly applied to the block painted models and the job is done.
Twelve of these make a four point Belicose foot unit for Dragon Rampant.
This is the first GW model I have seen in ages that I could be persuaded to purchase, especially with my steampunk fixation still running high. I say “could”, as at £50 (US$80) it is a significant amount of cash.
It should be available with 10% off from an independent reseller, which would make it £45.
Unfortunately I do not remember who made this rather nice treeman. I bought it just because I liked the model and thought it was a nice change from the the usual Games Workshop treeman, and a damn sight bigger.
It now gets used in my Dragon Rampant Treefolk warband.
After several games of Dragon Rampant, I really thought it was time to have a game that actually includes a Dragon.
This is another of those models that has been kicking around in the Loft Full Of Lead for many years. I think my girls persuaded me to buy it when they accompanied me on a trip to a wargames store.
This is a Reaper Dragon that I originally undercoated black and then decided I wanted it in a much lighter final colour. I also noticed on the underside of the base that it is a Bob Olley sculpt.
Just before the weather got really cold and damp, I managed to get it resprayed in white and then did a quick green paint job so it will fit with the rest of the Treefolk warband.
It will get its first outing tonight!
