New Dane Axers and their Casualties

This one is a conversion using the now OOB War Factory Games arms, well not really sure what happened to War Factory Games, maybe Warlord bought them like they have bought others.
 Your stock kind of sucky pose from GBP.

 These casualties are pretty cool.  Most are Old Glory.
Blood, I actually paint the blood in your standard red colors.  After I clear and base the models then I hit all of the blood areas with the wicked alcohol based Tamiya clear red.  Stinky stuff.

 This one in the brown is a Gripping Beast hunk of metal.

As always much more to follow.

New Bersekers Finished.....

 For quite some time, my Vikings had the old Gripping Beast metal berserkers in it.  They are just really old and poor castings.  I had a whole bunch of Warlord Games barbarians and the Gripping Beast plastic Viking parts fit on those models quite well.
 As you can see, they make some cool looking lean fighting machines.
I've been really toying with the ideas of blood splatter in my pieces, so I did just that with this model.  He got splattered big time, with the techniques that I use in splattering pen and ink drawings, essentially a loaded tooth brush.

The effect is just landed on the front side of the model.

This one below is probably the most boring of the group, but still better than the old metal models.
I really like this one below.  I think he really looks pretty cool.

Be aware that the Warlord Games models are wee bit small for 28 mm when compared to say plastic Gripping Beast.  With Victrix Gauls on the horizon of being released, if you want cooler looking berserkers, that will probably be the kit for you.  
As always more to follow.....

More Archers firing at Poor Will Again

Here are the rest of my archers.  These are the Conquest Games plastic medieval archers with items and heads that I used to bring them back in time a bit more.  
Here is the where's Waldo question, can you locate the metal Gripping Beast Viking archer?
A bit closer up, please ignore the movement tray, its just a photo prop to help with quick picture taking. These in my opinion are definitely the best models from Conquest Games to date.  They paint up very easy, much better detail and undercuts than their previous lines of miniatures.  As you can also see, just a ton of head choices, some of which I will not use because they really did not fit the period that I wanted.
And below a pic of the back rank.  I'm happy with them.

More Mutant Marauders.....

 More of the mutant marauders.  These were the last group that I had done.  I still have a bunch more in primer that I will likely paint at some point.
I thought these turned out better than the previous batch that I painted in the big units.
 Lots of fun conversions.  They are up for sale on ebay at http://www.ebay.com/itm/332164935545?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

Chaos Marauders are Flailing......

I've shown portions of this unit before, but not in this configuration as some of the models have not been seen as part of a unit.

This was a fun unit to create, and I think it turned out well.
I'm keeping a few models from the Chaos Warriors army to use in Dragon Rampant and in Frostgrave as well.
 But as for Warhammer Fantasy, that time has ended.

If you like these models they are for sale:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/332164937327?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

The Cruasders get some attention

Its been awhile since this project has received any attention at all.  I had a bunch of Conquest Games Norman infantry that sat around for awhile.  I actually painted all of the metal areas on the models prior to having surgery, noted in the previous post, then finished off the color. 

So you're probably like, hey I've seen those before and they are all Perry metals.  Well the bulk of them are, but you need to look closer.
There are few plastic Normans in there, the sames models, most everyone say are junk.
Are they great models, no.  Do they work yes.
As always much more to follow.....
