Warhammer Quest Plastic Halfling

The last (for now) of my one-piece plastic painting splurge is the halfling. Lovely characterful liottle model.

And here's a group shot. Ready for some classic dungeon bashing. Just need a Wizard...

Warhammer Quest Plastic Dwarf

Another of the simple one piece plastics from the Warhammer Quest game (though this one actually came from a toy box repackaging rather than the game itself).

Not sure why his cloak is shiny, it isn't in real life.
Mainly beard this model, bit boring to paint if I'm honest.

Warhammer Quest Plastic Elf

I have a couple of the small toy boxes of plastic models that were mostly for the Warhammer Quest game.
I quite like them, they're chunky and unfussy and paint up quite well.

Did this one as an classic Elf Ranger type.
Classic Goblin Green base edges, obviously.

Warlord Games' Plastic French Lancers

These are for Black Powder, Sharp Practice or Song of Drums and Shakos. Need to add the leader and trumpeter to make them eight strong.

They were given to me for my birthday a year ago, which is nice. They went together very easily - the horses in particular whilst less dynamic than Perry ones went together with far less filling and filing than the plastic Perry horses need.

There's only two bodies and two lance arms, and one of the lances is carried across the body. I wanted them all erect, so had to do a little chopping of one of the sword arms. I suppose I could have just used the sword arms, but these are lancers, the clue's in the name.
Painting was pretty easy, though obviously a bit of a faff because Napoleonics.

Pretty nice kit and if I get a single sprue I should be able to make 2 units of eight, which is about two more units than I really need, but what the heck.

40K again

Once more the Gaming Heir and I got the 40K toys out.
Can you guess what the result was?

The Nobs and warboss were shot to pieces by the Primaris marines with the dandy Plasma Rifle thingies.

Cover is, to all intents and purposes useless in 40K.
A +1 save you say? Why thank you?
What's the save modifier on that weapon?
I'll just put all these back in the box then, shall I?

At least this time the ladz and the Dredd got into combat and killed a dreadnought.

OGAM in the Gaming Hut

I took the OGAM collection over to the Ilko Gaming hut to give the chaps a taste of mythical Greek action.
General B took Poseidon and Steve had Hermes.
It's been a week and I've forgotten most of it. i was quite busy trying to remember the rules and flicking back and forth and so didn't take many pictures either.

Hermes was killed by a centaur early doors (he was revived) and Steve found out (as I tend to) that Hermes is quite hard to use. Though he got the hang of him by the end.

 Peaceful, mythical Greece.

 Spartans. Nekkid as the Gods intended

 Dressed Greeks

 Poseidon prepares to prod the Brass Bull in the Brass Bullocks

None shall pass!

The early death of Hermes caused quite a bit of panic and rather too much of Steve's army fled the table. He did his best to claw things back but in the end Poseidon was triumphant.

It was a fun little game. Lacking much nuance - mainly due to me failing to explain the rules properly.
I do like OGAM though.
