Wargames Atlantic Pathans

The last of the box of Wargames Atlantic Afghans. Twelve more with firearms for games of The Men Who Would Be Kings.

Again mostly done with contrast paints and washes. A few more in darker colours than the last lot. There are more of the crouching figure in this group as I didn't want to use them for the more animated, charging Ghazis. I'll actually mix these in with the other unit with guns so it won't be quite so obvious.

One box gave 2x12 rifles and 1x16 with swords and shields - ideal for TMWWBK.

I've got the Perry set now, which are nicer figures, so I'll be cracking on with those in the New Year.

Hades for Of Gods and Mortals

 Another of the very jolly SHQ Miniatures Greek gods for use in games of Of Gods and Mortals.

Hades on his throne.

Just the fellow to lead my skeletons and shades to war.
Need a big old three headed dog now...

Ogre Kingdoms Giant

 Lockdown success - built and painted this big fella.

He had only been in the plastic heap for about fifteen years or so...

The lighting has left him a little washed out...

I built this as the Ogre Slave Giant version. I've already made the "Chaos" version and have another one to make as an Orc and Goblin one.

Contrast paint for the flesh - quick but I'm not sure it quite works at this scale. Face is good - the big bits of body are a bit blotchy.

There's plenty of blue and yellow (broken wheel, shield on his right army, bits of trouser) all there as trophies for when he goes in to action against Stephen's Nordland army.

Overall pretty happy with him.
