28mm – Confrontation Age of Rag’Narok stuff

I’ve had some time to go through the loot I picked up from Ludik Bazar’s clearance sale and overall I’m very happy with my Wolfen – they were ridiculously cheap per model (somewhere around 25p or so) and while the mass produced paintjobs aren’t great, they look surprisingly OK from a distance. At least those from the unit boxes do. The models from the army box are much, much worse – effectively they’ve only been primed, albeit in a couple of colours.

I plan on painting up a couple of models in the future to see how I like them, but I mainly got these guys so I’d have a mass of 28mm fantasy miniatures if I ever felt like playing something in that scale/setting – probably a skirmish level game since the scale is much larger than I’m used to.

Loot!

I made an order on French site Ludik Bazar a little while ago for a whole load of Rackham Confrontation stuff on clearance – deep, deep discounts. It arrived today in a huge box, along with a Heavy Gear Blitz (tactical era) Mammoth Strider.

This is one of the largest parcels I’ve ever received and I’m excited about my loot so I thought I’d share!

28mm – Spartacus Board Game: Hammer Gladiator

I have recently purchased the board game Spartacus: A Game of Blood and Treachery and its two expansions; The Serpents and the Wolf and The Shadow of Death.

The games come with some fairly nice 28mm (I think) scale gladiators made of what appears to be some sort of PVC mix. I decided to paint them – I have had absolutely no prior experience painting human fleshtones or historical figures, but I was relatively confident I could get them up to an OK standard for a boardgame.

Because I’m new to this I didn’t want to start with one of my favourite models, so I picked the chap with a hammer from the Serpents and the Wolf expansion. I reckon he turned out pretty good for a first effort!
