News, Updates & ramblings

This Blog is acting as the news and updates page for my new website,

The website itself is the archive of my painting through the last decade or more, with easy navigation around what now amounts to over 3000 images of wargames figures & display miniatures.

It is also the repository for my musings, workbench notes and reports on all things gaming and miniature painting that I get up to.

I've been collecting miniatures for 24 years and have covered most scales, periods and styles in that time. Don't expect consistency on one project here - there will be variety in project, but hopefully consistently high standards!

Thanks for reading!

Back to the core of the fubarnii empire....

The core of the fubarnii empire gets reinforcements.... 

Please excuse the weird looking rds - ipad photos rather than my usual hobbybrush rig - it doesn't like reds :( 

Militia captain. 

Slingers and Ryhad 

Mounted slingers / light cavalry and mounted herder Ryhad. Some of my favourites to date. 


  1. The mounted herders look great!
    I wonder why didn't you continue to use red for all of them though?

  2. Thanks Wouter!
    On both the foot and mounted herders, it's only those with a cloak / coif which carry the red. The other mounted models have their hoods integral to the main part of their clothing, and it would be overly powerful to do the whole thing red. Whether it's the mark of a reservist, veteran or simply one who lives within the town borders rather than in the wilds, I don't know ( haven't decided) but it's enough on the table to tie them unit to the rest of the main militia while keeping them distinctly more rural looking individually. :)
