Saga Order of St John – Knights

I have pulled the trigger and finished off my Saga Order of St John – Knights, with two units of Hearthguard (Knights) and command.  As I write this I realise I am basing this whole force all wrong. I know I built this as a saga force, which with out

Flames of War StuGs – My first PSC Experience

I have gotta admit – this has been a VERY long term project. Like all others, it started with some enthusiasm, but after some early progress, interest waned and the whole tray of StuGs sat on the shelf gathering dust. Assembly and painting began back in April 2013 (Yes –

Homemade Foam Miniature Storage

I recently dusted off my big old box of BattleTech miniatures and opened it to find an assortment of miniatures I had collected over the years, some painted, some partially assembled, but most of them still in their original blister packs. If I was going to assemble, paint, and take

Making Graves

Who doesn’t like a graveyard setting in their favourite fantasy skirmish game?! I certainly do, so I went about making a few for my current favourite games of Frostgrave and Kings of War: Vanguard. My first step was to find some plastic kit grave stones, since it takes more skill

That Battletech project I have been putting off

When I first got into Battletech, I really struggled with a paint scheme to do the miniatures justice. I tried some camouflage schemes and some of the complex traditional Inner Sphere liveries as well. Camouflage seemed a little pointless with giant nuclear robots crashing through the forest in the universe of

Battletech Clan Ghost Bear Decals

I am pretty sure that my eye sight was a lot better and my hands were a lot steadier when I painted my first batch of Battletech Clan mechs about twenty years ago. I have always enjoyed putting 3025 era Battlemechs on the table & most of my effort had

Templar Infantry

Finally some Temmplars. I think I’ve done quite well. More than 5 posts into a Templar project and not a single white tunic or red cross on anything. But that’s all going to change over the next few posts as I finish off this project with wall to wall, hard

Innersphere Mechs Part 1

With Battletech being still in favor, I had a look at how many Mechs I had. It turns out I have a lot of Mechs, more Clan then Innersphere I thought. That may not be the case, so here in my Innersphere Part 1 I am going to go through

Crusader Turcopoles

Another feature of Crusader armies were the Turcopoles. The Crusaders had learnt the effectiveness of the mounted bow from the Saracens and so had started to include them in their own armies. Sourced from the Eastern Christian kingdoms, and I’m sure other relevantly skilled groups, they were still Christian by

Crusader mounted knights

I’ve finally added some Knights to the Crusader army. With over 130 troops painted it’s good to finally have something that we all associate strongly with the era. I’m not sure there’s anything more iconic to the Feudal/Medieval period than the Knight holding a lance atop a charging horse. Again,
