A little Papa Nurgle for Lost in the Warp

As published in James Craig's Lost in the Warp Blog...

 A short while back I was approached by James Craig to join with in with Shawn Welte [The Madhouse Workshop] to do a crossover project involving Chaos Beastmen. I was honored to be asked by these two extremely talented hobbyists and agreed to donate a model to the "cause". I've known James for quite awhile and Shawn even longer (we're the "Grumpy Old Coots" in double tournaments).  Anyhooo...


James wanted a Nurgle Themed Beastmen and I just happened to have a Nurgle Minotaur conversion that was...

Mid-War Mittlere Panzerkompanie WIP | FOW

Got a little Hobby ADD going on right now. Matt JayJack and I are playing in a Mod-War FOW doubles event in Madison in Dec.  I will be playing a German (circa 1942ish) Panzerkompanie and Matt will be running Fins. Got all the models built, now to base and paint.  I will be able to expand this pretty easily to a full sized army if I want down the Road.

My list (1165 points)

HQ:
Panzer III N
Panzer IV F1

Combat Platoons:

3 Panzer III N

3 Panzer IV F2 ("specials")

Divisional Support:

Heavy Panzerspah Platoon (2 Sd Kfz 231 (8-rad))

Light AA Platoon (2 Sd Kfz 7/1 (Quad 2cm))

Matt will be bringing Finnish infantry and light tanks.

Medieval English | Muster the troops! [WAB]

Have finally assembled the figures for my Adepticon WAB singles army. I am rolling with Medieval English. I patterned the army after the British at Agincourt. The accuracy falls apart a little bit as I decided to build an allied unit of low-country pikemen.  The Jury is still out on them, I may build a unit of British spear or halberdmen instead to make the army more cohesive (and more accurate...)

I used Perry Bros for the army.  They are gorgeous and very dynamic. Bases are magnetic and made by Shogun Miniatures , they will make custom bases and movement trays at a very reasonable cost with a quick turnaround time. For example, I based all the archers on 20mmX30mm bases to depict open order.

Army List [as it stands now]:

Gen/ASB

16 Dismounted Knights [+Gen/ASB]
18 Dismounted Knights

18 Seasoned Archers [Stubborn|Stakes]
18 Seasoned Archers [Stubborn|Stakes]
18 Seasoned Archers [Stubborn|Stakes]
16 Archers

24 Low Country Pike

Thats a lot of lead...

Love the Perrys...



BTW, sorry for lack of posts. Been busy with work and working on terrain [building trees, etc. for the WAB at WaaghPaca tournament in Jan]. 

Thanks for looking
