Bit of specialist games today with some MAN O'WAR, specifically the flyers that came out with the SEA OF BLOOD expansion. Page 15 of the 1994 Citadel Catalogue shows the range of airborne units sculpted by Michael Perry and Norman Swales (who did many of the ships for Man O'War but not much else for Games Workshop). Getting a lot of detail into metal miniatures at this scale back in the early nineties was not an easy task and the models have not stood the test of time overly well. Many of the flying beasts were scaled down representations of models that existed in their respective WFB army lists but the Dwarf machines were brand new and had more in common with the kind of vehicle seen in Squat Epic forces than anything in the Dwarf Amry at the time. Briefly reimagined as the flop that was Dreadfleet released in 2011, there has been no mention of revisiting this concept in the range of specialist games being rereleased recently and with the change from WFB to AOS it is likely we will never see another warhammer Naval combat game.
Look what I found while trying to find my old lead scouts! This bad boy goes way back to 1989-1990. Before they even made big enough round bases, lol. I have one in pieces. Looks like he might be done before the old scouts. #oldhammer#oldhammer40k#citadelpaints#paintingwarhammer
Not much done this weekend, still grasping at motivation. These two Age Of Sigmar units needed different bases to bring them in line for matched play, so, after tracking down enough spares, the clipping of tabs and trimming of leftover bits started. Ten Spireguard and ten Swordmasters of Heoth for my small High Aelf band (also from the Isle Of Blood starter set from 8th edition Warhammer fantasy). They were mounted on 20mm rounds but got an upgrade to 25mm round bases. Now, to decide on what texture to put on these new bases. #highelves#oldhammer#wargaming#ageofsigmar
