Stuff for Sale: Orcs, Skaven, Goblins, Beasties and a random Eldar

02/22/2015 Leave a comment

Following on from last week’s sale of Astra Militarum Bitz (which ends on Wednesday, bid now!) I’ve listed twelve more lots.  Like before the link above the photo will take you directly to the eBay auction and if you have any queries please contact me here or on eBay.  Now, without any further ado, we have:

Eldar Warlock

This model was from around 1990 and served me well when I ran Craftworld Eldar during the heady years of the second edition.  No idea why I never painted it.

Citadel Ogres

eBay - Citadel Ogres

I’m fairly sure these came with on of the Warhammer Quest expansions although they could be from Battle Masters or Hero Quest. My memory’s not what it was. Anyway, these are snap fit and have not been glued, so that’s something.

Warhammer Quest Minotaurs

These are the three plastic Minotaurs from Warhammer Quest.  These could be used in Beastmen or general Chaos armies.

Skaven Clanrats

I was half-tempted to hold onto these, but I really can't justify another army at the moment.

Orc Boyz

Some more refugees from the Warhammer Quest Box.  Great for bulking out existing squads.

Orc Arrer Boyz

I wasn't even aware that Orcs could shoot in Fantasy, they can barely shoot in 40K!

Orc Big’Uns

I don't believe that this unit exists in the current army book.  However I'm sure these gents could find a place in Orc or Black Orc units.

Goblin Spearmen

Taken mainly from the 4th ed Warhammer Fantasy box and the Warhammer Quest box, some of these were sort-of painted by my fourteen year old self and, as you can see, some are a wee bit damaged.  Also, I couldn't find enough bases for them all, but that shouldn't be a problem for even a half-experienced gamer :-)

Night Goblin Archers

Again, these are mainly from old starter boxes and, like the Goblin Spearmen, some of these have had my teenage painting prowess inflicted on them.  A couple also have broken bows but a bit of Green Stuff should fix them right up.

Night Goblins

A couple of random metal Night Goblins.  No idea where or when I bought these.

Night Goblin Fanatics

I love the concept of these guys.  Still no idea why I thought it would be right to paint one of their balls gold.

Night Goblin Squig Herders and a Squig Hopper

I love squigs but I'd never have time to paint them.  The larger squig came from a Warhammer Quest expansion box.

What I have planned for December

12/02/2013 Leave a comment

Please note, this is called what I have planned for December, what I actually end up doing is another matter entirely.

Right, now with that excuse proviso out of the way let’s get started.  Obviously there are important Real Life matters that annoyingly get in the way like moving house and the whole festive merry-go-round but I’m leaving those off this list and concentrating on the really important stuff.  So, in no particular order I aim to:

  • Complete painting my Imperial Bastion
  • Complete the last three mutated Chaos Space Marines
  • Complete the Khorne Berserker Rhino
  • Experiment with some knightly liveries for my Bretonnians
  • Finally finish building my Dark Eldar Ravager and Razorwing and get them basecoated
  • Paint a couple of Dark Angels to see how they look

See, not extensive and if I can get through a third of that I’ll be really happy.
