Renaissance Goblin and Halfling range on Kickstarter

For those of you who missed it, my former goblin and (slim) halfling range, as sculpted by Kevin Adams, is currently being kickstarted by the new owner for re-release under the Shortwars label.




Aside from bringing back the main range, the kickstarter includes several expansions of the range that I never got around to, such as archers, goblin cavalry and an all new range: renaissance beastlings! Renaissance trolls and ogres are also available. 

Only 6 days left and plenty of stretch goals to unlock, so get over there and pledge now!

Dwarf Knights of the Great Bear on Foot - Greens

It's been a while since there's been another update on the dwarfs, but John just sent me the final pictures for the next two sets: Dismounted Dwarf Knights of the Great Bear: 8 models including full command.

First, the Captain and Sergeant for the unit. I included the center pictures because they give a frontal look at the models, but note that the hammers on those were still WIP and final look is as shown on the left side of the image:


Standard Bearer and musician:


4 full plated, fur cape wearing, hammerwielding helpings of dwarven wrath:


A closer look at the individual models:



I think John did a good job on these and they are the best of all the dwarven footknights we had done. They wouldn't look too out of place with the Ewal Dvergar either.

Human Witchhunter Greens, part 2

The (for now) final installment of the Witchhunter set, all sculpted by Mick Darpa in a deliberate 90's style. 

This band of witchhunters travel with a cleric for some moral and divine support. Of course, given the nature of their calling, it's a cleric of the God of Death, so the grim appearance and the skullfaced mask might not lift the group's morale much, but you can't have everything.



A minor update to the witchhunter with pistols from last time, in the form of the addition of a small dagger to the backside:

Mounted Human Knights Available

The mounted knights have been added tot the Getting Some section.

Mounted knights from different knightly orders, sculpted by FP. Note, due to the aim to keep these as modular as possible, these kits are only for advanced modelers and will require some filing and filling for optimal results, as well as the need to pin the feet to the base once you have combined the horse bodyparts into the desired position. This was unavoidable as different combinations lead to different angles for the legs.

A full set of 6 knights with all the options weighs in at around 500g, which accounts for the pricetag.

Human Witchhunter Greens

I've long wanted to get some Renaissance Witchhunters figures done, clad in heavy armour and with the iconic hats. The idea probably goes back to some conversions I saw several decades ago that left a general impression with me. The armoured dollies made for the footknight figures offered a good base to jump off from. All three models sculpted by Mick Darpa.

Witchhunter Captain With No Name. Very loosely based on the Man With No Name and a certain H.S., he loves his cigars almost as much as he loves the way a plan comes together. His heavy broadsword is the perfect tool for chopping up all manner of undead and witchbreed.


Witchhunter Pistolier. Because sometimes it's just nice to put some distance between you and the enemy.

Witchhunter specialising in vampire control. Armed with a warhammer and a set of wooden stakes. You don't want to run into him if you're a child of the night, especially with that neckguard protecting him from your bite.
