The blog dedicated to the painting and collecting of Renaissance themed fantasy miniatures in the 28mm scale, including my own little private venture to commission specially made figures with that theme. The latter are not, at present, intended for a general release, but perhaps something can be arranged if you'd like a couple...
Getting Some Hors Série
The Abandoned Gatehouse
It's been ages since I painted anything for this project and when my lovely wife bought me a Lemax Halloween Gatehouse for my birthday, I knew I had to make this top of my list of things to rework into a wargaming model (you know, so I can still be entitled to get toys from her in the future).
As with most Lemax buildings, this had great potential but needed a little TLC to bring it up to the standards and to remove some of the out of scale bits that tend to feature on them. I'll go into that a bit more below, but first the pictures of the finished gatehouse, which I tried to paint in order to match my earlier buildings in this project.
Some Empire dwarfs are exploring the abandoned gatehouse. Looks like it hasn't been visited in a long while and small scavengers abound, but then who lit those torches? Figures added for scale.
