Its not as bad as it looks!

Okay so I've not updated things for a while but its not as bad as it looks. I have completed a nice units of dwarf infantry (pending photography) and also some more Mantic elves.

I was working well on the dwarves when I decided that I wanted to go to the Battlemasters tournament in Loughborough in October. My warm up games against Daniel suggested that I would need to make some changes to my list and I added another Drakon rider and two more bolt throwers.And here they are:-

I like the way the Drakon has turned out in red and I might need to add a few more highlights to my original drakon unit to match the effect I got with this one. There are three more drakons on the workbench and then hopefully its back to painting dwarves.

In other news I have now magnabased my Orcs and Goblins. I might do a posting about that one at some point.

Hmmm. I'm interested in what you used and how to do the O's and G's.

I finally got a gobbo/squig horde stuck together, and have it in mind that they should be magetised to their movement trays in order to make setting up a game easy.

Small magnets from Guy's Magnets, Ferrous sheeting from Tiny Worlds Wargaming and some magnetic tape. I'll do a full list of materials in a blog post at some point.

More, what did you use to attach the magnets to the bases, so they sit square?

I gotta write something of my own. I started a series of articles about basing, had several just in need of some finishing touches, and only got one actually finished and posted. It's been an interesting summer/autumn, in the old Chinese curse type of "interesting"...

That will require some words and pictures. I'll get round to it soon.

On the subject of basing Dan's been asking about just that over on the Mantic forum.

May you live in interesting times and come to the attention of important people. Shudder.

Hope things are improving.
