Antares Boromites - Review

I have bought my first Antaran miniatures at Salute and went for Boromites. These are mining and heavy industry trade guilds with heavily modified bodies,

This is a work gang and heavy mining borer.

These are large GW-sized heroic models. They needed a bit of cleaning up, flash removing, mould lines filed, that sort of thing. Definition is good and Army Painter Soft tone made a nice hard shell with just the right amount of shading.

I went for orange equipment as this is supposedly civil gear. The Boromites were base painted in sand and given a greenish tint with the soft tone.

I like them and will buy some more. They have some cool mining beasts and gangers wiv guns: sorry reverted into ork-speak there for a mo - can't think why.

The Army of Evil continues to grow: queue Vincent Price.

I can now field about 1000 pts of troops with about another 500 or so of heroes.

1 Regiment and 1 troop of Revenant Cavalry.
1 Horde and 1 regiment of zombies
1Regiment of gouls
1 Troops of Revenenant Skeletons
1 Regiment and two troops of skeletons
1 skull catapult.

Plenty more to paint.

OldHammer Kings of War Skeleton Chariots

Painted up my first two OldHammer Undead Chariots for my Kings of War army: one was well painted already so I largely kept the colour scheme.

Two chariots make a troop and four a regiment in KoW terms.

I love this model, much better than the Tomb Kings Chariots.

More on the way from eBay.

Kingfisher on Rainham Marshes

Spent 45 mins waiting for a Kingfisher to appear on Rainham Marshes. Managed to get this shot via a Nikon Coolpix on the back of a Nikon scope balanced on one leg, the tripod not me, amidst a group of excited kids, behind a net.

Flampanzer II, Flamingo

I've seen some dirted up tanks in my time but this one takes the biscuit.

Beautifully painted model by Matt.
