Notables Challenge - Completed figure - online build

At last I complete my figure for the Notables group challenge, a halfling marauder. Armed with a tankard and equipped with a pack and pie. The pack is made from milliput but the pie half and tankard are from Alternative Armies as is the HEVC halfling himself.

Here he is together with another halfling I painted at the same time, originally a standard bearer I've given him an axe as I already had a standard for this section.

I've enjoyed doing these conversions and will do some more on the other HEVC halflings I have left to paint.

Notables challenge 2015 - online build 4

And now very close to completion, only any final retouches, varnishing and basing to complete.

Back view with a pie and painted on buckles for the pack.

And with the other halfling I decide to build whose base still needs building up.

Notables Challenge - online build part 3

Very quick update with a phone camera shot to show progress - most of the basic paintwork is done now, just into the details.

Notables challenge 2015 - online build part 2

The notables group can be found on Yahoo at with the specific post that got me started here.

My updates with an undercoated figure with the accessories of a tankard and half a pie added from accessories sold by Alternative Armies and a pipe added from wire and green stuff. It was the first time I've really used Squadron's Green Stuff and I found it a bit different to my usual Milliput so I think I'll have to check out any tutorials on it online to make things easier next time.

I've also started doing some work on another halfling on the right from my spares as he was originally a standard bearer but not wanting 2 standards in 1 section I've replaced it with an axe.

The Notables Challenge November 2015 - my entry online build 1

As the Notables Yahoo Group has now got its first challenge around a theme of 'Le Marauder' issued I've decided to take part.

As it is a single figure to be  painted up I've gone with one of my Flintloque halflings that was already earmarked for a conversion job.


In the end I have used milliput so far rather than green stuff and I have selected a pie and a tankard to add.

Work in progress - I didn't take one of the figure after I'd finished doing some carving, but it can be seen I've removed his knife from his hand and built up sleeves on him and added a pack.

As the photos probably show the figure over life size they are useful to identify odd bits I still need to tidy up on the conversion work.

Frostgrave Terrain Piece

One more piece of work finished - a stone circle which got started an awful long time ago, which shows just how long this and Goyah from the last update took to get finished.

 Firstly to show scale with an old Citadel dwarf and King Fernando of the Dark Elves from Alternative Armies.

Three views from different angles. Though I will use this for Frostgrave I have made the basing on this piece as summer style as it will mainly be used for Fantasy games.

 Some more WIP on terrain and miniatures - Wolves for Frostgrave - Alternative Armies figures with a few more dry brushes to get the coats where I want them.

 And a Dolmen - like the standing stones actual garden stones and an old CD repurposed.
