New Year's Painting

It's hard to believe that January is two thirds over already, and this is only my second post for the year. However, it is a post with all of the stuff I've managed to paint so far. An eclectic mix, I've got fantasy, sci-fi and historical here.

First off, Star Wars Legion.
Rebel troopers
 I've painted plenty of Legion figures so far, but these are the first that I've painted for myself.
Imperial Stormtroopers
The scratch-built terrain piece was also painted at the beginning of this year. I'm planning to do several more like it.
Amazing what you can do with an old yoghurt container and a Pringles tube!
Next up, a completed second warband for Burrows and Badgers.
The full warband led by Justin Beaver

Terry Boarder



Rowan Adderson
All of these guys have already been up on Facebook, which is a much more instant forum, but doesn't have the journaling appeal that a blog has, so apologies if you have seen these characters already.

Finally, Half of Craig's next Seleucid phalanx was finished. The second half is up after a finish a couple more of my own units.
A proper staged scenic shot will happen when the whole unit is complete

Now that I 've got the hang of LBMS transfers I really like them.
 On the painting table I have some French Dragoons for WSS, another unit of rebel troopers, and the Warlord Games MASH set to do for John. Hopefully they'll be up before the end of the month!



  1. Some great pieces in your January output, Nathan!

  2. Great mix of periods here Nate....I have always liked the star wars imperial storm trooper....why do the baddies always have the coolest uniforms?! I really like the burrows and badgers figures too...definitely not my thing, but they look great and the names made me smile.

    1. Thanks Keith. I just love the Burrows and Badgers figures, and you do't need many for a game. The rules are superb as well.

  3. Wow! What an amazing start to the year Nate, love that Legion terrain.

    1. Thanks Michael. The Star Wars Legion figures are lovely to paint - and I've been watching Sorastro's videos which I'm learning plenty from.

  4. Gorgeous work on all of these!

  5. I'm a Star Wars fan always, but those Burrows and Badgers figures look fantastic. Wonderful job!

    1. Cheers John. Yes, it is about time I started my own Star Wars Legion forces. As for Burrows and Badgers, there are just some things that I can't help but want to paint!

  6. Splendid toys Nate...

    And people call me a butterfly... :-)

    All the best. Aly

    1. I'm certainly sticking to plan, Aly, it's just that there are multiple plans in my plan :D.
