opps been a while....

So After trying to base my printed lizards I found it very difficult to do a traditional square base, which has to be in base to base contact.

It is easy to scale down though, soo here is a quick size comparison



Finally got out and had a WHFB 6th ED game last Sunday, my Lizards went up against daemons, was a lot of fun, was only a quick 600 points, but good to blow some of the old dust off.

HoloMiniatures makes the digital files. I'm not a huge fan of the Elven faces, I think its the eye look off to me, but every thing else about them, is soooo good :)

HoloMiniatures @HoloMiniatures - MyMiniFactory

These guys have more of a complete Highborn Elven army and you can order the mini's from them instead of having to print them yourself. Their store is a bit behind their patreon, so sea guard and the bolt thrower are not on their yet.  They also do other armies, like lizardmen, they are about to release one of the best looking carnosaurius, the dino is really well positioned.

These guys LOVE their lizardmen, so they have a huge range including terrain. There is a tone of stuff for bretonnian fans too.

Beautiful elven steeds  ;D, giving me that 'straight out of Rivendell' vibe.

Oh yeah, the Lost Kingdom Lizardmen and Mercia ranges are awesome, I've browsed through them and half-drooled before, lol. Mercia is basically everything I dreamt of a revived/updated Bretonnia to be. Alas.

That's a very interesting range with the Highborn elves. The ring element is a neat concept. Probably very divisive, and obviously something you'd take off if you want to approximate GW's high elves, but I can certainly see them as a cool way to make them stand out from GW or other high elf concepts.

Took my time going back through what I've missed and boy, you've been pulling out the stops Magenb! So many projects and so much work. The Stormcast look super cool and I'm loving the direction of the Elves too. I think I may even like the terrain the best...really gritty, impressive look to it.

Hands down, though, I think I like the Bio Titan the absolute best!  ;)

Yeah, I have too may things on the go, trying to narrow down the list a bit.

Work exploded so I have not had much painting time, but have been squeezing in some really fun whfb (6th ed) games.

The kick started I back finally came in too, so I've been tinkering with wood elves. We haven't played games big enough to field this big boy, but couldn't help but to start dropping some paint on it :)

That Treeman is really creepy and weird; kinda like if Guillermo Del Toro did miniature design...I love it!

It really is the stuff of nightmares. Well played Sir!

The dryads are super creepy too, thin mismatched limb sizes, really nice effect since they are meant to cause fear :)



Couldn't resist the new Eldar models, so a quick wip shot





HighBorn Elven Archers, I really like the extra bits these guys add in like the gryph hound and the wheel barrow of arrows :)

Awesome additions to your collection, Mage!

Love the rangers and those High Elven archers, but your Maugan Ra takes my choice of favorite pick in this update  :). I like how the bone came out, especially on the weapon's scythe!

Keep it up!

Black and dark red is usually a very effective combination and this is no exception.  The original Phoenix Lords were released around 1994/1995, so they're more than twenty years old ;).
