Hello all, both grizzled veteran and errant youth.
New life has been restored to these 'experienced' limbs and I have returned to the Quest with a much younger vigor. Dusting off the brushes and shaking the pots of paint I have once again immersed myself in the world of miniatures and wargaming. A great deal of this reason is that I have had time to adjust to the injustice handed out to fantasy players (IMHO of course) by the rapid exodus from End Times into the Age of Sigmar. The reason for my revival would go to my son who has recently taken a great interest in the miniatures that I have displayed in my cave. So I find myself once again standing on the field of battle with hobby knife and clippers. With that said lets move on.
The one thing that I find myself enjoying about the changes to fantasy would be the bases. My knights have more clearances and warriors of chaos look pretty good on a 32mm scenic base. And with this extra room comes more conversions.
And now for the true reason for this thread: I will start by undertaking (2)two challenges. The first will be a Skaven host done up for my son, chosen due to the fact that my wife has a slight rodent phobia (sometimes I can not help but love my sons choices). And I will once again take up the call of the lady for this one and field the knights of Bretonnia on new bases.
Skaven Horde (So far)
Most of these are built and based. Just need to start painting these guys while I work on assembling the Bretonnian's
- Grey Seer
- Warlord ( IoB )
- Warlock ( IoB )
- 3 units of 20 Clanrats ( IoB )
- 4 Rat Ogres ( IoB )

- 2 Wind Globes ( IoB )
- 2 Flame Teams ( IoB )
- Doomwheel (Not Built Yet)
Bretonnian Army (So Far)
I got a hold of a battalion box from a LGS for $50 (box had some water damage but all models inside were fine) so I will start with them and then build more later.
- Lord on Horse (WIP)
- Paladin on Foot (Hermit Knight Conversion)
- Paladin on Horse (Battle Banner Conversion)
- Damsel on Horse (WIP)
- 8 KotR (New)
- 30 Men at Arms (Yes I finally purchased some peasants after collecting bretonnia for nearly 18 years)
- 2 units of 12 Archers (Half done the other new)
- Pegasus Knight
- 6 Questing Knights (WIP)
For now this is simply a placeholder for the project since I still need to take some photos this week of the progress so far. I am excited to get back into the hobby full swing once again and it is nice being back on Librarium Online. I see that there are still a few familiar names out there.
