French Fusiliers, Spanish Javelins, Oldhammer Guardsmen, Space Marines, Bretonians, and a Warg?

Happy Sunday,

I've managed to knock out another 38 miniatures!  I could finally break the 500 a year lead ceiling!  But then again the new Fallout video game can be downloaded Tuesday night, so I'll likely fail.

Here are 12 plastic Perry French.  I must have bought five boxes and may only have 60 left to paint.

Here they are gazing intently at a wall.
Their hats are shiny because the paint is still wet. 
 Here they are marching through some terrain, I'm making.

 Here are ten of eleven Spanish javelin men from Battle Honors.  Actually the guy holding his shield may be a Byzantine javelin guy that snuck in the painting cue.  

The eleventh guy is camera shy.
GW recently changed the name of the Imperial Guard to something stupid like Assless Militia.   Here is a stupid blurry picture of seven ancient formerly named Imperial Guardsmen.  I have no clue how many of these guys I've painted, but it's many hundreds.
Here they are looking away from you.  
Here are two much more modern Astra Listerin radio troops.
The Asshole Minutemen radios are called Vox and get bigger every generation of new models.
Here's two more space marines in my goal to paint all the chapters.  The previous owner was kind enough to spray them green for me.  They are Salamanders and Invaders.  I can't paint stars very well at all.
Here's what might be a warg and an old Grenadier model with a halberd.
I think the wolf warg thing is one of the old TSR Chainmail models, from back when they were unpainted metal.
Lastly a few Bretonians, the one on the left made an appearance two weeks ago.  I've since noticed he didn't have a shield.  The shields are spares from the nice Fireforge Sergeants box. 

The poor guy in the middle has no weapons.

Till next time, when I have no idea what will be painted.

love and kisses,



  1. Eclectic mix of figures as always. Well done, as always!

  2. Excellent brushwork. 500 minis in a year?? Not bad going at all!!

  3. Wow, you've been productive!

  4. A lot of cool stuff Bf, like your style dude!

  5. Excellent productivity and variety. great work. that pooch is one mean looking critter. i dont think the halberd will be enough to keep his snapping jaws from ripping a throat or two out. ouch!

  6. Everything is great but let me just say, the French are perfect!

  7. Once again, very impressive work, James.

  8. Great looking figures, and photos...

  9. Brilliant! I wish I could get things done in batches of 38!

  10. Another amazing (and very varied) collection from your production line though the oldhammer figures are showing their age whilst the Brettonians are still as sharp as ever.
    As an afterthought, Citadel still haven't lost any of their appeal to me, I used a lot of them 'back in the day' (i.e. befor GW) for D&D.
    You got to have quite a force now of the Perry Naps too.

  11. Very nice work, the GW imperial guard bring back some memories

  12. Good stuff. Missed it when you posted. I have a secret shipment of a few Cadians on their way.

  14. Love the French Infantry. Big fan of Perry's plastics range. Can't wait to see the Armee when complete.
