Variags of Khand   2 comments

Painted some Variags of Khand infantry.

Contrast colours

Black cloth. Red flags.

Red armour. Highlighted Blood Red, edged with gold. Nuln Oil gloss wash to armour and weapons.

Veni Vedi Vici transfers to the banners. No suns but Mongolian culture is famous for it’s Gold Eagle Hunters and other birds of prey so I felt this was quite fitting. I can see the Variags coming from the Eastern Steppes riding their chariots into battle.

Preparing for the Bridge of Khazad Dum   Leave a comment

This one took longer to set up than planned. Creating a flat 4×4 battle field using just DF pieces was harder than expected. This is because it is mainly to be used for dungeon/ cavern corridors or castles. Any way with the edition of lava and pool it was completed. Maybe next time will use DF stuff just for elevated terrain areas and use a mat underneath for the main sections.
