Wood Elf Cavalry Command

From their website:

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. Here are some greens I have been meaning to put up for a little while. I am hoping these will be ready by the end of the month or early October.

First, we have some wood elf cavalry. The wood elves have need some cavalry for a while and these will make nice additions. The primary mount option is elk, though packs will be available for horses as mounts.

Ben Siens just sent a picture of the first 2 ratmen greens he did up, and I thought I would share them here. He also did 3 ratmen dollies, which we will use to make more poses. I am really excited about this project and think this army will make a nice addition to the 15mm fantasy world.

Splintered Light release Cyclops army

Splintered Light Miniatures have released a 15mm fantasy Cyclops army set.

Cyclops army

From their website:

I realize I have shown these at various points but I thought I would showcase the new cyclops army today.

First, is the command pack, which consists of a chieftain, standard bearer, musician, and shaman. The shaman is dressed in a bear pelt since part of the shaman’s initiation is the slaying of a great cave bear. Second, are the clubs. These are the primary hitting force of the cyclops. Third, are the stone throwers, serving as missile troops.

Finally, are the giant cyclops. Though much rarer, these are powerful beasts who can not only crush with their great rocks but also launch them at enemies.

These were all sculpted by Adam Gaylord (Wiff Waff).

I am really excited to show the latest greens from Faron Betchley.  I am really loving the way the wood elves and woodland stuff is coming along and think these are going to be fantastic armies!  The three sets of greens are maiden guard (which I am thinking need some shields but we will see), rangers, and dryads.  I think the dryads in particular are really unique and beautifully done.  I really feel like they have a sense of flowing trees and branches.  Anyway, here are the pictures.
