Man o' War galleys

 Did some galleys for the game, these will be jacks of all trades, doubling up as most of the one wound ships across the fleets

Man o' War high elf ships

 I'm painting a small high elf fleet of 500pts for the game, above you can see an eagleship: basically a ballista platform that fires broadsides. Insted of the origial man o' war models I'll be going with dreadfleet as they are cheaper, bigger and more detailed. The problem with those is that there isn't a great variety of ships which makes proxies form other brands a must for some fleets.
To make the eagleship I had to remove the dragon and ram from the original "seadrake" model.

 There are some cute dolphins around the base, I had to model a wave in the prow to cover the space where the ram was

 The fleet's admiral sails in a dragonship, no tinkering with it since the dreadfleet ship represents it well enough, with the ram and a perched dragon to boot

Man o' War fortresses

 I'm resurrecting my man o war hobby beginning by some shore fortresses. They're nedded for one scenario and as generic terrain. Two are standard medieval, while the third is a modern age fort for nations such as the empire or Bretonnia

LotR warg riders

 Painted these orcs for battle of the five armies, only Beorn to sculpt and paint now.
They come from the Red Box's alliance series, the mainstay for 1/72 fantasy minis

Mordheim: defend the find

 Played another game of our mordheim campaign, my father was using a new dwarf warband so it would be their baptism of fire
 The dorfs had to defend a pyramid where their treasure was stashed
 My warband was composed of seven ogres, here the latest addition
 I rushed to the stairs
 The new ogre was killed by the dwarf noble. Unauspicious beginning!
 The dwarf engineer dodged some native traps
 The ogre guide charged a lone dwarf thunderer
 Some of my ogres began climbing the pyramid, while my captain duelled with a slayer, giving him eventually the mighty doom he was looking for

  The noble keps felling ogre after ogre
 The stubborn engineer was eventually knocked down by a carnivorous plant
 Finally my captain, Goldbeard, decided to take matters in his own hand, challenging the pesky noble
 The guide finished off his oponent with ease
 As did Goldbeard
The engineer also was done for, and with only two dwarfs remaining my father conceded

More Mordheim next year, with more warbands and, perhaps, a change of setting.
