A little bit of painting and quite a lot of new stuff

So this week was again a slow one for getting painting projects done. Only the three Dwarfs from last week have been finished. The dreadnougght saw the washes and a new big project has been started (Ah! Yes. So begins the flapping of the butterfly.) Anyhow, here is a picture of my Iron Hills Warriors up to this point.

Iron Hills Dwarf Army
Pict 015: Iron Hills Dwarfs (Mid January)
And now for the pictures I promised of the first purchased miniatures that will get added to my tally. It's quite a nice lot of Citadel Miniatures from the mid to late nineties; mainly Woodelfs and Bretonnians but with some Vampires and other stuff such as swarms and an Archers command group from Harlequin Miniatures sprinkled in.

Orion Woodelf
Pict 016: Orion, King of the Woods (4. ed.)

Wood Elf General mounted 4th edition
Pict 017: Wood Elf General on horse (4. ed.)

Skaw the Falconer Woodelf Wood Elf
Pict 018: Skaw the Falconer

Wychwethyl the Wild Wardancer Woodelf Wood Elf
Pict 019: Wychwethyl the Wild

Wood Elf War Dancer 4th edition
Pict 020: Wood Elf War Dancers (4. ed.)

Wood Elf Scout 4th edition
Pict 021: Wood Elf Scouts

Wood Elf Ranger 4th edition
Pict 022: Wood Elf Waywatchers (4. ed.)

Woodelf Dryad 4th edition Wood Elf Harlequin Entling
Pict 023: Dryads (Harlequin Entlings)

Wood Elf Archer 4th edition
Pict 024: Wood Elf Archers (4. ed.)
The Wood Elfs were my first Warhammer Fantasy Army and I always had a liking even for the older miniatures. I esspecially look forward to paint Orion and the War Dancers. But they will have to wait for some time, because I have some of their respective 6th edition versions started in my project box.

Bretonia Green Knight
Pict 025: The Green Knight

Bretonia Morgiana le Fey
Pict 026: Morgiana le Fey (5. ed.)

Bretonia Suliman le Saracen
Pict 027: Suliman le Saracen

Bretonia Bertrand le Brigand, Hugo le Petit, Gui le Gros
Pict 028: Bertrand le Brigand, Hugo le Petit, Gui le Gros

Bretonia Knight of the Realm Command
Pict 029: Knights of the Realm Command (5. ed.)

Bretonia Knight of the Realm 5th edition
Pict 030: Knights of the Realm (5. ed.)

Bretonia Knight of the Realm 6th edition
Pict 031: Knights of the Realm (6. ed.)

Bretonnian Archer
Pict 032: Bretonnian Archers
And that's the Bretonnians. I have started basing Bertrand, Hugo and Gui - I just love the models and hope to get to them soon, but we'll see. The plastic miniatures will all need a bit of fixing up. Some broken and bent bows, lances and headdresses will have to be glued, but I quite enjoy this part of the hobby. I will see what I will do about the missing backbanners that are missing from the Green Knight. I'll either raid my bitsbox or I'll keep a look out on Ebay.

Harlequin Archers Commanders
Pict 033: Harlequin Miniatures Archer Command Group

Vampire Skeleton 5th edition
Pict 034: Vampire Skeletons (5. ed.)

Vamire Skeletons Bit
Pict 035: Vampire Skeleton Bits (5. ed.)

Vampire Manfred van Carstein mounted 4th edition
Pict 036: Manfred van Carstein (6. ed.)

Warhammer Swarm: Snake, Spider, Rat
Pict 037: Warhammer Swarms (Snakes, Spiders, Rats)

And that's it: Manfred van Carstein with some sekeletons and some animal swarms. The skeletons and animals will most likely be used in my Dungeons and Dragons Campaign to pepper my player. The skeletons wll have to be fixed as well - but I might leave some as they are now or convert them. I always liked the skeletons that are crawling out of the dirt.

And with that my Hobby Tally stands 7 miniatures painted against 156 miniatures bought (I counted the swarms as one miniature per base).
