BR's Army BlogBorder Reiver 03-20-2009

At Grimstone's suggestion I'm starting this blog for the repainting of my Dawi Zharr.

As of today, the following minis are now up to standards:

Chaos Dwarf Lord on Great Taurus (Kurgan Grudgebearer)


My 20 strong regiment of Immortals (CD Warriors with Great Weapons)


And 8 other warriors with Great Weapons (part of the Nineveh Regiment)

And here is the list of things to update by the end of the year:

Avatar of War mini (picture up 3 Nov 09)
Sorcerer Lord on a Lamassu (Finished 8 Apr 09)
Bull Centaur Character (Hyksos Forgebreaker)
3 CD Heroes with Shields (2 done 24 May 09)
1 CD Hero with the Battlestandard (Meggido Fireforge)
1 CD Hero with 2 Hand Weapons (Borath the Slavemaster)(done 24 May 09)
3 Sorcerers (Ashkelon Runeforger, Ozymandias Ironbeard, and Gath Firestone) (Ashkelon and Gath are done, but Ozy needs touchups);
Hobgoblin Hero on a Wolf;
20 Warriors with Great Weapons (Akkad the Grim's Raiders - 11 finished as of 3 Nov 09 - the other 9 finsihed on December 18);
20 Warriors with Great Weapons (The Nineveh Regiment - finished June 27, 2009);
18 Warriors with Blunderbusses (Sargon's Regiment)(done August 3, 2009);
15 Blunderbussiers with full Command (Jericho Regiment, includes 5 from Sargon's Regt [transfers] and 10 BFSP Thunderers converted - 15 Jun 09);
10 Hobgoblins (some with shields, some with armour) (finished 10 April 2009);
6 Hobgoblin Archers (I want more)(done as of August 26, 2009, but no pictures, yet);
11 Hobgoblin Wolf Rider Archers;
2 Death Rockets (24 May 09);
2 Hobgoblin Bolt Throwers (April 10, 2009);
20 Black Orcs with shields (Ozymandias' Janissaries);
23 Sneaky Gitz with a musician (Garek's Mob);
10 Orc Arrer Boyz (Lurgal's Mob)(done as of August 26, 2009);
2 Earthshakers (done August 3, 2009);
Hashut's Children (6 Bull centaurs with Full command, done); and
The Temple Guard (6 more Bull Centaurs, with a musician).


Oh, yes and about 25 Marauder era Chaos Dwarfs and a Tenderizer (done)

I will also convert the 3 BFSP Miners command models into the start of another CD Warrior Regiment.


The object here is to touch up the current paintjobs to my current standard and to redo the bases to match the dark bases for the done models.

Wow Border Reiver that is a long list of stuff to paint  - do you paint a model at a time or  a unit at a time ? (I do the later).
The stuff you have painted so far looks great though

Unit at a time - usually in blocks of 5 or so.  I find it makes standardizing them easier.

Hi BR

I really like the colour scheme of your Taurus and your Avatar!

They are not so common!

Impressive army ... how many points could you field in a battle?

RE: BR's Army BlogBorder Reiver 03-21-2009

To be honest, I've never checked out how big the army is points wise.  I've got at least 3K with two lords and 4 core choices, but I need to get more core before I can field 4K or more.

RE: BR's Army BlogBorder Reiver 03-21-2009

The next model to be redone is the Sorcerer Lord



on his Lammasu



I've always been happy with the colour scheme, so all that'll happen here is a couple of touchups, some highlighting, and a little rebasing.

And now the Sorcerer Lord on the Lammasu redone (three boys, and other duties mean that I generally only get to paint at lunch or before work).

Here's the rider


And the Lammasu shots





And of course the critter's face (again)


Comments and constructive criticisms always appreciated.

RE: BR's Army BlogBorder Reiver 04-11-2009

By "a different colour, I take it that you mean the "wonderful" black and red colour scheme it was painted in back in early 90s?  That colour scheme was the inspiration behind choosing something that looked dark and nasty, not bright and colourful.

And because I was able take some photos today and al these lads needed was some rebasing  My Hobgoblin warriors:












Again constructive criticism is always appreciated.

Lovely old school hobgoblins.  If they didn't cost an Arm and a Leg I'd have a bunch myself!

Keep it up.
