High Elf Warmaster without GW miniatures

Warmaster is a great ruleset for large scale fantasy battles. As such, the fact that GW has stopped producing 10mm miniatures shouldn’t  stop existing or new fans from playing the game. And even with ebay prices getting out of control (especially for the more exotic races of the game) there are many providers of 10mm fantasy and historical miniatures to help you collect your new warmaster army.

Below we try to list the options available for the High elves based on the warmaster troop types. Continue reading

Warmaster Miniatures in the post-GW era

With GW pulling the plug on the production of the Specialist Games there is certain demand on alternative 10mm fantasy miniatures. Ebay can help but prices are going up and it is hard to order exactly the blisters you might want to build your army. And certain lines are rarer than others.

HOTT battle report (Orcs vs Dwarves)

After the revival of Warmaster it was the turn of another all-time-classic. Hordes of the Things! We played a demo game at Legion Wargaming club with 24AP of Orcs vs Dwarves in 15mm.

Orcs are from Demonworld. Dwarves are from Pendraken (10mm ones but I play them as 15mm since they are actually more on the 12mm side)

I recently purchased a paintstation from warlordgames.co.uk to

i) help me organize my painting corner which is usually a mess full of half painted miniatures, paints, modeling knifes etc

ii) enable me to move my hobby around inside the house for those painting sessions in the living room while my significant other is watching the telly. Much better than locking myself in the study room…

Demonworld miniatures resurrected

Ral Partha Europe has saved the Demonworld line. 5 years after the collapse of the company that produced the splendid line of 15mm fantasy miniatures, those will now once again be widely available. We have based quite some HOTT armies on this line (http://www.athens-fantasy.gr/tag/demonworld/) and Ral Partha has promised to produce smaller packs this time, which will make it much easier to build those varied 24AP armies!
