Hobby Update

Hi everyone!

I hope you have all enjoyed the posts over the last few months. I am now back from Texas and am ready to get back to painting!

At the top of the list will be continuing work on the Baneblade. When I post again next week I hope to give you some serious progress on it.

I hate to put a post up with no photos at all so here is a photo of my old school rough riders, converted and painted circa 2001.

I was having a think about when I must have painted them and I can recall it must have been when the first Lord of the Rings movies and miniatures came out. The reason being the lances are uruk hai pikes!

They now look dated,  and certainly compared to the painting standard of the rest of the army they are a little out of place. However. I'm still fond of them, you've got to love Rough Riders!

Thanks for reading!


  1. You don't HAVE to love Rough Riders...but you definitely should.

  2. They do look good regardless of their older paint-style.

    I do love me some Rough Riders, mind I couldn't eat a whole platoon though.

  3. I've got 10 of Gravis' Rough Riders to convert at some point. Can't wait to get them done. Only problem is getting the horses is a real pain in the arse.

  4. All good stuff. But yeah, horses can be tricksey. And as Dai sez, you can't eat more than one at a time...
