Enter The Dragon

Hi all,
I just wanted to put a couple of pictures up of a dragon I have painted for my mate Stu of Tears Dust and Dice fame . We met at the Wyvern Wargamers club and he's done a lot to get me into wargaming I have even won a couple of games !  At the moment Stu's painting up ancient Chinese and he also wants to put in a fantasy twist so hence a dragon . The miniature is from Bushido miniatures range I painted him blue because it reminded me of dragons you see on willow pattern plates .
  So Stu many thanks for the help over these last months and I hope you like him just don't let Dane play him in the games or we might as well pack up and go home now !
Regards Furphy .

Footsore Miniatures Late Romans

At last those late Romans from Footsore Miniatures its taken a few months but here they are its always the way I need to earn to buy my own figures and this in turn slows my own miniature army down to a crawl . I keep saying it but not only are these some of the best sculpts I have worked with but who ever cast them has done a top job . And now another batch has arrived I can tell you there is no fluke all great work and another smooth order you cant ask for more .
  Now I have to confess I knew newt to nothing about the late roman period I have a smattering of knowledge about early Rome but that's about it . These will be used for a Dux Britanniarum campaign at the Wyvern Wargamers Club but I would like to expand them into a larger late Roman army who knows it might be my first completed army !
There's a couple of cosmetics I need to change that I have noticed in the photos but there good to go and now I need to slot the others into the painting line . I have tried painting these in NMM (non metalic metal ) style,  the commanders helmet could do with being a darker bronze and the male shirts maybe darker as well . But I have not worked with a lot of NMM so its a bit of a learning curve . But I will try with the next unit as they say practice makes perfect !
  Thanks for taking a look see you soon...........................
Regards Furphy .
