Panzerfäuste: Deathless Likho

Painting up a few Panzerfäuste bits and pieces, I decided to slap some paint on the Deathless Likho, demonic creatures summoned to The Land to provide the Deathless army with intelligent creatures capable of commanding Zombi units and operating mechanical weapons...

The miniatures are wearing WWI style Russian uniforms but carry WW2 weapons. The Signalizatory here (with Starshina NCO) using signal flags (unlike the other Panzerfäuste races whose command sets have radios).

The figures were just base painted, given a wash with Army Painter Military Tone and then highlighted. I really liked the dark red skin contrasting nicely with the single yellow eye.

I also painted the two Likho 'handlers' for the Nezhit Undead Troll who are attempting to control the reanimated brute which I painted in 2016!

I've enjoyed painting these Panzerfäuste miniatures and will keep dipping into my resin pile as there are a lot of great models which I never got around to painting in the Hysterical days...

Pony Wars: Mounted Indians I

I managed to finish the first 'Red Indians' for the forthcoming Pony Wars (or B Troop Ain't Coming Back) rules, painting up thirty-five 10mm castings from Irregular Miniatures.

I'm not 100% certain about basing requirements, mainly casualty removal, but as I need rather a lot of hostiles I decided the first batch would be based in 5's.

It must be noted that the miniatures are lovely and I was really surprised with the quality of the sculpts. They are a little bit slimmer than Lancashire and Pendraken's models but are compatible. 

Now I've finished these I'll order some more from Irregular and another company of cavalry from Lancashire Games.
