Dogs of War Pikemen (conversions)

Pikes are the infantry weapon of choice in Tilea. Twice as long
as a normal spear and longer than a cavalryman’s lance, the
front of a unit of pikes is an impenetrable wall of steel.
The pikemen is the most typical unit of the Dogs of War and is capable of resisting a cavalry charge and fight well against other infantries.

Initially, we though of making our Dogs of War army using miniatures that we didn't need in our other armies and like that we put together our first pikemen unit. In the unit we put every extra miniature from the rest of our warhammer fantasy armies, changing their weapons to pikes make by enlarging spears using the shafts of other spears or of some of the standard bearers arms. The result was a rather ugly unit but it was the first unit of our army even if now we have dismantled it.

We have use or reserve the miniatures of the unit once we have dismantled it. For example we are thinking of making a Blood Bowl team with the dark elfs.

We also used a dwarf that cannot be seen in the unit as it is a dwarf and is in the 4th row to make one of the dwarf blood bowl team runners. This particular 5th edition dwarf had loosed his head and arms and there were replaced with 6th edition dwarf bits a pretty hideous conversion. To make the runner we unglue the head and arms and make new ones with some putty.

Blood Bowl Minotaur Finished (searching people interested in buying a resin copy)

There have been 18 persons interested in having a copy: 13 from Spain and 5 from the rest of the world.
The final price for the copies is 4,00€.
I already have made half of the casting mold, and I hope to make the other half tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.
Hello there!
You may remember this post where I explained that my brother was trying to make a Minotaur for Blood Bowl but he had some troubles with the head and I made one for him. Well, keeping with his word, he has continue working on it until it was finished.

Homemade Orcs & Goblins Doom Diver Catapult (scratch building)

My brother and I made this Doom Diver Catapult a really long time ago. The Orcs & Goblins were one of our first Warhammer Fantasy Armies and we bought a lot of metal miniatures like two goblin chariots, 3 goblins spear chukkas, a Wyvern, Giant and a goblin rock lobber. Nonetheless we decided to make our own Doom Diver Catapult using balsa wood and Green Stuff.

Dogs of War Duellist

Small units of lightly armed skirmishers are normally employed
to protect the flanks of pike-armed units

In this entry I want to show you another two of our Warhammer Fantasy Dogs of War units. In the picture above you can see half of each unit as we painted first one half of each and then the other, it turns out that wasn't a great idea =)

To make the Duellist we used the Empire Free Company box set. We made 8 swordsmen (matasietes) duellist and 8 pirate duellist.We armed a few of the pirates ones with pistols in case we wanted to use them equipped like that but in general they are equipped with two hand weapons. Given the options of the Empire Free Company box we didn't have to make any conversion as the miniatures where just what we needed for this units.

Blood Bowl Chaos Warrior Finished and Painted

Some of you will remember this previous post where I explained my intentions to make a few chaos warriors. Well some time ago I manage to finish the first one and start making resin copies in case any one was interested in them.

For the moment I just selling copies in Spain until I have a few more things to sell. If someone is interested before I officially open my online store he could contact me in my e-mail: lord-skofis(a)

I hope to have the other three warriors and some optional mutations bits to personalize the models ready for the beginning of next year.

Necron CrypTeks (conversion based in Necron Warriors)

My brother has made two Crypteks for his Warhammer 40000 Necron Army converting a couple of plastic Necron Warriors. In my opinion he has got a good result but they maybe lack a little more details.

Lizardmen Kroxigor from scratch

At the beginning of this year I tried to make a Kroxigor model to use with my Warhammer Fantasy lizardmen army, then make copies to have 3 kroxigors and latter change the green into a Blood Bowl player. For the moment I just have the Warhammer version as I really have troubles with the Blood Bowl one.

Ruins II for Warhammer Fantasy/Mordheim

This is the cheap version of the Ruins I as I also made a cheaper version of the House.

The process is quite similar to the one explained in the tutorial of the cheaper version of the house, but in this case I only used cardboard, I didn't use balsa wood at all. This ruined building is ideal to use in Warhammer Fantasy games or in Mordheim.

Sorry I'm busy

On top of every unfinish project that I have in my working table I'm currently preparing a couple of miniatures for two online competitions of a Spanish Forum and the deadline is coming soon so I don't have a lot of time to post in the blog.

For the moment I leave you with a couple of pics of my finished Blood Bowl Chaos Warrior. In a few days I will post more about it.
