Last Painted Figures Of 2015, Part One of Two

2015 is almost in the bag and these are the last figures off my painting bench.  All the minis shown in this post are 28mm and are from the less serious side of my painting interests.

First up are two figures for my Weird War Two project.  On the left is Gefreiter Arnold Schwarsenjaeger.  He’s a Bob Murch Pulp Figures mini from the Stahl Mask Doom Squad pack.  On the right is the Artizan sculpt, Father Sweeney.

The Fr. Sweeney figure will represent one of the heroes of my Weird War project, Fr. Tristram Mercer, scholar and vampire hunter, before he entered the military.  I love his hair.  I think he also plays bass in a 1980s New Wave band.


Next up are two baddies for my Middle Earth project.  Both are Games Workshop figures.  On the left is Gothmog, Captain of Mordor who will make an excellent orc commander.  On the right is an Orc Taskmaster.   Leadership is a pretty simple science in Mordor.

The taskmaster is quite a corpulent fellow.  He must eat the runty orcs who fail basic training.

Gothmog is an orc of style and sports some natty yellow trousers.  He must be an hussar at heart.

Finally, a refurbished GW Rohirrim Horse Archer.  Not a great picture.  I gave him a red shield just to break the pattern of green shields done thus far.

Horse archer vs Gothmog.  Who will win?


These figures bring my 2015 totals to:

28mm:  Foot Figures: 85; Mounted Figures: 15, Artillery: 2, Vehicles: 2, Scenic Pieces: 2

20mm:  Vehicles: 1; Artillery: 1, Foot Figures: 6

  3. These are some really nice efforts. Particularly like the orcs. Not only yellow troos but purple on the Fat bloke too! Stylish!

    The vampire hunting minister I believe was the original lead bassist from Spandau Ballet?
