Still up to
my ears is unfinished Cloud ships(no I haven't forgotten them ;) ),prototype Ruumet
Breehr conversions(sadly as it doesn't look like RAFM will be making any for a
while since their latest fund raising project flopped),finishing off my
Oenotrian Army with an artillery unit and more cavalry. A few more minions for
my created evil master mind on Mars plus a few other 'small' bits and bods.
I've come up with the idea to build an army of Fadath based on the work of Ni Ke Hsin.Following the description
given in the work it should allow for an interesting force. A core of city troops,
a small number of human mercenaries and the bulk made up of freed slaves.
So far I'm thinking along the lines of the city core troops being conversions
of cheap eBay bought GW LOTR elves. Leave the archers and swordsmen as they are
but add a rifled musket unit made of conversions. The arms and rifled muskets
come from Perry dismounted cavalry plastic sprues.
Mercenaries should act as an elite or a number of small elite units. So British
service troops painted up as mercs with an ex-British army hint in the uniforms.
A French artillery unit. Boars as a scout unit and just for fun Cossacks as
The freed slave forces could end up as RAFM minis but given the recent price
increase this may be a small build up. Biting off more than I can chew? Maybe
