Work on the fantasy armies is progressing. As I paint up some of my unpainted fantasy models I also dip into the storage container of painted Orcs and Goblins and re-base them into new units. This time, rather than an Orc or Goblin, I found a giant which can be used with different armies.
|The giant was painted a decade ago and has been sitting a storage since and has never seen the tabletop. It just required a rebasing.|
The recently painted Eternal Retributor figures are from the Games Workshop Age of Sigmar starter set purchased a few years back. In all there are 18 Eternal figures which will be painted as opposition for the Orcs. These will soon be added to with some Elves. I was hoping to get some Wood Elves second hand, but they seem rather in demand and expensive. As an alternative I have purchased some Elves and Centaurs by Mantic Games. They are yet to arrive, and I will am interested to see what they are like to paint.

With this project I am hoping to eventually make up three smallish forces:
- Hordes - Orcs and Goblins
- Alliance - Eternals, Elves, Dwarves, and Men (Wars or the Roses figures)
- Neutrals - Giants, skeletons, dragons and vampires (These can be used to supplement other forces).
