We’ve trudged through snow, ice, sleet and waves of nagging from Frogdog to bring you another batch of finished models. Gaze upon them disdainfully.

Paladins of the Wall (Warmachine)

There’s a lot to like here in Lowry’s entry. These are the stalwart good guys of the Warmachine setting and it shows in their oh-so-noble, pretentious poses. The white robes and rich reds all work well but it’s the little touches that make it. Only one is wearing their trademark flowing cape and the other has befriended the crow accessory from the Wracks set.

Romano-British Infantry (Hail Caesar)

My own contribution follows on last month’s entry. This is a small unit of Romano-British auxilary infantry. The colour scheme is unchanged but to reflect their scratch unit status, I’ve been painting a higher proportion of the models as old men, beardless boys and gingers. Soulless abominations.

Fallschirmjager Mortar Platoon (Flames of War)

Nosediver shows off two things, another completed platoon and his fancy new 4grounds buildings. There’s not a lot more to be said for his painting, it’s spot on. The Army Painter tufts continue to make his great work look even better. I think it’s in the nature of 15mm models to require good basing. You simply can’t just throw on some sand and assume that the paint job on the model will carry it.

Tiger (Flames of War)

Here’s an advertisment for airbrushing, check on the finish on this tank. Frogdog sends in a Tiger with what can only be described as very nicely blended camouflage. That quality is actually near-impossible to replicate with brushes and just makes a mockery of my efforts to produce something similar.

Gebirgsjager Squad (Flames of War)

Craftfeld sent in a few pictures this month, I went with this one to highlight the ultra-realistic basing. This just reinforces my earlier point that 15mm bases can be mini-vignettes and look their very best when people make good use of their basing materials. Craftfeld has been getting ever more ambitious in his use of household/garden materials of late and the tree is just spot-on.

We’ll be doing another roundup in April so get your works into prd@onthestep.net before the end of March. As ever, our local tech adept states that photos above 5MB in size tend to bounce back so keep your entries below that size.

Rules Refresher
1) Each participant may only send in one entry for a given month. You can send in multiple photos of the entry but only one will be used.
2) The entry can be a single model or single unit. The smaller the unit, the more detail in the photo so aim low.
3) The model can be from any game system. If it’s particularly esoteric, we’d appreciate a covering note explaining what it is.
4) The entry must have been finished within that given month. You can’t submit completed pieces from your back catalogue.
5) If you want us to include a link back to more of your work, we’d be delighted to do that.
