|Ancient Greek Slingers.|
In January I finally started my Ancient Greek project. It was a heartfelt wish of mine because my cousin Karl and me are planning this project since ages. After Karl gave me a box of Victrix Greek Peltasts as Christmas present and a box of Victrix Greek Hoplites as birthday present I had no other option than to start painting them. So I painted up a group of eight slingers using my beloved painting method by just using Shades / Washes / Inks.

Already early in January I painted some oldschool Orks and Gretchins from the Space Crusade (German name: Star Quest) board game. Star Quest is one of the games that took me into the hobby. I really like this old nineties style that those Games Workshop miniatures have. The Gretchins are a good example for this style. I finished six Gretchins and six Orks that I painted in yellow - the colour of the Bad Moons Ork clan.

Later I took some old Lord of the Rings miniatures to finish one of my open projects. I am a fan of the Lord of the Rings tabletop as I love the books and really like the game. For my Rohan army I still had to finish some Riders of Rohan with bows. They were nearly ready, painted with a method I used some years ago.

As my Rohan army desperately needed some characters to lead the troops I painted Erkenbrand on horse and on foot as one of the commanders using my standard painting method.
