Roman Legionaries for Broken Legions

As part of my ongoing, soon to encompassing most of the world and multiple eons of history, horror project; I've painted up 5 Romans for "Broken Legions".  These chaps will see service against all sorts of horrors including Cthulhu and various other mythologies.

I painted them with muted colors, in keeping with their somewhat hidden purpose.  Their shields are painted with the "Evil Eye" to assist in repelling...well, evil spirits.  I've decided that they're remnants of the IX Legion, roman commanders using the reported destruction of the IXth as a cover for the creation of these hell fighters.

Zombicide: Black Plague Heroes

I have a bad habit of buying hybrid boardgames with a metric shed load of miniatures in them...Then wanting to paint all of them.  I backed the Zombicide: Black Plague kickstarter about 3 years ago before I deployed.  When I returned home, two big boxes were sitting there loaded to the gills with Z:BP stuff, and here it is 3 years later and I've not painted much.  Here's four more finished though! 

2 Knights and a very angry Nun

Warrior Wizard

The Z:BP figures really are A LOT of fun to paint, and I plan on using them (like almost all my figures) in a multitude of games.

MOP - Intro 2. Introducing Sinead Blair and Peter Fairbanks

Two more character figures finished for my Ministry of the Occult and Paranormal project.

Mrs. Sinead Blair - Note the green ribbon round her neck.
 Mrs. Blair is of Scotch-Irish lineage, an expert as such in Fairy Lore and Magick.  Described as a gentle almost ethereal lady, her calm demeanor covers a core of iron will.  She is a member of the British Contingent of the MOP. 

Mr. Peter Fairbanks
Mr. Peter Fairbanks is a former British Indian Army officer who served on the Northwest Frontier.  He is now the leader of the British Contingent of the MOP.

Both of these figures are from West Wind and required barely any flash removal and they painted up very well.  I don't feel that I did Mrs. Blair justice. 

As I paint more for my Gothic Horror project, I'm getting close to having the figures needed for a first game.  Now to just get some terrain going.
