6mm Microworld Barbarians – for a Dragon Rampant/Warmaster Chaos Army

Some of you may well remember this unit of Pikemen Pikemen and may well have wondered if there would be any more of this most diminutive of scales in the fantastical realms. Well there is and it comes in the form of some rather lovely, if very beefy, Microworld Barbarian Warriors who come under the Dark Alliance oeuvre. They’ve sworn their souls to Khorne, because I thought red would be nice, and I’ve mounted them on 10mm x 40mm mdf strips since it made painting a hell of a lot easier – rather than painting them separately and then mounting them in two ranks on 20mm x 40mm bases.

The unit represents half a pack of figures (along with a couple of command figures) and I’ve mounted the other half ready to paint. I’m thinking of doing the next ones as Nurgle followers. I bought one of the bundle packs (a couple of years ago now – and was taken a bit by surprise with import duty – booooooo to import duty) so I’ve got pretty much everything needed for a sizeable army.

Just what I need, another project.

Current projects are (in no particular order):

6mm mechanicus

6mm fantasy chaos

10mm sculpting and painting

15mm sci-fi

And any 28mm stuff I get distracted by.

 

Oh well. Variety is the spice of life and all that.

 

Thanks for looking.

6mm Warmaster and Dragon Rampant Pikemen

Well here they are, the baccus6mm Late Medieval Pikemen that have been oh so delayed on account of my reluctance to spend the time to get them based. I decided to use a couple of different basing options – the Warmaster system of three 40mm x 20mm bases:

Warmaster Pike

The second was a new one for me. I’ve read the Dragon Rampant rules and think they look really nice and streamlined, perfect for some diverting solo games. The rather┬ásimple mechanic of dice to keep track of unit strength looked as if it could be integrated onto a base in a similar way that some make dice-holding counters. After a bit of exploration I found that Pendraken make a rather excellent range of movement trays and dice holders:

Dragon Rampant Pike

There we are! I’m quite chuffed with the results and am looking forward to my pimped up crossbowmen joining them on the field of battle.

Thanks for looking.
