IR Pallandt Finished

IR Palladant

Once again a bought commission saves lives.
Ahoy bloggers!
 I've been torn away from my blog and table top gaming for a spell as I've been quite busy at work. More on that later.  I'm back in the saddle and feverishly painting and preparing for Pacificon game convention, upcoming in a week, where I'll be running two large Imaginations battles.


The Unit Formerly know as Pallandrome


The unit in full. Again taken with my phone. Need to get that camera fixed.
When I started this unit, I was parodying my pal Saxon Dog (aka David Imrie)  and a unit he was painting in 28mm. I ended up making my own flags at first, but then thought- Ooh why not contact Iain Duncan at Flags of War and see if he can make me some Imaginations scale flags. Iain was super accommodating (had nothing to do with  one upping the Dog, I'm sure...) and sent me over some beautiful flags poste haste!

Long story short, I've finished the unit before Imrie, so am posting first! Sure he may have painted up a couple of other armies in the mean time...
New bases with scrolls to place unit names. And those lovely Flags of War Flags!

This was a fun challenge, and I hope to do more of this type.

Pacificon

As mentioned next week is Pacificon game convention here in Northern California. The South bay Game Group of which I am a proud member puts on several splendid historical and fantasy games at this con, and I strongly encourage you to come and play.

Under coating with a flat earth type color.
For the bigger battles I am to run, I needed a new larger game mat, so have one in progress. This guy is 6 x 9 feet. The green is a bit more on the blue side that I would normally use, but matches well with the color from the rattle can that I've been using on my bases.

While at it, I started work on a new photo background for my friend Stanley (which can be seen in the above shots).
More WIP. Second color on. Next is some drybrushing.

I also painted up a photo backdrop on 100% rag paper

That's all for now- back to the painting table for more adventures. In the mean time, keep your paints wet and your Series 7's sharpened to a point!

    1. Thanks Arch Duke! Figured I had enough "imaginations" units, I could mix in some more "historical" ones. Looking at doing Regiment De Navarre and D'Anjou next. If you have any good uniform info, I'm always looking

  2. Thomas, is War of ImagiNations kid friendly? My kids have been continually asking about Wooden Wars (which doesn't seem to be being offered at PacifiCon) but I saw this...

    1. Kalanar, Sadly I don't have time to run a Wooden Wars game at Pacificon this year. Wars of Imaginations games are for more mature kids (12 yrs +) and "grown ups". Looking forward to seeing you at the con!
