NEW BACKDROP FINISHED

I've just finished painting a new backdrop for my forthcoming Conan and Lord of the Rings projects  on the reverse of my more rural 18c countryside backdrop.
A distant mountain range with a lilac sky (many good fantasy skies appear to be this colour)

Frazetta's Conan in battle with Frost Giants

Safe and Sound on the Sundial by Rodney Matthews (I have this poster on the attic door)


I also did a couple of desert backdrops too, as I hope to start painting some Stygians soon.


Here's how the backdrops stay up. They are made of 3mm MDF


the other more rural side

they come apart for easy storage (or at least are meant too, but the feet get a bit stuck sometimes).
I need to make some fantasy terrain now in a Swords and Sorcery style.

A NEW REGIMENT FINISHED

Just finished and photographed a new 54mm regiment for my Imagi-nation Trompenburg. More pics here.

Next in line are some Jaeger (AIP British infantry) limbering up on the painting table and awaiting a delivery of sabres from Helmet Soldiers.
