Warlord Provides! After getting a Community Spotlight on Beasts of War earlier this month, I thought it was high time to press pause on painting the ASOIAF backlog and to continue my efforts on this project. To that extent, I went ahead and ordered two boxes of Warlord’s Landwehr Regiment. I’m not sure why they are marked as regiments, but for my purposes each box represents a battalion.
The Prussians are coming It’s time to branch out from collecting and painting just Games Workship models. Goodbye Stormcast Eternals, hello Napoleonics. I started by painting a regiment of Prussian Line Infantry that I got from Perry Miniatures as the 1st Silesian Regiment (on a whim, because the facings looked nice). This was really just to dabble a bit in historical miniature wargaming. Now though, I want to add to the list and the 1st Silesian was part of the 11th Brigade in the II Corps at the 1813 Battle of Leipzig.
Painted and based This brings the total to two Lannister Guardsmen units, as well as Tyrion and Cersei of which I’ve not taken any pictures. Next up: A unit of Knights of Casterly Rock (Or The Mountain, but probably the Knights…)
What have I done?! So a while back I backed the Kickstarter for the boardgame A Song of Ice and Fire by CMON Games, which is not based on the TV series Game of Thrones, but the original books. I thought the models looked great1, so I splurged and backed whatever the highest tier was that would get me all the special Kickstarter-only minis. And now they just arrived.
