Quadling Lancers and Other Stuff

I posted some pictures earlier this weekend of my Knights of Renown for Wars of Ozz. We were supposed to have a Wars of Orcs and Dwarves play test this weekend, but many of the usual suspects were unable to participate and I didn’t have a quorum. I used the time to paint figures instead, this time a unit of Quadling lancers.

Quadling Lancers ride to the sound of the guns!

According to the canon, quailing lancers have orange coats. Orange is often a hard color for coverage. These took pretty much a whole weekend to complete.

Note the Sally 4th leader stands for Wars of Ozz. They hold the leader attribute chips to make them easier to remember in the heat of battle.

Normally on cavalry figures, the mounts paint pretty quickly. Because the legs were molded to the mounts, and the upper bodies were separate castings, the mounts actually took longer to paint than the bodies. I am happy with the way they turned out. I need to add flags and pennants.

I also had a chance to finish up a couple of other figures.

Three-headed troll.

This is an old figure that I recently found on Ebay for a reasonable price. I will use this is Wars of Orcs and Dwarves in a troll unit.

William Tell

I found this figure on a site with free stl files. I printed this at 0.15mm resolution with my Prusa Mini. I got a fair amount of “stringing.” The figure is acceptable at gaming distance (about three feet), but on close inspection, the details are mushy. I don’t see myself printing a lot of figures, but since no one seems to make a William Tell figure, this is an acceptable substitute for metal.

The Knights of Renown

I spent part of Saturday finishing the Knights of Renown for Wars of Ozz. These are Munchkins if service of Glenda and the Quadlings. The unit was a gift from Zoraster the Wizard after his treaty with Glenda.

To give them a little more visual interest, I decided to paint the lances in red and white stripes. I have seen some jousting lances like this in pictures or movies.

In this image you can see one of the Sally 4th leader bases. These have a space in them for a small piece of MDF with the leader’s attribute printed on it. This makes it easier to remember specific leader attributes during a game.
In this view you can see the sliver swans of Glenda on the Knights’ shields.

Desert Nomads for Wars of Ozz

I recently finished this unit of desert nomads mounted on goats for the Wars of Ozz rulebook. Enjoy.

This picture shows the really cool leader bases that Sally 4th produces. They have holders for markers that indicate the regimental leaders’ skills.

Recent Wars of Ozz Painting

I am busy trying to get the balance of my Ozz figures painted. Some are needed for illustrations in the rule book. Others will give me one (or more) of each type of unit so that when we are allowed to have conventions again I’ll be ready to run games that show off the breadth of the figure line.

Pollywumpus from the Swamps
Dire Wolves
Evora’s Bodyguard

I am really enjoying painting these figures, but I have a large mountain of them between now and the next convention.
