I am not sure who the manufacturer is of this pirate woman miniature. I picked her up at Salute 2007. But I do think she rivals my favorite female miniature. And I am quite please with how I painted her. Esspecially her face turned out quite well. I have named her…

Jonny IS breaking my own rules about living pirates having bright colours. There are two reasons for that 1) I wanted him to look more like his movie equivalent and 2) I started painting him before I laid down that ground rule. To give him even more ties to the…

I have bought a lot of pirate miniatures at the last two Salute shows so No Quarter is the natual driver for combining these figures in to practical use. While I want a live pirate army, I got almost as many undead pirates so I want to make use of them as well. I…

When you first sit down to make a No Quarter/ No Limits force the options and posibilites seems, well, without limits. But while it is tempting to make a Space Marine/ Khador/ Grymm force, it is a good idea to keep it simple to start with. And working structured helps…

The Dedlock is one special lady and to support this she is painted in a very unique way compare to the rest of the Saint John force because I wanted her to stand out as not being part of the army but rather an individual who had choosen to join…

First unit to follow the new paintscheme. They were a lot faster to paint than the previous Banes and to be honest I think they turned out better. In fact, my Saint John Banes won the Miscellaneous Class at Salute 2004. Check out Class 6 – 1st – Banes – Robert Framsgard. Yes…

I painted the Banger like a bloke who doesn’t care about anything. The weird mixture of clothes (camouflage T-shirt and shiny leather pants, not the best combo). Finally I gave him a farmer’s tan (or Farmer Arms depending where in the world you are) because being as good as he…

The Banes are the very core of any Forsaken force so I want the Banes to have the base colours and nothing else. Bane Leader Yes, the Bane Leader miniature was fine as it came, but with two heads in the Saint Mark blister I couldn’t resist the temptation to…

A really gritty mechanich look with blue overalls and a heavy leather apron and ofcourse the most have dirty white t-shirt. Finally I painted a small red tatoo on the back of his head and painted his ear ring in a bright jade colour so although he looks like he…

The sister’s colours are way off the Forsaken colourscheme and at first it did bug me a bit, but having played with her, it seems quite fitting A) because she is a super nurse so white nurse outfit makes sense and B) what she does is radically different from the…

I know you are suppose to paint a regular trooper as the first mini in any army (especially when it is for a new gaming system) in case you get the colourscheme wrong. I guess this is even more true when you have decided to learn a new techique as…

Saint Mark’s Forsaken Colourscheme The general colours for my Saint Mark troopers are brown and gold with a very light brown/ bone coloured cape (if applicable). The browns are to give the army a medieval feel, The gold is there to give them a feel of being a well off faction (posible…
