The Battle Masters project begins in earnest.
October 21st, 2019
I recently picked up a used but complete(ish) copy of Battle Masters to play with the kiddo after seeing someone's
painted Empire figs from the set... I saw the figs, looked into the game again after all of these years, thought about
how awesome those card-based turns were, and checked out ebay. The figs are cheap if you're patient, and the games I've
had were a lot of fun. The ogre is amazing, the cannon is hot garbage, so naturally I pushed around the Empire troops,
constantly getting wiped out by the Chaos army. It was so much fun that naturally I decided to paint my Empire men-at-arms
as fodder to so many Chaos warriors and orcs, and then I started painting Chaos warriors, and buying extra figures, and
here were are. I have the first unit done which you can see in the Battle Masters Image Gallery.
I've also posted a different picture of the same figures in the Warhammer
because I will also use them for that game as well... if I ever play that game again anyway :) Next up are
the Chaos warriors. I've decided that the fantastic Chaos warriors and knights from the Battle Masters game will do double
duty as vampire warrior units in my Kings of War undead army. I've been looking for suitable vampire figures for that since I
started that project, and was never happy with any of the options: warhammer figs our simply too wild for me these days, reaper figs
are kinda cheesy, and I don't really like the Mantic figs. The Chaos knights and warriors though, they are fantastic, and so
I'll paint them up in the style of my undead and they should do well! Until then.
