Half-Baked Men-At-Arms

Good day to all again. I apologize for the really late entry.
Its been a long and occupied week that I had to attend to many stuff in life and as such, I am overdue on the entry.

Nonetheless, here are a few of the assembled Men-at-arms that I have taken. This is the continuation to what I have been working on in terms of the Bretonnian Men-at-arms from the last post.

What you see are just a small part of whats left to be done, on top of the basing of these figures.

Here we have the Men-at-arms amidst the stormy clouds.

And now, its clear skies again. HAHA


After painting these models and comparing them with the older more expensive Men-at-arms models, I must say, while the older one looks more smaller and clean cut and cute in a way, these new Men-at-arms follow their new Bretonnian Theme of being more grittier and more rough cut. Furthermore, with the advancement in technology for cutting and molding plastic, these figures had more definition and I could play around more with the contours than the old ones.

But it isn't just Games Workshop that has improve in its plastic mold cutting. Many tabletop games have really high end detail plastic molds. Even my new model kits today are vastly improved compared to its predecessors. And this doesn't just apply to Plastic; Metal castings have been way better and more detailed then before too.

One thing that still bothers me though, with the advancement in technology and the increase in precision details of figures and kits, Why does GW still raise up their price extravagantly while other competitors of similar correlation don't?

On a side note, Other than Warhammer and Military Models, I have been doing other types of model kits and figures, so there will be more variations soon.

Once again, I apologize for the slow posting, But there will be more to come on a regular basis.

Stay tune and cheers :)


  1. Pinting is not bad. Though some parts aren;t that smooth.

    And I totally agree with you ont he Stupid Games Workshop Price Hike. Pretty Farked up!.

  2. I think we all can agree on GW being a real ass on the price hike.
    But what can we do when they wont budge? =S
