Dire Wolves (WQ)

I'm staying focused on Warhammer Quest for the moment - this morning I finished painting these 1D6 Dire Wolves.  Being the owner of an Alaskan malamute, I opted for sled-dog colour schemes, rather than the all-grey/brown/black/white that I often see on wargame wolves.

These are yet more brilliant figures from the Copplestone Castings 15mm Barbarica range.  Dire Wolves do not appear in the Warhammer Quest bestiary, but I'll use the Warhounds stats for them.  I imagine that they could either be a wild pack which shelters in the dungeon, or semi-domesticated by Chaos Marauders or other villains.  Below is a size comparison photo, showing an unfortunate Savage Orc cornered by the pack:

Cave Troll (WQ)

Yesterday I finished this Cave Troll for 15mm scale Warhammer Quest.  I'm quite pleased with how the paint job came out.  This is yet another fantastically detailed miniature from the Copplestone Castings 15mm Barbarica range - sold as 'Snow Trolls'.

I've included a size comparison photo above, showing the Cave Troll squaring-off against one of my Savage Orcs.

Progress on 3D dungeon sections (WQ)

Here's an update on my progress with building & painting 15mm scale 3D Warhammer Quest dungeon sections.  I have a couple more rooms on the go at the moment, but below are all the sections that I have fully textured & painted.  I'm looking forward to putting together the more ambitious Objective Rooms, starting with the Fighting Pit.

More Savage Orcs (WQ)

Sticking with my 15mm Warhammer Quest project, I've now finished 1D6 Savage Orc archers.  Again, these are from the fantastically sculpted Copplestone Castings Barbarica 15mm range - 'Pict Archers'.  I love the detail on these tiny figures - right down to human skulls hanging from belts!

Below are a couple photos showing the Orc archers next to the Savage Orcs with clubs that I painted in January:
