About the Project

my first attempt to make 15mm army. the intention is to use these for different games warlords or erehwon, saga, thud & blunde. 15mm but also in 28mm I would use them as dwarfs (to tease my son 😁). the name of my fantasy army even has some real history background that I can use as history games. this is what i found: Belenos, Belenus or Beli Mawr, was the Celtic god of the sun. He was the Celtic god of air and healing, of archery, prophecy and music. He was honored on May 1, when the ancient Celts held the feast of Beltane. They then made big bonfires to promote the warmth of the sun. He also received votive gifts. His symbol was the horse and wheel, and he would drive the chariot through the sun. Belief in Belenos was very widespread, from present-day England to southern Gaul and northern Italy. Possibly the god Bel was the common god of the Celtic tribes in the area called Belgica. [1] Belenos was the Celtic image of Apollo, the son of Jupiter and Latona. Belenos was the husband of Belisama. The name also resulted in a feminine variant: Belena. The French place name Beaune is derived from this. Belenos has become known to the general public as one of the gods invoked in the Asterix comic series. the intention is to expand in the future with terrain, war machines and large monsters. but especially to improve my skills and learn new things from the hobby. I've never played a dungeon game that's one I'd like to try with these figures. maybe it's a good idea to try rangers or shadow deep, see what warren does 😁

so I made my flockbox twice the size. but you can even make it bigger if you want with a metal (do not use stainless steel this does not have a good result) plate the size that you want.
drill 5 holes 4 on each corner and 1 somewhere on the side where you will attach the clamp.
for the foot I used rubber feet that gives better grip.
 for the tuffs I used baking paper with undiluted wood glue, it is a bit difficult to remove the tuffs but it works if you do not use too small drops of glue.
this way you can easily make your own tuffs and flower tuffts.
for the flowers I used filter material that you find in the filters for water to purify the tap.
I then colored these spheres of different sizes with diluted acrylic paint and let them dry.
then tuff with super glue on top, dip in the color spheres and you have flower tufts.

1. clean up the figures
     it took a while 😁
2. I attached metal washers for the bases with super glue gel.
3. fix the miniatures on plastic drink glasses (do not look at the color, these were the cheapest) I attached the larger figures to pill jars, each time with poster putty.
4. in between I made test bases.
i use here for sifted bird sand.
cork (from IKEA).
coars peat dark & ​​light from woodland scenics.
glued with white glue.
grass tufs made with the flockbox 3 different colors.
for the paint I used vallejo dark sand 70.847.
and a dark brown wash self made brown and black ordinary ackerl paint that you find everywhere these pigments are coarser and spread the color more on the bases a bit as dry pigments.
all this in water and liguitex medium .
5. painting the figures.
many different colors of brown and grays of vallejo.
and red effect colors fresh blood and dry blood it is ultimately a wargam 🤪
6. last 3 layers of varnish.
