Just to Prove I'm Mad

As if proof was needed!

I have been working on these since I bought Clash OTF last week. I have had something of a long time love affair with 10mm figures ever since GW released Warmaster. So this decided me to have a go at this scale and to try and convert them from models I already had.

They are all converted or hand made except for the dreadnought from GW, which I am going to use as a Mech.

I built the two tanks a while back, but had never painted them. They are made from MDF, card, paper and cocktail sticks - well one actually.

The four units, not sure what they will be yet, but they could be space pirates.
They are all made by converting Irregular Miniatures, Greek Hoplite and Celt warrior figures that I bought 7 years ago , but never painted.

Wookies looking a bit ghost like.

They looked like this: I actually used the one on the far left for them all, even the Wookies!

Top left: Gallic/Ancient British naked fanatics (TR11) Bottom left: Gallic Warriors and Standard Bearer (TR12  Right: Early Imperial Archers and Signifier (TR6 TR3)
I used the celts below to create one unit, the first I did.

Next I want to create some characters, then an alien force.


  1. Wait, so you built your own 10mm army? That is insane and also completely awesome.

    Can't get much more rogue trader feeling than that!

    1. Thanks Ivan, but its all your fault :-) you keep producing interesting games that I want to play. I really enjoyed making these although my skills are not up to it, they will do for me. Want to create an alien force next to play against, they will take me longer, planning them this weekend, when I can. Thanks for the game, enjoying reading it so far and looking forward to playing.

    2. Can't wait to see what you come up with :-)

      I think they look quite good!
      Obviously smaller scales are more forgiving even if you do make a mistake or a conversion is kind of hamfisted, because it's easier to cover with paint, but that's not such a bad thing.

      Where did the dreadnought come from? Epic?

    3. Yep the dreadnought is from epic 40k from a very long time ago, that's been in a box for 17 years at least, will be nice to see it used.
      I am quite happy with how they came out, never tried before so all good fun, look forward to making some leaders soon.
