Pendraken Dwarves Armed With Axes

With my painting slowly progressing on my Lifeguard Cuirassier unit, I've momentarily turned my attention towards a 'spot of fantasy' and based twenty Dwarves, predominantly taken from the “Pendraken Miniatures” code FD6. Initially purchased as part of a substantial pre-show “Warfare” order two years ago, the axe carrying dwarves were bought in order to play a series of 10mm games using the “Mantic Games” rule set “Kings Of War”. However the rather large project (also involving Elves) never really got going past this first small regiment of dwarves.

Work In Progress: Pendraken Cuirassiers

I've finally finished painting my first wing of King’s Lifeguard Musketeers. The 24 English Civil War 10mm models by “Pendraken Miniatures” have taken me approximately a fortnight to complete, rather longer than I anticipated. But they now only require basing before they’re ‘table ready’.
To be honest the slight problems I've had painting some of these models has made this mini painting project a somewhat disheartening experience, so before I turn my attention to the second wing of Foot Battle Line, I'm going to temporarily turn my attention towards painting a small unit of cavalry for the Royalist Army’s Battalia of Horse. This unit of Heavy Horse will consist entirely of models from code EC11 Cuirassier; with the 12 horsemen forming the Royalist army’s single Lifeguard Cuirassier unit.

Further Work In Progress: Pendraken Musketeers

I'm close to finishing the painting on my first unit of 24 Royalist English Civil War Musketeers for “Pike & Shotte” by “Warlord Games”. Consisting of a mixture of 10mm models from "Pendraken Miniatures" codes EC3 Musketeers, Cap and EC14 Musketeers, Hat, this foot battle line is proving rather ‘tough going’ though as a result my difficulty in painting the ‘forward firing’ pose models.
In addition I'm being distracted with my 30mm models (see
