my first battlelore set is finished! Fri, 31 October 2008 14:19
why do i say first? well beacuse I'm a painter for hire, this set will soon be on it's way to the marry old UK. and i hope to paint up a few more sets if anyone else is interested. Send me a PM if your interested.

images are shown in the order i painted the miniatures.

My custom made storage tray, this will be given to the new owner of the miniatures

Boy there sure are a whole bunch of these guys

look for more posts for more images

overall i think the miniatures in battle lore look fantastic when painted. personally i would have liked the miniatures to share a more consistent scale. Green humans are large compared to blue, blue/green goblins are small compared to red and archer goblins.

With one whole battle lore set sold I'm looking forward to painting some other games.

let me know what you guys think of the paint work!

(this is mostly a repost from the FFG board)

I loved the look of these simple two toned knights

I'm very happy with the goblins, for these miniatures I mostly ignored their flag color in order to make them stand out from the humans on the battle field.

two goblets, it took me a long time to figure out how i wanted to paint these. Once I saw the back of the deployment deck I knew what they should look like

of all the miniatures in the set I'm most proud of the dwarfs. they have unique colors and i think they work very well together

TylerTT your painting is astounding!

Caught a glimpse of a dwarf - you didn't post a pic focussing on the dwarves but the one I saw looked spectacular!

I don't have facility to PM at the moment but I would be interested in hearing how much you would charge to paint up a set.

By the way I think the archers are great - if you think there's something missing maybe try different hair colours to differentiate them a little? And maybe a little more red in the dwarves hair???

thanks for the complements

this set was sold for $650

if you cant PM Me feel free to e-mail me at

Tyler(at)tylertinsley.com

My dissatisfaction with the archers was they came out to dark for my taste. my next set will likely use lighter colors for the whole army.
