Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Lovely job on that Coatl. :D Have to get me one of those some day. Your Bizaza are long sent, so you should get them this week as the postal systems settle down to normal again.


I have a mid sized decent haul of classic Slann minis left over from when I started back in 3rd Edition. The devil is getting them painted quickly when the mood takes you to paint frog people. Just waiting for the mood to take me so I can finish off that unit of Cavalry now. Thanks to some recent editions I should be able to muster 12 of the old 2 part ones - it may take me 3 years to finish painting them all though!

I don't plan to sculpt any cold ones at present although I do know a chap who is getting some Slann and at least one Cold One commissioned by a certain famous Oldhammer sculptor so we may end up with a nice option for some extra cavalry with a bit of luck this year. As there are many riding lizards available from various manufacturers I prefer to focus my sculpting efforts to the more niche things such as Slaves, Totem Warriors, Spawn Bands, Bull Slann etc. We will also have some nice Slann themed scenic items for you in the next Kickstarter.

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Thanks Ketil Trout (hope to see some Greenskin updates soon!) and thanks Otto- the Frog warriors are assembled and ready to paint once the Alligator warriors are done. These are really amazing miniatures - and fit really well with the Slann - perfect for Bull Slann or Spawn Band or to bolster some of my depleted shock elite units. Really looking forward to see the new releases in this new year. That sounds exciting also with new Slann cavalry coming...i hope i dont miss this. Here a couple of photos of the Frogs - excited to paint these - the shields are great - as are the double handed weapons - (i kept one with the eagle head to put on the Eagle warrior standard and added a couple of miliput shields to allow extra single hand weapon option).

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

The Alligator Warriors join the Slann ranks, still need to make a standard bearer (need to buy some things from independent shop here to make the Alligator totem/fetish), then add 2 non alligator Slann to get the unit up to 15. Does anyone here know any German based 3rd edition players? Seeing all the great figures and posts on this forum make the Slann hungry for battle.

This is a great looking unit. I am really looking forward to the totem bearer. Sadly Berlin is a little far (I´m from Southern Germany), otherwise we could have made a game or two.

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

In Ireland my group is basically from the four corners of the Island. We have to travel to play but it's worth it. Meeting at conventions is a good way to get a game in with a like minded player.


Thanks for the complements about the Bizaza, I will pass them along to Doti also, who sculpted the weapons for those guys. :)

It's cool seeing them on classic 25mm squares, I designed them to rank up in unit formation like that on squares but I actually never based any of my own painted ones on them! :roll:

Now I am veering towards using hex bases as you get the benefit of them looking better in skirmish games and can still rank them up easily.


That purple skin with turquoise aligator skin armour combo is really nice!

Looking forward to seeing more progress on this army. :)

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Thanks so much Jonas, this is the third year of painting Slann - encouragement highly apreciated! Hi Hooded Man, hope the Chaos are going well, looking forward to seeing more. I cant drive , so South Germany might be complicated to get to with box of Slann on the train. Someone here in Berlin has started to paint their Oldhammer Dwarf army - so hope by the end of the year to get some battles - maybe one day we can organize a small Oldhammer day in Germany. Otto - the first 4 Bizaza are painted (one is purple) and ranked up with 2nd and 3rd edtion Slann next to me now on the table...they are wonderful and a joy to paint! The fish club weapons are great. Just going to get the Human Slaves out the cupboard and add some war paint to them.

You will soon have the option of reinforcing those old models with some new sculpts that (I hope) will match in nicely style wise with the old Perry ones as I am sculpting human slaves at the moment. Nearly finished the first one (spear and shield) , should have some pics soon. ;)
I plan on sculpting enough of these guys to make a decent looking unit.

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Very nice painting again. You have now a fantastic collection. If one day you come to France ( Paris) , give me a call and bring your army with you , or part of it :lol: and you will find three enthousiastic French players with Slanns ready to fight a civil war.

The new models are fantastic proxies for a Slann army. I don't start the painting of my own Slann yet, I have a Fimir army to finish first.
