II/19c Seleucids

Hello all.  Here is a project that has been staring at me for weeks..ok months now and needed finished before I pack up to head home to the States.
 The army is made from mostly Essex.  Exceptions are the Elephant, SCH, PS, and WB...hmm ok maybe not mostly made up of Essex.  The EL and SCH are Old Glory.  The WB and two PS are Xyston.  Look fine to me....I have had this army in a bag since long before Xyston got around to making figures for it...darn-it
 I went with a red theme as you can tell.  The up side down anchor seemed appropriate.  I did however make a mistake...the pikes are to long for the box I transport figures in...hmm, guess they get to nap while traveling.
 Decided on two CAT instead of the KN.  I wanted to be able to use them for 2.2 and +....don't feel the 3KN fit the army as well.  PK line do not need rambunctious knight guys charging ahead and getting waxed.
 Not sure what the guy on the EL stand is doing...taking orders for take-out...seems relaxed considering the guy up top is jabbing at someone.
The ankle bitters...

Goblin HoTT_GW OOP

 Here is most of my Goblin HoTT list to be a matched pair with the Dwarfs.
The Hero stand with Standard bearer.  The fanatic along for the ride.  If you know me and my gamer name, "Gobbo the Great" then you would recognize this old Goblin figure as a D&D character from teenagehood.  I used him as my main character for years.  Re-found him.
 I intend to use the wolf riders as riders.  Originally, I thought Knights but then I looked at some Squig Hoppers and thought...Knights without lances.  So I will add them to the list soon.
 Skarsnik and Gobbla are the Magic user team.
 I wanted alot of Spear and Blade for this army.  I was considering them as Horde but had issues mounting them, maybe I will still.  Interesting, not sure why I just put two and two together and realized the depth of a Horde stand is 40mm....hmmmmm

 I have the Fanatics out as a Sneaker.  I just wanted them to pop out and attack a hero or mage.
 I have lots of Behemoth choices.  Here are two.  I think BoBo will stay with the Goblins and I will give the Trolls to the Orcs (coming soon)

 I would not have a army without at least one artillery piece,, given the choice!
Last but not least, the beast stand.

Dwarf Army!.  Here is my Dwarf HoTT Army.  I finally finished the last stands last night.  All the element can still be used in War Hammer Fantasy Battles.  Notice the stands have been cut out so the figures can be removed.  Additionally, the BD and Shooters fit in the ranks troop blocks for the other game.  All the figures are Games workshop, Citadel, Metal except for the guy in the pool.

General, Hero

Bolt Thrower, Artillery number One
Grudge Thrower, Artillery number Two.  I packaged a Goblin present to give back to the Goblin army.

 Three stands of Bd.  These are Iron Breakers. 
Shooters! Two stands of Shooters to augment the ART.

Flyer. This is a Gyrocopter.

 Lurker Number One, The Machine he is holding is missing the Drill Auger.  I need to find a screw to finish it.  In WarHammer, miners can have a digger as upgrade.  Here it is.

Lurker number Two.  OK, so this was really fun to build.  What a fantastic figure.  The Dwarf in the inner tube was purchased online.  The pool is made from green stuff in two layers.  I was concerned that the seam would leak when I filled the pool.  The Hose is a round plastic piece I wrapped around a brush to make the coil.  I made the ball of green stuff as well.  The water is of course finger nail polish.  Drys very well.  I put a sheet of plastic at the end of the hose to show the pool filling.
