My Eyes...They Burn!!

Yeah, so I know I have taken a short break from my Space Wolves Codex Review, but I promise to get back to it in a day or two.  I am currently working furiously to finish up several commission jobs that I need to get clear of.  One such job is a Warmaster Dark Elf army.  Ugh..... For those of you who don't know, Warmaster is a 10mm fantasy game.  You read correctly, 10mm.  These minis make FoW look big.  It is a GW product and only GW could say, "Hey we have these miniature wargames, but what if we made a more miniature wargame!?"  It is killing my eyes.  Take a look.

Here is a large chunk of the army.

That is 4 units of spears, 2 units of crossbows, 2 bolt throwers, and command models...and they all take up roughly the area of a dollar bill or two.  They are simply tiny.  Since they are tiny, they aren't terribly hard to paint since you can't get too detailed, but man they just kill my eyes. 
Here is a picture of some spears next to a penny for perspective.  it gives you are a really idea of how small these models are. 

Next up on the docket are 2 units of cold one knights and a unit of dark riders.  Hopefully, my eyes won't be bleeding by time I am finished. 

Anyone out there play Warmaster?  How does it differ from WFB?

Wow, I thought my buddy and I were the only ones who still had a warmaster army, let alone knew about the game, lol.

I play undead, so they are very easy to paint. I did enjoy the game but it's been years since I've played.

Can't really say how it differs from Fantasy battle as I haven't played that game yet (but those Ogres are sure making that difficult, haha)
