Amazon Update #1

In addition to the Amazons that need to be rebased, I've discovered I have at least one hundred Amazons that still need to be painted, some are still on the sprue waiting to be assembled. Amazons from Wargames Foundry, Eureka, Fenryl, and Wargames Factory are in the "pile of shame." I need some diversity in… Continue reading Amazon Update #1

Rebasing Miniatures – the Amazons

Figures for To Be King - 2 units of Valkae Warriors & 1 unit of Archers Unless you are the rare (to me anyway) type of person who has the remarkable ability to plan for the future, you will at some point have to rebase some miniatures.

Elephants Three

I recently purchased one each of the three 28mm elephant poses from Acheson Creations. One elephant is advancing, one is charging, and one is walking. The elephants are cast in a resin and require minor assembly - ears and tusks need to be attached. I really like the poses and they are a fraction of… Continue reading Elephants Three

Though I painted the merchant some time ago, the two henchmen sat around partially… Continue reading Two Henchmen & a Chest

Lady in a Bathtub

In an episode I've written, I needed a lady in a bathtub to add interest to the miniatures I've assembled for the photos. A woman bathing has been a popular subject in art for hundreds if not thousands of years. There are several 28mm miniatures to choose from in varying degrees of nudity. I chose… Continue reading Lady in a Bathtub

Mistress of Time, Episode 3 A Carousing Story Though this Carousing Encounter does take place in a tavern, if you think all Carousing Encounters take place in taverns or inns, you a selling yourself short. The Carousing Encounter found in WHAT is the perfect catch-all encounter to use for all sorts of occasions and situations… Continue reading The Blue Goblin

New Year – New Project – Zandeland

Why Zandeland? Well, my jungle terrain is beginning to look a bit shabby so what better incentive for refurbishing existing terrain and building new terrain than to expand my African collection with new miniatures - the Azande! I know of only two companies who make 28mm figures of the Azande (both by the same sculptor):… Continue reading New Year – New Project – Zandeland
