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.

Savage Beauty & Chicks in Chainmail!

Happy New Year, everyone!  Things are marvelous, though a bit chilly, at Floozy Manor.  I thought I'd start the year off with a review of a boxed set of figures from Reaper Miniatures.  The initial boxed set, "Savage Beauty", and the individual figures began appearing shortly after the turn of the century, 2001-2003, and the… Continue reading Savage Beauty & Chicks in Chainmail!
