  1. Ready to protect the temple! (I don't know which temple, but they're protecting it.) My three favorites are the archer, the crossbowman, and the guy with the big mace.
  2. This is the second of two old Grenadier figures from the set 1502: "Robo Hunters" sculpted by Mark Copplestone. The 1980s vibe is strong with this one, and if that is not supposed to be Grace Jones I will eat my hat. I gave her semi-Egyptian makeup and an ankh tattoo because of course (The Nefertiti references are pretty obvious), and tried to stick with a 1980s color palette to go with the 1980s natural waist and shoulder pads. WIP thread (unfinished) here. The other figure in the set, the man, can be found h
  3. This mini has been with me for over 30 yrs unpainted - finally did it! I'm happy that I was able to finish it in only ~ 6hrs - really fast for me, and that I was able to stop 'fixing' it. I found it hard to attache the field grass this being my first time using it- any hints on how to better do this and keep the grass from leaning so much?
  4. These are from the old Grenadier set #1502 Robo Hunters from the Future Warriors range, sculpted by Mark Copplestone, a vision of the future from the 1980s. I wanted to paint up some PoC figures. The Grace Jones lookalike was an obvious choice, as was the glowering dude in dreadlocks. The teenager fits too. There's also a guy with some ludicrous hair but I didn't paint him this time. All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios. Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appre
  5. Some classics. So much smaller than the more modern minis I've been working with, picking out the details was a challenge. But it was lots of fun. Even researching for colors was a hoot, partly because of all the cultures these minis pull references. So politically incorrect, ha. Yay, fantasy. I wish I'd picked up more of this series back in the day.
  6. Pulled out one of the many in my old school collection and finally painted it up. Part of my New Year's resolution which is to not buy any new minis this year and paint what I already own, some of which goes back 30+ years. At some point I may put together a resolution WIP thread to help me stay focused. Mixed up somewhere in the depths of my cases are the people that came with this beast and someday maybe I'll get to them. If I can find them and all their parts!
  7. I could have sworn I already asked about these, but darned if I can find where. I got given a handful of old school lead figures from a couple of generous sources. Some of them I figured out immediately what they were or lucked into info on the Lost Minis Wiki. But these ones have me stumped, despite in some cases clear markings. May I ask for some help from the collective wisdom? I believe most of these to date from no later than 1991 or so. They have been primed and washed with a thinned brown to bring out detail. 1. Some sort of pretty early orc-goblins, no base markings (subsequently
  8. So the Pathfinder game was played last Saturday, and a friend from collage that still plays with us brought up a box of old lead that he was going to put on evil bay, and asked me if I wanted any of them..... (Anyone care to guess my answer?) So I refrained from taking the whole box and grabbed the following: Ral Partha: These critters are called 'Hexers' or something like that I believe R.Charrette, 1989 on the base These guys reminded me of Anhurians 1992 on base These guys had odd helmets that I kinda liked... R Charrette and 1989 on base again This
  9. I met my parents for dinner on Wednesday, and much to my surprise they handed me a box filled with old Minis. I mean, really old. Stuff I bought when I was a kid. So I thought I'd throw this out there, for the coolness factor, and also to see if anyone can identify these guys. First group shot - a bunch of Dragon men (I suspect they may be Dragonlance Draconians) a small dragon-like thing, and a Frost Giant with a broken weapon. Also, a robot: The Draconians's bases are stamped "Grenadier 1984," the Giant's is engraved the same, and the robot's is engraved with 1987. Secon
