I finally finished the basing and got some varnish on some vintage figures. These two are the veterans of the crew; they are Minifigs ME (Mythical Earth, AKA Lord of the Rings) figures from about 1974. The ME34 Ithilien ranger is masked in the sculpt; some of the Minifigs faces were a bit rudimentary, but not that much! He's from an eBay lot, since my brother retains (and uses) the originals that we had. The ME56 heavy goblin is one of our original figures, from Rider's Hobby Shop in Ann Arbor, ca.1975. I had some fun with his shield. I've got seven of them, and want to paint all the shields differently, but the rest of the goblins will probably be jealous of this one. I finished these two Heritage figures on a recent business trip, with my travel paint kit. On the left is a movie Boromir (catalog number 1750), which is actually a Classic Miniatures modern casting. He's the last of the nine Fellowship characters to be finished, not being my favorite. (I never liked Bakshi's depiction of Boromir, representative of the last great civilization in Middle Earth, as a horn-helmeted barbarian...) The figure on the right is a vintage cleric (1101), part of a pack of four expansion characters for the Dungeon boardgames, as best I can tell. Here's a group shot of the Fellowship, now that they are all finished...short people to the front!
