I am getting back to work on building a game with the original Minifigs 1974 “Mythical Earth” (unlicensed Tolkien) figures, which were what I started my collection with...because there wasn’t anything else. These guys stand 16mm tall to the top of their hairy heads, and were sculpted before the green stuff technique was developed. So there wasn’t much of a face to work with. You young people are so lucky; we had to chew miniatures out of lead with our teeth. (Grumpy old man rant ....)
These guys came three to a strip for about 25 cents, as I recall. These represent one strip plus a stray spearhobbit from who knows where.
Dwarves vs Dragons
A 3d printable chess set featuring dwarves and dragons.
The classic match up of dwarves vs dragons is now available to 3d print as your own thematic chess set. Will the dwarves be able to reclaim their dwarven halls or will the dragon's reign of terror continue? The matter can only be settled on the chess board!

These are some minis I picked up in the discount bin of Leisure Hours Hobbies in the mid 90s. The sculpts I think are from 93. They've been hanging around on my paint stand for awhile, so I figured it time to finish them. These are also possibly the smallest minis I've painted yet.
Discussing the proper way of preparing fish...
I tried to give Sting on the left, a slight glowing effect.
I see Gollum's base could use a bit of touching up...arg.
And a guest appearance from the gnome from a Reaper Learn to Paint Kit, to demonstrate scale. (Sir Forescale seems to have wandered off on some manner of adventure...)
This is a Games workshop Mumak miniature that I bought used here awhile back. It was missing a lot of parts so I did some custom work. Here is the work in progress thread.
I interned to get some archers to ride in it in the future but these Uruk will work for the pictures.
Some 28mm horsemen to help give a sense of size. This is now probably my largest miniature, barely.
Thanks for looking!
I found this mumakil on the internet here recently. It is missing a lot of pieces, however I’m going to try to rebuild this thing. Here is my progress so far.
An oathmark dwarf for comparison, this thing is big!
Whoever assembled this thing glued the platform on sideways, with a VERY stout glue. In my efforts to remove it I ended up breaking it so it now has a pair of gaping holes in the bottom.
After trying to remove the platform pieces from the rest of the saddle I finically gave up and just ground them off, and glued the platform back on the right way.
The tusks has the ends broken off so I drilled some holes and inserted some styrene rod to give my milliliter something to grip to.
A pair of dowels sanded to shape serve as the front supports on the saddle.
And unfortunately he is missing his trunk, so I get to practice my sculpting skills.
I drilled some holes where the trunk goes so I can insert some wire to make an armature.
It’s the KRAKAPHANT
I’ll have to go look at some pictures at elephant trunks to see how long it should be.
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions they are more than welcome!
That is all for now thanks for looking!
