Every year I put together a village using as many of my noncombative miniatures along with my Dwarven forge village a few pieces from my parents ceramic village and my old shops from the fire as she bears campaign
It may not be finished yet but its a good start to the holiday!
I assume that everyone is already aware that Midlam is running a new KS, but...
Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye. They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests. It can only be...
The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week. Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be. To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look. So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.
Guns, ninjas, hobbits, dogs, monkeys, pumpkins, and mancatchers.
Sure, you *say* you could otherwise do some conversion. But good luck finding a mancatcher *and* a monkey.
Stuff's in metal and cast in the USA. Magnets are from China, but they have multiple suppliers.
Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100.
There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder.
"After over three years in the making, we are proud to present you the Eternal Eight - a WORLD'S FIRST 3D mini war game with innovative real 3D RELIEF.
The goal of the game is to capture the enemy’s King. The advantages of Eternal Eight are the 3D castles, fortresses and villages with a myriad of traps, labyrinths and secret passages. All of the army bases (castles, villages, fortresses) are easy to assemble and move around.
The game can be easily incorporated into your existing game table setup or provide a great addon to some of your existing mini war games."
So I dug an old mini out of the bottom of my box of forgotten lead - the 1989 Firbolg by Ral Partha. This classic figure deserved better than being lost for a generation so I decided to paint it up and take a few photos on the way.
It was in fine shape except for the broken / missing handle and pommel for the sword, so I started with a repair job - pin it to win it.
A quick test of my sculpting skills, I used milliput to add a new handle over the pin. I gave the whole model a new prime with vallejo surface primer through my airbrush. Overall, not too bad and one quick mold line removal later and a touch up prime and it was ready for some color.
Time for getting some basic color on the model. I started with reaper golden shadow for the skin. It's a nice warm base to paint over, so I was pretty hopeful that it would provide the right base for the reaper warrior flesh I planned on using later.
Next up. some shadow. I used vallejo model air burnt umber for the shadows and for a first coat of the leather bits.
