Ah, the good old days, when 25 millimeters actually meant something!  Did you have these for decades or have you recently com upon them Rob?

 

It’s hard to say. I *think* these are ones that my brother handed back to me after decades, but I do have 6 strips of them (and their counterparts, the better armed hobbits, ME48 or 49) that have been scavenged more recently from the Bay of Ease...

I have some hobbits from Heritage, the Lord of the Rings figures that are hobbit village folk, I think from Bilbao’s Farewell Party, but they are Michael Thomas castings, not originals. I do want to paint them up some day when I get the time to!

      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...)

      The last of 72 painstaking acquired  1974 vintage Minifig goblins have finally been finished.  This batch of a dozen went very quickly as the third batch of them I’ve done this month.  I have ambitions to play some D&D as we played in in 1976, but with more and better miniatures, so I based this last crew individually for flexibility.  I am tempted to do a grumpy old man routine about how you young people don’t appreciate how good you have things in sculpting and miniatures choice these days, but I won’t.  I suspect that everyone does appreciate it.   Nevertheless, like clanking away on my manual typewrite is fun, it’s been interesting to see what I could do with these guys, a process made much easier by the use of modern tools such as acrylic paint and a wet palette.

      After yesterday's work on the Bones 4 scenics, I dug around and finished off the first of a set of resin buildings I got from an Apocalypse Miniatures Kickstarter a year or two back:
       

       

       
      I also finished basing up a seriously vintage (ca. 1974) Minifig Ent:
       

       

       
      And, finally touched up basing and finished off my Gencon speed paints:
       

       

       
      From left to right, a Word preliminary round figures, a Reaper preliminary round, a Wyrd final round, and a Reaper final round. (So, 45 minutes on the preliminaries and 60 minutes on the finals...I added names to the two preliminaries; retitled the Word final, and attached the Reaper final to a Frostgrave-themed snow and rock base.)

      My significant other is in a songing competition this weekend, and I’m along for moral support. 
       
      Knowing that I would have some quiet time, I brought my travel paint kit and some miniatures. On the left are five Broadsword rangers, and on the right three Minifigs true orcs. The orcs are part of my Mythical Earth warbands project, but the Broadsword figures are a one-off.
       
      I didn’t have any Broadsword back in the day. Apparently none of the hobby shops I visited stocked them. My first encounter with them was in larger eBay lots while fishing for other old figures. I ended up with four of these archers in a large lot early in my eBay history, and then went looking for the command/personality pack later.
       
      I painted the swordsman/captain and the ranger-bard last summer.
       

       

       
      Now that they are almost all done, I hope to get them out as a unit of scouts in a Dragon Rampant game soon.

      So here's my final for this unexpected snow day.  Three stands go to the Dux Bellorum project, which I hope to play with this weekend, and the two on the right are part of the vintage Minifigs Middle Earth war bands  project.  As the Soviets are supposed to have said, quantity has a quality of its own...
