|Standard Bearer on Foot, its too much of risk only doing the mounted one so Two Standards it is, minor conversion on the Standard Bearer , weapon, shield, banner top, I'm doing my Royal Guard in a somewhat non traditional color scheme.|
|All the older metal AoD for me thanks.|
that's it..the look great already with zero additional detailing...yeah mounting them on Dragon Forge bases is a luxury but I bought a bunch of stuff from him when he had the buy two , get one free sale in December. Anyway 36 of these models is the deal in the Hobbit Box, as these guys have a multiple uses for me from a Moria army Idea I am kicking around for next fall, to just an nice horde of generic fantasy guys, Goblins, Mutants, Morlocks, whatever.
Finally a blast from the past, This Two headed Giant is in the "Old School Miniatures" category
This Grenadier Ettin is from 1986. Thats past the window of my initial collecting as youth which was 80% Grenadier stuff from 1979-1983 (the rest being Heritage). I picked this guy a year or so go on ebay when I found a guy selling about 10 boxes from this Dragon Lords line still shrink wrapped uncovered from some long forgotten cache..the bidding was fast and furious..I think all the Giants from this "Giants Club" where there, I managed to score this one and some cool armored goblins. Anyway this was a experiment in some glazing techniques I wanted to try..not quite done yet, he's close...he'll make his final appearance this year once the LAF LPL & gets rolling, Then he'll be living in my slowly growing Skirmish Dungeon,
I'll be back soon with more HC Campaign results and more painted figures ASAP.
