Double figures

With a grunt of "It'll do!" I put down my brush and reached double figures of completed miniatures for 2018 and also completed the set of current characters (seven, plus a dog and a choice of two characters to replace the latest one Ed killed) for my currently-paused old-school D&D campaign, Averaigne.

The latest two figures are the (previously unknown to me) adventurer variant of Mimbrin from the Dwarf King's Court boxed set from 1982 - exactly the same figure but with a great big pack slung across his back - and a masked wizard that caused me much irritation to paint. Still, no regrets and no do-overs this year, so he'll have to face eldritch what-nots and delve into long forgotten dungeons just as he is!



Assuming that "Mimbrin" will take on an NPC role, the photo below shows the party at full strength.

    1. Cheers, Phil - there are a couple of in-jokes with colour selection, I have to admit.

    1. Thank you! I tried to get a bit of ruddy warmth into the skin tones for the first time and am quite pleased with it, even if it's perhaps too subtle.

    1. Thanks, Gareth, they're the typical bunch of misfits and wannabe heroes that every RPG group demands!

    2. It is fun bringing disparate models together like this. I'm currently building terrain and collecting/painting minis for Blood Eagle (dark age skirmish with a fantasy/mythological bent). Coupling old stuff like Meier's wonderful Fantasy Tribe Trolls with rather more recent Otherworld and Red Box sculpts is always fun! I've actually picked up some of the Oathmark plastic goblins too, which fit nicely with the above.
