..........OK not exactly new news I grant you, but actually I want your help. A few days ago I mentioned I feeling the urge to paint some fantasy figures but had no real hope of getting a game with them, well that remains the same but the urge to paint one off figures is mounting. Not that this will mean lots of hours each week painting up the figures but I would not mind getting a figure or two a month painted totally outside the usual mix that would build up to a fair group of figures that one day will get used in some Roleplay games...maybe.
So this is where you come in. I have a bunch of cleaned up orcs to paint, also a few character figures but I want to broaden the scope and need pointing in the direction of some Fantasy figures that fit my idea of how I want them to look like.
I am no real fan of the over heroic sizing, I want my figures to look more normal/ OK barbarian's will be covered in muscles and not a lot else but none of this giant sized weapons for all rubbish, lets keep things in proportion.
So any suggestions on suppliers? I don't want to pay the earth for the monsters and would like to stay reasonable for the adventurer types but would splash a bit more for a really good looking figure after all I am not going to go crazy at this right?............
Just to be clear I don't plan to effect my production rate for Project Waterloo, nor do I want it to dent my time on Matt's figures or my other scales, it's just something I want to dabble at when I want to stretch my legs a little.
I also plan to get rid of the few Shadow Run figures I still have and will add them to my Wargames Community Currency page looking for a trade for some Fantasy figures that I can use, so keep an eye open for that if it's your bag, or jump in and ask, my e-mail address is in my profile.
Talking of that page, I already have up a number of items including an Anglo Saxon 6mm Baccus Army and will be adding a couple of boardgames which need to go somewhere they have a chance of being played.
