GAH!!! NOTHING irritates me more (when taking pictures of miniatures) than getting inside, downloading photos only to discovered there’s static grass stuck so someone’s head – Especially when it’s -40°C (because there’s just no way I’m going back out there to do another shoot!)
Anyway these, and the ones immediately below are from Old Glory. The above are from the “Villagers” pack.
Ashigaru - from respective archer and spear packs. The spears are home made from paperclips – hammering one end flat then filing to a point. Woorks pretty nice – better than sticking big chunky cast spear tips on to narrower steel rod…
A Crane Kenshinzen from AEG’s Legend of the Five Rings.
This fellow is a Keltos figure. The sword he came with was of absurd proportions so I replaced it with something a little more "reasonable" from my bitz box... It might be a GW Bit. Hopefully I won't get a C&D letter from their lawyers telling me I must remove the sword from the barbarians had as it is a violation of their intellectual property rights....
Damn... it looks like I forgot to paint a couple of his fingers!? (Almost as annoying as static grass on the head!?)
Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:
Irish… no... really….
Or maybe a battle report from tonight’s game (which will NOT involve Irish…).
