Odd and Sundry Items: Wizard, Swashbuckler, etc.

A small group of odd items rolling on the workbench this weekend…. I’m kind of all over the place, torn between finishing up fantasy units for Dragon Rampant, Frostgrave, and A Song of Blades and Heroes and swashbucklers for En Garde!… and other stuff…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

Two fantasy figures from Reaper Miniatures. the Wizard is for myself (and I need to find an apprentice for him!) and the Barbarian woman is another addition to John’s Cheesecake Warband  for Frostgrave.

Two English Civil War figures from Wargames Foundry; a clubman and a general.

A woman with a Kalishikov assault rifle of some sort – also form Wargames Foundry.

An old, old Dark Elf and a Skeleton casualty marker made from a Games Workshop figure.

Finally another member of the Green Gang for En Garde! – also form Wargames Foundry.

In other news, En Garde! arrived on Friday and it’s pretty much exactly what I expected (which is good!). I am very pleased to see how flexible it is and designed to be used in many theatres throughout the renaissance. I hope I can find some time to try it out sometime this week!

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

More Swashbuckling Renaissance types… More Fantasy Warriors and Wizards… and hopefully an En Garde! game report! 


  1. Another fine and eclectic batch of brushwork from your painting desk!

  2. Anyone who has played D&D knows that wizards can't use swords. Gygax is rolling in his grave!

    1. Maybe the blade is actually very short - it's just a really long elaborate scabbard...?

    2. Or maybe they aren't playing D&D but LOTR! Gandalf & Glamdring!

  3. Lovely collection of characters. I particularly like the Reaper Wizard. I too was also on the hunt for a suitable apprentice for Frostgrave. I've plucked for the 'Young Male Travelling Mage' from Miniature Heroes. Awaiting delivery. Hopefully he'll be what I'm expecting!

    1. Thanks!

      'Young Male Travelling Mage'? The Darksword one? Nice.

      I just remembered that I ordered an Argia Tholos figure from Hasslefree Miniatures (who is also bald - and should be arriving any day now!!) that might work with my wizard... I'm not sure who would be the apprentice.... I'm starting to think the guy above should be the apprentice as she's the one holding the staff....

  4. Look forward to hearing what you think. My copy arrived a few days ago but haven't had a chance to do much other than flick trhough it yet.
