Elbows' new Fantasy Thread
« on: April 03, 2018, 03:57:24 PM »
I'm sure some people recalled my older thread, where I assembled and painted many fantasy miniatures with the vague hopes of finally finishing a proper dungeon crawl.

Update: that didn't happen.

So, after a long break from doing much fantasy stuff, it's back to the grind.  The silly thing?  I sold off a bunch of fantasy miniatures I wasn't happy with, and have started replacing them.  I hope to get back into more fantasy stuff (playing Mordheim and maaaaaybe actually working on my dungeon crawl).

I'll begin this thread by re-posting a couple of the last images from the old thread, coupled with some new ones.

Random 'evil' henchmen...


The big huge sea beastie!


Dwarfs, and snakes, and witches oh my!


Some new dwarf gunners


Reaper metal ogre


Massive Darkness double-headed Ogre

Cool stuff all around, I like the witch in the snake picture in particular. Where is it from?

The snake is from the Conan boardgame by Mythic.

I like where this is going! Another thread with great minis and lots of inspiration for my own Fantasy adventure gaming.  ;D

These look great. I really like the cultists/henchmen - the grubby whites of their masks and the shields are superb!

It's Reaper, and having seen it painted it's going on the list

Nice stuff. Are they mostly dip painted with extra highlights?

I do have to ask though why does the two headed ogre have an enormous log strapped to his back?

Thanks guys, and sorry I misread the question above - yes the witch is from the newer Reaper line and it's friggin' beautiful.  Highly recommended.

The log on the back of the ogre is banded like some kind of battering ram?  I guess...  I haven't even bothered opening my Massive Darkness box nor reading any of the monster cards so I haven't a clue if that's what it does in the game.

I've got three more beasties to work on, and then some smaller figures.  Expect more soon.

Great thread. My favourite so far is the Kraken beasty. You've chosen the perfect colours and the gloss finish works sooooo well. I love the eyes as well. I must dig my one out!
