Refurbished - Old School 25mm Garrison figures
« on: June 29, 2020, 03:07:24 PM »
During a clear out a few of weeks ago I found a box full of my old Garrison 25mm figures that have lain unused and unseen for about 35 years.  They were bought for a club campaign that never really got started.  After dusting and washing them I decided to refurbish the paintwork.  This was not as easy as I thought but I found or mixed colours that were close enough. 

They came from the Garrison Sword and Sorcery Range.  The units have some damaged figures and other figures converted to be officers or a random figure used as an officer. 

I cannot remember buying any archers to support them so if anyone has any suitably sized figures from the Garrison Sword and Sorcery range I'd be interested in purchase or exchange see http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Sword_and_Sorcery

Great job on those. I used to have lots of them back in the day, your pictures make me regret selling them on. Are they still produced today?

I wish that they were.  They ancients ranges were in limited production until about 2014 when they were "retired".

That is a shame, they have so much old school charm to them.

Wow, those guys are awesome! I have a few of them, always looking for more.

I discovered the molds had been bought and the company kinda sustained - just as they were shutting down. That guy has a blog and still produces some for himself, but as far as I can tell he has no plans to start selling them again. Truly a shame.

He is a prolific blogger, though!

I looked and looked at the Hyborian figures for ages and just when I decided to go for it, they went out of production.
