Uncanny. But we'll have to take your word for it that you didn't just search Google images until you found a picture that looked like your terrain lol

Thank you.

I can post photos of me trimming the grape vines while holding the models, if that's more convincing.  ;) I just hacked at it last weekend - it keeps growing and unfortunately the grapes don'e even taste very good.

Milton barbarian giant? The one with the big mace? Unfortunately I don't own any of the old Grenadier giants anymore.



Made a little progress on the halberdiers, finished the first few. There will be 32 when done. Figures are a mix of Grenadier and Front Rank.

I think they've had the mace one around for a while.
This was the one I saw recently. Kind of fits the aesthetic you have going.

Don't think I've seen that one before! Going to have to wait anyway -- backed up on giants, and it would probably be a fortune to get him overseas.  o_o



Finished the next batch of halberdiers, but I did get hung up on the drum, so the drummer is not quite finished yet. But this makes 15.5 of 32 done. On target (ish) for the monthly goal, I suppose. Miniatures are, again, mostly a mix of Front Rank & Grenadier -- but with an old Citadel mini thrown in as well.

Thank you! Started on the second half of the unit and also finished the last bits of the final mini from the first half.

The halberdiers march to the beat...

Thank you. They were enjoyable miniatures to paint.

I don't generally buy many minis (gaming budget is extremely limited), but at the beginning of the year I told myself that I'd try to go all year without buying any new ones - or at least trying to keep it to a minimum. (Besides, a few previously supported Kickstarters will be delivered over the course of the year.) I've done pretty well. I did recently sell some art, so I took splurged with some of the proceeds and bought a few minis that will most likely enter directly into the painting queue.



On the left is the Grenadier/Mirliton mini that I previously commented that I was eyeing as a mounted half-orcs general. I love this figure. After getting it in the mail today, I like it even more I think it has a bit of a Frazetta vibe to it. Now I want to get a muscular yet curvaceous half naked half-orc to accompany him. ;)

Next are three Reaper half-orcs of varying sizes. Previously painted mini included for scale comparison. I think the smallest will fit in well, though slight stylistic differences. I think the middle one will also look good on a 20x40 base, similar to the way I included a couple of Reaper orcs in with the previously painted regiment. The merchant... way bigger than I expected. His body is closer to the Foundry orcs or Marauder Ogres, but his head is much smaller than either so he doesn't look like he'd fit with those. Not so sure how/if he will fit in to the collection. Maybe I could try sculpting a new head on him?

Last is a Reaper skeleton I've been eyeing for at least a year and a half, for use as an undead hero. Also a little larger than expected, but I think he will be OK.

Photo's a bit overlit, but I'm closing in on finishing the halberdiers. Just two more minis to paint after this, the standard bearer and a trumpeter.




I also found the original minis that sort of inspired the JTC, also a Reaper mini...
