Nice to see some 1/72 projects though I am staying with 28mm and 15mm for fantasy, though I did pick up the Dark Alliance Trolls to use for 28mm figures.

Hi guys

Happy NY, first post of 2020, I want to get some progress done on my 1/72nd fantasy project this year, they will be for use in both generic and middle earth settings, have been working on my Dwarves over the last couple of days, these are mostly Dark Alliance Dwarves with some converted Strelets Saxons, I will be converting more Saxons to Rohirum warriors at a later date, Elves and Orcs are also on the cards as well as a few other none middle earth forces and characters.

wow, I love your creativity in the conversions  8)

also thanks for the tip regarding halflings ("15mm Essex medieval figures"). I'm a big fan of the 1/72 scale and I'm always interested in such off-scale-miniatures that matches perfectly :D

Maybe 15mm Essex Vikings could be used as 1/72 dwarves?  ::)

Yeah, I could see the Viking range used as dwarves, I won’t myself, as they would be smaller in stature than the dark alliance Dwarves, and if you used Essex for dwarves and halflings they would be the same size, I think Dwarves should be a tad bigger than halflings.

yeah, i can see the point!

I usually use the 18mm dwarves of the manufacturer Eureka für my 1/72 scale RPG games

I have read that those dwarves also match for 1/72 scale:

However i haven't seen one of them in real life  ???

Hi guys

Really getting into my 1/72 Fantasy project, started on my Orc horde, it will be a big 1, for the infantry I have 2 Dark Alliance box's of Orc, 2 of goblins, 1 half Orc, and 1 Caesar Orc box, whilst they are all pretty good figures I've decided to heavily convert most of them, this is my first batch, still need to add armour, helmets, shields, hair etc with green stuff, and need to shape the spear heads with my dremel.

Nice work, I still like 1/72 and it is a lot easier now to do fantasy with it.

Just WOW @Gunner

May I ask which glue you use for glueing the plastic together?

And also how did you mount the spears? (I'm guessing: dipping the mini into hot water and then punching the needle through?)

Nice work, I still like 1/72 and it is a lot easier now to do fantasy with it.
oh that's true. Dark Alliance brings 1/72 fantasy on a new level!  :-*
They already released 50 fantasy sets, in average maybe 10 different poses per set. Meaning 500 1/72 fantasy poses. And this is just Dark Alliance  :o

The parts a pinned and glued with super glue, hands are drilled for the spears, if you want to do similar, get yourself a hobby pin drill and set of small hobby drill bits, they go for around $15-20 I think, then it’s just patients and try not to stab yourself with the drill bit, done it several times.

ah, I'll try, thank you!

Also I'm excited about your progress with the 1/72 orcs  8)
