Back to Fantasy ~ Goblins and Orcs for the new year
« on: January 08, 2020, 03:19:29 AM »
I started with painting up a few figures that had been gathering dust on my painting desk. No it seems that my love for fantasy has come flooding back in a big way. I haven't played any sort of fantasy game for almost 30 years. I did paint 3 or 4 Wahammer Fantasy armies about a dozen years ago but I had no interest in the game, so I never played it.

So now, after a long sabbatical my love for fantasy has been revived an  thinking back to my love of fantasy when I read Tolkien, Howard, & Moorcock and started playing D&D in the late 70's (I played AD&D continuously up to the mid 90's). These days I'm going to aim for Dragon Rampant and/or Frostgrave (etc.) with the ultimate goal of finding a decent big battle game and building up to it. Any advice on different games will be appreciated.

Some of my recent stuff is on this page. I don't want to re-post it so here's a link instead: https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=121724.0

But's here's what I've done in the new year:
There is also a lot of other info at my blog at:

















Thanks for looking in. I'll try to remember to keep this topic updated.

Below is a link to my blog. It's the place where I write uninteresting things about little toy soldiers. I do this because I refuse to grow up and behave like an adult.

That's what you have done in the new year? That's great progress in a short space of time. I like the bard/rogue character playing the flute. I don't think I've seen that one before.

A few more to add to my tally. I can paint pretty fast when I get going. My problem is that I change from genera to genera all the time. I'll paint a few battalions of Napoleonic's followed by a few dozen zombies and then 200 Romans... Right now it's fantasy figures again after a long time away.

Here's my efforts from the past few days. You can see more detail on my blog at: https://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2020/01/goblins-ghoulies-and-their-friends.html

I'm really enjoying this return to one of my first wargaming loves and still getting things painted every day.

All the figures below are Reaper Bones. I painted one Bones figure last week and held my opinion but after painting these ones I can definitely say that I do like them. Inexpensive, they hold good detail and the material is easy on my brushes.

You can see more pics and follow my painting and read my thoughts on my blog at: https://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2020/01/big-uns-little-uns-and-little-big-uns.html

More from my painting desk. I'm getting plenty of figures painted and my small collection of fantasy is growing again. There was a time when I had hundreds of fantasy figures but these days my collection is about a two dozen or so.

Anyway here are the latest additions. There are more pics at my blog @: http://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2020/01/barbarians-something-piggly.html
