A few more figures to add to my collection. These ones are all official Frostgrave figures. They're very nice.





Well, that should stop Rocket Morton from getting all the girls.

I've painted up quite a bit of stuff since I last posted. I'm still on a fantasy jag and really enjoying just sitting and painting at this point in time. As a result I'm getting a lot of good painting done.

You can see a lot more pics and commentary regarding my painting at my blog @: http://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/

Some of this first lot are for Frostgrave:











These are mainly for my up coming Faerie Army. It's still in the concept stage at this time as I try and work out exactly what I want to achieve.

A bit of a mix of figures to add to my growing collection. All of these figures are all from Eureka Miniatures and some will be for general gaming and some for my growing Faerie Army. It's not a very large army yet but I had to start somewhere and it started this year. I'm scouring the web for various manufacturers and anything fairyish that will fit my vision.

There's more pics and writing on my blog at: https://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2020/01/a-little-bit-weird-wonderful.html
Please have a look.

Greetings folks,
I've been continuing to paint figures for no other purpose that I wan't to paint them. I sort of have some goal in mind but it's vague and not really defined as yet. I wan't to make a Fae Army but unsure which direction to take. I do know that I want to avoid the "Wood Elf trope" sort of fae army that is common. I do want to incorporate those elements but I want to have elfin knights standing next to goblins that are standing next to giants that have sprites under their feet.

But, I'm not sure how to do that. Yet.

Here's my newest batch of figures:
If you want to see more pics of there are plenty of them as well as a lot of writing on my blog at:

Sidhe swords ~ Little sprites from Eureka Miniatures


This guy from Eureka Miniatures


Another figure from Eureka:


Here's a censored version of this tiny chap:


And this is one that I'm working on. I made him 10 years ago and he's been sitting in a box waiting to be re-assembled and painted.

Thanks for the positive feedback. I'll hopefully have the treeman finished by the next time I post something.

It's amazing how much you can get painted if you're really enjoying your painting time. I've only recently discovered audio books and I'm finding that they have increased my painting time a huge amount. I sit down, put an audiobook on my tablet and start painting. Then I get lost in the story for a few hours and just keep on painting. As a result I'm flying through the figures on my desk. Even better is that I'm enjoying the books and enjoying my painting.

Here's some more of my recent figures. There are more pics and relevant commentary on my blog at:

Yes, yes that's the life right there! Let us know what you're listening to these days!

Love your painting style, your quirky miniature collection and that tree-man is EPIC!

Sidhe swords ~ Little sprites from Eureka Miniatures


Does anybody know what these fellas are called or where to find them on the eureka website? Iíve been after some since they first showed off the greens a couple of years ago but never seen them for sale?
