I too am working on an Aztec Fantasy project, albeit for solo skirmish gaming. I am using the D&D setting "Maztica" for my backstory, etc.
Hi! I'm Harry. I am a hobby addict; I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Manchukuo.)

Thank you everyone for your words of encouragement - much appreciated  :D

All on board for this mate.

I like that you're doing your own 'thing' here and going off your own research into the cultures/mythology of Mesoamerica. Shaping your own 'world' like that is always really rewarding.

I've been doing a bits box clean out of late, if there's anything vaguely Aztec in there I'm happy to chuck it your way if you're UK based for postage?

Thanks mate - definitely appreciate any Aztec-y bits you come across - am UK based (will PM my address).




For the budget minded Archon Studio has their Kazumi Temple stuff in their Rampart line.

Cheers, will give them a look.


Nice start to the project.

 Would the Warlord games plastic Indians be useful if mixed with the plastic Aztecs?Might give more options and poses.

Hmmm…will have a ponder. Tbh, not sure I’m going to be short of Aztecs at this rate, but worth a look!

The Gringo figures are also lovely.

Added to the list as well  :)


My  Maya project has ground to a halt. If you've got some interesting swaps, and don't mind Maya instead of Aztec, I've got a pile of stuff you could have.

Thanks..
Not sure I’m at the swops stage just yet, but will keep in mind  8)

Nice! You’ll have to have a look at Paymaster Games,they do exclusively Native Americans.

Already on the list   :D

Some figures… please note the Lucid Eye Aztecs in the first (and third) photos weren’t painted by myself - all I’ve done is rebase them to fit with my own figures.




As mentioned before I’m a bit restricted currently about what I can afford to add to this project, so I’m working my way through my lead/plastic pile.

The captives (left hand photo) are from Eurekas Darkest Africa range, with a green stuff hairstyle. The small boy annoying the captives with a stick is a Foundry DA figure with some green stuff hair.

I’ve also had a play about with some of the Frostgrave plastic tribals (right hand photo) adding heads from Perrys War of the Roses and arms from Perrys Sudan. The blowpipe is just a cut down spear.



Also took a few photos using the jungle … haven’t got a games mat yet, so these chaps are really in the thick of it.

Sounds like a great idea, mate.
Good start on the figures too.

I have the 2012 Salute figure if you want another character: http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=252493

He may be a Mayan but this is fantasy, right?
 ;)

I think I might have a copy of that figure lying around somewhere  :D

Managed to get a few more jungle bases finished

Exciting.
I’ve painted most of the Lucid Eye Maxzans. Lovely figures. A little fantastical, but that’s probably the vibe you’re after  :)

Very cool start.
