Rob’s 54mm Fantasy Digression
« on: October 04, 2023, 12:10:50 PM »
I was inspired by Tikitang’s thread (https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=141416.0 ) on 54mm fantasy gaming to start painting a few fantasy figures of my own. I thought that it would be wise to start with resources I already had on hand, a bucket of Toys R Us “Mythical Warriors”. (There’s a rundown here: https://sharpbrush.blogspot.com/2020/09/54mm-fantasy.html .) I bought those when TRU was going out of business, whenever that was.

My thought was that I would go for an eclectic fantasy look, and just add things to my existing 54mm medieval project.

I’ve finished painting the first two of the seven “Mythical Warriors” poses, and will try to get some sort of skirmish on the table soon.  Painted figures are first, followed by a couple of shots of medieval skirmishes from years past, to give the flavor of the stuff i already have.

Glad to have been an inspiration to someone! 54mm is definitely the way to go!  ;)

I finally had some time to do some more work on this.  I finished the orc pose from the set, and then checked my mold library and found that I had the mold for spare 54mm medieval weapons, so I thought I would try casting so that I could re-arm a few orcs for variety.  As of today, I have rearmed three of them, which should be enough for a few weeks.

I’ve had the opportunity to finish a few more figures. The knight is from an old metal home casting mold; the other two are more of the seven poses in the Toys R Us “Mythical Warriors” set.

Apologies a little late to the thread……. Really great stuff, the pics of the medieval kerfuffle look brilliant. Out of the first two miniatures I’d be more hesitant to attack the sorceress, not for the magic (that would be the second problem lol ) but she stands confidently and looks like she knows how to wave that stick.

Keep up the good work,
