Great minis Mike. I had some of those in my huge bag of old Ral Partha and the like too  :)

Fabulous work OT. Those are really excellent figures. Could do with one or two of those in my Wars of The Roses collection  :)

Thanks, Captain. I love the lady fig...and the jeans and leather jacket guy to the left.  I decided to do the "Elvis" style haircut for the heck of it...

Those fighting men are nicely painted characters.

Thanks.   :)

Thanks.   :)  Figures are great to paint.  Considering the age of these, It just confirms why Mark Copplestone is such a great sculptor.  And I was actually thinking of your WOTR stuff when I was painting them.  The guy with the axe, especially, would look great in one of your "bands."

Mike - I think your entry is excellent.  The setting compliments the figures and "Elvis" and the "Dame" I think are particularly good.

Fighting men for me.  :)

Wait, that may not sound as I intended...  ;D

Both good entries.

Very kind of you to say so!  I knew when I saw your figs though that Svetlana and the boys would have a hard time of it!  Your entry definitely shows more skill, so I'm not disappointed to be drubbed by such an excellent entry.  Good luck next round, too!

Those Grenadier Warriors are great. I guess it's been Copplestones best time. Not that he's not as good today as then, but he's gotten lazy. All those similar poses...
