Old Miniatures

I have posted about painting the Reaper Bones for my fantasy skirmish game and roleplaying game use. I participate lightly in the Reaper Forums, and ended up starting a thread displaying old fantasy miniatures from my collection recently.

I am embarrassed by my delayed Cold Wars report, but one of the reasons that old miniatures have been on my mind is that I picked up a handful of antiques from Harmony House Hobbies at the convention, and have been wondering what to do with them.

Added to this is the announcement from Iron Wind Metals that they are reviving production of the Fantasy Collector series of early Ral Partha fantasy army figures. An idea is beginning to gel, about a retro-style fantasy project, which would supplement my existing old fantasy armies, and cross over with an itch to do a medium sized medieval game (something along the lines of Lion Rampant--and if I don't end up liking it, it's the same ballpark in army size as Knights and Magick, which my brother wants to work on.)

The net result is that I spent my lunch break on Monday and Tuesday thinking about this while working up this fellow:

He's part of the Cold Wars find, an old Ral Partha ES-24. If anybody has any old Partha ES range around they don't want, contact me...

  1. Great paint job on a wonderful old figure. Ral Partha always knock Citadel into a cocked hat in my view.
