Posting time has been a bit limited this week...in the previous post were pictures of the figures I finished up on Columbus Day. Last Friday was not a scheduled work day, so I was able to sit down and do something with paintbrushes. Most of the time, I find that trying to ignore the Muses doesn’t come to a good end. So, having finished a nagging project in 1/72 scale, I found that I was inspired to paint a few more figures just for fun. Here are two Caesar adventurers, two Caesar 13th century knights, and a Reaper Bones “saproling” done up as a 1/72 tree-thing. Attempting to freehand the lion’s head on the central figure was a bit chancy, and the shield on the other knight was pre-embossed, so more practice on 1/72 heraldry will be coming up.
With this additional handful of figures, I feel like it’s time to play some sort of single-figure game with them. 1/72s are about at the limit of the practical for individual figure games, in my opinion. My basing system should probably have been designed to put a little more weight into the bases, to encourage the figures to stand through minor table bumps and so forth. I am looking over Rangers of Shadow Deep as a possible near-term game, but haven’t done an order of battle to ensure that I have most of the miniatures needed yet.
