100K views a mile stone for this blog

I thought I would not reach this point on this blog.  But I finally made it.  Thanks to all the folks that view this blog.  I know that I need to put out more pictures of my work.  More AAR reports but gaming has been very far between for me.  Thinking about doing solo gaming a try.  Also need to start selling off the mounts of figures that I have used in years.   Ebay will be getting some posts to sell off my 15mm ancients.  The sad part I painted these back in the last of the 80's. They never got used in a game....  Again thanks for following this blog.

Japanese Goblins

 Trying something new.  I used my wife cellphone to take picture of these little devils.  Really need to make a photo booth to take pictures.   But back to the Goblins.   These are the one made by AEG for the Five Clans miniature game.  The sculpts was amazing.   The Clan mniature can be found on ebay.

Antony Barton's painting guide.

AB miniatures to me are the Best miniature in 15mm around.   I can look at his figures for hours.   Basically marvel at the detail of his work.  Lately I have been collecting his excellent 20mm WW2 figures.  This is an outstanding line of miniatures.   So I got a little off track here.  Today I discovered that is painting guide is back on line.   Mr Barton gives your a step by step guide how to paint his miniature.    Here is the link to that article: Painting small figures

Images below are reference from his guide.   All credit belong to Antony Barton for photos.

Check out Skull and Crown Blog

I found this blog on the Face book page called "Oldhammer in a new world"   The group is using the the original Warhammer Fantasy books.    I still have some of mine.  I enjoyed playing the old version.  This is before the magic part became over powering.  All photos are from the Skull and Crown for reference only.

Ninjas for Daisho

Here is part of my ninja collection for Daisho, Oriental D & D and other RPG rules.   Boy these figures have been hiding in a box for since the 1987.   Haven't bought the Daisho rules and Ronin rules I had to find these battle harden veterans for a Oriental D & D campaign.   That campaign lasted  5 yrs before the group broke up.   As of late I have been buying up the oriental adventures off Ebay.  The one I'm having problems finding the the Yakuzi adventure.   That was the first big campaign I played with my son and daughter.   Here are the picture of my ninja clan.

Copplestone Colonial miniatures

Copplestone has two lines of miniature that would fit into the MWWBK colonial period.  Darkest Africa and Back of Beyond.   Darkest Africa is the German vs British colonial figures.   While Back and Beyond is Bolsheviks, White Russian, Chinese and British.   The Back and Beyond would be a better fit for In Her majesty's name or VSF.   Personally I think these are just kool figures to have.

Copplestone can be found here: Copplestone castings.  Now for the pictures.
