Fantastic Plastic: A Medley of Repaints

As regular visitors to this blog will know I’m not much of a miniatures ‘snob’ and will happily try using ‘cheaper’ alternatives if for no other reason to see if they can be as good as their lead or resin counterparts when it comes to miniatures. Here is a small selection of recent experiments along … Continue reading Fantastic Plastic: A Medley of Repaints

Fantastic Plastic revisited: Little Gods

So forgive the randomness in advance. First up – I’m … Continue reading Mini Update: A Mini Medley of Randomness
