Out with the Bikini: Splintered Light 15mm Viking Shield Maidens

I’m no prude and will not come down on you like a tonne of bricks if you choose to field regiments of scantily clad Amazonian warriors or seductive demonettes.

However, I do admire those that ‘resist’ the fantastical and impractical when the temptation (and sales?) could sway them otherwise. Such is the case with Splintered Light Miniatures 15mm Viking Shield Maidens. No doubt inspired by a popular TV show of a Viking persuasion I think these ladies would do very well in any Dark Age or Fantasy setting. Kudos to David at SLM. Oh, and nice miniatures to boot.

Stealthy little suckers: Rebel Minis 15mm Ninja

I’d been on a spree painting some of the ‘Oriental’ inspired Sci Fi stuff featured previously so it made sense to spill over in to these pretty cool Ninja from Rebel Minis.

What you see below is half the pack (one of each of the poses). Whilst not Sci Fi they are suitably generic for many genres requiring silent killers. Continue reading Stealthy little suckers: Rebel Minis 15mm Ninja

A Reptilian Gladiator type from Splintered Light (I think). I was between some ‘unit batch’ painting and wanted a break so pulled this fellow of the ‘ready to paint’ shelf (I’ve a lot of those). Continue reading Mini Randomness: Spring Cleaning the Media Library

In the Sandpit: Playing with scales and mini sources.

I was in one of those moods where I just fancied painting a few random miniatures and testers. I had a few barbarians to do – Copplestone, Splintered Light and TTG I think (the rubbish female – I wondered if paint would resurrect an otherwise underwhelming miniature – it didn’t).

Also pulled off the shelf were some ‘experiments’. A Reaper Bones warrior, a trio of Egyptian undead from the Age of Mythology board game and a demon from some other board game which I forget the name of at the moment (I don’t have that or AoM, figures bought as sprues). Also a repaint of a toy from my son’s more youthful days. I thought it would make an interesting creature. Remain a bit too cartoon like for my tastes though..
