Slaine in miniature – or not so miniature!

I’ve always been a fan of 2000AD. Judge Dredd in particular. But a close second is Slaine, the celtic barbarian hero (link for those not familiar with him).

I mentioned a while back I’d jumped on the 28mm bandwagon and taken advantage of a couple of deals on the run up to Christmas to satisfy my thirst. What better than some 2000AD inspired lead including of course Slaine himself.

I apologise in advance for posting pictures of ‘unpainted’ miniatures but the point of this post is not the painting of miniatures but the scale. I own hundreds if not thousands of 28mm miniatures so know what to expect. But I wasn’t quite ready for Wargames Foundry.

Pictures speak louder than words so, first up Volk the Bastard from Hasslefree Miniatures – as you can see from the photo the spitting image of our hero Slaine. As far as miniatures are concerned quite brilliant. Great pose, sculpting and casting. Scale-wise, just what I would have expected Slaine to be like. Delighted.

WIP for the New Year: The 28mm Bubble Bursts

I thought a little hobby update for the end of the year – which was a couple of days ago now.

The 28mm bubble has truly burst wide open. If I’m not careful I’ll inundate myself with so much new lead that I’ll be turned off the scale again!

In the last couple of months I’ve jumped on (belatedly) to another KS, made a couple of eBay ‘bargain’ buys and bought new stuff from retailers. Continue reading WIP for the New Year: The 28mm Bubble Bursts

Copplestone Castings 15mm Fantasy. Wow!

These 15mm miniatures are some of the finest I’ve had the pleasure of slapping some paint on. They are from Mark Copplestone of Copplestone Castings. Go buy some now.

These are the Northern Character pack. Still to paint up are Barbarian Characters, Snow Trolls, Dwarven Command and some Shapechangers/Bears. The only other 15mm miniatures I have seen that match this quality are those from Demonworld. Thankfully they are back in production! http://www.ralparthaeurope.co.uk/
