A post with two purposes I guess. One a further nod to Battle Valor. Presented below is their human NPC character pack which, as you can see, has quite a good range of useful humans to populate your fantasy world.
Secondly was to highlight a new offering from Thierry Ponsenard (Khardin on the 15mm Fantasy Facebook page) who has produced his first two sets of 15mm fantasy miniatures – his new site and the miniatures can be found here – Khadrin’s Miniatures. He has basically got off his butt and done what so many of us would like to do ourselves. So kudos to him. My two sets arrived last week and they are very finely detailed and well cast minis.
The reason I mention BV and Khadrin together is obviously the NPC theme of non-combatants for your table. BV would appear to have human’s pretty well covered and now Khadrin adds colourful orcs and elves. He is currently mulling over “what next” so I thought the pics of the painted BV humans might be helpful.
As an enterprise BV is a relative new comer to the market but they (when I say they, I mean Ed) have made quite a prolific splash already. Amongst the several ‘units’ that I acquired were also a few ‘Personality’ packs which offer quite an interesting and varied mix of character types very suitable for the ‘skirmish-orientated’. The three fellows below are from the Orcian Personality Pack (mini on the left – I am sure there is a logical reason for his inclusion alongside the expected orc warriors and shamans) and the Frigian Personality Pack (centre and right minis). Together they make a fine themed trio of brigand/pirate/thief types.
More posts on more completed Battle Valor Games miniatures in the near future.
