Fantastic Plastic: Budget does not mean rubbish

Trawling the web sometime back and the possibility of using board game components (meeples) was suggested by Cheap Fantasy Minis!. I took the plunge and ordered a few sprues from Eagle Games for the Age of Mythology board game (which I don’t own but wanted some mythos-busters).

Soapy water, priming and a coat or two of paint and the results are none too bad. The Cyclops below is good, the Medusa casting and pose a bit rough.

At $3 a sprue you get plenty for your dollar. Shipping to the UK was a bit steep so this will be a better option for colonial cousins. I bought one of each race – Greek, Norse and Egyptian. LINK to the Greek Sprue.

Note: These are technically 20mm (HO) scale. Being a mix of mythological monsters and gods means they are just that bit more impressive with 15mm.

I’ll post a few more when I get them done.
