Summoner and Summoned

 Just experimenting with 3D for figures I cannot get in 1/72 scale otherwise.


A great present!

This post is to give a huge thank to Jeff aka Jack Hooligan from Lead Adventure forum for his incredible generosity, and also to share it with you, people in the hobby. Jeff sent from USA to Spain all you can see below just because. I must say that when he told me he was going to send me a few figures I wasn't expecting such big and fantastic lot!

All these models together with magnets, bases, painting and shipping are worth quite money, but what I most appreciate is the gesture of generosity from one wargamer to another. I don't think these kinds of acts can be seen in other hobbies; and this is not the first one I receive or send, but never to big. So one more time my friend, thank you very much for eveything and let me tell that I will treasure and use them with the same love as if I'd have painted them. 

I just hope this doesn't mean you're leaving the hobby.

So this is all he sent me:

A box of "Skaven" from Caesar miniatures that I had in mind to buy for a future project. Abot 40 miniatures.


Also from Caesar, Elves, OOP adventurers and Dwarves. I'm specially happy with the non-Gandalf miniature so difficult to get.


A full undead army that I'll be using next Summer for the LOTR campaign I'm planning.


Four nicely painted Cyclops from Dark Alliance that I was thinking about purchasing, and I'll be using in my next game.


A greatly painted metal 25mm. old Skaven miniature from GW to be used as Rat Ogre.


Elhiem metal 20mm. characters that I wanted but never ordered due to the excessive P&P they have. Now I have them all.


From the same lot, these two already painted up to good level plust on primed in grey, though I may rebase them in 2 cent coins. Now I have more casters that I possibly ever use, and a lot of characters for any RPG adventure!


Norse Giant

Ok, it is a Frost Giant from Reaper Bones for 28mm miniatures, but on one hand it is a bit short for being a Giant at that scale, and on the other hand I did not want a Frost Giant painted like a Smurf and with a hard-to-believe ice sword.

I wanted a "Norse" Giant like the ones you can see in Games of Thrones, and I wanted it in leather, wood, stone and bones and without any metal, to give it some prehistoric flavour. I also saw it perfect for 1/72 scale.

So this is how it turned out; a real king in the North.

I'm not quite happy with the "bone" sword but I didn't want one made of ice or stone, so there you go, some spine taken from a long-ago dead leviathan.


Close up of the face. I 'm happy with the eyes as I could not see them very well with my poor eyesight.

As you can see, it is just perfect for 1/72 scale.
