I picked up a couple Historex figures at a model show recently. A mounted British Dragoon and a British infantryman. The part count for each is ridiculous.

Confrontation is back!

 

Well, kind of. There's a kickstarter going on right now to get a good part of the classic miniatures back into production. Seems to be plastic this time, but why not. I'm in, always loved those miniatures and the studio paintjobs where always special and super colourful. I hope it is ok to post the link.

Another 40+ Perry Miniatures 28mm plastic ACW.....I've almost got everything I need now, a box of Zouaves will be the finishing touch.

 

PS - If anyone else is building forces using the Perry Miniatures range and want to acquire individual sprues of figures rather than buying a whole box, I highly recommend this eBay seller:

No connection other than as a satisfied customer.  :coolio:

This set/game was going for silly money on Amazon, and it would have been rude not to!

£8.59 for 26 figures seemed pretty good value (16 human, 10 Endoskeletons and 5 half torso crawling Terminators).

(Unfortunately, this box will probably end up in the loft, along with all my other impulse miniature buys. I have about half a chapters worth of Games Workshop Space Marines still waiting to do.:()

My previous post left me feeling a little guilty, so not so much purchased, but dug out of the loft. A lot of the runners/sprues have ‘copyright 2004’ on them, so I guess that’s roughly when I bought/made them.

I recon I’ve got 100’s of them in various states of assembly. Many made then stripped of paint because I never could decide what ‘Chapter’ to make.

I’ll knock up a few as ‘Crimson Fists’ in honour of when I played the original game way back in the late 80’s.:pipe:

Cthulhu. And sculpted by hand, not digital. Can't help it, there's just something lost with digital sculpts.
Couldn't resist just another Kickstarter as always. Be fast, if you want to jump in: http://kck.st/2ImcU6x

Crimson Fists have a lot of attention these days since the anniversary special figure depicting their last stand against the Orks.

Imperial fists are popular too, easy to paint ready to play and bright too especailly when nicely recess shaded like yours are.

 

Why do you have copper rods in their feet, what did you pin them to?

:pipe:I’m old enough to have some of the originals, let alone ‘Anniversary’ stuff! 30 Years! How time flies…..

 

Anyhoo, it’ll end up being a mix of various Dorn based Chapters. Crimson Fists, Black Templars and a few Imperial Fists for added colour. I’m thinking ‘Declates Crusade’ if you want to get real geeky about things.

The copper wire is an old habit from way back that I still use even when making ‘normal’ models, just makes things easier to handle with an added bonus of being used to pin them to bases when done.

To add to the What miniatures did you purchase lately?

Oh man, I'm so sorry! Thankfully my jacksie is safe as the current backstory has Slaanesh chained up in a dungeon dimension somewhere... 

 

My comeuppance is coming due as I've pre-ordered the new Age of Sigmar set called Soul Wars. Look at all the ghosts!
