A ROUNDUP OF THE YEARS FIGURE FUN

As the year draws to a close, I darted into the attic tonight to lay out the years painting and was pleasantly surprised by the amount I had completed. The latest and probably most useful project was the completion of a backdrop for my gaming table as I have been casting covetous eyes at other folks railway backdrops. I decided to have a bash at doing my own, constructing free standing boards  of 3mm mdf  to go round 3 sides of my 6'x 4' table. The scene is primarily for Imagi-nation use but looks suitably English to double as an ECW backdrop too (it is in fact based on the skyline of Stourhead Gardens , Wiltshire). On the reverse I plan to paint a more rugged fantasy scene for my Oldhammer and Conan figures.

Here are the figures completed in 2013 for various projects and in different styles and scales

From the left, Old school 25mm Aquilonians
25mm Nemedians
54mm Imagi-nation characters
D and D figures
Lord Vassago's Oldhammer Army (Thistlewood)
King Amias' Oldhammer Army (Thistlewood) (must get the last few figures finished and based)
In the background left, some Old school Conan characters and 2 x 28mm Imagi-nation follies
and the backdrop itself, just finished



A total of 
43 25mm Cavalry
42 25mm Monsters
424 25mm Infantry
12 54mm Figures 

Huzzah!!

Some more pics of the backdrop from my new blog Mars in Arcadia




A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL READERS!!!!!!!!!!!
