Treasure Hordes for 20 to 30 mm Role-playing and War Games
Filed under: General, Fantasy, Pulp, 25-28 mm, Pirates, Scratchbuilt
Posted by: G R @ 9:13 am

A bit of a departure from our usual fare. Although not exactly a miniature figure, these small scenery pieces are pretty related to our regular topic so I hope you find them of interest.

Treasure! Gold, gems, magical items!  It’s what every adventurer hopes to find!


These custom-made painted scenery pieces can be used as objective markers for your 20-30mm fantasy tabletop war gaming such as Warhammer Fantasy. They can also be used in many role-playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons.

The base of each treasure measures about 1-1/4 inches (32 mm) in diameter. Here is one of the treasure hoards shown with a 25mm scale miniature to give you an idea of size.


These treasure piles and other miniature scenery pieces can be found at my store along with my painted figures. If you have an interest in miniature scenery and terrain, you can find much more information on my Universal Terrain blog.

New Web Store Finished

Posted by: G R @ 2:55 pm

You probably have noticed that I have not posted recently. I have been spending most of my time migrating my web store to its new location. The transfer went smoothly, but it was very time-consuming. Now that the new store is open, I hope to find some time for painting some miniatures again. So I should be posting again in the near future.

In the meantime, I invite you to check out the new store if you are so inclined. The store can be found here:

Thank you for your patience during this construction period!

British Explorer with Revolver 25 mm Victorian Science Fiction. Pulp or Call of Cthulhu
Filed under: General, Science Fiction, Pulp, 25-28 mm, Victorian Science Fiction
Posted by: G R @ 10:00 am

Every gentleman knows the importance of maintaining one’s disposition in all situations.  Even when preparing to use ones revolver to dissuade those pesky Cthulhu cultists from sacrificing a colleague to the Eldar Gods, to enlighten a raging Venusian swamp lizard in proper civilized behavior, and other social situations.

This figure would be useful in an 1890’s Call of Cthulhu adventure of arcane horror.  Or in a more historical scenario of exploration in Darkest Africa.

In the Beginning …

In the beginning, there was nothing …  Just an emptiness, a blank void waiting to be filled with content …

Welcome to my painted figure blog!

I plan to offer up some of my painted miniatures for your viewing.  The figures will come from a variety of genres including Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, Pulp and more.  Most will be in the 25 to 28 mm scale, but other scales will make their appearance.

For those who have stumbled upon this blog, perhaps a brief introduction to the figure world is appropriate.  These small figures are used primarily in role-playing games (such as Dungeons & Dragons™ and Call of Cthulhu™) and table top war games (including Warhammer 40K™ and Warmachine™).  The miniatures are typically made from metal or plastic and can contain a significant level of detail in the castings.  In addition to active game use, some fans of the miniatures simply like to collect them as display pieces.

I hope you enjoy this little corner of the blog universe.
