Here is a classic knight miniature in battle action. Charging into combat, this fantasy warrior is poised to deliver a devastating blow with his two-handed battle axe.
A seasoned fighter, this human female warrior is protected by both plate and chainmail. You can tell by the look on her face, she’s not afraid of a good fight.
Her main weapon is the two-handed sword she currently brandishes. She also carries a longsword sheathed at her side as a backup weapon.
Her auburn hair matches her fiery combat skills. The jewel-encrusted headband may indicate that there is royal blood in her veins.
This warrior portrays a certain aura of aloof nobility commonly found in Elven characters. His open stance seems to almost invite his opponent into attacking, adding to his sense of confidence (a trait that is sometimes defined as arrogance by other fantasy races).
His platemail armor is both ornate and clean. He has chosen to forego an protective helm.
An amethyst jewel decorates the hilt of his longsword. This may be a sign of his status in Elven society, possibly marking him as a prince.
He wears his hair loose in a traditional long style, allowing it to swirl about his head in his deadly combat movements.
A nice casting of a 25 mm Elf fantasy miniature figure.
Let’s start with a figure that is one of my favorites. This miniature is a look-alike for Doc Savage, the iconoclastic hero from the golden age of pulps.
Doc Savage relied more on his advance intellect than on his brawn. But as seen on the majority of the cover art on his published novels, the hero possessed a highly developed physical body as well as a superior mind.
Here Doc Savage is shown in one of his most well-know poses, fresh from a battle against an evil adversary. Although his shirt is shredded, his own strength and determination just radiates from him. The addition of the ray gun adds a nice pulp touch.
This figure works well in any Pulp, Weird War 2, Super Hero and similar games. Scale is 25 mm.
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.
