Look what I found at the back of the cupboard.

It's been a busy couple of weeks at HGA towers, but most of that busyness has been funneled into the day job leaving little time for the painting of lead alloy miniatures, besides which a flair up of an old tendon problem in two digits has turned said activity into too much of a chore for the time being. Consequently the Parthian project is on hold for a few days until things settle down a little. But here below are a few little side projects that have also been tidied up recently.

Three of Terry Pratchett's Nightwatch in their natural environment. Figures by Micro-art Studio, stonework carved from balsa foam & cobbles and bay window by Antenocitis Workshop.

A really old ( circa late 70's ) Hoplite by Al Charles. Quite primitive by todays standards but still plenty of foundation for a tidy paint job. This will in all likelyhood be a nice interlude to look forward to once the 'Thundering Horde" are complete.

Finally "The Box that Sings" a prop for an upcoming Call of Cthulhu game that has been pending for what seems like an age, organising roleplayers to be in one place at one time is like herding cats. This was constructed using a wooden box, plastic card & some of the guts from an old radiogram that I dis-embowelled to turn into a liquer cabinet.

  1. Those three in the first photo are so full of character. Also, I don't think that hoplite is bad at all - by any standard - some of the older sculpts have an integrity and charm unto themselves. Regards, Dean
