Got the first batch of Pygmies painted and based.
It consists of one Regiment of 20 Pygmy Warriors, and two units of 6 scouts. Only another 20 warriors, 15 Pygmy Impis, 6 socuts, and 3 Characters to go !
The miniatures shout out the look of cartoony Zulus, but as they are to go alongside Slann I went for a more South American Skin tone, with colourful feathers. I think the photographs make them a little more flat in highlighting terms than they are.
They were fun to paint, and make an unusual , if releatively useless addition in gaming terms, to the Slann army. The scouts can be useful for pot shots at things.
Also posted a few pictures of few other random things too.
The batch as a whole
Shrunken head standard Bearer.
The front of the regiment. The leader has had his orginal spear replaced with as it had been broken long ago. It also helps to tell the Level 10 hero apart from his Braves.
Goblins. The Iron Claw goblin catapult.
It came with 3 crew, and at some point I seem to have ended up with a fourth one!
The Citadel, CM2 Gargantuan Fire Lord.
Sculpted in the 1980's by Nick Bibby, who stopped sculpting miniatures, and went on to fine art statue scultping.
My lucky find from e-bay from last weekend!!
The Ral Partha Three Stooges troll (or Ettin).
A close up of the goblin catapult, poking his (or mabye her!) tongue out.
