I have had a little time for painting this past week, and worked on some 1/72 scale plastic figures for the Portable Fantasy Game. I decided to pull out all of the already-completed individually based figures, and do a quick visual inventory. Here’s an overview of the 112 figures completed so far.
|Individually based figures for the Portable Fantasy Game, as of 3 February 2019|
The monsters are a mixed bag; there are a few Reaper Bones (downscaled, as it were), a few figures from Age of Mythology sprues, and a demon from a Dante boardgame of some sort.
|Mounted humans (Strelets and an Airfix Maid Marian)|
There will probably be a few more mounted humans before this is “done”.
|The Adventurers (Caesar Miniatures)|
I noticed after I took the picture that two Caesar adventurers are hanging out with the elves today.
|A merry group of men from the Airfix Robin Hood set|
One of the unfinished figures is another Robin Hood fellow; I expect to have a full set of the poses (and perhaps a few duplicates) before calling this group done. They hold up pretty well, for figures sculpted over 50 years ago.
|Elves (Caesar Miniatures)|
The archer lady in green near the center and the Legolas look-alike, second from the left in the front, are the wanderers from the Adventurers. I have a standard bearer for the elves on my painting desk.
|Fantastical men of the Western Isles (Red Box Irish)|
|Some NPCs (Mostly Linear B Tudors)|
Plastic civilians aren’t too common in 1/72, but I’ve painted a few. Strelets has more, in their transport sets, which will be added eventually.
|Some drafted historical medievals (Accurate and Strelets)|
Back in the day, fantasy figures were usually supplemented by historicals…
|Mystics? (and a dog)|
|Goblins and Orcs (Caesar)|
|More Orcs and Wargs (Dark Alliance)|
I’ve got plenty of additional orcs, between the two boxes that Caesar now makes and the many that Dark Alliance has produced.
