First up I've a number of new Pulp miniatures, a desert guide from Artizan designs who was a lovely miniature to paint, really nice crisp detail and a characterful face. I gave him that interesting shade of ginger beard which may suggest he's Afghan. The second individual is Yusef, once again from Artizan Designs, perhaps he's another guide for our heroes but then again he may be the member of a secret organisation sworn to protect the grail and keep it's secrets. Either way I kept the colours subtle and went for a linen suit look but decided on different coloured trousers just to break up the miniature a little.
I follow those two up with a group of four fanatical turbaned warriors for my Kali cult, the miniatures are the Gazi from Mutineer Miniatures Indian Mutiny range. They've been painted up to match with my Thuggee stranglers my brother painted for me last year and are clearly inspired by the Thuggee from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Once again really nice crisp miniatures that were very easy to paint.
Finally I've a group of Ancient warriors, these are some playtest miniatures for my Greek Mythology inspired game and will be representing the Minoan Faction when I get back around to some more play testing. The miniatures are a mix of plastic Zulus and Numidians from Wargames Factory. They're not my best paint job and I have to say I hated painting them after the pulp miniatures, poor detail and not well defined at all. but they're off my desk and can be added to the tally.
That's it for now, handily a couple of orders have come in to I have some more assembling and prepping to do over the next week.
Really nice work Ian. Those Artizan sculpts are so characterful. I particularly like the russet beard and blue and white cap you gave the Afghan tribesman.
This collection will give Ian 70 points.
