Wandering off the path...

I hadn’t planned this not particularly wanted a new project in a different scale. Here are some clues:


A photo and  Werner Herzog film title as clues. Can you guess the scale and manufacturer?

  1. I haven't seen that film for 40 years, yet I still have the image of the raft overrun with monkeys and a dying crew drifting down the Amazon. I don't have the energy to paint an army but I should watch the film again. Mmm, and maybe a holiday in Trujillo.

    1. I was at Edinburgh Uni in the first half of the 1980s and the Filmhouse in Lothian Road showed loads of “Art films “ on Wednesday afternoons for the sum of 50p. Great value and great times.

  2. OK John has pegged the movie, 1/72nd plastic seems to small these days so I'm going to go with 30mm flats.

    1. Nope,my flat attempts have been a disaster and 30mm is not the scale. Btw anyone who wants my Aztec flats are more than welcome to them for nothing. Just leave a comment here.

  4. Ooh interesting - a long fascination of mine Aztecs, Toltecs, Incas and Conquistadors - nice little project. If you're doing smaller games then you could go with 40mm ...

    The Steve Barber figs look nice - also what about these

  6. Well, if I were doing it I would try for Revell 1:72 assuming that they are still available or Caesar would be acceptable.

  8. Alright, the Barzso set is going for something like $900.US so my 2nd guess, which I almost made my first, is the new Chin Toys 54mm plastic sets.

  10. Is it Peter Laing? Late on, Peter Laing did a surprisingly good 15mm Aztec range - on the Google Plus Peter Laing Community Page set up by Ian Dury, there are some well painted examples by Derek Moore.

  11. Or maybe 30mm with Willie? OK he only did 4 Aztecs and one of them was Montezuma but the Spanish are lovely.

    I would make a good home for these flats if the generous offer you've made is still open.
