Forty mm fantasy fellows on the workbench

Dragon Rampant arrived today and has been well worth the wait. In anticipation of it's arrival I have been working on some fantasy types to go with my 40mm figures-
Here is one of those collectable Hobbit figures that come in a wee bag. I have added a modelling clay shaggy cape and repositioned arms. I include a 40mm viking for scale. An acceptable giant I feel.
Again a 40mm viking for scale. The chap in the middle was bought from a garden centre "fairy" range and is as he came. The chap on the right is another hobbit wee bag collectable figure (probably of Gollum) with added hair and axe.Acceptable trolls/ogres I feel.
As for Dragon Rampant it is lovely to see the old school figures used as illustrations especially the ME wizard on page 46.


  1. I too liked that wizard on page 46..... and I really like the garden centre troll. I wish our garden centre sold useful stuff like that. All imaginative conversions there, well done.

  2. I might just have to get these rules. Partly because I don't want to be the only wargames in the world who doesn't have a copy! And partly so I can dust off my old Citadel fantasy tribes dwarves, mini fits Valley of the Four Winds collection, and other troops for a wee knock about game.
    Keep up the painting Alan.
    All the best.

    1. I would love to get my hands on some of the old Minifigs fantasy figs. I remember ogling the Four Winds section of their catalogue when I was a kid.

  3. You have a good eye for spotting giants etc. I must kerp eyes and mind open!

  4. I love the fellow in the middle of the second picture. He reminds me of a chap on the cover of a book of HP Lovecraft stories I once had, only much more loveable.
    I gave in and ordered Dragon Rampant today. Looking forward to comparing notes with you.
