My Mirliton-Grenadier miniatures arrived safe!

Today is Christmas! It 'got the package I was waiting anxiously ... The giant is amazing, there are two pounds of metal here! The Goblin's box and the diorama of Malvolio are wonderful masterpieces (VERY '80s !!!). But the real Star for me is the Chaos Destroyer, miniature whom I admired on the shelves of I Giochi dei Grandi many years ago... I wonder who had painted.

Mr Basetta make you beautiful.

If you need perfect bases, sculpted in precious wood, totally handmade, here is the website for you. When I saw them I could not resist and buy a couple of them. http://www.ilbasetta.it/


Amazing Dungeon Adventurers miniatures.

Great initiative by Otherworld Miniatures: thanks to fundraising-crowdsourcing INDEGOGO we have the chance to see these beautiful miniatures made​​ (and we can also reserve some miniatures in advance) The first set made will be The Adventurers and then incoming other. I chose the package level 4 ... very nice also the reference levels-money. As in the old damn RPG. Could not resist!

The figures will be sculpted by a variety of talented sculptors, including Kevin Adams and Patrick Keith, with others joining the project later.  The miniatures will depict archetypal fantasy adventurers, human and demi-human, male and female, wearing practical clothing and armour and carrying realistic weapons and equipment. They will be posed for exploration, not combat.  And these characters won’t be muscle-bound superheroes waving Vorpal Swords in the air - they’ll be grim-faced dungeoneers, a little bit down on their luck, and ready for action on your table-top!
The 4 initial boxed sets will be:
DAB1 – Dungeon Adventurers I – Human Male Characters (planned release – January 2013)
  • Fighter in Plate Mail, with Bastard Sword & Torch
  • Cleric in Chainmail, with Mace & Cross
  • Magic User in Robes, with Staff & Lantern
  • Thief in Leather Armour, with Shortsword & Sack
  • Druid in Leather Armour, with Scimitar
  • Ranger in Leather Armour, with Bow
  • Monk in Robes, with Quarterstaff
  • Barbarian in Studded Leather, with Spear & Shield
  • Illusionist in Robes, with Scroll
  • Assassin in Studded Leather, with Blade Venom
  • Paladin in Plate Armour, with Longsword & Shield
  • Bard in Chainmail, with Longsword & Lute

Mirliton is my new God !

As I walked through the stands of Novegro (http://www.parcoesposizioninovegro.it Hobby Model Expo 2012)  I came across these crazy Tuscan family. They are the Mirliton and are reprinting  (pure white metal) ALL  -and I mean all-   the amazing old Grenadier miniatures production. Beautiful, perfectly printed and reproduced in great detail. They bought the original molds and they are really doing a crazy job to bring to light these masterpieces disappeared. I immediately bought a medium Shire Dragon... beautiful, and then I saw the incredible GOBLIN WAR GIANT ... almost 2 kg of pure metal. AMAZING. The prices are fair and on the site there are all the news available. Please.. go ahead! http://www.mirliton.it
