Games Workshop, Rattrap Miniatures, Reaper Miniatures
To the left we have a member of the Overlord faction for Reaper's Warlord game. In the center, are two Mongolian Death Worms from Rattrap and to the right, one of the heroes from the Lord of the Rings miniature game from Games workshop.
The base on the Overlord member is done with Sepukku Models. Unlike some of the other bases I've made using their molds, this one didn't have a lot of air bubbles and took the impression fairly well I thought. The base on the elf was done with Army painter rubble, highlighted with an old Iron Winds leather, and then Iron Winds leather and white and give a tuft of swamp grass.
I love the idea of the Mongolian Death worms and even wrote a little about them in my own blog. anyone know if they have any game stats? Acid and electricity? Alright! The only thing that's a little sad about the whole thing is the price. Rattrap is selling them for $14 now. When they first went to Games Plus as new figures, they were $10 but I picked them up for $7.50 and it was buy three get one free. To see them at $14 now, almost a 50% increase tells me that material cost are way up and I wouldn't be surprised to start seeing these in resin or another material in the near future.
Anyway, that's enough blathering from one mad man. Let's start seeing what everyone else is up to eh?
