Trojan War, part 2

I ordered a few more of the new Eureka Bronze Age Greeks.  As always, terrific service from Rob at Eureka USA. This pack is Greek Armoured Infantry.  Four poses, all different, armed with axes.  One shield is included.  I do like these figures! This set is Greek Infantry at Rest.  10 figures, all different, with an assortment of shields and spears.  It should be noted that Eureka is

Trojan War, part 1

Let's take a closer look at some of the new Trojan War Greeks from Eureka: This first pic is a comparison between some of the 28mm Greek figures out there.  Hoplites, not in period of course, at book-ending the Trojan War fellows.  The Redoubt spearman is a bit more slim and short compared to the Black Tree Trojan, while the Eureka Greek is a bit more stocky.  The Redoubt figure does have the

Got something fun in the mail today!  What could it be?Oooh!  The new MiniCrate from Privateer Press!  I can't actually remember which one I'm getting, so despite the frequent spoilers and articles, these actually still manage to be a surprise when they get to me.  Let's have a look!Two miniatures??Let's look at the included cards, so we know what we are getting. Very cool.  Alright, onto the miniatures.And of course, they look great.  I'm really excited to get the current run of these miniatures.  Many, I can't use yet, but man they look great.

Stark Bowmen [Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game]

On to the next unit box!  Stark Bowmen, for when rushing things like wolves, berserkers, or great cavalry into your opponent just isn't enough to get the job done.   There are three of each of the following miniatures.   I decided to try and see how these would look in their tray, as they would on the table.  I still need to figure out how to take a good picture of this, but hey, I tried!Looks pretty cool in person, at least.Next time, I'll post a bunch more of the Kickstarter exclusive stuff!

Bolton Bastard's Girls Unboxing [Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game]

I need to start getting these out quicker, as I'm going to be closing on a house in about a week and a half, and it's a pain leaving these out instead of packing them!Today, I opened up the Bolton Bastard's Girls box, featuring a lot of war dogs!  I'll spare most of my commentary this time, the pictures mostly speak for themselves.     Four of each of the following dogs are included. Two each of the following hunters are included.  I've also taken a picture of each of the poses from the front, and from the back.  That picture above shows a bit of a strange crease on the cape going left to right (versus the 'natural' fold of the cape, going top to bottom).  It looks like a scratch, but both miniatures of this pose have that.  It doesn't look like it is intended, honestly, but it probably won't be noticeable upon painting. And that's it!  Nice short post today.  Will try to get the rest of these units/releases/whatevers up over the next
