An 80's goblin

Finally, some more sculpting has been done, and I'm happy to show you the result. A little grinning chaos goblin, with tail, straight from the late 1980's...

I had an issue with his weapon, after baking (I used BeesPutty for him), so it is still currently waiting for a new blade, but it's 95% complete!

Finally I have an army of undead ogre captains as my disposal.

Painted Skeletal Ogre Champion

I went to Salute on the weekend and thought it was one of the best ones I've been too. It was great to catch up with my good friend 'GoblinLee'.

The day at Salute triggered those familiar desires to do more hobby stuff!  I hadn't done much with my home cast skeletal champion apart from a few base coloyrs, so yesterday I picked up the painting brush and painted him up and his two friends from Ral Partha.

I'm posting the original sculpt off to Ral Partha tomorrow. Im a little bit worried how long it will take to get the casts back, because I'm moving house in less than two months time!

Golden Age Miniatures is started!

Hi there!

As some of you may know me from my other blogs - I'll just do a very quick introduction.

I'm just your average, middle aged, long time fantasy miniature collector/painter/gamer. I love 3rd edition Warhammer (before multi-part plastics were invented and ruined everything!) and I collect just about anything from the same period for Citadel, Marauder, Grenadier and Ral Partha.

As an avid collector I've watched the prices of the old metal figures that I'm interested in rocket up. Which must mean I'm not alone in my desire to finish off various armies that I've collected over the years.

It was my Undead army that really gave me the push to start trying to make my own sculpts and this is the result:

GAM Skeletal Ogre Champion next to 2 Skeletal Ogres from Ral Partha.

This Skeletal Ogre Champ is my personal home drop cast attempt and there are a few modifications I'd like to make to the original sculpt, before I get him professionally moulded up and cast. I've had a couple of interested parties who would do this for me, but the guys at Ral Partha offered, and I thought it would be great to work with their experience in getting some of my miniature sculpts out there.

Hopefully I will run this enterprise as a not for profit/loss, but mainly for enjoyment.

Stay tuned for infrequent updates on where to get this fellow and other musings and ramblings...
