    I had, courtesy of The Pike Man’s Lament, an epiphany on what to do with a bunch of figures from MY Miniatures that have been lying about here since Creon was a pup.  They were too big to match any of my other stuff but I couldn’t bring myself to get rid of them

    Anyhow I think they will match some Donnington figures from their unphotographed but praised Wars of Louis XIV range.  

    Very much a typical Gamers story I suppose, but with redemption, and you can read it on my blog if you like.

    Looking forward to seeing what you do with these. 🙂

    Of course, it’ll no doubt lead me to buy Pikeman’s Lament, you should really be getting paid commission by Osprey.

    It’s a slippery slope alright!  I’m just hoping the Donningtons match as well as I’ve persuaded myself they will.

    OB a nice selection of figures, like Victoria I wait to see what you produce.  They are not half bad little miniatures, like all wargamers never throw any wargame items away you never know when they will be useful.  As to matching different figures from various manufacturers I do it all the time I just ensure the bases are all the same, that helps the figures to blend in with one an other, also if the figures are of slightly different height thin bits of cardboard on the shorter figures helps to fool the eye.

    All true William, never get rid of anything wargamey it will eventually have its day.  Completely agree about mixing and matching too.

    I’m going to go with a Monmouth theme so that means making some scythe blades out of Milliput and mounting them on wire poles.  For some reason a lot of manufacturers seem to confuse scythes with hand sickles, they wouldn’t if they had ever used one.
