    From an architectural point of view: what’ s the point of the wood that is exposed?  Is it to show that the building is of timber structure with stone or mud brick and plaster infill?  If so then that’d be a “yes” on showing verticals, but they’d be best shown at the corners for sure and in the middle if the span of the beam is long.  If it has stone walls that are load bearing there’d be no point in showing a band of wood at an intermediate point vertically anywhere on the wall.

    Placed a recent order, will place another to be sure once the new barbarians are released! So we have a pretty good snake cult wizard, any chance we’ll ever see a skull headed sorceror?

    Bugger, I replied to this…  😐
    Or rather thought I had.

    So the plan is:

    Erland and Eydis as seen above.
    3 Turanian style city guard (being worked on now)

    Then if I manage to sell my 6mm sci-fi collection I will use that to get 3 Black Kingdom style tribesmen done to go with the Shaman and Warrior.

    Then after that….?

    Thulsa Doom would be cool too of course.  Forgot about him.

    As someone who only games in the bigger scales I really have no right or call to add input into this. However, one of the biggest gaps I see in 15mm fantasy gaming is evil barbarian types: chaps with lots of horns, spikes…we all know the type – the kind of thing Red Box offers in the bigger scale. From my admittedly peripheral position, it seems this is a big gap; Arabian archers are easy. Not so sure Conan has the evil barbarian types easily at hand. This should be fixed.

    Or one could always go up to 28mm!

    I can’t seem to post pictures.

    It seems like Crom’s Anvil is more Arabian in style.  Splintered light do some really nice Eastern men in 15mm

    I like these guys in 10mm

    I guess they are too big?  I’m not getting an error message, it appears as a lonely little box.

    Other images work so that must have been it!

    I also like these guys in 10mm:

    So, now that I don’t have to use my reserves to get these re-sculpted I will move on with more tribesmen of Utuseb.
    Spears or Spears and Shields?

    Separate shields? Otherwise just spears, it’s easier to add a shield than to remove one.

    Agree, separate shields would be great!
    The completed greens look great, and very glad they arrived.

    I did think about separate shields, but then looking at the figures I have which come with separate shields…
    They look all weird if you don’t put the shields on, the arms just look awkward..

    They look even weirder if you’ve had to carve the shield off to use them.

    Jus’ sayin’ 🙂

    Old Ben, who makes those 10mm chaps? Pendraken? They look good.

    I’m not sure who makes them.  They were part of a Kickstarter that I believe failed.  I liked them because they reminded me of the Frazetta paintings.  If you type in “Evil Men 10mm” you can find the Kickstarter.

    Nice edit, I was about to unleash Erland on you!

    Those greens are simply excellent! I am anxious to see how they turn out as cast models, but already now they look like they are  a t   l e a s t  on the same level as Copplestone!

    Too bad that kickstarter failed. They look really good, exactly what I’d be looking for if I were to do this in 15mm. Ah well…

    Erlend and Eydiss are looking superb, by the way!

    I did that and found the Laran miniatures range:  http://laranminiatures.bigcartel.com/category/evil-men-miniatures-10mm

    Are they the same?

    Going to cast up the walls later, I am assuming people would rather them be as they are:

    as opposed to having little scenic bases on them?
    They are stable as they are and people can always stick them on lollipop sticks if they want to?

    Yes, they’re the figures from the Kickstarter, as a backer who received his figures I can confirm that it succeeded! Lovely figures they are too. Slightly smaller than my GW stuff but once you’re looking at them from a yard or more away on table who cares!

    If the Ringwra …. err … Hero on a Drake doesn’t have you itching to build Sauron’s army you have no soul 🙂

    Yes, no bases is better than with bases.  You can always add a base, but it can be dern frustrating to remove one.

    Hmmm. Mike H, would those Laran figures be too small to work with 15s, do you think. They are exactly what I was looking for in this scale.

    I’ll add my vote, for what it’s worth, that the walls should be without bases.

    Those pics on the website don’t really do the miniatures justice.  I may have to order some.

    The Laran figures are what I’d describe as “true” 10mm scale rather than the 11-12mm that seems increasingly common. Given that most 15mm are nearer 18m these days I think the Laran figures would be dwarfed by 15s.

    Clearly the answer is to abandon 15mm altogether, come over to the side of the angels and do everything in 10mm scale 🙂

    Black Gate … Copplestone … Pendraken … Polar Fox … Warmonger … go on! you know you want to!! 😀 😀 😀

    Does that mean you will bugger off to your own 10mm topic then rather than polluting the 15mm goodness that is here?

    I have to admit those evil warriors make it tempting. But then I wouldn’t be able to use AB’s excellent buildings and other offerings. This is a quandary, no question. (Of course, I already have a collection in 28mm, which makes things even stickier. Will check out some of those 10mm companies, though!

    Oh, and shhhh! There seems to be some scale hostility brewing. Watch yourself!

    What? And miss out on updates about those rather nice 15mm figures you’re touting? 🙂

    For you fellows that are looking Microworld Games has a very nice 15mm evil/chaos type army with more coming soon. Been on the “to order” list for quite awhile now.

    For non Crom’s Anvil Conan inspired figures and so on, it may be worth noting the non company specific topic here, The Riddle of Steal
