My 1/72nd Fantasy Collection…so far


Quite a few Close ups

Shouldn't the army of the light be significantly outnumbered? We need fantastical accuracy here!

Very nice! I am looking to 3d printing in hopes of getting more 1/72 spellcasters for my forces.

That's a fine looking array! And some great detail shots on your blog. Love the balrogs!

What game do you use them for?

Very nice work!

I really like the insect wings on the Elf magess, and the Pegasus horse! Nice twist on traditional fantasy tropes.

The green paint scheme on the undead is also a nice variation on the traditional. Granted, it is based on the LotR movies, but it is still quite nicely executed, and different, in a very good way.

I like the mottled green and brown basing technique. I began doing something similar, in my figures on 2", or larger, bases, as my technique is less successful on smaller bases. Well done, Paul! Well done, indeed. Cheers!

I don't recognize most of the figures. Are these the bendy 1/72 plastic types? If so how do you get the spears and swords straight? If other plastics, who makes them?

Yes, these are the Caesar, and RedBox Dark/Light Alliance, 1/72 scale, plastic figures. Heating bent figures with a hair dryer will usually bring them back to proper shape: thermal memory, when softened with heat (not enough to melt the plastic), the plastic will return to the shape it was molded into. Cheers!

Thanks all
@ Bill. Rules used, Chainmail 3rd ed..the one with Fantasy section added.
@ Allen. Luckily most of the swords and spears were straight OOB but if they are either as Sgt Slag says, use a hairdryer or dump them into hot water for a few seconds. Some of them have had spears added using Florist wire, the Urukhai for example.

laugh thumbs up
The Army of the dark will be having a lot more recruits in the future.

Thanks! You should have some fun battles with those arrays.

That's a great collection. Love the basing!
