Hi guys

Happy NY, first post of 2020, I want to get some progress done on my 1/72nd fantasy project this year, they will be for use in both generic and middle earth settings, have been working on my Dwarves over the last couple of days, these are mostly Dark Alliance Dwarves with some converted Strelets Saxons, I will be converting more Saxons to Rohirum warriors at a later date, Elves and Orcs are also on the cards as well as a few other none middle earth forces and characters.

I love the Dark Alliance, and the Caesar, fantasy figures. The 1/72 scale figures work nicely alongside of 25mm-28mm Human figures, to match the size proportions detailed in the 1977 AD&D RPG book, Monster Manual. I'm attempting to match figure sizes per Gary Gygax's original AD&D rules, so that I can see the wargames as Gary saw, and played them, on his sand table, in his basement, back in the early 1970's.

The Dark Alliance, and the Caesar fantasy miniatures, have quite a lot of detail -- more than I expected in injection-molded plastic figures. The Dark Alliance Warg Riders, are superb, as are all the rest, IMO. Thanks for sharing! Cheers!

Yeah, they are quite detailed, it's a funny thing, I could buy more expensive larger GW or other figures, but for this particular project (and a couple of others) I enjoy playing around with the cheap plastics, seeing how I can convert and improve them.
