Anyone remember Mage Knight? It was a game from Wizkids, the first successful collectible miniature game. It came out in 2000, was wildly successful for a time, then demand crashed and you could buy crates of the pre-painted fantasy figures for a song on the auction websites.

So I picked up a crate of them back in the day, planning to do something with them someday…


So here are some snakewomen! The plastic is bendy, the paint jobs are hit and miss, the castings lack crisp details (look at the 'blob' of a right hand!) – but a little painting touch-up makes these fine for the tabletop.


I ripped them off the click-bases and mounted them on steel disks. They were originally holding severed heads, which I sliced off because it looks dumb in a unit. The gray bases were meant as a compromise that would work both in dungeons and on outdoor battlefields.


I failed to record what these figures were called. I tried searching the web, and learned there's a two-sword variant, but the guy who had that didn't know what his figure was called, either! grin

Update: I've identified this figure as the MageKnight Gorgon (#40, 41, 42). Apparently part of the Pyramids Magespawn series.

One of the problems with Mage Knight figures when you're building units, is that there's usually only one pose available. I used a hair dryer to soften the sword arms, and repositioned them for variety.


As you may see in these photos, the soft plastic is a bit tacky even though I've given it a matte seal coat, and is a magnet for dust and fibers. Blast them with canned air once in a while.
