Oldhammer Citadel Combat Card dwarf wizard.....a little commission...


My good pal Kevan over at Stunties asked me to paint this piece up some while back....probably took me the better part of a year to get it back to him of course but it was a fun job on an unreleased mini. Well, a fan sculp of an unreleased mini from what I gather....only a couple of the original have ever been seen, one in Bryan Ansell's collection and one that appeared on eBay a little while ago. I forget what it went for but it was quite a hunk of schmoolie.....

Harrig the Wise....I had to paint it as close to the original as possible, hence the wonky eyes....


The original miniature (both pics c/o Stunties)


Games workshop developed the Combat Card game back in the 80's, each card featuring a painted Citadel miniature. To my knowledge only Harrig was unreleased however I await an update!

The rest of the dwarves are on Stunties' site here.

Lots more information on the whole series is available on the wonderful Realm of Chaos blog here. on Boardgamegeek here and even via a Facebook group here.

Have fun and happy memories!

McEwan miniatures have returned...........


John McEwan has finally given in to popular demand and re-released his old role playing miniatures. These are gems that I picked up via Games Workshop mail order back in the 70s. I couldn't afford many but still have a wonderful dungeon double doorway that was, until recently, available from Alternative Armies. The sculpts are true 25mm so not too compatible with modern minis however you owe it to yourself to pick at least a few up! The images below are off John's site and remain his copyright, only borrowed here to push this old school loveliness!

I am looking forward to ordering a bunch of his old Acheron Legion minis....shades of Robert E.Howard of course. I do have a few of these, some of which are pictured below...
