  1. Here's a link to Paymaster Games, who craft fine looking Native American and Polynesian miniatures: https://www.paymastergames.com They may fit into Your Glorantha. Check out Ai Apeac, a human-arachnid.
  2. Here are a few more painted miniatures that I've completed over last the couple of months. It was a slow month for painting, but I'm still making progress. My backlog of unpainted miniatures has grown though due to the arrival of the Troll Caravan sets from Mad Knight. It's not necessarily a bad thing since the Mad Knight miniatures are simply awesome! Enjoy the pictures. The three baboon set from Lance and Laser. And here they are with the baboon shaman that I finished a few months ago. Jack-O-Bear and Broo from Infinity-Engine's Runequest miniatures line: Dragonewt with Klanth from Infinity-Engine's Runequest miniatures line: Rubble Runners from Infinity-Engine's Runequest miniatures line: Broo Hero from Lance and Laser: Pig Broo from Mad Knight: Here's a sorceress from the Wizkids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures line that I thought would be appropriate for Glorantha:
  3. @Dissolv Once again, your painting skills are epic! Where did you purchase the riders? (link please) I could use some riders for the bison I picked up from Acheson Creations.
  4. I emailed Crocodile Games about the scale of the Egyptian mythology miniatures line and here's the detailed response I received from Chris who permitted me to post the reply. "Scale is a difficult thing to answer, as there seems to be lots of interpretations of what a 28/30/etc mini is, and where they are measured to? The head of the eye? I describe our miniatures as 28mm 'heroic' scale, the same scale as Warhammer miniatures from the 1990s and 2000s (though not oversized like the modern GW stuff.). A bit more robust that the same era of Ral Partha miniatures. I was a sculptor for both companies before starting this, and my scale has stayed essentially the same throughout. WarGods minis fit nicely with most conventional 28/30mm miniature ranges and scenery, they are not a weird scale. Most of our warriors are photographed on a 20x20mm square base, so that should give you a good point of reference to figure out their general size. Thanks, Chris Croc Games"
  5. I just completed this Lance & Laser Baboon Shaman. In my Glorantha he has yellow eyes, reddish mane, and white fur with a lilac tint.
  6. Thank you! Astigmatism, a manifestation of Chaos, is winning the battle against my Harmony eye glasses. 😋 All of which makes me slow at painting.
  7. Oh, I know. 😀 The BRP forums are one of the most welcoming forums I've participated in. Some here may remember the flame wars on the Ars Magica Berkeley mailing list or RPG.net in the early 2000s. I don't know what was in the water back then.... 😋
  8. I know, but they were inexpensive (US$4.99 for a pack of two). They can also work for my western frontier games.
  9. These miniatures are from WizKids unpainted line of figures for (mostly) D&D games, but I think they're perfectly usable for Glorantha. Especially for Rune spells such as Summon Cult Spirit (RQG p. 342). Air Cult Spirits. I used real leaves cut to size and glued them on the miniatures for added effect. Sealed with clear matte spray. Hopefully the matte spray will prevent the leaves from decomposing further. Also, I didn't use the small black bases that were included in the package and replaced the bases with clear ones. That way you can put an air spirit on a clear "flight" base to show that it's hovering above the ground (see second image below). Here are WizKids' medium earth elementals, which can be used for Gloranthan Earth Spirits. These WizKids' Oxen can be used for Sartar cattle. And here's a Reaper Miniatures pack mule that's always useful for adventurers.
  10. Another from MadKnight's Broo Warband, Kickstarter "Enemies of Sartar."
  11. Here are the two Rock Lizards from Infinity Engine's Adversaries set. And the Dream Weft. I attempted to make it appear that blue-white light was emanating from between the wraps under the hood and from the open sleeves of the figure. It didn't turn out as I intended however.
  12. Here are a few more figures that I've completed. Here's a Great Troll from Infinity Engine's RuneQuest Sampler Set. There's a very faint Man rune on the shield. "Claw" with necklace of severed hands, and Big Rhino from MadKnight's Broo Pack. I still have a few more of the Broo Pack to paint.
  13. @Dissolv Your painting skills are superb!
  14. Thanks, @pachristian I have some bison from Iron Wind Metals that I'm in the process of painting, but they're just standing still. I like the Acheson Creations bison's pose and will be getting some of those. I've also been on the hunt for zebras. Thanks for sharing!
  15. That's good to know that the Egyptian mythology line is 28mm and it's probably true that the Amazons are at the same scale. I sent a message to Crocodile Games via their "Contact Us" web form and I'll let you know their answer when I receive it. I'd like to get their official word on the miniatures' scale.
