I mentioned earlier that there were several projects on the go, but flitting between them all was delaying getting anything finished - definitely a lesson learned and in future I'll be more focused!
"Stocks and Shares"? First off, this set of "Village Stocks" are
the old 1/72nd Airfix kit, now sold by Dapol. They're under-scale for
28mm mini's, but I thought they'd make a nice scenic accessory for the

another shout out to Joe (of Zabadak's ZombieWorld) with a "Thank You" for sharing a tip about some cheap and cheerful 'Hummers'. These were

Here's another mini from my last "Reaper" order, a Grave Wraith from their 'Bones' range.
While on the subject of finishing off Dragon Rampant warbands, the Dwarf general still needed mounting on a 'proper' base incorporating his "Hit Dice" (to keep track of how many losses he takes as a single model unit) - and here he is...
