Reaper Bones and some more 10mm

I tested a batch of my Reaper Bones bonanza of figures, here are 12 goblins:

They are not bad, the sculpts have lots of character, perhaps a bit less sharp in detail than metal, as you would expect with a polymer casting, but they take paint well. They are cast in a rubbery plastic that apparently does not require priming. I coated mine with Vallejo sepia wash prior to painting to bring out the detail. Worked perfectly.

I also made more progress on the 10mm Roman Civil War CCA project. Here are a warband (Pendraken)

Medium legion:

and Lights (use of ahistorical green was intentional to key them as lights for CCA)

And now for something completely different

A few new things to put up here, including some 24th regiment of foot teddy bears:

And enemies...giant rats....the first figures completed from my huge batch of Reapers Bones that will take a generation to paint:

The bears are intended to get the kids into some gaming, perhaps they could battle the rats for jujubes using the Song of Fur and Buttons rules.

A few more 10mm Romans, some of these are very nice Pendraken:

Other news, this addition to the family:

She is a lovely 2-year old Golden / Pyrenees cross named "Milly".

Fireball Forward Germans

Here we have some German Heer by Valiant in 1/72 for a Fireball Forward scenario I am hoping to run in the next few weeks.
