I hate to pick individual things from such a great display, but... I will!

Monuments and a cart are awesome, just rough enough to be believable on the table top. The trio of golems (barrels, rope and bricks) are next - hilarious sculpts and very fitting paintwork - congratulations! The shambling bunch - a solid third.

A line of beastmen-minotaurs is very.. nostalgic. A bit too dark, perhaps, but maybe it is just the photo. Scaven too. I prefer my rats more reddish or light greyish, it's harder to forget them after the game this way.

I don't think I've commented on Your wolfen - they are good, although subpar compared to many other things. If You ever decide to sell them (I hope You don't) I 'd like to be somewhere close to snatch a few I still miss in my collection (evil evil green).

Thank You for the photos! Wonderful collection!

Time to finish some stuff on the desk.



The teddy bear is some sort of charm.

The devil is a Gormiti toy.

The skeleton is a test. It's a cowboy toy with some bits on. It weirdly looks like an undead Indiana Jones.

The gorilla is a King Kong toy. I have another one and for it I used a matte primer. This new one looks a little too shiny.

I don’t even know where to begin .

Such an amazing collection of unique things.

Elephant warriors, giant gorillas, and constructs of all type.

If you don’t have a local shop to sell them through, I’d suggest the dakkadakka swap shop thread.

AMAZING.

Really, this is all wonderful, and I can say that selling it will just hurt. I'd rather design you better display cases.

Vote: SNAKE STAFF

Note: Your primer seems very powdery. Might be time to replace the can?

Glad to hear it!

I still vote for the snake-head staff guy.

Love snake staff man, I have fond memories of that head. Back when GW didn't mind people who looked like people instead of action figures.

I actually prefer red stripes.
Maybe blue for next one.

Very good! But also quite creepy - I'm talking about the circus show. Priest with a snake staff came out near-perfect, an excellent bad guy!

Some more industrial-looking terrain pieces. I think now I have enough to set a small table.



Mostly yogurt bottles, trash, sprues and army man toys.

What are these?

I'm not really sure... It all started with the idea to assemble the smallest character I could and then paint it as a halfling, or an imp or as a smurf.



In the end I painted the skin bright red, so let's say they are 3 very small warrior imp.



Or cosplaying children.

I don’t know what you call them, but I call them awesome . Reminds me of the old meme “Chaos begin to grow” these are tiny little jerks in the helmets of defeated warriors of chaos that are growing into future warriors. Or maybe they are just old chaos warrior familiars protecting a sorcerer. Either way they are a great idea and well executed.

they are awesome! So much character in such small minis! I like Theophony’s theory that they’re kids that picked up a helmet and bits to play at being Warriors! The full sized soldier is their dad telling them they’ll get a good hiding for hitting each other too hard!
