More Woodland Friends

Painting progress on my Wood Elves has been slow ( torturously so) but I had a wee delivery today to add some more variety to the Woodland Defenders ranks.Both are from Ral Partha Europe at bargain prices.

Firstly there is Adler, Giant Eagle. Pretty cheap for a Giant Eagle I thought when I ordered it. Now it's here, it's more a large Eagle. Not the Tolkien Taxi type of Giant Eagle. Nice figure though, so can still be used to swoop down on foe.


More than making up for any slight disappointment is my gang of mushroom men. 4 different figures in the pack, small and full of character. Can't wait to get them painted and on.

  1. Been thinking about doing a mushroom themed halfling blood bowl team - these figs are around an inch tall? how hard would it be to chop off those cast on bases (hate that!)

  2. ps. Gaspez-Arts has really cool tiny mushrooms w faces. I was thinking I could do dual purpose halfling & ogre/snotling teams.

    need some taller mushroom men if you know of anything.

  3. The bases aren't too thick, but the figure legs are a bit thin. With a bit of care should be OK.

    As for a 'shroom bloodbowl team. Reaper have some larger models. Also see this link: http://cheaphammer.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/bloodbowl-champignons_21.html

  4. Nice figures!
    I don't know how much you paid for the Eagle but MITHRIL do very good Giant Eagles in a great variety of poses. Quite common on ebay, sometimes for good prices (they are not very rare figures).

    1. Thanks for the tip, Sam, I'll keep an eye out. The Eagle above was just £2.25 from the Ral Partha site, so no loss.
