Props,The animal's went in 2X2

It beginning to feel like Noah's ark in the studio's & as for the smell we won't even go there lol.
I've picked up some animal's over the last while & have finally gotten around to them.
Their from 3 different place's, Foundry, Northstar & Black Tree but don't ask which is from where.
Painting this lot up is certainly going to be different as a part from the couple of horse's, a dog & a rat or two I've never painted any animal's before.
The Hippo's are what is called waterline, as in you only see the part above the water, yes I know their on grass but some day.

What the make up department will make of this lot I've no idea, they'll probably tell me to buzz off.

Or to stop monkeing round.
Maybe they'll just think I'm an ass
Right that's enough with the corny stuff Frank.

I feel the animal's should help add detail & help give a certain feel to things

The back lion in posed leapping but untill he's based up he won't stand.
Brave girl Connie brave girl, the picture above give you their size againts a 28mm model, I think they got the scale spot on tbh.

That's a rap for this post as always my thanks for dropping in & if you'd care to leave a comment it would be welcomed.


  1. Blimey! That is quite a lot of wildlife! They'll certainly add loads of character to your tables!

    1. Thanks Gordon, might go on a safari when their all painted lol

  2. Wow, that's a lot of animals. I recognize some of them and have them in my own collection (of painted miniatures!) I'm looking forward to seeing yours painted.

  3. Thanks Joakim, I'm looking forward to seen them painted as well so I can move on to other things did I ever mention on this blog that I don't like painting ? lol

  4. I'd definitely say an ark is in order! That's a great looking zoo you have there :) Are these planned for a pulpy adventure in the dark continent?

  5. Thanks Ivor, their as much for adding detail as anything else tbh, but would make for a safari type PA game.
