Citadel WF Range (Weird Fantasy)

This month more Citadel 25mm Pre Slottas 

I set myself a goal of painting the WF range in one month - including basing.

The only significant distraction was losing a week or so to carefully gluing several hundred rhinestones on my daughters prom dress.

 I have had many of these characterful miniatures since I could by them in baggies at the local toy store. The last few, released in the US by Ral Partha can be harder to find.







I suppose that if you are not really old, and particularly if you are also not from the UK, this range may need a few explanations.

The Aardvarks are a (presumably unlicensed) representation of the comic book character Cerebus created by Dave Sim.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerebus_the_Aardvark



The General Manager WF6 and the Midland Troll WF16 are in the likeness of Bryan Ansell the manager of Citadel Miniatures (pictured below).


The Skin Golem WF7 is nicknamed Gumby after a character in the TV show Monty Python.


And finally the Dwarf with No Name:  
The Man with No Name is the protagonist portrayed by Clint Eastwood in Sergio Leone's "Dollars Trilogy" of Spaghetti Western films: A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). He is easily recognizable due to his iconic hat, poncho, fondness for cigarillos and the fact that he rarely talks.



If there are other details I've missed, I'd love top hear about them.

Citadel FF Series - US Extension

This month I went back to Citadel 25mm Pre Slottas after a couple of 
Working in 32mm (Prince August and Reaper).

I have finished off the Citadel FF series ( http://leadnpaint.blogspot.com/2014_09_01_archive.html ) with the American Extension. These were sold in the US by Ral Partha under their Imports label.

Some of these packs Are not unique - I'm not showing the repackaged FS Tiles
Some were issued as part of the Runequest Range
Some of the Miniatures are not Citadel - but Ral Partha Sculpts.
