I am very glad we are able to offer some of Black Orc Games’ Hundred Kingdoms miniatures. There are some very fine figures in this line.
My favorite is the ‘Giant Gor’ figure. I use it my Victorian Science Fiction miniatures games. Think “Mighty Joe Young”.
This picture shows “Gor” with a 28mm figure from Foundry’s “Darkest Africa” line.
And yes, I paint most of my figures with inexpensive craft paints. They work just fine for most projects.
Recently I donated some casting work to my son’s Boy Scout Troop. They designed jewelry which I cast and they sold at a local festival to raise funds for summer camp.
Well, one of the scouts designed a monster rather than a piece of jewelry.
I went ahead and cast up 100 of them because he showed a lot of creativity for a twelve year old.
I am selling them for the scouts in the Left Hand Miniatures web store for $2.00 each. 100% of the purchase price will go to Troop 221 in Wyoming, OH.
In the US, everyone seems to think Japanese School uniforms have to be painted Navy & White.
BORING! There is a whole lot more to Japanese school uniforms than those two colors.
Research! That’s the key. But where…?
Don’t worry Bucko! In 2007, Strap-ya crafted 20 different Japanese school girl cell phone straps based on careful research on the trendiest school uniforms in the nation.
How? The uniforms were ranked from 1-20 based on which girls’ schools were the most popular with the boys. Teenage testosterone. Works every time.
Notice the variations in style, from the classic sailor suit to the sleeveless sweater tops.

Alix Elder not only sculpted the original “Space Opera” line but he does a darn nice job as a painter as well. I mention this because he has recently announced that he is restarting his painting service.
Alix’s website is at http://www.aeonminiatures.com
You can find these and our other “Space Cops” under “Left Hand Miniatures > Space Opera”.
