SO...a few years ago the display case where Cap'n John stored the various Fantasy Folk I painted for him over a number of years had a house of cards moment. That is the top shelf had one edge drop down to the shelf below with its load of minis sliding to the lower shelf. Not to be outdone, the second shelf tipped down to the third shelf depositing two shelves of minis there. This proceeded until the case ran out of shelves. WELL...I got the shelves straightened out, deposited the wandering minis in a random way on the offending shelves, AND vowed I would get the pieces sorted out, touched up, repaired where needed, & hit all those glossy (gloss finish was my thing way back when) minis with a nice matte coat.

Came this New Year's Eve AND I finally fulfilled my vow...the fulfilling part took two days, six cans of Testor's DullCote, & one can of Krylon Matte. I figure that this MONUMENTAL task should be recorded for posterity along with subjecting you, My Dear Forumites, to a horde of horrid photos. ERGO:

The Cap'n's Case:


AND the Perfidious Shelves:










AND a somewhat better look from the bottom to the top...shelves that is:










with two blurry ones:














That ends The Saga..."Look upon my Works, Oh Ye Mighty, AND despair!"   clown

Wow! That is great.

I had one just like this. I gave to a local gaming store...they had it for 4 years but I just heard they went out of business. And no more

Thanks, Amigo! Cap'n John converted a rifle case into his display case...added the mirror, glass shelves, & lights. It really is quite a nice piece of furniture...the minis like it.   clown

The minis now have a place to hang out and get some fresh air.

It would be nice to see them involved in some game or other...I'm not sure if Cap'n John is up to that anymore. Be that as it may, I'll try to get the minis out for at least long enough for some closeup photos. I was surprised how well some of the pieces have stood up under the test of time.   What a Face

They've all aged better than moi...the only time there was any comparison was when they were missing pieces. Reality sucks though!   Suspect

One of the Fellows from Lead Adventure Forum for some reason or other asked for a BBQ Group Photo. Well...I had this one in Cap'n Johns Imploding Display Case; SO I snapped a couple of mediocre pics. Now that I'm planning on adding some close ups of my handiwork in his collection I thought I'd post them.







I was motivated to buy some Old Harlequin Dwarfs from Black Tree simply because the ones I did for The Cap'n looked SO COOL. I'll try to get some photos of them & some other motivational pieces up soon.   clown

...a little later, the Time has come the Walrus said...well actually the Walrus didn't say anything about Cap'n Johns case, but Ill post some more Photos of Dubious Quality anyway:

The purchase inspiring Harlequin Dwarfs:














AND some barbarians of both Genders beginning with a Barbarian Princess who isn't Lucy...or Desi for that matter. She's an Old Citadel Chaos Chick. Who made the Guys is another question:


...another Citadel Barbarian Babe:




...Chaos Chicks:




...Chaos Guys:








AND COOL Old Citadel Orc with his equally COOL Old Goblin Associate of Unknowm Origins:




There you go until next time.  clown

Always great to see such an amount of painted mini's! At home I mostly see them in plain grey or metal. Just Kidding

Actually even counting the stuff in Cap'n John's Case, I have many more unpainted or just primed & based minis than painted ones...it's the nature of the Beasty.   pig clown

Cap'n John owns more than 90% of the minis here, but he hasn't paint anything in years. That aside between the two of us we came up with about 15,000 minis in backlog...7,000 of them are the Cap'n's Hinchliffe Napoleonics.   affraid

Here a photo of moi in Mordheim that I came across earlier:
