Finding the old Citadel and Ral Partha AD&D miniatures at my fathers house - made me start looking for a few more miniatures. Some of those that I loved but never got back then. Have found a few at eBay - but that search also lead me to the most wonderful little miniature company: Otherworld Miniatures. Otherworld do classic 28mm AD&D/fantasy gaming figures inspired by the iconic imagery of the early Dungeon & Dragon gaming books/art works - and have specialists doing monster like those that can be found in the Monster Manual (TSR 1977) and Fiends Folio (TSR 1981) - just like Grenadier, Ral Partha and Citadel did.
My first purchase from Otherworld was the awesome Shadows sculpted by the fantastic Paul Muller. Paul has done a lot of cool models for many miniature companies - but I must admit, that the Undead range he is doing for Otherworld are some of his bests - and I was very, very impressed by both sculpting and casting quality of these.
So back on topic. After finishing the Citadel Umber Hulk I wanted to do some more D&Ds - so the next painting project was these new Undeads.
Otherworld UD Series - Undead, Shadows
I love painting Undead - so Skeletons, Wights, Wraiths and Ghouls will probably be on my next Otherworld order - and hopefully Otherworld will also do me a Lich. Would really like painting one so I has been looking for a Citadel ADD94 - but without luck.
Next project is dwarfs, though. Will have to figure out what to do for Golden Hat XIII at Chaos Dwarf Online. A Chaos Dwarf Musician? - hmmm! haven't got a clue, what I'll do - or have I :-D
