Cheap Wargame Miniatures

Its been a while since my last post, its been a busy time and my other blog has also suffered from a lack of articles. So apologies aside what am I looking at today, well trying to game on a budget I find that you generally come unstuck when you involve miniatures, you could always use paper/card minis, which are free from http://onemonk.com/Home.html. But if you’re anything like me then you prefer using something that requires a lick of paint on them.

New for Christmas (Part 2)

6. Musketeer Miniatures, have several new miniatures available in time for xmas and beyond, first up are the Brigand Characters for Inter War gaming (1920-1938), though these guys could always be used as partisans in a WW2 game. They’ve been primarily sculpted for the game, A Very British Civil War, but that shouldn’t stop you getting them for a pulp game or as partisans for a WW2 battle. These guys are very nicely sculpted and full of character. I especially like the guy with the fur shoulders, he could quite happily be a leader of bandits, mercenaries or partisans.
Another range that musketeer produces are the dark ages, these are really lovely miniatures. I myself recently bought some of the range for a small dark age skirmish, which will become an article for Irregular Magazine issue 4. New for this range are the Goths, on the website is a photo of some of these guys painted, they look really great. Just the chaps to make the late Roman army tremble with fear.
