This weekend I've played a game of And One For All. A fast, easy but very funny "Cinematic Swashbuckling with Miniatures" game that you can download for free from the Eureka Miniatures website.
Everything was much improvisational.
We played on my prototype of the Tavern. This dummy was built (from the cardboard of one record shipping box) just to see if the size is right. It was not. The 2nd floor gangway should be even higher. But now I have also a clue where to place the stairs and the doors. A very successful game you could say. On the picture you can also see the interior I built from the same cardboard and sprayed brown. An there are my new real wooden barrels! I like them very much, they're looking good and you can treat them careless without the fear of damaging the painting.
You can see on the in-game picture my new miniatures, too! The bare metal ones. They were actually from my friend. He didn't liked them much but I spontaneously decided I want to start collecting that line. So to get them in trade was the only thing I could do! They're all from Julie Guthrie's Fantasy Personalities.
Here's a picture of them I took later.
I think I've already some lying around somewhere but I consider these as the first 10 of my new collection. They're all very nice sculpted, with interesting details and full of character. All true 25mm, so they won't mix well with more modern figures. But that's OK. There are enough to use only them. To be exact: 99 figures!
If you can't remember them all, here I've got the two pages from the Grenadier Models catalogue. Besides of the "Fantasy Personalities" single miniatures there was also a line of blister packs with 3 different (but similar, e.g. 3 warriors, 3 elves, ...) figures each, all sculpted by Julie Guthrie. And there was a sequel to that line, made by the same sculptor, with another 50 or 60 individual figures. But I'm not sure if I should start collecting them too.
When I've got collected enough of them I'll start painting them and replace the pictures in the catalogue with pictures of my own figures.
