My first 10mm Fantasy Figures

10mm GW Battle of Five Armies Human Spearmen Face a 25mm Ral Partha Dragon

10mm GW Battle of Five Armies Human Spearmen Face a 25mm Ral Partha Dragon

I took a quick break from 10mm Prussians to try my hand at 10mm fantasy figures.  These are from the Games Workshop Battle of Five Armies starter set.  They are mounted for the under-development Look, Sarge, No Charts rules set for fantasy, ancients, and mediaeval warfare.  I always thought the old Ral Partha dragons were underscale compared to their 25mm figures.  I think the dragon looks about right compared to the infantry.

Because these figures are mounted on strips, they paint rather quickly.  GW recommends that you leave the strips on the sprues while painting them.  I have two BOFA sets that I bought second hand.  One set was till on the sprues, while the other was already removed.  I actually think they were easier to paint after being removed.

The standard base size for LSNC rules sets is 3″ wide and 1.5″ deep.  It takes four of the GW strips to fill a base at this size.  A BOFA set includes six strips of these figures (men with spears).  Two sets, then, have enough figures for three bases of spearmen.

Now back to Prussian landwehr cavalry!
