Welcome to my new blog. Sure, there are lots of miniatures blogs on the web but I enjoy looking at them, and hope that you'll enjoy seeing mine. I'm particularly interested in vintage miniatures and the initial focus of this blog will be on my current obsession: collecting Archive and Asgard miniatures. I'm sure there will be other old-school goodness like Grenadier and Ral Partha minis, as well as some more recent miniatures that catch my somewhat eclectic fancy as well. I've not found a lot of miniatures painting blogs on the web focusing on vintage minis so I figured maybe I'd add my own to the mix. Feel free to leave a comment suggesting any of which I might be unaware.
So what started my current obsession with Archive and Asgard? Looking at some old Dragon magazine ads like this one:
blog. Anyway, I find the oddness and clunkiness of a lot of these old miniatures very charismatic.
While I've got a small collection of them, I've only painted one of my Archive miniatures, RV86 aka Hardy Toot Toot:
