The Portable Fantasy Game

Rob Dean

I have had a little time for painting this past week, and worked on some 1/72 scale plastic figures for the Portable Fantasy Game.  I decided to pull out all of the already-completed individually based figures, and do a quick visual inventory.  Here’s an overview of the 112 figures completed so far.

Individually based figures for the Portable Fantasy Game, as of 3 February 2019
For scenario planning purposes, I took closer shots of them in groups.
Non-human monsters

The monsters are a mixed bag; there are a few Reaper Bones (downscaled, as it were), a few figures from Age of Mythology sprues, and a demon from a Dante boardgame of some sort.

Mounted humans (Strelets and an Airfix Maid Marian)

There will probably be a few more mounted humans before this is “done”.

The Adventurers (Caesar Miniatures)

I noticed after I took the picture that two Caesar adventurers are hanging out with the elves today.

A merry group of men from the Airfix Robin Hood set

One of the unfinished figures is another Robin Hood fellow; I expect to have a full set of the poses (and perhaps a few duplicates) before calling this group done.  They hold up pretty well, for figures sculpted over 50 years ago.

Elves (Caesar Miniatures)

The archer lady in green near the center and the Legolas look-alike, second from the left in the front, are the wanderers from the Adventurers.  I have a standard bearer for the elves on my painting desk.

Undead (Caesar)
While I’d be happy for more skeletons, the Caesar set has only five poses, so I started with two of each.  There’s a necromancer in the set that I haven’t painted yet; I pulled one out and cleaned him up.
Fantastical men of the Western Isles (Red Box Irish)
The Red Box Wars of the Roses Irish look pretty fantastical to me, especially that gallowglass leader on the left end of the front row.
Some NPCs (Mostly Linear B Tudors)

Plastic civilians aren’t too common in 1/72, but I’ve painted a few.  Strelets has more, in their transport sets, which will be added eventually.

Some drafted historical medievals (Accurate and Strelets)

Back in the day, fantasy figures were usually supplemented by historicals…

Mystics? (and a dog)
The blue wizard is a Hat Celtic command set Druid.
Goblins and Orcs (Caesar)

More Orcs and Wargs (Dark Alliance)

I’ve got plenty of additional orcs, between the two boxes that Caesar now makes and the many that Dark Alliance has produced.

    Why didn’t you enter this into the Battle in a Box contest? Looks good.
