I got our next shipment of Khurasan minis and I’m pretty impressed. Out of their usual higher than average quality I’ve come to expect, I ordered a couple of their “character” figs. Check this out:
Ok, my iPhone camera just CANNOT pick up the detail on this thing. I need a goddamn jeweler’s loupe to see it. While this is a miniature I feel every self-respecting gamer who appreciates miniatures should own, I am coming to terms with the fact that I just can’t paint it to the standards it deserves.
Here’s what Khurasan’s painter was able to do. Same mini, now….
You see what I’m saying? This thing is literally just a head and neck longer than my thumbnail. I literally cannot paint this miniature, it’s beyond my ability. It sucks. Now that I’m older I’ve got the experience, tools and a decent assortment of paint…but don’t have the eyesight.
Is this the dude from Half-Life, or is this the dude from Half-Life? I think it’s the dude from Half-Life and he looks AWESOME. I got all the character minis and they’re all AWESOME.
Oh, Khurasan takes forever to ship, but dammit I have to say it’s worth the wait. What held him up this time were those new hummer-type vehicles, which I must say are also…spectacular.
Ok, so I got soooooo much new stuff since Friday before last. Stay tuned, we’re gaming tonight with new scenery (not quite finished, but a decent WIP) and I’ll put pictures of all the minis I got. I’m still waiting on some of the stuff I ordered from the Brits.
Stay tuned, more to come!
