what stuff looks like!In fact, what do I want my stuff to look like? The cause of this unusual navel gazing is the quantity of unfinished things on my desk. Do I really have a clear vision of the appearance of the toys that I want to play with? Fortunately, the answer is yes, its just that I have not expressed it nor codified it.
So, over the past couple of weeks I have been collecting examples of things that I like the look of so that I can get a better feel for the direction I want to go in. What do I really like then.....
I like shiny
Here are some great pictures of shiny troops on a hex grid. Not any just any old troops but Bavarians!
These are from the Douglas Miniatures blog which features lots of old figures. These are Minifigs and Garrison. I especially like the simple bases. The pictures show a hex grid conversion of the Neil Thomas Napoleonic rules, how cool is that.
I like grids
Here is a nice square grid conversion of the CnC Napoleonics game with nice toys.
I really like the way this looks, very picturesque from the air!
And equally nice at ground level. These are from the blog by Epicetus.
I also like this irregular grid, just used as scenery, from the Toy Soldiers and Dining Room Battles blog.
I like non-shiny bases
More from Douglas Miniatures.....
Shiny troops and non-shiny bases. The latter issue is one of my current problems. I quite like these!
