Those are fab! :D

I hope you don't mind that I've linked this post to another Pratchett site where people have been asking about getting figures painted. :wink:

Not at all - In fact I really appreciate it - I love painting these guys!

Just to be crystal clear - I only painted the last five.

I hope to get the opportunity to paint the others soon.

It's just struck me looking at this lovely figure - does Nanny Ogg bear a passing resemblance to Mrs Fox, beloved of Cpl. Jones in Dad's Army...
Are they twins? I think we should be told... :P

Surprised no one here has beaten me to it...

The latest "greens" by Kul Asyrk are on the coolminiornot website, which means they will soon be available for sale as multi-part metal miniatures from MicroArt Studios.

They are Twoflower, Otto Shriek, Mustrum Ridcully, Esme Weatherwax II and Giamo Casanunda. I have posted pictures to my blog http://tiannastarfall.blogspot.com/. The pictures are quite long as they are multi-angle shots of each figure so I thought it best not to fill up the forum!

I am not really sure about the latest Esme Weatherwax, but the others are spot on I think!

I do like these a lot - I don't know if I'll actually get any, but we'll see. :)

I dislike them. You can buy them in the UK as well now. Unpainted of course. Paul Kidby's site http://www.paulkidby.com/miniatures/index.html

Bought the first ones from the original site and realised that there was no way I could paint them with my hand problems. The lowest price I have been quoted was £10 per figure.

It would seem an awful shame to use them as game figures though. Being so small it would also be difficult displaying them.

I have a few of the old Clarecraft pewter figures Blu-Tac-ed to the top of my computer monitor. They look pretty good there and can been seen quite easily.

If you don't feel able to paint them, why not spray paint them silver or bronze. They'd look pretty cool like that. :D

That's a good idea but they would go underneath my monitor. I used to have the minature Myth and Magic figures collection there until recently. It seems a lot better than having them stuck in their containers not even glued together.

I think Gareth would like me to buy the complete set and get them painted. He can damn well stick them together though. They are so small. I agree that they are so much better cast than the CC pewters but I just can't take to them.

That's a shame, as I like the ones I have Paul Kidby desiged them so they are pretty acurate I do like them painted though not sure I have the skill, but will have to get my finger out and have a go as I now have the brushes and paint. Image

I've got 4 pewter figurines, The Discworld, Granny Weatherax, Death on Binky and Rincewind on Ninereeds.
I wish that I had more, but I won't pay silly prices for them!
