As mentioned in my introduction
, I've long been a player/collector of Heroquest and miniature hobby enthusiast.
These last few months I've been turning my attention to modifying HQ miniatures and remaking bases, with an aim to keep to the classic, minimal aesthetics of the original models. Which often means raiding eBay and buying old school plastic kits. The following are new heroes I have put together so far, with only a little putty work left to finish them before paint : Warning : Graphic Mutilation of OOP Heroquest plastic models ahead, reader discretion is advised.The Dwarves : Older warrior & Clansman. The Others : Empire Hero (modified Adv.Heroquest Man at Arms) and a fairly obvious rebasing of the Talisman 3rd Edition Halfling (Least inspiring addition)
I have also been collecting Kev Adams models from the late 80's period, prior to finishing their bases, thought you may like a side by side comparison of HQ Orcs and Warhammer 1st Edition orcs (who are more slight than the HQ Orc) :
The HQ orc I will paint closer to the card art next time; black belt, more mustard shirt and less rich brown boots and possibly lose the ruddy lip.Further projects
Moving on thought folks might like to see where I began then now, and also a metal take on our favourite Elf (he has a bow, quiver and satchel on the back, my favourite WHqst figure short of my Bret.Knight) Finally, a community poll :Kev Adams snotlings
, or Brian Nelson snotlings?

I'm torn between both sculptors' style and can't decide which set of runts to go with, basically need to bounce the conundrum off fellow enthusiasts, your thoughts? thanks for reading,
