Prince Zuko

For those fans of the Nickelodeon series, like me, I present my version of Prince Zuko in 28mm. This is a Hasslefree miniature "Tanshiro". Note the Fire Nation symbol on the front. I even painted his face scar. It is kind of hard to see at this resolution but my photobucket site has a bigger version. I am waiting on an order to I can paint up an Air bender. I have already finished an Earth Bender "Isawa Tadaka" from the Clan War line. There are several reaper miniatures I am interested in ordering as well. Another line has some sweet miniatures is Anima Tactics by Fantasy Flight games. I will most likely pick some of these up later in the year. I also have some ideas for a quick skirmish game for these benders.

Another Cabin

I had this idea of using rawhide dog chews for making a cabin. What do you think? This is sposed to be a crude and hasty built shelter. I found out that the chews are weaker than I expected and that many broke during construction.

If I did this again I would just use them as is and stack them alternately. That would have lave large gaps but that would be fine. I would just need to find things to stuff in them. I'm thinking putty and some pine branches (to scale of course) would be a good idea.

I also found out that I should have built this one level at a time instead of one wall at a time which made it a bear to try and fit together. Thank heaven for pva glue and putty.
