I got the King Arthurs's Romano British set from Hegemony Miniatures.

My favourite is Merlin here who paints up a treat.

Hegemony are in the early stages, in fact this was one of the first five sets. For this set they used a very soft rubbery plastic which was a challenge to paint. So this set is not for the absolute novice. I replaced Merlin's staff for a hard plastic spear with the end cut off (from a HaT set).

Hegemony say they are using harder plastic from now on and I'm sure they will go from strength to strength.

Below we have Merlin as Baelor the Blessed flanked by a couple of Targaryen guards. Yes, more Game of Thrones shenanigans. The guards are Caesar knights.

Name those figures

Name those figures. I think the lower two may be Call of Arms but the Kellogs one defies my internet research. Looks a bit like Prince Valiant. Any ideas? They are all 1/32ish.

They were 10 p each so no complaints from me!

EDIT: According to this the top 'kellogs' figure is 'Prince Swinging sword' so a Prince Valiant rip-off
The others are 'Accurate' American War of Independence British and the bottom two are Replicants confederates (also released by Marxmen and A Call to Arms). Thanks to the experts at Benno's!

Hate the Game, not the Flayer

I am far from the first to try to paint Game of Thrones in 1/72. That will not stop me however. To kick off we have those nasty flayers House Bolton. Their arms are a flayed man on pink and their words are 'Our Blades are Sharp' or 'Sausages for Tea' alternatively.The figures is a Caesar Medieval European Knight 13th Century.
