Clearing the shelf, part II: Swamp Goblin blowing their own pipes

I still have some recalcitrant shelf sitters that stand around cluttering up my little trays of “to do” minis. So we start with trying to get a sort of fresh-ish start for the new year. In the spirit of clearing away some old sins, here are some more of the Chronopia Swamp Goblins. This time around, we come to the Blowpipes.

A full group of six (the contents of a blister pack) and their leader (sold separately) put on 20mm round bases, as I thought they fit the small goblins better.

Year’s End Shelf Clearing: Chronopia Swamp Goblins!

The End is Nigh and the built up clutter on my little shelf needs to go.

 

We start with this little squad of Swamp Goblins from the defunct game Chronopia.

Rather uninspired. I simply could not be bothered to go that extra mile with these, which is probably why they have been sitting on the shelf for months on end. Now they are passably painted, but only just. And off the shelf.

The other – Chronopia Unliving

The second zombie for Frostgrave, the other Chronopia Unliving:

Chronopia squaddies usually came in packs of 4, with 2 each of 2 seperate sculpts. This is the other sculpt, the first being done a week or so ago.

Chronopia Unliving = Frostgrave zombie.

From Ye Pile of Olde hails this excellent zombie barbarian from the defunct game Chronopia. Looks like this one was sculpted by Kev White.

Mervyn will be needing something to raise, after all.

Chronopia Skeletal Dwarf Swordsman

From Ye Pile of Olde comes this little gem:

Basically an armoured lump, with a big skull on top, and actually a good representation of a skeletonized dwarf from this game. The skull might be a tad on the large side though.

There was once a blister pack with (I think they were called) Devout skeleton swordsmen. This pack was special in that it actually had 4 different miniatures, one each of dwarf, elf, human and blackblood skeletons, while most other 4 figure blister packs had two identical pairs in each. I will see if I can find the other skeletons from this pack.

The Devout faction being the evil Chronopia faction that roughly would be equivalent to Chaos in Warhammer.
