Yep the Dwarf is the D&D Chainmail one by Roy.The others are looking good for proxying as other troop types too.
 I have a miniature that Roy did that I want to use as an ally for my Dwarves.It is a human with a staff with a boar on it.He is really cool and my thoughts are to use him as a Leader/Standard Bearer to go with a unit of Bowmen.This will give the Dwarves a much needed missile unit.
  Any help with this would be apprieciated.

 Got the Vulture Marksman half painted and I have made a Wolf Blood Totem.Gospog inspired me with his one.
 Will hopefully get them painted this week and post pictures too.

Thanks for the link to that, Miner.  That Ring of Rule bull is perfect for a War Torkha.

I have finished the Vulture Marksman and the War Torkha just needs the second rider.I would have posted pictures today but the batteries are dead and need charging.So they will be posted tommorrow.
 The Wolf Blood Totem is Half done and I have started on a Wolf Scavenger figure.
 The project after these are done is a big one and Top Secret at the moment.Then after that one is done it will be the largest I will have tried so far.
 So many things to do and no time to do them.

I was hoping for some here as I have seen a lot this past year.  As for the lead-free question...the models made by Excelsior were lead free.  Targets were in the beginning (in the USA) but not necessarily in the end.  The models in Europe were not required to be lead-free and the target ones were not, which included the ones in Ireland now at Prince August.

If this link works, here's my Mauler for Chronopia.  Bad pic, model done ages ago.  Kinda cartoony, but at least I can put'em on the board!

There's so many great models out there, so little time, and so little money.  I just picked up some Hell Dorado figs.  The big "Brotherhood of the Wolf" wolf will have to be put together, and even sans one head, it'll do better as a Wolf Clan Totem than the Mordheim "Thing in the Woods" models I'm using now.  Those are just BIG rats....

Anyway, let's see what else we can come up with in the coming year.

P.S.  Andy--you really should try the Street Fight rules we've been kicking around.  Fast, smaller size skirmish that plays just as much fun as the bigger games.

 I have not played any games of Chronopia or Warzone yet,Big or Small.
 The Hell Dorado miniatures are very nicely done.I still have not got around to getting the last two releases.
 I have been tracking down other oop games including Inferno Battles of the Abyss.Alex collects these too.

 looking forward to making more conversions to fill in gaps in the New Year.
